Do they know or recognize their own hypocrisy?

Last October, an Australian Zionist youth movement opened a Zoom call for its young leaders with an “Acknowledgement of Country.” The group, in which I’d been active as a teenager and which had invited me to speak about my anti-occupation activism in the U.K. and Palestine-Israel, recognized the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation as the traditional owners of the land, paid tribute to elders past and present, and affirmed that “sovereignty was never ceded.”
