New York Assemblymember Phara Souffrant Forrest had racked up more than 300 replies to her #FreePalestine post before deleting it, so we were disappointed not to get to read them. We did have her tweet in our cache, though, and her map of Palestine certainly … invites discussion.
Huh … there seems to be a country missing — a country that’s a United States ally.

As far as I know there was never a ‘country’ called ‘Palestine’ … jus sayin’.

I knew people hated jews, I guess I didn’t realize just how many and just how much. Silly me, guess they left that out in Hebrew school.

She did explain why she deleted it:
I deleted a previous tweet that led to misunderstandings about my position. ⁰⁰My position has always been about peace and justice. ⁰I stand against apartheid because I believe that all people deserve to live under equal rights regardless of ethnicity or religion.
