That statement came in the context of the Gaza War.

It’s now apparent to me that I spent lots of energy putting my 2012 tweet in context and little energy is disavowing the anti-semitic trope I unknowingly used, which is unfortunate and offensive.
With that said, it is important to distinguish between criticizing a military action by a government and attacking a particular people of faith.

I will not shy away of criticism of any government when I see injustice —whether it be Saudi Arabia, Somalia, even our own government!
As a survivor of war, the acts of war justified or not will always be acts of evil to me.

Like #MLK90, I unapologetically believe “Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind."
It is important that when you see oppression taking place - when you see our values being attacked as humans - you stand up, and it doesn't matter who the inhabitors of that particular region might be. 

Whether it is your father, your brother or your sister, you speak up.
There are many narratives of who and what I am, designed to demonize and vilify me.

It’s being building since my early days as an organizer. A concussion didn’t deter me and smears certainly won’t . I fought for my seat at the table & will use it to fight a more peaceful world!
