Ariel Gold is classic useful idiot, who use their Jewish blood as a justification for promoting vile racism and hatred toward Jews. She is an anti-Israel provocateur, a strong advocate of the antisemitic BDS movement and co-director of Codepink, a radical social justice NGO that is proud of its relationship with terror groups.
While Codepink adamantly claims to be committed to non-violence, it has openly supported the use of violence against Israelis as legitimate“resistance” and has direct ties to US-designated terror organizations. It has extensively documented its numerous visits to Hamas in Gaza, has publicly endorsed the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist Khalida Jarrar, and has engaged with Hezbollah as well as with Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Not only is Codepink funneling terrorist ideologies into the US, but through its relationship with other BDS organizations, particularly the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), it is systematically radicalizing American students on college campuses.
Gold herself has demonstrated against Israel, disrupted public events and been arrested (in both Israel and the United States) for public disturbance. Gold was denied entry into Israel for her support of the delegitimization of the Country.
Her political activism to delegitimize the State of Israel began in late 2008, when she joined Jewish Voice for Peace, JVP (Ithaca), an inherently antisemitic organization that advocates for violence against Jews and the destruction of Israel.
One of Gold's most disturbing acts was coordinating a 5-week U.S. speaking tour for Palestinian propagandist Bassem Tamimi, whose U.S. visa has since been revoked. Gold brought him to a third-grade classroom in Ithaca, New York, where he encouraged grade-school children to become "freedom fighters for Palestine." An investigation by the Ithaca City School District determined Tamimi’s anti-Israel presentation to the 8 and 9-year olds to be “politically skewed" and “inflammatory."
Ariel Gold is very active on social media and uses her Facebook and Twitter accounts almost exclusively to spread anti-Israel propoganda and rally behind the antisemitic organizations and individuals she collaborates with.
In January 2019, she tweeted for Palestinians to stop selling their homes to Jews.
In March 2019, she tweeted her support for antisemite Congresswoman Ilhan Omar while in Congressswoman Rashida Tlaib's office.
In August 2019, she tweeted equating the El Paso Shooting on Jewish White Nationalism.
On November 28-30th, 2019 Ariel Gold will be the only Jewish speaker at the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) annual conference in Chicago along with other prominent antisemites like Linda Sarsour, Mark Lamont Hill, and Hatem Bazian. AMP's staff and board members push antisemitic conspiracies, promote antisemitism and fund-raise for Hamas.
