Watson’s January 2 post featured various pro-Palestinian protesters holding “Free Palestine” signs and the words “Solidarity is a verb.” Her caption included a lengthy quote from feminist scholar Sara Ahmed stating in part that solidarity “involves commitment, and work, as well as the recognition that even if we do not have the same feelings, or the same lives, or the same bodies, we do live on common ground.” Erdan tweeted out a screenshot of Watson’s post and wrote: “Fiction may work in Harry Potter but it does not work in reality. If it did, the magic used in the wizarding world could eliminate the evils of Hamas (which oppresses women & seeks the annihilation of Israel) and the PA [Palestinian Authority] (which supports terror). I would be in favor of that!” Erdan was referencing the fact that Watson starred in the Harry Potter movies as the character Hermione Granger." *** The largest online progressive news show in the world.
