There are people like me who recognize and support the idea of Black Lives Matter without requiring ad nauseam assurances that it doesn't mean that other lives don't. Living proof that one doesn't have to be an antisemite to support Palestinian aspirations for self-determination and a homeland (a two-state solution, not a river to the sea eradication of Israel). Supportive of Israel’s right to exist and defend herself, while vociferously opposed to narcissistic, self-interested criminals like Bibi Netanyahu and the policies he enacts under Israel’s name. Actively supportive of LGBT demands for full and equal rights and women's rights (especially reproductive freedom and autonomy over their bodies). And, more importantly, have been vocal and active in participating in marches, rallies and protests in solidarity with all these causes, ideals and aspirations for decades.
