Something to Agree on?

Can’t we all at least agree that this was an extremely clumsy sentence from Academy Award-winning Zone of Interest director Jonathan Glazer that invited misinterpretation?

Right now we stand here as men who refute their Jewishness and the Holocaust being hijacked by an occupation which has led to conflict for so many innocent people, whether the victims of October the 7th in Israel or the ongoing attack on Gaza.

I assume he meant that they repudiate (why would this British guy say “refute”?) Israel’s hijacking both Judaism and the memory of Hitler’s victims in a cause that has produced such horrible consequences for both the Israelis and Palestinians.
