"CEO of my former employer Google @sundarpichai has posted twice about events in Palestine in the past week. First to voice concern for Israeli workers in Google Israel offices. Second to call out antisemitism. But not a word about Palestinians or Palestinian Google workers," a user named Ariel Koren posted on X responding to Sundar Pichai's post against antisemitism.

“Sundar said NOTHING when thousands of employees said #NoTechforApartheid & demanded Google stop building AI for the Israeli military. In a week the military has killed over 2,000 Gazans and ordered 1 million to evacuate or face death. Yet you still say nothing @sundarpichai," Ariel Koren said.

“Israeli military left Palestinians nowhere to go, cut off food, water, aid. Left to die without electricity or medical care. This is genocide. You are endorsing it with your silence (and with your #ProjectNimbus contract). This moral depravity is your legacy, @sundarpichai," she added in the thread.
