The Jewish Voice for Peace

The Jewish Voice for Peace comes under sustain attacks from the Jewish Zionists. They are Jews who go against the current flow and support the human rights of the Palestinians.

From their website:

The use of name-calling like “anti-Semites” and “delegtimizers” is problematic for a number of reasons, not only because its claims are untrue, but also because it takes the focus off the real issue at hand – whether and how Israel is, in fact, violating international law and basic human rights principles – and, instead, recklessly impugns the characters of those advocating for Israel to be held accountable. Criticisms, even extremely harsh ones, of the Israeli state or calls to make a state democratic and adhere to equal rights for all its citizens are not anti-Semitic. Rather, anti-Semitism is about hatred of, and discrimination against the Jewish people, which is not anywhere to be found in the call for BDS, and these kinds of accusations also serve to trivialize the long and ugly history of anti-Semitism.
They call for disinvestment and boycotting Israel.

True servants of God bewail the nation. They do not collude with evil. We should be cutting up our garments, wearing sackcloth and ashes, weeping, praying and fasting for the evil that has befallen us as our ancestors of old. Read the Torah and Prophets.

Good luck to these Jews who want to make positive changes.
