Category: Uncategorized ,

June 2007 marks the 40th anniversary of the Israeli occupation of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank including East Jerusalem and the Golan. May 2008 will be the 60th anniversary of the Nakba, the catastrophe of 1948 in which Zionist militant forces destroyed more than 500 Palestinian villages through massacre and intimidation, and at least 750,000 Palestinian people became refugees. These are terrible anniversaries: they call our attention and demand our response.

Central to this commitment is solidarity with Arab liberation struggles against US imperialism and Zionism.

JewishCommunity Relations Council

…you donot speak for us!

The JewishCommunity Relations Council consistently claims a monopoly on being “the Jewishvoice”. It claims that its unconditional support for Israel’s policies and practices isthe consensus within the “organized Jewish community.”  It claims that any Jew who disagrees with theIsrael/US agenda for Palestine and the Middle East cannot claim a voice within the Jewish community.  Against this claim, we stand here in opposition to this celebration of the60th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel thatdisplaced over 800,000 indigenous Palestinians from their homeland.
