“This is the ongoing Nakba: Celebrating the annexation of Jerusalem while gunning down Palestinian protesters”

Ordförande för JVP Jewish Voices for Peace Rebecca Vilkomerson:

“Monday I thought was one of the most disgraceful days in the history of the Israeli relationship to Palestinians, with the celebration of annexation – even as Palestinians, the vast majority of whom are refugees, were being gunned down, just for protesting their basic rights to live in dignity and freedom,” Vilkomerson said.

“The idea that this is being done in our name, or being justified in our name, is absolutely unacceptable.”

“Often organizations like JVP get a lot of pressure from Jewish institutions because we’re speaking out so strongly for Palestinian rights. But … there’s a lot of people who feel alienated from their Jewishness, because of the way that Jewish institutions are mindlessly supporting Israel. People are finding their way back to us, and back to their Jewishness, through places like JVP.”
