Re: Help! Police! There's a group of little kids singing songs of peace at usAuthor

Jewish Voice for Peace and Women in Black are certainly partners in crime, and in hypocricy. At their recent conference in California, Jewish Voice for Peace called for a proposal to add stronger language to their mission statement condemning anti-Semitism. That in itself is laudable. Racism and bigotry in all its incarnations should be opposed. What absolutely floored me was its rational, as proposed by Glen Hauer and Howard Lenow, both National Board Members of JVP.
“By letting Jews know that we take anti-Semitism seriously and not just as a bogus charge our opponents make, we address some of their concerns and fears. This brings us closer and makes us more inviting to them”.
And
“We gain credibility and stature among our church allies if they see us as being proudly Jewish and opposing anti-Semitism while we also fight the occupation”
To Jewish Voice for Peace, anti-Semitism must be opposed because it’s a coherent part of a good marketing plan. It’s a way to increase market share and broader a base of support. For real activists in the movement for global justice only one reason is needed to fight anti-Semitism, and that is simply because it is wrong.
