Defend Palestine's Supporters

Quick Action!

Defend Palestine Supporters from "ANTI-SEMITISM" Slander

"Unfounded accusations of anti-Semitism directed at Palestine supporters -- many of them Jewish -- are nothing new. Today, these attacks are a desperate response to escalating support for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which demands an end to the 1967 Occupation, right of return for Palestinian refugees, and full equality for Palestinian citizens of Israel. This campaign explicitly condemns all forms of racism, including anti-Semitism. 

"Those Jewish students who close their eyes to Israel's ongoing crimes against the Palestinian people will inevitably be made “uncomfortable” by such protests, no matter what form they take. Supporters of apartheid South Africa or Jim Crow no doubt felt the same when confronted by protest against those regimes. Indeed, the right to protest was attacked on similarly unconstitutional grounds during earlier civil rights, antiwar, and anti-apartheid movements."
