Petition: Drop Charges Against Activists

Quick Action!




On May 12, 2015, two Jewish anti-apartheid activists, Daniel Fischer and Gregory Williams, entered a fundraiser for the Israeli military at Temple Israel synagogue in Westport, Connecticut, and attempted to read testimony of a Palestinian woman whose son was killed during Israel’s 2009 massacre in Gaza.

“We were there, first and foremost, because we are Jews,” Williams said, “and we wanted to take responsibility for the racism in our community that fuels Jewish American support for the Zionist Apartheid regime’s continued occupation of Palestinian land.”

Temple staff responded by throwing both protesters to the ground and filing a false police complaint that the two were armed. Yet Daniel and Gregory were arrested and charged with breach of peace and criminal trespassing in the first degree.

Warren, comfy in AIPAC's pocket

File:Elizabeth Warren at Women In Finance symposium.jpg

Elizabeth Warren, in August 2014, " . . . steadfastly defended her 'pro-Israel' vote, invoking the politician’s platitude: 'We’re going to have to agree to disagree on this one.' " 

In response to questions about the $225 million she voted to send to the Israelis, she said:  "I think the vote was right, and I’ll tell you why I think the vote was right. America has a very special relationship with Israel."

Check out the details and the rest of her pro-Israeli dialog here:  Elizabeth Warren Sounds Like Netanyahu.


Excellent commentary on Warren's pro-Israeli dialog, which is quoted in the article linked above, can be found in this archive of the Kyle Kulinski show:  Sen. Warren Defends Gaza School & Hospital Attacks.


In November 2014, Warren visited Israel, and met with her hero, Netanyahu.  This visit is looked upon as evidence that Warren is in the Israeli's pocket, which is discussed and documented in the following article:  Elizabeth Warren Visits Netanyahu.


A visit, today, to Warren's website, clearly shows her dedication to Israel.  "I unequivocally support the right of a Jewish, democratic state of Israel to exist, and to be safe and secure."  To the uninformed, uneducated person, this may seem like a fair statement.  However, we must ask ourselves if a democracy can ever be founded on ethnic cleansing, discrimination, and breach of international law.

Ms. Warren goes on to state, "To me, it is a moral imperative to support and defend Israel, and I am committed to ensuring its long-term security by maintaining its qualitative military edge:"  This is a military edge, mind you, that is used to mow down, oppress, disenfranchise, and profit from Palestinian people and their land.

Hungry for Sustainability?

The world hungers for sustainability, and yet we rarely seem to find it.  Meanwhile, we have an ancient and living model of sustainability within our reach.  Struggling to exist in the cradle of civilization, is a culture that has tended the land gently for thousands of years. (1)  Steadfast families still live in small villages, surrounded by fields, orchards, grazing lands, and woodlands that together supply nearly all the people’s needs.  But the world, rather than flocking to learn these ancient lessons of sustainability has turned its back.  These families, this land, suffers under grave and violent threat. (2) 

The photo is of a young man working in his family's field in the Palestinian village of Artas, famous for its Romaine Lettuce. (3) Israeli restrictions on travel to and within Palestine make it difficult or impossible for people to come to buy and trade from the source as they did decades ago. (4) Israel also controls all Palestinian business, the movement and sale of goods within Palestine, as well as imports and exports. (5)  This imperiled ancient culture needs our protection.  We hope that the more you learn, the more you will care.

(1)  The ancient history of this culture is well documented. “ . . . a Neolithic agricultural civilization arose  . . . perhaps as early as 7000 BC  . . . " E.O. James, Archeologist: 

(2) To learn about the on-going threat facing these families, we recommend the movie, ‘5 Broken Cameras:’

(5) ‘Israel’s Predatory Economics,’ are covered here:  Be sure to read the article in comments as well. 

Be the Change!

The oppression and colonization of Palestine has been going on for over 60 years.  Powerful countries have failed to come to the aid of the Palestinian people, because what is being done to them is of benefit to large wealthy corporations.  It is up to us to be the change.  Please explore our boycott list to see how you may be supporting the erasure of traditional sustainable practices from the Holy Land:

We also encourage you to take additional nonviolent action in any large or small ways you can.  We have a list of letter writing campaigns and petitions you can sign, and we are starting to share other more involved actions as well.  Whether you have a few minutes or a few weeks, months, or years—there is something you can do! Check our blog every Thursday for calls to action:   Quick actions are also very easy to find:

Thank you!  It is up to us to create the kind of world we want to live in!



Boycott for Peace would like to feature an article or meme about Palestinian sustainable practices at least a few times a year or even once a month.  We need your help to do this. If you find articles that address Palestinian sustainable practices be sure to share them with us.  If you live in or visit Palestine and can take photos and notes relating to traditional food production, we can help you polish them up and present them to the public.  The wisdom we all need to survive is being imperiled.  Let’s let the world know!
