Jews Organize Boycott of Israel

Around twenty Jewish organizations, along with some prominent Jewish figures, have endorsed a letter calling for sanctions against Israel and a boycott of Israeli goods and institutions.

These boycotts and sanctions are “a moral tool of non-violent, peaceful response to more than sixty years of Israeli colonialism” which “rightfully place accountability on Israeli institutions (and their allies and partners) that use business, cultural, and academic ties to white-wash Israel’s responsibility for continuing crimes against humanity.”

In a related story, prominent ex-White House journalist Helen Thomas, who was fired last year for uttering anti-Israeli statements, continued her tirade this week, saying “I’m not anti-Jewish; I’m anti-Zionist. I am anti-Israel. It has taken what doesn’t belong to it. If you have a home and you’re kicked out of that home, you don’t come and kick someone else out.”

The world is waking up to the reality of the Israel-Palestine situation. As Israel gets exposed for their continued atrocities, the world will keep mounting pressure to help end the plight of the Palestinian people.
