Speak Up Dear Jews Against Fascism!


Where are the western citizens who consider themselves to be jewish and therefore support the fascist zionist state, that in their name slaughters Palestinian citizens? The jews have experienced a holocaust, like the black people did before them and the Indians in America, and other peoples who stood in the way of the christian western so called progress.  Did the jews learn from this experience? Why don't they collectively protest against the fascism of their Jewish state, which ethnically cleansed Palestine to make room for first of all western jews. Nowadays some of them even defend this fascism, and only learned from the nazi's how to destroy another population. Speak up  dear jews and stop hiding yourselves behind the excuse of antisemitism. The longer you remain silent, the more antisemitic you yourselves become. Also the Palestinians are a semitic people.  

American Jews Stand Against the U.S. Embassy Move and Israel’s Mass Killing of Protesters in Gaza

WASHINGTON - As the ceremony to open the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem is taking place, Israeli military forces are killing Palestinian protesters in Gaza. In moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, U.S. President Trump is cementing the U.S. - Israeli partnership to annex Jerusalem and further repress Palestinian rights.

“This is the ongoing Nakba,” said Rebecca Vilkomerson, Executive Director of Jewish Voice for Peace. “The celebration of annexation, even as Palestinians – the vast majority of whom are refugees – are being gunned down simply for protesting for their basic rights to live in dignity and freedom, could not illustrate more clearly the continuing catastrophe that Israel is imposing on Palestinians. Still worse, it’s doing so with the full collusion of the U.S.”

The scenes of celebration at the new embassy, even as Israeli military forces use deadly violence against protesting Palestinians in Gaza, are appalling. At least 43 demonstrators have already been killed today and 1,700 wounded, as of 11.30am.

The blessing by Pastor Robert Jeffress at the opening of the U.S. Embassy exemplifies the disgraceful approach of the Trump administration to Israel/Palestine.  Pastor Jeffries is a Christian Zionist who is outspoken in his proclamations that members of every religion except Christianity – including Jews, Muslims, Mormons, Hindus and Buddhists – are going to hell, among other reprehensible beliefs.

Since the demonstrations in Gaza began, Jewish Voice for Peace chapters have organized or participated in over 45 demonstrations, vigils and protests across the country in solidarity with Palestinians’ right to protest and to demand a better life.
Rabbi Joseph Berman, Manager of Government Affairs and Grassroots Advocacy for JVP, said: “Jerusalem is a symbol of wholeness, liberation, and hope. Trump’s immoral and irresponsible move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem desecrates the city, goes against international consensus, and contributes to the ongoing occupation and displacement of Palestinians.”

Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb, a member of the JVP Rabbinical Council, added: “I am shaken to the core and dumbfounded that, on the even of the 70th commemoration of the catastrophe that befell the Palestinians when the state of Israel was established, Israeli military forces are continuing to shoot unarmed men, women and children engaged in nonviolent protest. We cannot be silent. The killing and maiming of Palestinians seeking their human rights must stop immediately.” The JVP Rabbinical Council issued a statement condemning the killing of protesters in Gaza: “This is not what human beings do to one another. And we will not stand idly by as our neighbor’s blood is shed.”

Prior to today’s protest, at least 43 Palestinians had been killed in the past six weeks by the Israeli military for protesting along the militarized fence between Gaza and Israel, and over 7,000 were wounded. Amnesty International called the Israeli assault by military snipers of the Great March of Return in Gaza “murderous” and charged Israel with “deliberately inflicting life-changing injuries,” with soaring numbers of lower-limb amputations.

Tuesday marks the 70th anniversary of the Nakba (catastrophe) and the founding of the state of Israel, when close to a million Palestinians were forced from their homes. Most Palestinians in Gaza are refugees, forced to flee into Gaza during the Nakba. Demonstrations are expected to continue to Gaza and in Jerusalem. Since Israel unilaterally annexed the eastern half of Jerusalem in 1967, the international community has considered it to be occupied territory.
