Jews for Peace

A tried and tested ruse; any criticism of Israel is equated with anti-semitism. However, that is not the only reason why, outside Israel, organisations such as 'Jewish Voice for Peace', 'Independent Jewish Voices', 'Jews against the Occupation', American Jews for a Just Peace, and many more, and organisations in Israel, such as those being set up by the IDF "Refuseniks", 'The Israeli Committee against House Demolitions', and 'Gush Shalom', are crucial. They are also indispensible if there is to be that kind of peace where both Jews and Palestinians can live together peacefully. There is a chance for dialogue, a chance for justice and the chance for that kind of solution that can accomodate most Israelis, while redressing many of the wrongs that the Palestinians have had to endure since 1948 in particular. It is, however, not a solution that can accomodate the zany Zionists, however. Moreover, it is very important that there are Jews both inside and outside of Israel who recognise this. Especially, when other, non-Jewish, opponents of zionism are being branded as anti-semitic.
