Yachad speaks out: We must differentiate between criticism of Israel, including harsh ones, and antisemitism.

JVL Introduction

Many readers may have their differences with Yachad (“Together for Israel. Together for peace.”)

But all will surely welcome its new short video, taking a firm stand on the need to differentiate antisemitism from criticism of Israel and its occupation, and expressing a strong pro-Palestinian view:

“Suggesting that everyone who is an antizionist is antisemitic or that the tools of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions are antisemitic has got absolutely nothing to do with the genuine fight against antisemitism. It’s all about shutting down legitimate debate about Israel’s policy of occupation”

    Well done Yachad for a bold and clear statement that is a credit for those who strive for justice in the fight against racism .
