JDL – NY Counters JVP Boycott of Israel Birthright Gala

Posted: December 7, 2017 at 11:00 am   /   by

December 3, 2017 – 33 E 33rd St. – NYC. 12:30 PM.  JDL – NY was there, countering the JVP Boycott of the Israel Birthright Gala. Even though the gala was postponed, the RETURN the Birthright protest was still on.

“Birthright was criticized by liberal Jewish groups last month after it announced that it would no longer bring groups to meet Arab-Israelis, a move the organization claimed was only temporary.”

“So, JVP has pledged to refrain from the sponsored trips, saying more than 1,000 people have already signed.” [Forward]

 Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) want the BirthRight trip to include “palestine” and Gaza, so they can see the oppressed “palestinians.”

They allege the trip is racist. They allege the trip doesn’t show all sides of Israel. They allege that Birth-Right is Birth-WRONG.

This is preposterous and anti-Semitic. JVP does NOT speak for U.S. Jews!

Time to get LOUD! Time to STAND WITH ISRAEL!” The New Jewish Defence League NY

Willful ignorance: arrogant AND obscene.
