Jewish Voice for Peace and the New Blood Libel
27 May 2008
Jewish Voice for Peace and the New Blood Libel
They often say they're not anti-Zionist, but most times it's hard to tell.

Jewish Voice for Peace needs a new motto, something like "We’re not really anti-Zionist, but we always act that way." Their latest screed about the Palestinian Nakba reads like a textbook produced by the Palestinian Authority, full of allegations designed to incite hatred and prevent peace. It levels charges of atrocities allegedly committed against Arab civilians by the Jews of 1948 Palestine, who had the temerity to try to defend themselves not only against 5 invading Arab armies, but also against local villages that had long been launching attacks against Jewish civilians and besieging Jewish Jerusalem.

Their "fact sheet" accuses Israel of war crimes, in blood-curdling detail that brings to mind accounts of the horrors of the Holocaust. This of course is not by accident...

More. By accepting a "narrative" that includes a boat-load of fabrications and which was crafted for the purpose of Israel's destruction, JVP furthers that purpose, not peace.
