WASHINGTON - Jewish Voice for Peace mourns the lives lost in violent attacks, both Palestinian and Israeli, in the last days and weeks.
It is very important that voices like that of the JVP are heard in progressive circles. The battle for Peace is waged by both sides together. Too many progressives forget to stand up for Jewish voices of fellowship and peace.
It is much harder for criticisms of Israeli hard liner and settler behavior to be heard when it is only the opposing side voicing them. When Jews speak about criticisms of the Israeli government's policies (like we progressives do about the US government) their words have resonance.
Thank you brothers and sisters in Peace.
Peace is again a true word (in the Middle East) like it was when it was said in the Vietnam War era.
Thank you for sharing. Gush Shalom also took action.
