JVP Hosting Protest Event With Terrorist Affiliates In Solidarity With Terrorists
Jewish Voice for Peace have let their followers know that they are taking a break from social media:
Note how they make it sound like they feel this break is even more necessary in light of the recent Congregation Beth Israel synagogue hostage situation, even though they admit “the pause was planned previously.”
And why may this pause have already been planned?
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact they are co-organizing the following protest event in a few days (on Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath, to be exact):
The main organizer of this event is the PFLP-affiliated and Israeli-designated terror group Samidoun. Due to Samidoun’s terror connection, Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Paypal, Donorbox and Plaid won’t allow it to raise funds using their services.
Samidoun’s leader Khaled Barakat is a senior PFLP operative who was expelled from Germany in 2019. Just last month, the University of British Columbia in Canada cancelled an event on campus which featured him. He is married to fellow Israel-hater Charlotte Kates.
As for Ahmad Sa’adat – the man they are protesting on behalf of – he was the PFLP’s Secretary-General sentenced to thirty years in prison for heading an “illegal terrorist organization,” as well as for his involvement in planning many of the group’s attacks including the assassination of Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze’evi.
Other sponsors of the events include:
- The Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM), an organization for youth with branches around the US which has shown repeated support for terrorists from Hamas, the PIJ and other organizations
- Within Our Lifetime (WOL), the NY chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), founded by Nerdeen Kiswani who calls for murdering Jews
So while JVP sheds crocodile tears over antisemitism and terror attacks against Jews, they are in bed with those responsible for antisemitism and terror attacks.
