Built upon a strong tradition of supporting civil liberties for all people everywhere. the Jewish Voice for Peace is inspired by the Jewish tradition to work together for peace, social justice, equality, human rights, comradeship and solidarity across ethnic and national lines.
They take a very strong stand against the Israeli occupation and illegal settlements of the West Bank, and East Jerusalem. They also support ending the siege of the Gaza Strip. They seek a just solution for Palestinian refugees including the right of return of all Palestinian refugees and their descendants with total and equal rights wherever they may settle with an end to violence against civilians and peace and justice for all peoples of the Middle East.
Non-Jews can work very closely with the Jewish Voice for Peace to guarantee full humane and a just solution to the Palestinian crisis and all Palestinian be they Israeli Arabs, the inhabitants in West Bank and Gaza. All residents of the Levant (Israel and Palestine) be they Muslim, Jew, Christian, Druze, Samaritan, Baha’i` or secular should be cherished and treated with respect.
I write this letter because it is inspirational to know there are people of tremendous moral courage in this world. This gives all of us hope.
