We seek to inform the community about, and take action against Israel's oppression of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories of the West Bank of the Jordan River, the siege of the Gaza Strip, and the discrimination against its Arab citizens within Israel.
We urge an immediate end to Israel's military occupation of Palestine and Gaza, and cessation of demolition and/or occupation of homes and other buildings in Arab East Jerusalem.
We demand an end to Congress annual grant to Israel of several billion dollars. We would eliminate any financial support from the U.S. to Israel for military purposes, and end the sale or provision of arms to or through Israel.
We support a ban on any further colonization in the West Bank.
We support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement initiated by Palestinians as a nonviolent means of calling the world's attention to their plight.
We reject charges of anti-Semitism designed to silence criticism of actions and policies of Israel. It is not anti-Semitic to criticize Israel's conduct, although Israel's insistence on describing itself as the "state of the Jews" invites confusion between Jewish responsibility and Israeli responsibility for Israel's deeds.
