Assalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],
When one talks against Israel and Zionist crimes, they're bound to be faced with the Anti-Semitic accusation. I'd like to be a little smart. I'm not gonna say anything. I'm just gonna quote verbatim. I'll quote Jews themselves and what they say against the atrocities of the Israeli government.
Here is a statement in solidarity with the Palestinian people of Gaza submitted on 08/06/2014 in JEWISH VOICE FOR PEACE jewishvoiceforpeace.org :
As Palestinian, indigenous, women of color, anti-racist, and Jewish feminists involved in a range of social justice struggles, we strongly condemn the current massacre of the Palestinians of Gaza and affirm our support for and commitment to the growing international movement for a free Palestine and for racial justice, equality, and freedom for all.
As many of us know from time spent in Palestine and in other movements for justice, the connections between the movement for a free Palestine and anti- colonial struggles for self-determination throughout the world are inextricable.
The current Israeli attacks on Gaza have resulted in more than 1900 Palestinian deaths, including over 450 children; the displacement of up to 25% of the population; and the destruction of crucial infrastructure such as sanitation, hospitals, and schools. We condemn and are horrified by the current acts of Israeli brutality, while also recognizing the deeply rooted and ongoing violence that Palestinians are forced to endure on a daily basis- for example, living in ghetto-like conditions in Gaza, systematically having land confiscated, being deprived of their livelihoods, collective punishment, gender and racial violence, and ongoing expulsion and displacement from the Nakba until today.
An extensive prison system bolsters the occupation and suppresses
resistance. Over 5,000 Palestinians are locked inside Israeli prisons; more than 200 are children. There is ongoing criminalization of their political activity.
We believe in the critical importance, now more than ever, of the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions call for Israel to
1) End its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantle the Wall;
2) Recognize the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality;
and 3) Respect, protect and promote the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194. The purpose of the BDS campaigns is to pressure Israeli state-sponsored institutions to adhere to international law, basic human rights, and democratic principles as a condition for just and equitable social relations.
We stand with the Palestinian community and with activists all over the world in condemning the flagrant injustices of the current Israeli massacre against the Palestinians of Gaza; the land, air, and sea blockade of Gaza; and the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
We call for an end to US military aid, at more than 3 billion a year, for the Israeli state and its occupation.
We call upon all people of conscience to stand with Palestine and to join the worldwide actions in which communities and civil society are stepping up in critical ways. We recognize that all our struggles for social, racial, gender, and economic justice and for self-determination are deeply interconnected and can only gain strength and power from one another. As Audre Lorde taught us, “When we can arm ourselves with the strength and vision from all our diverse communities then we will in truth all be free at last.”

Now don't come and accuse me of telling lies about Israel. the above statement is written by Jews and posted in a Jewish website. so nobody can say the author of the above statement is Anti-Semitic.

Comments were initially open, but Pro-Israeli-terrorism were extremely frustrated and disturbed by my artwork and pointlessly attempted to ruin my page with hostile and aggressive comments. therefore disabling comments was a necessity to keep the page clean from trash.
If I'm right, it's from the God almighty. if I'm wrong, it's from myself.
