In recent weeks, over 28 million copies of the virulently anti-Islam movie Obsession have been distributed to people across the country–including every pastor and rabbi in America; the words “Muslim” and “Arab” have become synonymous with “Terrorist”; and now many openly state that being a Muslim-American or Arab-American disqualifies one from holding elected office in this country.

A strong democracy requires a majority that stands up for the minority, refusing to remain silent when others fuel the fires of division and hatred. We are appalled by the recent escalation of demonizing attacks against Arabs and Muslims. These are attacks on people we are proud to call our neighbors, colleagues, loved ones and fellow citizens. As Jews and other people of faith, we know too well the price when others remain silent. To our Arab and Muslim friends, we say we stand with you. Click here for more..

As people committed to a just peace between Israelis and Palestinians, just as we condemn Muslim extremists who demonize Jews or Christians, we also reject efforts by Christian and Jewish right-wing extremists to stigmatize all Arabs and Muslims in an effort to build support for unfair policies in the Middle East. It is in our interest as Jews, as Americans and as human beings to end Israel’s unlawful occupation of the Palestinians, and to fully recognize each other’s humanity, regardless of religion, skin color or ethnicity. Close box…

We refuse to be enemies.

my photo

My name is Brian Brotman. My photo is attached.

Here’s my blurb:

Judaism simply does not permit racism or any kind of oppression. We have a long proud  and sacred history of standing in solidarity oppressed peoples. To turn away from that now is to spit on the graves of our ancestors.

 
I am so glad to be sharing this land with you, my Arab cousins.

I am so glad to be sharing this land with you, my Arab cousins. My
life is richer because you are in it. I do not accept scapegoating you.

The photo is from the innauguration of the Canadian Jewish anti-
occupation group, Independent Jewish Voices. I am speaking there on
behalf of my US Jewish anti-occupation group, Jewish Voice for Peace.
