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.

If we would all act as if others are looking over our shoulder, then we would not allow the total injustice that IS the daily struggle of Palestinians, and increasingly the growing number of poor and weak among the Jews of Israel and elsewhere!

Namaste

we stand with you

Thanks for doing this. I’m sending special shout out to Penny R, with big

People aren’t born with hate in their hearts. This is something people learn. I believe hate develops when people live in a state of fear and ignorance. The answer really can be simple: Replace the fear with love and the ignorance with knowledge.

 

When fear is used as a political weapon, it becomes essential for groups such as JfJfP (UK) and JVP to counter it and its accompanying lies. JfJfP is proud to be part of JVP’s campaign against the demonisation of Arabs and Muslims fed into public discourse since 9/11 and which Barack Obama’s opponents are seeking to use against him in the US presidential election. Our common humanity defines us before differences of ethnicity, nationality or faith. Pretending otherwise is the mantra of conflict junkies.

Lorri and Dan E say no to anti-Muslim and anti-Arab bigotry.

The current anti-Arab, anti-Muslim idiocy is the mirror image of
anti-Semitism — and it comes from some of the same people. Extremists don’t
speak for everybody. I am proudly Jewish. I have personal, physical
experience of anti-Semitism, and it is vile to treat other people with that
kind of prejudice. It has to stop.

Another Jew opposing bigotry against Muslims

Dear We Stand With You,

Here is my photo. You have my support. Jews and Arabs are cousins.
Anti-Arab, anti-Muslim agitation is antisemitic as well. As Jews, we
must not let the right wing demonize whole peoples or religions.

Thank you for your work,

Howard Winant
