Jewish Voice for Peace Condemns Im Tirtzu Video

December 15, 2015 – The video released by the Israeli organization Im Tirtzu on December 14, 2015 is a disgraceful and dangerous act of incitement against Israeli human rights activists. The video accuses individual Israelis working for human rights organizations of being ‘planted” by foreign governments.

This video is just the latest, and perhaps most egregious, example of the climate of hate and violence directed at anyone who stands up for the rights of Palestinians. Palestinian citizens of Israel have long lived with threats and fear of arrest for expressing their political views.

We stand in solidarity with all people working for human rights and against the increasing atmosphere of incitement against them in Israel.
