April 8, 2015--We are deeply concerned about the terrible conditions facing Palestinian refugees in Yarmouk refugee camp outside of Damascus, Syria. The camp was invaded by ISIS militants last week and the Syrian government has also been bombarding the area. We urge the international community to take action to enable safe passage for residents and for supplies into the camp.

As a Jewish organization committed to peace, equal rights, and humanitarian principles, we decry any person or organization whose goal is to perpetuate hatred, fear, and misinformation. David Horowitz’s tactics, and his role as what the Southern Poverty Law Center calls “the godfather of the anti-Muslim movement,” puts him squarely in that camp. His tactics are unethical, misleading, and damaging to a campus environment; he is not interested in a just or equitable campus climate, only in promoting himself.

JVP welcomes the framework nuclear agreement announced today between Iran and the P5+1. Despite attempts by some in the US and in Israel to disrupt the diplomatic process, we are pleased to see that the parties have agreed on the parameters for an agreement that would restrict Iran's nuclear program and begin the process of lifting specific sanctions. We hope that a final deal will be reached by the June deadline.

Palestine became a member of the International Criminal Court on April 1, giving the court jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute war crimes committed in the occupied territories. JVP recognizes the right of Palestinians to pursue legal, non-violent recourse in the international arena, which is especially relevant in light of the lack of a peace process and the repeated statements against Palestinian statehood by newly re-elected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
