(July 5, 2022 / JNS) The left-wing activist group Jewish Voice for Peace published a July 4 post on Facebook urging its followers to “remember parallels between the colonization of Turtle Island (‘North America’) and Palestine,” including “land theft,” “ethnic cleansing” and “violent repression of resistance.”
The post also claimed that “if you support Palestinians’ right to return, […] you should also support Indigenous people’s demand for #LandBack.”
Jewish Voice for Peace supports the BDS movement against Israel and has previously posted critical material about the Jewish state.
The organization came under fire in 2020 for a since-deleted tweet that appeared to glorify the First Intifada.
The Dec. 8 tweet featured a poster from a member stating “where there is oppression, may there thrive resistance” and “L’Chaim Intifada.”
