IfNotNow Stands With Queer Jews and Against The Occupation

This is such a beautiful and thoughtful statement. There is a huge difference between feeling discomfort and being attacked, between confronting those who participate in oppression — and committing acts of hatred and bigotry. Defense of Israel’s inhumane policies has always required a deliberate blurring of those lines, doing we Jews, and especially Palestinians, no favors. This statement underscores how love — of Jews, of Palestinians, of queers of all kinds — fuels courageous actions like these. Thank you.
