JVP Launches Cam­paign

The Jewish Voice - - JEWISH FEATURES -

JVP, ac­tive on cam­puses across the United States, de­scribes it­self as a group that “op­poses anti-Jewish, anti-Mus­lim, and anti-Arab big­otry and op­pres­sion.”

It has been ac­tive in en­cour­ag­ing com­mer­cial, aca­demic and cul­tural boy­cotts of Is­rael through the Boy­cott, Divest­ment and Sanc­tions (BDS) move­ment.

The Anti-Defama­tion League, a US-based NGO ded­i­cated to fight­ing anti-Semitism, claims that “JVP uses its Jewish iden­tity to shield the anti-Is­rael move­ment from al­le­ga­tions of anti-Semitism and to pro­vide the move­ment with a ve­neer of le­git­i­macy.”
