Israel: You Cannot Silence Global Voices for Justice!


On Sunday, January 7, 2018, Israel published a list of organizations whose activists will be barred from entering the country because of their support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement in Palestine. The so-called BDS blacklist was released by the Israeli Strategic Affairs Ministry. Members of CODEPINK and 19 global organizations that support human rights in Palestine are on the blacklist. 

Included on the list is the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker organization honored with the 1947 Nobel Peace Prize for assisting and rescuing victims of the Nazis.  It is also one of the first US organizations to stand up against segregation in the United States. The six banned U.S. groups are:

■ American Friends Service Committee
■ American Muslims for Palestine
■ Jewish Voice for Peace
■ National Students for Justice in Palestine
■ US Campaign for Palestinian Rights

Join us in calling on influential US Senators Schumer and Cardin to denounce new Israeli ban on groups support the nonviolent BDS Campaign for Palestinian rights.

Senators Schumer and Cardin:

Israel has just banned 20 organization that support BDS. This is an outrageous attempt to silence global voices that work to stop the oppression and violations of international law against the people of Palestine.  

We call on you, Senators Schumer and Cardin, to say this is unacceptable from a government accepting funds from US taxpayers. Tell Israel to immediately lift the ban.

    This is ridiculous and un-American. Why are we letting Israel dictate this to us. Are we getting billions of dollars from them? It’s good that groups are pointing out the violations of basic human rights in Israel against the Palestinians. Last time I checked, the Palestinians aren’t responsible for the Holocaust.

    How much is America paying Israel for them to blacklist American citizens?

    You can’t silence truth. No muzzle or ban is strong enough to do that, none.

    American Jews supported BDS in So. Africa. We have a responsibility to do the same now. As an American Jewish woman, I ask you to condemn this ban.

    Hey Schumer! It’s not too late to stop being an asshole. I have no respect for you whatsoever, and I will never vote for you until you become a HUMANITARIAN and not a zionist.

    Dear Senators, The whole world is watching. The BDS movement is successful and growing because people everywhere are becoming more aware of Israel’s oppressive policies that violate basic human rights of the Palestinians. Will you please stand with us on the side of justice?
