Dear Editor,

Congratulations to Rep. Cynthia McKinney on her recent electoral victory! We are proud to offer collective Jewish support for her office and the courageous and principled public stand she continues to take by supporting a sustainable end to the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Along with many American Jews, Jews Against the Occupation does not support the Israeli military occupation of Palestine. We maintain that the wellbeing of Jews everywhere is not secured as long as the Palestinian people remain subjugated. A lasting peace is achieved through mutual respect and recognition of all peoples’ inherent right to self-determination.

Criticism of Israel does not equal antisemitism. We applaud the people of metropolitan Atlanta for acknowledging this fact and reinstating a legislator of conscience.

Sincerely,
Jews Against the Occupation
