Despite its name, Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) isn’t Jewish or for peace. It’s a radical group that provides cover to the anti-Israel movement, particularly on campuses, by legitimizing and mainstreaming its assault on Jewish identity.

As we’ve noted in prior posts, JVP usurps various Jewish celebrations, religious holidays, and commemorative life-cycle...

We wrote recently how BDS is a settler-colonial ideology, in that it invades, conquers, and subjugates other movements to advance anti-Israel actvism.

There are few instances where this is more apparent than Dream Defenders, one of the key groups in the Black Lives Matter movement.

A war has been declared on Israel on campus by faculty and students supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.
