Independent Jewish Voices (Canada) Joins Campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Against Israel

August 23, 2010

On 17 June 2010 Independent Jewish Voices (Canada) voted to join the growing international campaign in support of the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel, at its first Annual General Meeting this past weekend.

This group joins a growing number of faith-based responses to the global BDS call.

Correction! Sid Shniad of Vancouver, BC, Spokesperson for IJV tells us:

1) We endorsed BDS in June 2009.

2) Although ours is a Jewish organization, it is not accurate to describe it as “faith-based.” Our membership is comprised of Jews, religious and non, who subscribe to the view that a just resolution to the conflict in Israel and Palestine should be resolved through the application of international law and respect for the human rights of all parties.

Thanks for writing in with the correction, Sid!
