Memo to IfNotNow

Dear IfNotNowOrg:

If you cannot take a stance on Zionism or the question of Jewish statehood, you cannot take one on the "Palestinians freedom and dignity...[and the] depriving them of civil, political and economic rights".

Zionists demand equality and right to self-liberation.

Arabs-called-Palestinians rejected partition plans in 1937 and 1947 while violently seeking the prevention of any Jewish political entity in any territory the international community guaranteed would be reconstituted as the Jewish national home based on the Jewish people's historic connection with same.

They continued that rejectionist position through the first 19 years of Jewish statehood and continued to do so as expressed in the Covenant of the PLO and that of the Hamas, at the September 1967 Khartoum Conference until the Oslo Accords.

These Accords went unfulfilled despite Israeli physical concessions. A further disengagement still did not satisfy Arab demands and they continue, until this day, to refuse to engage in meaningful negotiations even after a 10-month period of a construction moratorium.

A one-sided diplomatic game while terror and incitement continues is unacceptable and Jewish support for such delegitimizes any interference by groups such as IfNotNow.
