American Palestinian Women’s Association: Standing with Our Jewish Sisters

Standing with Our Jewish Sisters Against Anti-Semitism, Bigotry and Hate

Like other Americans of conscience, we are alarmed by the recent rise of unfiltered offensive rhetoric against fellow Americans that is threatening our core American values and the safety of our children.

In the wake of the recent xenophobic wave that has been articulated and observed during and after the US presidential election, many of our Jewish sisters are legitimately anxious and worried about the recent rise in anti-Semitism. While Americans of Palestinian and Arab decent are Semites too, our community is concerned about the Jewish directed anti-Semitic rhetoric.

Our shared Semitic roots and values compel us to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our Jewish sisters to protect the dignity of our children and defend their right to live free of fear, anxiety, and stress. To that end, APWA denounces and rejects all forms and expressions of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, Afrophobia, xenophobia, homophobia, misogyny, racism, and bigotry.
