Georgia police groups slam Jewish Voice for Peace’s antisemitic “Deadly Exchange” campaign

Yes, we at MJAC are dismayed at some of the counterproductive positions being taken by our local Jewish unelected leadership. What's worse though are the truly destructive groups that claim to be Jewish and might even have "Jewish" as part of their title.

Take for example, Jewish Voice for Peace, which is basically Jewish Voice for Palestinians. They work hard to discredit and demonize Israel.

Currently they're working hard to end cooperation between American and Israeli police forces and their cooperative training exchanges. Thanks to a lack of knowledge among most people, they believe JVP's lies, and some police departments have canceled training exercises. In Georgia, though, they see through the lies.

Two professional associations of police leaders and chief law enforcement officers in Georgia have condemned the virulently anti-Israel and undeniably antisemiticDeadly Exchange” campaign.

That campaign, led by ‘Jewish Voice for Peace’, falsely blames Israel and American Jewish organizations, including the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), for U.S. domestic police practices and problems in minority communities.

In numerous prior posts we’ve written about this vile “Deadly Exchange” initiative, which aims to exploit preexisting and unrelated domestic racial tensions to stoke hatred of Jews by blaming Jews, all in the service of building an anti-Israel coalition.

As we discussed, the campaign was launched several years ago by the anti-Jewish and anti-peace extremist organization Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP). It’s now being heavily promoted by many pro-BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) organizations based in the U.S.

Police departments across the country are coming under increasing pressure to end their relationships and exchange programs with Israel, but so far there’s been little if any push back.

Primarily that’s because JVP and its allies have been able to operate with a lot of “behind-the-scenes lobbying” and can work fast with “little public notice”.

Basically, they’ve been able to count on well-meaning people having little understanding of modern policing challenges. This makes it easier for JVP to promote “Deadly Exchange” as in the “best interests” of cities and to present it as consistent with progressive values and the larger progressive agenda.

Now all that could be about to change.

With two major professional police associations in Georgia coming out to denounce the campaign, other groups with expertise on homeland security and civil defense may follow suit. If that happens, JVP will no longer face an empty playing field when it comes to promoting its discriminatory and defamatory propaganda.

JVP and other anti-Semitic groups are constantly active and always finding new ways to demonize Israel and reinvent ancient anti-Semitic slurs. It's important to be aware. Have they infiltrated any of Michigan's police departments?
