ISRAELI WAR CRIMINALS EXPOSED: "Jewish Voice for Peace-Chicago members interrupt former Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren to say “shame on you” at Jewish United Fund celebration of Israeli war crimes"
CHICAGO—(ENEWSPF)—August 22, 2014. On Thursday, August 21 at 7 p.m. at the Chicago Hilton & Towers Grand Ballroom, 720 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, members of Jewish Voice for Peace-Chicago (JVP) will disrupt the Jewish United Fund’s (JUF) celebration of Israeli war crimes perpetrated during Israel’s recent assault on Gaza. JVP members will repeatedly interrupt the featured speakers throughout the event, denying injustice an uncontested platform in our community. As Jews we direct shame and rebuke toward the event’s organizers and the featured panelists, who include former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren and an Israeli soldier who has served in Gaza. Jewish Voice for Peace – Chicago, is the local chapter of large and growing grassroots network of Jews organizing in solidarity with Palestinians against the injustice perpetrated by the Israeli government. Participants will include both American Jews and Israelis.
