Blaming Israel for its intake of Ukrainian Jews as part of its “ethnic cleansing”, Jewish Voice for Peace, took to Twitter to slam the country for “settling” Jewish Ukrainian.
In baseless claims against Israel, far-left Jewish group Jewish Voice for Peace wrote a series of Tweets, saying “The Israeli government is settling Jewish Ukrainian refugees on land it illegally occupies and prevents seven million Palestinian refugees from returning to. Pitting refugees against each other is not justice.”
Instead of simply being refugees and finding a new life in Israel, Jewish Voice for Peace said that the Jewish Ukrainians will become settlers “with the privileges given to the dominant demographic in a settler-colonial apartheid state.” Rather than allowing refugees into the country out of kindness, Israel is bringing them in “to cement a Jewish demographic majority in Palestine,” the group claimed.
The NGO also criticized the Jewish state for not being as eager to accept non-Jewish Ukrainians, limiting the refugees they accept and charging a ” ~$3,000 fee to Israelis wanting to host them.”
The BDS organization was also criticized for sharing a post that characterized Jewish Ukrainian refugees as an “incoming wave of Zionist colonization.” It removed the retweet not long after.
