Jewish Voice for "Peace" (Anarchy)
Jewish Voice for Peace is a collection of left-wing, pro-Palestinian anarchists, who use disruption to silence those who support Israel. At the same time, they complain that they themselves are silenced, usually through their silly blog, Muzzle Watch. Hat tip to Pro-Israel Bay Bloggers and Engaging Zion for this expose.
JVP is the same collection of clowns who disrupted Bibi Netanyahu's speech at New Orleans in November 2010. They call this tactic, "direct action". In addition, three of them cast their shadow at UC Irvine last year sponsored by Students for Justice in Palestine. At that event, in which I was present, Israeli student, activist, and self-proclaimed anarchist Matan Cohen stated that anything pro-Israel was "useless discourse" and that students on campus who were pro-Zionist should not "be able to feel comfortable on campus". When I expressed my indignation that Cohen would come to our country and lecture us on who had or didn't have the right to speak, his hysterical cohort, Rachel Roberts, accused me of trying to take away Cohen's right to speak because he wasn't an American.
The sub-title of that blog should read, "Free speech for me but not for thee."
