A new player has arrived to spread antisemitism and anti-Israel hatred. It is called the Jerusalem Declaration on Antisemitism (JDA) - a newly proposed definition of antisemitism. The goal of this petition is simple; to dismantle the internationally accepted definition of antisemitism put forth by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of antisemitism (IHRA) and protect avid antisemites from being accused of discriminating against Jews. JDA claims that anti-Zionism is not necessarily antisemitism, which is incredibly problematic. We are calling on all institutions and governments to DENY the JDA petition to form a new definition of antisemitism. 

JDA has been put forth by a group of anti-Israel intellectuals in an attempt to undermine the IHRA definition of antisemitism which has been widely accepted. The JDA petition tries to disguise itself as a call to end antisemitism. In reality, all it does is blur the lines of what modern antisemitism looks like to allow those devoted to the destruction of Israel and hatred of Jews. The JDA would allow antisemites to continue to operate with little to no consequences. This petition is a step backward from the progress that we have made in the fight against antisemitism. And we MUST stop it! 

Tell institutions and governments: REJECT JDA! 

JDA tires to create ambiguity over what constitutes antisemitism, making it easier for antisemites to discriminate against Jews. The IHRA definition is so widely accepted because various governments and institutions know that it represents the live experience of Jews. JDA is just another phony attempt to spread bigotry against Jews and the Jewish state. 

A main sponsor of JDA is a prolific anti-Semite himself. Richard Falk has been officially denounced by the United Kingdom on THREE separate occasions for antisemitism. He has praised the protocols of the Elders of Zion and antisemitic cartoons and even described Jews as Nazis. He does not care about the Jewish people or their struggle with discrimination. By promoting this definition, he is aiming to advance his anti-Israel and antisemitic agenda. 

Help put a stop to antisemitism: SIGN THE PETITION NOW!

Don’t let this petition move forward anymore. It will only be used to gaslight Jews and undermine the IHRA definition while protecting antisemites and those who wish to delegitimize Israel. SIGN THE PETITION TODAY
