Peace and justice: anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism

Peace and justice
Quaker and Jew Sue Beardon writes about anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism in The Friend

Quaker and Jew Sue Beardon, a member of our meeting, has written an opinion piece for Quaker magazine ‘The Friend’, published 9th September.

“I believe as Quakers we should not fall into the easy ‘pro’ and ‘anti’ positions. As Martin Drummond himself says: ‘We were never for you, in that tribal sense. We are for peace, and truth, and justice.’ We have to extend that same attitude to Palestinians, however much we empathise with their plight. Principled impartiality is the stance of EAPPI (Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel) and is very effective.”
