It’s way worse than “gross” though:
Canceling participation at a DC statehood rally because they would have to share the stage with (liberal) Jewish groups.

They also are clueless about these Jewish groups:
JCPA spent years pushing for the Middle East Partnership for Peace Act, which provides $250 million to expand I-P peacebuilding and coexistence efforts.
RAC and NCJW regularly condemn IDF and settler violence, and support Palestinian statehood.
But go off, guys. https://t.co/Efht3KY1EU

National Council of Jewish Women funds organizations that connect Palestinian women with legal aid, social services, and help them grow grassroots political power.
