JVP values: strengthening antisemitism

Jewish Voice for Peace claims: If you want to act on your values and not just talk about them, Jewish Voice for Peace is for you.

Is strengthening  antisemitism one of  your values?  Apparently it is for JVP, who proudly proclaim in the same handout that they seek to “Strengthen the BDS movement”

JVP Values: Promoting anti-Semitic movements
Really, JVP?  These are your values?

The BDS movement seeks the end of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people. It  seeks to deprive the Jewish people of self determination in their ancient homeland, and as such is an anti-Semitic movement. If you promote and strengthen a movement that believes that all people have the right to self determination except the Jewish people, you are promoting and strengthening antisemitism.

Read  Alan Dershowitz's Ten reasons why the BDS movement is immoral and hinders peace, who writes

The BDS movement is immoral because it promotes false views regarding the nation state of the Jewish people, exaggerates its flaws and thereby promotes a new variation on the world's oldest prejudice, namely anti-Semitism. It is not surprising therefore that the BDS movement is featured on neo-Nazi, Holocaust denial and other overtly anti-Semitic websites and is promoted by some of the world's most notorious haters such as David Duke.
