JVP: "We can think of no better way to celebrate Passover than to stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people"

When Israel is under attack, what does "Jewish" Voice for Peace do?
They call a rally in solidarity with the Palestinians.

JVP's call to action contains this egregious lie  "The massive protests in cities across Gaza..."  The protests were not held in cities across Gaza. Rather, Hamas, the terror organization that governs Gaza bused 30,000 locals to the border with Israel. A tent city was created, with Hamas committing to feeding the protesters for 6 weeks. The first day was marked with violent rioting, and multiple attempts to infiltrate cross the border into Israel.

JVP reports, with more than a hint of disappointment that Israel suffered "zero casualties".  The Palestinian dead?  JVP neglects some important information.

At least 10 of those killed were active members of the Hamas terror group.
The Emergency Protest was cosponsored by the  "Protest first -ask questions later" team at the Palestine Action Network, and in the time-honored tradition of Israel-haters, was scheduled for a day when Jews throughout the area would be preparing for their Pesach seder.
