Anti-Israel organizations blamed Israel and celebrated the Hamas atrocities committed against Jews:
October 8, 2023

IfNotNow (INN) accused Israel of every lie in the book, including genocide and “murdering Palestinians in the streets” [in other words, exactly what the Palestinian Arab terrorists due to Jews] and claimed that Israel provoked the “Palestinian militants’ actions” [INN’s term for Hamas murdering and raping innocent Jews and Jewish children]

Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) claimed that the source of “all this violence” [JVP’s term for Hamas’ atrocities against innocent Jews] is Israel’s “war on Palestinians” for 75 years [namely, Israel’s existence]. (INN and JVP’s statements are listed in Newsweek.)

Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapters across the U.S., including at American University, Rutgers, UC San Diego, the University of Minnesota and San Jose State University, all celebrated “the resistance.” (See Times of Israel article)

Violent anti-Israel groups Within Our Lifetime (which calls for “Globalizing the Intifada” terror wars against Jews), Samidoun (which is allied with terror group PFLP), Decolonize This Place, Al-Awda (which also has ties to terror groups PFLP, Hamas, PIJ, etc.) and others announced rallies on Sunday in Times Square and on Monday at the Israeli consulate in New York “to defend the heroic Palestinian resistance.” (TOI article)

We also received an alert from Canada that “PALESTINIAN RALLYS celebrating and glorifying the barbaric mass murder of over 700 Israelis and the numbers are climbing and the kidnapping of Israeli babies, young children their mothers and the elderly, are going on at Nathan Philips Square, as well all over Toronto and throughout Canada. Our Jewish leaders have appealed to the Police and the Liberal government to stop these Palestinian rallys glorifying the mass murder and kidnapping of innocent Israeli civilians, but as usual it has fallen on deaf ears.” There will be A SOLIDARITY RALLY FOR ISRAEL on Monday at 7pm at Mel LASTMAN SQUARE in Toronto, Canada.”
