    Standing up for human rights is an admirable trait; any attempt to bully Niki Ashton by B’nai Brith or any other organization is contempable!

    Thanks for standing up for Palestinians who for 3 generations have daily experienced a violation of their human rights, have witnessed their land being expropriated, have been confined from external nautical contact and seen international law ignored.

    So glad, finally, to see a potential leader of the party getting past our dangerous and illegal support for Israeli exceptionalism. Go, Niki!

    It is absolutely outrageous that jingoistic, implicitly racist organizations like B’nai Brith are allowed to continue to spew their lies and propaganda for a foreign power as a “charity”.

    As a Jew who supports the struggles of those whose lands are occupied, indigenous people on Turtle Island as well as Palestinians, I appreciate your brave stand. Keep up the work for all oppressed peoples.
