We, Jews in Germany, have come together to make it known that we recognise the historical experiences of our ancestors and the debasement and hurt which are inflicted on people when they are systematically ostracized and disenfranchized. No person or people can behave like this towards another person or people.
Our group under the names Jüdische Stimme für gerechten Frieden in Nahost / Jewish Voice for a just peace in the Middle East / European Jews for a Just Peace Deutschland e. V. (Jüdische Stimme) was formed in 2003 in Berlin and became a recognised association in 2007.
The most important audience for our work is the German public and government. We expect the German government to use its economic and political weight to ensure justice and peace in the Middle East, for the good of all the people who live there.
In the context of the clearly increasing racism in Germany and its neighbours, including Islamophobia, Antisemitism and other forms of structural social and political discrimination and exclusion, the members and friends of the Jüdische Stimme are united: determined in resistance against all expressions of degradation and disdain.
