Jeremy Burton, CEO of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston, pointed out that the project has even been disavowed by the Palestinian BDS National Committee “because it conflicts with their self-proclaimed commitment to anti-racism and non-violence.”
He added that the project has been embraced by an E.U. and U.S.-designated terrorist organization, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
“The editors of the Wellesley News would do well to reconsider their decision to stand side by side with the PFLP,” Burton told JNS. “They would be further advised to consider the systemic harm, racism and violence that they are endorsing, specifically the call for the dismantlement of the Jewish community in greater Boston.”
