Anti-Semitic EU Jews take stand against Israel....

Thousands of European Jews, including a number of EU parliament members, have signed a petition warning against systematic support for Israeli policies.

The petition, which was slated to be delivered to the European Parliament on Sunday, is signed by more than 3,000 European Jews, including renown French philosophers Bernard-Henri Levy and Alain Finkielkraut.

Daniel Cohn-Bendit, a Greens leader in the European Parliament, was also among the signatories of the petition, the Associated Press reported.

Supporters of the group, dubbed Jcall, take issue with Israel's domestic and foreign policies, most notably the regime's settlement project on occupied Palestinian land in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

"These policies are morally and politically wrong and feed the unacceptable delegitimization process that Israel currently faces abroad," reads the petition.

It adds that Israel faces a threat in the "occupation and the continuing pursuit of settlements in the West Bank and in the Arab districts of East Jerusalem."

Drawing much of their inspiration from J Street, a liberal Jewish lobbying group in the Unite States, Jcall concludes that "systematic support of Israeli government policy is dangerous and does not serve the true interests of" Israel.

Jcall plans hold a press conference at the European Parliament in Brussels on Monday.
