MISSION

WoMen Fight AntiSemitism welcomes all genders and races into our united front to fight for equality and against AntiSemitism. We draw inspiration from Bella Abzug, founder of the National Women’s Political Caucus, and Betty Friedan who unearthed that American women were being systematically tranquilized not liberated.

WoMen Fight AntiSemitism is pursuing New York State adopting an official definition and framework of Antisemitism. Part of our team is pursuing South Carolina adopting the official definition and framework of Antisemitism.

The Coalition of Muslim and Jewish Women is an initiative between AMWEC, founded by Anila Ali and WMFA whose mission is for Muslim and Jewish women to support and empower each other in the United States and abroad, and to provide a model of inter-faith sisterhood that inspires a new world culture of understanding, security and trust.

WMFA stands firmly against the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) of Israel based on our belief that a true and lasting peace will be through cooperative efforts toward that end between the Palestinians and the Israelis. We support self-determination for both Jews and Palestinians via a two-state solution. We support candidates and representatives who condemn the BDS movement, such as Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, who recently stated apologized for the Canadian government's failure in 1939 to admit a ship carrying 907 German Jews fleeing Nazi persecution: “Anti-Semitism is far too present. Jewish students still feel unwelcome and uncomfortable on some of our colleges and university campuses because of BDS-related intimidation.”

“And out of our entire community of nations, it is Israel whose right to exist is most widely and wrongly questioned.”

“While decades have passed since we turned our backs on Jewish refugees, time has by no means absolved Canada of its guilt or lessened the weight or our shame,” Trudeau said.

“Trudeau also personally condemned the adoption of a pro-BDS motion at Montreal's McGill University, his alma mater, in 2015, a few months before he was elected prime minister, saying the movement ‘has no place on Canadian campuses’.”

Trudeau called on all Canadians to stand up against those “xenophobic and anti-Semitic attitudes.”

When recently asked to reverse his stance, Trudeau doubled down: “I will continue to condemn the BDS movement.”

WMFA supports Women Wage Peace, an interfaith women’s coalition who tirelessly fearlessly work toward a diplomatic solution and gender parity in the Israeli Knesset (government). WMFA believes that the path toward more peace and security for the world, women should be seated in equal parity with men in government.
