About Us

New Jewish Resistance aspires to be a movement uniting all Jews who believe in fighting Jew-hatred in the diaspora and making common cause with the opppressed, not rallying around an illegitimate settler state. This website serves as a forum to launch that movement. It is published by the CounterVortex Family of Websites, a project initiated by veteran journalist Bill Weinberg.
