Definitions for "Alliance of Concerned Jewish Canadians"
The Alliance of Concerned Jewish Canadians (ACJC), (previously referred to as the Alliance of Canadian Jews (ACJ)) is a coalition of Canadian Jews who are critical of the policies of the Israeli government, particularly toward the Palestinians. It claimed 114 members as of June 2006. The ACJC argues that Israel has wrongly "claim[ed] to speak in the name of Jewish people around the world," and that "those of us who have a different vision" should "come forward publicly to present our views to the Canadian Jewish community and to the people of Canada." It seeks to represent "Jewish anti-occupation forces" in Canada.
