Standing Together Vienna is a Jewish-Arab alliance for peace in the Middle East.

 

We are an initiative with members from different backgrounds that promotes dialogue and co-existence as a means of achieving a just peace in the Middle East.

 

We believe that only through dialogue we shall be able to lower the walls of alienation and promote true recognition and reconciliation necessary for an agreed solution and for the establishment of a just society in Israel-Palestine

We reject all forms of violence and advocate for demilitarization in the region.

We believe in co-existence, recognizing the right of all people in Israel-Palestine to live there. We uphold the collective rights of Palestinians and Jewish Israelis, in any state structure, and are committed to fostering co-existence among Jewish and Arab minorities in the diaspora.

We adamantly oppose antisemitism (as defined by the Jerusalem Declaration of Antisemitism), Islamophobia, xenophobia, and any form of racism against Palestinians, Arabs, or Muslims. We also reject the dehumanization and demonization of any community.

Our commitment lies in upholding human rights and international law.

We renounce nationalism, ethno-nationalism, fundamentalism, religious fundamentalism (particularly when combined with ethno-nationalism), and all patriarchal, homophobic, and racist ideologies.
