I understand AFSC's support of BDS. However Quakers are super interested in the issue of forced conscription and the right of conscientious objection. A super logical alliance would be with orthodox Jews who do not wish to serve in the IDF on religious grounds.

Does AFSC work with this group much? If not, why not? Might be because of divergent views on LGBTQ but then no one says alliances imply 100% agreement on all issues.

Perhaps AFSC has approached True Torah Jews and been rebuffed? I suppose I can get in touch with them myself and ask if they'd like to work with AFSC in principle, same as I'll approach the Gulen folks with that question.

I'll be clear I'm not with AFSC at this time, but do have a resume.
