Criteria for Selection
To be considered and selected, a "Righteous Jew"
It is not important why a "Righteous Jew" has defended Palestinian rights or whether his or her actions were based on friendship, altruism, religious belief, humanitarianism, or simple human decency. Candidates may be considered posthumously.
- Consider himself or herself to be Jewish. He or she does not have to be religious. Non-practicing Jews and even atheists can be considered.
- Have demonstrated solidarity with Palestinians as human beings, deserving of being treated equally with all other people in the lands
between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, one country with equal
citizenship for all.
- Have faced disparagement, discrimination, or even death as a consequence of his or her standing up for the rights of Palestinians.
