Taking a Stand
I often wondered how otherwise reasonable people in the US could believe in human equality and civil rights in our country, while at the same time opposing equality in Israel. Granted, ADL is much preferable to JDL, but the mindless support for Israeli exceptionalism by the former in some ways emboldens the latter. In this article, Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights‘ Laith Marouf examines the movement for academic boycott against Israeli Apartheid in North America and the UK. Encountering the usual threats, harassment, lawsuits and violence by the anti-democratic Zionist network, Marouf looks at how some students and faculty have overcome easily intimidated university administrations in taking a stand against racial discrimination.
