News and views on Israel, Zionism and the war on terrorism.

October 03, 2002

Another Adam Shapiro

The Jerusalem Post reported that a Jew is representing Barghouti at trial, one Shamai Leibowitz, grandson of Yeshayahu Liebowitz, the leftist who coined the phrase "Judeo-Nazis." It runs in the family, apparently.

But Shamai is also giving the "closing lecture" at the University of Michigan Israel divestment conference (listed under "speakers" on the left of the screen), along with Ilan Pappe, of course.

The conference supports:

a. the full decolonization of all Palestinian land, including settlements, which are illegal under international law;
b. the end of the Israeli occupation of the Gaza Strip and West Bank, including East Jerusalem and all Arab lands;
c. the recognition and implementation of the right of return and repatriation for all Palestinian refugees to their original homes and properties; and
d. an end to the Israeli system of Apartheid and discrimination against the indigenous Palestinian population.

...
condemns the racism and discrimination inherent in Zionism underlying the policies and laws of the state of Israel

and says that

As a solidarity movement, it is not our place to dictate the strategies or tactics adopted by the Palestinian people in their struggle for liberation.

i.e., terrorism is okay by them.
