ANTISEMITIC EXPRESSION:DELEGITIMIZATION10/24/17 – A letter to the editor published in the student newspaper written by SJP delegitimized Israel, stating, “The language used in pro-Palestinian discourse is anti-colonial and anti-imperialist in nature – the ‘Israeli-Palestine’ conflict, is not a conflict, but rather apartheid. We call it how it is – it’s a black and white issue that does not have room for normalization…[The] U.N definition of apartheid includes murder, displacement, torture, and persecution on ethnic or racial grounds, all of which Palestinians experience in the West Bank, Gaza, and Israeli Occupied Palestine…While colonialist narratives claim that this is a security measure, which implies that all Palestinians are inherently violent and a security threat to Israel (an ahistorical and orientalist claim) the Apartheid Wall serves no purpose other than to stratify Palestinian people and land – it does not act as a security measure. Israel, a settler-colonial entity, has established its existence through the subjugation of the indigenous Palestinian population and the Wall serves as a reminder of that.”
DELEGITIMIZATION9/19/17 – SJP members chanted the delegitimizing chant of “hey hey, ho ho, the apartheid has got to go” in front of a mural they painted on campus containing “the names of children who died by the hands of the Israel Defense Forces.” An additional mural had “End Apartheid” on it. Earlier in the day, SJP members tabled, and a sign near the table said “End Apartheid.”
