The Gettysburgian – The College’s stance on Israeli occupation: What no one really mentions
(Description note, “We are, for better or worse, in many ways isolated from the world in our small college in southern Pennsylvania, so the images of graffiti covered concrete walls looming over frightened kids motivated me to take some time out of my day to do a bit of research on the occupation, and what I found was surprising. Gettysburg College has already picked a side…Let’s not ignore the fact, either, that the BDS movement is a relatively moderate response to the realities of the Israeli Occupation. In spite of the movement’s criticism (launched by politicians such as Secretary Clinton), responding to the anti-Palestinian violence with a refusal to help enable those actions is neither rash nor anti-semitic. It is simply a moral response felt (and feel) obligated to take. Without a doubt, the Israeli Occupation will be remembered as one of the most divisive issues in modern history. And while in rainy Pennsylvania we may be far away from the walls being raised in Gaza, we must all decide for ourselves what side we’re on, and as a community what actions we should take. We shouldn’t let Penn Hall decide for us.”)
