10/30/17 – SJP held the event, “Human Rights in Palestine: A Talk with Ajamu Barak,” who ran with Jill Stein as the 2016 Vice-Presidential candidate for the Green Party. During the event, Baraka delegitimized Israel, claiming, “for many of us in the black liberation movement…[w]e took a position from the very beginning that what we had in Israel Palestine was in fact a colonial situation. We had a situation where we had a settler colony established.” He further delegitimized Israel, stating, “We have this notion of…the Israelis as innocent settler nation with a right to exist, and in fact…Palestine cannot be seen as an isolated situation. It has to be seen as one expression…of the continuation of this pan-European colonial capitalist project…A project that is now being recognized…as the primary enemy of collective humanity.” He additionally demonized Israelis, stating,”We are organizing…a counter protest against some Zionist groups on our campus [who] are bringing former or current IDF soldiers to speak…We are trying to organize large amounts of people to show support against…the importation of colonizers and human rights abusers on our campuses.” He demonized Israel further, stating, “any mortal rational person would end up being opposed to the Israeli state, opposed to Israeli domination.” Finally, he expressed support for BDS, saying, “One of the most marvelous tools that have been produced over the last decade or so related to the struggle for Palestinian rights is the BDS movement.” An audience member further delegitimized Israel by accusing it of “pinkwashing,” a demonizing term implying that Israel is malevolently representing itself as a safe haven for LGBQT people in order to hide Israel’s “crimes.”
