2/25/15 – Steven Salaita delivered a talk entitled “Palestine, Civility, and the Demands of Academic Freedom,” that was part of a national speaking tour on more than 10 campuses. In his talk, Salaita demonized Israel, falsely accusing it of barbarity, brutality and depravity, and of perpetrating war crimes and mass slaughter, and he delegitimized Israel by falsely accusing it of settler colonialism. Salaita also stated that he opposed Zionism and the notion of a Jewish state, and he falsely accused Zionists of making “phony claims of antisemitism” to mask Israel’s war crimes and shut down all criticism of Israel. In addition, Salaita touted his role as a founder of the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel and a promoter of the academic boycott at the American Studies Association meeting at which the boycott was endorsed. Salaita’s talk was sponsored by UNLV Interdisciplinary Degree Programs, including Gender and Sexuality Studies, and Afro-American Studies.
