“Notes on Palestine/Israel” is an annual publication put out by Cornell Students for Justice in Palestine as part of our wider efforts to increase anti-Zionist and anti-imperialist political consciousness on Cornell University’s campus and beyond. As campus Palestine activists, we are often accused of being unwilling and unable to “dialogue” reasonably with our Zionist counterparts so we open this volume of “Notes” with our analysis of the problems of engaging in such empty and token calls to dialogue. Dialogue in our view is not just mere claim and denial but an actual critical engagement with real political questions. With that in mind, we offer this volume of “Notes” as our dialogue. It covers topics ranging from the complicity of the Lebanese Phalangists in the 1982 massacre, to the next steps for Palestine solidarity activists, to a critique of the racism and classism found in Israeli society, to an evaluation of the role of cinema in portraying the conflict.
