The SJP chapter at Chapel Hill is not demonstrating much courage in disinviting Ms. Khalid, one of their strongest voices. Especially when we often see and hear of Palestinians showing brave resistance to the pure evil of Israel’s military occupation of their land and lives. Best for leadership of this chapter to do a post-analysis of what was gained, and lost, by this capitulation. Who did you appease.? Will they reciprocate your kind hearted gesture?
SJP- Chapel Hill: you are dealing with ruthless ideologues and purveyors ofa movement whose goal is to rid Palestine of its native inhabitants and to recreate the biblical Eretz Israel. It means the destruction of nation states which are a threat to Israel’s hegemony with the assistance of the U.S. Time not to be naive but an existentialist whose civilization, culture and land are at risk.
