Last year, I discovered proof that Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) truly believe that Israel has no right to exist, but have to pretend otherwise in order to get university funds and reject claims of antisemitism.
Now it seems they can’t bother pretending anymore. From a piece of theirs in the California Aggie, the official campus newspaper for UC Davis, in response to another piece by Aggies for Israel accusing SJP of spreading hate.
Lastly, it is an ideological fantasy to really believe that progress is possible so long as the state of Israel exists. Underlying this naive fantasy is the belief that a state that engages in racist laws, systematic killings and home demolitions can also function as a beacon of peace. The goal of Palestinian resistance is not to establish “love” with those who are responsible for the suffering of the Palestinian people; it is to completely dismantle those forces at play.
Please join me in contacting UC Davis Chancellor Gary May in letting him know about this. It is completely unacceptable for a university club, which I assume is receiving funding, to promote the destruction of a country.
