Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French... What is going on in Palestine today cannot be justified by any moral code of conduct.

InCACBI Salutes AAAS Decision to Boycott Israeli Academic Institutions

The Indian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (InCACBI) welcomes the decision of the Association for Asian American Studies (AAAS) to boycott Israeli academic institutions in protest against the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine, infringements on the right to education of Palestinians, and restrictions on the academic freedom of Palestinian scholars and students in the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel.

We salute the 800 members/academics of AAAS who have taken a principled stand on this issue by endorsing the resolution to boycott Israeli academic institutions at their annual conference on April 17-20, 2013 in Seattle, Washington. (Link to news story)

AAAS’ uncompromising stance provides one more building block in the global expression of solidarity with the Palestinians – whose lands have been occupied by Israel, and who are subject to the day to day repression of the Israeli state’s apartheid policies.

We call on academic organizations in India and all over the world to follow AAAS’ example and support the Palestinian civil society call for Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS). As in the case of South Africa, international solidarity is critical to send out the message that citizens of conscience around the world will not tolerate business as usual with Israel.
