Banner Drop: UC Must Divest/End Study Abroad in "Israel" Now
by UCSC Students for Justice in Palestine
Sunday Mar 10th, 2019 8:19 PM
On Wednesday, March 7th, a group of people dropped a banner in Quarry Plaza that read "UC must divest/End Study Abroad in "Israel" Now." SJP supports the message these students were sending.
We have grave concerns that the UC's study abroad programs in Israel are opposed to the values of academic freedom and are complicit in the oppression of Palestinians. Israeli study abroad programs have a demonstrated track record of being racist against non-white students. This is uncontroversial even to the UC, which, in its program guide for Israel study abroad programs, the UC itself writes, "In some cities in Israel, there has been an increase in hostility to those who appear to have African ancestry. Students who can be mistaken for African immigrants should avoid traveling alone in downtown areas."

Non white students, and Palestinians in particular, often face discrimination by Israeli border security and are not permitted entry simply for being Palestinian. Other people racialized as nonwhite also face intense forms of discrimination by the Israeli state when trying to enter and in their time there. There is no question about whether or not the Israeli state is xenophobic and anti-Black. That the UC explicitly highlight's the Israeli government's racism indicates to us that the UC should not continue to offer programs where members of its student body are being put at risk. Why should the UC continue to offer a program in a place that actively discriminates against Palestinians, Black people and Arab Jews?

Further, even if the UC study abroad program in Israel did not exclude nonwhite students, SJP would continue to oppose it. As SJP, we adhere to the practice of BDS - Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions - which is not a movement, but a set of tactics that activists have historically used to pressure colonial-supremacist states such as South Africa. So long as Palestinians in Israel continue to exist under an apartheid regime, so long as protesters in Gaza continue to be shot down and murdered by the Israeli military, so long as Israel continues to expand their illegal settlements across the West Bank, so long as they evict Palestinians from their homes and terrorize Palestinian political prisoners, so long as they do not allow Palestinian refugees to return to their land, we stand firmly against the UC's study abroad programs in Israel and all other forms of normalization with the Israeli state and its institutions.

Organizing for Palestinian liberation and return must also inevitably mean boycotting and challenging institutions and programs that reproduce the social ills of neocolonialism - namely, racism, xenophobia, state violence, and dispossession of national communities.

Please note that this event was not sponsored by SJP, although SJP members were free to participate in their own capacity as individuals.

UC is a federal and state funded public university promoting a US military base called Israel that sits on land stolen from the Palestinians with our tax dollars to the tune of at least $4 billion a year, supported 100% by the Democratic and Republican Parties at all levels of office. It is an integral part of the US war machine which military exists to maximize the profits of the oil companies and munitions makers. Only Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party staunchly support the Palestinian liberation struggle.

The following reading list is offered because we expect UC students to be avid readers, and so that everyone understands the anti-Semitic insult that is Israel to all Americans of Jewish descent, atheist and religious, who are outraged that we are told that some piece of land thousands of miles away where we have never been is our "home." It is Israel and its American Zionist sponsors who are anti-Semitic, both against Jews and Arabs. Enjoy the reading and learning:

Laughing Israelis at 9/11 Inside Job site in NYC:
Israelis – Not Muslims – Cheered in Jersey City on 9/11 by Glen Ford, 11/27/15 at

9/11 Suspects: The Dancing Israelis, The Corbett Report: 17 minutes at:
Correction on speculation that the Laughing Israelis were a distraction: The Zionists knew they had absolute immunity from prosecution in their complicity in perpetrating the 9/11 Inside Job and view themselves as a master race, “the chosen people,” which we see daily now in Israel. This is further proof that all nationalism is reactionary and religion is both superstition and reactionary.

Laughing Israelis at World Trade Center on 9/11/01 identified themselves on TV, and much more on Israel’s complicity in the 911 Inside Job which should surprise no one since Israel, a US military base since its inception in 1948, is and always has been part of the US military-agent provocateur-spy system of US imperialism. EHUD OLMERT, mayor of Jerusalem in 2001, from a terrorist Irgun family, visited New York City on 9/10/11. While all civilian flights were grounded immediately after the 9/11/01 Inside Job and for at least a week thereafter, a full El Al Boeing 747 left New York City’s JFK airport for Israel with authorization from the US Department of Defense, and US military officials were at the JFK airport to make sure this flight was cleared for take-off. Florida, the alleged base of the non-existent “Arab hijackers” was and is a base for Israeli Mossad operations as is the rest of the USA. EHUD BARAK, who has degrees in physics and mathematics, attended Stanford University, was Israel’s Defense Minister during the Massacre of Gaza of 2008-2009, making him a war criminal according to the Goldstone Report, and was Prime Minister of Israel from July 1999 to March 2001, when he came to the US to work as a partner in SCP Partners, a Mossad-run private equity company concerned with “security,” which had in its portfolio a company called Megallurg Holdings, Inc. capable of producing and applying an advanced form of super-thermite, a powerful explosive, which was found in the dust of the Twin Towers. On 9/11/01, he stated on BBC TV that the world faces a War on Terror and called for an invasion of Afghanistan, clearly the cover for the 911 Inside Job.

“The Real Story Behind Israel’s Blooming Desert” by Whitney Webb, 6/15/18 at
Though the official narrative of the state of Israel claims that it has turned the land it occupies from an empty desert into a lush, agricultural wonder, the actual fate of the land following Israel’s establishment in 1948 tells a very different story. Indeed, prior to 1948, the historical record demonstrates that Palestinian farms were very productive and that both Palestinian Arabs and Jewish settlers were successful farmers. For example, a UN report on agriculture in Palestine between 1945 and 1946 recorded that Palestinian-grown crops accounted for nearly 80 percent of Palestine’s total agricultural yield that season, with Palestinian farms producing over 244,000 tons of vegetables, 73,000 tons of fruit, 78,000 tons of olives, and 5 million liters of wine. UN Report is at
Two years later, when the majority of Palestinians were forced from their land during the “Nakba” that founded the state of Israel, the farms and orchards that had previously been tended by Palestinians were left abandoned, as their owners fled under the threat of death at the hands of Zionist militias.
As Israeli historian and journalist Meron Benvenisti detailed in his book Sacred Landscape: The Buried History of the Holy Land Since 1948:
By April 1948 Jewish farmers had already begun harvesting the crops that had ripened in the abandoned fields and picking the citrus fruit in Arab groves. […] by mid-1949 two-thirds of all land sown with grain in Israel was abandoned Arab land.”
Thus, it was land theft that was largely responsible for Israel’s initial agricultural production, not the labor or agricultural expertise of Zionist settlers.
Indeed, if Israel has not actually improved the land by making “the desert bloom” but instead degraded the land, the legitimacy of the state of Israel itself becomes questionable, as it suggests that its native inhabitants – the Palestinians – were better caretakers of the land than the current occupiers. For this reason, Israel must continue to propagate the myth regardless of the facts, and continue to deny Palestine’s rich cultural history and agricultural legacy.
With Israel now facing the consequences of its mistreatment of the land and its resources, the historical revisionism once used to sell the disparity between Israeli and Palestinian agricultural prowess has become ineffective. For that reason, Israel must now use other tactics — chemical warfare through toxic agrochemicals, the physical destruction of Palestinian agricultural infrastructure, and illegal blockades – in order to keep the artificial narrative alive, creating the illusion of primitivism and scarcity where none exists.

“Lawsuit Filed against U.S. Government for Illegal Aid to Nuclear Israel.” By Sott. 8/12/16 at
“A little known aspect of Kennedy’s foreign policy was his insistence that Israel stop its nuclear program. In May 1963, he warned Ben Gurion that if Israel didn’t allow inspectors to Dimona, Israel would find itself completely isolated. The Israeli PM was not pleased and abruptly resigned. Six months later, Kennedy was assassinated. It would be a blessing to JFK’s memory of Symington’s work were to vindicate Kennedy’s position, and isolate the Israeli regime for their unacknowledged weapons of mass destruction. (Symington was JFK’s first choice to be his VP.)” Kennedy’s Vice President, Lyndon Johnson, who led the assassination team of the CIA and their anti-Communist Cuban lickspittles to assassinate JFK on 11/22/63, not only escalated the war against Vietnam, but was so staunchly pro-Israel that he allowed Israel to illegally, with malice aforethought, attack an American spy ship, the USS Liberty, during Israel’s 6 day war in June 1967, killing 34 and maiming 174 of its crew.

“Representatives of Palestinian civil society launched the BDS movement in 2005.

“The call for BDS specified that "these non-violent punitive measures" should last until Israel fully complies with international law by (1) ending the occupation and colonization of all Arab territories and removing the barrier wall; (2) affirming the human rights of Israel's Arab-Palestinian citizens to full equality; and (3) affirming the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their land as required by UN General Assembly Resolution 194.”

“BDS was a major factor behind the 46 percent decrease in foreign direct investment in Israel in 2014, according to a UN report.

Walled: Israeli Society at an Impasse by Sylvain Cypel
(2005, 2006) Other Press, ISBN 13:978-1-5905 1-210-4
(A good early history of the apartheid wall and history and contemporary life of Israel and its relationship to the US as a military base. The lack of separation of church and state is evident as “All Israeli students study the Hebrew Bible in public school for several hours a week, from the elementary grades through high school (knowledge of the Bible is tested on the high school exit examination.)” (p. 177) Superstition and militarism clearly go together This is a sign of an extremely backward society).

A Wall in Palestine by Rene Backman
(2006, 2010) Picador/St. Martin’s Press, NY ISBN 978-0-312-42781-8
(Good maps of the apartheid wall and description of resistance to it; it is clearly a land grab as there are means of going through wall and thus it has nothing to do with security; also describes segregated roads and racist license system).

An Israeli in Palestine by Jeff Halper (an American who moved to Israel in 1973 at age 27, is a professor of anthropology, is the leader of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions and supports the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions Campaign against Israel described in Appendix 4). (2008) Pluto Press, ISBN 978-0-7453-2226-1. “There is not even a civil mechanism by which Jewish, Christian, and Muslim citizens of Israel can marry each other since personal status, citizenship, marriage, death, inheritance, is regulated by religious and not civil law.” p. 76

Palestine Inside Out by Saree Makdisi, (2008, 2010) Norton Press, ISBN 978-0-393-33844-7. With a beautiful foreword by Alice Walker, comparing the racist horrors of Zionist Israel to white racism in the USA, Makdisi, a Palestinian-American professor of English literature at UCLA, writes a detailed account of the daily horrors of life in Occupied Palestine. His periodic sections “By the Numbers” offer useful statistics, his maps are plentiful, and his entire book is a ringing indictment of the mental illness that is religion and the anti-women horror of theocratic states. As Americans read it, we must remember that this is all paid for with our tax dollars and supported 100% by every single Democratic and Republican politician at every level of government. It is opposed by all socialist parties and the Green Party.

Alan Hart, a former ITN (part of British news agency that produces outstanding Channel 4 of UK) and BBC Panorama correspondent, covers the horrors of Zionism in Israel and its relationship to the United States from 1967 to January 2010 from the perspective of a non-Jewish journalist with lots of worthwhile insights.
