[This statement was released on 11 September 2015. To sign this statement, click here.] We, the undersigned academics, are deeply concerned about the escalating violence after the general elections held on 7 June in Turkey.

Al Jazeera America Interviews Jadaliyya Co-Editor Noura Erakat About Arson-Murder of Baby Ali Saad Dawabshe

[Noura Erakat on AJAM Interview 31 Jul 2015]

At roughly 4 AM on Friday 31 July 2015, Israeli settlers burned to death eighteen-month old Palestinian baby boy Ali Saad Dawabsheh by setting fire to his family's home while they slept.
