[Steven Salaita.]

On 6 August, Inside Higher Ed reported that the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) had rescinded a job offer to Steven G. Salaita, who was set to begin a tenured position in the American Indian Studies program this month. The article quoted “sources familiar with the university’s decision” as saying that the rescinding of Salaita’s job offer was due to the “tone” of comments that he had made on social media regarding Israel’s most recent attack on Gaza. The report also quoted UIUC English Professor Cary Nelson as attributing the decision to what he referred to as Salaita’s “venomous statements” and “foul-mouthed presence in social media,” ...

Paul Kelemen (PK): I am of the generation, coming to adulthood in the late 1960s, which was deeply influenced by the Vietnamese struggle and by national liberation movements in Africa. Yet most of us knew next to nothing of what the clashes between Israel and Palestinian guerrilla fighters along its borders represented. The 1967 war and Israel’s subsequent occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, and the Golan Heights was a wakeup call. But there had to be several further such calls before we could talk about an ...

Cary Nelson: The Lackey of Power

[Cary Nelson. Image by Sage Ross.]

Israel recommenced its offensive against Gaza by taking the life of a ten-year-old Palestinian child, whose death will now disappear into the anonymity of this assault’s brutal statistics. This latest upsurge in the ongoing violence that is the Israeli occupation has turned around the deaths of children: the Palestinian youths gratuitously killed by IDF snipers; the three settler teenagers murdered on the West Bank by a maverick group, which Israel cynically used as an excuse for its incursion into the occupied territories and the further murder of Palestinians young and old; the hideous torture and burning alive of Mohammed Abu Khdeir by Israeli “nationalists,” ...

U.S. Should Stop Funding Israel, or Let Others Broker Peace

[Image from Wikipedia]

As Israel’s primary patron of economic, military and diplomatic support, the United States has a duty and the capacity to help resolve the Palestinian-Israel conflict. It should either comply with its domestic laws and cease military aid to Israel or simply step aside and allow international mechanisms to function without obstruction. Ending aid will either restrain Israel and facilitate a political resolution or encourage a backlash that induces the global community to intervene. Between 1949 and 2008, the U.S. has provided Israel with 103.6 billion dollars, more than all of the foreign aid it has provided to Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America combined. Since ...
