    Thought you’d be interested in interviewing, HOssein Keshavarz, the director of “Dog Sweat” who will be in the Bay Area next week. He’s going to be with us at San Jose State Iranian Studies for a screening of the movie and a discussion. I thought maybe you’d like to interview him for Weds. show! Let me know. Thanks, Persis Karim

    attempts to silence Ilan Pappe…. see attached letter…see the letter circulating about “safety of Jewish students”

    By Ruth King on February 16th, 2012
    Largest Public University in U.S. Promotes Anti-Israel Speaker on its Campuses
    From NCJA Academia and Campus Life Task Force Chairman, Tammi Benjamin. Please circulate this to your lists and take action.

    Ilan Pappe is an Israeli Jewish academic who harbors deep animosity towards the Jewish state, has publicly called for its elimination, and engages in activities to harm its citizens, such as a campaign to boycott Israeli academics, which he helped to found. In addition, he openly supports the terrorist organization Hamas and falsely accuses Israel of “crimes against humanity,” including “genocide” and “ethnic cleansing.”

    He will speak February 20, 22, and 23 on three California University campuses with official sponsorship and funding by University departments and administrative offices. In addition, on each campus the event has been organized and promoted by a faculty member or top university administrator who has publicly expressed his or her hatred of Israel and has participated in many anti-Israel events, including the campaign to boycott Israeli academics.

    Although we are concerned about Ilan Pappe’s talk per se, we are more concerned that the talks are organized and promoted by officials and faculty of the California State University system, using the name, resources, and imprimatur of CSU, in order to vilify and harm the Jewish state and its supporters. In this way, taxpayers like us are subsidizing the promotion of hateful indoctrination in our nation’s largest public university.

    Dear Chancellor Reed and Other California State Leaders:

    I am a professor at the CSU at the San Jose State University Campus. I’m the coordinator for the Middle East Studies program at SJSU, and a concerned faculty member. I’ve seen a growing attempt on the part of some organizations to silence dissent particularly where it concerns the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As you may know, our institutions of higher learning must remain an atmosphere for the free exchange of ideas, where students and faculty, can engage in debate and discussion even about the most challenging subjects. There has been an attempt by a number of organizations to silence university organizations where it concerns attempts to engage in criticism of Israel. Such a case is now emerging again.
    I understand you are receiving pressure to censure a series of talks
    at various CSU and UC campuses by the Israeli historian Ilan Pappe.

    I urge you to NOT cave in to this new form of McCarthyism which seeks
    to prevent speech it does not like; a university should be free of censorship and should value opportunities to engage our students in the free engagement of ideas, of democratic values we hold dear. .

    CSU campuses have been the site of all sorts of talks and speeches by
    people of different opinions and beliefs.

    I urge you not to be cowed by those who seek to prevent critical discussion and debate on Israel. Professor Ilan Pappe, a professor of history from Israel has had numerous attempts to silence him both inside and outside Israel. Let us show him that we are a beacon for free ideas and that we support our students in understanding the complexity of the issues. Professor Ilan Pappe is a world-renowned historian on the history of Israel. Let us allow him to speak. Let us not engage in McCarthyism.
