One more boycott effort is needed: the entire rest of the world must stop buying
anything made in the US! At least, the Arab world should sever all economic
dependence on the United States. Does anyone know if such an effort is being
launched? Susan Akram.

Dear Colleague;

As of noon on Friday, more than 120 university academics and researchers from
across Europe had signed a letter to be published in the Guardian calling for a
European boycott of research and cultural links with Israel (copy of letter and
signatories follow).  We are starting a similar campaign in the US.  Below is a
letter with similar contents directed at US academics and researchers. We will
publish this letter in a major newspaper (Washington Post or New York Times).
If you are willing to sign this letter, please send an email with your name and
academic affiliation/position to [log in to unmask]

This is for researchers, teachers, and academics.  Note also that signatories
will be posted on the web page of http://www.BoycottIsraeliGoods.org in a few
days but all signatories are signing in a personal capacity.   Institutional
affiliations will be given only for identification purposes and this will be
explicitly stated.

Thanks,

Letter:

There is widespread international condemnation for Israel's policy of violent
repression against the Palestinian people in the Occupied Territories and its
denial of basic human rights such as the right of refugees to return to their
homes and lands. The Israeli government appears impervious to moral appeals from
world leaders or to United Nations resolutions. The major potential source of
effective criticism, the United States government, seems reluctant to act and
continues to fund Israel to the tune of billions of dollars per year and support
it diplomatically.

However, there are ways of exerting pressure from within the US. Support for
Israel comes from many US cultural and research institutions, including those
funded from the US government with our tax dollars (through NSF, NIH, the
Binational Science Foundation, and others).  This is done through conferences,
collaborations, grants, and contracts and involve both Israeli academic
institutions and individuals. This active collaboration allows "business as
usual" while Israel engages in violations condemned by all human rights
organizations.

Israeli academicians have been rather reluctant to exert pressure on their own
government and many actually contribute actively to prolonging the suffering of
the Palestinian people (a recent Israeli academic conference even addressed the
issue of "transfer" or expulsion of the Palestinians).

Therefore, we declare a moratorium on any further such support and ask our
colleagues to join us in suspension of all such contacts and support unless and
until Israel:

a) Abides by all relevant UN resolutions (UNGA 194, UNSC 242, 383, 1402 etc.),
and
b) Complies with human rights as stated in the Universal Declaration on Human
Rights and the Fourth Geneva Convention to which Israel is signatory.
c) Opens serious peace negotiations with the Palestinians, along the lines
proposed in many peace plans including most recently that sponsored by the
Saudis and the Arab League.

European letter

Despite widespread international condemnation for its policy of violent
repression against the Palestinian people in the Occupied Territories, the
Israeli government appears impervious to moral appeals from world leaders. The
major potential source of effective criticism, the United States, seems
reluctant to act. However there are ways of exerting pressure from within
Europe. Odd though it may appear, many national and European cultural and
research institutions, including especially those funded from the EU and the
European Science Foundation, regard Israel as a European state for the purposes
of awarding grants and contracts. (No other Middle Eastern state is so
regarded). Would it not therefore be timely if at both national and European
level a moratorium was called upon any further such support unless and until
Israel abide by UN resolutions and open serious peace negotiations with the
Palestinians, along the lines proposed in many peace plans including most
recently that sponsored by the Saudis and the Arab League.
