National Students for Justice in Palestine announced on Sunday that it will host its eighth annual conference at the University of California, Los Angeles, drawing concerns from some members of the school’s pro-Israel community. The event, based on the theme of “resistance in the face of adversity,” will take place from November 16-18. In a note explaining the conference’s goals, National SJP and its chapter at UCLA definedZionism — a diverse national liberation movement that supports the Jewish people’s right to self-determination in their historic homeland — as “ethnic cleansing, destruction, mass expulsion, apartheid, and death.” ....The Palestinian-led movement describes itself as an effort “to isolate Israel academically, culturally, economically and militarily,” in order to force the country to comply with international law. Critics accuse it of aiming to dismantle the Jewish state, a goal accepted by BDS co-founder Omar Barghouti, who has in the past rejected the notion that Jewish people have a right to self-determination by claiming that they are not a nation. UCLA to Host Student Conference That Advocates ‘Destruction’ of Jewish Self-Determination This is going to get real stupid real quick. Omar Barghouti is one evil bastard.
