    If there is no justice for Palestinians (end the military occupation/stop the illegal colonies/settlements), then there will be no peace. Resistance is legal under International Law.

      Your obsession with a Judenrein palestine is rather revolting. Jews are allowed to build houses just like gentiles. Deal with it.

      I didn’t know that firing rockets at civilians was legal under International Law. Could I get a citation for that?

            looks like not a lot of action for Jewhating Muslims in Arkansas.

      Despite its precedents in the Nazis’ kauf nicht bei Juden
      campaign begun in 1933 and the expulsion of Jews from German universities by
      “Hitler’s Professors,” and the Arab economic boycott of Israel now over 66
      years old, the BDS movement may fairly be called, despite local variations,
      “Jews Against Themselves.” It was begun in England in April 2002 by the Jewish
      academic Steven Rose and his wife. Espousal of the boycott of Israel,
      especially its academic institutions, soon became the identifying mark of
      “progressive” English Jews, so much so that Howard Jacobson devoted a whole
      satirical novel (The Finkler Question, 2010) to “the Jews of shame,”
      people who were ashamed of Israel’s very existence, though not of their own
      illiteracy, cowardice, and treachery.

    Zionism is racism and Israel is a theocratic Zionism nation built on Fascist principles whose everyday intolerance, theft of property, religious and cultural hegemony, apartheid practices, and routine and continuing Plan D slaughter is contrary to American principles that are enshrined in our Bill of Rights. Hillel is a propaganda mouthpiece for Israel which prohibits the freedom of speech of its members by stiffing them from speaking out in protest or discussion in regards to anything negative about Israel or Zionism. Hillel should be banned as a foreign national tool of propaganda on US university campuses. I urge its members to revolt and join other open-Hillel organizations that refuse to be haltered that will permit open dialogue and free speech. Universities need to be a venue for tolerance, learning and free discourse, not captive audiences for tyrannical ideas that encourage practices that manifest things that Americans are fundamentally opposed to as a free and thinking people. Tufts deserves free speech, not propaganda on its campus.

    Liberty and freedoms are won, but rarely given. Fight for your rights and liberties. Continue the struggle. To be able to question and ask and hear all sides of an argument is fundamental to reasoning, enlightened cognition and the discernment between fact and fiction. Truth is often hard to find and at other times hard to miss, but when it is recognized it will often slap you in the face with its powerful presence. When Hillel is willing to take the challenge to any debate on Israel or Zionism and allow its members or others on campus to hear two sides of such an argument in the democratic spirit, then it will show that it has a purpose on a university campus. Tufts should be an example of enlightened thinking for other campuses across this nation. Uphold your bill of rights and its principles of freedom and liberty!

    Shame on Tufts for collaborating with a right wing/racist organization like the Hillel to invite racist speakers to its campus.

      This is just more Hasbara which Israel has been doing for many many years to conceal their true and historically verifiable intent for Palestine and beyond. It is complete domination and removal of all Arabs by any means necessary. And the USA is helping Israel in this. Those who think this is a lie and have drunk the Israeli Kool Aid do some unbiased research and you will see the leadership of Israel has made their intention crystal clear for over 50 years.

    The intention behind hosting the talk was not to provide a platform for political or religious propaganda. It was a talk by a lawyer providing his and his organisation’s views on the international law implications of Operation Protective Edge. I see no reason to discourage academic discussion, no matter who the speaker might be.

    If this is an example of thoughtful debate by Tufts students, faculty, and/or administrators, then the University has failed miserably. This thread represents a disgraceful, dishonest and hypocritical vetting of “issues.” It’s not really worth the effort to address the ignorance, hate and ugliness embedded in these comments. But I remain amused by all the armchair warriors for rights and justice, but conveniently, only for this one group of people. I’d like a show of hands from those of you residing in the United States regarding your willingness to acknowledge that you are oppressors living on land stolen from Native Americans, your willingness to vacate that land asap, pay compensation, and otherwise show your deep remorse for your unconscionable behavior. As for human rights horrors and violations of international law, how about some Saudi beheadings or crucifixions? Yes, crucifixion was recommended by Saudi prosecutors in a recent court case, but I’m guessing that’s not of interest, because Muslims killing Muslims doesn’t concern you, and you can’t blame Saudi behavior on Israel. The moral outrage of folks on this thread rings amazingly hollow, given their comfort with ignoring truly horrific behavior close to home and farther away. One can reasonably disagree about Israeli policies and choices, but the folks on this thread wouldn’t seem to understand reasonable if it walked up and bit them, which is a tragedy for the people they so loudly claim to care about.
