Israelis in Non-Israeli Universities
(Trinity College, Ireland) Ronit Lentin speaks against Israel in a Palestinian event in Vienna, November 23rd 2010

The article follows bio
Dr. Ronit Lentin was born in Haifa before Israel was established, but has lived in Ireland since 1969.   She currently heads the Sociology department at Trinity College, Dublin, in addition to being director of the masters program of philosophy in Race, Ethnicity, and conflict.   She is also a founder and member of the Trinity Immigration Initiative.   Dr. Lentin is the author of Co-Memory and Melancholia: Israelis Memorializing the Palestinian Nakba, Women and Politics of Military Confrontation: Palestinian and Israeli Gendered Narratives of Dislocation, and Thinking Palestine.  

In October 2010, Dr. Ronit Lentin signed onto a letter addressed to Mike Leigh that was organized by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel.   In this letter, Mike Leigh was thanked for withdrawing his participation in the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film School.  In July 2010, Dr. Ronit Lentin signed a petition to Minister Gideon Sa’ar claiming that lecturers who support BDS should not be punished for their treasonous behavior.   Also in July 2010, Dr. Lentin signed onto a petition organized by the Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity Movement, which referred to the proposed law against BDS as fascism, reaffirmed support of boycotting settlement products as well as companies that “profit from the occupation,” and asserted that the settlements are a crime against the Palestinian people.   In January 2009, right in the middle of the Gaza War, Dr. Ronit Lentin signed onto an Israeli “call from within” petition that accused Israel of committing war crimes, referring to Israeli policy as “criminal,” called for the UN Security Council to impose sanctions on Israel, called upon the world to prosecute Israelis for war crimes, and called upon nations to not upgrade their ties with Israel.   Also in 2009, Dr. Lentin signed onto the Jewish Appeal to support the Goldstone Report, which asserted support for Justice Goldstone’s findings, stated that the Israeli government should be held accountable for its crimes, and called for the Gaza War crimes allegations to be brought to the ICC unless a credible non-military institution in Israel investigates the war crimes allegations.   Dr. Lentin has also received praise from the Coalition against Israeli Apartheid as well as Australians for Palestine, who in turn promotes her work.
