Subject: Israeli Academics for Peace
 
Dear friends,
 
There was a call from many people that signed the petition, that it is high time that
the academics in Israel who are supportive of peace and oppose the occupation
will have an organized and visible voice in the Israeli public.
We therefore thought to set up such an "organization", which for the moment
simply means the following web-site:
 
 
Its still under construction.
The idea is to have a place to exchange information and ideas, and organize activities.
 
Any suggestions will be most welcomed.
 
Please distribute it among your colleagues, and it also offers an easier way to sign the Ariel petition.
 
cheers,
nir

Israeli Academics Opposing the Occupation and Settlements policies

We, academics from a variety of disciplines and from all the institutions of higher learning in Israel, hereby publicly express our support for a two state peaceful solution, and our opposition to the continuation of the occupation and the establishment of settlements in the occupied territories.

Our conscience and our public responsibility compel us to express a clear position and support the chance for a peace agreement, which the settlements are undermining.

Petition Regarding Ariel College


Petition regarding Ariel College

We, academics from a variety of disciplines and from all the institutions of higher learning in Israel, hereby publicly express our opposition to the continuation of the occupation and the establishment of settlements in the occpied territories.
Therefore, we declare our refusal to participate in any academic activity, of any sort, that takes place in the college operating in the settlement Ariel.
Ariel was established on occupied land. A few kilometers from flourishing Ariel, Palestinians live in hardship in villages and refugee camps, deprived of basic of human rights and life of dignity.
Not only are they denied access to higher education, some of them do not have access to their own lands and means of livelihood, denied of access even to electricity and running water. Two different realities exist in the occupied territories side by side, resulting from a policy that is leading to Apartheid.
Ariel is an illegal settlement, in breach of the international law and the Geneva convention, which Israel has signed.
The establishment of Ariel was aimed at one and only purpose: to prevent the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, thereby denying us, citizens of Israel, the chance of ever achieving a peaceful existence in this region.
Ariel is not part of sovereign Israel and we can not be obliged to go there.
Our conscience and our public responsibility compel us to express a clear position, especially at the current time, when there is a real chance for a peace agreement; it is now clearer than ever that the settlements’ purpose is to undermine it.
