Petition To Board of Directors of the University of Trondheim:

Voting to Academically Boycott Israel

By Mohamed Khodr, November 21, 2009

“No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it"
            ---President Theodore Roosevelt
Dear Honorable Members of the Board of Directors of NTNU:
It is my deep privilege to again write you on the issue of your upcoming vote, November 12, to consider the resolution to academically boycott Israel.   I have the honor to include with this letter a petition signed by close to 1320 individuals from around the world that includes prominent scholars, academicians, physicians, lawyers, authors, journalists, and individuals; all supporting the adoption of the resolution.   You will find among the signatories many Jews from Israel, Europe, and the U.S. who despite supporting Israel the state denounce its illegal military occupation of the Palestinians; especially the latest devastation of Gaza.
From reading the media I’m cognizant that you’ve received a larger petition from Pro Israel supporters who’ve had much time to utilize their well organized, financed, government and media supported network to garner a larger number of signatories to their petition.   This is the norm under any circumstance when Zionists in and outside of Israel perceive even the slightest airing of any criticism of Israel’s brutal policies condemned by all world bodies and most governments.  
This petition was written by one person, myself, without any organized or financial support, or media exposure, yet received enormous support in just eight days.  It strongly demonstrates the frustration of citizens both inside and outside of Israel toward a nation that has defied all international laws and norms and thus is able to continue its military subjugation of another people.   It is also a rejection of western governments who stand by Israel despite its inhumane actions toward the Palestinians.
The ready made clarion swords are unsheathed against all who dare criticize Israel using the most vile of words, especially the world’s most intimidating Scarlet Letter, “A”, for “Anti-Semite”, although the far majority of Jews today are not Semites.    The dishonorable use of Holocaust guilt and the false propaganda that Israel is constantly facing an existential threat ensures silence of all debates which only perpetuates the occupation of Palestinian land.
Not even respected and esteemed Nobel Peace Prize winners like Former President Jimmy Carter and former Archbishop Desmund Tutu are spared the venomous attacks by Pro Israel apologists.
David Horowitz, author of the 2006 book “The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America “, and founder of the nationwide campus campaign against Islam: “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week” wrote an article on his website, December 14, 2006 attacking Former President Jimmy Carter for writing his book “Palestine—Peace or Apartheid” as:
            “Jimmy Carter: Jew-Hater, Genocide-Enabler, Liar”
Alan Dershowitz, Professor of Law at Harvard University, a most dependable defender of Israel (“A Case for Israel”) described the Honorable Desmond Tutu at the Durban Conference (April 20, 2009) as:
            "Tutu is a bigot and a racist,"  He is "blind, deaf and dumb when it comes to issues of Israel".
U.S. Academic institutions have been especially attacked by Pro Israel agonists for any teaching involving the Middle East, Islam, or the Israeli Palestinian conflict.   While Israel strongly opposes any boycott against it its western Pro Israel lobbies nevertheless call for boycotts of academic, media, civil rights organizations, and Muslim charities it perceives as acting against Israel’s interests.
Case in Point is Daniel Pipes’ organization: whose sole purpose is to hound academics who teach or speak on the Israeli Palestinian conflict.
However this tactic was exposed by the former Israeli Minister of Education Shulamit Aloni during an interview on Democracy Now with Amy Goldman, who said: 
"Calling people Anti-Semitic, well it's a trick, we always use it. When from Europe somebody is criticizing Israel then we bring up the Holocaust. When in this country (U.S.A) people are criticizing Israel then they are anti-Semitic."
Twenty years ago the world witnessed the destruction of the Berlin Wall by citizens who yearned for freedom and not by governments.  As Professor Noam Chomsky aptly stated:  “States are not moral agents, people are, and can impose moral standards on powerful institutions.”
World governments and institutions for varied reasons have failed for decades to create peace in Israel/Palestine or take any action against Israel’s occupation and constant wars against Palestinians and its neighbors.  
Thus the only moral force still available to the world to bring peace to that troubled land of Prophets is the moral voices of citizens from around the world united for peace and justice for both Israeli’s and Palestinians.   
One such powerful moral voice that will set a worldwide precedent is your affirmation of the Resolution to academically boycott Israel.    Although the media may say otherwise rest assured that the world supports you in this endeavor that will endeavor a positive ripple effect around the world.   The world is thirsty for positive leadership on behalf of the hapless long suffering Palestinians and you ladies and gentlemen can take the first step by adopting this resolution.
I appeal and urge you to vote Yes for truth, justice, human rights, and the equality of freedom and dignity for all peoples.
With My Utmost Respect, I remain
Mohamed Khodr M.D., M.P.H.

P.S.S. Below are Excerpts from Relevant Articles  
“Letter from Israeli young men and women who reject Israel’s occupation and refuse to enlist in the army”
“The occupation creates an unbearable actuality for the Palestinians in the occupied territories. The checkpoint policy, land annexation, the building of the apartheid wall, paving of roads for Israeli’s only, settlement projects, and assassinations – all these have been sowing destruction in the West Bank for over 4 decades. The siege on Gaza and the prevention of importing materials, including basic food products and humanitarian aid, undermines the basic minimal living conditions of Gaza’s residents. We cannot tolerate such a reality.
The claim put forth by the spokespersons of the government and the army, that the continuation of the occupation arises from security reasons, has no substance. No country that has fought for its independence has ever been defeated by military means. The suffering of the Palestinian people and their subjugation is the cause of violent resistance. Israel’s public will never be safe as long as the Palestinian nation is under occupation. There is no military solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict – only peace will ensure life and security for Jews and Arabs in this country.
The Israeli government frequently boasts that Israel is “the only democracy in the Middle East”. The occupation is a complete contradiction to this claim. Can a government that controls the lives of millions of people who did not take part in elections be called a “democracy”? Can military rule of a civilian population be considered anything other than a dictatorship?
From the Website:

From Israeli Soldiers who served in the Occupied Territories Highlighting Israel’s IDF’s Abuses and who oppose the Occupation.
“Breaking the Silence is an organization of veteran Israeli soldiers that collects testimonies of soldiers who served in the Occupied Territories during the Second Intifadah. Soldiers who serve in the Territories are witness to, and participate in military actions which change them immensely. Cases of abuse towards Palestinians, looting, and destruction of property have been the norm for years, but are still excused as military necessities, or explained as extreme and unique cases. Our testimonies portray a different and grim picture of questionable orders in many areas regardind Palestinian civilians. These demonstrate the depth of corruption which is spreading in the Israeli military. While this reality which is known to Israeli soldiers and commanders exists in Israel's back yard, Israeli society continues to turn a blind eye, and to deny that which happens in its name. Discharged soldiers who return to civilian life discover the gap between the reality which they encountered in the Territories , and the silence which they encounter at home. In order to become a civilian again, soldiers are forced to ignore their past experiences. Breaking the Silence voices the experiences of those soldiers, in order to force Israeli society to address the reality which it created.

We demand accountability regarding Israel's military actions in the Occupied territories perpetrated by us and in our name.”

U.S. State Department: Israel is not a tolerant society    By Akiva Eldar
“Israel dismally fails the requirements of a tolerant pluralistic society,
according to a new report from the U.S. State Department.
Despite boasting religious freedom and protection of all holy sites, Israel
falls short in tolerance toward minorities, equal treatment of ethnic
groups, openness toward various streams within society, and respect for holy
and other sites.”
The comprehensive report, written by the State Department's Bureau of
Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, says Israel discriminates against groups
including Muslims, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Reform Jews, Christians, women and
The report says that the 1967 law on the protection of holy places refers to
all religious groups in the country, including in Jerusalem, but "the
government implements regulations only for Jewish sites. Non-Jewish holy
sites do not enjoy legal protection under it because the government does not
recognize them as official holy sites."
At the end of 2008, for example, all of the 137 officially recognized holy
sites were Jewish. Moreover, Israel issued regulations for the
Identification, preservation and guarding of Jewish sites only. Many
Christian and Muslim sites are said to be neglected, inaccessible or at risk
of exploitation by real estate entrepreneurs and local authorities.
The report makes it clear that practices that have become routine in Israel
are considered unacceptable in enlightened countries and should be
Among other examples, the report notes that more than 300,000 immigrants who
are not considered Jewish under rabbinical law are not allowed to marry and
divorce in Israel or be buried in Jewish cemeteries.”
Israel's apartheid is worse than South Africa's      By Yitzhak Laor
“Regardless of whether there is a Democrat or a Republican in the White House, the United States became a distinctly pro-Israel world power after the 1967 war. It has no intention of being a "balanced mediator" when it comes to the conflict with the Palestinians.
The prevailing attitude of all U.S. administrations was drafted by Henry
Morgenthau, and was later updated by Kenneth Waltz. One line guided all of
them - Dennis Ross, Martin Indyk, George Mitchell - essentially, that any
possible settlement must match the positions of the stronger party.
This is how the Americans abandoned the refugee issue, and this is why they
abandoned the opposition to settlements
But the binational state is already here. It has a rigid apartheid legal system, as
the High Court of Justice fades away.
The system preserving this apartheid is more ruthless than that seen in
South Africa, where the black were a labor force and could therefore also
make a living. It is equipped with the lie of being "temporary."
Occasionally, Israel's indifference comes up with allegations against the
Yes, it is apartheid     By Yossi Sarid   (Former Knesset MP)
"Apartheid," he (Jimmy Carter) said, "apartheid" - a dark, scary word coined by Afrikaners and meaning segregation, racial segregation.
What does he want from us, that evil man: What do we have to do with
apartheid? Does a separation fence constitute separation? Do separate roads
for Jewish settlers and Palestinians really separate? Are Palestinian
enclaves between Jewish settlements Bantustans?
There is no hint of similarity between South Africa and Israel, and only a
sick mind could draw such shadowy connections between them. Roadblocks and
inspections at every turn; licenses and permits for every little matter; the
arbitrary seizure of land; special privileges in water use; cheap, hard
labor; forming and uniting families by bureaucratic whim - none of these are
apartheid, in any way. They are an incontrovertible security necessity,
period…..all good  reasons for apartheid are bad reasons; apartheid always has a reason, and it never has a justification. And what acts like apartheid, is run like
apartheid and harasses like apartheid, is not a duck - it is apartheid. Nor
does it even solve the problem of fear: Today, everyone knows that all
apartheid will inevitably reach its sorry end.
Even Ehud Olmert has understood at last that continuing the present
situation is the end of the Jewish democratic state, as he recently said”.
America, stop sucking up to Israel        By Gideon Levy
“He (Obama) decided to address Israelis by video, but a persuasive speech won't
persuade anyone to end the occupation. He simply should have told the
Israeli people the truth. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who arrived
here last night, will certainly express similar sentiments: "commitment to
Israel's security," "strategic alliance," "the need for peace," and so on.
Before no other country on the planet does the United States kneel and plead like this. In other trouble spots, America takes a different tone. It bombs in Afghanistan, invades Iraq and threatens sanctions against Iran and North Korea. Did anyone in Washington consider begging Saddam Hussein to withdraw from occupied territory in Kuwait?
But Israel the occupier, the stubborn contrarian that continues to mock
America and the world by building settlements and abusing the Palestinians,
receives different treatment. Another massage to the national ego in one
video, more embarrassing praise in another.
Now is the time to say to the United States: Enough flattery. If you don't
change the tone, nothing will change. As long as Israel feels the United
States is in its pocket, and that America's automatic veto will save it from
condemnations and sanctions, that it will receive massive aid
unconditionally, and that it can continue waging punitive, lethal campaigns
without a word from Washington, killing, destroying and imprisoning without
the world's policeman making a sound, it will continue in its ways.
Illegal acts like the occupation and settlement expansion, and offensives
that may have involved war crimes, as in Gaza, deserve a different approach.
If America and the world had issued condemnations after Operation Summer
Rains in 2006 - which left 400 Palestinians dead and severe infrastructure
damage in the first major operation in Gaza since the disengagement - then
Operation Cast Lead never would have been launched.
It is true that unlike all the world's other troublemakers, Israel is viewed
as a Western democracy, but Israel of 2009 is a country whose language is
force….The Syrian president pleads for peace and
Israel callously dismisses him, the United States begs for a settlement free
ze and Israel turns up its nose. This is what happens when there are no
consequences for Israel's inaction.
For something to change, Israel must understand that perpetuating
the status quo will exact a painful price.
Israel of 2009 is a spoiled country, arrogant and condescending, convinced
that it deserves everything and that it has the power to make a fool of
America and the world. The United States has engendered this situation,
which endangers the entire Mideast and Israel itself. That is why there
needs to be a turning point in the coming year - Washington needs to finally
say no to Israel and the occupation.”

Nobel Laureate Accuses Israel of 'Ethnic Cleansing'
“Nobel peace laureate Mairead Maguire on Tuesday accused Israel of "ethnic
cleansing" policies in annexed east Jerusalem, where the municipality plans
to tear down almost 90 Arab homes.
"I believe the Israeli government is carrying out a policy of ethnic
cleansing against Palestinians here in east Jerusalem," said Maguire, who
won the 1976 Nobel prize for her efforts at reaching a peaceful solution to
the violence in Northern Ireland.
"I believe the Israeli government policies are against international law,
against human rights, against the dignity of the Palestinian people," she
said at a news conference.
It was held in a protest tent erected by residents of east Jerusalem's
Silwan neighbourhood where 88 Arab homes are under demolition orders.
The Israeli authorities say the houses were built or extended without the
necessary construction permits. Palestinians say the planned demolitions aim
at forcing them out of east Jerusalem.
If the demolition orders are carried out 1,500 people would be left homeless
in one of the largest forced evictions since Israel occupied mostly Arab
east Jerusalem in the 1967 war and later annexed it.
Israel considers Jerusalem to be its eternal and undivided capital, while
Palestinians want to make east Jerusalem the capital of their future state.
The Israeli human rights group B'Tselem says that since 2004 the Israeli
authorities have torn down more than 400 homes in east Jerusalem.”

 “Goldstone and Gaza”     By JIMMY CARTER
“In January 2009 rudimentary rockets had been launched from Gaza toward nearby Jewish communities, and Israel had wreaked havoc with bombs, missiles, and ground invading forces. Judge Goldstone’s claim is that they are both guilty of “crimes against humanity.” Predictably, both the accused parties have denounced the report as biased and inaccurate.
A year later, after the Israeli attack on Gaza, I was able to examine the damage done to the small and heavily populated area, surrounded by an impenetrable wall, with its gates tightly controlled. Knowing of the ability of Israeli forces, often using U.S. weapons, to strike targets with pinpoint accuracy, it was difficult to understand or explain the destruction of hospitals, schools, prisons, United Nations facilities, small factories and repair shops, agricultural processing plants and almost 40,000 homes.
The Goldstone committee….conclusion was that the civilian areas were targeted and the devastation was deliberate. Again, the criticism of Israel in the Goldstone report is justified.
Now and for the past 10 months, Israel has not permitted cement, lumber, panes of glass, or other building materials to pass their entry points into Gaza. Several hundred thousand homeless people suffered through last winter in a few tents, under plastic sheets, or huddled in caves dug into the debris of their former homes. The weather was warmer when I was there several months later, but the description of suffering through the winter cold was heartbreaking.
Another winter is now approaching, and neither the Israelis nor the international community has taken steps to alleviate the Gazans’ plight. United Nations agencies and leaders in the European community have offered to provide an avenue of channeling funds and building materials directly to the people in need, completely bypassing the Hamas political leaders. These officials, both in Gaza and in Damascus, have assured me that they would accept this arrangement.
There would be no chance for the misuse of such assistance for weapons, military fortifications, or other non-humanitarian purposes.
it is imperative that the United States and the international community take steps to assure that the rebuilding of Gaza be commenced, and without delay. The cries of homeless and freezing people demand relief.”
Jimmy Carter was president of the United States from 1977 to 1981 and is a member of the Elders.

“President Carter and Citizen Activists Witness Deliberate Destruction in
Gaza [Video]”
 “Upon seeing the destruction of the American International School (one of
seven schools completely destroyed in Gaza and 87 other schools severely
damaged), President Carter said, "I have to hold back tears when I see the deliberate destruction that has been wreaked against your people," adding that he felt partly responsible because the school had been "deliberately destroyed by
bombs from F-16s made in my country."
Carter said, "Tragically, the international community largely ignores the
cries for help, while the citizens of Gaza are treated more like animals
than human beings." He added, "Never before in history has a large community
been savaged by bombs and missiles and then deprived of the means to repair
itself. The responsibility for this terrible human rights crime lies in
Jerusalem, Cairo, Washington, and throughout the international community,"
Carter said.
Carter said, "This abuse must cease. The crimes must be investigated. The
wall must be brought down, and the basic right of freedom must come to you."

“Apartheid in the Holy Land”      By Desmond Tutu
“What is not so understandable, not justified, is what it (Israel) did to another people to guarantee its existence. I've been very deeply distressed in my visit to the Holy Land; it reminded me so much of what happened to us black people in South Africa. I have seen the humiliation of the Palestinians at checkpoints and roadblocks, suffering like us when young white police officers prevented us from moving about.
On one of my visits to the Holy Land I drove to a church with the Anglican bishop in Jerusalem. I could hear tears in his voice as he pointed to Jewish settlements. I thought of the desire of Israelis for security. But what of the Palestinians who have lost their land and homes?
My heart aches. I say why are our memories so short. Have our Jewish sisters and brothers forgotten their humiliation? Have they forgotten the collective punishment, the home demolitions, in their own history so soon? Have they turned their backs on their profound and noble religious traditions? Have they forgotten that God cares deeply about the downtrodden?
Israel will never get true security and safety through oppressing another people. A true peace can ultimately be built only on justice
But you know as well as I do that, somehow, the Israeli government is placed on a pedestal [in the US], and to criticize it is to be immediately dubbed anti-Semitic, as if the Palestinians were not Semitic.
People are scared in this country [the US], to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is powerful - very powerful..…Injustice and oppression will never prevail. Those who are powerful have to remember the litmus test that God gives to the powerful: what is your treatment of the poor, the hungry, the voiceless? And on the basis of that, God passes judgment.”
“The war's seventh day”   By Michael Ben-Yair  (Former Israeli Attorney General from 1993 - 1996
“The Six-Day War We enthusiastically chose to become a colonial society, ignoring international treaties, expropriating lands, transferring settlers from Israel to the occupied territories, engaging in theft and finding justification for all these activities. Passionately desiring to keep the occupied territories, we developed two judicial systems: one - progressive, liberal - in Israel; and the other - cruel, injurious - in the occupied territories. In effect, we established an apartheid regime in the occupied territories immediately following their capture. That oppressive regime exists to this day.
The Six-Day War's seventh day has transformed us from a just society into an unjust one, prepared to expand its control atop another nation's ruins. …
The intifada is the Palestinian people's war of national liberation. Historical processes teach us that no nation is prepared to live under another's domination and that a suppressed people's war of national liberation will inevitably succeed.
Suffice it to recall the killing of little children fleeing for safety; the executions, without trial, of wanted persons who were not on their way to launch a terrorist act; and the encirclements, closures and roadblocks that have turned the lives of millions into a nightmare. Even if all these actions stem from our need to defend ourselves under an occupation's conditions, the occupation's non-existence would render them unnecessary. Thus, a black flag hovers over these actions.
This is a harsh reality that is causing us to lose the moral base of our existence as a free, just society and to jeopardize Israel's long-range survival. Israel's security cannot be based only on the sword; it must rather be based on our principles of moral justice and on peace with our neighbors - those living next door and those living a little further away. An occupation regime undermines those principles of moral justice and prevents the attainment of peace. Thus, that regime endangers Israel's existence.
It is against this background that one must view the refusal of IDF reservist officers and soldiers to serve in the territories. In their eyes, the occupation regime is evil and military service in the occupied territories is evil. In their eyes, military service in the occupied territories, which places soldiers in situations forcing them to commit immoral acts, is evil, and, according to their conscience, they cannot be party to such acts. Thus, their refusal to serve is an act of conscience that is justified and recognized in every democratic regime. History's verdict will be that their refusal was the act that restored our moral backbone.”

Norwegian doctors were willing to speak out about the war crimes inflicted on the residents of Gaza ~ here in the UK Zionists try to suppress the truth, by threats when Physicians for Human Rights were due to speak at major Hospital events. This action shows that those who might protest about the boycott are afraid of free speech  - please take this bold step and start an ACADEMIC boycott NOW.                    
832     Robert Cable  The Zionist state is committed to "just us," not to justice, and to pieces of Palestine, not peace with Palestine.  This unhappy disposition may be countered with international boycotts, divestments, and sanctions (BDS).

840     George Salzman The entire Zionist project to plant a Jewish nation-state in the land of Palestine was illegitimate from its inception, based, as we know, on the premise that the land would be taken from its indigenous population, a conquest to be rationalized on grounds of ancient history and religious dogma, and to be achieved by serving the imperial interests of major Western nations. Some will maintain that if the conquering Zionists should leave greater Palestine, so should all conquering populations, such as the non-Indian inabitants of the Americas. That would be correct, except for the fact that global knowledge of the Israelis’ atrocities was achieved almost instantaneously, and the survivors are alive. The past conquests, whose immediate survivors are long since dead, did not become known soon enough to enough people of good conscience to arouse strong controversy at the time. In contrast, the brutal assaults of the Americans and the Israelis are bitterly current in our minds

If Israel want  real Peace then build all the land they want in their territories.The problem is that Israel do not care about the Palestinian suffering and will not accept reasoning.
