York University's Israel/Palestine Conference: Speaker Political Profiles - Behind the Academic Facade
York University will hold a conference Israel/Palestine: Mapping Models of Statehood and Paths to Peace. The vast majority of the speakers are virulent anti-Israel activists, far removed from an academic approach, who use apartheid rhetoric. There is no evidence of the robust academic critique claimed by the organizers. Their support for a one state solution is the equivalent of calling for the elimination of the State of Israel. Speakers include: Ali Abunimah, Jeff Halper, Naeem Jeenah, Mazin Qumsiyeh, and Marc Ellis.
