This month, almost a year after South Africans succeeded in severing institutional ties between the University of Johannesburg and Ben Gurion University, the University of KwaZulu-Natal cancelled a lecture by a representative of the Israeli state [1]. It is significant that the first major successful implementations of the academic boycott of Israeli institutions should come from South Africa.

La Campaña Palestina por el Boicot Académico y Cultural a Israel (PACBI) recibe a veces críticas de personas que quieren solidarizarse con los palestinos sin respetar las directrices de boicot establecidas por la sociedad civil palestina. Según esas críticas, al establecer directrices demasiado restrictivas y precisas alejamos de la Campaña a sectores liberales. La alternativa que proponen algunos es aceptar que cada uno decida cómo aplica el BDS y permitir la máxima flexibilidad para que la Campaña crezca.

Declaração PACBI

In the Palestinian Campaign for Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), we often face criticism from people who wish to stand in solidarity with Palestinians without respecting the boycott guidelines set by Palestinian civil society.  Setting guidelines, the argument goes, is too restrictive and rigid, alienating the liberal mainstream from the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.  The alternative proposed by some is to let everyone decide how he or she wants to implement BDS, thus allowing for maximum flexibility and growth for the movement.

Two of the most important issues that arise in debating Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS), particularly in Western countries, are (A) whether or not Palestinians should be working with Israelis rather than boycotting them, and (B) whether supporters of BDS should fully boycott Israel or boycott only companies involved in Israel’s occupation and colonial settlements. We hope the discussion below will help shed some light on both issues.

Dos de las cuestiones más relevantes que se plantean en el debate sobre Boicot, Desinversión y Sanciones (BDS), especialmente en los países occidentales, son (A) si los palestinos deberían o no trabajar con los israelíes en lugar de boicotearlos, y (B) si los partidarios del BDS deberían boicotear completamente a Israel o boicotear sólo a las empresas que participan en la ocupación israelí y en sus asentamientos coloniales. Esperamos que la explicación siguiente aclare ambas cuestiones.

The Palestinian academic community was deeply disturbed by the recently revealed plan of collaboration between Cornell University and Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.  The two institutions have won a multi-billion-dollar competition held by the City of New York to establish “a 2 million square foot engineering and applied sciences university campus” on Roosevelt Island, NY [1].  Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at Cornell University have petitioned the City of New York and Cornell University to end this collaboration with an Israeli institution t
