Dr. Dalit Baum
Dr. Dalit Baum is a professor of gender studies and world economy at Haifa University and Beit Berl College. Dr. Dalit Baum has also taught at the University of California at San Diego, the University of California at Santa Cruz, and at the University of California at Berkeley. Although she is trained in the field of mathematics, she usually teaches in the field of women’s studies, the global economy, and activism. We could not find any evidence for the existence of academic books by Dr. Dalit Baum.
Dr. Dalit Baum is active in a series of radical anti-Israel groups. For starters, she is active in the International Solidarity Movement. According to NGO Monitor, the International Solidarity Movement’s co-founders support both violent and non-violent acts of “Palestinian resistance” and believe that it is “noble” to carry out suicide bombings. ISM played a prominent role in the Free Gaza flotilla, which attempted to break the Israeli naval blockade on Gaza and engaged in violent confrontation with Israel. ISM has been responsible for endangering the lives of many foreign nationals, amongst them Rachel Corrie and Tom Hurndall, who were both killed while participating in ISM activities. ISM has been active in violent demonstrations against the Security Barrier in the West Bank and attempted to help terrorists take refuge in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem in 2002. In 2003, it was founded that the terrorists who attacked the Mike’s Place Bar in Tel Aviv had connections with ISM and utilized links with ISM activists to cover their treks. In March 2003, a senior Islamic Jihad terrorist was arrested while hiding in ISM’s Jenin Office and being aided by two ISM activists.
But unfortunately, ISM is not the only extremist group that Dr. Dalit Baum is active in. In fact, Dr. Baum helped create the group Black Laundry, which calls for “Israeli apartheid” to be eliminated. Black Laundry describes itself as “a direct action group of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender, and others against the occupation.” Its slogan is “transgender, not transfer.” Interestingly, CLAF, the main lesbian feminist organization in Israel, refuses to have any thing to do with them. Black Laundry, while constantly condemning Israel for mistreating homosexuals and protesting Israel’s supposed mistreatment of Palestinians, has never bothered to go to the PA to protest the mistreatment of homosexuals there, where the oppression of homosexuals is far more severe than any thing that happens inside Israel or thanks to Israel.
Black Laundry’s main contributor is Coalition of Women for Peace, where Dr. Baum is the project coordinator of “who profits from the occupation.” According to NGO Monitor, Coalition of Women for Peace is committed to the “struggle to end the occupation,” refers to the Security Barrier as an “apartheid wall,” celebrated Nakba Day on Israel’s Independence Day, supports the BDS movement, supports Refusniks, and has lobbied the British government to “prosecute Israeli war criminals.” As part of her work with Coalition of Women for Peace, Dr. Baum spoke at the London School of Economics at a seminar entitled “the occupation of Palestine: who profits and who doesn’t” in 2009. The talk was hosted by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
Dr. Baum is also active in Anarchists against the Wall, “a direct action group” that was established in response to Israel’s construction of the security barrier on “Palestinian land occupied in the West Bank.” The Anarchists “works in cooperation with Palestinians in a joint popular struggle against the occupation.” Since its formation, Anarchists against the Wall has “participated in hundreds of demonstrations and direct actions against the wall specifically, and the occupation generally, all over the West Bank.”
In November 2010, Dr. Dalit Baum presented to the Russell Tribunal on Palestine that G4S is aiding her country in “war crimes” by providing equipment for “checkpoints, prisons, and illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.” Also in November 2010, she gave a lecture that promoted flotillas, boycotts, demonstrations, and other direct actions to support the Palestinian “struggle.” On February 11, 2010, Dr. Baum gave a lecture at the University of California at Berkeley entitled “who profits from the occupation? Holding cooperation’s accountable.” And right in the middle of the Gaza War, Dr. Dalit Baum tried to illegally enter Gaza to show solidarity to the people there with a group from Physicians for Human Rights-Israel.
