Boycott Calls Against Israel
The American Anthropological Association (AAA) vote on the Boycott of Israeli Academic Institutions

30.05.16

Editorial Note

Tomorrow, May 31st is the last day to vote on the AAA debate whether or not to boycott Israeli academic institutions. A business meeting of the AAA held in Nov 2015 debating two resolutions on Israel and Palestine, one was soft, offering AAA members in "Engaging Israel Palestine: End the Occupation, Oppose Academic Boycott, Support Dialogue," was rejected. The second resolution to boycott Israeli academic institutions was adopted, on which the entire AAA community of ten thousand members is voting.

The resolution resulted from a Task Force mission appointed to investigate the relevance of the Palestinian-Israeli dispute to the AAA, as IAM reported, Task Force members were expected to be neutral and “no one with publicly identified positions on the issue." However, half of its members, three of six, were publicly identified as supporting the Palestinian narrative prior to the mission trip. Also, those who were chosen to help the Task Force during their trip to the area were also publicly identified with the Palestinian narrative. No wonder therefore, the report was biased against Israel and full of flaws.

This is not really surprising, those who are pushing for the boycott are mostly of Arab origin, as can be seen from the list of signatures below.

Surprisingly, however, the success of Arab influence on American campuses against Israel which originates from the vast investments by wealthy Arab states investing en mass of petrodollars in American higher education in the last few decades, beginning with the plea of the late professor Edward Said. The 9/11 attack did not change things in this respect.  

Throughout the years the figures of Arab investments in Western campuses have gone up and so is the hostility toward Israel. With the Arab money and the wide popularity of the neo-Marxist, critical paradigm in the social science, such influence on campuses can be recognized in the number of votes to boycott Israel and the AAA is one example of it, whether successful or not.






AAA Business Meeting

Kim Baker
The 114th AAA Business Meeting was called to order by President Monica Heller on November 20, 2015 at 6:25 pm in the Mile High Ballroom 2 & 3 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO.


(this is the second part of the business report)

The following resolution: Engaging Israel Palestine: End the Occupation, Oppose Academic Boycott, Support Dialogue (resolution #1) was presented.
Whereas, Human rights, the quest for justice, and a hope for a viable future for Israelis, Palestinians, and the broader Middle East  is a concern for many;
Whereas, Israel’s occupation since 1967 of Palestinian territories is an impediment to peace;
Whereas, The need for a speedy recovery and reconstruction of the Gaza strip following the devastation inflicted on it by Israel in 2014 is as urgent as ever;
Whereas, Resolution of the tragedy of Palestinian refugees remains a prerequisite for reconciliation in the region;
Whereas, Moderate segments in Israeli and Palestinian society, including academics, continue to have a crucial role in the difficult struggle for peace; and
Whereas,  Associating academics with the political regimes in which they operate contradicts anthropology’s most enduring contribution to intellectual and political sensibilities, namely its ability to recognize and articulate nuance, deal with social and cultural complexity, and avoid essentialization; now, therefore, be it
 
Resolved, That the AAA calls upon the Israeli government to follow UN resolutions and adhere to the initiatives of many in the international community by:
  • Finding a way to end the siege of Gaza and cooperate with the Palestinian leadership, Egypt, and the international community in a genuine effort to reconstruct the Gaza strip after the damages inflicted on it in 2014, while safeguarding security for Israelis;
  • Negotiating in good faith with the Palestinians towards a just and final settlement of the conflict, based on Israeli withdrawal from the territories occupied in 1967;
  • Recognizing the rights of Palestinian and Bedouin citizens of Israel to full equality, and doing everything necessary to fulfill this right;
  • Promoting and implementing a spectrum of dignified, just, and effective solutions to the tragedy of Palestinian
Resolved, That the AAA calls on anthropologists and academics to resist conflating the activities of academics with the policies and actions of their governments, and to refrain from initiatives to boycott universities as a means of applying pressure on political regimes and governments everywhere, Israel no exception.
Resolved, That the AAA urges its members and anthropologists everywhere to strengthen anthropological engagement with Palestine and Israel by focusing research, debate, and teaching in and about the region; by mobilizing anthropological insight, sensitivity to histories and heritages and moral integrity in the service of renewed dialogue between willing parties on either side; and by contributing to ongoing and future efforts to terminate the occupation and nudge reluctant leaders towards peace; and
Resolved, That to enhance this engagement, the AAA membership instructs the Executive Committee to allocate 1% of its annual expenditure to Scholarly Endeavors in Conflict Areas, with an initial emphasis on Israel and Palestine. These endeavors will include grants and scholarships for budding anthropologists, funding of anthropological courses, seminars, workshops and study programs, both locally and abroad, and developing curricula and research projects that focus on understanding conflict generally and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in particular.
 
After the resolution was seconded, members were invited to speak into one of the two microphones that were made available for this purpose.  After discussion from both sides, votes were cast by paper ballot. Votes were counted and the president read the results which were 196 members voting in favor of the resolution and 1173 voting against the motion, thus this resolution was defeated.
 

Resolution 2 was then presented: Resolution to Boycott Israeli Academic Institutions

Whereas, For decades, despite condemnation by the United Nations and other international bodies, the Israeli state has denied Palestinians — including scholars and students — their fundamental rights of freedom, equality, and self-determination through ethnic cleansing, colonization, discrimination, and military occupation;
Whereas, The United States plays a decisive role in enabling Israel’s systematic violations of Palestinians’ basic rights under international law, and U.S. academic institutions facilitate Israeli academic institutions’ complicity by continuing to maintain close, extensive and privileged ties with them; and whereas the AAA is a leading U.S.-based academic association;
Whereas, Anthropological frameworks and methods, ethnographic and archaeological, are actively used by the Israeli state to further occupation and colonization; and whereas the AAA has committed in its Statement of Purpose to “Take action on behalf of the entire profession” and “Promote the… constant improvement of professional standards in anthropology;”
Whereas, The AAA’s 1999 Declaration on Anthropology and Human Rights states, “Anthropology as a profession is committed to the promotion and protection of the right of people and peoples everywhere to the full realization of their humanity” and “the AAA has an ethical responsibility to protest and oppose… deprivation;” and whereas the AAA has historically upheld those rights, including the right to education and academic freedom, for peoples around the world;
Whereas, Israel has obstructed Palestinians’ right to education by destroying Palestinian universities and schools in military strikes; periodically raiding and forcing those institutions to close; preventing Palestinian anthropologists from freely studying their own society; preventing Palestinian archaeologists from accessing, studying, stewarding, or protecting their own cultural heritage; and restricting Palestinians’ movement which limits their ability to attend and work at universities, travel to conferences, and study abroad;
Whereas, The Israeli state and universities systematically deny Palestinian students in Israeli educational institutions rights and resources equal to their Jewish Israeli counterparts;
Whereas, Israeli scholars and students who criticize Israeli state policies and who support the academic boycott of Israeli institutions do so under threat of sanction;
Whereas, Israel routinely harasses and imposes severe restrictions on foreign academics seeking to attend conferences or conduct research in the occupied Palestinian territories, as well as on scholars of Palestinian origin who wish to travel to Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories;
Whereas, Israeli academic institutions have been directly and indirectly complicit in the Israeli state’s systematic maintenance of the occupation and denial of basic rights to Palestinians, by providing planning, policy, and technological expertise for furthering Palestinian dispossession; and
Whereas, The vast majority of Palestinian civil society organizations, including the Palestinian Federation of Unions of University Professors, have called for an international boycott of Israeli academic institutions as part of the broader boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement; now, therefore be it
 
Resolved, That the AAA as an Association endorses and will honor this call from Palestinian civil society to boycott Israeli academic institutions until such time as these institutions end their complicity in violating Palestinian rights as stipulated in international law; and
Resolved, That the AAA leadership, in accord with the governance procedures of the Association’s bylaws, is charged with implementing this boycott and determining how to do so with reference to both (a) the Association’s own mission, and (b) the attached appendix; and
Resolved, That this boycott pertains to Israeli academic institutions only and not to individual scholars, and also that individual anthropologists are free to determine whether and how they will apply the boycott in their own professional practice; and
Resolved, That in implementing this boycott, the AAA will support the rights of students and scholars everywhere to engage in research and public speaking about Israel/Palestine and in support of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.
After the resolution was seconded, members were again offered the opportunity to speak to the motion. After discussion, an amendment to the resolution was presented. A vote was taken on whether to include this addition to the resolution on the floor. It was defeated. Discussion on the original resolution continued and after a time the question was called, meaning debate was stopped and a vote took place. The voting proceeded as it had done for the first resolution. After the count was completed the vote was 1040 yes votes to 136 no votes.  This means that Resolution #2 will be placed on the spring ballot for all members to vote upon.
A new motion was presented under New Business calling for every AAA Publication  available online be made available open access to every IP address in the greater Middle East. This was defeated on a procedural vote as 2/3 of the members present would have needed to agree to consider the motion and this did not occur. However, the following motion was presented and members did agree for it to be considered.
The American Anthropological Association will:
  • Divest from all corporations which profit from the violation of Palestinian human rights and the illegal occupation by Israel of Palestinian territory.
  • Advocate that all its affiliated academic institutions follow suit.
  • Call on the US Government to cease supply any military and economic aid to Israel which is used directly or indirectly to support the occupation and to violate Palestinian human rights.
After the motion was seconded, the vote was taken. As it was voted in the affirmative, the motion was adopted. Since this was a motion from the floor, it will be forwarded to the AAA Executive Board as advisory.

APPENDIX TO AMERICAN ANTHROPOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION RESOLUTION TO BOYCOTT ISRAELI ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS
Background for the Resolution
For decades, Israel’s colonization of Palestine and the accompanying widespread and systematic abuses it has committed have been a matter of public record, extensively documented by the United Nations and leading human rights organizations. These have included violations of academic freedom and the right to education. Israeli academic institutions are party to these abuses.
An academic boycott has an important role to play in pressuring Israel to end these abuses. Israel stands apart from other states that routinely engage in mass human rights abuses due to the level of support it receives from the United States. At the governmental level, Israel is the leading recipient — in absolute and per capita terms — of official U.S. aid, much of which goes to purchase weapons used to oppress, maim, and kill Palestinians. More than with any other country, the U.S. regularly thwarts any concerted action at the United Nations to curb Israel’s abuses, in the face of near-universal condemnation by the international community. Furthermore, Israel enjoys extensive ties with academic and cultural institutions in the U.S. As a result, Israel depends on the U.S. not only for diplomatic and military aid, but also for its sense of legitimacy in the face of international condemnation.
The academic boycott is an act of protest against Israel’s violations and an act of solidarity with our Palestinian colleagues. It is also a rejection of the support that the U.S. government provides Israel, enabling it to act with impunity. Israel’s dependence on the U.S. makes it vulnerable to popular pressure, such as boycotts, from U.S. organizations. Boycott functions by making complicity with the status quo burdensome for Israeli academic institutions. It provides a concrete and proven way that scholars can participate in amplifying that pressure. The academic boycott has also already prompted conversation and learning among many in the United States, Israel/Palestine, and elsewhere. The extraordinary efforts of the Israeli state and organizations opposed to criticism of Israel to counteract the boycott are signs that it is effective.  
As a discipline with origins inextricably tied to the history of colonialism, anthropologists are well-placed to recognize and speak out against colonial practices, especially when they are supported by our government and within our society. The AAA has taken strong stances against such violations of rights in the past, via resolutions as well as boycotts. Boycotts have been effective in similar struggles for liberation and justice, including in apartheid South Africa. This boycott is called for by over 170 Palestinian civil society organizations, including all Palestinian universities. Several other U.S.-based academic associations have endorsed the boycott, including the American Studies Association, the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association, the Association of Asian American Studies, the Critical Ethnic Studies Association, the Peace and Justice Studies Association, and the Association for Humanist Sociology. All of these associations remain perfectly healthy – financially, legally, and in terms of membership numbers – after doing so. The National Association of Chicana and Chicano Studies passed a boycott resolution at their April 2015 conference, and discussion of the boycott continues at the National Women’s Studies Association, the Modern Languages Association, and elsewhere.
Implementation of the Boycott
This resolution calls for the AAA — as an Association — to implement an academic boycott of Israeli institutionsIf the boycott is adopted, the AAA will refrain from any formal collaborations or other relationships with Israeli academic institutions, including the Israeli Anthropological Association. There are no such relationships at this time, so adopting the boycott would formalize the current status quo in this regard.
The resolution applies to academic institutions only. Israeli scholars will still be welcome to participate in AAA meetings, use funds from their institutions to attend the meetings, publish in AAA journals, and take part in other AAA activities in their individual capacities. The boycott does not preclude communication and collaboration with individual Israeli scholars. Indeed, one of its goals is to encourage dialogue about human and academic rights in Israel/Palestine grounded in a set of shared principles of justice.
This resolution does not impose any requirements on AAA members acting in their individual capacities. Under this resolution, individual members will remain free to make their own decisions about whether or not to support the boycott in their own professional practice, such as whether to accept Israeli grants, attend conferences in Israel, or publish in Israeli journals.
The boycott would affect Israeli institutions in the following ways: those institutions would not be able to be listed in AnthroGuide, advertise in AAA venues, or participate in the AAA Departmental Services Program (DSP), the Career Center, or the Graduate School Fair. In addition, the boycott precludes granting permission to copy and reprint articles from AAA publications to journals and publications based at Israeli institutions.
The boycott may also preclude the AAA from selling Anthrosource access to Israeli institutions. However, individual AAA members from Israel would still have access to Anthrosource through their personal membership. Permanent residents of Israel qualify for AAA membership at the rate for “Less Developed Countries,” which is $US 30 per year. This is the same rate that applies to Palestinians in Israel/Palestine as well as in the broader Middle East/North Africa region.
We anticipate that endorsing the boycott will have minimal financial ramifications for the AAA. Currently, there are no Israeli institutional members of the DSP, so there will be no financial losses in that regard. Other academic associations that have adopted the boycott have seen their membership numbers increase and none of those associations have sustained significant legal costs. If the boycott is adopted, the AAA leadership would be entrusted to determine how best to proceed in order to ensure its implementation to the greatest extent possible while maintaining the financial viability of the Association.
