University of Haifa and Beit Berl College - Working from Within for a New Holocaust: Dalit Baum (Jihad Feminist)

Apparently, neither Haifa U nor Beit Berl mind having their names linked to the annihilationist efforts of Dalit Baum against Jews. Baum routinely breaks Israeli law by organizing money and supplies to the Hamas in Gaza and in general by calling for the end of the Jewish state. Her self-described "career" is devoted to working in support of "existing divestment campaigns" in the US, as well as helping to build new ones through "education." "Global Exchange" has been part of the "Viva Palestina Tours and Flotilla" campaign to aid Hamas since their inception.

Dalit Baum admits she does not want Israel to exist at all, at least not as any Jewish state. "Palestine," all of Palestine including Haifa and Tel Aviv, is "occupied" by the Jews. In a lecture she gave in San Francisco for the benefit of the pro-terror "Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP)," an ISM group, she explained that while some might think her campaign pertains only to the West Bank and Gaza, she really does not distinguish at all between "occupation" within the state of Israel itself and that in the West Bank when she calls for the end to "occupation." What she really wants is the end to Israel.

"Global Exchange" supports Hamas in its quest to destroy Israel and world Jewry. When Dalit Baum lectured the Berkeley SJP last year she boasted she had cost the Israeli economy billions of dollars through disrupting its ties with Europe. She also boasted about how she interfered with security checkpoints in Israel designed to keep out terrorists who kill Israeli civilians. Her new campaign in the United States seeks to promote the same agenda in America, particularly in US colleges. The officers of Haifa and Beit Berl should remove Dalit Baum from her teaching positions immediately.

Working from Within for a New Holocaust: Prof. Dalit Baum (Jihad Feminist, Haifa University and Beit Berl College)

By Lee Kaplan, www.IsraCampus.org.il
2/6/2011

Israel's university system has already done enough to embarrass itself by promoting the academic fifth column. Nevertheless this newest bit of news out of Haifa University and Beit Berl College shows it can still outdo itself.

Dalit Baum holds a PhD graduate degree in Mathematics. While teaching "gender studies," with a supposed specialization in "global economics," she actually has no credentials in either Gender Studies, nor in Economics, other than posturing her dislike of the males of the species and the Jews of the planet. She has produced no significant books nor research in "Gender Studies," other than boisterously linking her own self-proclaimed homosexuality to what she claims is the "oppression" of Arabs by Jews. She translates these passions into activism disguised as academic work that promotes boycotts of the state of Israel, and she supports the Jewish state's most vile enemies in everything they do, including in terrorism. With the connivance of two Israeli institutions of higher learning, Baum has invented for herself a "new academic field": gender and global economics. She knows nothing at all about economics and could not pass a pop quiz in a freshman economics course.

A recent press release put out by a group calling itself "Global Exchange" describes Baum as a "feminist scholar and teacher in Israel, teaching about militarism and about the global economy from a feminist perspective in the Haifa University and the Beit Berl College. This year she is visiting the U.S. as an activist in residence with Global Exchange, directing a new program titled Economic Activism for Palestine, which aims to support existing divestment campaigns in the U.S. as well as help new ones through education, training, networking and the development of dedicated tools." "Global Exchange" is in fact a part of Code Pink, Medea Benjamin's San Francisco based anti-Israel and anti-US group affiliated with the International Solidarity Movement.

Apparently, neither Haifa U nor Beit Berl mind having their names linked to the annihilationist efforts of Dalit Baum against Jews. Baum routinely breaks Israeli law by organizing money and supplies to the Hamas in Gaza and in general by calling for the end of the Jewish state. Her self-described "career" is devoted to working in support of "existing divestment campaigns" in the US, as well as helping to build new ones through "education." "Global Exchange" has been part of the "Viva Palestina Tours and Flotilla" campaign to aid Hamas since their inception.

Here Baum self-defines: "I'm Dalit Baum, and as a feminist anti-occupation activist teaching gender and the global economy at Haifa University and Beit Berl College in Israel, I found these questions crucial to our work for justice in Palestine. To try to answer them I helped start and have coordinated an activist research initiative called Who Profits from the Occupation within the Coalition of Women for Peace in Israel. During the last four years, Who Profits has become a vital resource for dozens of campaigns around the world, providing information about corporate complicity in the occupation of Palestine."

She continues, "The Economic Activism for Palestine project responds to the July 2005 Unified Call of Palestinian civil society for a wide variety of initiatives such as boycotts, divestment and sanctions until Israel complies with international law and universal principles of human rights. Through our new project, Global Exchange, we will increase its participation in a growing network of civil society initiatives around the world, dedicated to changing corporate policies and making the occupation less profitable. We will support existing campaigns for divestment and corporate accountability nationally, as well as help create new ones through education, training, networking and the development of dedicated tools. I am very excited to be part of this new project and look forward to working with you for justice in Palestine through corporate accountability."

Dalit Baum admits she does not want Israel to exist at all, at least not as any Jewish state. "Palestine," all of Palestine including Haifa and Tel Aviv, is "occupied" by the Jews. In a lecture she gave in San Francisco for the benefit of the pro-terror "Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP)," an ISM group, she explained that while some might think her campaign pertains only to the West Bank and Gaza, she really does not distinguish at all between "occupation" within the state of Israel itself and that in the West Bank when she calls for the end to "occupation." What she really wants is the end to Israel.

In a press release Dalit Baum urges those seeking to promote the boycott of and divestment from Israel to contact her personally, to invite her to speak in their communities and also calls on them to read her article, "Economic Activism: Working Within."

Here's a juicy concluding quote from her article:

"Thus, we can safely say that most of the Israeli economy is involved in the economy of the occupation and, from an economic perspective, the Green Line is long gone. Choosing to call for economic activism against Israeli corporations directly complicit in the Israeli occupation, rather than calling for economic activism against all significant Israeli corporations, should be regarded as a strategic decision, since this distinction is almost only a semantic one. However, tracing the occupation involvement of corporations broadens our perspective, since, as our database shows, many of the culprit companies are international corporations."

"Working from within" is what a fifth column does, and Dalit Baum does it as her full-time profession, in her "Who Profits?" website. She claims now to be on "sabbatical" from the University of Haifa, traveling the US calling to demand that Israel be starved to death economically. It should be noted by American donors that Baum in her article "Working from Within" also sees her moral role as attempting to hurt the US war effort against Al Qaeda in Afghanistan as well:

"As is the case in similar global settings, such as the American military interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq, with the rise of the occupation business, the corporate sector has a higher stake in maintaining the occupation." No doubt Ms. Baum would extend her boycott to those who recently rid the world of Osama Bin Laden. Her sponsors at "Global Exchange" sent $600,000 in aid to the "resistance" that was killing US Soldiers in Fallujah before the capture and removal of Saddam Hussein. It's not hard to figure out whose side Dalit Baum is on in the War on Terror.

"Global Exchange" supports Hamas in its quest to destroy Israel and world Jewry. When Dalit Baum lectured the Berkeley SJP last year she boasted she had cost the Israeli economy billions of dollars through disrupting its ties with Europe. She also boasted about how she interfered with security checkpoints in Israel designed to keep out terrorists who kill Israeli civilians. Her new campaign in the United States seeks to promote the same agenda in America, particularly in US colleges. The officers of Haifa and Beit Berl should remove Dalit Baum from her teaching positions immediately.
