Anti-Israel Petitions Signed by Israeli Academics

Matar and Algazi support the boycott of Israel in Letter of 500 against the prohibition of the conference "Israel: an apartheid state?"

We would hereby like to express our dismay at your decision to withdraw permission you had previously given to the symposium "New approaches sociological, historical and legal to call for an international boycott Israel: an apartheid state? ", to be held on 27 and 28 February next at your institution.

This decision seems particularly serious because it threatens free speech and academic freedom. The reasons that you call, including the risk of "disturbing public order", we do not seem very convincing in terms of the implications of your decision.

Among the signatories
Anat Matar (Dept. of Philosophy, Tel Aviv University),
Gadi Algazi (Historian, Tel Aviv)

Letter of 500 against the prohibition of the conference "Israel: an apartheid state?"

By Guests Mediapart
February 19, 2012

Following the ban of the conference held in Paris 8, entitled "Israel: an apartheid state?" Mediapart publishes a letter from a collective of one hundred researchers and personalities, including Etienne Balibar, Jacques Rancière, Olivier Roy Francois Burgat, Sylvie Tissot, Alain Bertho, Roshdi Rashed, Judith Butler or Luc Boltanski.Since going online, four hundred new signatories joined in this call, including Noam Chomsky, John Salem, Enzo Traverso, Isabelle Garo, Stathis Kouvélakis, Michel Husson, etc..

Attention Binczak Pascal, President of the University of Paris 8

Mr. President,

We would hereby like to express our dismay at your decision to withdraw permission you had previously given to the symposium "New approaches sociological, historical and legal to call for an international boycott Israel: an apartheid state? ", to be held on 27 and 28 February next at your institution.

This decision seems particularly serious because it threatens free speech and academic freedom. The reasons that you call, including the risk of "disturbing public order", we do not seem very convincing in terms of the implications of your decision.

Indeed, we have learned that the University management had knowledge of the conference program and speakers list before giving its consent, and the Fund for Solidarity and Development Initiatives College was even awarded a grant of 2500 euros to the initiative.

It is therefore due to pressure or threats from outside you have decided to backtrack. This seems particularly worrying: University Must submit to political pressure, of whatever nature? Is it not precisely the function of allowing that academic freedom can be exercised in the best conditions?

We do not necessarily share the views and objectives of the symposium on 27 and 28 February. But the essential is not there. What is at stake is indeed the right to debate in public space, namely in this symbolic place that is the University, works and opinions that deserve to be heard and that are objectionable in any way a legal standpoint.

The LIRA does not want certain positions are defended is one thing. An academic institution gives in to pressure and threats is another. We imagine a conference on Tibet declared invalid because of formal or informal representatives of the Chinese government would threaten to disrupt the event?

Mr. President, it is not too late to reconsider your decision. While this would be to your credit back to your original position allowing the conference to take place in your establishment, each measuring the precious heritage, and to refuse to yield to the injunctions of the opponents of freedom of expression.
