Action Alert: Support American Studies Association against Zionist attacks

The American Studies Association (ASA), which voted on Dec. 16, 2013, to endorse the Association’s participation in a boycott of Israeli academic institution, has been coming under harsh attack. The American Muslims for Palestine is calling upon our supporters to take action and stand in solidarity with the ASA by signing a petition of support.

The ASA, which is comprised of academic scholars, attracted 1252 voters, the largest number of participants in such a referendum in the history of the organization. Sixty-six percent of voters endorsed the resolution. By doing so, the ASA’s members sent a message that it stands in full solidarity with the world-wide BDS movement initiated and led by Palestinian civil society, according to the Palestinian Campaign for the Cultural and Academic Boycott of Israel (PACBI).

We must not stand by idly. We must stand in solidarity with these courageous individuals who chose to stand for academic freedom and justice for Palestinians in the face of harsh criticism and at a time when college campuses are coming under increased attack for lectures, activities and student groups, which are critical of Israeli policies that contravene international law and deprive Palestinians of their basic human rights.

Read the letter of support.

Sign the petition.
