U Penn BDS Conference on How to Dismantle Israel

By David Roberts, Jan 30, 2012 —

The University of Pennsylvania will be breaking all precedents about legitimizing and mainstreaming anti-Israel activism on prominent college campuses this week — and crossing a new red line — by hosting a conference, called PennBDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions), which openly states that its intention is to train people and organize communities to try to dismantle Israel economically — and, if conference participant Omar Barghouti’s book, "BDS: Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions," is any indication, otherwise, as well. The conference is scheduled to take place Feb. 3-5.

A Google search of "PennBDS Conference" yields over 1000 entries, including a apologistic article from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency [JTA] saying that Penn is trying to "distance" itself from the conference, and that Penn’s President, Amy Gutmann says she, "does not support the conference…or support its aims."

Then why are they enabling it?. . . .
