SciencesPo rolls out the red carpet to the Israeli apartheid
The Israeli Apartheid Week, that aims to advocate against the Israeli Apartheid policies on campus world wide, is once again tried to be shut down in France. The Mars 9, the Presidency of Paris 8 Saint-Denis tried to prevent the conference on the BDS campaign, that mobilizes the international civil society to end the Israeli expan-sionist-ic policy. Paris 1 Sorbonne refuses to host too a conference that condemn the Israeli criminal policy. The censorship of the conference, featuring Mandela former appointee, has been as always justify by spurious administrative excuses.
While any radical criticisms againt the israeli policies are threatened to be censored in every french universities, SciencesPo hosts a propaganda conference that, under the guize of progressive themes, normalizes the criminal policies of the State of Israel against the Palestinians.
In deed, Monday March the 30th, the student association « Paris Tel aviv » organized a conference on « Being a woman in Israel ». Among the speaker, Michal Philosoph, spokesperson of the Israeli embassy in France, who declared on the radio RMC November 19 2014 the colonization, illagale according to international laws, is « the outcome of the natural growing » of the settlements.
Bar Ben Yaacov is representative of the Jewish Agency, zionist organization that acttively promote the jewish immigration to israel, while millions of Palestinians living in refugees camps are still forbidden to return to their home land. She is also a former officer of the IDF, the « most moral army in the world », this army responsible of the death of more than 2100 people, 70% civilians according to the UN, last summer attack on Gaza.
If this was not enough already, Paris Tel Aviv, misleadingly a cultural association, invites Muriel Touaty, president of the Association France du Technion, that collaborates with the military-industrial complex, responsible of killing Palestinians civilians. This conference, with every others actions of Paris Tel Aviv, is not only aiming to normalize the criminal policy of the State of Israel, it also invites its official representatives, including former military officer. Adding insult to injury, it does this under the guize of the progressive subject that are women rights.
Against the normalization of the Israeli Apartheid State, we demands the cancellation of the conference, that offers a scandalous forum to officials representatives of a rogue State. If this was cancelled, we are calling for
