Israeli Apartheid Week CounterPunch: Tells the Facts …

Israeli Apartheid Week has been taking place over the last month at different locations acrossthe world. Over 154 events have taken place in this period fromMontrealtoAucklandtoOxford Universityto Jordan and Palestine itself. Here follows an interview with a Palestinian Law student, Juman A.,who isstudying at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. The following interview is based on Jumans involvement in founding Students for Palestine (Southampton) and being part of the organising group of IAW in the UK.

We have recently seenIsraeli Apartheid Week(IAW) taking place throughout the world for the 10th consecutive year, could you explain to our readers what this event was trying to achieve?

Juman:IAW is a series of events staged to highlight Israels apartheid policies that systematically discriminate against Palestinians. In addition to raising awareness about Israeli Apartheid, the initiative aims to strengthen and engage students and activists in theCampaign for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions(BDS) .IAW and BDS are grassroots civil society movements stemming from the heart of the Palestinian struggle. Both had been initiated and are organised independently and hence receive no support or funding from any government. Even though the BDS campaign is a means of nonviolent resistance against Zionist colonisation and Israeli Apartheid, BDS has not been supported by the Palestinian Authority.

What reaction did you receive from the university and those who attended your events?

Juman: The University of Southampton was non-partisan to the event and do not get involved other than giving us permission, as a society affiliated to the Students Union, to hold the events. In regards to the reaction of people who engaged with us we found an overwhelmingly positive reaction from university students and staff, including academics who were fully recognised that Israeli policies towards Palestinians has created a de facto apartheid. We had a handful of students who either refused to acknowledge the Palestinians rights to struggle against Israel and/or did not agree that Israels discriminatory policies amounted to apartheid. They were invited to attend the events we have organised during the weekand indeed very few turned up to some of ourlectures, such as the talk titled Overcoming Apartheid by Salim Vally, aveteran anti-apartheid activist and South African academic, and Ben White, whois a freelance journalist, author and activist specialising in Palestine and Israeli Apartheid. We are an open society, we welcome people from all walks of life and try to reach out to everyone.

Were you surprised by this negative reaction?

Juman: No. Some people are brought up to believe that certain things are not true or that certain truths are myths. It is a form of political brain-washing. There are people who grew up all their lives believing to be true what they have been taught until they were presented with the facts about the historic colonisation of Palestine and the ongoing apartheid, occupation and ethnic cleansing. In fact, they even, some with whom I have personally met, underwent a total transformation from being defenders and adherents of Israel by virtue of the process of political brain-washing to becoming activists seeking justice for Palestinians and supporting Palestinians in their struggle against Israeli colonisation.

What areyour organisations plans for future events in regards to raising awareness of the occupation?

Juman: We will look to continue to engage with as many people as possible. We do not pretend to offer solutions, but we do two main things. Firstly, we aim to inform those who are unaware of the conflict or who do not understand its true nature, of the facts that exist on the ground in Palestine. Secondly, we aim to get as many people of different levels of activism and awareness involved in the international movement of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions. We will continue reach out to different societies across the University of Southampton and locally; make ourselves visible on campus through leafleting, stalls and future events as well as through BDS campaigns and petitions. One of the events we held during IAW was a day onCelebrating Palestinian Folklore. Through this event we hoped to highlight the rich history that Palestinians have, a history that has been lived in on the lands of Palestine. The denial of this history is one of the crucial aspects of the apartheid and colonisation. Israel attempts to eradicate, distort and take for their own the history of Palestine and the Palestinians. They claimto haveinvented Hummus, the ruins of Palestinian villages destroyed by Zionist and terrorist groups especially between 1946 and 1948 arecovered over byforestsplanted by what is now the Israeli government, football games played in Palestinepre-1948, before Israel even existed ,are nowclaimedby Israel. This is just a small part ofa long list of this coordinated strategy to distort our culture, and destroy our history and connection to the land of Palestine.

What is your personal connection with Palestine?
