Kamin: Purposeful Discourse

(11/18/13 7:09pm)

You may have noticed the posters around campus in the days leading up to former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s visit last week, which defined him and the state of Israel exclusively by apartheid and war crimes. At the lecture itself, a small group of students staged a protest by falling to the ground and screaming, representing those who died at the hands of Israel’s military during Olmert’s time as prime minister. These students’ actions demonstrated a tremendous frustration with the ongoing occupation, which I share. But I fear that any productive discourse on the need to work toward the rights of Palestinians was lost in theatrics and buried underneath simplistic and misguided slogans such as “Israel: apartheid state.”
