"UM-D Student government approves divestment resolution"

The University of Michigan—Dearborn's student government body passed a resolution on Tuesday calling for investigation into ethical implications of University investments in companies that do business in Israel.

The measure came after more than a week of events on campus that discussed human rights issues in the occupied Palestinian territories and efforts to broaden boycott and divestment movements modeled after those once used to fight South African apartheid.

The body passed similar resolutions calling for divestment from the Israeli occupation in 2005 and 2006, but failed to do so again over the last few years, meeting opposition from members who said the wider student population didn't know enough about the issue, and that a divestment effort could be perceived as anti-Semitic.

Speaker of the student Senate Rashid Baydoun said student groups like the Arab Student Union and Students for Socially Responsible Investing with the help of community groups like Jewish Voice for Peace made a special effort this year to hold a series of informative events advocating for divestment.

"We had people who opposed it last year that voted on it yesterday," Baydoun said.

The resolution cites several U.N. resolutions, the Fourth Geneva Convention and a University of Michigan Regent policy that states "If the Regents shall determine that a particular issue involves serious moral or ethical questions which are of concern to many members of the University community, an advisory committee consisting of members of the University Senate, students, administration and alumni will be appointed to gather information and formulate recommendations for the Regents' consideration.

The resolution calls for the formation of such an advisory committee.

"Any University investments in entities contributing to human rights violations by either Israelis or Palestinians is inappropriate," the document states, naming several companies in which it says the University is known to have millions in investments, including Boeing, Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics.

"... on behalf of the students at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, we will urge this committee to recommend immediate divestment from companies that are directly involved in the ongoing illegal occupation, because we deem these investments to be profoundly unethical and in direct conflict with the mission of this University," the resolution reads.

Baydoun said student government and several student groups plan to follow through with the effort by gathering petition signatures to present to the Board of Regents.

He said the movement has gained support from several faculty members.

Philosophy professor David Skrbina, who has encouraged the effort and advised the students, said passage of the resolution was an impressive and meaningful achievement.

"This is an important accomplishment, given how few student bodies around the country have been able to pass a definitive statement on the injustices in Israel/Palestine," he said. "This reaffirms the student resolutions from 2005 and 2006, with a focus on the practical next step, which is to form an investigatory committee.

Skrbina said a campus divestment petition currently has 1,500 student signatures and 120 faculty signatures.

"There will be requests for follow-up meetings with Chancellor Dan Little, and the U-M Regents in Ann Arbor, to discuss how to proceed," he said.

Similar efforts on the university's Ann Arbor campus have not been successful, facing fierce opposition stemming from perceptions of anti-Semitism.


Vocal Palestine protests confront Israeli spokesmen on campuses

by Clayton Swisher
Feb. 11, 2010

Published on, at:

Pro-Palestinian university students appear to be growing more vocal and organized with their frustrations. And it's a phenomena that seems to have caught the Israelis off guard.

The Israelis have a lot of experience dealing with asymmetrical warfare. But they're not exactly used to its latest manifestation, which could be coming to a college campus near you.

Committed activists let their frustrations be heard on Monday in two separate lectures delivered by senior Israeli diplomats.

While the videos go viral among students, its watching the tactics used at these events that must be leaving Israel unnerved.

Consider the way in which a mockery was made of Israel's Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren, who presented at the University of California at Irvine.

The New York-born former academic had nary a minute to get into his talking points when he himself was taken to school by angry students, at least one of whom shouted "propagating murder is not an expression of free speech!"

The heckling made it impossible for Oren to carry on, and persisted in spite of pleas and threats by audience members and promises of arrest by the rattled college rector.

Most of Oren's detractors made reference to Israel's actions during the 2009 Gaza War.

Israel is under heavy strain by UN officials and international rights organizations to be held accountable for crimes of war during the 17-day Israeli assault on Gaza. Some from academia have defended Israel from the charges, including Harvard's Alan Dershowitz, who went so far as to attack UN Investigator Richard Goldstone with a provocative Hebrew word that translates as "traitor to the Jewish people".

Off guard?

But by in large, what is making me take notice is how pro-Palestinian students seem to be growing more vocal and organized with their frustrations.

It's a phenomena that seems to have caught the Israelis off guard. When Oren's appeal for Middle East-like hospitality failed, Oren jousted: "This is not London or Tehran!"

He must have been clairvoyant. Across the Pond at Oxford Union on that same day, it was not exactly going swimmingly for Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon, trying also to lay down a rote defense of Israel.

Students there also used timed interruptions, and apparently racist invectives, to upset their Israeli guest.

Unlike Saudi Arabia's Prince Turki, these students were more interested in shaking fists at Ayalon than afterwards shaking hands.

The implications of this week's Israeli diplo-heckling are uncertain. Aside from threatened legal action by Ayalon, stiffer heckling penalties will likely be imposed, but can only go so far. These guys are professional and, in Ayalon's case, should know from experience how to handle themselves.

Much as some might hope, campus gumshoes are unlikely to bar students from attending based on their affiliations, religion, or appearance, lest they abandon the pluralistic values which underpin most institutions and set themselves up for lawsuits.

Instead organizers will have to find other ways to keep this youthful equalizer at bay, which will probably mean skipping universities with large pro-Palestinian activist bodies. And that seems to be a widening community.

NOTE: Middle East passions also reached my Alma Mater last month where the same exact tactics were used to frustrate a presentation by U.S. CENTCOM Commander General David Petraeus.

Last October, Ehud Olmert, the former Israeli prime minister, also faced a tough crowd despite steps taken by the university.

Scandal at Ann Arbor City Council:

Why Did Council appoint Friend of the Israel Defense Forces as Human Rights Commissioner?

The City Council meeting can be viewed on-line at:

For the third time, the Ann Arbor City Council was forced to endure questions about why it appointed Neal Elyakin, a Friend of the Israel Defense Forces, to the Ann Arbor Human Rights Commission.

Under questioning, the entire City Council, and the Mayor, were dead silent.

That was the Ann Arbor, Michigan City Council on February 16, 2010.

"Appointing a Friend of the Israel Defense Forces to the Ann Arbor Human Rights Commission (AAHRC) is like spitting in the face of humanity!"

"What is Ann Arbor City Council saying to half a million Michigan Arabs and Muslims?"

Appointing a Friend of the Israel Defense Forces to the Ann Arbor Human Rights Commission (AAHRC) is like spitting in the face of humanity!

When I first arrived in AA, I was thrilled to know that the city had a Human Rights Commission which had unanimously passed a resolution to "end U.S. Military Support for Israel” (2003).

Since then, Israel has committed repeated crimes against humanity and the environment (Israel killed 1300 Lebanese in 2006; and killed 1400 Palestinians in Gaza last year, while Palestinians killed 3 Israelis). Such acts have finally culminated in Amnesty International calling Israel a war criminal.

However, in Ann Arbor, Neal Elyakin, a Friend of the Israel Defense Forces, has been appointed to the Human Rights Commission by the City Council. What is Ann Arbor City Council really saying, to half a million Michigan Arabs and Muslims?

Israel and the U.S. have killed millions of Muslims in the last decade alone. The U.S. and Israel are militarily occupying over 50 million Arabs and Muslims. More U.S./Israeli wars will only destroy life. Boycotting Israel is saying NO to global militarism; and voting for a world without war.


1 Comment:

That is the question:

What is Ann Arbor City Council really saying to half a million Michigan Arabs and Muslims?

The same Human Rights Commission used to demand sanctions against Israel, and inspired other Ann Arborites to do the same:

Now look what the City Council has done to the Human Rights Commission.

It's unbelievable that they would appoint a Friend of the Israel Defense Forces to sit on it. What is their explanation?

"Arms Divestment and Cessation of U.S. Military Aid to Israel"

A resolution of the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice and its MiddleEast Task Force

Adopted May 13, 2003

As persons of faith who believe in the equal worth and dignity of all people, we are distressed that Israelis and Palestinians have become locked in an escalating cycle of violence. We categorically condemn the taking of any life, Israeli or Palestinian. We are convinced that only the end of the Israeli occupation and the establishment of a geographically and economically viable independent Palestinian state can bring peace to the Middle East and achieve the goal of two nation-states -- Israel andPalestine -- living peaceably side-by-side, with equality and security, possibly in a confederation.

We have long been dismayed by threats to the existence of Israel. We areequally dismayed by the continual military occupation and virtual colonization of Palestinian territory by Israeli armed forces and settlers,the human rights abuses against Palestinians, and the destruction of the Palestinian economy. Devastation of the physical and social infrastructure in the West Bank and Gaza -- including the forcible eviction from anddemolition of homes -- does not quell terrorism. It engenders more.

Such actions fuel deeper hatred of Israel in surrounding countries, while causing a major humanitarian disaster among Palestinians. And they leave Palestinians continually vulnerable to expulsion from the land in which they have been deeply rooted for generations. U.S. weapons and military funding are being used in these violations of human rights andinternational agreements. Americans of conscience must protest.

We do not have faith that governments alone will take the necessary actions to bring about a change in the Israeli government policies described above. We therefore believe that nonviolent civilian action is needed, aiming tolimit the present intense funding of Israeli military activities.

Accordingly, we will work with those groups who are calling on the governing bodies of our religious institutions, the City of Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan, and our fellow citizens

* to use their influence to encourage the United States government to end its complicity in these violations of human rights by suspending it smilitary aid and arms sales to Israel, and

* to divest themselves from all companies that manufacture or sell arms and other military hardware to Israel, in order to bring about:

* Israel's compliance with United Nations Resolution 242, which calls for "the withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from territories occupied in therecent (1967) conflict";

* Israel's compliance with the United Nations Committee Against TortureNov. 2001 Report (paragraph 53), which recommends that Israel's use of "thecrime of torture and other acts of cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment orpunishment" must be prevented;

* Israel's cessation of settlement building and expansion, and itsvacating of existing settlements in the Occupied Territories in compliancewith the Fourth Geneva Convention, which states "The Occupying Power shallnot deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies." (Article 49, paragraph 6, 1949);

* Israel's acknowledgment of the applicability of United NationsResolution 194 (1948) with respect to the rights of refugees, andacceptance that refugees should either be permitted to return to theirhomes and property or be justly compensated for their losses.

This statement is derived from multiple sources, including severaluniversity divestment petitions; and from members of the Middle East TaskForce of the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice and thePalestine-Israel Action Group of Ann Arbor Friends Meeting.


"Call for Peace in the Middle East"

by "Ann Arbor Area Committee for Peace", which later changed its name to "Michigan Peaceworks")--

[This Resolution calls for an end to U.S. military aid to Israel until the Occupation ends and the settlements are dismantled]

See below:

Preamble: The Ann Arbor Area Committee for Peace recognizes that theconflict in Palestine/Israel is an issue of great concern in our community,around which emotions often outweigh objectivity.

We do not wish to contribute to the discord, but rather to unify people around common goalsof nonviolence and fairness. Our organization formed shortly after 9-11-01 to address issues of peace, civil liberties, and civil rights-particularly how these issues would be affected by the U.S. government military response to the 9-11 attacks. We consider a peaceful resolution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict to be an important element in curtailing the cycle of violence worldwide.

Statement: Over the past two years, we have witnessed in grief and anguishthe appalling destruction resulting from the spiral of violence in theMiddle East. Violence will only beget further violence. We condemn in the strongest terms the practices that bring about the deaths of innocent people and the destruction of communities.

Fortunately, there are many who work for peaceful resolution of theconflict. These people and organizations give hope that future generationsof Israelis and Palestinians can live normal, secure lives, in peace witheach other. We support the Israeli and Palestinian peacemakers, including the Bereaved Families for Peace, who call on their fellow citizens torenounce violence. We support the Israeli soldiers who refuse to serve inthe occupied territories. We support those from Israel and other countrieswho work with Palestinians to rebuild destroyed homes. We support the efforts of those states and organizations that have made proposals for a just peace, including the member states of the Arab League, which hascalled for normalization of relations with Israel in exchange for creationof a Palestinian state and a complete Israeli withdrawal from the occupied territories of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem.

In solidarity with all those working for peace in the Middle East, we call for the following:

* An immediate end to the Israeli Occupation of the West Bank, Gaza,and East Jerusalem;

* An immediate end to the violence on both sides, recognizing violenceas including Occupation, military incursions, and suicide bombings;

* A full evacuation of all settlements with the exception of minornegotiated border adjustments;

* A just settlement for the refugees who have been forced by war toleave homes in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza;

* Establishment of the state of Palestine side by side with the stateof Israel with the boundaries established by UN Resolution 242;

* Social and economic justice and full legal rights for all citizens of both states;

* A major international effort to assist the reconstruction of Palestine;

* An end to U.S. military aid to Israel until the Occupation ends and the settlements are dismantled;

* Negotiations towards arms control and disarmament of weapons of massdestruction for the entire region;

* Recognition of and normalization of relations with Israel by all thecountries of the Middle East.

Call to divest from Israeli Occupation, by Howard University's faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences

"Prominent call for divestment at Howard"

by: Will Youmans - The Arab American News

17th, March 2007

Activists calling for ending financial support for Israel welcomed a victory at a university in Washington, DC. The faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences at Howard University voted overwhelmingly to call on the university's board of trustees to divest from Israel.

The faculty at this historically Black institution came down with a 25 to 2 vote in favor of divestment, beginning with the identification of university "funds that are being invested in 'offending' companies that are offering material support to Israeli Occupation."

The March 8th call was introduced by David Schwartzman, a biology professor of Jewish origin. He told "The Arab American News," there was not much opposition, except by the college's Dean, who refused to put divestment on the agenda. He plans on introducing a similar resolution to the faculty Senate this spring.

He sponsored the measure in the hope that "these resolutions start spreading around the country and generate action comparable to the anti-apartheid movement in the 1980s."

Zionist Hell: Neal Elyakin is your new Human Rights Commissioner

Photo: Hundreds of Ann Arborites demand divestment against Israel, as Israel massacres Lebanon, 2006.


Do you live in Ann Arbor, Michigan? Neal Elyakin, a Friend of the Israel Defense Forces, was recently appointed as your new Human Rights Commissioner, by the Ann Arbor City Council.

The Israel Defense Forces recently massacred 1400 occupied Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. (Palestinians killed 3 Israelis.)

So what is the City Council's concept of human rights? Do they regard Palestinians as human, or not?

Zionist hell: Gag Rule enforced by Ann Arbor News Media

The only sizeable newspaper in Ann Arbor, called "", carries detailed accounts of public commentary at Ann Arbor City Council. Yet the first time Elyakin's appointment was criticized at City Council, that newspaper printed nothing about it. The second time, the paper printed nothing again-- and the paper's reporter was sitting just a few feet away from Elyakin in the City Council chambers.

The paper even deleted the three articles it had already published which opposed Israeli and U.S. wars on the Muslim world. Since that time, the paper has never published anything against Israel on-line.

Meanwhile, the same newspaper carries warnings to report suspicious characters to the police as potential "terrorists".

Ann Arbor collaborators with the Zionist Holocaust

Israel and the U.S. have murdered millions of Muslims in the last decade alone, and millions more in previous decades. Do you remember their wars and starvation sanctions against Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon, Yemen, Afghanistan, and more? It's been a Holocaust against Muslims.

When the media gags the news, about the Israeli-American massacre of the Muslim world, then that media is collaborating with a Holocaust.

That kind of gag tells you what Muslim life is worth to the newspaper in question-- less than zero.

The Zionist Holocaust kills a Detroit Imam

Question: Just how little is Muslim life worth, to the government?

Answer: A half-hour away from Ann Arbor, the FBI recently shot a Detroit Imam 20 times.

The FBI's 20 bullets included three shots in the genital area, and a bullet in the back.

Dr. Carl Schmidt, Wayne County's chief medical examiner, said that the Imam's body was handcuffed and on the floor of a semitrailer when his investigator arrived at the shooting scene. The Imam's body also had a broken jaw.

Meanwhile, the FBI reportedly had their police dog, "Freddy", airlifted for medical attention. Later, FBI spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold told the news media that the FBI would hold a memorial for Freddy, and will add his name to a memorial wall.

Yes, at a time when the median home price in Detroit has fallen to $6000, and under half of Detroit males graduate from high school, the U.S. government spends trillions to occupy and butcher Iraq, Afghanistan, and other Muslim nations. The U.S. government also devoted years to investigating and then shooting dead a Detroit Imam whose chief preoccupation was feeding hungry children.

Zionist Hell: Detroit Schoolchildren Get Nothing, while Israel Gets $300 Billion

When will you demand a resolution to Congress, demanding that Congress stop giving $300 billion to Israel, and start spending that $300 billion to rebuild Detroit?

When will you start marching on your City Council, to make sure they boycott Israel?

When will you demand some answers, when your City Council appoints a Friend of the Israel Defense Forces to your Human Rights Commission?
