As Naftali Bennett and others push for the unilateral annexation of large parts of the West Bank to Israel, I saw no reason not to add my support to this letter, which I’m attaching here. Strong words, they got sent around on the listserv run by the Scholars for Israel and Palestine group associated with the “Third Narrative.” The co-signers identify themselves for Israel and against the occupation. An alternative to boycotting the entire country, the letter supports the idea of leveling personal sanctions against four individuals inside and outside the current government identified as key actors responsible for promoting, in violation of international law, the construction of settlements in the occupied West Bank. Couched in the language of political emergency and liberal Zionism, it suggests that Israel stands today on the brink between a more democratic future and an apartheid one-state “nation state of the Jewish people.” I’m not sure I would have joined a similar call outside this kind of framework. The co-signers are university colleagues who have all come out in no uncertain terms in support of a 2 state solution and in opposition to BDS, especially against calls for the academic boycott of Israel. After the elections in March, the point of this letter might be moot, or it might be more necessary than ever.
