Democratic representative Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) has gotten behind a push from anti-Israel faculty members at a small private California university to end its study abroad partnership with an Israeli university.
The move by faculty members at Pitzer College aims to suspend its study abroad program to University of Haifa in Israel until their demands are met by the Israeli government. Leading the charge is Professor Daniel Segal, an anthropology and history professor, who announced through his Twitter account that Tlaib was his movement’s newest backer.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Tlaib is in with #SuspendPitzerHaifa,” he wrote, along with a picture of Tlaib holding the group’s information pamphlet.
The picture was also posted by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, which said Tlaib supports the Pitzer faculty attempt to “suspend a study abroad program with Haifa University over Israel’s discriminatory policies against Palestinians.”
Tlaib, a Palestinian-American serving her first term in Congress, has endorsed the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS), which aims to wage economic warfare against the Jewish state. She has also said she would vote against providing any aid to Israel and spoke out against her fellow freshman members for taking a bipartisan trip to Israel.
