I mention here also some Jewish intellectuals, who are highly critical of the
Israeli politics and human rights violations.
Naomi Klein, Judith Butler, Noam Chomsky, Moshe Zuckermann, Norman Finkelstein.
The Israeli scholar Ilan Pappe, who wrote a famous book about
the ethnic cleansings of Palestinians during the war in 1948.
You can learn from it. 
As mrs Mendivil, those people and organisations show
the true colours of the State of Israel, occupation and
What has mrs Mendivil said, that is so
She uses her right on free speech [which you
have tried to deny her] to talk about Israeli politics, based on a
POLITICAL MOVEMENT, ZIONISM.
She talks about colonialism.
She talks about occupation. 
Whether you agree with it or not, nowhere I have read the
Where is she stigmatizing Jews?
She does NOT accuse ''Jews'', which would have
made it anti semitic, indeed.
She talks only about zionism and the existence of a State,
based on that zionism and the consequences of that.
If you don't believe me, read the interview with her in
which she explains her points of view. 
When you had taken the trouble to speak with her
before taking your decision, you would have known.
By the way, did you know, that 250 Israeli scholars have
protested against your decision of the suspension
of mrs Meldivin? 
Of course you know, because you received the
Should they act as such, were she a real anti semitic?
Think for yourself.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION WITH PROOF
Since 1967 Israel occupies the Palestinian territories the Westbank, East
Jerusalem and Gaza , which, as by all occupations in the world,
has laid to oppression and humiliation of the occupied Palestinian
population, human rights violations and warcrimes, as Gaza
military expeditions like Cast Lead and Protective Edge, which lead
to thousands of Palestinian deaths. 
Another utter injustice are the illegal settlements in the occupied
Palestinian territories , which are extended untill now , which
means pure landrobbery.
Freedom of movement and difficult access for thousands
of Palestinians to reach their fields and marketing their produce,
as difficult access to hospitals and schools,
has further been limited by the illegal
Israeli Wall. 
The blockade of Gaza is a starvation operation of the Israeli
occupation regime. 
And last, but not least, the clear apartheid policy:
There is a different legal system for Israeli’s and settlements compared
with the Palestinian population in the occupied territories Westbank
and East Jerusalem [in Gaza there is a different legal system,
according to laws, imposed by the Hamas government]
A common legal system for Israeli’s and settlers, the military
law for occupied Palestinians, despite the fact they are civilians. 
Also there are other discriminatory laws in Israel. 
Concerning the drama, which political zionism
[which de facto means, founding a State in the land of
another people, in casu the Palestinians, first an Ottoman
colony, then a British Mandatory], violating the Palestinian
right to selfdetermination and indeed leading to
neo colonialism, I advise you to read Professor Ilan Pappe's
the Ethnic cleansing of Palestine , as my article
''Disaster over Palestine, the refugee problem
and the ideology of transfer'' 
The message is clear:
Anti semitism is racism against Jewish people.
Not critics on the State of Israel.
Those are two wholly different things.
Professor Mendivil mentions the Israeli SYSTEM of occupation,
the oppression, the human rights violations, the colonialism,
the system of apartheid.
You can agree with that or not [although denying it
is getting harder every day] , but it is NOT anti semitism.
Therefore I demand from you, that you stop embarrassing
yourself and end the suspension of Professor Meldivin,
who has the right on free expression and her academic freedom.
If you don''\t, you are a supporter of a system of
occupation and oppression, that is harder to defend, as
You will find yourself at the wrong side of history.
Thanks for reading this letter.
