international academic and public intellectuals letter in support of Professor Abdulhadi
TO: Leslie Wong, President, San Francisco State University
Kenneth Monteiro, Dean of the College of Ethnic Studies, SFSU

Dear President Wong and Dean Monteiro,

As scholars and public intellectuals from many parts of the world, we write in solidarity with Professor Rabab Abdulhadi in opposition to the unprincipled, entirely false charges made against her by the AMCHA Initiative, which claims to be “Defending Jewish Students” in California universities by attacking individuals and institutions that in any way criticize, the State of Israel. In this instance, AMCHA and its founder, Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, allege that a scholarly delegation led by Professor Abdulhadi constituted a “taxpayer-funded pro-terror trip” (see AMCHA letter, May 27, 2014). Its charges are aimed at elected officials, hoping to silence scholars with whom AMCHA disagrees through political pressure upon their academic institutions. (Click here for Professor Abdulhadi’s response to charges).

By now AMCHA has a well-documented history of defamatory and often openly racist attacks on scholars and students in the University of California and California State University systems who oppose Israel’s policies and support Palestinian human rights. It seeks to intimidate by alleging that anyone who disagrees with it is “anti-Semitic.” Worse yet, it consistently tries to smear Arab-American academics like Professor Abdulhadi by suggesting that their scholarship alone makes them “terrorist sympathizers.”

As your investigation and public statements make emphatically clear, Professor Abdulhadi’s January 2014 academic and labor delegation to Palestine was an integral part of her responsibilities as Director of the Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas (AMED) Program in the College of Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State University. She complied with all university regulations and requirements in exemplary fashion.

AMCHA’s latest baseless allegations are more evidence of its attempts to silence anyone who speaks out in defense of Palestinian rights, in ways redolent of the McCarthy-era witch hunts that led to over 400 American academics losing their jobs. They are a basic violation of academic freedom and of Professor Abdulhadi’s fundamental civil right to free expression. They are also offensively and grossly racist. While we commend you for President Wong’s statement that AMCHA’s claims “have no merit,” we regret that any investigation took place, given what Dean Monteiro himself has called AMCHA’s attacks “ill intent” and “mean-spirited” In that context, we insist that you act to rebut the malicious attacks on not only Professor Abdulhadi but the entire AMED program as an integral part of Ethnic Studies at SFSU. AMCHA’s materials, defamatory on their face, should be immediately removed from University websites. AMED should be affirmed for the unique role it plays not only in California higher education, but the U.S. academy as a whole.

The University of California and California State University systems have well-deserved reputations for world-class scholarship and free inquiry. AMCHA’s bullying “degrades the campus climate for all,” to again quote Dean Monteiro. We urge you and all of your colleagues to stand firmly for academic freedom, and the right to speak, teach, and publish without fear about Palestine and Israel, as well as any other pressing international issue.

Sincerely,

Ci-dessous la lettre en français

Cher Président Wong, Cher Doyen Monteiro,

En tant qu’universitaires et intellectuels publics de partout dans le monde, nous souhaitons exprimer notre solidarité avec Madame la Professeure Rabab Abdulhadi. Nous souhaitons également souligner notre opposition aux accusations complètement fausses, qu’aucun preuve ne fonde, faites à son encontre par l’AMCHA Initiative (http://www.amchainitiative.org/), qui prétend «défendre les étudiants juifs» dans les universités californiennes en s’attaquant tant aux individus qu’aux institutions critiquant l’Etat d’Israël. Dans ce cas précis, l’AMCHA et sa fondatrice, Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, affirme qu’une délégation universitaire conduite par Madame la Professeure Abdulhadi, entamait «un voyage pro-terrorisme payé par les contribuables» (cf, le communiqué de presse d’AMCHA du 24 juin 2014). Leurs accusations visent les administrateurs élus, espérant ainsi mettre une pression politique sur leurs institutions pour réduire au silence les universitaires qui sont en désaccord avec l’AMCHA.

L’histoire des attaques diffamatoires par l’AMCHA, souvent ouvertement racistes, en direction des universitaires et étudiants de l’université de Californie et de California State University qui s’opposent à la politique israélienne et soutiennent les droits humains des Palestiniens, est bien connue à présent. Ils cherchent à intimider toute personne en désaccord avec eux en les accusant d’ «antisémitisme». Pire encore, ils tentent systématiquement de diffamer les universitaires arabo-américains comme Madame la Professeure Abdulhadi, en suggérant que la seule existence de leurs travaux de recherche les rendent «sympathisants des terroristes».

La mise en place d’une délégation universitaire en Palestine, en janvier 2014, menée par Madame la Professeure Rabab Abdulhadi, faisait partie intégrante de ses responsabilités en tant que directrice du programme académique intitulé ‘Arabes and Musulmans Ethnies et Diasporas’ (AMED) au College of Ethnic Studies à San Francisco State University.
En effet, vos enquêtes et déclarations publiques, en votre qualité de Président d’Université et de Doyen de l’Université, ont suffisamment mis ce point en avant : Professeur Rabab Abdulhadi a respecté tous les règlements et exigences de l’université de manière exemplaire.

Les récentes allégations d’AMCHA sont un exemple de plus de leur tentative de bâillonner les personnes soutenant les droits humains des Palestiniens. Cette tentative rappelle le temps du Maccarthysme et de sa chasse aux sorcières pendant lequel plus de 400 universitaires américains ont perdu leur travail. Elle viole non seulement le droit à la liberté académique mais aussi le droit civique fondamental à la liberté d’expression de Madame la Professeure Abdulhadi. De plus, cette tentative est largement raciste et offensante. Même si nous vous savons gré, Monsieur le Président Wong, de votre déclaration selon laquelle les affirmations d’AMCHA «ne sont pas avérées», nous regrettons qu’une enquête ait eu lieu étant donné que Monsieur le Doyen Monteiro a lui–même parlé d’ «attaques mal intentionnées» et «mesquines» de la part d’AMCHA. Dans ce contexte, nous insistons auprès de vous pour intervenir afin de faire cesser les attaques pernicieuses sur Madame la Professeure Abdulhadi et également sur tout le programme universitaire AMED, partie intégrante des Ethnic Studies à San Francisco State University . Les contenus grossièrement diffamatoires provenant d’AMCHA devraient être enlevés immédiatement des sites web de l’université. Le programme AMED devrait être conforté dans son rôle unique non seulement dans l’enseignement supérieur mais également dans le système universitaire américain dans son ensemble.

L’université de Californie et le California State University ont bien mérité leur réputation mondiale de liberté académique. L’intimidation faite par l’AMCHA, pour citer encore une fois Monsieur le Doyen Monteiro, «dégrade l’ambiance sur le campus pour tout un chacun». Par conséquent, nous vous appelons, vous et vos pairs, à défendre fermement la liberté académique, et le droit d’exprimer, d’enseigner et de publier sans crainte au sujet de la Palestine et d’Israël, ainsi que sur d’autres questions internationales majeures.

Recevez, Messieurs, nos salutations respectueuses,

Unten ist der Brief in Deutsch

Sehr geehrter Präsident Wong, sehr geehrter Dekan Monteiro,

Wir, Wissenschaftler_innen und Intellektuelle aus vielen Teilen der Welt, erklären uns solidarisch mit Prof. Rabab Abdulhadi gegen die prinzipienlosen, völlig falschen Verwürfe der AMCHA Initiative. Unter der Behauptung, sie „verteidige jüdische Studierende“ an kalifornischen Universitäten greift AMCHA Individuen und Institutionen an, die den Staat Israel auf irgendeine Weise kritisieren. In diesem Fall behaupten AMCHA und ihre Gründerin Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, dass eine wissenschaftliche Delegation unter Professor Abdulhadis Leitung eine „steuerfinanzierte pro-Terror Reise“ war (siehe AMCHA Presseerklärung vom 24. Juni 2014, auf Englisch). Die Anschuldigungen sind an gewählte Funktionär_innen gerichtet, in der Hoffnung, Wissenschaftler_innen, mit deren Meinung AMCHA nicht übereinstimmt, durch politischen Druck auf ihre wissenschaftlichen Institutionen zum Schweigen zu bringen.

AMCHA hat dokumentierterweise wiederholt verleumderische und häufig offen rassistische Angriffe gemacht auf Wissenschaftler_innen und Studierende in den University of California und California State University Systemen, die sich der Politik Israels widersetzen und palästinensische Menschenrechte unterstützen. AMCHA betreibt Einschüchterung, indem sie unterstellt, jeder, der nicht mit ihr einer Meinung ist, wäre „antisemitisch.“ Darüber hinaus versucht sie konstant, gegen arabisch-amerikanische Akademiker_innen wie Prof. Abdulhadi zu hetzen, indem sie suggeriert, dass allein schon ihre wissenschaftliche Arbeit sie zu „Terroristen-Sympathisanten“ macht.

Wie Ihre Untersuchung und öffentliche Stellungnahme nachdrücklich klarstellt, war Prof. Abdulhadis Wissenschafts- und Arbeitsdelegation im Januar 2014 nach Palästina ein wesentlicher Teil ihres Aufgabenbereiches als Direktorin des Arabische und Muslimische Ethnizitäten und Diasporas (AMED) Programms im College of Ethnic Studies an der San Francisco State University (SFSU). Sie kam allen universitären Regeln und Anforderungen auf vorbildliche Weise nach.

Die neuesten grundlosen Anschuldigungen von AMCHA zeugen wieder von ihrem Bemühen, jeden, der sich für palästinensische Rechte ausspricht, zum Schweigen zu bringen. Sie erinnern stark an die Hexenjagden der McCarthy Ära, die 400 amerikanischen Akademiker_innen ihren Job gekostet haben. Sie sind eine grundlegende Verletzung akademischer Freiheit und Prof. Abdulhadis elementaren Bürgerrechts auf freie Meinungsäußerung. Außerdem sind sie beleidigend und äußerst rassistisch. Wir applaudieren Ihnen, Präsident Wong, für Ihre Erklärung, dass AMCHAs Behauptungen „unbegründet sind,“ aber wir bedauern, dass überhaupt eine Untersuchung stattgefunden hat, angesichts AMCHAs „böser Absicht“ und „gemeinen Angriffs,“ wie Dekan Monteiro es selbst nannte. In diesem Zusammenhang bestehen wir darauf, dass Sie AMCHAs böswillige Angriffe aktiv zurückzuweisen, die sich ja nicht nur gegen Prof. Abdulhadi, sondern auch gegen das gesamte AMED Programm als einem integralen Bestandteil von Ethnic Studies an der SFSU richten. AMCHAs Materialien, offensichtlich verleumderisch, sollten sofort von Universitätswebseiten entfernt werden. AMED sollte bestärkt werden dank seiner einzigartigen Rolle nicht nur im kalifornischen Hochschulwesen, sondern in der gesamten U.S.-amerikanischen Hochschullandschaft.

Die Systeme der University of California und California State University sind mit Recht wohlbekannt für Wissenschaft von Weltklasse und freie Forschung. AMCHAs Schikane „zerstört das Uni-Klima für alle,“ um nochmal Dekan Monteiro zu zitieren. Wir bitten Sie und alle Ihre Kolleg_innen dringend, klar Stellung zu beziehen für akademische Freiheit und das Recht, über Palästina und Israel sowie jegliches andere drängende internationale Thema ohne Angst sprechen, lehren und veröffentlichen zu können.

Hochachtungsvoll,


Lettera in italiano è sotto

Caro presidente Wong, e caro direttore Monteiro,

In quanto studiosi e intellettuali provenienti da molte parti del mondo, scriviamo questa lettera in solidarietà con la professoressa Rabab Abdulhadi e in opposizione alle sconsiderate e interamente false accuse avanzate contro di lei dall’AMCHA con il sedicente proposito di “difendere gli studenti ebrei” nelle Università della California contro gli attacchi da parte di individui e istituzioni che in un qualche modo criticano lo Stato di Israele. A questo proposito, l’AMCHA e il suo fondatore, Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, insinuano che una delegazione di accademici con a capo la professoressa Abdulhadi abbia compiuto un “viaggio a favore dei terroristi e alle spese dei contribuenti” (si veda ciò che afferma l’AMCHA alla stampa il 24 giugno 2014). Queste accuse vogliono far sì che il collegio eserciti pressioni politiche su ciascuna delle istituzioni accademiche a cui appartengono gli studiosi con cui l’AMCHA non è d’accordo, mettendoli così a tacere.

All’oggi, l’AMCHA vanta una storia molto ben documentata di diffamazioni e attacchi spesso apertamente razzisti contro accademici e studenti degli atenei dell’Università Statale della California che si oppongono a Israele e che sostengono i diritti umani in Palestina. Cerca di intimidirli insinuando che ogni persona che non è d’accordo con lui è ‘antisemita’. Ancor peggio, cerca costantemente di infangare la reputazione di intellettuali arabo-americani come la prof. Abdulhadi, facendo intendere che il loro sapere accademico è ciò che li rende ‘simpatizzanti dei terroristi’.

Come hanno reso assolutamente chiaro sia le nostre ricerche, sia le affermazioni pubbliche, la delegazione di accademici e di lavoratori formatasi nel gennaio 2014 era interamente sotto la responsabilità del Direttore del Programma dell’Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas (AMED) all’interno del College of Ethnic Studies dell’Università statale di San Francisco. In quell’occasione lei ha rispettato inmodo esemplare tutti i regolamenti ed i presupposti fissati dall’università.

Le ultime isinuazioni senza fondamento di AMCHA mettono piuttosto in luce i suoi sforzi nel far tacere chiunque parli in difesa dei diritti del palestinesi, in un modo che ricorda quella caccia alle streghe che sotto il maccartismo fece perdere il lavoro a più di 400 accademici. Vi è qui una violanzione dei più elementari diritti civili, quello della libera espressione. Quelle accuse, poi, sono ammantate di un razzismo volgarmente offensivo. Pur elogiandola, Presidente Wong, per il coraggio delle sue affermazioni, secondo cui le rivendicazioni dell’AMCHA ‘non hanno fondamento’, ci dispiacciamo del fatto che nessuna indagine sia stata portata avanti, soprattutto dopo che lo stesso Direttore Monteiro ha definito le intenzioni dell’AMCHA’s ‘maligne’ e ‘animate da cattiveria’. In questo contesto, insistiamo che lei prenda iniziativa e respinga gli attacchi calunniosi non solo contro la professoressa Abdulhadi ma contro l’intero Programma AMED come parte integrante degli Ethnic Studies presso l’Università Statale di San Francisco. Il materiale diffuso dall’AMCHA, espressamente diffamatorio, dovrebbe essere rimosso immediatamente dai siti internet dell’Università. AMED dovrebbe essere rinsaldato per l’unico ruolo che ricopre non solo nell’ambito del sistema educativo superiore californiano ma nell’intero sistema accademico americano.

Gli atenei dell’Università della California e dell’Università Statale della California godono di un’importante e meritata reputazione per il sapere ‘internazionale’ che diffondono e per i principi di libera ricerca che li contraddistinguono. L’azione intimidatoria dell’AMCHA ‘rende l’atmosfera del campus degradata, per tutti’ secondo le parole del Direttore Monteiro. Sollecitiamo dunque Lei e tutti i colleghi a prendere ferma posizione a favore della libertà accademica, del diritto di parlare, insegnare e pubblicare senza alcun timore le nostre posizioni su Israele e Palestina e su tutte le questioni internazionali calde.

Cordialmente, La salutiamo,
