Know the Professor: Simona Sharoni

  • Supports and promotes BDS.[1]
  • Compared the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to campus rape, with Israel being the rapist, and Palestinians being the rape-victim.[2]
  • Stated that drawing parallels between the “Israeli apartheid” and campus rape is strategically beneficial for both the BDS movement and sexual assault survivor groups because it serves as “a means to an end…to create a just and equal society.”[3]
  • Signed an open letter calling on the German government to reject a resolution equating BDS with anti-Semitism. The letter also urged Germany to continue funding organizations, including pro-BDS NGOs, that “peacefully challenge the Israeli occupation” and “expose severe violations of international law.” [4]
  • Spoke at “Israeli Apartheid Week” in Columbia University.[5]
