Statement of Condemnation of Terrorism: The Intifada is Not Civil Disobedience
We the undersigned 600+ students, alumni and faculty write today to condemn Columbia University
Apartheid Divest’s dismissal of terrorism as “civil disobedience.” The first and second intifadas mark tragic
low points in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Thousands of innocent civilians on both sides were murdered
during these violent periods. The mischaracterization of suicide bombings, stabbings, and shootings as “civil
disobedience” is an egregious ethical breach. We proudly uphold the value of free speech, but malicious
incitement and fictitious characterizations do not lie within that value and should find no welcome within our
campus discourse.
