Letter to Daily Cal at UC Berkeley
April 2nd, 2015
Students for Justice in Palestine Should Be Commended, Not Libelously Maligned
As a coalition of more than 400 organizations around the country working to end U.S. complicity with Israelís occupation and apartheid policies, we are dismayed by the Daily Calís decision to publish a hateful attack by David Horowitz -- entitled "Why I singled out Students for Justice in Palestine" -- targeting members of the Cal student community. UC Berkeley Students for Justice in Palestine should be commended for their work and commitment to justice and human rights for all, as demonstrated through their campaigns over the years that have inspired people of conscience around the country and world. Horowitzís libelous diatribe has no basis in reality and is far below the editorial standard one would expect from UC Berkeleyís paper.
