INTERFAITH STATEMENT ON ILAN PAPPÉ VISIT TO IUPUI 

We, Jews, Christians, Muslims, and others committed to peace and justice for Israelis and Palestinians, recently co-sponsored or supported the Indianapolis talk of the preeminent Israeli historian Ilan Pappé. In response, the Indianapolis Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) tried to smear Prof. Pappé and accused us, at least indirectly, of advocating anti-Semitism. We write to challenge these claims, defend our reputation, and say, loudly and clearly, we will not be intimidated by these shameful tactics.

Before Prof. Pappé had uttered a word, the JCRC issued a public statement calling him a “discredited” historian and a purveyor of hatred. Both of these claims are demonstrably false.

Prof. Pappé is one of the most well-respected and prolific scholars on the history of the Middle East conflict. His peer-reviewed books have been published by some of the most prestigious presses in the world, including Cambridge University Press, University of California Press, I. B. Tauris, and Routledge. In addition, his refereed articles have appeared in numerous high-ranking journals. He is a professor at the University of Exeter, a premier research university in the United Kingdom. The JCRC regards him as dangerous, precisely because he is so highly respected.

The JCRC is right about one thing: Prof. Pappé opposes the violent form of Zionism that justifies the ethnic cleansing of Arab people—and denies them their rights. His opposition is not born out of hatred of his own people, but out of love. Prof. Pappé dreams of an Israel in which all are free and safe from violence, including Palestinian Arabs.  He advocates democracy: one person, one vote. 

Inspired by his example, we will not remain silent in the face of the oppression of Palestinians and all other people of the Middle East, no matter what regime deprives them of life, liberty, and the pursuit of their most basic human needs. We do not fear the JCRC’s blatant attempts to bully us, or anyone else.  Like Prof. Pappé, we do not advocate hatred of anyone. We love justice, and we want it for all people in the Middle East.
