She says she doesn’t.
“I did not take it personally,” she wrote. “I do not take personally the fact that some faculty members were hiding behind hypothesized angry students and a law that many others seem to be unaware of.
“In my opinion, it would have been more dignified to tell me explicitly: We do not differentiate between those who support the occupation and those who are against it, between those who report on policies to forcibly evict the Bedouin or those who carry out that policy; for us, there is only one place for every Israeli Jew – outside.”
Amira, wake up. You are a Jew and you even admit that is why you are “outside.”
“It is well known that the university doesn’t employ Israeli Jews as academic staff, even from anti-Zionist left-wing circles,” she added in her article. “But I was never told that there was a university law against my very presence, as an Israeli Jew, on Birzeit’s campus…. If I had known about the existence of such a law, I wouldn’t have come to the conference. I have other places to invest my subversive energies.”
Hass admits, and even brags, that she is subversive. She gets a lot of attention that way, a real rush knowing she is fighting on the front lines by writing against Israel on the front page of Haaretz.
Hass concluded, “I understand the emotional need of Palestinians to create a safe space that is off limits to citizens of the state that denies them their rights and has been robbing them of their land. As a leftist, however, I question the anti-colonialist logic of boycotting left-wing Israeli Jewish activists. In any case, such leftists do not seek kosher certificates while opposing the occupation and striving to put an end to the Jewish regime of privileges. “
Good grief, woman, do you realize what your wrote?
Who are the real colonists, Israel or the Palestinian Authority?
Hass doesn’t get it. She will be back again and again in Ramallah promoting the Arab cause.
Amira, be careful, because one day, your Palestinian Authority friends may change their mind about suffering your presence.
Whether or not you remember you are Jewish, your Arab pals never will forgive you for being Jewish.
By the way, Amira, Happy New Year
