Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.
But let’s get back to the Al Jazeera report. If the information presented is accurate, Myanmar most likely is guilty of genocide. But suppose, just suppose, the same reporter had gone to the same academics at the same universities and, rather than querying them on Myanmar, had instead solicited their views on Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians and whether or not that constitutes genocide. What do you suppose their responses would have been? Or would there have been any response at all?
… “Genocide is self defense.” The words, of course, have a distinctly Orwellian ring to them. But this is what it has come down to. This is now the only acceptable position one may take in US academic discourse on the Palestine-Israel conflict, the only one that won’t jeopardize your career.
