Bring Professor Rashid Khalidi Back to RamPo

282 Signatures Goal: 300

I, an open-minded, intellectually honest, and unprejudiced student of the Ramaz Upper School support The Ramaz Politics Society's (RamPo) event on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict headlined by Columbia Professor Rashid Khalidi. I believe it is critical that Ramaz students are exposed to different perspectives and that open dialogue be encouraged at Ramaz—not limited. I call upon Head of School Mr. Shaviv to realize how important academic equitability is to the Ramaz community and reverse his prohibition on Professor Khalidi's address to RamPo.

    We cannot exclude Palestinian voices from our Jewish communities if we want to have a deep and full understanding of Israel.

    Rudolph Hoess, maybe you go back and correct your name, if you can, to fit the attempts at shaping student's perception by Jojo and Dieudonne above. It's actually Rudolf Hess. But never mind.

    I hope some kids here realize that maybe one should look at the Rashid Khalidi's books to actually understand what this is about. I have to agree though, Rashid Khalidi is much to attractive and intelligent a man to allow students to be confused by. Much less if it constantly 1930 again, or was it 38?

    Thus I welcome your attempts, especially Dieudonne's to alert the kids to the fact that this man actually is a wolf in sheep skin. ;) Some knowledge should be avoided like a pest, no doubt.
