We, the undersigned, declare our commitment to democracy and peace. We declare our continued support for a flourishing and secure state of Israel, and we stand in solidarity with Israel\'s democratic values. Furthermore, we support the creation of an economically thriving and secure Palestinian state, and peaceful coexistence between that state and Israel.
The Israeli/Palestinian conflict is complex and nuanced. We believe that efforts that vilify or delegitimize Israel, including the use of inflammatory rhetoric, are detrimental to peace and perpetuate the conflict rather than encourage genuine dialogue and reconciliation.
We hope that Stanford will be a place where thoughtful discourse on this complex topic will flourish, and that the Stanford community will help lead the way for a peaceful resolution to this conflict.
We are a collection of Stanford students who stand for peace in Israel and the rest of the Middle East. We oppose the campaign of divestment and slander that has been launched against Israel.
