Following in the footsteps of the growing number of U.S. academic associations
that have endorsed boycott resolutions, we call on our colleagues in
Middle East Studies to boycott Israeli academic institutions, and we
pledge not to collaborate on projects and events involving Israeli academic
institutions, not to teach at or to attend conferences and other events
at such institutions, and not to publish in academic journals based
in Israel. We call for doing so until such time as these institutions
end their complicity in violating Palestinian rights as stipulated in
international law, and respect the full rights of Palestinians by calling
on Israel to:

  1. End its siege of Gaza, its occupation and colonization of all Arab
    lands occupied in June 1967, and dismantle the settlements and the
    walls;
  2. Recognize the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens
    of Israel and the stateless Negev Bedouins to full equality; and
  3. Respect, protect and promote the rights of Palestinian refugees
    to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN Resolution
    194.
