Dr. Steven Salaita, a Palestinian American and world-renowned scholar,
was fired from his new position at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
(UIUC) because of his public criticism of the U.S.-sponsored Israeli
massacres in Gaza. He was also a prominent campaigner for the American
Studies Association’s decision to boycott Israeli academic institutions
last December.
