Stanford Profs Beinin, Barhoum, and Crews Sign Divestment Petition
Stanford Out of Occupied Palestine, a coalition of student groups and individuals, has addressed a petition
to the Stanford Board of Trustees urging divestment from "corporations [that are] complicit in the infrastructure of occupation, collective punishment, state-sponsored repression, and unjust incarceration in Palestine."
Joel Beinin, Donald J. McLachlan Professor of History and Professor of Middle East History, is featured prominently at number four in the "faculty/staff" section of the signatories list, followed closely by Robert Crews, director of the Sohaib and Sara Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies, and Khalil Barhoum, program coordinator for the African and Middle Eastern Language Program. Apparently, anti-Israel activism is what passes for Middle East studies "scholarship" at Stanford University these days.
