Liza Behrendt, an organizer for Jewish Voice for Peace Boston, spoke to Boston University students Wednesday night about the nonprofit, educational organization Taglit-Birthright Israel as part of Students for Justice in Palestines Israel Apartheid Week.

Behrendt said the program, which is partially funded by the Israeli government and partially funded by outside organizations, and sponsors free trips to Israel for Jewish youth, is anti-Palestinian in nature.

Birthright is an important institution for us to be talking about because of how powerful it is, she said. Its just a massive institution that has a wide reach globally and has so many Jewish people. Its a real force on campuses because there are thousands of young Jewish people there.

About 15 people attended the open discussion in College of Arts and Sciences room 225.

Behrendt spoke about her personal experience on a Birthright trip in 2008, when Israel had just invaded Gaza as a part of Operation Cast Lead.

She said her tour guide was reluctant to answer questions about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and made offensive remarks directed at Muslims in Israel.

While Behrendt said not all Birthright trips occur during a period of strife like hers did, they do affect participants views of Israel.

Many Birthright participants dont think of their experience as political, she said after the event. They think that its a fun time and that its about their heritage. The fact that they dont relate their own heritage and relationship to Israel to the experience of Palestinians is a problem in itself.

Behrendt said Birthright is pro-Israeli in a way that is anti-Palestinian, and the overwhelming environment of the trip distracts participants from what is occurring in Israel.

Minister Kenney issues statement regarding ‘ Israel Apartheid Week’

Ottawa, March 4, 2013 The Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, issued the following statement regarding so-called Israel Apartheid Week activities:

Everyone in this country has the right to freely and publicly express their views. That being said, I share the concerns of other Canadians about the reckless and overheated rhetoric associated with anti-Israel activities on many Canadian university campuses, and the toxic manner in which these activities are often carried out.

There is no better example than the so-called Israel Apartheid Week (IAW). Its organizers and participants have a regrettable history of promoting and holding events in ways that disregard the security and rights of Jewish faculty and students, censor other points of view, and limit academic discourse.

The disproportionate vitriol directed against the democratic State of Israel during Israel Apartheid Week stands in stark and ironic contrast to the silence of IAW organizers on the ongoing atrocities committed by the Syrian regime against its own citizens, and on the rampant brutalities and denial of rights in non-democratic countries in the Middle East, and elsewhere in the world.

In free societies such as Canadas and Israels, it is absolutely legitimate to debate and criticize government policies and practices. Indeed, Israel supports the right of free expression more than any other country in its part of the world. But with the freedom to criticize comes the responsibility to guard against hateful and intolerant rhetoric.

Operating under the guise of academic freedom, Israel Apartheid Week is a misleading attempt to delegitimize and demonize the only true liberal democracy in the Middle East. IAWs organizers choose to promote inflammatory propaganda over civil and enlightening debate. Their approach is at odds with the Canadian values of tolerance and mutual respect, and prevents meaningful dialogue from taking place.

As Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, I encourage Canadians to speak out against all forms of discrimination, intolerance and anti-Semitism.
