Mission Statement
There is No Apartheid in Israel: Evaluating SCAI's Argument
Scholars Speak Out



Welcome to the Stanford University Chapter of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East.  We are an organization of over fifty tenured faculty members at Stanford University committing our names to the cause of peace between Israelis and Palestinians. As faculty members at one of the world's most elite institutions of higher learning, we oppose the attempts by some at Stanford to oversimplify the conflict for the purpose of demonizing Israel.  Given the unprecedented access to information we have here at Stanford, we urge all members of the Stanford community to reject such misinformation and learn the facts. 

In particular, we oppose the current efforts of a group calling itself Students Confronting Apartheid in Israel to misrepresent and attack Israel.  For our full response to this misleading and ill-advised campaign, please click here.

Also, please take a moment to sign the Pro-Peace, Pro-Israel, Anti-divestment Petition.  It is imperative that we all show our support for a nuanced understanding of the conflict. 

Our parent organization, Scholars for Peace in the Middle East, currently reaches out to over 19,000 academics and members on over 1000 campuses worldwide. 

To join us, or for more information, please send an email to, and indicate your Stanford affiliation (if any).
