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

Ideological distortions, including antisemitic and anti-Zionist slanders, poison debate and work against peace. Our mission is to promote scholarly discussion and interactions among faculty and students to expose and counter these distortions and to contribute to peace in the Middle East and to counter hate.

 We welcome scholars from all disciplines, faith groups and nationalities who share our desire for peace and our commitment to academic integrity and honest debate. We believe there is room for negotiation and need to counterbalance the well-documented and increasing anti-Israel and anti-Semitic forces that have made their way to the college campuses today. 

 More than 50 tenured Stanford Faculty are members.
