On Tuesday night, a resolution titled The Advancement of Palestinian Human Rights Act (SR S17-14) was introduced to the Student Life Committee of the Student Association. This resolution was written in collaboration with members of the Divest This Time campaign, which self-affiliates with the global Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions movement on their Facebook page. I am a progressive student who is anti-occupation, pro-Palestine, and pro-Israel, and these beliefs are not in conflict with one another. I believe that the State of Israel has a right to exist, and I believe that a Palestinian state must be established based on pre-1967 borders. I consider current Israeli treatment of and policy towards Palestinians residing in the West Bank and Gaza to be unacceptable and untenable. I am an advocate for a two-state solution. I believe that SR S17-14, though well intentioned, is counterproductive and misses the point.
