Gaza Genocide Promoter Baroness Cox – Dundee University Must Withdraw Honorary Degree 218


Baroness Cox is a prominent supporter of organisations which actively and openly promote the ethnic cleansing of all Palestinians from Gaza. She was incredibly given an Honorary Degree by the University of Dundee in 2006. I call on the students and academic staff of Dundee University to campaign to have this award stripped from her.

It is a matter of shame to me that my University has honoured a woman whose primary political activity is as a promoter of genocide.

Baroness Cox’s support for the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians is persistent and consistent. She is the deputy head of the Presidium of the Jerusalem Summit, an organisation which states that:

“The establishment of a Palestinian state must be removed from the political agenda”

The Jerusalem Summit calls for the deportation of all Palestinians from Gaza.

This is not an accidental association of Baroness Cox. She also is a key member of the Israeli Institute of Strategic Studies, which also calls prominently for the ethnic cleansing of all Palestinians from Gaza:

“The only durable solution requires dismantling Gaza, humanitarian relocation of the non-belligerent Arab population, and extension of Israeli sovereignty over the region.”

This is not an issue of freedom of speech. Genocide is in process in Gaza today. To support genocide is not a legitimate academic position within the realm of free debate. Dundee University must end its honouring of Baroness Cox, or be seen as endorsing the legitimacy of her views, which all decent people find obnoxious.

    “Then the Hasbara trolls like you accuse the Palestinians of causing the problems,”

    If you bother to look you will see that I accuse both Hamas and the Isreali Govt of causing the problems – without the acknowledgement of that basic fact then there is no chance of peace and progress other than through complete military victory of one side over the other. I have already made it clear that the Isreali Govt response is totally disproportionate and constitutes a war crime – but that is not enough for the moral pygmies who also expect people to turn a blind eye to the crimes committed by Hamas.

    Lady Dorking is of course continuing to show her contempt for free speech.

    My hero, St Tony of Blair. Spreads peace and harmony wherever he touches earth. Didn’t even have to go to Puglia to piss off the locals –

    Flagged his new sinecure some time ago: this was announced a couple of days after he flew to Azerbaijan in the middle of the first ceasefire talks. Whose terms he proposed on Netanyahu’s behalf.

    Scum.

    You mention the dual-responsibility of Israel/Hamas but you don’t add the Chief Enabler of Israel.

    Do you think the US is also to blame for blocking International efforts to send Israel to the Hague?

    Mods My duplicated posts are now at the bottom of page 1. Could you delete one of them please. They were originally at the bottom of page 1 and top of page 2 which must have irritated somebody here!

    You’re the fair-minded sort of chap who lokes seeing industry and application rewarded, aren’t you?

    So would you consider joining me in proposing commenter “Mary” for a life peerage?

    Her style could be Baroness Mary ..X.. of Gaza. Unless, of course, you have something better up your (capacious) sleeve?
