“The goal is to make the enemy pay.” – Brooke Goldstein, Director, the Lawfare Project
Founded in 2010, the far-right Lawfare Project was formed specifically to target supporters of Palestinian human rights. The sole purpose of the Lawfare Project is to impose “massive punishments” on academics, students and others for criticizing Israel and defending Palestinian rights.
The Lawfare Project uses techniques of racism and Islamophobia to push its campaigns of criminalization and repression, and is attempting to use the courts to do the same.
In attempting to silence Prof. Abdulhadi and the AMED Studies program, it seeks to use the courts to support the exterminationist perspective of its director, Brooke Goldstein, who claimed that “There is no such thing as a Palestinian person,” denying Palestinian identity and human existence.
