According to an announcement on the GRITtv website:
"People have rights, and when we say we want to end Israel's multitiered system of oppression...we must immediately, in the same sentence, say people have equal rights in every formal way," says Omar Barghouti, author of the new book Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights. And author, activist and professor Sarah Schulman has been involved with the Palestinian queer movement, emphasizing that their struggle is deeply tied to the struggle to end the occupation.And author, activist and professor Sarah Schulman has been involved with the Palestinian queer movement, emphasizing that their struggle is deeply tied to the struggle to end the occupation. http://grittv.org/2011/04/11/rep-cory-mason-sarah-schulman-omar-barghouti-and-ceo-pay/

In an interview which appeared in the Gay City News headlined "Sarah Schulman Confronts the Palestinian Dilemma":
"Schulman underlined how "anti-occupation Israelis are in a very tough spot and need our support, especially the queers who are doubly marginalized. I think that community is amazing. Saying ‘Boycott Me' is so difficult to do. As Americans we know what it is like to have a government that commits war crimes."
During the GRITtv talk Barghouti said that Israel could be behind the recent murder of the theater director Juliano Mer- Khamis who was an active supporter of the Palestinian cause and was shot to death by terrorists obstensibly because his mother was a Jew making him Jewish. http://frontpagemag.com/2011/04/12/terrorists-murder-famed-palestinian-cheerleader/
