AVI/HRC Campus Media Fellow op-ed on the San Remo Conference published in Ynet

On June 5th, 2024, University of Waterloo student Noa Boulaki got published in Ynet News.

In “San Remo: a historical case for Jewish self-determination,” Noa emphasizes the significance of the San Remo Conference in formally acknowledging the Jewish tie to the land of Israel, and its importance in the successful decolonization of Israel.

“Since the Oct. 7 terror attacks on Israel, media and social media have been falsifying claims that the Jewish people have no ties to Israel, no rights to Israel and that Jews are colonizers and “occupiers” of the land. These assertions, fueled by propaganda and ignorance, ignore the historical facts about the land and Jewish people,” writes Noa.

“The San Remo Conference declared Palestine to be a legal entity, one that contained the areas today known as Israel, Gaza, the West Bank and Jordan (which would eventually become a nation of its own).

This resolution acknowledged the ‘reconstitution of the Jewish National Home in Palestine,’ a nod to the indigeneity of the Jews in the area. Meanwhile, the agreement also recognized national rights for Arabs in neighboring regions of Syria, Lebanon and Iraq.”
