In 1975, as the UN was considering its Zionism-Racism resolution, the Harvard Committee on American Foreign Policy circulated and published a petition about Zionism and published it in the Harvard Crimson (image at ). The petition is notable for its principled defense of Zionism, an issue relevant in the discussions of the Harvard-sponsored conference on Zionism. The key quote: "Zionism is the historic struggle of the Jewish people for national self-determination and national liberation in the face of two thousand years of pogroms, genocide, and wars of annihilation. All national liberation movements ask for self-determination for their people in their homeland. By singling out for condemnation the national liberation movement of Jewish people, this resolution represents a virulent form of racism and anti-Semitism."
