Professor Mohammed S. Dajani Daoudi, is a Jerusalem-born scholar and peace activist with two doctorate degrees.  Until May of last year he was professor of political science, Rector of Libraries and founding director of the American Studies Graduate Program at Al-Quds University. He resigned from his posts at the university following the uproar resulting from leading 27 Palestinian students to Auschwitz in March 2014. This visit was part of a joint effort of three institutions—Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, Tel Aviv University, and Ben Gurion University of the Negev and Wasatia, an NGO founded by Dajani back in 2007 to promote moderation, tolerance, and justice. Dajani is the author of numerous books and in 2012 co-authored the only book in Arabic which deals with the Holocaust from a human perspective entitled, Holocaust Human Agony: Is there a way out of violence?
