1. Scott Douglas Jacobsen: You noted the naïvete, characteristic awkwardness, and lack of preparedness for culture in “the ‘real world.’” It seems like a negative to me. However, you overcame it. What positives came from development throughout early life in an isolated community? What negatives and positives might come from development in early life in the ‘real world’ or the mainstream culture? 

Pardes Seleh: I was a lot more awkward and timid during my elementary, junior high, and high school years. I think going to college and being exposed to so many opportunities gave me the courage I needed to pursue the things I wanted.

I haven’t thought about this enough [Laughing]. It is a really good question. Entering the secular world and not knowing anything about politics and entering the political world/scene, I think the biggest benefit was that it made me feel not embarrassed to ask questions.

In my head, I’m thinking, “Okay, I don’t know anything. I am coming to this knowing this. Not being exposed much.” In my head, I had an excuse as to why I didn’t know anything. So, I didn’t feel small or stupid or asking questions.

I found myself asking questions and trying to learn a lot in a very short amount of time, growing a lot faster in my career if I didn’t have that background. Also, I have the advantage of coming into this society with a clean slate.

I don’t have all of these preconceived notions about things. I didn’t have boyfriends or anything like that. I didn’t have negative experiences that a lot of my peers have now. I have a more optimistic worldview in some ways, which makes it easier for me to stay in my relationships.

Because I don’t have a lot of preconceived notions around a lot of things we’re dealing with now, I can analyze it with a fresh look. It is much less likely to be biased some deeper feeling I may have on the issues because I didn’t have exposure to it, if that makes sense.

Everything in politics, I didn’t know everything [Laughing]. I still don’t know a lot. I need to learn a lot. Every issue coming up, I had to think about. I didn’t grow up knowing what my perspective would be on various issues.

2. Jacobsen: You speak four languages – English, Hebrew, Farsi, and Spanish – at varying levels of proficiency. Where does this talent source itself?

Seleh: My first language was Farsi, which my parents spoke to me at home. I learned English and Spanish at school and in the community, and Hebrew during a gap year I spent studying in Israel after high school.

3. Jacobsen: You studied at Santa Monica College from 2012 to 2014, and then at University of California, Los Angeles, or UCLA, (Human Biology and Society) from 2014 to 2016. How does the specialization inform perspectives on social and political issues? What research paradigms tend to acquire the most funding? How does this bias research?

Seleh: Politics and social issues influence everything. Even scientific study – true, experimentally derived facts are objective and no longer theory based – but there are billions of studies and experiments yet to be conducted just on Earth.

There is an infinite amount of facts yet to be derived, and if you look hard enough you can find at least one fact out of them to contribute to your version of an absolute scientific reality. I’m not saying science is not absolute, just that it is constantly evolving based on ongoing study. And how do scientists and their research sponsors choose what kind of studies they pursue?

Most contemporary scientists are not drowning in inherited cash to fund random and rather expensive studies with no specific purpose other than aimlessly ‘exploring’ the scientific realm of nature.

The study of science is human-driven, and politics and social issues often drive humans, whether we choose to recognize it or not. Especially in the modern industrial society, science is heavily influenced by politics. Even subconsciously, what you choose to hypothesize about nature is no doubt influenced by your conscious past, as any Freudian can tell you.

I can go on and on about my opinions on this but I’ll spare you the boredom. Bottom line is, my interest in politics influences my perspectives on science just as my deep interest in population genetics influences sociopolitical thought.

4. Jacobsen: You have certification from the American Red Cross as a lifeguard.[5] In fact, this reflects lifeguard experience, multiple volunteer, or even research – such as perioperative medical research, capacities: volunteer at Bikur Cholim, student researcher at UCLA, student researcher, independent student volunteer, and TCAB volunteer at Cedars-Sinai.[6] How do these volunteer experiences benefit professional life and inform personal perspective?

Seleh: In high school, we did a lot of volunteer work. It was part of being in a community. That was one of your obligations as a community member, to help out. It was contributing to your community, doing your part in the community.

My mom was involved in things too. It was part of my life growing up, volunteering. Then in college, the volunteer work was something to put on my resume because I ,wanted to go to medical school. Any profession that I wanted to follow, which at the time was something medical or healthcare related, required volunteer hours.

It was a no-brainer. I wanted to get as much volunteer experience as possible.

5. Jacobsen: You were a student contributor for TruthRevolt. You covered a range of topics such as Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement (BDS), and anti-semitism.[7],[8],[9],[10],[11],[12],[13],[14],[15],[16],[17],[18],[19],[20],[21],[22],[23],[24],[25],[26],[27],[28] What defines SJP and BDS to you?

Seleh: SJB, Students for Justice in Palestine, and BDS, Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, are to boycott Israel. It is to try and cripple Israel’s economy. For me, it comes from hatred or fear. Israel is a thriving country. It is doing really well, economically. From many perspectives, it is doing well. Its military is doing well.

Its tourism is doing well. Tourism may be their main income. They also manufacture a lot of products around the world. They also have skilled labour, which is known for technical expertise and inventions.

They are doing well. People feel threatened by that. Whether or not they pose a threat to anybody else, the argument against them is really completely based on their success. The BDS movement is a way to try and hinder their success because that is seen as the main threat.

I don’t think that trying to boycott another country is the best way to cripple their progress because this boycott movement has been going on for a while. It does not get affected by it. It is only affecting the people using it. It only hurts them.

The best way to get over that is for people to invest in their own economies and try and do well themselves. I think that all boycott movements, in my opinion, are a joke. The only person you end up hurting is yourself.

Because there will always being a buyer. When there is a valuable product on the market and in demand, there is always going to be somebody who wants it and to take you business. You will hinder progress by going after consumers and people who want to do business with a country.

Otherwise, it would have worked by now [Laughing]. It would have worked on some level. People say, “It is hurting Israel.” How often do you hear the Israeli Prime Minister going off on the BDS movement?

I can’t recall. From where I’m standing, it doesn’t seem to have an effect on them.

6. Jacobsen: What defines anti-semitism to you – actions and behaviors? 

Seleh: “Anti-Semitism” refers to an innate desire to destroy anyone who makes you feel inferior simply for being, in your eyes, ‘better’ than you, such as in terms of success or morality. It’s a human instinct, and probably everybody has it in them on some level towards the people they feel they have to compete against.

You might not always take action against them, but that feeling is always there until you feel that you no longer feel threatened by it. I’m not saying people hate Jews because Jews are ‘better’ than them- as a Jew, I am in no position to make that statement. But I do suspect “Anti-Semites” feel that way.
