US anti-imperialist peace campaigner Stanley Sheinbaum died of heart disease at his Los Angeles home on Monday at the age of 96.
Mr Sheinbaum gave up teaching to devote himself to what he called his quest to “create a little peace and justice in this unjust world.”
He raised funds to defend military analyst Daniel Ellsberg during his trial for releasing the Pentagon Papers, a secret study of the Vietnam war.
Mr Sheinbaum met the late Palestinian president Yasser Arafat in an unofficial peace effort, sparking protests by Israelis and the US Jewish community.
“For a while, I was the most hated Jew in America … by other Jews anyway,” he said in his 2011 autobiography.
After Mr Arafat died, Mr Sheinbaum said hope of a peace deal had died with him.
He also campaigned for the reform of the Los Angeles Police Department and for California universities to ditch investments in apartheid South Africa.
