Recent Antisemitic Activity

 

bullet img November 15, 2017 – TUFTS UNIVERSITY
 A student wrote an article in the school paper protesting the “Fletcher Spring Break Israel Trek” that denied Jews self-determination and demonized Israel, stating, “These kinds of programs give a dominant Israeli narrative of Israeli-Palestinian relations. The assumption here is that Israel must remain a Jewish state, that the right of return of Palestinian refugees to their homeland is unmanageable, that Israel is the only prosperous, multicultural democracy in the Middle East and that its continuous occupation of Palestine is necessitated by security concerns… I urge you to think critically about such initiatives and the motives behind them so that the name of our school and its students don’t serve the purpose of occupation and supremacy.”
