Kudos To…

thumbs-up

  • KUDOS to University of Minnesota President Kaler for his strong statement and recognition that, “the inclusion on the ballot of a non-binding referendum that names Israel is exacerbating tension and fueling discrimination toward Jewish students. My statement of two years ago is as relevant today as it was then: ‘Our University strongly and unequivocally condemns prejudice and hostility toward Jews, as we condemn bias against any groups.’”

bullet img May 17, 2018 – UC LOS ANGELES
SJP disrupted a Students Supporting Israel (SSI) event on campus entitled “Indigenous Peoples Unite,” with three speakers from the Armenian, Jewish, and Kurdish communities, by storming the room, ripping down Armenian and Jewish flags, chanting loudly, dancing, and denigrating the panelists. During panelist Dario Ouliguian’s talk about being a survivor of the Armenian genocide, one student walked up to Ouliguian, ripped down the “mother f—king” Armenian flag, and threw Ouliguian’s notes away and yelled in his face, then placed the flag around his shoulders and refused to return it. Additional anti-Israel activists then surrounded the entire room playing loud music and dancing and clapping in front of the panelists, using blow horns and whistles and chanting “free, free Palestine, Palestine will be free,” “We don’t want 2 states, we want ’48,” “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” “No peace on stolen land, justice is our demand” “Protesting is not a crime, free free free Palestine,” as well as “Israel is a terrorist state!” The activists then ripped down the Israeli flag. When Ouliguian tried to return to the microphone, the group started screaming, “F—k white supremacy!” Campus police were called to remove the protesters, who shut down the event and occupied the room for roughly 15 minutes. Upon removal, one student yelled, “UCLA is on the side of racism! And the terrorist state of Israel!” Loud chanting and screaming with the megaphone continued in the hall outside the event which clearly continued to disrupt the event and made it nearly impossible to hear the presenters.

A guest column in the school paper by an SJP member demonized Israel with an accusation of “systematic terror employed by Israel not only during the country’s creation, but today as well.” The column further accused Israel of a “Zionist strategy of ethnic cleansing…[and]… the ethnic cleansing of over 750,000 men, women and children, and the killing of over 15,000.”

Stanford SJP released a statement that accused Israel of carrying out an “ongoing Nakba, Israel’s policy of land theft and ethnic cleansing in Palestine.” The statement coincided with a demonstration with JVP at Stanford where participants held signs in White Plaza accusing Israel of committing a “massacre” in Gaza.

bullet img May 14, 2018 – DEPAUL UNIVERSITY
An open letter in the campus paper called on the board of Trustees to open up its investment portfolio in connection with a past BDS vote. The open letter stated, ” In 2014, the DePaul University administration was petitioned by pro-Palestine students to divest from pro-Israel investments, amidst opposition from pro-Israel lobbyists on campus. Even though the vote was successful in pulling funds from these causes, the board of trustees still maintains the confidentiality of their investment portfolio. Though this is within the university’s legal rights, a university that claims to be morally driven should – on principle – make their morally consequential behavior public to be held accountable for said behavior.”
