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 April 24, 2018 – SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY
A planned disruption (advertised as, “We protest against the University’s policies of defending Zionist Neocolonialism”) of a speaking event with Ambassador Dani Dayan, Consul General of Israel in New York, ended in one of the protesters being physically removed after disruptive chanting went on for several minutes just outside the event that made it hard to hear the speaker, and two activists interrupted inside the event. Protesters held signs that demonized and delegitimized Israel, stating, “Zionism = Racism, Where’s my Birthright?,” BDS until…Refugees Right to Return,” “NO to Islamophobia and White Supremacy,” and “End Israeli Apartheid, End the Occupation.” A Syracuse associate professor of political studies at the Maxwell School claimed, “Jewish students told me they are shaken by what happened [and] fear expressing even mild support for Israel on campus.”
