  • Kudos to UIUC Chancellor Jones for his message to the community – “….anti-Semitic attacks hidden under the guise of anti-Zionist rhetoric are all too common.”
  • Kudos to the Associated Students of Madison for unanimously passing a resolution against antisemitism that notes, “anti-Semitic incidents tend to occur when anti-Israel legislation are introduced in student government or in a student body.”

 Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), Haymarket Books, Jacobin, Jews for Racial & Economic Justice (JFREJ), and The New School Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism program co-sponsored the event, “Antisemitism and the Struggle for Justice.” During the event, Lina Morales falsely claimed that Zionism “enacted cultural genocide against Jewish cultures that didn’t fit its version of a reconstituted western Jewishness.” Rebecca Vilkomerson delegitimized Israel by falsely accusing it of “practicing apartheid” and claimed antisemitism today is an, “especially virulent Trumpian form of Zionist anti-Semitism.” She further claimed Christians United for Israel’s religious viewpoints are essentially built on an “anti-Semitic vision.” Linda Sarsour expressed support for BDS, stating, “I’m also a very staunch supporter of the boycott, divestment, sanctions movement… Boycott, divestment, sanctions is actually a tactic…So I’m a supporter of BDS.”

Text under the swastika read, “we’re here” and “anti-antifa” as well as a smiley face with two lightning bolts for eyes, reminiscent of the “SS Bolts,” the Nazi symbol for the SS.

IUPUI SJP released a statement condemning a Spirit and Place expression of concern about characterizations made during the “Tunnel of Oppression” event. The SJP statement demonized and delegitimized Israel, stating, “We are disappointed that Spirit and Place…decided to side with a racist, pro-colonial and white supremacist narrative on the illegal occupation of Palestine and the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians…This move was an attempt to steal the power from an indigenous people resisting genocide, colonialism and white supremacy…FREE PALESTINE.” Spirit and Place is a legacy project of The Polis Center and part of the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI.”
