  • January 23, 2017 – New York University Jewish Student (Jordana) – “At first I thought nobody would expect that [antisemitism] from a school with such a large Jewish population, especially one in lower Manhattan. But after remembering the various anti-Israel gatherings I’ve walked through in Washington Square Park, and the swastika vandalism incidents I’ve heard about, I began to think that maybe it could be accurate…in the aftermath of the election, students often overlooked the continuing struggles of the Jewish community…Although of course I was upset by anti-Semitic rhetoric from Trump supporters, I was also struck by comments from students who spoke about the renewed importance of protecting minorities, before turning around and belittling any concerns expressed by Jews about anti-Semitism. It felt as though our concerns were less valid and less important than those of other communities.” Read more
  • March 28, 2016 – NYU Jewish Graduate Student (Samuel) – “One of my many concerns about BDS is not simply that is demonizes Israel as an ‘apartheid’ and ‘colonial’ state, but that its activists use this rhetoric in such ambiguous and normalizing ways” Read more
  • April 2014 Jewish NYU student and resident of Palladium and Steinhardt Sophomore (Anonymous) – “Being very straightforward, this made me feel targeted and unsafe in my own dorm room and I know others feel exactly the same as myself. I understand free speech rights but if this was targeted solely to Jewish students then this appears to be of a more threatening nature rather than informative.” Read More
  • April 2014 Jewish NYU student (Laura) – “I woke up this morning to frantic text messages and pictures of the flyers from many of my Jewish friends who live in Palladium, the dorm where these flyers were distributed. They expressed that waking up to these flyers, slipped under their doors in the dark of night, made them feel violated and unsafe. Slipping these flyers under students’ dorm room doors, in flagrant violation of NYU housing policy, creates a hostile environment for Jewish students.” Read More
  • September 2014, Jewish NYU Student Alumni (Steven) “As co-president of the Israel club at the NYU Hillel, I tried unsuccessfully to engage our critics. I attended meetings held by the Students for Justice in Palestine, joined Facebook groups, and attended anti-Israel events. My repeated overtures to pro-Palestinian groups on campus fell on deaf ears.”  Read more
  • September 2014, Jewish NYU Student Alumni (Steven) “Much like the Israeli-Palestinian conflict itself, dialogue between pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian advocates often fails because the two groups seek to yell at, rather than talk to, each other. However, even when we do listen to one another, there is a gulf which is more conceptual than linguistic. Israel advocates speak of Peace; Palestinian advocates of Justice…Most Israelis and Palestinians seek to live in peace, despite political differences. I hope that advocates abroad, rather than demanding vague notions of justice, can help us to build bridges and to promote peace.”  Read more

    11/12/15 – NYU SJP was one of 10 local SJP chapters endorsing an advertisement for a rally that contained several classic and contemporary antisemitic tropes: it called CUNY’s leadership “the Zionist administration” and claimed that the administration “reproduces settler-colonial ideology throughout CUNY through Zionist content of education”; it suggested that the administration’s ties to israel were responsible for tuition hikes; and it claimed that the birthright trips and study abroad programs in Israel were in “occupied Palestine,” effectively denying the existence of the Jewish state. In addition, one of the endorsers’ demands included on the advertisement was that CUNY “divests from Israel, companies that maintain the Zionist occuption.”

    BDS ACTIVITY (CALLS FOR BDS)
    8/30/17 – Student activists published a “NYU Disorientation Guide” for NYU students. Page 34 details SJP’s stance, which included calling for BDS and stating, “Given Hamilton’s view on staying true to NYU Principles, one would expect him to echo SJP’s call for the shutdown of NYU Tel Aviv….we call on the University to…shut down its study abroad site in Tel Aviv.” Page 41 details Jewish Voice for Peace’s stance on Israel which included the delegitimizing statement of, “We reject the conflation of Zionism and Judaism and call for an end to Israel’s decades-long…apartheid…” as well as a call for BDS stating, “we heed the call of Palestinians by participating in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.”

    BDS ACTIVITY (BDS EVENT)
    3/20/17 – SJP erected a mock “apartheid wall” (in this case, a decorated sheet) on campus that called for the right of return, which would effectively eliminate Israel as a Jewish state. The wall display launched a week of “Israeli Apartheid Week” events, where the advertisement for the week’s events stated that, “Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is an international series of events that seeks to raise awareness of Israel’s settler-colonial project and its apartheid system over the Palestinian people, and to build support for the growing Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement…This year’s IAW marks 100 years of Palestinian resistance against settler colonialism, as represented by the Balfour declaration.”
    DEMONIZATION2/22/17 – The Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies held the panel event “When I See Them, I See Us: Black Palestinian Solidarity in an Age of Struggle,” which was co-sponsored by the Urban Democracy Lab at the Gallatin School for Individualized Study and the NYU Chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. According to an article about the event, speaker Noura Erakat demonized Zionism, saying that it “internalizes some of those Orientalizing tropes that exclude Jews from humanity.”
    CONDONING TERRORISM1/12/17 – NYC SJP held a “Palestine Winter School” on New York University’s campus which included a series of 5 events. At the first event, “Palestine 101,” participants endorsed a global campaign to “#Free Ahmad Saadat,” the former general secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a designated terrorist organization for its role in deliberate attacks on civilians such as the 2014 killing of four Jewish worshippers while praying and a Druze police officer who rushed to the rescue at a Jerusalem synagogue.

Until return.” The phrase, “Until return” alludes to the right of return, which would effectively eliminate Israel as a Jewish state.
    DELEGITIMIZATION8/23/16 – SJP held the event “Frontlines of resistance: Bilal Kayed and the struggle for Palestine.” The advertisement for the event delegitimized Israel, falsely accusing it of “settler-colonialism from the river to the sea.”

    4/12/16 – NYU Law School held the event, “Palestine In Focus: Reports from the Ground” with speakers Raji Sourani, founder of the Palestinian Center for Human Rights and Shawan Jabarin, the founder and director of al-Haq in Ramalla and Amira Hass, a journalist. In his talk, Sourani condoned terrorism saying that Palestinians “have the right to resist occupation by any ways” and that the “freedom fighters…are seeking an end and right to self-determination.” He further insinuated that Jews are acting like Nazi’s stating that Palestinians “became the victim of the victim” after Israel was created as a safe haven for Jews following the Holocaust. Sourani demonized Israel claiming that the civilian population was the “target of the Israeli military forces in Gaza.” Shawan Jabarin delegitimized Israel in his talk claiming that the Israeli “apartheid system” is “worse then what it was in South Africa” and said to frame the occupation only in line “with the nature of colonialism and apartheid” because “that’s the case more than the other thing [occupation].” During her talk, Amira Hass demonized Israelis discussing the “Israeli average racist”, that “settlers are cunning…and criminals” and that she knows “every Palestinian I meet has been harmed by my state [Israel] or my people”. She further delegitimized Israel saying Israel is “settler-colonialism”. She additionally denied Jews self-determination effectively saying that Israel should not be a Jewish state by calling to abolish the law of [Jewish] return, which enables Jews to come to Israel and keeps Israel a safe haven for Jews. .

    4/1/16 – NYU Law Center for Human Rights and Global Justice, Law SJP and SJP held the conference, “The Palestinian Right of Return: A Legal and Political Analysis,” which argued for the right of return of millions of Palestinians to Israel, which would effectively eliminate Jewish self-determination. In addition to denying Jews self-determination by putting quotation marks around the words “Jewish State” while speaking and calling for the right of return, the first panelist additionally demonized Israel accusing the country of ethnic cleansing and systematic massacres, as well as called for BDS. Further panelists continued to call for the right of return.

During his talk, Pappe denied Jews self-determination, stating that he wanted the “political project” of Zionism “to come to a peaceful end,” and arguing for an end to the Jewish state through “emigration, social justice, and re-building a whole structure of power.” He also demonized and delegitimized Israel, falsely accusing it of “ethnic cleansing” and “settler colonialism” and claiming that Zionism was “immoral” and responsible for “the carnage we see today in Syria and other parts of the Middle East.” Finally, Pappe promoted BDS several times during his talk, saying, for example: “We should enhance our efforts to strengthen the BDS efforts against Israel.”

    (Description note, “The NYU resolution does differ in important ways from the CUNY one, however. While both target graduate students and endorse academic boycotts, the NYU resolution also calls on both NYU and the Graduate Student Union to divest from and decline to work with Israeli institutions and international companies doing business with Israel. Another difference is that the NYU Graduate Student Union is affiliated with the United Auto Workers Union (UAW), which makes its policies ultimately subject to UAW approval. Four months ago, UAW overturned a BDS resolution passed in 2014 by the University of California Graduate Student Union, also affiliated with UAW, on the grounds that the resolution espoused ‘discrimination and vilification against Israelis and UAW members who are of Jewish lineage,’ and could ‘easily be construed as academic and cultural discrimination against union members on the basis of their national origin and religion.’”)

    Washington Square News – US must not give Israel a blank cheque
    (Description note, “Israel is irrefutably in a state of war, the justice of which is being debated in this piece, but the United States should not be setting the precedent of support for administrations that perpetuate war…The continued U.S. military support of an administration that disrespects and insults high-profile government figures is embarrassing. Israel currently is ranked 19th in the U.N. Human Development Index, and outguns its neighbors by a heavy margin. Israel does not need the level of foreign aid that it receives from the United States. However, the support of Israel is not as big an issue in and of itself as is the level of interest that the United States exercises over the Middle East, and the world as a whole.”)

    Washington Square News – Vigil held for citizens of Palestine
    (Description note, The vigil, held in the NYU Law’s Vanderbilt Courtyard, also aimed to bring attention to Palestinian suffering and the Law School’s alleged pro-Israeli sympathies.Students brought large, black signs, handed out flyers and posed for pictures. The event was sponsored by Law Students for Justice in Palestine, one of NYU Law’s newest student advocacy groups, according to Law student Colinford Mattis…Gupta also pointed to NYU Law’s adoption of Thane Rosenbaum’s Forum on Law, Culture & Society in 2014 as evidence of the school’s animosity toward Palestinians. In a July 2014 opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal, Rosenbaum suggested that all citizens of the Gaza Strip could be considered combatants….Gupta also noted pro-Israeli sentiment on campus and suggested that it occasionally veered into hostility. “The community here can engage in a culture of dehumanization of Palestinians and others in the Middle East,” Gupta said. “Pro-Palestinian students can be called anti-semitic or branded terrorist sympathizers. This language can have a chilling effect on students’ willingness to participate in discussions and express themselves. By speaking out we are doing our best to address it.”)

We also extend our support to New York City Students for Justice in Palestine and their firm and committed struggle against Zionism and racism and for the liberation of Palestine…  [NYU SJP’s statement] is also part of needed political discussion about how we can fully assert and struggle for all of our rights and all of our liberation, for Palestine from the river to the sea… We share NYC SJP’s call for “struggle to confront and defeat Zionism.” These strugglers led a march through the streets of New York calling for “Intifada” and the liberation of Palestine this week… We are proud to call them – and all of the students, youth, and progressive forces who raise up the banner of Palestine inside the imperialist United States – our comrades in the struggle for the liberation of Palestine.”)

    (Description note, “We, the undersigned graduate workers from schools and departments across New York University heed the call of Palestinian trade unions and other members of Palestinian society to boycott, divest from, and sanction the state of Israel. We ask GSOC-UAW Local 2110 to stand in solidarity with Palestinian workers by calling on NYU and UAW to do the same.We urge the elected representatives of our union to stand alongside oppressed workers in Palestine, as other student and teacher unions from around the world have done in voting to boycott, divest and sanction Israel. We believe that as a union it is our duty to support Palestinians in their struggle for justice against the Israeli occupation that violates their human and civil rights, and systematically exploits their labor. And as teaching assistants, researchers, and student-workers, we must learn and teach others about the pressing global struggles of our time. ..”)

    BDS Movement – Palestinian Student Groups in Gaza Respond to Attacks on BDS by “NYC SJP”
    (Description note, “One straw man argument suggests that an ominous Palestinian BDS leadership forbids advocacy for a One State agenda.  This argument is misleading, and politically obtuse… requiring the BDS movement to put forward a solution before creating the conditions under which the Palestinian people can decide on the ultimate solution is not only undemocratic but also shortsighted….BDS is based on the three main Palestinian rights (most importantly the right of return for refugees) that, taken together, would contribute significantly to creating conditions that are favorable to Palestinian emancipation and self-determination….The three rights in the 2005 BDS Call correspond to the three main constituencies of the Palestinian people. No matter what solution the Palestinian people ultimately decide is just, it must address the rights of all Palestinians, in historic Palestine and in exile, we all agree.  These rights…cannot and should not be reduced to ending the 1967 occupation alone, as doing so would not just undermine the rights of 62% of the Palestinian people who do not live in the 1967-occupied territory, but also undermine the right of return of the refugees (internally displaced persons) who reside in the 1967 territory.”)

    October 4, 2015:
    NYC SJP – The BDS Ceiling
    (Description note, “Within the Palestine solidarity movement in the United States, the term “Palestinian Civil Society” is invoked with such reverence and awe that one would be led to believe that “Civil Society” is in fact a monolith with consolidated theoretical understanding of the settler-colonial reality in Palestine, with a coherent strategy to not just petition internationals to boycott and divest, but to build power in Palestine to lead a revolutionary struggle against Zionism. In reality, the actors within Palestinian Civil Society with the loudest and most powerful voices are the NGOs with the biggest pockets filled by international aid money, distributed by politicians within the Palestinian Authority or by international organizations themselves. When these supposed authorities on Palestine are questioned, too often is it dismissed as ultra-leftism, or even confused for a Zionist argument.This problem regarding how contemporary Palestinian Civil Society relates to BDS is how organizations here in the West have created a total and complete dependency on such actors to give them a license to push a specific kind of politics. A narrative has been established that we practice BDS because Palestinian Civil Society has asked us to. Again, the issue arises when organizers use that conversation to effectively censor politics that cross the boundaries of what the reverence surrounding Palestinian Civil Society has effectively set up. This creates a reliance on international aid distributors, the Palestinian Authority, and Western charity organizations that have effectively replaced the pre-Oslo mass-based civil society that were at the forefront of the First Intifada.By assigning sole legitimacy to represent the Palestinian people to international NGOs, student-based organizations hand the reigns of solidarity to those who are accepted by international imperialists and fail to look past the trap of NGOs and international law. Discussions on what Palestinian Liberation means are stunted from the beginning, because of the unwillingness of movement leadership to accept anything beyond BDS on an organizational level. We are repeatedly told we do not have the mandate to push the politics of a One-State solution, much less the necessity of National Liberation beyond what any Oslo Accord could accomplish.”)

    BDS Tracker

  • June 21, 2016: Failed – The parent union of the Graduate Student Union at NYU repealed the BDS vote by approving an appeal. The UAW decision to approve the appeal stated that no subordinate body of the parent union can endorse BDS, thus affecting not just NYU but also graduate student unions at over 15 universities, including other unions in the United States who have also passed similar pro-BDS resolutions.
  • April 21, 2016: Passed – The graduate student union at New York University passed a BDS resolution with a 2/3 vote of the 600 members who participated (out of 2,000).
