October 22, 2015: Campus Reform – Pro-Israel chalk defaced at South Dakota
(Description note, “Pro-Israel and pro-peace chalkings at the University of South Dakota were variously erased and adorned with spiteful ripostes early Tuesday morning…“I was expecting it to happen, [though] probably not that soon,” Orgad noted, explaining that while he is not aware of any organized opposition to Israel on campus, his group routinely encounters hostility from students when it holds demonstrations, and even when it simply sets up a table to recruit new members. “It’s hard to tell who did it; we don’t have any pro-Palestinian groups,” he said. “There is a lot of opposition [to SSI] but it’s not organized, per se.” Significantly, Orgad told Campus Reform that the swift and decisive retaliation against SSI’s chalk messages has not been visited on other controversial chalkings at USD, such as the slogans written by groups on both sides of the abortion debate that he claims have endured, unmolested, for nearly three weeks…“The pro-life chalk was left alone; the pro-choice chalk was left alone, but ours were defaced,” he said. “I know that [students] are overwhelmingly against some of the other groups’ messages, as well, but ours was targeted.”)
