Hillel, the softest, weakest Jewish advocacy group on campus. How many times they stood with Jew-haters and annihilationists? And as I have warned time and time again, such weakness and pathos will not save you.

“‘SJP’ blasts NY state uni Muslim chaplain for supporting Hillel,” JTA, May 10, 2018:
JTA – Stony Brook University’s Muslim chaplain is under fire for standing up for the campus Hillel against an attack by a member of the university’s Students for Justice in Palestine chapter.
The SJP accused chaplain Sanaa Nadim of a “heinous level of betrayal to the Palestinian people” for supporting a statement calling for tolerance after an SJP member called for Hillel to be expelled from campus.
The dispute was touched off by comments made by Rakia Syed, a member of SJP and a senior at the state university, to the campus newspaper, The Statesman.
“We want Zionism off this campus, so we want Hillel off this campus,” said Syed. “What we want is a proper Jewish organization that allows Jews to express their faith, have sabbath – everything like that, that are not Zionists, that doesn’t support Israel.”
The comments came in an article about tension between SJP and Seawolves for Israel, a student club supported by Stony Brook Hillel, over an information table sent up in the Student Activities Center for Israel’s 70th Independence Day last month. During the event, Hillel students handed out free snacks and commemorative T-shirts, while SJP members chanted and held up signs saying “Zionism is Terrorism,” according to The Statesman.
In response to Syed’s comments and other comments by anti-Israel students, The Interfaith Center at Stony Brook University, representing several religious groups on campus, issued a statement calling for campus religious groups to respect each other’s views.
“While we do not expect students or student organizations to agree with everything that other groups stand for or advocate or believe, we do expect that they respect the rights of those students to observe their faith, hold by their beliefs, and celebrate their culture and identity on our campus,” the statement said.
The campus Islamic Society and Muslim Student Association signed the Interfaith Center statement.
The Students for Justice in Palestine responded in a statement saying that the group “is and will always be against Zionism. We are attacking neither the religion of Judaism nor its practice, but the political ideology of Zionism.” It defined Zionism as “the creation of a Jewish state on top of the pre-existing Palestinian state, and maintaining such a state.”…
