Why should pro-Israel Jewish students “lay low” on an American college campus in the year 2019? Because if they don’t “lay low,” they will get beaten up!
It is the objective of the of the pro-Jihad BDS thugs to end all civilized debate about Israel. That is because they know they will lose. Instead, they would much rather resort to bullying, intimidation, and abuse against pro-Israel Jews, particularly on college campuses.
The First Amendment rights of pro-Israel Jewish Americans are being severely violated. However, many Senate Democrats will attempt to block any legislation that would help protect the First Amendment rights of pro-Israel Jewish Americans, since many Democrats are highly dependent on anti-Israel voters.
Far-left Senators such as Bernie Sanders, Diane Feinstein, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and many others believe that terrorizing pro-Israel Jewish Americans should protected under the guise of free speech. If a pro-Israel Jewish American is ever killed or severely hurt by a BDS thug, then the anti-Semitic Senate Democrats should bear significant responsibility.
“Hillel International tells Wake Forest Jewish students to ‘lay low’ during anti-Israel week,” by Jackson Richman, JNS, February 28, 2019:
Amid this week being “Palestinian Rights Awareness Week” at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C., pro-Israel campus students and Hillel professionals disagree on the appropriate approach toward countering the latest installation of anti-Israel bias. While some campus activists want to fight the initiative head on, Hillel professionals have been counseling the students to “lay low.”
The week-long initiative, promoted by Kristina Gupta—an assistant professor at the school’s Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies—“is dedicated to raising awareness about the Israeli occupation of Palestine and the importance of recognizing Palestinian rights.”
Students reached out to Hillel International for assistance on fighting back against the event, but were met with advice to let it pass without creating any additional attention.
Wake Forest junior Joshua Sokoloff told JNS that the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), Students Supporting Israel (SSI) and StandWithUs (SWU) have more of an on-campus presence than Hillel.
