Anti-Jewish thugs such as Linda Sarsour and Roger Waters are legitimizing hatred of Jews on college campuses. As a result, life on college campuses for Jewish students is becoming increasingly unsafe. Urgent legislation to protect the civil rights of pro-Israel Jewish students is urgently needed.
80 Groups Applaud UMass for Initial Steps Over Anti-Israel ‘Political Rally,’ but Urge Immediate Action, The Algemeiner, April 30, 2019:
A group of 80 organizations that called on the University of Massachusetts in Amherst to refrain from sponsoring a political event featuring supporters of Israel boycotts has applauded the school’s chancellor on Tuesday for his initial response, but urged him to take further, immediate action.
The coalition first raised objections last week in a letter to UMass Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy, denouncing the sponsorship by three university departments of the May 4th event, “Not Backing Down: Israel, Free Speech, & the Battle for Palestinian Rights.”
The panel discussion — which will feature supporters of the controversial boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel — is being organized by a foundation led by Sut Jhally, a UMass professor and chair of the school’s Department of Communication.
Speakers will include former Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters, Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour, and Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill. The three are “outspoken anti-Israel activists who have engaged in antisemitic expressions including charges that Jewish Americans are more loyal to Israel than America, calls for the elimination of the Jewish state, comparisons of Israelis to Nazis, and other false and defamatory accusations,” the groups charged in their first letter.
Anti-Semites Roger Waters and Linda Sarsour fly on a private plane to UMass to spread hatred of Israel.
