Another year of terror, and harassment, and intimidation for American Jewish students has come to an end. The situation for Jewish students on campus has reached a point of crisis. The pro-Palestinian Left has made university campuses unsafe for pro-Israel Jewish students.
The immoral and anti-Semitic House Democrats will likely block any meaningful anti-BDS legislation. Therefore American Jewish groups must engage President Trump. President Trump must take action to keep American Jewish students safe on campus before someone is severely hurt or even killed.
BDS Activists Police Israel Events, Normalize Antisemitism, Middle East Monitor, Alexander Joffe, May 29, 2019:
The academic year ended with BDS-led policing of student and faculty connections to Israel, including overseas study, events, and clubs. At the same time the normalization of antisemitism by BDS-connected politicians and academics expanded. Ludicrous claims regarding Jews, Israel and Palestinians complement accusations that Jews and Israel are ‘whites’ and ‘white supremacists.’ BDS led antisemitism has thus aligned completely with ascendant racialist narratives. As these have spread from campus to politics and increasingly the corporate world, the threats to Jews and Israel expand.
The most prominent aspect of BDS in May was the expanded policing of campus expressions of support for Israel. This took several forms. At DePaul University the faculty council officially condemned a faculty member after writing an op-ed in which he expressed the idea that there should not be a Palestinian state. Calling the statement “morally objectionable,” the faculty council went on to ‘reaffirm’ the faculty member’s freedom of speech. Local Palestinian students claimed that they were made ‘unsafe’ by the op-ed. The university provost also condemned the op-ed.
