College campuses are now hotbeds for BDS activity since they are controlled by the Left. Pro-Palestinian hate groups have flourished on college campuses, and have made life for pro-Israel Jewish students unsafe. Jewish students are assaulted, abused, and marginalized should they dare express any pro-Israel views.
The anti-Semitic Democrats will see to it that no meaningful anti-BDS legislation passes in Congress, out of fear of offending their anti-Semitic constituents. Therefore, the First Amendment rights of Jewish students will continue to be violated, and their safety will continue to be jeopardized. The Trump administration must take immediate action.
No American should ever feel unsafe to express support for Israel, especially on a college campus.
DOE Investigating Anti-Israel Events at UNC, Duke
Several of the events held during the conference were organized by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), a group that has been at the center of anti-Israel controversy on many U.S. campuses. SJP branches have been known to distribute anti-Semitic propaganda and has been cited by multiple watchdog groups for fostering unsafe environments for Jewish students.
The Education Department has informed Congress that it is launching an investigation into how $235,000 in federal grants were used to fund a series of anti-Israel events that featured speakers and events tied to Palestinian terror groups organized by Duke University and the University of North Carolina.
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos informed Rep. George Holding (R., Ga.), a member of the Ways and Means Committee, that she has directed her agency to investigate how these funds were used and whether they violated grant conditions, according to a letter sent to Holding, who had initially requested an investigation into the anti-Israel conference in April.
“I am troubled by the concerns outlined in your letter,” DeVos wrote to Holding, according to a copy of that letter obtained by the Free Beacon. “In order for the Department to learn more about this matter, I have directed the Office of Postsecondary Education to examine the use of funds under this program to determine if the Consortium violated the terms and conditions of its grant, Department regulates, or the HEA. It is critical that recipients of grants use funds in accordance with statutory and regulatory requirements, as well as for purposes of the program for which they are funded.”
