It is not a surprise that a Jew-hating conference would occur in Ilhan Omar’s neck of the woods. The pro-Palestinian Left has made American universities dangerous for Jewish students. They have turned American universities into breeding grounds for anti-Semitic hate and violence.
The Democrat Party refuse to take any action against the pro-Palestinian Left, out of fear of angering their far-Left constituents. They claim that such action would be an attack on the First Amendment. They are lying. The First Amendment does not apply to incitement or violence. One day a Jewish student is going to get killed on an American college campus. #Jexodus.
Israel-advocacy groups urge cancellation of ‘anti-Semitic,’ pro-Palestinian conference at University of Minnesota
The National Students for Justice in Palestine will hold its conference the first three days of November. Canary Mission found that attendees at last year’s conference “endorsed violence, showed support for terror and spread anti-Semitism at both the conference and on social media.”
By JNS, September 24, 2019:
Amid increasing concerns over Israel-related anti-Semitism found on college campuses, the anti-Israel group National Students for Justice in Palestine announced its upcoming national conference at the University of Minnesota from Nov. 1-3.
The NSJP says that the conference is titled “Beyond Struggle: From Roots to Branches Towards Liberation,” and recognizes the “support for the Palestinian cause is increasing within mainstream politics,” noting the inflammatory words and actions of Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). The University of Minnesota is in Omar’s district.
According to NSJP, their national conference will attempt to achieve the following goals: recognize the current political climate and build on the visibility of Palestine; bridge the grassroots and grasstops; articulate the full history of Palestine as intertwined with the future of liberation; and reaffirm the fullness of Palestinian liberation.
Last year, the SJP chapter at the University of Minnesota sponsored a pro-BDS resolution that passed a student-wide referendum. That resolution was condemned by university’s president, Benjie Kaplan, who said that the resolution could have a “harmful impact to our campus climate,” and that the BDS movement fails to delineate “between opposition to the policies of the government of Israel and opposition to the existence of Israel.”
WATCH: The relentless demonization of Israel by the pro-Palestinian Left is what is driving the anti-Semitic attacks in the United States, especially on American college campuses.
