By condemning President Trump’s executive order to protect Jewish students on campus, J-Street is saying that Jewish students who support Israel should be marginalized, abused, bullied, and assaulted by the anti-Israel Left. Israel needs to designate J-Street as an anti-Israel hate group, and ban all of it’s members from entering Israel. Sick lowlifes.
Trump’s Executive Order Is A Cynical, Harmful Measure Designed To Suppress Free Speech On College Campuses, Not Fight Anti-Semitism:
By J Street, December 12, 2019:
In response to reports that President Trump plans to sign an executive order related to anti-Semitism on college campuses, J Street’s President Jeremy Ben-Ami released the following statement:
“This executive order, like the stalled congressional legislation it is based on, appears designed less to combat anti-Semitism than to have a chilling effect on free speech and to crack down on campus critics of Israel. J Street is committed to fighting all forms of anti-Semitism — and we feel it is misguided and harmful for the White House to unilaterally declare a broad range of nonviolent campus criticism of Israel to be anti-Semitic, especially at a time when the prime driver of anti-Semitism in this country is the xenophobic, white nationalist far-right.
“Kenneth S. Stern, the expert who drafted the definition of anti-Semitism adopted by this executive order, has publicly opposed its application to college campuses. In opposing the legislation that forms the basis for this executive order, Stern wrote in The New York Times that ‘If this bill becomes law…students and faculty members will be scared into silence, and administrators will err on the side of suppressing or censuring speech.’
Trump's executive order is a cynical, harmful measure designed to suppress free speech on college campuses, not fight anti-Semitism.

re Trump's new policy of denying colleges funds if they permit anti-Zionist speech, which is to say, virtually all Palestinian political speech. I wrote about the absurdity of equating anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism a while back https://t.co/cVORDn2xhm
