Brown University committee on corporate responsibility votes in favor of boycott of Jews

Oh, the irony. Inhumanity, disregard for human life, racism and bigotry in the name of “corporate responsibility.” Uniformly left-wing American universities are repeating the actions of the German universities during the rise and reign of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (the Nazi Party).

The Left’s war against the Jews is raging on American college campuses. A strong pro-Israel Jewish organization is urgently needed in the United States. An organization that knows how to fight a war, unlike the crop of incompetent cowards that lead American Jews today. American Jewish students who support Israel should not be forced to endure intimidation and marginalization on their own campuses.

Brown University committee on corporate responsibility votes in favor of BDS

The vote occurred months after students voted overwhelmingly in favor of a referendum, calling on the school to separate itself from companies that conduct business with Israel.

By JNS, December 2, 2019:

The Advisory Committee on Corporate Responsibility in Investment Policies (ACCRIP) at Brown University in Providence, R.I., voted on Monday in favor of the BDS movement that aims to boycott Israel.

The final tally of the committee was six in favor, two against and one abstention.

The ACCRIP, which consists of university students, faculty, staff and alumni, vote on resolutions surrounding “ethical and moral issues or issues of alleged social harm with respect to the activities of corporations in which the University is an investor,” according to its website.

The resolution consisted of the following language:

“We recommend that the Brown Corporation exclude from Brown’s direct investments, and require Brown’s separate account investment managers to exclude from their direct investments, companies identified as facilitating human rights violations in Palestine. In addition, the Investment Office will share with all investment managers the University’s desire to adhere to this investment philosophy. We recommend that the Corporation and Brown’s separate account investment managers maintain the withdrawal of investments from said companies until they cease to engage in social harm … ”

The vote occurred several months after Brown students voted overwhelmingly in favor of a referendum, calling on the school to separate itself from companies that conduct business with the State of Israel.

Brown University has 1,000 Jewish undergraduates and 200 Jewish graduates, according to Hillel InternationalChabad at Brown also serves Jewish students on campus.
