McGill university student government seeks to oust Jewish representative for accepting Hillel-sponsored Israel trip

The anti-Israel Left has taken control of university campuses in Canada. As such, Jewish life on Canadian university campuses is being systematically destroyed. Now that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has officially betrayed Israel at the United Nations, look for the anti-Israel Left in Canada to become even more emboldened, and more violent, and more legitimized.

McGill university student government seeks to oust Jewish representative for accepting Hillel-sponsored Israel trip

By World Israel News, December 2, 2019:

“They take issue not with the fact that I have other involvements, but that these other involvements are associated with a political view that they personally disagree with,” the Jewish student said.

he Students’ Society of McGill University (SSMU) in Montreal, Canada has attempted to remove a Jewish student from her position on the Legislative Council over her decision to partake in a sponsored trip to Israel and the West Bank.

Second-year science student Jordyn Wright accepted an offer by the Jewish campus organization Hillel to visit Israel and the Palestinian territories, and meet with politicians, journalists and locals offering multiple perspectives. According to Wright, she was hoping to “better understand a very nuanced geopolitical conflict.”

“As a Jew, my connection to Israel is a core aspect of my identity, and I hoped that this trip would help me to experience Israel through a new lens,” Wright wrote on Friday in a widely circulated Facebook Post.

Under pressure from members of the student government who support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, SSMU called for Wright’s resignation on “Conflict of Interest” grounds.

Interrogation without warning

According to Wright, she was also interrogated by the Science Executive Committee for almost two hours with no prior warning about her decision to participate in the trip.

“Not only were the questions designed to target and intimidate me, but I was purposefully prevented from having sufficient time to find the information they wanted,” Wright said.
