Lisa Marie Mendez, a University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) student and employee at the UCLA Medical Center, has made her extreme distaste for “fucking Zionist pigs” crystal clear this past month in her rant against Jews on Facebook.
The BDS liberals at Vassar, like the Party in George Orwell’s 1984, want you to imagine a vision of the future where they stamp their boots on an idealistic, human face.
It is ominous that Vassar College does not allow a healthy intellectual debate to flourish on campus, which requires even more persistent care-taking than the weeds on the campus lawn. Students should be given space to grow on campus, but they must not be allowed to grow so out of control that they conceal those who bring vandalism and handsaws into Main Building, and with them, the seeds of academic destruction.
Extremely sad. We have now added to the college checklist for my son “a verifiable commitment to academic freedom and freedom of speech.” Those things are more important than food selection in the cafeteria and rock-climbing walls.
I have now tossed your music into my “Never Play Again” folder alongside Pink Floyd, Elvis Costello, Carlos Santana and Brian Eno.
You sad old man. I hope your hate keeps you warm at night.
There are lies, there are damned lies, and there is Palestinian news.
It hasn’t gone down well. VICE News speaks to a member of the union’s national executive about why he opposed the motion and the backlash that has followed.
Prosecutor rules that Austrian hair stylist’s anti-Semitic Facebook posts are a legitimate way to criticize Israel.
For most of my life I dared to hope that in the aftermath of the greatest racial atrocity in the history of mankind, Europe had risen above its Jew-hatred.
I was, apparently, wrong. And that hatred does not stop with fringe groups. It reaches right into the heart of Europe’s elite, into the offices of the leaders of Austria’s judicial system.
Austria has now added itself to the list of countries I am unable to visit, especially with my family. And I must plead with my fellow Jews who are living there: run, haverim. Take your families and all you can carry with you. Leave and do not look back. Darkness is descending upon Austria again.
JNS.org – Last month, in a breathtaking display of anti-Semitism reminiscent of Nazi Germany, members of the student government at South Africa’s Durban University of Technology (DUT) called for the expulsion of all Jewish students from their campus. The very next day, halfway around the world, the student government at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) engaged in a similar display of anti-Jewish bigotry, nearly denying a highly qualified young woman a position on the student judiciary board after four student representatives […]
There may be quite well-intentioned people in the movement who are genuinely concerned about specific policies of the Netanyahu administration who hate neither Israel or Jews. But we cannot for their sake tolerate a movement that has become the vehicle for people who would see Israel destroyed and Jews made pariahs.
BDS has become a global vector of anti-Semitism. It is time for those in the movement who respect the right of Israel to exist and who are not anti-Semites to leave. Continuing to identify with this festering pustule of hatred is to become hatred itself.
