Hat tip Jew Hatred on Campus
Recently, the blog, Jew Hatred on Campus, which is part of David Horowitz's Freedom Center published a list of the Top Ten Most Anti-Semitic campuses in the US based on numerous incidents of anti-Semitic activity. Much of the blame for that activity was placed on the national student group, Students for Justice in Palestine, founded by UC Berkeley professor Hatem Bazian (below).
He's the one with the mic in case you're wondering.
This has resulted in JHC sending letters to the presidents of these universities asking them to take positive action to eliminate the problem. Below is the letter to UCLA Chancellor Gene Block and a response from his office.
In addition, here is the correspondence between JHC and Cornell University.
From these letters, what jumps out at me is that universities are not willing to tackle the problem head on. That would begin by dealing SJP-either force them to act civilly on campus or kick them off-both the club and their members when they act out.
It also jumps out at me that letter-writing is not going to be the solution. Not that I don't support it, I do. It puts the university on notice and documents the complaints. The ultimate solution, however, is going to have to involve lawyers and hitting the universities where it hurts them most-in the pocketbook.
Are you listening, Donors?
