Sign the UC Stakeholder Petition

Hat tip AMCHA Initiative

Recently, I co-authored a letter with AMCHA Initiative's Tammi Rossman-Benjamin to the University of California asking them to treat anti-Semitism with the same seriousness as they treat other bias incidents. The letter, which was signed by over 100 UC faculty members,  also asked UC to consider adopting the US State Department's definition of anti-Semitism. UC President Janet Napolitano has indicated she supports the latter request and plans to introduce it at the July Regents meeting.

To be sure, there is organized resistance to this coming from the pro-Palestinian forces on campus including students, faculty and their Jewish stooges (Jewish Voice for Peace, etc.)

You can help in having our voices heard by signing the enclosed letter to the UC administrators. It is called the UC Stakeholders' petition. If you are a student, alumna, faculty, employee or even a California tax-payer concerned about what is going on in our public universities-which you   are  paying for- you have a stake in this matter.
