BDS and Campus Anti-Semitism: There Is a Link

Hat tip Investigative Project on Terrorism

"One recent example occurred on April 15, when the City University of New York Doctoral Students' Council passed a resolution calling for an academic boycott of Israel, 42-19. Weeks earlier, a CUNY professor and BDS advocate claimed that the killing of Palestinians in Gaza "reflects Jewish values." On CUNY campuses, the New York Observer reports, Jewish students were harassed, with "Jews out of CUNY" uttered in at least one instance, and a professor who wears a yarmulke was called a "Zionist pig."

Unlike  my previous posting this morning on the nutty comments made by a visiting professor at MIT drawing a link between Islamophobia and Global Warming, here is a link that can be proven-the link between the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement against Israel, and campus anti-Semitism. The Investigative Project on Terrorism has the details. The article is based largely on the recent study by the AMCHA Initiative as well as several recent events on campuses across the nation.

As I have said many times, the focal point for anti-Semitism in America is on our college campuses.
