Trouble Brewing at Columbia

Hat tip Campus Reform



Danny Danon, the Israeli ambassador to the U, is scheduled to speak at Columbia University on February 13. Look for a disruption by the forces of Students for Justice in Palestine, Jewish Voice for Peace, and others.

And it couldn't happen in a worse place.

In 2015, Algemeiner listed Columbia as number one when it came to anti-Semitism.

This is a situation that bears watching, and I hope the university will have security ready. Make no mistake: SJP and JVP use brown shirt tactics against anyone who supports or represents Israel. They will be emboldened by the event at UC Berkeley and the weak response by the university. They will also be emboldened by the unrest surrounding the ascension of Donald Trump to the White House.

I have sent a letter of support to the Facebook page of Students Supporting Israel.
