college scene (CalState-Los Angeles)A number of student organizations at a California state university are demanding more funding for all students groups, except those "aligned with Zionist ideology."

The group at California Polytechnic State calls itself the Drylongso Collective and is led by the Black Student Union. In response to its request, the pro-Israel AMCHA Initiative has joined 59 other organizations in writing to Cal Poly President Jeffrey Armstrong, asking him to take immediate action.

"We asked the university president to make a statement that he would protect all students from peer-on-peer harassment equally, regardless of their opinion, or their belief, or their legally-protected status," AMCHA Initiative Director Tammi Rossman-Benjamin tells OneNewsNow.

She says it is important for President Armstrong to reaffirm that each student, especially Zionists and those supporting Israel, will be protected.

"Students believe in their heart of hearts ... that they are not equal," Rossman-Benjamin submits. "They believe that if push comes to shove, the university will not protect them as it will protect other students, and therefore, that knowledge will actually prevent them from speaking up."

The school has already announced that Zionist groups will not be excluded from additional funding, because to do so would be a violation of federal law.
