Anti-Semitism alive and well on college campuses

The University of California-Davis chapter of the SJP further states that the goal of the organization is to completely "dismantle" Israel. 

Former Republican presidential candidate, Gary Bauer of American Values, contends that the radical group purposely targets college students who will soon be leaders in their various fields of endeavor.

"So, I think that these radical groups think that they can win the long-term battle by spreading their false narrative on to the universities of our country," the founder of Campaign for Working Families expressed.

Bauer asserts that universities need to be judicious when it comes to instilling and enforcing speech policies.

"But when you have a regulation on your campus against hate speech, and then people are allowed to call for the destruction of Israel – essentially call for a second Holocaust – and nothing is happening to the groups that do that, that's very disturbing, and the university administration should clearly take a second look at that," the Christian leader impressed.

The SJP essay was written in response to a June op-ed from Aggies for Israel, according to Breitbart.

More campus anti-Semitism …

Meanwhile, a group that fights anti-Semitism on college campuses says that the pro-Palestinian group, SJP, is trying to create chaos at Tulane University.

After Tulane President Mike Fitts visited Israel – along with 16 other college presidents – on a benign fact-finding trip, the Students for Justice in Palestine chapter is demanding Tulane have nothing to do with Israeli universities.

AMCHA Initiative Director Tammi Rossman-Benjamin maintains that SJP is just trying to create chaos.

"They're just trying to do whatever they can to have an impact that will ultimately harm the Jewish State, since that's their goal,” Rossman-Benjamin insisted. “That's why Students for Justice in Palestine exists."

The radical group warned that if Tulane partners with “Islamophobic" Jewish schools, it would dissuade Muslim and Palestinian students from attending Tulane.

This threat was called out by Rossman-Benjamin as being nothing more than baseless rhetoric.

"It's trying whatever works – and it's a slow news cycle this summer, ‘And so, hey, why don't we just challenge this trip and say that it hurts the Muslim students on our campus? Maybe we'll drum up some sympathy that way." Rossman-Benjamin mused.

Unsurprisingly, it was discovered that Fitts and the others met with Palestinian authorities, as well, to explore ways of combating societal problems.
