Incredible un-masked anti-Semitism in our universities!
A great effort is being made to put a stop to what I believe is antisemitism at USC. There will be a demonstration at The Grove in Los Angeles on September the 7th. If that does not help, then I suggest that we end our patronizing of the school.
At the same time, there is presently an increase in antisemitism and certainly a lack of civility by Harvard and San Francisco State Unversity.
If we connect the dots, anti- Israel Saeb Erekat (Secretary-General of the Executive Committee of the PLO since 2015) studied at San Francisco State University.
Now, Harvard hires terrorist Erekat to teach Diplomacy. Harvard will have on staff someone who believes Israel should not exist, someone who in his years as a West Bank leader has not worked for peace or anything with resemblance of normality in the region! In fact, he can’t even create diplomatic relations with their “brothers” in Gaza! Yet he goes to Israel to get medical attention. Three years ago, he was being treated in Israel as he awaited a lung transplant. Imagine that!
San Franciso State University (yes we pay taxes so that the U can function) is hosting an online program with Leila Khaled, a terrorist actor in the Front for the Liberation of Palestine. She has declared that she has no problem in committing acts of terror against Jews. Don’t forget she has been involved in airplane hijacks. Again, there is nothing positive about this “person”. But the University finds it okay.
The Chancellors and the Presidents of the universities must stop this arbitrary behavior and stop antisemites. These problems must be addressed now.
If this is not overt hatred to Jews, many of which are oblivious donors who keep on giving to these schools, then I don’t know what is! It is hard to fathom that these universities can not find appropriate speakers with no history of racism, anti-Semitism nor hatred.
How many millions are foreign countries e.g. Qatar donating to the Universities?
