Create Hate Toward Jews on Campus Than ‘Classic Anti-Semitism’

Forty-four percent of the anti-Israel acts with intent to harm involved attempts to censor pro-Israel speech, such as when anti-Israel students attempted to prevent people from entering a speech by Israeli United Nations Ambassador Danny Danon at Columbia University; the anti-Israel students also heckled Danon several times throughout the speech.
“When Israel’s ambassador to the UN, Mr. Danny Danon, came to speak at an SSI event, BDS [Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions] activists blocked the entrance to the auditorium, physically preventing people from entering and intimidating those who managed to get in,” a Columbia student told AMCHA. “During the ambassador’s 25-minutes speech, the BDS activists disrupted him seven times with calls to Boycott Israel…the BDS activists’ message was clear: The only freedom of speech worthy of protection is their own. Those who disagree, or dispute their view of the world, would be violently disrupted.”
