...SSI sent an official complaint to Columbia officials against SJP for displaying “blatantly distasteful and anti-Semitic imagery.”
Columbia SJP further defended the depiction.
“Real anti-Semitism is a serious problem in this country, and we should spend our time addressing that instead,” they told Fox News. “It’s harder to combat anti-Semitism if we falsely conflate criticism of Israel—a state that has policies that impact real people’s lives—with an entire people. Supporting Palestinian rights—and the rights of all people—goes hand in hand with fighting anti-Semitism.”
In addition to SJP, “Israel Apartheid Week” at Columbia is being sponsored by Jewish Voice for Peace.
At the end of the day, CAMERA president and executive director Andrea Levin told JNS,
“the question is what the Jewish community is going to do to meet this accelerating, intensifying challenge.”
