We’ve all seen the video of the Muslim Student Association student at UC San Diego, who, during their anti-Israel week’s events attended a David Horowitz lecture and said she was “for” Nasrallah’s statement that all the Jews should gather in Israel so as to make their extermination a simpler task.
The problem, unfortunately, is not only what this woman, an officer of the MSA, believes, it is that many universities across North America have permitted her and her colleagues to run week-long propaganda-fests using names like “Israel Apartheid Week” on their campuses. These highly charged events have actually created a class of victim on these campuses. These are Jewish students in general, and in particular the majority who do not align themselves with the MSA, MSU or any of the anti-Israel groups.
I’ve just come across this letter written by a UC San Diego Jewish student following their campus’s anti-Israel week. It describes how the university alertly responded when it was felt that anti-black racism was rearing its ugly head, but has done nothing in response to the marginalization of Jewish students resulting in a nod of the head from an MSA member regarding extermination of Jews.
Nobody should pretend to be surprised. What is happening across North American campuses is happening with the consent and even collusion of university administrators.
