(Comments by Tammi Benjamin who co-authored the letter)
As you will see in his letter to us, Yudof goes to great lengths to minimize our concerns about the safety of Jewish students on UC campuses. He also completely ignores our charge that there is an egregious anti-Jewish double standard among UC administrators and Regents, who, for example, have shown extreme sensitivity and responsiveness to the emotional distress that a Compton Cookout or noose might cause African American students, but have virtually ignored the long-standing and intolerable harassment and intimidation of Jewish students through anti-Semitic graffiti, numerous speakers and events on many UC campuses that demonize Jews and support terrorism against Israel, divestment campaigns, etc.
Please feel free to write to one of the following in support of our Letter and the 12 courageous Jewish organizations that signed it:
UC President Mark Yudof: President@ucop.edu
UC Regents: firstname.lastname@example.org
LA Times: email@example.com (Word limit 150)
