New Campaign to fight antisemitism: ‘Jew Hatred On Campus’

Share
Source: frontpagemag

A new campaign has been
launched by the David Horowitz Freedom Center to combat rapidly growing
antisemitism on college campuses in the United States.  The campaign,
“Jew Hatred on Campus” aims to educate the public about the antisemitic acts
occurring throughout the nation’s colleges and universities and calls on
university administrators to withdraw campus privileges from the hate groups
responsible.

 

As one of its first initiatives, Jew Hatred on Campus has
compiled a list of the 10 U.S. campuses having the worst antisemitic activity
in 2014.  Universities included in the top 10 played host to numerous
incidents of anti-Jewish acts, such as Israeli Apartheid Week (a week-long
event that demonizes the Jewish state); interrupting university activities by staging
mock “checkpoints” on campus; campus speakers that call for the destruction of
the Jewish state; and verbal or physical harassment and violence against Jewish
and pro-Israel students.  These antisemitic incidents occur on university
property, often with the support of university funds, despite the fact that
such behavior is explicitly forbidden under campus codes of conduct.

 

The top 10 colleges in 2014 cited by the group are shown in the
table below. Details on why these institutions made the “Top 10” can be found
at www.JewHatredOnCampus.org
The David Horowitz Freedom Center plans to contact each of the named
institutions to discuss its findings and to offer assistance in helping them to
rectify this serious situation.  The group plans to update its analysis
and publish a similar report naming the worst offenders each year.

 

“We made the decision to form ‘Jew Hatred on Campus’ to expose
antisemitic student groups who support or are associated with known terrorist
organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah, and which call for the destruction
of the Jewish State,” said Jew Hatred on Campus founder, David Horowitz. “These
activities against Jewish and pro-Israel students would not be tolerated by
university administrators if they were committed against students from any
other ethnic group.  But because Jews are the target, they have been
largely ignored. It is an obligation of university administrators to recognize
and condemn acts of antisemitism by campus hate groups and to withdraw campus
privileges and university support from them.”

 

The David Horowitz Freedom Center is an advocacy group that is
dedicated to the defense of free societies whose moral, cultural and economic
foundations are under attack by enemies both secular and religious, at home and
abroad.

 

Launched in 2015 by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, the Jew
Hatred on Campus campaign aims to educate the public on the antisemitic acts
occurring throughout the nation’s higher learning institutions and calls on
administrators to remove campus privileges and university support from hate
groups. For more information on the Jew Hatred on Campus campaign, visit www.JewHatredOnCampus.org.
