Kudos To…

thumbs-up

  • Kudos to San Diego State University Associated Students (A.S.) for passing “A Resolution to Condemn Anti-Semitism.” In passing this resolution, A.S. formally adopted the State Department definition of antisemitism, which includes demonization, double standards, and delegitimization of Israel. They recognized, “that the Jewish people, like all peoples, have a collective right to self-determination” and condemned attempts to “undermine” these rights.

According to the Daily Northwestern, during the event, Pierce accused Israel of “brown washing” and “black washing” i.e., showcasing diverse individuals in order to hide Israel’s “racism.” Pierce additionally demonized Israel, stating, “Within the Jewish community is this question of, should we have a Jewish state or shouldn’t we? There also needs to be discussion of what kind of Jewish state is Israel, and right now, it’s a white supremacist one.”
