thumbs-up

  • Kudos to East Carolina University’s Student Government for passing a resolution against antisemitism titled, “The Fight Against Anti-Semitism Resolution” that included the U.S. State Department definition of antisemitism. The resolution was brought to SGA’s attention due to instances of antisemitism within the ECU community including graffiti targeting Jewish students found on campus and in off campus homes of Jewish students.

An article in the student newspaper covering an on-campus SJP “Israeli Apartheid Week” event with a JVP guest speaker quoted a student demonizing Israel, saying, “The entire premise just points to the fact that the establishment of Israel was conceptualized as a white supremacist state overall.” In addition, the author of the article concluded, “By establishing the ways in which oppressive states work, we can begin to dismantle them. We cannot begin dismantling the state before addressing the problems inherent in every step of this hierarchy. Therefore, to discuss the Israeli occupation meaningfully, we must discuss it in its entirety.”

A Connecticut group called, “Promoting Enduring Peace” held an awards event on campus to give an award to BDS founder Omar Barghouti. The event was co-sponsored by SJP. At the event, Barghouti began his speech by dedicating his award “to the heroic Palestinian political prisoners in apartheid dungeons.” He further discussed support for BDS, stating that the “inclusive” movement asks people “to especially target institutions and Israelis who take part in the injustices against Palestinians or help with Israel war-making” and accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing.”
