Kudos To…

thumbs-up

  • Kudos to NYU President Hamilton for his strong statement against the Grand Union Boycott vote stating, “A boycott of Israeli institutions…is at odds with the University’s position…NYU will not be closing its academic program in Tel Aviv, and divestment from Israeli-related investments is not under consideration.”

 An article in the campus online paper Niner Times demonized Israel, stating that “Israeli retaliation is political, seeking to control, corral, and eliminate an occupied population” and accused Israel of settler-colonialism, remarking that “this ‘conflict’ is a heavily-tilted process of settler-colonialism. Settler-colonialism, according to Patrick Wolfe, necessarily seeks the elimination of the native – in this case, the Palestinian.”

The graffiti was part of a spate of cases of antisemitic vandalism in the vicinity of the school. One of the symbols off-campus was accompanied with the words “No Jews allowed,” leading police to believe the swastika-like symbols were indeed meant to mimic the Nazi symbol.
