JEWISH AND PRO-ISRAEL COMMUNITY TO CA ATTORNEY GENERAL KAMALA HARRIS: ‘WE’RE TROUBLED YOU ARE UNWILLING TO RESPOND TO OUR SERIOUS CONCERNS’

AG Harris, now a candidate for U.S. Senate, needs to respond to legitimate concerns about professor’s antisemitic webpage on California State University Northridge server

_____

 

TAKE ACTION:  Email Attorney General Kamala Harris at [email protected] (please add in email addresses [email protected], [email protected]) and ask that Harris respond swiftly to concerns about the illegality of CSUN Mathematics Professor David Klein’s use of the University website to promote his antisemitic “Boycott Israel” webpage, concerns raised by AMCHA Initiative more than one year ago and shared by 24 Jewish and pro-Israel organizations.

Twenty-four organizations with hundreds of thousands of members and supporters wrote yesterday to California Attorney General Kamala Harris demanding she respond to evidence that California State University Northridge (CSUN) mathematics professor David Klein has illegally used taxpayer resources to promote his politically-motivated “Boycott Israel Resources Page,” aspects of which meet the definition of antisemitism adopted by the U.S. State Department. A year ago, AMCHA Initiative presented substantial evidence to Harris that Klein may be in violation of state and federal laws.  Harris has yet to acknowledge the request.

“Many members of the Jewish community and concerned citizens of this state are appalled that a mathematics professor at a California state university is permitted to use the taxpayer-funded university website to post antisemitic material and promote an illegal boycott of Israel, and they are troubled that the state Attorney General is unwilling to even respond to these serious concerns,” wrote the organizations. “Klein’s blatant abuse of power and taxpayer dollars must be stopped.”

The organizations joined AMCHA in urging Harris to do one of the following as soon as possible:

 

If Klein is in violation of state law, then please ensure that his “Boycott Israel Resource Page” is removed from the CSUN server and that Professor Klein is appropriately sanctioned for his illegal behavior.

If Klein has not violated California law, then please publicly clarify for the citizens of California why the substantial evidence presented in the letter that was sent to you one year ago fails to demonstrate that Klein has violated state or federal law.

 

A full copy of the letter signed by the 24 organizations can be found HERE.

A template letter you may use (and modify):

 


 

Dear Attorney General Harris,

 

You recently received a letter signed by 24 Jewish organizations who are troubled that you have not responded to their concerns about California State University Mathmatics Professor David Klein’s use of the taxpayer-funded CSUN website to promote his politically-motivated and antisemitic views.

It’s been more than a year since AMCHA Initiative provided you with substantial evidence indicating potential violations of state and federal laws.

As a taxpayer and voter, I join AMCHA Initiative and the other organizations in urging you to do one of the following as soon as possible:

If Klein is in violation of state law, then please ensure that his “Boycott Israel Resource Page” is removed from the CSUN server and that Professor Klein is appropriately sanctioned for his illegal behavior.

If Klein has not violated California law, then please publicly clarify for the citizens of California why the substantial evidence presented in the letter that was sent to you one year ago fails to demonstrate that Klein has violated state or federal law.

Thank you.


 

Thank you for your actions on behalf of Jewish students!

 

Warm regards,

AMCHA Initiative
