BDS ACTIVITY (BDS EVENTS)
5/13/2015 – Two Mt. San Jacinto College student groups and two academic departments sponsored a talk by Miko Peled, who falsely accused Israel of “racism,” “brutal oppression,” “colonialism,” “terrorism,” “ethnic cleansing,” and “killing whom ever they want whenever they want,” justified terrorism against Israel, argued that Israel has illegally occupied “Palestine” since 1948, promoted BDS and advocated for a “one-state” solution, which effectively means the elimination of the Jewish state. Peled also claimed that the “Zionist Lobby,” which he said was also known as the “Jewish Lobby,” had undue influence in America, and he called the Zionist and Jewish groups promoting Israel “racist.”
