April 13, 2015: The Nevada Sagebrush – SENATE PUSHES FOR SEMITIC TOLERANCE AT UNR (Description note, “Sen. emeritus Zachary Brounstein of the College of Engineering advocated for Semitic tolerance at the University of Nevada, Reno in senate resolution 82-149. Brounstein was inspired to submit the resolutions after reviewing acts of violence and hate crimes committed against Jewish students that have occurred in the last few years on college campuses. The Jewish senator speculates that this tension is a result of the conflict between Palestine and Israel, as well as from terrorist organizations associated with the region. “Although it is perfectly acceptable to disagree with the actions of a nation…, it is not acceptable to jump from to the condemnation of country to the condemnation to a race of people,” Brounstein said. The senate passed the resolution unanimously.”)
