  • November 1, 2016 – University of North Carolina at Charlotte Jewish Student (Neili) “As a Jew, I am nothing short of terrified when I see a Nazi flag displayed in a dorm room…How are Jewish students supposed to feel safe on campus if the administration refuses, time after time, to condemn anti-Semitism? I don’t feel represented in this community. I don’t feel protected as a Jewish student at our great university.” Read More
  • September 2014, Jewish University of North Carolina Charlotte Student (Neili) “I feel like I am being attacked because I wear my Star of David out in public, I wear shirts with the word Israel on it or shirts with Hebrew lettering, I have Israel stickers on my laptop…[I have been] spit at…I have been called a terrorist, baby killer, woman killer, [told that] I use blood to make matzah and other foods, Christ killer, occupier, and much more…[a female student] looked at me with a straight face and said to ‘go burn in an oven’”  Read more

HISTORICAL
10/5/16 – A Nazi flag with a swastika was hung from Laurel Hall, a freshman dorm on campus.
ANTISEMITIC EXPRESSION: DEMONIZATION;
DELEGITIMIZATION
1/13/17 – 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.”

Niner Times – Op-Ed: Religious Myth
(Description note, “Israeli retaliation is political, seeking to control, corral, and eliminate an occupied population. The conflict in Israel and Palestine is hardly a conflict. A conflict entails two sides of equal military capacity; but 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.”)
