The American arm of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is once against showing its anti-Semitic tendencies. The pro-Palestinian student group has been accused of compiling lists of Jewish students at New York University, among others.
A report was presented to the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee this week at a meeting which aimed to address the effects of BDS on US campuses. The report included evidence that the pro-Palestinian group were collecting the personal details of Jewish students at several US Universities.
If the reports are true then it shows a clear and systematic singling-out of Jewish students in a shocking revelation that borders on intimidation.
Breitbart reported in July that Jewish students are the most persecuted student group on US campuses and it is clear that the actions of SJP are fuelling this. In 2014 SJP posted ‘mock eviction letters’ through the doors of Jewish students.
Breitbart reported the following: “Anti-Semitic activity “was twice as likely to occur on campuses where BDS [the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign] was present, eight times more likely to occur on campuses with at least one active anti-Zionist student group such as SJP [Students for Justice in Palestine], and six times more likely to occur on campuses with one or more faculty boycotters,” …. Instead of just boycotting Israel, the anti-Zionists are now boycotting Jewish students,”
It shows that the pro-Palestinian front that is used by SJP is merely a cover for their real issue; hate fuelled anti-Semitism.
