Anti-Israel groups threaten violence, shout kike and dirty Jew at University of Michigan

Just last week we talked about the Future Leaders of Israel’s pro-Israel campus initiative and why it is imperative that a stand be made on American college and university campuses to combat the anti-Semitism existing there. Well, it didn’t even take a week to support that assertion.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, a pro-Israel student received death threats and others have allegedly been called “kikes” and “dirty Jews” by backers of the virulently anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which aims to delegitimize the Jewish state through economic means. ” University of Michigan police were first contacted last week after two pro-Palestinian activists shouted “threats of violence” at a student who refused to support their boycott initiative during a “sit-in” at the student government’s headquarters.”

What are we allowing our college campuses to become? And has the Jewish community actually become so deaf that its members will continue to allow their children to be exposed to these acts? Or perhaps the Jewish-American community wholeheartedly supports the BDS movement?

And is this the type of behavior that campus administrations accept?

Kenneth Marcus, a former staff director at the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and currently general counsel of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law told the Free Beacon he has contacted high-level university officials and stated, “Our biggest concern is these Jewish students might be vulnerable to a violent criminal attack, and we’re very concerned about whether the university is taking that seriously enough.”

However, it’s not an isolated incident at the campus of Ann Arbor. The university has been under fire from campus activists and others since at least December when it was accused of taking inadequate action after pro-Palestinian activists posted 1,500 anti-Israel “eviction” notices on the doors of pro-Israel students and Jews – as was done here locally at Florida Atlantic University. Further, the Beacon reports the University of Michigan has allowed known pro-Hamas activists to openly organize riots on their campus and create an environment in which pro-Israel students had their lives threatened according to a high-level official with a prominent pro-Israel organization.

What does the University of Michigan have to say? University of Michigan spokesman Rick Fitzgerald—declined multiple requests to comment on the death threats and violent rhetoric from activists, saying the school encourages “students to report them to police.” “This is activism of students with their student government,” he said. The BDS activists “do not believe their voices were heard.”

He went on to say, ““The university has not been advocating any position, and added that there are “heated emotions on both sides.” Sure Rick, you can bet if anyone hurled an offensive insult towards black or Arab students, Eric Holder and Barack Obama would be there decrying “hate crimes.”

The Jewish people have been run out of just about every country in the world, constantly persecuted. I suppose they thought there would be sanctuary here in America? Nah, their historic Islamic foes have followed them here and through lies, deceit and alliances with American academia — and even some complicit Jews — are being enabled to continue their quest for Jewish extermination. So which bumper sticker shall prevail — “Coexist” or “Never Again?”
