AntiSemitismWatch urges people to contact the governing elite og the University of California (UC) in support of a revised a proposed policy on intolerance to include anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism as forms of discrimination not to be tolerated on UC’s 10 campuses.
The draft document released Tuesday was applauded by Jewish organizations that had demanded more be done to protect students against anti-Semitism after several high-profile incidents, including one in which swastikas were spray-painted on a Jewish fraternity house.
It is particularly relevant that anti-Zionism is being considering the overwhelming evidence linking the BDS movement and its acolytes like Israeli Apartheid Week to the rise in anti-Semitism.
A version of the measure presented last year was rejected by Jewish groups who said it didn’t go far enough to address antisemitism on campuses.
The UC Board of Regents is scheduled to vote on the proposed “Statement of Principles Against Intolerance” at its meeting on March 23 in San Francisco.
