Skip to comments.Grotesque Antisemitism at George Washington University. Poorly disguised as anti-Zionism, hatred of Jews has new strength on America’s campuses.

On October 11, a number of students gathered outside the George Washington University’s Jewish student center in protest of a routine event held by the student group GW for Israel. The event, focused on Israeli innovation and start-ups, was not expected to elicit controversy, let alone national media attention. The protest featured the typical (and falsely predicated) slogans often chanted by anti-Israel groups: “war criminals,” “ethnic-cleansers,” and “child murderers.” But the protesters also engaged in a chant that had not previously been heard on the George Washington University campus: “There is only one solution, Intifada revolution!”
The word “Intifada” refers to two periods in Israeli history, 1987-1993 and 2000-2005, when thousands of Israeli men, women, and children were murdered by hundreds of Palestinian terrorists. During the Intifadas, it became routine to hear weekly about buses blowing up, stabbings and shootings at marketplaces, suicide bombings in popular restaurants, and explosions at weddings and other celebratory events. When GW students call for the renewal of the Intifada, they are not offering a nuanced discourse on a complex geopolitical conflict. Rather, a call for the renewal of the Intifada is a clear endorsement of the indiscriminate murder of innocent civilians, solely for being Jews.
As a senior at the George Washington University, I found this episode shocking but not surprising. The steadily increasing prevalence of antisemitism on campuses across the country has left Jewish college students unsettled, worried, and often fearful. In my three and a half years in school thus far, incidents of antisemitism have become routine and have left Jewish students on my campus wondering not if a subsequent incident will occur but when. These incidents are sometimes (subtly) manifested as criticism of Israel, Israel’s existence, or Israeli policy, but they can also be overt, heinous acts of hate.

It’s hard to find a liberal who supports Israel.
Progressives ARE the new NAZI party.
If they could line up those that oppose them and march them into a gas chamber THEY WOULD.
democrats putting their hatred, of Jews, on display
GW is the most expensive university in the USA, but its students are one that can’t get into places like SMU in Dallas. And very high numbers of Arab students. NOW you know where the the anti-semitic behavior comes from.
I have never understood the whole antisemitism thing. Maybe I am naive but I have known and still have numerous Jewish friends that I know over 30 years. I have been to partys at their homes, I have been invited to synagogue. I worked with several Israeli exchange engineers over the years. And I have never found any of them or my friends to be less than decent caring people.
I suspect that antisemitism is learned at home. And that is sad in today’s world.
Self-hating Jews are the main instigators of Jew-hate. Been that way since at least the Maccabees. God has a sense of humor.
I always find stories like this extremely amusing. It was, after all, Jews who pushed for the 1965 Immigration Act, and have since championed open borders and unrestricted non-white immigration. Naturally, millions of Muslims have entered the country and are having a political and social impact. Those championing massive non-white immigration knew that social chaos would be the result. Essentially, they got what they wished for.
Nazis do have stripes, angled at that. Many Republicans currently support them as well. Go back in history, that is not a new phenomenon.
I always find it strange that lefists/marxists/fascists are almost universally anti-Semitic, while Jews are generally leftists. I took Jews at their word when they said “Never Again” but then they support the same politics as the last genocide. It’s bizarre.
I feel exactly the same way...I have never understood the hatred of the Jewish people...
Ever read World Without Jews by Karl Marx?
The most virulent Jew hatred ever, at least until the Nazis showed up. Summary: Survival of the Jews as a people is a side effect of capitalism.
Ted Kennedy was not Jewish.
The extremist communists and neo- Nazis (abs Soroznazi) and other enrmies of the Creator they deny —- hacc CD e always been violently anti Christian and antisemitic.
The existence of our Creator nullifies the veracity of their Narcissistic Self- importance and compulsive drive to seize power over the rest of us. (There is a god and it ain’t them)
Biblical faith traditions teach morality (in the forms of law and compassion, justice and mercy together). The commies and Nazis running much of our government and many of our colleges are violently allergic to these behavioral standards or any limitations on their conduct. (Repressing, persecuting, victimizing, and murdering other people on a mass scale are not Biblically- approved conduct — thus, they assert God is dead and religion bring the opiate of the masses.)
There is a world of difference between genuine liberals (who have mostly gone out of style) and today’s leftist overlords (whether in government or on campus). Leftists, whether communists, national socialists, regular socialists, democratic socialists, or progressivists are extremely dangerous
Can I ask an unPC, UNwoke question?
Why is there a “Jewish center”?
Isn’t that the same as the ridiculous “black student Union”?
Frankly, if we can’t have a white student Union, or Christian student center, officially sanctioned by the colleges, then all should be scrapped.
The very fact this exists means it’s a preferred group, just like the BSUs liberals universally support.
Sorry, I just don’t like hypocrisy. Why are we all upset about a sanctioned Jewish group getting protested, but not the fat chance a black group might be?
I never really understand the prejudice, either.
besides the endless guilt-tripping over Holocaust.
Jews are hard-working, smart, take care of themselves and not dependent on government largesse.
Outside the guilt-tripping group bias, I don’t understand why most are liberals.
Still can't wrap my brain around why so many Jews follow leftist dogma...it's like a Jew joining the Nazi party. But then again, Islam was highly involved in the slave trade (still is today) and the US is full of black muslims. Again...doesn't make sense -
Kennedy pushed the Hart-Seller Act, both Hart and Seller were Jewish, and Kennedy was one of their useful idiots.
