    "Ad Kan" exposing: The far left organizations: "breaking the silence," "Gisha," "Akevot," "Yesh Din" and "Adalah" receive millions of shekels from the funding bodies of the US protests against Israel. "Ad Kan" organization: "It is time for the Israeli government to stop the flow of funds from terrorist supporters 'Civilians' in Israel." The research department of the "Ad Kan" organization revealed today (Wednesday) that the funds that finance the front of the struggle against the State of Israel on campuses throughout the USA, finance in the State of Israel a series of radical leftist organizations such as "Breaking the Silence",...

    Dozens of foreign workers protesting changes to P.E.I.'s immigration strategy are on their fourth day of a hunger strike in downtown Charlottetown. The provincial government is cutting back on the number of workers it is nominating for permanent residency this year, from about 2,100 to about 1,600 — with a big drop in the number of hospitality workers in particular. More than 800 were nominated last year, and the plan is to nominate just 200 this year. Jaspreet Singh Sivia, one of the people who have been speaking for the protesters, accuses the government of changing the rules for people...

    Hundreds of graduates at Harvard University walked out of their commencement Thursday after the school announced 13 students who participated in the recent pro-Palestinian protests on campus would not be allowed to receive their diplomas with fellow students. Groups of graduates walked out chanting “Free, Free Palestine” and “Let them walk, let them walk” in reference to the students barred from walking at the ceremony, The Associated Press reported. A total of more than 1,000 students participated in the walkout, according to the school’s protest groups.

    The 19th century Prussian general Karl Von Clausewitz famously said: “War is not an independent phenomenon, but the continuation of politics by different means.” or as we more often hear it, “War is but politics by different means.” War is what generally happens when two (or more) sides get to a point where they can no longer peacefully coexist with the current circumstances. We’re there… How does one know a civil war is coming? Have you been on a college campus lately? 2024 is an echo of 1968, the original Summer of Love. Today, the ostensible catalyst for what we’re...

    To be a college president, you have to go through the faculty ranks with one fear: you do not want to get on the wrong side of left-wing students and left-wing faculty. They're not just Democrats; they're hard left now and are predominantly taking over the general education curriculum. It's a diversity, equity, and inclusion ideology. You see the Columbia president, someone promoted not on merit but on the idea that they are acceptable to the hard left and will continue this drift. The problem they're having is that the nation hadn't seen this. The nation just thought, "Well, it's...

    As the weather has warmed, it’s time for that time-honored tradition — protest season. Because everyone knows the plight of the disenfranchised is best solved at 70°F. Setting up winter camp in a college quad seems unpleasant — the revolution will take place at a time, place and temperature that’s convenient for America’s poetry graduate assistants. Campus protests are nothing new in America. They’ve been a feature of university life since at least the Vietnam War and beyond. And sure, it’s fun to get wrapped up in a romantic cause you only just learned about and of which you have...
  • Major Report Uncovers CCP-Linked Influence Behind Left-Wing Anti-Israel Protests in U.S.

    A report reveals that key radical left-wing organizations central in the current anti-Israel and anti-America protest movement are significantly funded and influenced by a network tied to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which seeks to advance a “revolutionary, anti-government, anti-capitalist agenda,” threatening U.S. internal stability. A major report from the Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI), published Monday, details how the Shut It Down for Palestine (SID4P) movement, which has connections to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) through the Singham Network, uses protests and media campaigns to push anti-America and anti-Israel narratives and significantly contribute to social unrest.

    History gives us conviction and guidance. Today, as we watch ravaging antisemitism and the defacing of the American flag on university campuses, prevalent examples in history of courage and bravery should spur us to respond.In 1942, German medical student Hans Scholl was awakened to the persecution of Jews in the Western world. While serving on the Eastern Front, Scholl and his war buddies, Willi Graf and Alexander Schmorell, witnessed firsthand the Nazis’ murder of innocent Polish Jewish civilians.Scholl committed to exposing the evil being done against the Jewish population. Together with Graf, Schmorell, Sophia Scholl, and Christoph Probst, he began...

    As I walked around taking photographs of the Anti-Israel encampment at Cornell University, one of the participants kept calling after me -- “Julie! Julie, right? Haven’t we met before?” It was one of the appointed mediators for the student activists. She wore a yellow vest, carried a walkie-talkie, and used any pretense she could think of to strike up a conversation with non-students to quickly discern their intentions. A week before I visited, twenty-two students and two staff members had been arrested for staging a sit-in in Day Hall, the administrative center for Cornell. Shortly before that, multiple suspensions had...

    NY Post ^ | 8/4/24
    Columbia Law students want their final exams called off … in the name of Palestine. In a recent letter, the student editors of the Columbia Law Review made a public call for the school to cancel the semester’s remaining exams and “give all students passing grades for their work throughout the semester.” “We believe that canceling exams would be a proportionate response to the level of distress our peers have been feeling,” the unnamed students wrote in an open letter. The plea comes after Columbia University, on April 30, authorized the NYPD to clear out trespassers who violently and forcibly...

They might have been, based on this investigative report from ADL America, (which JustTheNews also cited):Some of the anti-Israel protests taking place at U.S. college campuses, including the recent demonstrations at Columbia University, have been supported by organizations that traveled to communist Cuba to receive resistance training, an ADN investigation has uncovered.ADN’s investigation coincides with a recent Sunday report published by the New York Post that revealed a radical NYC based organization known as The People’s Forum familiarized anti-Israel activists with Black Lives Matter protest techniques...

    Some of the anti-Israel protests taking place at U.S. college campuses, including the recent demonstrations at Columbia University, have been supported by organizations that traveled to communist Cuba to receive resistance training, an ADN investigation has uncovered. ADN’s investigation coincides with a recent Sunday report published by the New York Post that revealed a radical NYC based organization known as The People’s Forum familiarized anti-Israel activists with Black Lives Matter protest techniques just hours before they stormed Hamilton Hall at Columbia University, and that the group was incited by Manolo De Los Santos–a radical activist organizer with deep ties to...

    Like probably most of America, I've had enough of student protests. Moreover, I'm tired of how schools are handling it. Protesting idiots call for Intifada without having the first idea of what that actually means. They sport Hamas head ware like it's grammar school Halloween day. They call for beheading of school administrators. From @thestustustudio on X:At the George Washington University Gaza Solidarity Encampment today, the protesters held a "People's Tribunal" where they put President Ellen Granberg, Provost Christopher Bracey, the Board of Trustees, @GWPolice , and many others on trial. Is it normal for students to want to hang...

    Young progressive voters in Michigan fear President Biden could lose the election to former President Trump because of left-wing backlash over Israel, according to a new report. "Michigan is up for grabs, and I did not think I'd be saying this right now. And I wish I wasn't saying this right now, but I am genuinely concerned about which way Michigan will go," a recent University of Michigan graduate, Jade Gray, told CNN's John King. Several students said Biden's failure to take a hard stance against Israel's campaign and to demand a cease-fire has lost him many younger and progressive...

    On Wednesday, the latest edition of The Economist/YouGov poll came out, and the takeaways include some rather bad news for pro-Hamas agitators on college campuses, or, as the poll puts it, "pro-Palestinian." There are also quite the telling findings about how those who plan to vote for President Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats feel about the conflict and our ally in the Middle East. Close to a majority of voters, at 49 percent, have heard "a lot" about the arrest of pro-Hamas agitators on college campuses, so they're at least staying informed on the issue. A majority of overall...

    More than two-thirds of Americans fear pro-Palestinian demonstrations at college campuses will result in violent confrontations, according to a new poll. The survey, released Wednesday by USA Today and Suffolk University, found that nearly 32 percent of Americans said they are “very concerned” the protests will end up in violence, while just more than 35 percent said they are “somewhat concerned.” Nearly 15 percent of respondents said they are “not very concerned,” and 14 percent said they are “not at all concerned.” About 3 percent were undecided, per the poll. Protests calling for a cease-fire in the ongoing Israel-Hamas war...

    ‘Pro-Palestinian protesters are backed by a surprising source: Biden’s biggest donors,’ headlined an article by Politico.. Politico’s editors are “surprised” to find the far-left demonstrations overwhelming college campuses this spring are funded by the same sources fighting to keep President Joe Biden in power. On Sunday, the Beltway magazine published an exposé on the financiers bankrolling the campus protests, for which demonstrators trained for months. “Pro-Palestinian protesters are backed by a surprising source: Biden’s biggest donors,” the headline reads. “ Joe Biden has been dogged for months by pro-Palestinian protesters calling him ‘Genocide Joe’ — but some of the groups...

    The University of North Carolina is facing criticism after instructors announced they would withhold grades from students until the school reinstated individuals suspended for pro-Palestinian demonstrations on campus. On Monday, the university at Chapel Hill confirmed reports of professors punishing students by refusing to submit grades unless the school administration ends suspensions of those who engaged in protests last week. Nick Craig, a local radio host in Wilmington, North Carolina, published a screenshot of a professor’s message to students about holding their grades hostage. “The University has suspended 15 of your and my fellow students for their participation in a...
