Emory Pro-Palestinian Students Call to Boycott Jewish Organizations

https://atlantajewishtimes.timesofisrael.com/emory-pro-palestinian-students-call-to-boycott-jewish-organizations/

Jewish organizations on- and off-campus urged the university to punish Emory Students for Justice in Palestine (ESJP), the group that posted the fake notices on dormitory doors on the Emory Clairmont Campus, at the Woodruff Residential Center, and at the off-campus Emory Point apartments.

Pro-Palestinian students, contending that “right-wing extremist groups are smearing student activists,” called for the university community to boycott several Jewish organizations on the Emory campus.

“We call on Emory University to cease validating the bigoted smear campaign and to discipline students and other Emory community members that are complicit in the ongoing harassment. We further call on all community members to avoid endorsing or co-sponsoring events and activities with Emory Hillel, the Zionist Organization of America, EIPAC [Emory-Israel Public Affairs Committee], Emory Eagles for Israel, Emory Chabad or others complicit in this activity until they rescind and curtail their ongoing harassment campaign,” said a statement by the Emory Students for Justice in Palestine on April 5, which was followed by the names of dozens of supporters from inside and outside the university.

The flyers appeared April 2, during an annual Israel Apartheid Week protest. Similar flyers have appeared on campuses around the country in recent years.

The official-looking notices advised: “We regret to inform you that your suite is scheduled for demolition in three days.”

Want to tell us again that anti-Zionism is not anti-semitism. As far as I know, NONE of these students are Israelis.

1. people rightfully complained about a hateful, bigoted flyer

And are accused of harassment.

That's right out of the playbook. They are not fooling anyone.

2. If my child attended that school

 

I would have pulled them out, sued them for all the money paid and then for pain and suffering for having to find another school where my child felt safe. What a craphole Emory obviously is.

3. I doubt the University had any idea this would happen

They know perfectly well what this will do to their world-wide reputation if allowed to go unanswered. Their undergrad, medical and law schools are among the country's best. I think they will not leave this uncommented.
