A Syracuse University professor was threatened by an anonymous email sent to her that contained hostile, anti-Semitic language and referenced the Holocaust.
Genevieve García de Müeller, a professor of writing, rhetoric and composition, told The Daily Orange that she received the message around 10:40 a.m. The email, sent via anonymousemail, told her to get in the oven where you belong. It ended by using an anti-Semitic slur.
The subject line of the email read JEW.
Müeller said she called the Department of Public Safety after receiving the email. DPS directed her to the Syracuse Police Department because the incident occurred while she was off-campus, she said. She also tweeted a screenshot of the email sent to her at about noon on Tuesday.
One of the founders of Extinction Rebellion was plunged in controversy on Wednesday over remarks in which he allegedly questioned the significance of the Holocaust.
Roger Hallam, a former organic farmer in south Wales who co-founded the global activist movement, described the Holocaust as just another f***ery in human history, according to Zeit, a leading German newspaper.
Extinction Rebellions German chapter issued an immediate statement distancing itself explicitly from the remarks and saying Mr Hallam was no longer welcome in Germany.
Mr Hallam has previously come under fire for a speech he gave at an Amnesty International event earlier this year in which he compared the climate emergency to Auschwitz.
It gets worse by the day. Jews are under attack throughout the world.
In a riveting and sad New York Times op-ed, Blake Flayton, a student at George Washington University and a gay abortion rights advocate and environmentalist, explained why his fellow progressives call him a baby killer and apartheid enabler. Like 95 percent of Jews, according to Gallup, the op-eds author has a favorable view of Israel.
George Washington University has been in the news lately for a blatant kind of anti-Semitism. A pro-Palestinian student was captured on video, saying, Were going to f**king bomb Israel, bro. F**k out of here, Jewish pieces of s**t. The student, who says she was intoxicated, has apologized profusely and claimed she didnt even know why I said that. I take her at her word. But the line between Zionist and Jew can be thin in anti-Israel discourse. In vino veritas.
It remains only to note that blaming the Jewish state for every species of injustice is a feature of the campus anti-Israel movement, not an anomaly. At the City University of New York in 2015, multiple Students for Justice in Palestine chapters signed a statement against CUNYs Zionist administration. The topics? High tuition and low wages for campus workers. Jewish Voice for Peace has since 2017 been running a Deadly Exchange campaign, the core of which is that Israel is responsible for police violence against blacks in America. The strategy is clear enough: if you blame the Jewssorry, Zionismfor everyones ills, you can draw more allies into your movement.
Anti-Semitism, you see, is a potent political strategy. Its even more potent when student governments ignore Jewish students and condemn, as the student Senate at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign did recently, the equation of anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism. Four hundred Jewish students, including the lone Jew in the Senate, walked out.
Police say about 75 headstones have been toppled and more than $50,000 in damage caused at a Jewish cemetery in Omaha, Nebraska.
The Omaha World-Herald reported the vandalism was carried out at the Temple Israel Cemetery in northeastern Omaha.
The incident was reported to police Tuesday by the cemeterys executive director, who said the damage was done between October 31 and Tuesday morning.
The headstones had been pushed off their bases, and many were broken. Forensic investigators from the police department went to the cemetery to take photos and document the damage.
Jews are under attack and no one gives a fuck.
