Anti-Israel Incidents Are Harming Jewish Student Lives: Report

By 10/16/2022 3:00 PMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

A new report from the Anti-Defamation League gathered information on over 350 anti-Israel incidents on US college campuses during the last school year, concluding that the activities had negatively impacted Jewish students.

“The antisemitic vitriol directed at pro-Israel students is deeply unsettling and makes our colleges and universities feel less safe and secure for Jewish students,” the head of the ADL, Jonathan Greenblatt, said in a statement. According to the report, incidents ranged from harsh criticism of the Jewish state to harassing and excluding Jewish students due to their perceived stances on Israel.

ADL’s annual Campus Report, recorded 359 anti-Israel incidents during the 2021-2022 school year. The report, which focused on more radical activism and not routine criticism of Israel, was intended to provide a snapshot of the campus environment, and was not comprehensive or scientific, the ADL said.

The hundreds of incidents comprised mainly anti-Israel events and protests. There were also 19 cases of targeted harassment, 11 incidents of vandalism, one physical assault and 20 resolutions in support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Three of the trends identified by the report were ostracizing Zionist students, supporting anti-Israel violence and espousing antisemitic tropes.
