Today, anti-Israel activists on U.S. college campuses aren’t just burning flags or threatening violence. Now anti-Israel elements are using tactics that may sound less extreme, even though they are just as terrifying. Calling it a “new intifada,” Tzahi Gavrieli writes in an op-ed for Ynet that the newest campaign sweeping college campuses seeks to delegitimize Zionism in its entirety, and the results could be incredibly dangerous.
It is not coincidental that a significant part of the delegitimization campaign against Israel is talking place on campuses. The arena was carefully selected. Campuses have always been fertile ground for exchanging ideas, for activity aimed at fomenting social change and for calls for universal ideals because it is easier to plant the seeds of unruliness in the minds of 18 year olds, who are more open to innovative and…
Just when you thought Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi couldn’t dig his hole any deeper . . . he recently went on record to clarify that he is not, in fact, an anti-Semite after taking heat for a recent interview in which he called Israelis “descendants of apes and pigs.” In fact, Morsi said, he’s not an anti-Semite at all — it’s just that pesky Jewish-controlled media that makes him look like one.
Morsi, a member of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, came under fire recently after video surfaced of him calling Jews and Zionists “bloodsuckers” and “the descendants of apes and pigs.”
The senators’ meeting with Morsi was partially intended to receive clarification on his earlier comments.

As Israeli settlers begin building homes and erecting a barrier wall in the West Bank village of Bil’in, a Palestinian farm worker documents the town’s resistance to the new settlement.

Last week Americans for Peace and Tolerance released a shocking 30-minute video showing Northeastern professor Denis Sullivan and other Northeastern faculty spewing vicious anti-Israel lies and anti-Semitism as part of their class curriculum. ”It seems clear that Professor Sullivan has built his department to inculcate students with a hostile and demonized view of the Jewish state, with repeated comparisons to the Nazis,” Dr. Charles Jacobs, APT president told the Jerusalem Post.
The video opens with one of the most disturbing clips, showing Northeastern Economics Professor Shahid Alam telling students that they should be proud of being called anti-Semites. Alam bragged in the clip that over the past 10 years of his teaching there, the student body had largely turned against Israel, while pro-Israel students have been intimidated into silence.
