Anti-Israel protests more prevalent at elite US universities, study finds

A study published Friday suggests that pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel protests and encampments are more prevalent in elite and exclusive universities than in  institutions that cater to lower-income students.

Trump says he’ll deport anti-Israel student protesters if elected

Presumptive Republican US presidential candidate Donald Trump has said that if elected in November he will deport anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian student protesters, The Washington Post reported.

Referring to anti-Israel protests amid the ongoing war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip that swept US college campuses in the last seven months, the former US president vowed to defeat the “radical revolution,” according to sources who heard him speak at a May 14 donor event that he described as including “98 percent of my Jewish friends.” “If you get me reelected, we’re going to set that movement back 25 or 30 years,” Trump said. “It has to be stopped now.”

After controversy over Israel-Hamas war, Harvard to stop issuing any such statements

Harvard University will no longer issue statements on topics that are not directly relevant to its operations, on the advice of a task force convened amid tensions around the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.

The Institutional Voice Working Group, formed last month to examine questions around when and how the school should weigh in on controversial and political issues, recommended the new policy in its first report, issued Tuesday. University leaders immediately said they accepted the recommendations.

“Harvard isn’t a government. It shouldn’t have a foreign policy or a domestic policy,” Noah Feldman, a law professor and author of a recent book about contemporary Judaism who co-chairs the group, said in a university Q&A published after the decision was announced.

HI Kittens

Kind of an empty threat for the majority of protester given they are natural born citizens. Might get rid of a few agitators and organizers but most who participated will stay in the US and adapting a new means of protest.

Yes, that's pretty much it.

Using antisemitic trope, Khamenei welcomes US student protesters to ‘Resistance Front’

Iran’s supreme leader has offered praise to students who roiled US university campuses with anti-Israel protests, and appended the antisemitic claim that Jews manipulate global media.

In an open letter to US university students, Ali Khamenei said the students have “now formed a branch of the Resistance Front,” referring to a loose alliance of Iran-backed terror groups and militias around the Middle East seeking to destroy Israel and kill American troops, including Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Yemen’s Houthis, Iraq’s Islamic Resistance, and the Hamas terror group that rules Gaza.

Harvard is one college that's withholding degrees. A lot of students are walking out of commencement ceremonies. Better they leave than disrupt it for everyone else.

They've been disrupting, and preventing students from attending, classes, so why not disrupt commencement ceremonies as well. The universities' inability, or unwillingness, to prevent the protests from getting so out of hand is shameful.

I'm so over these students. I hope it takes at least 6 months for their degrees to come in the mail. 
They can explain to any potential employers they may have why their degrees are not yet available to them.

A lot of major companies have already said a Harvard degree isn't worth anything to them.

What they can also explain to potential employers is why the only letter of recommendation they have is from the supreme leader of an Islamic theocracy that sponsors terrorism around the world.

In his little speech he says they need to become familiar with the Quran...

Not only that, but he invites them to join the resistance front, and also praises professors who protested with them.

And yes, these ignorant, easily radicalized and brainwashed students should all get a taste of what Iran and the members of its so-called 'resistance front' are really like. It's an education they're definitely in need of.

The following opinion piece focuses on the university protests in Switzerland, but it well applies to the US as well.

Two paragraphs that stand out:

It is important to understand the significance of the popular slogans being used like “stopping the genocide.” This slogan is highly inflammatory, as the protesters often do not understand the meaning of their chants. This process of brainwashing and spreading misinformation inevitably snowballs and becomes an effective way of educating the masses, who aren’t always aware of the history or facts. As these slogans spread, there is little, if any, space for discussion and education. The result is global radicalization, as these slogans are accepted and amplified to millions around the world, often with the support of the media.

And what can we say about our Western society that passively assists those hostile to democracy and real human rights by withdrawing and refraining from real action? The leaders of these protests hide behind so-called human rights and the “Peace and Love” movement when their real aim is to subject others to their extremist, dictatorial thinking, which excludes any depth of reasoning. Their control often begins by refusing to give the other side a voice and denying the facts and reality.

All very true...

Again look at the sea of self righteous whiteness...

I wonder if it also has to do with all the guilt taught in schools the past 15-20 years,and preaching of one specific groups "privilege".

These jokers get herded together wherever,and do exactly as they are told,no matter if they understand anything or not...

I think it's much more than that. Extremists have often exploited universities' commitment to free speech and the idealism and naiveté of students (many of whom have little to no knowledge of the 'real world'.). They take advantage of things like the 'guilt' you mention, the desire to defend the 'weak' not the strong (oppressor-oppressed revolutionary ideology),  and other pre-existing biases (such as antisemitism, for example).

One could also easily blame college administrators and professors (you should, by the way, read the following statement by the Ohio Senate. which outlines, among other things, what some university professors did during these protests), but they are only part of the problem.

https://ohiosenate.gov/news/on-the-record/how-our-college-campuses-became-hotbeds-of-antisemitism

The truly sad part is that many students don't even fully understand what they are protesting. But whilst knowledge and critical thinking have been proven difficult for some, hate certainly hasn't.

Those DEI programs are straight poison.

Glad they are vanishing astonishingly quickly, unfortunately look what they've already done over a decade or two.

Those professors should be exiled from ever teaching ever again.

Meanwhile in Egypt....

Egypt extends crackdown on Gaza activism with student arrests

Egypt has detained several students who were trying to promote pro-Palestinian boycotts and solidarity campaigns, the latest sign that it does not want to leave space for activism over the war in Gaza despite growing official criticism of Israel.

The students are among dozens of people held in connection with protests against Israel’s military campaign, some of them detained in October when state-sanctioned rallies spilled over to unauthorized sites including Cairo’s Tahrir Square.

Analysts say Egyptian authorities fear that demonstrations over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict could fuel domestic political dissent, which has been suppressed in a broad crackdown lasting more than a decade.

How’s retirement treating you @Doug1066….😉

Going good do far.  A few minor glitches getting insurance switched over.  Nothing major.

Had a retirement party at Sean Cummings Irish Pub in OKC last week.  We're trying to draft Sean to run for governor, but he's showing some sales resistance right now.  He just doesn't know he's going to run.

UCLA is sending students who were arrested letters telling them of disciplinary action that will be taken including withholding degrees. I don't think these are shocking threats. The students knowingly breached the laws.

UCLA issues shocking threat against students arrested at Gaza solidarity protests (msn.com)

More than 130 people were arrested on May 2 when UCLA administrators authorized a violent police raid on a Gaza solidarity encampment.

Now, many are receiving letters accusing them of breaching the student code of conduct and threatening disciplinary action – including possibly preventing their graduation.

In the letters, the students are summoned to mandatory individual meetings, and "no degree may be conferred until any pending allegations and any assigned sanctions and conditions have been completed," the Guardian reported.

"Please note that during our meeting, you will be given the opportunity to explain this situation from your perspective," the letter says.

That'll teach them. Universities should also be held responsible for allowing things to get so out of control.

Riot police arrested eighty students at UC Santa Cruz earlier today. The students were warned to leave the encampment but many refused.

You might be interested in the following opinion piece. The paragraph of note for me was this:

Campus humanitarians of the world: Wake up! The victims of the Oct. 7 attack were among the most peace-loving people on Earth. They tilled the soil and worked for peace with Gaza, not from a privileged ivory tower but while sustaining decades of rocket fire.

Hamas and Boko Haram: Why do students support the worst humans on Earth?
