EXCLUSIVE W/Video: Shocking Anti-Semitism During Holocaust Remembrance Day at Columbia U

 

When members of Columbia’s Students Supporting Israel campus group set up a memorial booth on April 11th, for Holocaust Remembrance Day, honoring the 6 million Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis, the memorial was disrupted by the screaming chants of anti-Israel protesters.

 

The table for the commemoration of Holocaust Memorial Day had testimonials from Holocaust survivors as well as memorial candles laid out. After an hour in which Jewish students shared the stories of holocaust survivors, a large group of anti-Israel protests gathered across the plaza from the SSI table.

 

The protestors, a coalition of groups that make up Columbia University’s Apartheid and Divest student group, stood on Columbia’s College Walk chanting, “From Gaza to the plaza, globalize the Intifada!” This was followed by more violent chants such as, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!” These slogans, call for the ethnic cleansing of the Jews and the destruction of the state of Israel.

 

   Shocked and sickened to the core, Jewish students persisted with their event by reminding those who passed by both that today was Holocaust Memorial Day, and that Jews must continue to fight anti-Semitism wherever it appears.

 

   This was no coincidence, last year during Holocaust Memorial Day, the same anti-Israel group invited the founder of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions group who has openly called for the destruction of the Jewish state and its people.

    On Tuesday, Columbia University students in Students Supporting Israel submitted a detailed
summary of anti-Semitic acts on Columbia’s campus, ranging from the tearing down of flyers to the
bullying of pro-Israel students. After months of complacency, in which Columbia University has
failed to respond with disciplinary actions, the detailed summary and related evidence were released
yesterday to the public.  Full Detailed Memo On anti-Semitism at Columbia.

 

Now is the time to expose this anti-Semitism on campus so that Jews can feel safe going to class and commemorating the Holocaust without hearing protests that call for the destruction of their state. The strength of Students Supporting Israel reminds us that we must not only say “Never Again”, but make a commitment to make sure that the Holocaust never happens again.

Here are two videos made from  Students Supporting Israel at Columbia university, covering the anti-Semitism on campus and opinions of students.

  1. So now we have to listen to the campus leftist-Islamist hate alliance during Holocaust Remembrance Day tell us they want another Holocaust while the university stands by and does absolutely nothing??

    This is like the KKK chanting Death to Blacks on Martin Luther King Day.

    This hate has gone on too long and is reaching a ridiculous intensity. Jewish lives matter too, and if a high;y-paid university President and administration cannot do its job, then it is time they stepped down and allow those who have a conscience to take over.

    Most university administrations are saturated with leftist thinking and the only fear they have is of upsetting the hatemongers on the left and among the Islamist groups on campus.

  3. As a child born in DP camp Germany my parents concentration camp survivors & as a New Yorker reading this saddens & angers me! Enough of the radicalization of Columbia University students by other racists anti Semitic groups who loiter the halls of what could be a great learning beacon for all! These hateful group of students shame the university where are the Faculty during such a disruptive despicable demonstration of hate? So sad so angry!

  4. This is why Columbia will never get another penny from my family and me, most of whom have attended the University in some fashion

  5. As an alumnus, I am ashamed.

    The cowardice of the administration knows no bounds. We all know what would happen to anyone were they to utter a word critical of Islam.

    It is a dark blot on the world of academia that they kowtow to the bullies who take away the rights of people to speak. And the mere use of the term “From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be free” is nothing more than a call to genocide, yet the moral weakness and spinelessness of university leaders in the face of such racism speaks volumes.
