A new documentary uploaded to the Jerusalem University YouTube channel exposes the harsh reality of extreme antisemitism on university campuses.
Crossing the Line 2: The New Face of Anti-Semitism on Campus uses its 30-minute run-time to great effect, citing incidents from universities in New York, California, Michigan and even an anti-Israel rally in Alberta, Canada.
Aviva Slomich, who is campus director for the Committee on Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America, claims university professors, especially tenured ones, project their anti-Israel stance onto students.
To back this up, a 2011 video clip of Professor Dennis Sullivan of Northeastern University praising the terrorist organization Hamas for “great healthcare and kindergartens” is shown. Sullivan goes on to say “Hamas doesn't recognize Israel. So what?”
Speakers in the video say students are often afraid to speak up because they believe their grades will suffer if they do.
A good portion of the video showcases how Zionism has become a proxy for antisemitism.
A guest-speaker at the University of California in Irvine disqualifies a two-state solution at an anti-Israel rally. “Two state solution is off the table. No. One state. Check this out -- one state, majority rules: Us, the Muslims,” he says to chants of "Allahu Akbar."
“Israel is a colonial project that does not have the right to exist. The Zionist state of Israel is in itself a crime against humanity,” says a speaker at a rally in Oakland, California.
Chloe Valdary, a pro-Israel activist at the University of New Orleans explains how buzzwords are used to further demonize Israel. Using the words "racism" and "Zionism" together ad nauseam subconsciously links the two. This way, students who have not done any research on the topics have a preconcieved notion in their head associating Zionism with racism.
Professor Robert Wistrich, Head of Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism calls the comparison to Nazi Germany "the most grotesque of all." He calls it "so twisted, so repulsive and yet commonplace."
Watch the video below and see for yourself just how one-sided things have become on university campuses when it comes to Israel.
