Blood Libels from Israel-Hating Students in Florida

Pages: 1 2

Students who vocally call for the destruction of Israel have created a stir in Florida with their promotion of modern-day blood libels and lies demonizing the Jewish State. On March 30th, 200 mock eviction notices were placed on dorm-room doors by the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in Boca Raton. “We regret to inform you that your home is scheduled for demolition shortly,” begins the notice, which can be seen here. “You have three (3) days to vacate the premise persuant (sic) to code no. 208.2A or you will be subject to arrest. If you do not leave, we reserve the right to destroy your home. Anyone left inside is not our responsibility.”

The notice continues: “Harsh? So is this reality: The Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions reports about 25,000 homes have been destroyed by Israeli military forces since the Occupation of Palestine began in 1967.” Further down, the notice repeats the lie that Israeli forces deliberately murdered American peace activist Rachel Corrie.

For the legions of college students reliably ignorant of history, 1967 is the year of the Six Day War during which Israel neutralized the attempt by Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq to annihilate the Jewish State. As for Corrie, she was killed when she attempted to interfere with Israeli counter-terrorism operations taking place in a declared war zone. The zone was part of an area concealing weapon smuggling tunnels used to attack Israel. Corrie was acting as a human shield and was accidently crushed by falling debris. Yet her death remains a cornerstone of anti-Israeli propaganda.

SJP campus leader Noor Fawzy claims the notice was nothing more than an attempt to educate students. “The intent is to expose Israel’s illegal policies and give students a feel of what it’s like to live under occupation” she said, further noting that the notices were posted at random and Jewish students were not singled out. “We don’t discriminate, we’re here to raise awareness about the plight of Palestinians,” said Fawzy. “This was done randomly, we were escorted by a housing official as we distributed the notices.”

With respect to that last contention at least, Fawzy is telling the truth. The FAU Housing and Residential Life Department not only approved the notices, but provided a department employee as an escort when the anti-Israeli activists posted them on dorm doors and elevators. Initially, Charles Brown, FAU’s Senior Vice President for Student Affairs, contended the university did not condone the fliers. Yet FAU was eventually forced to accept responsibility. “The recent mock eviction postings did not comply with the policies of University Housing and Residential Life or the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership concerning the distribution of printed material,” said a released statement.

The notices also contained a mock Palm Beach County seal that PBC Commissioner Steven Abrams noted was illegal, even though it contained a disclaimer “not affiliated with county.” Abrams contended the posting was done “to scare or confuse students, which I am informed was the case in many instances,” he said.

Fawzy remained unrepentant. “We have the right to express ourselves,” she said. “There is no reason for the Jewish community to feel afraid.” Student Rayna Exelbierd, who had one of the eviction notices posted on her door, wasn’t buying it. “We’re taking it very seriously,” she said. “We’re considering it a hate crime. The flier promotes hate; it doesn’t promote peace. People were scared by it. People felt threatened by it.”

Students do have the right to express themselves, yet the point at which such expression crosses the line into outright intimidation–make that university-sanctioned intimidation–may in fact be a violation of anti-discrimination laws that do not allow for the creation of a hostile environment targeting specific groups. The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), a group that has led the charge to defend Jewish college students from campus hate, demanded that FAU condemn the notice. They contend the flyer was anti-Semitic, citing a 2005 study by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights recognizing that anti-Semitism “should be distinguished from legitimate discourse regarding foreign policy,” and that “anti-Semitic bigotry is no less morally deplorable when camouflaged as anti-Israelism or anti-Zionism.”

    Can you imagine the outrage if someone posted notices that declared that all mosques must be shut down and all muslims must be evicted from any non arabian penisular country? Harse? So is this reality: in the arabian penisular they distroy non islamic places of worship, refuse to allow non muslim places of worship to even be build, arrest non muslims for the simple act of worshiping as their concious dictates, execute those who leave islam.

    Do you leftards really want to go down this path? or will you completely ignore the truth and hurl insults (which by the way I laugh at).

    • Stephen_Brady

      Yours is one of the best responses in this thread. I noticed that the Left really had nothing to say to you. Indeed, what could they say?

  • Larry

    If I was a student on campus these days I wouldn't last long, I'd be booted for punching out genocidists, exactly as they deserve.

  • rachaelamb

    It's unbelievable to me so much of the world supports the Palestinians. When most of them support the destruction of Israel, and the death and destruction of the Jewish people inside Israel. I can understand the Arabs and the Muslims supporting them. But why Europeans? Will they still feel the same way when the Muslims take over, and impose sharia law on them,and they have to convert to Islam, or be murdered? Now it looks like the poison of antiisrael sentiment sadly is spreading to America. With the help of Arab and third world immigration promoted largely by the Obama administration.

    • findalis

      One word: Anti-Semitism.

      Europeans cannot openly say they hate the Jews. But it is acceptable to say they hate Israel. It is the same hatred, different wording.

    • aspacia


      European antiSemitism is ancient.


    From the River to the Sea,

    Pal-e-SWINE Will Never Be.


    • Lrnglbrt

      There never was a Palestine, today they would be called RATS.


    Meanwhile the Assad family dictatorship of Syria has killed 9,000 Syrians.

    Where are the demonstrations by leftists, socialist, sociopaths, FAKE "anti-war" cultists outside Syrian embassies, consulates?

    None. Wonder why? The Assad dictatorship is one of their own genocidal tyrants – like stalin and Socialist SHlTler.

    • Raymond in DC

      Yep. They defend their own. Even after Al-Bashir of Sudan was charged with war crimes and genocide, he was welcomed in Turkey. Erdogan defended him against the charge of genocide, insisting "Muslims don't engage in genocide." Case closed as far as he's concerned. (Note: Obama's favorite leader in the region is … Turkey's Erdogan.)

    • zionista

      Jew haters never go after blood thirsty savage muslims

  • Eric

    This is definitely a hate crime of immature Arabs taking an advantage of certain freedoms in academical environment. I suggest to squire off this long conflist on the a battlefield! Come on! Get into uniforms and show to Israel your hostility the way all wars were conducted. The winner takes it all!

    • stern

      That's exactly why they won't! If they get into uniforms, they can't claim Israel kills civilians. If they fight a war the way wars have always been fought, they will lose and won't be able to go crying to the UN. So they take advantage of international anti-Semitism and play the victim – and they win, time and time again, as this article demonstrates.

    • Clay

      Good idea, but they already won Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and East Jerusalem in the '67 War.

  • Gamaliel

    Someone should post notices that state "You have been caught selling your home to a Jew. You will be killed"

    • stern

      That is a brilliant suggestion!

    • StephenD

      Or set up appointments for Genital Mutilation. After all, we wouldn't want a woman to get pleasure from a healthy sexual relationship. You wouldn't be able to control her! That is her place in Islam, is it not? Israel has no idea how to control its women. Why, in Israel, they get to walk without permission of a male relative, outside of their homes! They are allowed an education, work, why they even get to marry whom they choose!! Can you believe it?!?

    • TimN

      My thoughts too- "Your sister has exposed her face and will have acid thrown in it","Your Mosque will be burned to the ground by a band of hate crazed Christians protesting your unclean presence",or "Your airplane will be hijacked and flown into skyscrapers", "Your home will be demolished by a missile launched from the cover of a bunch of civilians", "Your family will be blown up by a lunatic wearing a bomb" etc etc ad nauseum.
      How about this- We could post some flyers offering a free clitorectomy to any of those unclean 'whores' who are so unislamic as to expect enjoyment from sex.
      The possibilities are endless. Let's roll out the flyers and hand it back to them *grins*
      Naaaahhhh that would be Islamophobic and racist wouldn't it.

    • American Thinker

      This happens in the Palestinian terror-tories now. Arabs are prosecuted for selling land to Jews.

  • oldtimer

    Isn't this a form of hate crime? If it were the other way around, the Jewish/or Christian students would have been suspended or expelled. ALL of Israel belongs to Judah(Gen. 13:14,15) forever.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    These posted notices are and open threat and should be dealt with by the Police, the housing authority
    if acting in support even as a tour guide through the dorms are complicit and of course idiots. What are
    the Palestinian barbarians doing in America at all, they are our enemies…………………William

    • StephenD

      The DOJ will get right on it as soon as they're done with the Black Panthers posting a "Wanted – Dead or Alive" poster, wqith a reward, on Zimmerman.

      I'm not holding my breath.

      • WilliamJamesWard

        DOJ under Holder and Obama, useless………..hopefully the students parents will file and appropriate
        law suit against the College…………….William

    • jacob

      This FAU official who had one of his staff accompaning this woman to post such notices, BE
      FIRED and this woman expelled from FAU….First Ammendment or else…..

      Of course, it is more than actually possible FAU as many more educational institutions, is getting
      Arab money to allow such to happen, as candidly confessed once by a Saudi ambassador….and
      given the degree of corruption we've reached in this country, EVERYTHING is possible.

      Then, it is up to the people to put up with this crap or eliminate it…..

      • WilliamJamesWard

        You are absolutely right Jacob……….there must be a way to get them out of the Country maybe
        force the Authorities to void their visas, after the next election. I can't stand the sight of
        them and have no patience with the enemies of our Nation moving about freely, and yes we
        must eliminate the crap…………………………………William

  • jacob

    I guess all those Jewish DEMOCRAPS, contributors to OBAMA's war chest and voters for his reelection
    should pitch in and bring this issue all the way to the Supreme Court if need be, in order to teach these
    people a lesson that will go all the way to what is going on at every university in the USA.
    And as to this this appointed public official who allowed one of his staff to accompany that woman in her posting such notices,same as the hell raised by rabble rousers AL SHARPTON and JESSE JACKSON
    in the ZIMMERMANN case, Governor SCOTT of Florida should be asked to fire him as a matter of
    principle as such conduct shouldn't be allowed and whether this guy hates Israel or just Jews is his
    problem but I will not accept his using his post to do it.

  • scotsirish

    …………This is how it all began in Germany.
    University officials are uneducated ? in these matters? and the parents of these students have failed to teach their children of the insidious evil that reigned in Europe during the 30's and the 40's. There should have been posters of the pictures from the Holocaust Memorial Day placed on the doors of the offenders and their leaders at the University. Shame on you Florida. Heads should have rolled over this. Instead, excuses and crickets from the powers that be. Cowards!

    • Roger

      A lot of things are happening the way they started in Germany.

      Any student of history should be horrified.
      Have you heard the story of Kitty Werthmann?

  • theleastthreat

    An officially approved form of Fascism has come to America. Congratulations academics, you are now bona fide Nazis. When should the Fuhrer's representatives drop by to pick up his honorary degree?

  • Fred

    Tear down these eviction notices and start KICKING SOME ASS. That is the only thing these savage respect and understand. If I was there I would be taking down these notices and dare anyone to stop me.

    And the university will not assist the Jewish students at all. Can't the university be sued? The Department of Injustice will not step in and help the students as they support the anti-Jewish acts especially the white hating Eric Holder and his protector BARRY the illegal President.

  • ealha3

    Unfortunately, the "response" by those victims and their supporters is so lame it only encourages further efforts to victimize and deligitimize what is obvious legitimate to the knowledgeable. What is sorely needed is a legal response, without depending on apologies or "clarifications" etc. It is illegal to advocate violence or the commission of an illegal act. Those organizations and individuals who advocated participation in the illegal flotilla should be prosecuted and sued. They should also be sued for eviction notices intending the unlawful infliction of emotional distress. Unfortunately, there is no such legal alternative – ignorant is as ignorant does or allows – we just keep saying – "Gee, this is so awful….". I say, get organized and sue the bastards!

  • Schlomotion

    I am disappointed. The title of this article promised "Blood Libels." This was quickly reduced to "modern day blood libels." This was further reduced to ZOA was angry that pro-Palestinians hung up some fliers at a university. This kind of crying wolf coupled with bait and switch, I believe, causes antisemitism.

  • montlasky

    When you have a country inundated with people from Islamist countries and then given education at it's universities, where the number of Islamist students outnumbers other non infidel students the task of fighting this "inequalty" becomes more and more difficult to contain, especially where the university authorities are in cahoots with the guilty parties.and racial hate mongers on campus. Surely Jewish and non Jewish students (Christian?)and others can form their own groups to counter the hateful Isalmists? or are the infidels hiding under their beds afraid to rock the boat? If this is the case, the Islamists will control not only academic institutions in the US but sooner or later the US itself!
    "Peace in our time" is what the Islamists feed on. Our weaknesses!!

  • guest

    expel terrorists from the country

  • neils60

    I wonder how many Jewish students found this act of placing these posters on the dorm doors offensive? From my experience, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if some Jewish students not only didn't object, but supported the so-called activists, a.k.a. hate monger's, cause. Why, because they've converted to the religion of "progressivism" without having a clue what Judaism is, or what progressives really stand for. Having worked with younger Jewish children over the years, this is what I've observed, and it's getting a lot worse.

  • politicaljules

    The article is a bit wordy for the topic that needs to be addressed. the reader is forced into a massive amount of only slightly related information. This story could have been broken into at least 5 or 6 other stories.

    The avalanche of over information was a bit too much.

    • stern

      Your post was too wordy for the topic it addressed. In fact, I wonder why you posted at all. You could have saved yourself the time it took to read the article and to post your completely irrelevant bit of fluff.

  • Deziderio

    Students!What about the OCCUPATION…?The legal definition of ocupation-when a Sovereign state occupies another Sovereign State. Comprende,capisi?China has occupied and opressed Tibet for the past 60-70 years.That is occupation,Comprende,capisi?In 1967,in a war of self-defece,Israel took control over Judea,Samaria the eastern part of Jerusalem,and Gaza.Comprende, capisi?This territories, never having been part of a Sovereign state,Since the time of Jewis statehood of 2000 years ago,are thus disputed,not illegally occupied.Israel has attempted to negotiate a peaceful settlement of this dispute sience 1967.Students comprende, capisi???????????????????Students you are brain-wased ,comprende, capisi???????

  • jordanariel

    There was mention about illegally using the copy of the official seal of Palm Beach County. I think they should go after "Noor Floozy" (i mean fawzy) and her group legally.

    The fact that an official from the college WENT WITH the people who were posting the fliers is also something that should be looked at.

    They are lucky i dont live in Boca Raton anymore (i used to) (I was also 12 at the time)

  • Juddea

    How about a notice that all gay people will be stoned in town sq or that women who expose an inch of skin, walk down the street with a man not in her family, or a women caught reading a book, or a women who dares to speak her mnd will be immediately put to death. Not to target women, gay people or muslims, but to call attention to what it would be like to live under Sharia law. Although I am not sure I would shed a single tear if this fate caught up with Miss Noor Fawzy, after all she is litteraly asking for it.

  • Ghostwriter

    I hate to break to Schlobrain and his pals but this is stupid. This whole thing is little more than a publicity stunt for a bunch of anti-semites. In fact,Schlomotion would fit in perfectly with the FAU. They seem to have no problem targeting Jews,so does he. Bad birds of a feather flock together.

    • Schlomotion

      At least I do not make everyone touch the Blutbeleidigung before going to war against Islam.

  • Ronald Johnston

    I can't understand anybody who calls for the death of anybody else. They are simply barbarians and should be treated as such. They need to be deported to the country of their origin and the country needs to be isolated from the civilized world. We have a small minority of liberals in this country who need to go with them. They do not deserve the grandness of this country!!!!

  • g_jochnowitz

    Will the students have any reaction to the public executions that Hamas plans to carry out?

  • graptolite

    Why aren't these activists concerned about returning New Mexico the Navajo; or Silesia to the Germans;or Istanbul to the Byzantines-the answer is because their motivation stems from hatred of jews-anybody can see this if they want to. Any land a jew lives on will always be "occupied" to a jew hater. Call a spade a spade.

  • BS77

    These are not students…they are idiots, brainwashed morons pretending to be getting an education. If you jerks don't like it here…. move to Somalia or Sudan and luxuriate in the squalor of barbaric conditions.

  • Danny

    What about the eviction notice was targeting Jews? It was about the Israeli government evicting Palestinians. A tasteless protest, but in this case not anti-Semitic.

    • American Thinker

      A school official accompanied the HATERS who created these fliers to tape them on the doors of hundreds of JEWISH students. Young kids who were TERRIFIED. Singled out due to religion. Get it?

  • Polly Wolly

    Rachel Corrie was run over by an Israeli bulldozer, whether deliberately or not. What's this fantastic lie about her being "accidentally killed by falling debris"?

  • Simphiwe Kanityi

    We, or should I say I, will also die in defense of Israel here is South Africa. In the campus I was a student at too this Israel Apartheid Week is held as well and believe me there is too much brainwashing going on to believe one side and this acts is condoned by some authorities.

  • Therese

    Anti-Semitism is on the rise. Where is the Justice department ? This is hate speech and harassment . Christians need to be actively involved in standing up for Jewish people. When Jews try to defend themselves, the indoctrinated and hateful can not hear a defense through teir hate. Jewish students have the right to feel safe at school. A legal review should occur to determine if charges can be brought not only against the people who did this but against whoever in the college administration sanctioned this. There should be zero tolerance.

  • Schlomotion

    I accept your statement in its entirety and wholeheartedly agree. It is obnoxious to single out Jews for this kind of protest, unless they were all members of Campus Watch or something. If I were a regular old student, not in any Zionist political groups and someone hung this on my door, I would have gone down to their headquarters and asked them what the hell they think they are doing. I agree that the activists are full of it.

  • Schlomotion

    All of these protesters are slow witted. I would have looked through the peephole until she arrived and then swung the door open really fast and mashed shaving cream in her face. All you have to say later is "she was trying to serve me an eviction notice under color of law."
