After the wave of antisemitic attacks by Muslim terrorist supporters, people wondered when they were going to see every organization pushing out a letter condemning antisemitism. The wave of attacks by street criminals on Asians did trigger some letters, but not on the level of BLM.
The antisemitic attacks led to fewer and even weaker condemnations. And now an apology for the condemnation.
A Rutgers University chancellor and provost apologized on Thursday for a previous message that condemned recent incidents of antisemitic violence in the US after it was denounced by a pro-Palestinian campus group — with school administrators regretting that their original statement “failed to communicate support for our Palestinian community members.”
The original message, issued Wednesday by Rutgers–New Brunswick Chancellor Christopher J. Molloy and Provost Francine Conway, was titled “Speaking Out Against Acts of Antisemitism,” and expressed sadness over a rise in anti-Jewish harassment and attacks during the past several weeks.
This is exactly the argument that lefties had used against All Lives Matter only to completely embrace it when it comes to antisemitism.
There wasn’t a surge of violence against Muslims or specifically those Muslim settlers who claim to be “Palestinians”. There was one against Jews.
And yet even that condemnation had to be pulled.
The backstory is that the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) hate group is very active at Rutgers. And the college has seen a good deal of antisemitic incidents. One of which they were being investigated for during the Trump administration where campus antisemitism was being taken seriously.
SJP Rutgers was really unhappy with the condemnation of antisemitism.
The statement by the Rutgers chapters of the SJP hate group complains that the college’s statement “exclusively addressing antisemitism comes during a time when Israel’s occupation of Palestine is finally receiving widespread criticism”.
The SJP hate group chapter suggested that condemning antisemitism was an effort to “conflate antizionism with antisemitism and derail Palestinian voices and activism.”
SJP also insisted “if the Chancellor and Provost were truly committed to creating “a safe learning environment that is inclusive of difference” as claimed in their statement, they would stand in active support of the Rutgers New Brunswick Palestinian population as well as its Jewish population.”
As the media continues advocating for Emily Wilder, this is a good time to remember just how antisemitic SJP really is.
