Pro-Palestinian Group at University of Chicago Urges Boycott of ‘Sh—ty Zionist Classes’

The University of Chicago is the latest institution doing absolutely nothing to deter or punish antisemitism. A pro-Palestinian student organization at the University made a post on Instagram calling on all students to avoid taking “Sh—ty Zionist Classes.”

The group, the University of Chicago Students for Justice in Palestine chapter, is urging all classes discussing Israel or which are taught by Israeli fellows and professors to be boycotted. “Don’t Take Sh—ty Zionist Classes. Support the Palestine movement for liberation by boycotting classes on Israel or those taught by Israeli fellows” the post read.

The post added that students who attend these classes are “participating in a propaganda campaign that creates complicity in the continuation of Israel’s occupation of Palestine.” The post continued, “Israeli-centered classes are designed to obscure Palestinian perspectives. Many courses which proclaim to be about aspects of ‘Israeli Culture’ make no mention of Palestine or Palestinians, preferring the term ‘Arab Minority’ at most.”

Israel is an “apartheid state” and the courses are “Zionist propaganda” the student group claims. “Boycott these classes that serve as vehicles to spread Zionist propaganda on American college campuses. The Zionist agenda of these classes can be red directly off their course descriptions, which we’ve highlighted for you here. If you or anyone you know are taking these courses, DROP THEM.”

Naturally, a University of Chicago spokesperson did not address the issue, nor condemn the student group directly. The spokesperson gave the following statement:

“The University of Chicago is committed to support the wellbeing of all members of our community, to welcome people of all backgrounds, and to provide an environment for faculty and students to engage freely and openly on a wide range of issues. These values compel our steadfast opposition to discrimination, including rejection of antisemitism, anti-Palestinian bias, and other forms of bias that are incompatible with our commitment to diversity and inclusion.”

The spokesperson added that the University of Chicago does not “tolerate violence, threats, intimidation or harassment directed at individuals or groups, as reflected in University Policy.” But it seems they are tolerating the Palestinian group’s vitriol given there are no consequences nor condemnation of the group’s actions.

    It is amazing that these people want to keep a 1400 year war going. Backward. They need to be required to take a detailed World History Class. How brainwashed to think theirs is the only history.

    This is good stuff, but I am unable to retweet it. Is there a solution?

    I blame the ultra liberal Jews who finance J Street and support George Soros. They have saturated universities with their uber liberalism thinking all is well; lacking any sechel (common sense) how their extreme liberalism has only encouraged those who hate Israel; conflating anti-Israel and anti-Zionism with anti-Jewish. These are the same enemies of true freedom who encourage and accept the enemies of Israel.

    Another Muslim Brotherhood terrorist-supporting student association.

    Anti zionism is not anti semitism. The protest of a -small, I believe – group of pro-Palestinian supporters at the UoC, is nothing compared to the pro-Israel constant hammering indoctrination and the terror imposed by zionists on anyone even only suspected of anti-zionism/semitism. If freedom of speech still means something in the US, the vitriol is not on the pro-Palestinians side…

    We shouldn’t support Zionists, it’s jewish supremacy that promotes loxism and sending our kids to die in wars for zionists interests, it has no place in our schools or in our government though there are a shocking amount of dual citizenship zionists in congress which is why there is the unfounded claim that white supremacism is the greatest threat to our nation.

    Is this because the new President of the U. of C. came from Berkeley, if I’m not mistaken?
    I remember the U. of C. as a place that allowed freedom of speech (pretty much), but not racism or disruption of classes and lectures, as sometimes happens in San Francisco and Berkeley.

    I had a runaround with the hypocritical president of S.F. State Univ. when he failed to prevent disruption of a Hillel lecture by a new mayor of Jerusalem. The head of the UC system also gave me a song and dance. They will never admit they are against Israel, and they never present any arguments, but they let some of the anti-Zionist folks say and do just about whatever they want. Hillel said they were going to ask the mayor some tough questions, but nobody could hear anything, thanks to the SFSU pres. telling campus security to stand down and not prevent the disruption.

    I still consider the U. of C. a great place, and I know we’ve seen things like this in the past, beginning in the 1890s. I hope everybody puts pressure on the administration to stop their coddling of anti-free speech movements. PC is mostly self-righteous, one-dimensional political cultism these days, on the right or the left. Maybe the new president of the UC needs to be replaced with someone who believes in actual free speech, not the silencing of those who advocate it.

Michigan asks residents to house migrants, enroll children in school and help adults find employment

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
