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.
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.
