Anti-Semitism, Violence Against Jews Surge on College Campuses

Anti-Semitism surged on college campuses across the United States during the first part of 2016, according to a new study that found Jewish students supportive of Israel are being targeted “for harm.”

Nearly 100 more anti-Semitic incidents were recorded on U.S. college campuses during the first six months of 2016 compared with the same period in 2015, according to the report, published by the AMCHA Initiative, a group that works to combat discrimination against Jews.

In addition, “the number of incidents involving the suppression of Jewish students’ freedom of speech and assembly approximately doubled from 2015 to 2016,” according to the report, which also found that a massive uptick in anti-Israel behavior “was highly correlated with behavior that targeted Jewish students for harm.”

“The number of incidents opposing Israel’s right to exist nearly tripled from 2015 to 2016,” according to the report, which provides further evidence that anti-Israel activism on campus is fueling aggression against Jewish students and placing them in harm’s way.

Brought on by the liberals in their words and actions during the Obama Administration. Much of our country's tensions today have been caused by liberal Democrats.
