Support your local pro-Israel student.
We have covered the thinly veiled and sometimes not veiled threatening and violent behavior of anti-Israeli activists on campus so many times, it’s hardly possible to sum them up in one post anymore. Just scroll through our BDS Tag.
If you read our recent posts about Cornell, you’d know that it can happen anywhere, even on campuses that are not as a whole anti-Israel.
Non-student agitators and faculty often are the catalyst for what now euphemistically is called “direct action,” the new rallying cry for groups like Students for Justice in Palestine.
This video sums up some of what is happening (via Caroline Glick):

From what I’ve seen, pro-Israel students are choosing to fight back, not to flee.
That’s a good thing, and needs to be encouraged.
But that doesn’t make it any easier to be that student who has to deal with the harassment and threats face-to-face.
So do a good thing.
Support your local pro-Israel student and pro-Israel campus group. However you can. Go to their events. Donate your time or money to help.
Help them fight, because flight is not an option.
