Florida State University student senate rejects pro-BDS, anti-IHRA resolutions
The student senate at Florida State University rejected a series of resolutions that supported the anti-Israel BDS movement and rejected the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s working definition on anti-Semitism.
The resolutions, which were authored by former student senate president Ahmad Daraldik, who came under fire for past anti-Semitic statements last summer, included one BDS resolution and another that calls on FSU to “rescind” its adoption of the widely accepted IHRA working definition of anti-Semitism.
According to StandwithUs, the BDS resolution and anti-IHRA resolutions were defeated in committee before they could reach the senate floor. The BDS resolution failed unanimously.
One of the anti-IHRA resolutions failed with a vote of 0-7-3, while the other was unanimously amended to remove all anti-IHRA language that was harmful to the Jewish community.
