Poll Finds Majority of Jewish Students Feel Unsafe on Campus, 50% Feel Need to Hide Their Identity

“50% of students surveyed claimed to have hidden their Jewish identity, and more than half of them avoid sharing personal opinions regarding Israel”

This should come as no surprise when we’ve got sitting Democratic members of Congress who openly spew anti-Israel bile on a regular basis.

Campus Reform reports:

POLL: 50% of Jewish students feel they ‘need to hide their identity’ on campus

Jewish college students are increasingly attempting to hide their identity.

A newly released poll conducted by the Brandeis Center and the Cohen Research Group reveals that 65% of students in the leading Jewish fraternity and sorority have “felt unsafe” on campus, while 50% of students surveyed have felt “the need to hide their identity.”

The poll surveyed 1,027 students in the Jewish fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi, and the Jewish sorority, Alpha Epsilon Phi, in spring 2021.

According to the poll, 50% of students surveyed claimed to have hidden their Jewish identity, and more than half of them avoid sharing personal opinions regarding Israel.

The Brandeis Center also found that two-thirds of students “were familiar” with anti-Semitic incidents occurring on-campus or online within the last 120 days, with 10% being physical attacks.

Examples of verbal anti-Semitic instances experienced by students included “Israel treats Palestinians how the Nazis treated the Jews,” “offensive jokes about Jews,” “Jews have collective responsibility for Israel’s actions,” and more.

Brandeis Center’s founder, Kenneth Marcus, who was former President Donald Trump’s appointed Assistant Secretary of Civil Rights at the United States Department of Education, told Campus Reform the amount of anti-Semitic incidents is only getting worse.

“What we found is not only that anti-Semitic incidents have been going way up, even now during the age of Joe Biden, but that they are having an impact on Jewish students that had never been recorded before,” Marcus said.

But the number of Jewish students who feel unsafe on campus also increases as their time at college progresses, the poll found.

It’s beeen that way forever. Same with the military.

Well, that’s what happens when you vote as if “Never Again” is just a commercial bumper sticker.

    That, and many snivel and whine about things to the point they become annoying. Maybe THAT is why they feel uncomfortable.

Going to be funny/sad when Jews discover their safe spaces are NASCAR events and Baptist churches.
According to FBI figures, Jews are victims in about half the instances of hate crimes. Going on two years ago, the NYT noted t hat white supremacists, and their ilk, could not be found among the perps. Probably why there’s so little publicity.

The secular Jewish establishment , and the heterodox and deviationist branches of Judaism worship the false gods of the woke world. That means less support for Israel and ignoring obvious instances of anti Semitism in the media, academia and street but looking for anti Semitism where it longer exists
