This is just typical BDS propaganda. Who knew it had such a presence at the University of Chicago?

University of Chicago pro-Palestinian group urges students to avoid ‘Sh–ty Zionist Classes’
A pro-Palestinian student organization at the University of Chicago is calling on students to avoid taking “Sh–ty Zionist Classes” in an Instagram post.
The University of Chicago Students for Justice in Palestine chapter published an Instagram post on Jan. 26 calling on students to avoid taking “Sh–ty Zionist Classes,” and asking students to boycott classes discussing Israel or who are taught by Israeli fellows.
“Don’t Take Sh–ty Zionist Classes,” the Instagram post reads. “Support the Palestine movement for liberation by boycotting classes on Israel or those taught by Israeli fellows.”
The post states that students attending classes discussing Israel or who are taught by Israeli fellows are “participating in a propaganda campaign that creates complicity in the continuation of Israel’s occupation of Palestine.”
“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,” the post stated.
The Students for Justice in Palestine chapter also states that Israel is an “apartheid state,” adding that the courses are “Zionist propaganda.”
“Boycott these classes that serve as vehicles to spread Zionist propaganda on American college campuses. The Zionist agenda of these classes can be read directly off their course descriptions, which we’ve highlighted for you here. If you or anyone you know are taking these courses, DROP THEM,” the Instagram post description states.
In the Instagram post, the pro-Palestinian organization commented on various course descriptions discussing Israel that are being taught at the university.
