“It is getting to the point where Jewish parents are reluctant to see their kids enroll in many colleges in the US and Canada because of campus antisemitism”
This playbook is used by the left in many areas. They infiltrate and take over in order to rewrite and control the narrative. Look at the media and Hollywood.
Jarrod Tanny writes at the Times of Israel:
Jewish Studies and Our Abandonment to Antisemites
“Should I worry about my child taking a Jewish studies course in college with Professor *****? They have signed numerous statements calling Israel a Jewish supremacist genocidal state. Is this what they will learn in class?”
Ever since I launched the Jewish Studies Zionist Network an alarming number of people from Jewish communities around the US have been reaching out to me. Why? Because of their growing frustration with the antisemitic bias that is now patently obvious in academia and the refusal of Jewish studies scholars to stand up to this antisemitism (I am not going to rehash a psychological analysis of the Jewish studies scholars’ motives here, but whatever they may be, harmful to Jews they most certainly are).
It is getting to the point where Jewish parents are reluctant to see their kids enroll in many colleges in the US and Canada because of campus antisemitism, or at the very least to avoid taking certain courses, especially those in Jewish studies, fearing they will be demonized as Zionists.
How horrible is that? Can you imagine African American parents or Muslim parents telling their kids not to take courses in their respective ethnic studies disciplines?
Why would Jewish donors even consider creating more positions that will empower tenured Jewish studies professors to at best ignore and at worst endorse campus antisemitism?
I can anticipate the inevitable response to my claim from my anti-Zionist colleagues in Jewish studies: “We are fighting for Palestinian rights, not against the Jewish community.”
