This past weekend, Palestinian Arabs in Jerusalem marked the conclusion of Ramadan with vast gatherings at the Temple Mount (the world's holiest site for Jews and third-holiest site for Muslims), where incendiary video footage showed the crowds enthusiastically chanting hateful slogans preaching violence against Jews. Naturally, the so-called "Jewish" anti-Zionist organization IfNotNow publicly endorsed the incitement—and claimed to do so on behalf of American Jews.

The New York Post reported a Bronx judge released the man accused of committing numerous Jewish hate crimes because of New York's awful bail-reform laws:
The suspect, 29-year-old Jordan Burnette, was granted supervised release by Judge Tara Collins in Bronx Criminal Court — hours after he was ordered held on bail on 42 charges stemming from his alleged 11-day crime spree, said Patrice O’Shaughnessy, a spokeswoman for the Bronx District Attorney’s Office.

Linfield University in Oregon fired English professor Daniel Pollack-Pelzner this week "for cause" and for supposedly interfering "with the university's administration of its responsibilities." The firing comes after Pollack-Pelzner complained about alleged sexual misconduct by a member of the board of trustees. But apparently, an allegation that the school president has made anti-Semitic remarks really set off his superiors.

This past Sunday, March 14, 2021, marked the 2021 Grammys award ceremony. Usually, I pay exactly zero attention to celebrity awards shows, but this year's event deserves a mention. After a year marked by ever-increasing anti-Semitic incidents and the continued normalization of leftist Jew-hate, the Recording Academy decided that what the show really needed was a special performance by disgraced former Women's March leader, Louis Farrakhan-supporter, and (as far as I can tell) non-musician Tamika Mallory.

The saga continues: California's Department of Education has released yet another iteration of its neo-Marxist-inspired, Critical Theory-based Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum for public schools. Even after five years of work (and who knows how much money) the latest (fourth!) version of the ESMC—to be voted on next week—has managed, somehow, to be worse than the last.

Over the years, Legal Insurrection has covered Tufts University and its many controversies time and time again. This time, Tufts' radical anti-Israel student group, Students for Justice in Palestine, may have outdone them all— with its jaw-dropping, months-long campaign to rid Tufts student government of an elected officer for the simple fact of his Jewish Zionist identity.

As the spring 2021 college semester unfolds, universities around the country have organized events to commemorate Black History Month (rightly so). But at Northeastern University, a new "intersectional" student group took the opportunity to host radical anti-Israel activist Angela Davis, known for her frequent calls for the destruction of the Jewish state.

The California public school and university systems have seen their fair share of controversy—from outrage at the Islamist Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) involvement in a San Diego "anti-bullying" program to blowback against the Burbank Unified School District's practice of temporarily discontinuing the teaching of classic books. Now, the state's Department of Education is back in the hot-seat as its much-reviled "Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum (ESMC) " has once again made headlines for its reliance on the neo-Marxist (so-called) academic discipline known as "Critical Ethnic Studies."

The Tufts University chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) has proven itself to be one of the strongest advocates of "Deadly Exchange," a false campaign started by anti-Zionist Jewish Voice for Peace, claiming that Israel and American Jewish groups are responsible for alleged unlawful police violence in the U.S. against minority communities. Tufts SJP reframed this campaign by claiming Israel directly threatens the "safety" of students by "militarizing" and training American campus police to be racist.
