At one level, you could put this post in the “tell me something I don’t already know” category.

For several years I have been documenting anti-Israel activity on campus, typically part of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and carried out by groups like Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP).

Disruption of Israeli or pro-Israel speakers and events is becoming all too common on college campuses, including by groups like Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and similar groups. The purpose is to make sure that Israeli and pro-Israel points of view cannot be presented without incident, and to create a...

Joy Karega is the “social justice writing” assistant professor at Oberlin College who posted blatantly anti-Semitic conspiracy claims on her Facebook page.

Last week The Tower magazine broke the story of a “social justice writing” professor at Oberlin, Joy Karega, who engaged in some bizarre anti-Semitic and anti-Israel commentary on Facebook.

The short version is that Karega, at least based on what she posts on Facbeook, sees Zionist and Jewish conspiracies almost everywhere, including...

One question I frequently get is something along the lines of “How did college campuses get this way?”

And by “this way” people refer to the leftist intolerance of opposing viewpoints, now expressed through the misnomered “social justice” movement and Social Justice Warriors. My response is pretty consistent, that we abandoned the...

The anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement always has used disruption and intimidation on campus as a tactic to initimidate Israeli and pro-Israel speakers and students on campus. Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is a leader in this regard, but hardly alone.

There have been two developments in the past...
