Jewish DePaul Student: ‘I No Longer Felt Safe on this Campus’

One Jewish DePaul student said, "This entire [BDS] campaign and entire sit-in going on is totally unsafe for Jewish students."

This week, students at DePaul University are being asked to get involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and vote on a non-binding resolution that asks the university to divest from companies that do business in the Jewish State. But for some Jewish students on the Lincoln Park, Chicago campus, the campaign behind the proposed measure has created an atmosphere of intimidation, not free speech.

Rachel (last name withheld), a sophomore at DePaul, explained that the “DePaul Divest” campaign, begun two months ago, has transformed this campus from one that used to be “safe and community-giving.”

“This entire campaign and entire sit-in going on in the SAC (Schmitt Academic Center) is totally unsafe for Jewish students and I have had a lot of Jewish students text me and call me today and tell me they are not comfortable walking through that part of our campus, which is really disheartening.”

Rachel added, “About two months ago when SJP (Students for Justice in Palestine) started the ‘DePaul Divest’ campaign, I no longer felt safe on this campus and I no longer felt I could be a proud Jewish student.”

During a Tuesday afternoon public forum on campus about the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, freshmen student Ally (last name withheld) told a pro-Israel panel that as a Jewish student, she feels intimidated on the Lincoln Park campus. (Note: SJP did not respond to an invitation to participate according to moderator Professor Patrick Callahan.)

When asked if she feels as safe as the other students on campus, Ally said, “I do kind of feel as a Jewish student that I am being targeted on campus. I feel that a lot of questions are being directed to me and I am constantly on the defensive on campus,” she explained. “I have to defend myself, my Judaism, my pride in Israel every day and it’s getting a little bit exhausting.”

Ally continued, “I’d like to live and go to a university where everybody can have their own opinions and have a diverse community and feel safe.”

Accusations of intimidation tactics against the BDS movement are not new.

Last month Jewish students were allegedly targeted on the New York University campus. Mock eviction notices were placed under doors in their dorm, causing Jewish students to “feel violated and unsafe.” A similar incident at Northeastern University in March led to that SJP chapter being suspended.

During the investigation of this story, supporters of DePaul Divest holding a rally in a popular “social gathering and study area” became agitated when they noticed photos and video being taken of their rally.

“The outright harassment and intimidation of pro-Israel students is commonplace wherever BDS rears its hateful head,” said Brett Cohen, National Campus Program Director for the pro-Israel group StandWithUs. “Shocking events have occurred at Vassar College over the past few weeks, ranging from BDS supporters violently shouting down opponents and posting actual neo-Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda images to their social media accounts.  A hostile takeover of the Student Government agenda at the University of Michigan last April included BDS supporters shouting racial epithets at student senators.”

SJP DePaul treasurer Hanna (last name withheld) did not respond to an email request for comment regarding Jewish students “feeling intimidated” or concerns about a lack of “open and honest dialogue” on campus.

When asked about charges of anti-Semitism in an earlier on-campus interview, Hanna stated, “There are three goals to the BDS movement. The right of return for the Palestinians as stipulated by U.N. resolution 194; the rights of Palestinian citizens within Israel to full equality; and the end of the occupation. This is a rights-based movement; there is nothing anti-Semitic about it.”

Student voting on the divestment resolution concludes on Friday. DePaul’s President Dennis Holtschneider has stated he “will not be able to honor it one way or the other without first being satisfied that the university community has explored all the matters at issue, and come to a thoughtful, informed, recommendation.”

    Not feeling safe anymore on university grounds because of the pathway one is on and particularly for a woman can be a challenge. One could just weather the storm of malcontent and it will pass or another option is to appoint a rabbi to address all questions and concerns targeted to the Jewish students and he would take care of that matter and the other alternative is to investigate if America has a Charter of Rights and Freedoms that would protect the Jewish students from such happenings and a lawyer would be handling that matter. Final solution is transfer to another university where such runs of interference do not exist. Hope all comes to pass soon and the matter becomes last weeks news. Next!!

  2. MelanieHannahBemel says:

    I wonder if DePaul decides to divest itself from Israeli products, whether that divestment will extend to the medical school and university affiliated hospitals. A SIGNIFICANT amount of medical devices and technology come out of Israel.

  3. LKohenZazaYishav says:

    It’s an invasion of cancer of socialist, evil pathetic insane people who behind are Muslim who want “Sharia inferno laws” in America in almost all universities in the US. University authorities are prostitutes receiving lots of money from these evil insane crap to do all this!

  4. The Jewish DePaul Student..should RELAX G-d is in CONTROL…No weapon Fashion against US shall prosper.

  5. MarcelSchachter says:

    ignore…..

  6. KevinLoos says:

    Allow me to give some insight as a DePaul Student. The divest referendum was targeted at companies taking advantage of illegal settlements in Palestine. Most Israel companies remain unaffected. The companies that were targeted include Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Hewlett Packard. Also Jewish students are not and should not feel threatened to be at DePaul. There is no resentment towards Israel nor Jewish students, but where there are human rights violations occurring we must take notice.

  7. Sue Johnson says:

    This is sad. I am sure there are other schools in the US that are more tolerant, even welcoming. I would not give DePaul the honor of my presence if I were you.

  9. Why she’s an X in bold face roman new times font. DePaul. All the books and she never read why Jesus wept.

  10. Sounds like “hate crimes” to me!

  11. Everyone has the right for life liberty and the pursuit of happiness and education too! Whether at public or private school settings! It’s hard enough to pay for and get a great education for any student she is a bright smart student and should be treated and respected that way as she inturn respects others! Don’t play Religion race or sexism play conversation and building friendships that’s the right way fair way and correct way to learn and advance to your goal of graduation!

  12. Gary Gien says:

    Carry some pepper spray with you don’t be afraid of these savage anti Semites

  13. Romans, Jesus, & this? A red ” X ” ? is

    Divinci involved with some kind of code?

  14. Gene Strong says:

    Liberals are as dangerous to israel.as.are muslims…perhaps more so..

  15. Bob Maram says:

    Terrible. DePaul was Always known as a school that elcomed diversity. Jews were Always welcomed there.

  16. AlanNKachalsky says:

    Perhaps when they ‘divest’ they can invest in some of those fine Palestinian technology companies. Oh . . wait a minute . . the Muslims don’t invent anything. They just kill Infidels. Never mind.

  17. I see, my dear. It is free-speech to bully Jewish students? You are not responsible for the PA problem, but as racists, your schoolmates are responsible for making you feel unsafe an out of place. This, too, shall pass. Every Jew has always had to justify themselves, Judaism, and Israel every day of our lives out in the world, even in the US. You are a lovely young woman and very courageous. Stay the course and keep to your beliefs. Of course, if it gets to bad, you can always leave…but with your head held high and your heart pure.

  18. Bob Talbot says:

    שבת שלום

  19. AlanNKachalsky says:

    A better response would be to form an organization of of UNITED INFIDELS to seek justice for all the victims of MUSLIM JIHAD and publicize the dozens of horrific acts these savages do on a daily basis. Surely there must be enough Christians and Jews who are fed up with this Islamic Victim Scam!! It’s time to fight fire with fire! The best defense is a good offense!

  20. There never was a Palestine state and God willing never will be….read your history guys…the Arabs themselves threw these people to the wolves themselves! Anyone remember the holocaust? Blaming Jews was a scapegoat the nazis used for all their troubled!!! And no I am not Jewish…I am a Christ follower!!!!!

  21. keep be proude to be a jewish girl and god bless you.

  22. Dror Aluf says:

    I felt that way at my school too

  23. Ira Kurtz says:

    As Obama brings more Islamic scum to America every day.

  24. Ira Abramson says:

  25. I support Jewish people and Israel. I am sad that she feels this way. Stay strong young lady. God Bless.

  26. I support Jewish people and Israel. I am sad that she feels this way. Stay strong young lady. God Bless.

  27. Ira Abramson says:

    Ira is right, to much Islamic scum, unhappy in their countries and now coming to America to try to put us back to the first century. What have they contributed to society?

  28. Have faith in GOD, take Karate lessons like my daughter , and carry Maize

  30. Our organization MASADA .. Lives …only a little over 200 strong, our goal is 2000, and if you are a Jew you know why.. GOD bless you

  31. shameful – suggest you enroll in another school next fall and tell these fools goodbye

  32. PaulGainer175 says:

    Alan N Kachalsky I agree wholeheartedly. I’m disgusted with how leftists around the world seem to deem “The Palestinian Cause” as something grand, while at the same time turning a blind eye towards the great injustices that are going on not just within Islamic societies themselves, but also the injustices that Islamic jihad has done to Israeli and the rest of the world at large!

  33. Even Brandeis has taken a bad turn.

  34. Morry Barak says:

    I see the a-rab scum around there. the women dress with 2-3 kaffiyahs gaza chic. Perfect for Chicago.

  35. Es necesario que seamos fuertes y valientes y que defendamos aquello que amamos,pero debemos estar consientes de que si la violencia aumenta debemos ponernos a salvo , resguardar nuestras vidas y pedir ayuda a otras personas y denunciar estos hechos.Eres joven pero recuerda siempre que hay gente en todo el mundo que esta luchando para que tu tengas seguridad ,los Judíos tenemos el Mandato de Permanecer Unidos y de Velar por cada uno de nosotros . SHALOM … JUNTOS SOMOS FUERTES!

  36. Transfer to Hebrew University Jerusalem Israel Hang Tough

  37. Leda Tilton says:

    With all due respect to the Jewish students on DePaul students…what the hell do you expect from a Catholic University? These folks have been harassing, and killing us for 2000 years. Didn’t you pay attention in shul? Why should 2014 be any different than 1492 and 1938?

  43. oh she is just a spoiled jew bitch, she can easily transfer, to any other universty, what will i say after i converted to judaism if she see,s how i live and facin everyday what will dis bitch jew will say ooh

  44. I don’t feel safe anywhere. So many racist skin heads and others who plain hate Jews. Sometimes I feel like wearing my kipah is just a target for hate.

  45. Very sad commentary. Perhaps you should change your school.

  46. Don’t be afraid.YHWH bless you.

  47. Don’t worry God has Israel’s back. They don’t need our Govt. The prayers of God’s people availeth much.

  48. You are very brave continue to hold your head high and be proud of your Jewish heritage well done

  49. JoanAnthony says:

    DePaul tu te estas ganando muchos enemigos entre ellos a mi deja al pueblo de ISRAEL EN PAZ NO TE METAS CON LOS JUDIOS O TE ARREPENTIRAN …ESTAS LEYENDO ESTO INUTIL…GRABATELO MUY BIEN…ES LA PRIMERA Y ULTIMA VEZ QUE TE LO DIGO

  50. Get out of that obnoxious atmosphere and find a school that is not as ignorant

  51. I am sorry for that but must admit I do not feel safe here in my own country either.

  52. may the lord give you strength and protection all day long in Jesus name amen.

  53. Naomi Smith says:

    You’re right, and sadly I have had NO problems with my school, Grand Canyon University, and they’re a Christian university.

  54. Eduardo Mazo says:

    truly, encroaching your religion of U.K.

  55. Loren Renee says:

    This is awful, kudos for the courage to share. It is so important. Jewish students should make known what schools are unsafe and patronize elsewhere. Support Amcha innitiative – they have a fb page. I am so nervous about sending my teen to college in a few years. BDS has created a whole generation of antisemetic sociopaths.

  56. It’s a shame that people have to be so racist that you cannot be who you are and have the right to express yourself.

  57. My generation had the same bull but we had Jewish Defense League Chapters and no one excused my French dared to F’k with us on Campus! Much like Israel everyone sits around and does nothing in response to the recent rash of Anti Semitism! If you do not combat it at the source it will rear its ugly head! So keep sitting back and letting these s perpetuate their negative spin and do nothing about it! See how that works for you being above it all and leaving everything for others to combat you indignation! Wake younger generation before history repeats itself! I blame the individuals that tolerate this behavior and do nothing in retaliating to circumvent it!


  58. Do you think you can live on occupied Native land and not have your reality grossly distorted?

  59. Maybe it’s time to go to Israeli university? You know,there you’ll be at home!

  60. Then if anything is transparent, anti-Semitic, Why Rachel is so afraid, why is she thinking about be a Jewish and defend her Judaism, is so exhausting, Why? When asked about charges of anti-Semitism in an earlier on-campus interview, Hanna stated, “There are three goals to the BDS movement. The right of return for the Palestinians as stipulated by U.N. resolution 194; the rights of Palestinian citizens within Israel to full equality; and the end of the occupation. This is a rights-based movement; there is nothing anti-Semitic about it.”

  61. I love yo kick anti Semite ass

  62. Sandra McCoy says:

    Should have attended Liberty University

  63. These divestment students behave like the Nazi’s of the 1930’s. There problem is ignorance and ant semitism . They never read history .

  64. Roman Druker says:

    Jewish students should organize and transfer en-masse to another institution .

  65. Roman Druker says:

    Anti Defamation League should help Jewish students organize and establish efficient transfer conduits to institutions that do not cultivate policies aimed at hurting Israel. This should be done at every institution that decided to target Israel. Jewish tuition dollars should not support institutions that would subject Jewish students to such harassment .

  66. May HaShem be at your side each step you take.

  67. Janet Hart says:

    BDS is awful and should not be allowed on American campuses. They are hateful and antisemetic.

  68. College campus’ are becoming dangerous for Christians and Jews, just as in Nazi Germany, the hate speech laws were overturned in the Federal Supreme Court giving us the legal rights to debate the issues, but just like Nazi “good speak laws,” criminalizing Christianity and Judaism for saying homosexuality is sin, both are being stalked down and bullied just as in Nazi Germany, and these young gay activist Christian Jewish hating Democrats are akin to the all gay regiment in the Nazi military that bullied Christians and Jews in Nazi Germany, lead Bible burnings, and forced the arrest of Christians and Jews for violating good speak laws, as those laws, like the now overturned hate speech laws, made their religion illegal due to scriptures identifying homosexuality as sin. These young gay liberals hate Judaism, Christianity, and anything that says homosexuality is sin, and they are not against using violence to stop anyone from opposing their Democrat pro gay antichrist system viewpoint.

  69. she should sue for racial and religious villification

  70. Pete Dinglas says:

    Find another place on earth, sure there must be a friendly nation somewhere.

  71. This makes me sad… 🙁

  72. MandyJacobs says:

    What a shame I was going to donate
    50 Million Dollars to this UNI I would rather give my
    Money to another UNI in the States where you haven’t got a bunch of BIN LARDENS bullies
    Antisemetic Nazis who run the place the Lecturers and
    Students and the BDS .

  73. MandyJacobs says:

    Rachel you have to stand and be counted
    And the other people who are being Bullied and Threatend . If it is that bad I would go to the police
    And you can sue the ones that are involved
    Including the head who’s running this place
    You can sue them for Horasment threatening behaviour
    Go to someone who can give you advice
    You need the other students to go with you and all your families . If no one does anything this is going
    To get worse . This is Happening In every
    UNI in the UK . Good luck xxx

  74. James Fendel says:

    defend with hart with pride

  75. very sick and sad…how could they do that to her?

  76. Welcome to the real world, kid.

  77. THERE WILL BE AN UNFIGURABLE FORM OF HEBREW!

  78. Sue Johnson says:

    Sadly, this is true.

  79. Seder is 4 cups but seder can be it is consummated which is/can mean – I AM READY!!!!!!!!!! FERNANDEZ Don’t Forget the A or on this Fernandez. dez and the e or the z or the Fernan.

  80. Seder is 4 cups but seder can be it is consummated which is/can mean – I AM READY!!!!!!!!!! FERNANDEZ Don’t Forget the A or on this Fernandez. dez and the e or the z or the Fernan.

  81. Sue Johnson says:

    Transfer–and be very vocal as to why. No other Jewish student–or Christian who loves Israel, should go there. See if you can get a list of alumni and their addresses. Get the Jewish alums to support you. Hit them where it hurts: the checkbook.

  82. ReynaldoM.Barroga says:

    Rachel stand firm we are supporting you in prayer! God Bless Israel. God will protect his chosen people.

  83. This Story is totally wrong the Pali’s Cant Get Along With The Juas and becareful in starting wars, that’s the devil way of starting his actions……….. I can take a jewish family in my house and can live with them safetly. Seder is good but becareful with the American system 90 percent are lies. Its all one perpous GOD.

  84. Sue Johnson says:

    It is time to learn from the past and not repeat it. This works both ways. Remember the Holocaust and the Crusades. I am a protestant, but my own church has it’s own problems, too! We are all guilty. But the time to stop is now!

  85. How sad, it’s not the education you want constantly for your child

  86. No one , let alone any children should go through this!!! Always our children get hurt!!
    Wake up adults !!!

  87. No one , let alone any children should go through this!!! Always our children get hurt!!
    Wake up adults !!!

  88. Sue Johnson says:

    God said He would bless those who bless Israel and curse those who persecute her, They should be very afraid.

  89. Well, DePaul is a church sponsored school. Too bad they don’t emphasize tolerance and interfaith learning in their students. But there are plenty of Jewish schools around. Try one!

  90. What is happening on these campuses? Have they all gone mad or is Arab money so pervasive?

  91. They seem to forget Sept 11, Munich etc all within recent memory.

  92. hmmm, our granddaughter said the same thing about her college experience… lot of antisemitism… VASSAR no less…

  93. Disgusting. Why are we pandering to Palestinians?

  94. TanyaSper says:

    he Jewish News of Greater Phoenix today published the second in a series of 3 new articles I’ve written. Together these provide supporters of Israel with a simple and powerful argument in the hope that they will repeat it. The argument, that I have refined over time and found effective, can be summarized into 2 points:

    1. Jews are not foreign occupiers in the land of Israel but it’s original native inhabitants

    2. The Palestinian goal has always been genocide against them.

  95. MiriamLottner says:

    Women are prohibited from driving in Saudi Arabia by law. Being a homosexual in any Arab country in the Middle East is a crime punishable by DEATH and /or public stoning. 1 million Syrians have been butchered in cold blood by Assad and his troops. Christian Arabs are routinely attacked, harassed and killed by roving Islamic mobs in Egypt. Where is your supposed sentiment towards human rights violations….when consuming that Arab oil? Your hypocrisy is beyond outrageous. .03% of all arabs killed since 1948 have been killed by Israel. And those that have have been fighting in wars -not once STARTED by Israel. 99.97% of all arabs killed since 1948 have been killed by other Arabs…get your facts straight and in the meantime, please, stop using any and all medicine, technology, and science we have developed and shared with the world. We need neither your business, nor your intellectual dishonesty.

  96. KevinLoos says:

    Miriam Lottner I am confused. Where in my comment did you see me denying Arab humanity crimes. No one denies them and those are condemned also. They do not excuse the crimes in palestine. I support Israel and their right to exist, but when the country commits crimes I will point them out.

  97. BillBilek says:

    Kevin, no doubt you will be able to point out to us all which competent court has adjudicated the issue of settlements, and handed down a verdict declaring them to be “illegal”. Also, when was this verdict handed down?

    Also please clarify what the borders of this “Palestine” that you note are; where the capital is; which territory is its “government” controlling, etc.

  98. RonKall says:

    Kevin Loos there are nno illegal settlements in Judea and Samaria. Only Jordan illegally occupied those areas and lost them in a war with Israel. You are a phony or just brainwashed , otherwise you would know that the invented people called Palestinians are only there to destroy Israel and for no other reason.. Worry about the slaughter of non muslims in arab Muslim countries before jumping on the phony anti Israel bandwagon!

  99. EthanPerks says:

    Wake up Kevin. Jews are being attacked around the world. And Palestinian and Arab Jew hatred precedes Israel.

  100. alenakrasaviza says:

    Kevin Loos ,
    If you “support”Israel’s right to exist,then,leave alone your hypocrisy and let it use its right to protect themselves from the barbarians and the killers of innocents.

  101. MiriamLottner says:

    Kevin Loos Condemned with what exactly? Are you boycotting Arab oil? Petroleum based products? Have you protested the billions of dollars the US has given to Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia while human rights violations to hundreds of millions of people have taken place? And if comparing scale…just how big do you think the entire population of Palestine (Jewish and Arab) was in 1948? I’m still waiting for the list of “human rights” crimes in Palestine. I live here -you live 10,000 miles away. The only thing I see is billions of dollars of aid given the Palestinian organizations…squandered away by their leaders while hundreds of thousands of people suffer in Gaza (note, Gaza has been Israeli free for more than 7 years…the only people violating their human rights are fellow ARABS!!!) . I see Arabs walking, working, living freely in Israel while Palestinians in Gaza and Area A have no access to electricity, water, or food because of their leadership. I see 400 trucks of AID paid for by my taxes cross the border to Gaza each week…..while in return they send rockets to my house and threaten my children. Wake up my friend to the Sha’aria Law that is on your doorstep. To the fact that their ultimate goal is death to all infidels (including you) within a generation or two. When the US uses drone strikes to take out terrorist targets on foreign soil (like Afganistan and Iraq) that is OK because you are fighting a war on someone else’s soil (apparently, to hell and who cares with the civilians also killed). But when Israel responds to MISSILE strikes or suicide bombers against our civilians on our own soil…that is a CRIME? Was it a crime for the US to respond to Pearl Harbor? To 9/11? Like I said, keep your BDS and your hypocrisy. Please just turn in your cellphone and your laptop to the nearest Israeli tech depot. Feel free to use your Arab blood oil as a substitute. I hope you never have to run for cover from an incoming missile, or worry that a backfiring car is an exploding suicide bomber.

  102. AlanNKachalsky says:

    Kevin Loos , Where is the BDS movement against the 57 Muslim Countries whose persecution of Christians cannot even be compared to this fictitious Israel persecution of the so-called Palestinians (by which you of course mean the same Muslims who whose so-called religion is commanded to wage eternal war against JEWS AND CHRISTIANS AND EVERY OTHER RELIGION? WHERE IS THE EQUIVALENT BDS MOVEMENT, KEVIN, WHERE IS IT WHERE IS IT WHERE IS IT?

  103. CatMando366 says:

    When are people going to learn? What the hell is it going to take to know that al of this crap has nothing to do with Israel. This, all of this is about hating us!!~

  104. OfraBendavid says:

    You full of crap, Mr, LOOSER!

  105. AlanNKachalsky says:

    I think suing is the wrong response. This is a war of ideas. Truth is on the side of the Jews AND THE CHRISTIANS. At every opportunity such BDS BullShiite needs to be countered by a larger and more threatening number of demonstrators carrying posters of The Burning Twin Towers, and some horrific pictures from the Boston Marathon Massacre and The Beslan School Massacre in Russia, where these savages killed 318 hostages, including 186 children. THESE SAVAGES AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT THEM MUST BE CONFRONTED WITH THIS EVERY TIME THEY SHOW THEIR EVIL UGLY FACES!!

  106. OfraBendavid says:

    I agree, that is the greed that took over so many Americans today!

  107. OfraBendavid says:

    Mandy, Why would you want donate money to any University? most of them R liberals, biased against Jews and Israel, along with their leftists and radicals professors, How about donate That money to the IDF. if you care about protecting Jews? Thank you And G-d bless.

  108. JackieRozell says:

    Kevin Loos Why aren’t you calling for divestment and condemnation on an international basis against the Arab communities that downright KILL women for being raped or running away from abusive husbands; hang seven year old children as spies; mutilate the genitals of twelve year old girls to they won’t enjoy sex; murder their own citizens who dare work at a job in Israel?

    Those are more worthy of rabid activism than the attacks against Israel and Jews.

  109. AlanNKachalsky says:

    Thank you, Paul Gainer. We must find a way to shame the liberal Muslim-lovers from their ‘double-standard’ enemy-aiding and emboldening anti-Christian anti-Jew stances!

  110. VictoriaKavanagh says:

    Concordia College in Bronxville, NY and City University of New York are not anti-semitic and have diversity of students.

  111. There has to be Muslim influence here, since all countries have been invaded with Muslims, BDS has raised it’s ugly head.

  112. MiriamLottner says:

    Kevin Loos http://jezebel.com/iranian-actress-may-face-public-flogging-for-peck-on-th-1580884138?utm_campaign=socialflow_jezebel_facebook&utm_source=jezebel_facebook&utm_medium=socialflow Find me another country in the ME where citizens have equal voting/education/representation/reproductive/marriage rights……as Israel. The “Palestinians” are being denied basic rights by Palestinian leadership. Where are the BILLIONS of dollars of international aid squandered by their leadership over the last 20 years?? In the private bank accounts of their leaders..while their people suffer. Israel remains the only democracy in the Middle East. Every citizen of Israel has that equality and those freedoms. Arab or Jew. Spend a week in Gaza (without getting lynched for being an infidel) and then come back and tell me who is perpetrating human rights abuses. That actress will probably die for the huge crime of…..allowing someone to kiss her cheek. Get off your high horse and protest the abuse dammit. The real abuse happening all around you. Honor killings are happening in in Detroit…based on Shaaria. Can you BDS your own country??!!

    The human rights violations are found in the Palestinian Authority, I have personally seen it. In Israel everyone is treated the same. It’s the only democratic country in the Middle East. I have many Arab friends Who live or want to live in Israel.
    Often the news media is misleading and is not truthful!

    Loyola and the others aren’t better. When we visited a few weeks ago, it was wear the Hijab day on campus. 60 percent Catholic school no less.. We didn’t feel right sending kids there either..

  116. Polly Dorst says:

    This is a disgrace She can’t feel safe here in the US.. I’m ashamed

  117. Marina Fink says:

    You should see how much money is being poured in from the Saudis into the U.S . School systems. Look at the school books the kids are reading now, it would make your head spin.

  118. James Moden says:

    Time to transfer to another university that is more tolerant.

  119. AlanNKachalsky says:

    AC Stubbs, well, I guess you’re a better human being than me!! Because when I see a Muslim, I know that his people have been killing Christians and Jews and Buddhists and Sikhs all over the world for the last 1400 years, and I know that as nice as this individual is or appears to be . . . when he and his fellow Muslims reach a ‘critical mass’ in proportion to the ‘native population,’ the outcome will be the same as it is in the entire Middle East (with the exception of Israel). The Christians and Jews and other Infidels will be exterminated. If you wish to believe that these particular muslims, no matter how ‘nice’ they are, will change the character of this evil religion after 1400+ years of ISLAM doing what the Koran COMMANDS them to do, well, that’s one of the ‘layman’s definitions of insanity, or a corollary of it (“doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result”)

  120. Is this not racism. Wheres Al and Jesse

  121. SamCohen017 says:

    its time to go on the offense stop playing defense by allowing muslim students to intimidate jewish students.this has got to stop. .start by showing how muslims are ruthless murderers look to Syria Iraq Libya you have muslims killing muslims explain what would happen if you let these animals get a foot hold here in America. wake the people and let them know how muslims act ..life doesn’t matter to them killing innocent people is o.k. along as its an infidel.

    I am ashamed of these “Catholic” universities that are not really catholic.

  123. LeonieLachmish777 says:

    Hope loads of Jewish students at that uni will at least take a year at a University in Israel where they’ll be able to love being themselves and have the time of their life and see for themselves what Israel is like and how amazingly Israel functions as a democracy with equal rights for all its citizens, a tiny island of free speech and kindness in a huge desert of cruelty and denial of human rights in the countries surrounding us.

  124. AlanNKachalsky says:

    AC Stubbs, I’m waiting for your message.

  127. HarrisL.Cohen says:

    Campus presidents must protect their students. If they cannot they should leave their posts. College Boards of Directors must protect their students and the good names of their schools . Alumni must withhold contributions to campuses that turn on their Jewish students.
    Perhaps local government can protect their students.

  128. AC Stubbs says:

    Try The University of Texas

  129. Well, now DePaul students passed the resolution with a 54,2% vote. I suspect a white South African student would have felt the same as Rachel during the sanctions movement against racist South Africa, particularly one who took pride in South Africa.

    I suggest that she actually look at what Israel has been doing that has earned it increasing opposition across the planet. She might even join the BDS movement herself after doing so.

  130. AC Stubbs says:

    I adore many of my neighbors who were Islamic You can't put all with the BDS bozos

  131. Alan N Kachalsky The Palestinians had nothing to do with any of the crimes you mention. In invading Lebanon in 1982, the nice Jewish boys of the IDF murdered 18,000 Palestinians and Lebanese in the first few weeks of that war and later assisted the Lebanese Falangists in the massacre of 2, 000 at Sabra and Chatila

  132. YankeeDoodle says:

    DePaul University is a Catholic institution. Christians have fostered hatret for Jews for 2,000 years. It is already in there genes. Why not transfer to Yeshiva University?

  134. Ron Grant says:

    There is a difference between having to defend oneself and having to defend a policy or idea.One should not have to physically “defend” oneself on campus in America,unless it is from assault.One should not have to feel intimidated,either.But that is not the same as being criticized for a belief or moral/political position,e.g.Zionism,Occupation,etc. Which is it?

  135. AC Stubbs says:

    Alan N Kachalsky If you don't mind I am going to send you a message

  136. Lani Lowell says:

    Sue them! Start legal proceedings of discrimination against the university for not protecting you

  137. Elaine Sipes says:

    Very sad that hatred and intolerance exists on university campuses, where there is supposed to be freedom of expression. I doubt that students who practice Islam face the same discrimination that this young Jewish student does…

    The Jewish students should claim that the BDS movement is offensive to Jews and that it is insulting the Jewish homeland. Use language the same language that Muslims use.

  152. What seems obvious is that this is a movement being STIRRED UP against Israel by ??? as the grassroots. The present regime, also sponsoring JStreet? This is not a spontaneous movement. In addition to this, the apartheid state lie, and Israel as the oppressor. It is like raging fires we see all over the globe every year these days. Few of them are spontaneous. Most are lit by those who wish to destroy.

    I went to DePaul University and had a hate crime committed against me. In typical fashion, DePaul treated the incident like it wasn’t a big deal. Between this and the athletic department’s coverup of a potential sexual assault, I’m disassociating myself from the school.

  159. Chipper Sql says:

    DePaul was never like that and always had a fair share of very well qualified Jewish students. With this anti Israel attitude these students will head downstate to the University of Illinois in Champaign or University of Wisconsin. What a shame. Shame on Depaul for letting this happen.

  160. Chipper Sql says:

    Not a bad school but Illinois is better.
