The president of the University de Liege in Belgium condemned a planned anti-Semitic event.

The president of the University of Liege in Belgium said he was “appalled” at philosophy students for staging a mock Gaza-themed initiation ritual of newcomers.

The invitation to the event, scheduled for Tuesday, was couched in an anti-Semitic language, reading ‘’your goal is to avoid the big bad Jew,” according to the European Jewish Press..


“You’ll be walking in the shoes of a little Palestinian. The goal of your evening is to avoid the big bad Jew and reclaim your home,’’ the invitation stated.

University’s president Albert Corhay demanded the cancellation of the event and added that students involved will be summoned in the coming days.

In a statement, the Union of Jewish Students in Belgium declared: “The student body has a tradition of humorous initiations. Here, however, we are dealing with something else: a Manichaean and anti-Semitic vision of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

  1. No university should allow anything to poison the minds of students. We know some professors have a larger, anti-Semitic agenda, and they should not be allowed tenure at any place where young minds are supposed to learn.

  2. There is such a thing as a "pier review" by the various departments they work for. That same department will usually know what their people are up to. Somebody on campus saw this, and cancelled the event. The person responsible for it needs to go elsewhere.
