Anti-Semitism: UCLA Student Board Bars a Jew For Being a Jew

by | 1st, March 2015

Anti-Semitism is now accepted. Jews got a good run after the war. But the USA is now once again rife with anti-Semitism.

The video below show UCLA’s student council examining Rachel Beyda’s appliction for a role on the university’s judicial board. She is good enough. She is qualified enough. But, you know, she’s a Jew.

Says one judge:

“I just worry about her affiliations… [she is] a Jewish student and very active in the Jewish community.”

Hay, it’s not anti-Semitism, dummy, it’s all about Izzzzzzzrael :

Fabienne Roth, Manjot Singh, Negeen Sadeghi-Movahed and Sofia Moreno Haq all raised concerns about confirming Beyda’s appointment to UCLA’s student government judicial board. Roth pointed to an example case from last May and argued that two students who had gone on sponsored trips to Israel should not have been allowed to vote on a resolution that involved targeting Israel with Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions measures.

Ah, the BDS movement that seeks to silence Israeli academics, censor individual academic freedom and so delegitimate the state of Israel.
