Non-Jewish New Orleans University Sophomore Creates “Allies for Israel” (VIDEO)
by Zach Pontz
Below is a video of a speech given by Chloé Simone Valdary, a University of New Orleans sophomore – who also happens to be non-Jewish and African-American — who created the campus-based group “Allies for Israel.” It is comprised of both Jews and non-Jews and it’s aim is to fight BDS, anti-Israel sentiment and anti-Semitism on campus.
The speech took place during an event on Monday titled “Declare Your Freedom.” During the rousing and unambiguous speech, Valdary warned,”anti-Semitism is rising, ladies and gentlemen. Jew-hatred is spreading. That thing we said would never happen again is happening. In Europe, in Hungary, Britain, Spain—anti-Semitism has increased. Last year there were 386 anti-Semitic acts in France alone. Up 45% from the previous year. In the Middle East Mein Kampf is a bestseller, and Hitler is routinely praised.”
