The recent conflict between Gaza and Israel has led to a rise of anti-Israel activity nationwide, especially on college campuses, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) reports.

More than 100 anti-Israel demonstrations across the U.S. have occurred recently, including more than one-third on college campuses. Some campus demonstrators compared Israelis to Nazis, while some students and professors openly expressed support for Hamas, a Palestinian terrorist group.

“The latest conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza has reignited anti-Israel passions on campus,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. The recent rise of anti-Israel campus activity follows an October 2012 report by The American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise (AICE) that found little to no anti-Israel activity on campus over the past year.

However, “Anti-Israel student groups will likely seek to capitalize on the momentum surrounding the Gaza conflict by pushing with renewed intensity their anti-Israel tactics and campaigns,” Foxman said.
