JNS.orgStudent exchanges between the George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Palestinian Al-Quds University, which have not materialized since being offered in 2008, “would need to be evaluated” following the recent Nazi-style rally on the Al-Quds campus in Jerusalem.

“The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences offers student exchanges at medical schools around the world. In 2008, the school and Al-Quds University offered students the opportunity to study at either school. There have been no student exchanges between the schools, and given the reporting we have seen about recent events, exchanges would need to be evaluated,” Lisa Anderson, media relations coordinator for the GW medical school, told JNS.org.

Brandeis University and Syracuse University both suspended their Al-Quds partnerships after the Nazi-style rally. Brandeis said it considered a statement about the rally by Al-Quds President Sari Nusseibeh—who highlighted “vilification campaigns by Jewish extremists” against the university, rather than exclusively addressing the rally—to be “unacceptable and inflammatory.” Bard College in New York said it would maintain its Al-Quds partnership, and York University in Toronto told JNS.org that it is “investigating” the matter.

    They ALREADY invited an Egyptian Nazi to speak there at GW so I’m sure this presents no problem for them. After all, as a nominally Catholic institution, they’re not going to respond to pressure by or about Jews.

    “Evaluate”??? They’ve gotta be kidding. How can an allegedly respectable university (with a relatively large percentage of Jewish students and alumni) justify dealings with a university which encourages jihad, terrorism, and genocide?
