JNS.org – The Undergraduate Students Association Council (USAC) at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution condemning antisemitism.

The resolution, which was drafted by members of Hillel and the USAC president Avinoam Baral, calls on the student government to fight antisemitism and for members of the USAC to attend diversity training and learn about the history of antisemitism, the Daily Bruin reported.

Passed in a 12-0 vote, the measure also condemned recent antisemitic incidents at University of California (UC) campuses, including the spray painting of swastikas on the building of the Jewish fraternity AEPi at UC Davis and the questioning of a Jewish applicant for UCLA’s student government on the basis of her religion.

The resolution approved at UCLA follows a similar bill passed in late February at UC Berkeley, whose student government also unanimously voted to condemn antisemitism.

  • It’s a positive step that they object to anti-Semitism, but some will follow MP Galloway’s game and say they loathe Israel but have nothing against Jews[outside Israel]. Years back the UK gave asylum to a Saudi ‘dissident’. He sent out to his many followers a weekly newsletter that, inter alia, called for every Muslim to kill one Jew. When informed he risked arrest under British Law, he adjusted his newletters to say every Muslim should kill one Jew outside the UK !!!! The UK deported him.

    I applaud this action but it should be duly enforced and dissidents should be punished by suspensions and if repeated by expulsion. The only way they will learn to respect the laws.

    How about publishing the names of the antisemitic student council members so that they are properly rewarded for their views?
