4. McGill University

Montreal, Quebec, Canada

McGill University has been described by students as one of the most contentious institutions in Canada for Jews and Zionists. One McGill student said she has been repeatedly targeted by members of anti-Israel groups -- who call her a “Zionist b****,” for example -- due to her advocacy on behalf of the Jewish state. Open support for Israel prompts protests on campus, such as a recent incident in which access to a pro-Israel “peace wall” was blocked. Anti-Israel activists repeatedly bring BDS motions before the student government, and finally passed one this year -- but when the student body later failed to ratify it, the activists vowed to continue their campaign. The school’s student newspaper, the McGill Daily -- against which Jewish students filed a complaint -- recently rejected charges of antisemitism, but openly admitted to censoring pro-Israel content on the grounds that Zionism is a product of “settler colonial ideology.” (Photo credit: Wikipedia.)
