20. Stanford University

Stanford, California

Life at Stanford is reportedly “uncomfortable” for anyone who supports Israel. The anti-Israel atmosphere at the private research university in California is spread mainly by the school’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. In addition, the student government, which successfully passed a BDS motion, has exhibited antisemitic behavior. One student senator was questioned about how her Jewish identity would affect her student government role where supporting divestment from Israel was concerned. Another student senator objected to a resolution opposing antisemitism, on the grounds that it was "valid" to consider whether Jews control the government and the media. Though he was not re-elected, he did garner many hundreds of votes. Some faculty members, too, are outspoken BDS promoters, including among them leading anti-Israel activist Professor David Palumbo-Liu. Nevertheless, Stanford Business School students recently returned from an extensive visit to the Jewish state, and it is reported that Jewish presence at the school is strong.
