Urbana and Champaign, Illinois

UIUC has seen a steady stream of attempts to demonize and delegitimize Israel. In 2014-15, the school made headlines when it first offered a teaching position to anti-Israel activist Steven Salaita and then retracted it, when the board discovered a series of antisemitic tweets he had posted following Operation Protective Edge, Israel's 2014 war against Hamas in Gaza. More recently, after participating in "A Roundtable Discussion of Racism, Antisemitism: On Campus and Beyond” -- the president of the school's Students for Justice in Palestine chapter announced: "I have no will, no desire and, quite frankly, no f***ing time to deal with Zionist bullshit." Last year, the menorah at the school's Chabad house was vandalized three times. However, there is a strong grassroots pro-Israel student movement at UIUC, with a supportive on-campus Jewish leadership. (Photo credit: Wikipedia.)
