The University of California, San Diego is home to an active Jewish community and opened a 24-hour dining hall with kosher and halal offerings last January. Yet it also employs 15 faculty members who have openly endorsed boycotts of Israel. In March, a guest lecturer at the school — invited by a professor whose office door is adorned with a poster for the play "I Heart Hamas" — claimed that in 1948, the Jewish state was engaged in the "removal of indigenous Palestinian peoples" and said Israel and the US have employed "a similar strategy of genocide." Jewish students at the school have also found swastikas on campus, and last May had to contend with a "Justice in Palestine Week" hosted by the Muslim Student Association and SJP. The event included a 100 ft. "apartheid wall" and a call to participate in the Salt Water Challenge, which expressed solidarity with hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners, many of whom have been convicted of various security offenses, including murder.
