Evanston, Illinois

Almost 20 antisemitic incidents were recorded at Northwestern University over the last two years. SJP hosted Rasmea Odeh, a convicted Palestinian terrorist who helped kill two university students in Jerusalem in 1969, for an on–campus event in May 2017. Yet as Odeh urged her audience to confront not only Israel, but also “American Zionism,” some 150 students, faculty, and administrators, including the university’s president, attended a vigil for her victims. Days later, NU’s Buffett Institute for Global Studies, African American Studies department, and others sponsored a talk wherein Israel was accused of “brown washing” and being a “white supremacist” state. In February 2015, the school’s Student Government Senate passed a divestment resolution targeting Israel. (Photo credit: Wikipedia.)
