In recent years, the University of Chicago has hosted leading BDS supporters like Omar Barghouti, featured annual “Israel Apartheid Week” displays, and saw threats of violence directed at a Palestinian human rights activist who criticized the Palestinian Authority. The local SJP chapter and pro-divestment coalition regularly promote libels against the Jewish state in the school’s student newspaper, and successfully petitioned their student government to pass a divestment resolution in 2016. “Students in the room that day called us racists and murderers and ‘apartheid supporters,’ for even thinking we, as Jews, could have a voice in the discussion over the one small state we call our own,” recalled one student who witnessed the vote. In June, the pro-divestment coalition said it sent hundreds of letters to members of U of C's investment committee, pressuring them "to divest from apartheid." (Photo credit: Wikipedia.)
