In February, the University of Washington's Students United for Palestinian Equal Rights (SUPER) group hosted a "Palestine Awareness Week," complete with an "Israel Apartheid Wall" and a lecture with Miko Peled, an activist who was disinvited from speaking at Princeton University in 2016 after tweeting that “Jews have reputation 4being sleazy thieves." SUPER had also assembled the same wall the previous year, yet according to the school's Coalition of Husky Allies for Israel (CHAI-UW), it was deliberately erected next to their own, pro-Israel display. While the CHAI-UW display remained up for a week — despite a failed campaign by anti-Zionist students to get administrators to remove it — it was ultimately vandalized by an unknown individual. “He just came behind us, said ‘F*** you guys’ and tore down our sign,” one student recalled. Shortly afterwards, another Jewish student wrote that just as Nazi recruitment posters were found on campus, “a friend of mine was told, ‘Ashkenazi Jews are not real Jews,’ the intent being that the white skin we inherited with our Eastern European descent disqualifies Ashkenazi Jews from our Judaism, history, and ‘otherness.’” (Photo credit: Wikipedia.)
