At the University of Wisconsin, Madison, divestment initiatives have been debated over Passover, mezuzahs have been ripped off apartment doors, and SJP has screened films implying that American Jews wield excessive influence over US foreign policy. In April 2017, BDS activists passed a “manipulative” student government resolution targeting Israel, after disguising it as a broad divestment measure targeting fossil fuel and arms companies. Swastikas and neo-Nazi propaganda have also been found on campus, with more than a dozen antisemitic incidents recorded over the last two years. "I know when I go places and I wear my Jewish star, and I wear it proudly, I do get looks," one Jewish student told a local newspaper in October. "I’ve heard a Heil Hitler a few times on this campus directed at me." (Photo credit: Wikipedia.)
