  • Elder of Ziyon
Last Friday, students at Boston University held a "Vigil for the Victims of Terrorism" on campus.

There was nothing at the event that was anti-Arab or anti-Palestinian. It was simply an event to stand in solidarity with Israel and to mourn victims of terror.

You must read the reaction from "Students for Justice in Palestine."

We, students, alumni and, community members at Boston University, condemn Boston University Students for Israel (BUSI) and Hillel’s event “Vigil for Victims of Terrorism” and call on Boston University administration to take strong measures to address the misleading and inciting rhetoric that these groups are using.

The event held on October 16th was an example of the one-sided, manipulative propaganda present on our campus. The event was co-hosted by outside organizations such as Israel Campus Roundtable, Zionists Of America, StandWithUs, The Hasbara Fellowships, The David Project, the National Hillel organization, and the Jewish Agency for Israel. The presence of these organizations is both alienating to Palestinians on campus and divisive to the greater BU community.

... While we agree all lives should be mourned, the ultra-nationalistic event rejected to mourn the Palestinian lives by urging on their Facebook event, “come and support Israel this Friday.”

The deliberate use of the word “terrorism” to refer to the Palestinians is an attempt to dehumanize them. This serves to divide our campus by triggering families and students at BU, who are deeply connected to Palestine and the experiences of living under the ongoing occupation. We are calling for a condemnation of this inexcusable political agenda that cannot coincide with the mission of inclusivity and cultural diversity at BU. We urge BU students, professors, and administration to foster an inclusive environment and prevent outside organizations from propagating toxic rhetoric that destructs the common ground this community is built on.

Statement by Boston University Students for Justice in Palestine
By condemning terror against Jews, the event organizers are guilty of hate speech!

The subtext is clear: Jews deserve to be axed and stabbed to death, and any expression of outrage is offensive to these self-appointed arbiters of political correctness.

These people who are so concerned about being "inclusive" and the feelings of all people on campus are of course the same people who sponsor the annual "Israel Apartheid Week" there. I don't think they mention Jewish victims of terror in that "inclusive" event.

If there is a silver lining in the current terror spree, it is that people who pretend to be against violence are outing themselves as supporting whatever outrage Arab terrorists decide to do. They are writing articles justifying the attacks as a reasonable response to "occupation" or "settlements."

They are revealing, quite clearly, that their support for "Palestine" is really a front for their hate for Israeli Jews and a Jewish state.
