The Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) was among the 115 education, civil rights, and religious organizations to sign a letter on Wednesday calling on the University of California Board of Regents to nix a proposed ethnic studies admissions requirement that would expose high school students to materials demonizing Zionism.
The letter — organized by the AMCHA Initiative — was a follow-up to a similar demand from last month, issued again now with greater urgency following Hamas’ brutal slaughter of 1,400 Israeli men, women, and children on Oct. 7.
“UC faculty who cannot acknowledge that the Hamas massacre is terrorism and a crime against humanity, and who state that anti-Zionism and the elimination of the Jewish state is a core value of their discipline, must not be trusted to establish state-wide ethnic studies standards for California students,” the letter said. “The UC Ethnic Studies Faculty Council’s disastrous admissions requirement proposal must be immediately rejected.”
