This Week From CAM’s Partners: Hatred of Israel Begets More Hatred, Not Peace

Duke University, in Durham, North Carolina.

December 23, 2021

The modus operandi of anti-Israel activists is to disguise their antisemitic hatred of the world’s only Jewish state as “civil political discourse.” Disallowing a student group its support for Israel, promoting a disproportionate number of resolutions targeting Israel at the United Nations, and banning kosher caterers from a university because they are “pro-Israel” are all manifestations of antisemitism.

Here is how CAM partners responded to such occurrences this past week:
