Yosef Kessler: Wanted: Safe spaces for Jews at CUNY – NY Daily News

At last Thursday’s Million Student March, a nationwide student demonstration for free public college tuition, this happened:

“Zionists out of CUNY!” and “There is only one solution: Intifada Revolution!” emanated from the crowd. Protestors called us racists and white supremacists. One attacked our signs. In the background, another demonstrator yelled, “Jews are racist sons of bitches!” Another spewed lies, such as that Israel is euthanizing and sterilizing her Ethiopian citizens, and that Israel is committing genocide. In spite of this onslaught, we stood strong against the shouting, cursing, lies and anti-Semitic hatred directed against us.

As I left the rally, someone yelled, “We should drag the Zionists down the street!”

Reading this, and reading through the AMCHA website, I am compelled to wonder who is more in danger on American campuses today: an African-American man, or a Jewish man? At best it seems that the two are pulling even.
