FSU Student Senate Approves Resolution to Combat Campus Antisemitism


Algemeiner: A previously-filibustered resolution seeking to combat antisemitism and ensure the empowerment of Jewish students on campus was passed on Wednesday by the Student Senate at Florida State University (FSU).

The measure — which included an acknowledgement of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism — was approved by a 26-14 vote.

Anti-Israel groups — including the local chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) — had campaigned heavily against the resolution.

Lioz Grunberger — vice president for programming for FSU Noles for Israel and NolePAC and a StandWithUS Emerson Fellow — stated, “Although we are proud of our work to get Resolution 59 passed, we are disappointed in all of the shameful attempts to derail and distort it.  Read More …

Opinion: No riots, no burned buildings, no looting, just Lioz Grunberger lamenting a hollow victory against hatred of his people.

“Multiple amendments were put forward and even adopted without the consent of the Jewish community.

It was also telling to see that language about uniting Israeli and Palestinian students on campus was removed, at the request of SJP.”

Where is the woke crowd? Where are the politicians, college professors, and progressive elites lecturing about hate and racism? Why doesn’t George Soros, who is Jewish, fund people like Lioz Grunberger?

“You shall not abhor an Edomite, for he is your brother” Deuteronomy 23:7 commands, and yet Edom, the eternal enemy of the Jew, is in school at FSU, is winning hearts and minds.

The eternal hatred, anti-Semitism, is malignant in the world once again. It has metastasized in the college campuses and universities, in the churches and in the nations.

It has innocuous names like, occupied land, two-state solution, right of return and Boycott Divest and Sanction (BDS), and it has grown exponentially since the October 27, 2018 Pittsburgh Massacre of 11 elderly Jews praying in a synagogue.

In France where the second largest Jewish population (US is first) resides outside of Israel, thousands of Jews are packing and leaving for Israel.

This trend is what the end of the age is about. And yet the silence is deafening.
