Jewish Ledger

August 13, 2014

When Israel declared its statehood 65 years ago, there was little ripple effect at American universities. At the time, “campus anti-Semitism” referred to the Jewish quotas applied to student and faculty applicants to certain institutions of higher learning.

Another Milestone For the Mainstreaming of Anti Semitism : The New American Foundation and Max Blumenthal's Goliath
Petra Marquardt-Bigman
This paper argues that, by providing a platform to Max Blumenthal for the promotion of his book Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel, the New America Foundation (NAF) bestowed legitimacy on a book that is, in effect, antisemitic because its author intended to convince readers that Israel should be equated with Nazi Germany.

Campus Anti-Semitism
Over 40% of Jewish American college students report that they have experienced or are aware of anti-Semitism on their campuses. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has announced that campus anti-Semitism “is a serious problem which warrants further attention.” Campus anti-Semitism can include subjecting Jewish students to different treatment, harassment, violence or a hostile environment. In some cases, campus anti-Semitism is related to anti-Israel sentiment. In other cases, it is not. For most purposes, we define anti-Semitism according to the EUMC Working Definition of Anti-Semitism, as endorsed by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and U.S. Department of State.
