Just a few days ago a student organization Students Supporting Israel (SSI) staged a protest to bring attention to the administration's summary dismissal of their harassment complaint

Then, according to Palestine Legal, the Law School professor Katherine Franke proudly tweeted in support of the University of Michigan professor Cheney-Lippold, who withdrew his offer to write a recommendation letter for a student after learning that the student was applying for an internship in Israel. Even though Cheney-Lippold was criticized by the University of Michigan and disciplined for his actions, Franke has no fear of any repercussions at Columbia where the administration is tolerant of anti-Semites on its faculty. Franke, a knows BDS activist, who was banned from entering Israel, recently launched a deceptively named "Open University Project" whose only curricula interprets the complex Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a "Settler Colonial Analysis." It is not hard to guess which party will be blamed.

Palestinian Loss of Land: The Myth of the 4 Maps

This video debunks the frequently used anti-Israel propaganda prop known as "4 maps."
Report on Jewish Voice for Peace (November 2018)
Since 1996, the radical fringe organization Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) has attempted to drive a wedge between American Jews and Israel.

JVP’s targeting of North American university campuses and partnering with notorious anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), has led to an environment on campus where students often feel unsafe to express support for Israel. 

Despite claiming on their website to “work together for peace,” JVP fosters anti-Semitism on campus and beyond with activities and campaigns aimed at damaging the Jewish connection to their homeland. This includes aggressively campaigning for the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement and collaborating with the anti-Israel IfNotNow (INN).
