Rutgers bars Jews from anti-Zionist gathering
WorldNetDaily ^ | January 29, 2011 | Alyssa Farah

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – Rutgers University campus police tonight barred some 400 Jewish students and their supporters, including some Holocaust survivors, from attending what was billed as an anti-Zionist gathering at the state school tonight.

The student-sponsored event was announced with an open invitation campus-wide, and Rutgers policy is for all student activities to be open to the public.

However, when the sponsoring organizations of "Never Again for Anyone" saw they were outnumbered by Jewish students and their supporters by about 4-to-1, they asked campus policy to bar students wearing kippas – and eventually limited attendance to known supporters of the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, Americans for Muslims in Palestine and the Middle East Children's Alliance.

Pleas to university officials from the Jewish students and their supporters for access to the event went unheeded.

"They started charging money as soon as they saw Zionists outside," said Rabbi Akiva Weiss.

It seems that anti-Semitism is on the rise all around the world.

the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network

Well, I hope that organization doesn't have too many members, but the pandering to the intolerant and bullying antisemites on college campuses is a shameful trend (but not surprising considering the 'quality' of leadership on most campuses).

Now we will see what Governor Christie has to say about this outrage.

"Judenfrei" used to be the term, wasn't it?

Wow... banning Jews from public events? Sounds like something Hitler would have dreamed up. Maybe they will make Jews on campus wear yellow Stars of David so that they can be more easily identified. /s

Rutgers should be sued and stewed. Between sanctioning anti-Jewish activities on campus and punishing Jews who wish to engage in their God-given rights to counter-protest, this university belongs somewhere in Nazi Germany, not the USA.

Another black mark for our state university.
Any more black marks & the school might tip over from the extra weight.

Too bad for Rutgers that it is so hard to tell who is Jewish. If only there were some piece of clothing that each could wear to identify them...that would make the Rutgers policy so much easier.

Maybe the university should figure out a way to readily identify them,,, like having them always wear a star of David on their clothing./

Outrageous

I know so many Jews who think that attending meetings makes some kind of earth shattering point. Want to defeat anti-semites? Here’s how: Stop voting for and giving money to Democrats.

I had never heard of the groups involved before this article, but a quick search led to this: http://www.ijsn.net/home/ the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, one of the sponsors of the event eventually seeking to bar these particular pro-Zionist Jews. The leader of the IJSN is apparently a survivor of concentration camps in WWII and presumably as Jewish as the kippa-wearing pro-Zionist Rutgers students mentioned. Which group was more frum, and which was more frey, I don’t know. But I think it’s irresponsible, especially for non-Jews like myself and I’d guess most of the posters here, to characterize this as anti-Jewish when both groups involved were Jewish or partly Jewish.

I looked up frum and frey. I found frum — devout or observant of the 613 Jewish commandments — but all I got for frey was something out of Norse mythology. What is the Jewish/yiddish meaning of frey?

I’m no expert; I had just heard the term in reference to a girl from an Orthodox Jewish group that was called very frum, and I think it was Wikipedia that explained it to me - and in the same article there it talked about how the opposite was frey, which I’d guess was Yiddish from the German word frei, meaning free, here as in ‘laissez faire’, liberal, or libertine if taken to an extreme.

They did not just try to silence the dissent, they specifically targeted Jews. Even if the IJSN is led by a self-hating Jew, the group "asked campus police to bar students wearing kippas." Kippas are the little caps worn by Jews.

Hitler was part Jewish too, and I hope you agree that he was anti-Jewish.

Anti-Zionism = Anti-Semitism

Rutgers would make Hitler and Goebbels proud

If you’re able to know what’s in the heart of a Jewish man and rule him a ‘self-hating Jew’ you’re clearly a better man than me, and I don’t think I can even argue with someone with that ability. I thought that a Jew making the request to bar Jews might have led to an analogy to conservative meetings where disruptive liberals are banned, both groups of presumably the same ethnicity, with very different views - but what do I know? Hitler, for all the other things he was, was not Jewish, not by religion, and not by ethnicity. He was raised Catholic, as his family was. Allegations that he was illegitimately descended from the Jewish employer of one of his female relatives have been considered baseless since for the time it’s alleged, only Christians were allowed in the particular municipality. Both groups involved at Rutgers had survivors of Hitler’s anti-Jewish policies.

And our state rag, the Ledger characterized the conflict as the jewish students creating a disturbance at the event.

Even tho the event was advertised as open to the public and FREE the organizers saw that the supporters of the jewish state wanted to enter the hall and the FREE became $5.

Christie is also in favor of the Ground Zero mosque.

Not my presidential candidate...now or ever.

Pull the State and Federal funding of the school for violations to the equal opportunity and equal access laws.

Then you’ll see how quickly the change their tune.

Pardon for being blunt, but that's asinine. Opposing the continued existance of the Jewish State, is inherently anti-Israeli (with a small exception). If one said France should cease to exist, they would be deemed anti-French. If you said Vietnam should not exist, you would be anti-Vietnamese. Prior to the re-establishment of Israel, people could be anti-Zionists without being antisemitic. In so far as Israel exists one is calling for end of the Jewish nation, an act that cannot occur without mass murder.
Are there people of Jewish descent who are anti-Zionists? Yes, but that does not preclude them from being anti-Semites. Most leftist anti-Zionists are communists, apostate members of antisemitic cult dedicated to the eradication of Judaism and Jewishness. Others are delusional liberals who unconsciously wish to slowly destroy Judaism through liberalism. But these neo-Frankists, the Schutzjuden for the left deserve no more respect than the Judenrat. {Yes, I am Jewish and I'm pissed off.}
Finally, there are anti-Zionists Orthodox Jews who fall into two camps. The first see Israel as either a secular state or someone of an affront, but support its safety since because so many Jews live there. The other lacks this common sense. And then there are the swine like Neturei Karta, who not only place a Roman-imposed Rabbinic ruling above the Torah, but use it to justify whoring themselve to the PLO and Iran. They may pray 3 times a day for a Messianic return, but they do so on the bones of Jews they would see killed in their lunacy.

Would you like me to get started on gentile anti-Zionists?

It’s asinine for a non-Jew to avoid or defer making judgments about which Jews are real Jews and which Jews are only false Jews, and can be considered nazis? Right. Understood.

YOu didn’t defer anything. You wrote a moral equivalency under the pretense of deferring judgment.
