Jewish Harvard Students Receive Mock Eviction Notices
inn ^ | 3/7/13 | Rachel Hirshfeld

Posted on 03/07/2013 5:31:08 PM PST by Nachum

In Harvard University’s latest attempt to promote the delegitimization of the state of Israel, Jewish students in freshman and upper class dormitories received mock eviction notices in light of “Israel Apartheid Week”, which is currently being organized on college and university campuses worldwide.

The campaign, organized by the Harvard Palestine Solidarity Committee, distributed notices at the beginning of March which read, “We regret to inform you that your suite is scheduled for demolition in the next three days”, a reference to the group’s views regarding Israel’s treatment of the Arab population.

The Anti Defamation League (ADL) expressed outrage over the prestigious university’s latest attempts to daunt Jewish students and demonize the state of Israel saying, “This tactic is designed to silence and intimidate pro-Israel advocates at Harvard and campuses around the country.”

“Free expression has a place on campus; however targeting the dorms of Harvard students lends itself to creating tension, isolating students and fomenting hostility,” said Robert Trestan, ADL Acting New England Regional Director.

Jewish students at Harvard University receive mock eviction notices in light of “Israel Apartheid Week.”

Here, we will give you our own notices in return: This one is from the FBI, this one is a subpoena, and this one is a summons.

I would consider these “eviction notices” hate speech.

An actual racist action on a campus as opposed to a faked one, but I think Oberlin and the New York Times will not be outraged about this one somehow

The world will always selectively accepts reality.

The world de-selects the reality that Israel never has been the aggressor in that part of the world. All Israel wants is to be left alone, but it is surrounded by nations that hate Israel and want to see the Jews dead. This reality is so obvious in so many ways that it is insulting to have to even say it. And yet this reality is essentially ignored or denied by most of the world.

The ADL should blow up some empty Harvard busses and leave a note that says, there could have been 50 people in here.

I’ll have to ask my son whether he got a notice. We’re Catholic, but he displays two Israeli flags prominently above his desk, and is known in his own little group as “the Jew.”

Harvard is done. They have some legacy connections, but everyone I know in the business world considers a Harvard degree to mean two and only two things: certified connected to old money and certified leftidiot.

I asked a jewish person why so many vote for the left. He couldn’t explain it.

I mentioned that Soros helped the Nazi’s by turning in fellow jews during WWII. The response to that was that lots of people had to do things to survive.

Hey, just because the long-suffering Palestinian people, victims of Israeli Nazi Apartheid, object to Israeli Nazi Apartheid policies, doesn't make them Judeophobes.

Harassing fellow Obama supporters who are going to Harvard without US government assistance -- THAT makes them Judeophobes.

If I had to guess I’d say it’s a combination of 1) The Jews of European descent don’t really identify with Israel 2) Even Jews that do identify with Israel see the Democrats as being pro-Israel enough and 3) Jews tend to be more socially liberal, even though conservative economic policies favor the wealthy, and thus benefit many Jews.

And the reason Jews tend to be socially liberal is the historic emphasis social conservatives have put on Christian values, causing Jews to feel excluded or to wonder where they would fit into the conservative vision of America. I do believe conservatives are improving in this regard, with references to our country’s Judeo-Christian heritage instead of stating our heritage as exclusively Christian, and we are being rewarded with a small increase in percentage of Jewish votes won. It’s still not enough to prevent another Democratic victory. Even if all Jews voted Republican they’re too small a percentage of the population to swing the polls. The main advantage to winning the Jewish vote would be an increase in funding for our side.

Just my 0.02.

1. zero contributions or donations
2. file suit in federal court (violation of civil rights of students, there are dogood outfits with expertise in this area that could help, too)
3. petition to have the college’s accreditation revoked
4. protest any government grants or funding
5. continue to try to get mass media coverage, exposure of the anti-Semitic climate this school is promoting or condoning on its campus
6. ?
legal actions are available to put a stop to this kind of crap... any good lawyers out there who give a damn? here’s your chance to do some very useful house-cleaning...

It is also ignored by the dumb Israelis who to this day still think they can talk there way into a peaceful settlement with the Muslims. -tom

Another reason was in the early part the 20th century the elite universities, law firms, banks, brokerage houses, and social clubs were all run by the country-club Republicans (the RINOs of their time). When the Jews came knocking to join, the Republicans slammed the door in their face and they have not forgotten. The urban Democrat machines were more than willing to admit them. The Republicans have paid ever since.

In Harvard University’s latest attempt to promote the delegitimization of the state of Israel

This lede is more than a little misleading, probably intentionally.

The article later states a student group staged this stunt, not the university as implied in the lede.

I’m not certain it is mockery. I would say it is a typical 7 days notice to vacate. Someone at Harvard needs to occupy the admin building, and evict the administration.

I've always wondered why the universities that have spent a hundred years teaching that the Torah is mythology have such large and utterly quiet Jewish student bodies.

Does anyone think that the "holy qur'an" would be dissected in the same way at these universities now that Arab money is flooding them? Is there any doubt how moslem students would react to such course material?

Jews need to ditch the "ultra-modern, ultra-liberal, decadent Weimar intellectual" mystique and rediscover Yehoshu`a Bin Nun.

Had they handed that to me I would be filing a restraining order for stalking and a law suit for the university promoting it and allowing hate groups on the campus putting me in the danger of being stalked .

They're the Lost Sheep of Israel. Don't forget, they're the same ones that killed the prophets and chose the Romans who hated the Jews over their own Messiah, Jesus Christ who loved them so much He died for them.

"They cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate said to them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar." John 19:15.

The Jews don't know who their friends are and they don't know who their Friend is. But they will soon.

If they did that you can be sure they’d be charged with a hate crime as surely as the sun will rise in the east tomorrow. In the bizarro world of leftist professors law-abiding Jews are a bigger threat to American civilization than Muslims who want to kill us. A conviction or even an accusation of a hate crime can ruin a young person’s future (i.e. try finding a job if you’ve been branded a “bigot” for defending yourself). I can understand why Harvard’s Jewish students don’t want to take that risk.
