New Campaign Pressures Hillel into Partnerships with Anti-Israel Orgs
Free Beacon ^ | 3/10/14 | staff

Posted on 03/10/2014 8:32:03 AM PDT by Nachum

A new campaign that seeks to pressure the Jewish campus group Hillel into partnering with anti-Israel organizations is being hailed as a way to “a “liberate young Jews from the vice grip of Zionism” by anti-Zionist activist Max Blumenthal.

Blumenthal, who recently wrote a book that compared Israel with the Third Reich, praised the new campus movement “Open Hillel” during a speech at Brandeis University, according to video posted by a group called Safe Hillel.

“There is a movement afoot, an organic movement on campuses now … which I consider to be a movement to liberate young Jews, from the vice grip of Zionism, which is imposing a line of thinking upon them that shuns critical enquiry,” said Blumenthal. “It’s known as ‘Open Hillel.’”

He added that the campaign, which urges Hillel campus chapters to partner with groups that support boycotts of the Jewish state, has come under “extreme attack from the Hillel national organization.”

Hillel’s national guidelines prohibit its campus chapters from partnering with groups that boycott Israel, delegitimize Israel, disrupt campus speakers, or “deny the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish and democratic state with secure and recognized borders.”

Sounds like the priests of Baal trying to insinuate themselves into the temple in Jerusalem. Not exactly a parallel, but close to it. Baal, like Allah, demanded the sacrifice of the Canaanite children.

Scripture is clear. These types think they’re gonna fly in the face of God. Well, they’ll have their run ... for awhile.

His father Sydney Blumenthal was a Clinton adviser.

Maybe this is why BiBi didn’t get along well with Clinton,
The father helped the son with this book.

There’s already an organization for self-hating Jews — the American Nazi Party.

But, apparently, that’s not extreme enough for some of the Jewish enemies of Israel, who also need to besmirch the name of a major Jewish prophet to express their full rage against themselves.

It’s hard to think of anyone more appropriate for self-hating Jews to attack than Hillel, who asked, ‘’If I’m not for myself, who will be for me?’’

Jewish Suicide Syndrome. It will take all good Christians to defend America and Israel from these sickos. They seem compulsive about finding more and more ways to do damage.

No doubt he’s a self-hating Jew. And I wouldn’t be surprised if he was on someone’s payroll to do this.

He is.

I’ve run into these characters before. Here’s an article explaining Blumenthal’s connections and financial support: It rhyms with Hillary nd Soros:
