Pro-Israel Students Called ‘Kike,’ ‘Dirty Jew’ at University of Michigan
Free Beacon ^ | 3/24/14 | Adam Kredo

Posted on 03/24/2014 10:57:27 PM PDT by Nachum

The University of Michigan would not explain how it is responding to death threats and racial epithets that were reportedly issued by pro-Palestinian activists at students who oppose a resolution to divest from Israel.

University of Michigan police were first contacted last week after two pro-Palestinian activists shouted “threats of violence” at a student who refused to support their boycott initiative during a “sit-in” at the student government’s headquarters.

The Washington Free Beacon has further learned that the pro-Israel student received death threats and that others have allegedly been called “kikes” and “dirty Jews” by backers of the virulently anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which aims to delegitimize the Jewish state through economic means.

The atmosphere of intimidation and violence could leave the University of Michigan vulnerable to legal action and political retribution on a national scale, according to multiple sources in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere who are monitoring the situation.

Kenneth Marcus, a former staff director at the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, told the Free Beacon that he has contacted high-level university officials to discuss the situation but that these calls have yet to be returned.

After WW2 there were groups of Jews that went around all over Europe taking care of Nazis that had not been caught.Saw the interview with some of those still alive.They are not people you want to mess with.

From the article:

The university has been under fire from campus activists and others since at least December when it was accused of taking inadequate action after pro-Palestinian activists posted 1,500 anti-Israel “eviction” notices on the doors of pro-Israel students and Jews. The campaign appears to be coordinated by national and international groups hostile to Israel, as well as by University of Michigan groups.

Should be national news.

Good point, Nachum.

Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan are less than one hour away from the largest concentration of Palestinians outside the Middle East.

On my neighborhood the kike vs greaser “issue” was something of a class distinction deal... and very likely,,.....drawn along political lines OF YA KNOW WHAT I MEAN!!

The only people who ever called me a "dirty Jew" were Armenians in Glendale, California, after I complained about their noisy partying after church on Sunday.

Other than that, I've had a couple of men who wouldn't date me allegedly because of my Jewish background or (more likely) because of my size (I'm a 6-footer and big too); but no one else has ever called me nasty names like that.

Before that, I had had a logic professor at a community college who happened to be Armenian, but I had no reason to suspect I would dislike living in occupied territory, so to speak.

When I'd go into fast-food restaurants or grocery stores in that town, they'd take my money but were decidedly unfriendly about it; in fact, I got hostile stares from at least some of them.

When I was a child in the 1950s I lived near a gated NJ community about 25 miles from New York City. It was built on a hill called Kikeout Mt. (some pronounced it Kakout Mt. My father told me that before WWII it had been the site of a German-American Bund camp. I believe that Bund camps were Nazi meeting camps, but perhaps someone here knows more.

Not only called names but death threats! Twenty years ago a kid in my dorm was kicked out of school for writing “dyke” on a lesbians door. No threat or anything. What's up with U of Michigan? Were it Jewish students threatening Muslims, they'd be kicked out.

A great university lets in the Nazis and then let’s them act like Nazis on the university grounds. Result : disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. Good Jewish and Christian students: go elsewhere.

U-M/Ann Arbor is pro-Obama, pro-Muslim, pro-Dream Act. The Board of Regents are elected, mostly Democrats, not appointed. I spent 4.5 years working in the executive office, and the day I walked out of there was one of the happiest days of my life. A real snake pit.

It is time to start closing failed universities.

Too bad there is no Chapter 11 Bankruptcy procedures so failed schools can reorganize.

As a college freshman 40 years ago at another Big 10 University I was the only Jew (and New Yorker)on my floor of the dorm, I was subjected to some name calling from 1 student. I settled the matter with my fists. The result: great respect from the other students and the subject student avoided me.

College campuses offer a safe-haven for antisemitism these days.

The student groups are overrun with Islamist leadership partnered with the so-called anti-war (although they are all decidedly PRO-Palestinian war including support for suicide bombers).

Jews Kikes?

I haven't heard that term in over 50 years......and I think the only time I heard it was by my Irish grandmother......

But then again, she used a lot of terms that were common in the 1940's...there wasn't any nationality she didn't have a term for........LOL!

Yup, I’m from the days when racial terms weren’t always meant to be derogatory or hateful. Obviously this case is different but it sure would be nice to see the racial offense industry collapse.

I never heard this word in fifty years in NYC or anywhere else, and only know it from the classroom and in a Salinger story. I have never heard any derogatory ethnic terms in New York. We have better manners than most people realize, in that regard anyway.

Now, if you want to hear “Republican” and “extremist” uttered with blistering contempt, come on over to my neighborhood.

” it sure would be nice to see the racial offense industry collapse.”

I think that one of the side benefits of the disastrous regime headed by barack hussein obama..who as you know is our first “black” president, may be a rethinking of tha matter of race... ENTIRELY.

Two failed “programs” the overt political program and the purposefully covert RACE based program of manpulation MAY be seen as two unseemly peas in a pod.
