Skip to comments.NYU student senate plans Israel BDS vote...in private
Posted on 10/29/2018 6:42:07 AM PDT by C19fan
NYU student Senator-at-Large Rose Asaf tweeted that student senators would propose a Boycott, Divest, and Sanction resolution (BDS) against the state of Israel at the university senate meeting on Nov. 1.
This proposal comes on the heels of a resolution, passed last semester, which urged the university to review its nondiscrimination policies for Palestinian, Middle Eastern, and other affected students traveling to the State of Israel and attending NYU Tel Aviv, according to NYU Local.
The final vote on the resolution is scheduled for Dec. 6 and votes will be cast anonymously, with only NYU students permitted to attend. During this time, those opposing the resolution will only be given two minutes to speak.

Antisemitism on the left? Who’d have thunk?
Outside of Yeshiva U. and Brandeis, NYU has one of the highest proportion of Jewish students of any university in America.
Her weekly schedule includes a full set of classes, an on-campus job and seven to nine club meetings; shes a student senator-at-large, a member of the NYU Democratic Socialists of America, the co-founder of Jewish Voice for Peace, a member of SLAM and of Students for Justice in Palestine, editorial co-director for the NYU Politics Society and an occasional reporter for WNYU not to mention an attendee of the various protests that come together sporadically during the semester.
...Although the Bronfman Center NYUs primary Jewish institution did not allow JVP a place to exist due to differing political beliefs, Asaf was not discouraged from activism in this field. She cites religion as one of the most important reasons why she does what she does, exemplified by the Star of David that she wears around her neck every day.
Judaism has such a beautiful history of being radical and justice-oriented, she said.
Asaf said its that very notion that motivates her to stand against the dominating ideology within the Jewish community of being pro-Israel...
It appears even schools with a sizeable Jewish population are trying joining the BDS movement. The student gov’t at my alma mater where there is significant Jewish enrollment pulled off this stunt. The antisemities scheduled the vote to be held during Passover when many of the Jewish students would be off campus with the families. That was too much for the administration who vetoed the students.
So ‘nyu’ is to blame for the synagogue shooting and not Trump? This is getting weird huh? Will the entire ‘bds’ movement be finally classified as anti-semitic? Will those “entertainers” that refuse to perform in Israel be classified as anti-semitic? Nah, they’re simply pro palestinian. F them.
Rose ASAF sounds like an Arab name, so no surprise. NYU is a hotbed of leftwing radicalism, so despite the high proportion of Jewish students, it’s also no surprise that the unfortunately brainwashed indoctrinated students, many of which probably went through the leftist-dominated NYC public school system, would rely on leftist media smears of Israel to vote for this. After all, how many states have a governor so slimy as to publicly aver, “America was never that great”?
Bad optics and timing. This is not the time for being anti-semantic. Im surprised the university even allowed this ..... oh wait its in New York.
The anti-Semite liberals are at it again. it’s only a short step from hate Israel to shoot up a synagogue.
Oh, how thoughtful of them. Keeping it private in light of the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh.Seriously why are the Jew hating BDS-holes and their fellow travelers in anQUEEFa and BLM such mortal enemies with the neonazis? They got more in common than they themselves realize.
Pretty sure Rose Asaf is Jewish.
That's right! They should say what they mean!
Then "Asaf" must be a Sephardic name. Certainly it's not Ashkenazi. And this girl might still not be a Jew if her mother wasn't. One thing we can all be sure of, however, is that she is very messed up.
From what I’v read, Asaf says she’s Jewish.
She’s a leftist useful idiot-with emphasis on the latter.
