I am a student in the UC system and I have to deal with anti-Israel sentiment throughout the year and sometimes even anti-Semitism. Apartheid week and divestment bills create an extremely unhealthy environment for pro-Israel and Jewish students. These events are PURELY ANTI-ISRAEL and do nothing to prevent the Palestinian cause. Furthermore, I would support events if they were actually Pro-Palestinian and not just anti-Israel. There is no apartheid in Israel and SJP even uses jihadist inspired language such as "zionist-crusaders" and "evil zionist". We the Jews of the world should not allow for them to continue to demonize Israel and zionism. Obviously Israel has its problems just like every other democracy in the world, however; she is a beacon of hope in an oppressive and volatile middle east.
