E-mail Print PDF
In an attempt to curb criticism and to pro-actively stem the growing Boycott, Divest & Sanction movement  "BDS" formed by students who accuse Israel's government of having apartheid like policies regarding Palestinians, Pro Israel groups asked the UC president to adopt the US State Departments definition of Antisemitism:

"Anti-Semitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Semitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities."

According to its website this definition would officially declare anyone an "Anti-Semite" who performes the following actions:

  • Using the symbols and images associated with classic anti-Semitism to characterize Israel or Israelis
  • Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis
  • Blaming Israel for all inter-religious or political tensions
