Anti-Israel Activism Hits Brooklyn High School

ADL has information that more than 75 universities and colleges have formal anti-Israel groups that operate under the name “Students for Justice in Palestine.” These groups invite anti-Israel speakers to campus, organize BDS campaigns and coordinate Israeli Apartheid Week events and other similar programs. High schools, however, were not considered a likely venue for student organized anti-Israel activity. Until now.

Students at Brooklyn Technical High School recently formed a Students for Justice in Palestine chapter at their school. The group meets weekly and even has a Facebook page. Are high schools going to be a new frontier for the domestic anti-Israel movement? Leave your comments and thoughts below.
