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.
