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.

    Apartheid as in South Africa before? I thought Arabs can go to Uni­ver­sty inside Israel and they have access to edu­ca­tion , health and employ­ment.
    In addi­tion if they are apartheid , why do Africans risk their lives to cross to Israel ?
    I assume they are crazy to leave the par­adise of Egypt ??

    Poorly writ­ten arti­cle, in such that you com­pletely missed the point of the group.

    They expose the crimes against human­ity that Israel’s mil­i­tary com­mits against Pales­tin­ian free­doms, and they also dis­cuss Mid­dle East­ern Affairs, as well as his­tory (1900’s).
