Reports on the status of Israel on campus from two major Jewish Israel advocacy organizations — The David Project and the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise — have documented the relatively marginal influence of anti-Israel groups and their efforts on campuses in the United States. They note that while BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) efforts may continue on some campuses, Israel is not under siege by these efforts on campuses in the United States. Both reports were met with a measure of skepticism, in part because so much communal concern has been invested in combating these marginal groups, and in part because no amount of statistical data can outweigh the impressions made by videos of demonstrations and by singular events that mold North American Jewish public opinion.
