U.S. Education Dept. Begins Anti-Semitism Probe At UC Berkeley

10/07/2012

The civil rights office of the U.S. Department of Education has opened an investigation into allegations of anti-Semitism at the University of California, Berkeley.

The investigation stems from a complaint filed by two recent graduates of the university, who charge that campus officials allowed a hostile campus environment for Jewish students to continue unabated by not stopping anti-Israel protests on campus, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Last Wednesday, approximately 70 New York University students viewed “The Impact of Occupation: This Body is a Prison,” as part of Israeli Apartheid Week.
While they watched the film, which is highly critical of Israeli policies in the occupied West Bank, many in the audience noshed on popcorn from cups plastered with pro-Israel messages.

NYU students braved the cold last week to show their support for Israel during a week of Palestinian protests.
