A conference at Columbia focused on comparing Israel to apartheid is an outrage, says Jarrod Jordan, executive director of an Atlanta-based group that promotes leadership among African-American college students.

The Students for Justice in Palestine National Conference, to be held Oct. 14-16 at the Morningside Heights campus, will feature speakers, training sessions and workshops on topics including “combating the myths of Zionism,” implementing divestment campaigns against Israel on campus, and planning for an international Israeli Apartheid Week next February.
