In Combatting Anti-Semitism On Campus, Let's Learn More From Jewish Students’ Experiences


Reports about Sheldon Adelson’s Campus Maccabees initiative suggest new efforts will emerge to fight Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) on campus. This year, in addition to divestment resolutions, we witnessed incidents at UCLA and Stanford and growing evidence that Jewish students experience anti-Semitism on campus.

Adelson Early Winner In Israeli Elections

Casino billionaire and Bibi buddy Sheldon Adelson is an early winner in Prime Minister Netanyahu's decision to call a snap election. 

By firing Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, Netanyahu removed an outspoken opponent of some of his pet legislative goals. She blocked legislation that he supported codifying Israel's status as the Jewish nation state, and she supported a bill he wanted defeated because it would ban the free giveaway of newspapers.

Note To Adelson

An occupying regime is neither democratic, nor Jewish, a co-founder of Breaking the Silence writes.

Special To The Jewish Week

Sheldon Adelson recently implied that Israel does not need to be a democracy, pointing out that there is no mention of the term in the Bible and that “God did not talk about Israel remaining democratic.”

While democracy is not an imperative feature of Israel for Adelson, Judaism is. To understand his vision of the Jewish state’s character, there is no need to activate one’s imagination or search in far away places. It is enough to visit Hebron. The importance of the city in Jewish history is undeniable. It is where, according to belief, the patriarchs are buried; where Abraham settled when he reached the Land of Israel, and where King David was crowned.  For that reason, Hebron is the place where Israel’s character as a Jewish state should be examined, specifically where the meaning of Israel’s Jewish identity manifests daily.

It’s The Money, Stupid

Whether Republicans elect Jews is not as important as why we Jews don’t vote Republican. The GOP agenda, for the overwhelming majority, is not ours.

When it comes to the Jews, Republicans are single-issue campaigners – all Israel all the time – while Jews are multi-issue voters and Israel is not the top issue for most.

What’s more, the rest of the Republican agenda, dominated by far right social and religious conservatives and the Tea Parties, turns off the 70-80 percent of Jewish voters who consistently vote Democratic.
