The issue of rampant antisemitism and demonization of Israel on U.S. college campuses is one we’ve covered in past editions of AntisemitismExposed.org. Most notably, we interviewed Dr. Andrew Pessin, Professor of Philosophy at Connecticut College, on the topic. (If you missed the two-part conversation with Dr. Pessin, click on the links below.) Here we focus on the problem through the eyes of two Jewish college students, both of whom have experienced Jew-hatred on campus — one at the University of Chicago, the other at The George Washington University.
Quote: “If Adolf Hitler had an Instagram account, the Holocaust would have happened a lot quicker,” he says. “Because the public would have been convinced a lot sooner, that the Jews were plotting to overthrow Germany, and weed out the Aryan race and take over Europe. I’m being glib here because it’s an imperfect comparison. But it shows just how dramatic of a situation this is when anybody can say anything they want about the Jewish people and about Israel.”
— Blake Flayton, a student at The George Washington University
