Pro Palestinian mob

Antisemitism has sadly become an alarming presence within American universities, a trend underscored by a recent disturbing event at UC Berkeley.

During an event featuring Israeli IDF reservist Ran Bar-Yoshafat, a mob of pro-Palestinian demonstrators descended upon the campus, unleashing chaos and terror.

Their actions included forcefully disrupting the event, banging on doors, breaking windows, and hurling antisemitic slurs.

The scene was one of fear and desperation as Jewish students were forced to seek refuge from the violent mob, highlighting the very real threat faced by members of the Jewish community on college campuses.

This incident serves as a stark reminder of the urgent need for universities to prioritize the safety and security of all students, regardless of their background or beliefs.

Only through collective condemnation and decisive action can we hope to create campuses that are truly inclusive and free from hate.

UC Berkeley’s commitment to investigating the incident is a step in the right direction, but it is imperative that concrete actions are taken to address the underlying issue of antisemitism within the university community.

By emailing UC Berkeley officials, we can express our outrage and demand concrete measures to combat antisemitism on campus.

Let us stand together in solidarity against antisemitism and demand justice for the victims of this despicable act.

Make your voice heard.
