McGill University’s student union board rejected on Monday a motion for a Jewish student to cancel her planned trip to Israel at the end of the month or be impeached.
Jordyn Wright, a second-year science student, labeled the motion as anti-Semitic and discriminatory. It was also criticized by the McGill administration, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, the Anti-Defamation League and hundreds of McGill students.
The trip includes visiting Palestinian-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria, so she was even more surprised by the attempt to make her cancel it.
The incident surrounding Wright followed the McGill student newspaper earlier this month publishing an editorial falsely describing Zionism as a “colonial movement,” a “racist attitude” and “a violent practice,” and advising students who want to learn more about Zionism to refer to a leading BDS website for more information.
