SDSU students condemn anti- Semitism

SAN DIEGO (Press Release) — StandWithUs congratulates The San Diego State University Associated Students (A.S.) for passing “A Resolution to Condemn Anti-Semitism” on April 19, 2017.

A copy of the resolution may be found via this link:

This follows similar resolutions that passed at UCLA, UC Santa Barbara, Indiana University, and elsewhere. A.S.’s vote is an important step to address anti-Semitism on campus, and we urge the university leadership to follow it up with concrete action.

The resolution was spurred by specific incidents of racism, including an SDSU student group’s invitation of a speaker who referred to Jews as “sleazy thieves” on social media (his event was later cancelled). It also condemned anti-Semitism associated with the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement which occurred at Durban University of Technology in South Africa.
