University of California Adopts Policy Linking Anti-Zionism to Anti-Semitism

Robert Mackey, The Intercept

The regents of the University of California unanimously adopted a new policy on discrimination on Wednesday that links anti-Semitism to opposition to Zionism, the ideology asserting that the Jewish people have a right to a nation-state in historic Palestine.

First Amendment doesn't apply in California?

It's becoming harder and harder to defend the Jewish people. The collective paranoia and xenophobia long aspoused by the Jewish American lobby and the state of Isreal have not only caused the Jewish community to isolate itself, but is also causing people throughout the world to rethink their stance towards the Jewish people. All of the stereotypes once used to describe the Jewish people throughout middle eastern and early European history are creeping out of people's psyches. By this move toward a new kind antisemitism has largely been solicited and orchestrated by the existing Jewish leadership.
Jews have been running to martyr playbook for too long now. While there is nothing we can do about Isreal at this point short of just cutting off their lifeblood of US economic and military aid, there is much that the Jewish community of the USA can do to disavow and repudiate the big money Wall Street backed Zionist lobby. The problem of course is that they won't, for fear of being called traitors and anti Semites in the AIPAC controlled US media.
At the end of the day nothing will change. A small group of well financed uber nationistic Jews still control the narrative.

The predictable continuation of subversion of American sovereignty by the Zionist state and their US agents! Treasonous complicity to this overt subversion infects Congress and local politicians cravenly in thrall to Israeli influence. Universities groveling to Israeli influence and political pressure repress students and intellectual honesty to support Israeli racism/ethnic cleansing and contempt for internationally law!

The BDS movement is and will prevail over Israeli subversion of nations and terrorism, racism and mass killings in Occupied Palestine. The anti-BDS pressure by extremist Israel and their foreign agents shows their increasing isolation and realization by the rest of the world how their racist, destructive, complicit, and arrogant self-proclaimed exceptionalism has intentionally created conflicts/war and threatened world peace everywhere to cloak their illegal expansion of territory.

Israeli lap-dogs - state leaders in the US, UK, France, and Canada show the level of subversion of national sovereignty by Israel. The false Israeli narrative confusing Zionism with Judaism is intentional - BDS is not "anti-Semitic" but anti-war, anti-illegal occupation/colonization and anti-racism!

Zionism is terrorism.

Perhaps the regents are being advised on constitutional issues by their eminent legal scholar, the Emanuel S. Heller Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley.

The Israeli attempt to silence the BDS movement around the world is very similar to their attempted silencing of israeli/Jewish soldiers, witness to IDF atrocities in Gaza and Lebanon committed by IDF-Zionist terrorism. Use of banned and indiscriminate weapons against civilians and civilian infrastructure in Gaza and Lebanon were Israeli war crimes!

"The regents of the University of California unanimously adopted a new policy on discrimination on Wednesday that links anti-Semitism to opposition to Zionism": Nonesense. Arabs are semitic also. Given our collective ecological crisis--our very survival-- we need to reconsider all nationalisms.

This is fascism. My father was Jewish and I love Jews, but I hate Israeli Zionism. It is a philosophy that continues to lead to the death of many Palestinians and black people in Israel. What about the rights of the Palestinians and people of color? Isn't it anti- semitic to abuse Palestinians?? There is nothing democratic about Zionism. Jewish people need to wake up to the disgusting philosophy that claims to represent them.

      noun

Comforting to know that if Hillary is crowned we will be licking Israels boots and the thought of how disgusting and vile Zionism is will be illegal. So what is it that makes everyone in Washington prostrate themselves before the great Israel? You would think they were sending us billions every year instead of the other way around.
Along with ridding this country of Citizens United we need to rid ourselves of this obsession with Israel. They are committing war crimes and occupying another country. They have no right to tell us we have to like it. Bibi is like Trump, and we definitely don't have to like him either. He's a little tyrant.

The Zionist sympathizers emboldened by their latest successful attacks on US University campuses and elsewhere are now targeting anti-Zionist posters on CD. Lately I have been receiving belittling and ridiculing responses by some pro Zionists. I am sure censorship and gagging of independent media is just around the corner. We have to finally accept our fate or face the wrath of the racist Zionist thugs? How long before our laws are changed to where we can be prosecuted for stating facts about Israeli atrocities and gruesome war crimes against the people and nation of Palestine?

SUPPORT BDS! It is our moral duty. Now is the time to fight back against the subversion of our civil rights by the Zionist state of Israel and their US agents.The racist Zionists Haim Saban and Sheldon Adelson have donated over 100 million dollars to defeat BDS. BDS is effective, Jewish hate groups have a lot of money but we are many who support universal justice and human rights for all including freedom for Palestine.

This is nothing new. In the '50s, UC fired employees for not signing an oath of loyalty to another terrorist country, namely the US. The loyalty oath is still on the books in California.

All of this seems to be connected. First Hillary makes a point of using the word "Jewish" instead of the correct "Israeli" to describe people of Israel during her shameful AIPAC speech last week. Then the UC system comes up with this phony you can't criticize Israel because you are being anti sematic crap. There seems to be a concerted effort on the part of the Democrat leadership to suck up to Israel seemingly out of the blue. Is this part of a deal Hillary made with Israel to support her candidacy?

The president of the UC system is Janet Napolitano. First appointed to a federal judgeship by Bill Clinton. Years later, after she was governor of Arizona, she was appointed head of Homeland Security by Obama.

This is just more confirmation that the Demos are for sale just like the GOP. There seems to be very little difference between the two. Hillary is a shill for anyone who can afford her.

Surprising the Regents never made criticizing Obama illegal because they categorize it as racist.


#19

We ought to give Arizona back to the Mexicans, it sure doesn't act like a US state

Well, having jumped in early with my First Amendment reference, and without withdrawing that comment - to give credit where credit is due, the last sentence in this article does read:

"Just before the regents voted on the policy on Wednesday, a member of the working group, Norman Pattiz, further amended the reference to anti-Zionism so that it now condemns 'anti-Semitic forms of anti-Zionism.'”

This still leaves plenty of room for plenty of mischief, but to Mr. Pattiz's credit, his amendment is not insignificant.

The board of reagents is more than likely very heavily influenced by the Zionist professors and wealthy ones..

This is not the far left doing this. The point made in many posts on this thread and others lately is that the Democrat Party has moved significantly to the right. Bubba and Hillary shoved it in that direction when he was president and you can be sure Hillary, if she gets elected, will do the same.

I believe Bernie is to the left but then I've been fooled before. I thought Obama was to the left too. I have to admit I believed his lies the first time he ran. The only political party that matters, that has influence and can get most of their objectives done in this country is the Capitalist-Oligarchy Party. It has two branches called the Democrats and the Republicans.

The world fears the United States and the United States fears Israel.
