Rising Anti-Israel and Anti-Semitic Sentiment on Campus



Universities are now hostile environments for many Jewish and pro-Israel students, and if students are uninformed, they become vulnerable to the vitriolic narratives being disseminated by these anti-Israel groups.

Students on university campuses around the world are facing increasing anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activities. The Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) movement, launched in 2005, has radicalized many university students and influenced student governments, spreading propaganda through organized demonstrations, inflammatory speakers, and week-long Israel Apartheid weeks, which masquerade as educational seminars.

As a result of the increasing anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment propagated on university campuses, the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law conducted a survey of U.S. Jewish College Students’ experience with anti-Semitism on campuses. The survey revealed that more than half of Jewish students at universities suffered from or witnessed anti-Semitism during the preceding year.
