Alums for Campus Fairness (ACF) is disappointed in the recent inaction by the Temple University Board of Trustees regarding the hateful statements made by Professor Marc Lamont Hill at the United Nations last month. While we appreciate the university responding to calls for action by launching an investigation and ultimately unanimously condemning the professor’s call for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea”, we feel that the remarks merited further disciplinary action.
Alums for Campus Fairness is disturbed by the passage of a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement-affiliated resolution in the Student Government Assembly at New York University last night. The manipulative, biased and non-transparent nature of the vote demonstrates that anti-Israel student leaders will go to great lengths to ensure their hateful message is cemented in the SGA.
Alums for Campus Fairness is dismayed to learn that several Bucknell University academic departments are using campus funding to sponsor a February 2019 lecture by Miko Peled, a divisive and polarizing figure. Peled, an outspoken critic of the State of Israel, has a history of spreading misinformation about the Middle East conflict, partnering with anti-Semitic movements and for perpetuating calls to eliminate the state.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Alums for Campus Fairness applauds Pitzer College President Melvin Oliver for his remarks condemning a faculty vote to sever ties with the campus’ study abroad program at the University of Haifa.
