“Alarming” rise in anti-Semitic acts in US universities and colleges

Rate this post

The White House reported this Monday "an alarming increase in anti-Semitic incidents on colleges and university campuses" since the attack by the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas on Israel on October 7.

The US government will hold a meeting this Monday with representatives of Jewish organizations, which will be attended by the Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, and Doug Emhoff, husband of Vice President Kamala Harris, a senior official reported.

The Secretary of Education will go to a university this week and participate in a round table with Jewish students.

The Departments of Justice and Homeland Security are in direct contact with the universities, he added.
The White House does not give figures on the increase in anti-Semitic acts since October 7.

Cornell University (northeast), where debates over the war are very heated, said Sunday that police are investigating anti-Semitic threats posted online against a Jewish community center on campus.

The government says it has simplified procedures for filing complaints of discrimination on American campuses, for example for people subjected to anti-Semitic or Islamophobic slurs.

The war between Israel and Hamas causes strong tensions in the most prestigious American universities, such as Harvard, where around thirty student organizations published a statement shortly after October 7 that designates "the Israeli regime as completely responsible for the violence."

The text outraged some politicians and personalities.
