This semester, CAMERA Fellow Jacob Kessler and CCAP Representative Rina Schiller teamed up with The Hunter Zionist Alliance to host multiple successful pro-Israel events at Hunter College. On October 20th, the student group invited Anat Berko, author of The Smarter Bomb: Women and Children as Suicide Bombers, to speak and show a thought provoking powerpoint about the motivations of suicide bombers, especially women and children, and those who recruit them.
Over 35 students attended this unique and informative event. According to CCAP representative Rina Schiller, “Anat was a fantastic speaker who successfully engaged a large group of students with her unique insights on terrorism, which provided for a great event!”
Additionally, in early November The Hunter Zionist Alliance teamed up with the Hillel on campus to host Kasim Hafeez, who told his story about how he changed from being very anti-Israel to a proud Zionist. Current CAMERA Fellow and member of Hunter Zionist Alliance, Jacob Kessler, recalled that “all the attendees thought he was a fascinating person and were really grateful that we brought him to speak!”
The Hunter Zionist Alliance is off to a great start hosting some incredible pro-Israel events this fall semester!
