Editor’s Note on July 6th, 2023: Read Senior Research Analyst David Litman’s response to a recent faculty petition regarding the BMCC display.

Editor’s Note on March 17th, 2023: For context on this issue, please read an editorial published by CAMERA’s Senior Research Analyst, David Litman titled University Administrators Demonize Jews in the Name of Social Justice linked here.

“The ‘Visual Time of Occupied Palestinian Land’ display by the Social Justice and Equity Centers at the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) combines historical revisionism, the whitewashing of terrorism, and flagrant double standards in an attempt to deny Jewish indigeneity and Jewish self-determination under the guise of a progressive, altruistic cause.

We call upon Project Lead Tammie Velasquez and the team at the SJEC to disavow this incendiary and defamatory rhetoric against Jewish students the SJEC propagated on campus. It is imperative that they do so, if they are, in fact, genuinely committed to ‘educating and serving the entire campus community to foster a sense of belonging, advocacy, and allyship.'”

—Hali Spiegel, North American campus director for CAMERA
