In recent weeks, our students and staff have done incredible work exposing the bigotry and discrimination of those who aim to distort the conflict and demonize Israel. From Linda Sarsour at Dartmouth, to Breaking the Silence at Princeton, to Jewish Voice for Peace at Ohio State University, to Students for Justice in Palestine at UC Irvine, our team worked hard to expose and hold these groups accountable.
Darmouth Students Take On Linda Sarsour
Click here or on the video below to watch student Zack Porter confront BDS supporter Linda Sarsour over her sexist and violent remarks against female genital mutilation (FGM) victim Ayaan Hirsi Ali. The video went viral on Twitter and Facebook, with thousands of retweets and hundreds of shares. We were happy to help Dartmouth Students for Israel prepare fliers with information exposing Linda Sarsour’s hypocrisy which were handed out at the event and used by Porter to confront her. Sarsour has since blocked CAMERA on Campus on Twitter. Prior to this event, our students asked Dartmouth’s Office of Pluralism and Leadership (OPAL) to co-sponsor a talk by Izzy Ezagui, a disabled IDF veteran. Showing how truly non-pluralistic it is, OPAL refused to co-sponsor the talk, yet went ahead with sponsoring a talk by Linda Sarsour.

On June 7, 1967 (28 Iyar) Israeli paratroopers advanced through the Old City of Jerusalem toward the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, reunifying Judaism’s capital city after 19 years of division under Jordanian occupation. This CAMERA video marks the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem and counters the media myths that continue to slander the city.
