Confronting Campus Antisemites During “Israeli Apartheid Week”
Throughout March, the CAMERA on Campus team, along with our network of fellows and coalition members across the United States, United Kingdom, and Israel, executed our most significant effort to challenge the misleading narrative promoted by Students for Justice in Palestine and other antisemitic campus groups. As part of our “Apartheid Week Exposed” campaign, we published strategic and informative articles in campus and off-campus outlets. We also organized a multi-campus tour and hosted educational events that illuminated the truth. Additionally, we launched a website: This online platform equips students worldwide with the resources they need to counter the proliferation of campus antisemitism and anti-Israel propaganda.

The Problem of “As A Jew”
2023-2024 Yeshiva University CAMERA Fellow, Elishama Marmon Image Credit: Elishama Marmon

There is nothing Jewish about supporting the slaughter of innocents or glorifying and celebrating those who carry it out. There is nothing Jewish about reveling in the deaths of Jews and non-Jews at the hands of terrorists. There is nothing Jewish about going to Congress to attack Israel and the Jewish people. There is nothing Jewish about supporting terrorism.

No legitimacy should be given to those people who proclaim their Judaism when it suits their interests, wear prayer shawls performatively to emphasize their Judaism and seem incapable of having any sympathy for innocent Jewish lives that were lost to terrorism. As a Jew — one whose religion exists beyond the bounds of politics and whose opinions encompass more than just the desire to see other Jews killed — I repudiate their vile actions. You do not get to use your Judaism as cover to support the murder of Jews. No one does. Never Again.

Durham University Student Union passes anti-Israel solidarity motion
Amelie Mitchell is a 2023-2024 CAMERA Fellow at Durham University.

On the 23rd of November 2023, history repeated itself when the Durham Students Union held their termly assembly meeting and passed a motion that was riddled with misinformation and antisemitism.

Two years prior, the organisation passed a motion that supported the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement despite its history of antisemitism, entirely ignoring the concerns of Jewish student groups.

This time, the re-ratification and expansion of the motion to ‘stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine’ has been met by deafening silence; Durham’s student newspaper didn’t even feel the need to cover the event or acknowledge Jewish concerns as they did in 2021.

The motion, proposed by the president of Durham University People of Colour Association (DUPOCA) Nadia Hanter, claimed to be in ‘solidarity with Palestine’. However, rather than acknowledge the nuance of this situation or suggest constructive ways to support those suffering in Gaza and Israel, it focused on diminishing the trauma of Israeli victims and Hamas’ culpability of their people’s suffering.

Hamas: The Latest Darling of Social Justice Undergrads
Nate Miller is a 2023-2024 CAMERA Fellow at Tulane University

Since its deadly attack on October 7, Hamas and its supporters have been waging a global propaganda campaign. That campaign has found particular success on college campuses, where “progressive” students have embraced “Free Palestine” protests and even celebrated the brutal October 7 attack publicly. A Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll found that a disturbing 48 percent of 18-24-year-olds side more with Hamas than Israel. At Tulane, where I have gained some notoriety as a pro-Israel advocate, a group called “Tulane Students for a Democratic Society” organized a march with “Tulane 4 Palestine,” in which protestors called for the annihilation of the state of Israel.

Jewish Students at the University of Leeds Targeted by Vandals While Tabling
Christina Jones is UK Communications Associate for CAMERA.

(Leeds, United Kingdom) –”We are distressed to hear of a second attack within a week (Read CAMERA on Campus’ statement on the 7th March incident at University of Exeter here) towards Jewish students at Leeds University who were trying to hold a stall raising awareness about antisemitism and the plight of Israeli hostages held by Hamas in Gaza.

That those advocating for Jewish lives are persistently subject to acts of vandalism, harassment, and hatred should be of deep concern to all who value an open, democratic society. Similarly, the inaction by the authorities in response to these incidents demonstrates a continuing failure to protect the rights of all British citizens. The relevant authorities must act to ensure British Jews and their allies are able to freely participate in society, and to hold to account those who would deny them their rights.”Christina Jones, UK communications associate for CAMERA.
