Alarming Antisemitism Emerges On Many College And University Campuses

The rise of antisemitism on so many college and university campuses, as well as in American society in general, is alarming.

One can believe that the lives of Palestinians matter, as much as Israelis, but the war between Israel and Hamas is causing a tremendous overreaction by some students and faculty members, and is causing danger and questions of personal safety and security for many American Jews.

The issue of antisemitism has always been a problem with white supremacist groups, but now it is rearing its ugly head in other communities. A small educated group of intellectuals and students have no concern about the reality of Jews in world history, and seem unaware or unconcerned about the Nazi Holocaust that slaughtered six million Jews under Adolf Hitler in World War II.

To deny Israel has a right to exist is as horrible as to say that Palestinians have no similar rights to peace, tranquility, and acceptance!

The Biden Administration is working on coming up with support for the Jewish community, both on college campuses, and in society in general.

    I sent a text to a young Chemical Engineer that I mentored about three years ago. He is Jewish and living in the Boston area.

    When he was interning with me, was within the timeframe of the Neo-Nazi shot up the synagogue north of Pittsburgh. (All I could do was hug him when the news came to light. He had gone to the University of Pittsburgh.)

    A fine and smart young man, who Carol and I think a lot of. <3

    I just wanted to check in with him to make sure he was alright and not being subjected to the current ugliness.

    Of course Professor. I have the same concerns for you, and hope all is well with you and your sons.

    I don’t have to say how much you mean to us.

    Thanks, Wayne, for caring!

    It is very difficult times, and I am careful in what I say around other people, including in my class.
