Stop Anti-Semitism at NYU

1,350 signatures

We the undersigned, call for a public apology from the New York University chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) to the NYU community for attempting to intimidate pro-Israel students by slipping one-sided mock eviction notices bearing anti-Semitic language under their doors in flagrant violation of university policy. Demonizing the Jewish people and the state of Israel through cherry-picked ‘facts’ and bold faced lies is classic anti-Semitism and must not be tolerated.

As NYU spokesman John Beckman said, “A flyer titled ‘eviction notice’ anonymously slipped under doors at night is not an invitation to thoughtful, open discussion; it is disappointingly inconsistent with standards we expect to prevail in a scholarly community.”

Additionally, we ask that the university administration take firm action against Students for Justice in Palestine for violating university policy and engaging in hate speech so that we can ensure that our campus remains safe for all students and that no minority group feels unwelcome.
