Students for Justice in Palestine is hosting its eight annual conference on the UCLA University campus November 16 through the 18.

Charline Delkhah of StandWithUs, a pro-Israel organization, says it's wrong to conclude that UCLA agrees with the beliefs of the anti-Israel group.

"But because we live in a country where freedom of speech is one of our basic amendments," she says, "they're given the same rights as we would be given those rights to have a conference on any campus."

Delkhah agrees, however, with several studies that show anti-Zionist activity is a contributing factor in the rise of anti-Semitism on campuses.

"And since the past eight years since this conference has been happening over and over and over again," she warns, "the anti-Semitism on college campuses has just been rising."

The Algemeiner Jewish newspaper reports the boycott, divestment and sanctions resolutions targeting Israel are a hallmark of the organization on college campuses.
