A recent study released by the AMCHA Initiative shows college professors are promoting an academic boycott of Israel universities.
The study suggests that faculty who support academic BDS are actively promoting that political agenda directly to students in their classrooms, according to the Jewish News Syndicate.
Leila Beckwith, co-founder of AMCHA Initiative, says professors who agree with the boycott must consider Israel an “evil” nation in order to promote the boycott.
“Otherwise,” she insists, “it doesn't make sense for them to have such a position."
Beckwith tells OneNewsNow that AMCHA assumed schools do take action to correct the problem, which the group now views as a "naïve" expectation.
"We started out thinking if we exposed this to administrators,” she says, “they would not want their universities to be so tainted and that they would take action.”
Beckwith says students indoctrinated with anti-Semitic bigotry are more likely to engage in confronting and harassing pro-Israel and Jewish students.
