    Canadian Student Association Joins the Genocidal War Against Israel

    April 10, 2013

    The ongoing, global boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel got a boost recently when one of the largest student associations in Canada passed a resolution endorsing the delegitimization campaign against the Middle East’s only liberal democracy.

    York University is Canada’s third largest. The York Federation of Students (YFS), which represents over 52,000 undergraduates, has now joined two others in Canada – the University of Toronto and Concordia University graduate student associations – in endorsements of the BDS movement on campus, which calls for universities to divest from companies that do business with Israel and to cut ties with Israeli academics. The campaign also demands a return to Israel’s pre-1967 borders, the removal of the West Bank barrier, improved rights for Arab citizens of Israel, and the “right of return” for “Palestinian refugees.”


    On a more positive note, UC Riverside’s student government actually reversed itself and revoked a resolution approved just one month ago that urged the UC system to divest from companies that have contracts with Israel’s military. The student leaders decided to drop the controversial divestment policy because they realized it made Jewish students feel “marginalized,” and the student government wanted to remain “neutral” regarding the issue.

    If only that common-sense reversal were more common. Unfortunately that would also require reversing the groupthink mindset endemic throughout western universities, where the pursuit of “social justice” takes precedence over higher learning.

    It's only social justice to progressive's if the justice is a one way street.
