Hate Spaces
A new film reveals a toxic bigotry on American campuses.

Witnessing the increasing ferocity and incidence of anti-Israel, anti-Semitic radicalism on U.S. campuses, Jacobs and Goldwasser, from Americans For Peace and Tolerance, have now produced another film, “Hate Spaces: The Politics of Intolerance on Campus,” in which they reveal not only the motives and dark mission of SJP, but also provide a shocking view of the tactical assaults on pro-Israel students and faculty, and an unrelenting enmity by campus radicals against Zionism, Israel, the so-called “Israel Lobby,” Jewish control of the media, and American complicity in the occupation and oppression of the perennially-victimized Palestinians.

As “Hate Spaces” chronicles, SJP has a long history, since its founding in 1993, of bringing vitriolic anti-Israel speakers to their respective campuses (now numbering over 200 with chapters), and for sponsoring the pernicious Israeli Apartheid Weeks, building “apartheid walls,” and sending mock eviction notices to Jewish students in their dorms to help them demonize Israel and empathize with the Palestinian cause. And SJP members apparently wish to live in a world where only their predetermined virtues and worldview prevail, and feel quite strongly that, in the case of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, at least, the answers are black and white, there is a moral side and an immoral side, and that anyone who does not, or cannot, see things as clearly and unambiguously as these enlightened students do is a racist, an oppressor, or a supporter of an illegal, apartheid regime trampling the human rights of the blameless, hapless Palestinians.


As “Hate Spaces” reveals, the purported intent of SJP is to achieve social justice for the victimized Palestinians and help them achieve statehood; but a look at a strategy memo from the Muslim Brotherhood reveals a far more sinister and pernicious tactical purpose for the creation of SJP, as well as the Muslim Student Association (MSA), another campus group with similar aims and tactics. During the 2007 trial by the Justice Department against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), which was accused of being a front used to channel funds to Hamas and other terrorist organizations, an interesting 1991 document by Brotherhood tactician Mohamed Akram, for the Shura Council of the Muslim Brotherhood, was offered as evidence. In it, the true intent of the Brotherhood was exposed as being a subtle, gradual process of subversion, and members were advised of an overarching strategic objective to their movement: they “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”


Concern for the long-suffering Palestinians may be a commendable effort, but SJP’s caustic activism and demonization of pro-Israel supporters as a tool for seeking social justice for that one group “represents a profound betrayal of the cardinal principle of intellectual endeavor,” observed commentator Melanie Phillips, “which is freedom of speech and debate,” something universities should never stop diligently defending.

Hate Spaces: The Politics of Intolerance on Campus
A new film exposes academic Jew-Hatred .

“Today on American college campuses, there is only one group of students that you are allowed to attack and you can attack at will, and those are Jews,” states the narrator in the new film Hate Spaces: The Politics of Intolerance on Campus. This latest production from Americans for Peace & Tolerance, the makers of the J Street Challenge, engagingly examines how demonization of Israel’s Jewish state is reviving anti-Semitism in American academia.

Hate Spaces extensively documents what has become a nationwide campus “hostile environment” for Jews, according to Susan Tuchman from the Zionist Organization of America. Student signs at colleges like Columbia University appear in the film with statements such as “Israel is a swollen parasite…the Jews: Too fat…Too greedy…Too powerful…Fight the Jewish mafia.”

Quoted in Hate Spaces, University of California (UC)-Los Angeles Hillel President Natalie Charney notes an “anti-Israel culture” in which “singling out the only Jewish state creates an environment where it’s ok to single out Jewish students.” The film focuses on one of Israel’s main campus adversaries, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), a leading supporter of Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel with deep links to the Muslim Brotherhood. The film notes SJP members chanting “Allahu Akbar” to celebrate the nonbinding 2013 UC-San Diego student council decision for BDS and a SJP chapter president’s 2010 assault upon a Jewish UC-Berkeley student.

Former SJP member and current “pro-Israeli Muslim” Rezwan Ovo Haq notes that “SJP largely masquerades behind the human rights issue” of support Palestinians as part of a broader human rights agenda. Yet in SJP he was “slandering Israel and I had deep-seated hatred for Israel.” Corresponding to this ugly reality, a University of Tennessee SJP member once tweeted: “What is the difference between a Jew and a pizza? The pizza leaves the oven.”


Against Israel’s fanatical foes in the Ivory Tower, Glick issues a clear clarion call, stating that “you can’t cohabitate a university campus with these people because they aren’t there to coexist with you; they are there to destroy you.” Accordingly, “if you are not willing to fight fire with fire and go after them as the hate groups that they are, then you are going to lose your voice on college campuses.” Knowing the enemy is essential to victory, Chinese military theorist Sun Tzu once recognized, and a good place to start with defeating Israel’s campus enemies is watching Hate Spaces.

There has been a proliferation of safe spaces for identity politics groups, based on race or illegal alien status, that claim to be oppressed. Much of this oppression involves microaggressions. But there isn't much interest in macroaggression.


Safe spaces are spaces of privilege. They reaffirm the right to abuse the "Other" who are not illegal aliens or Muslims. Those groups are "allies" who get to set the terms of any discussion. And whose credentials are above and beyond question. Whose feelings can't even be indirectly hurt by addressing reality for fear of inflicting a dreaded microaggression.

The "Other" is the Republican and the Conservative.

First, these attacks continue to happen on a regular basis.

Second, I invited readers to engage in a thought experiment. I implored them to imagine that it wasn’t (mostly) white, Christian, conservative, Republican, and moderate students who were being assailed but, rather, students who are non-white, non-Christian (particularly Muslim), feminist and female, gay, and/or transgendered. And I asked them to imagine that their attackers belonged to that group that is currently, in reality, under siege.

Can there be any question in anyone’s mind, I continued, that this phenomenon would be national, possibly international, news? Is there any doubt that faculty and administrators would cancel classes, hold rallies, conduct marches, i.e. repeatedly shout from the rooftops that they had zero tolerance for these “hate crimes?”


They also shouted, “America was never great!”

The disruptors were not interested in dialogue, for they were either unwilling to so much as understand Mac Donald’s comments or incapable of doing so. Instead, they shouted such pearls of wisdom as: “I don’t trust your numbers!” “Bullshit!” “What about white terrorism?” “You have no right to speak!”


And my thesis, that administrators have failed to address the treatment that their conservative students have been made to endure at the hands of leftists, is proven in spades.

Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT) has released a new documentary called Hate Spaces: The Politics of Intolerance on Campus to address the worsening anti-Semitic environment on our country's college campuses.

APT is a Boston-based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting peaceful coexistence in an ethnically diverse America by educating the American public about the need for a moderate political leadership that supports tolerance and core American values in communities across the nation.

Hate Spaces goes beyond the by-now familiar accounts of a hostile school environment to document the dynamics on campus that perpetuate the problem. It illustrates how anti-Semitism is being made fashionable at many American universities through the on-going academic de-legitimization of Israel, the normalization of hatred in the name of social justice, the growth of Muslim students on campus, and massive donations of Arab oil money to universities.

College Republican Attacked by Antifa at Vigil for Woman Killed in Charlottesville
There’s never an inappropriate time for leftists to be violent.

othing is off limits when it comes to violent leftists. Not even a vigil for Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman killed on Saturday in Charlottesville, is safe from the angry mobs.

On Sunday, the president of Ithaca College’s chapter of College Republicans was attacked at the memorial event by a masked member of the fascist group Antifa. Young America’s Foundation has the story:


Slater said he was approached after the attack by the Syracuse Black Lives Matter organization which hosted the vigil and received an apology for the behavior, but not without scolding him for wearing a hat that some “interpret to be radical.” (Oh, so he asked for it? Isn't that the cardinal sin of victim blaming?)

Slater said this incident proves that, “Antifa has grown to the length where a conservative student can’t even mourn the loss of US life without the fear of being terrorized."
