(Jewish Group) Alarming increase in anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism at University of Illinois

“Over the past five years, the Jewish and pro-Israel students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have been subjected to an alarming increase in anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism,” the complaint says, according to a copy obtained by the Tribune through a public records request. “The anti-Semitism comes from both ends of the political spectrum: Jews are peppered with swastikas by white supremacists on the extreme right while being labeled white supremacists by the extreme left.”

A university spokeswoman said the school has been working with the groups to address their concerns and that campus leaders “condemn acts and expressions of anti-Semitism.”

The complaint, submitted to the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, details the experiences of two U. of I. students and was filed on behalf of all Jewish and pro-Israel students on campus, the complaint says. It lists 35 examples of alleged discrimination, including multiple incidents of vandalism to religious objects on campus and graffiti depicting swastikas.

1. Christian churches should be leading the charge against hate.
