On April 2, 2019, I had the privilege of giving a lecture at the University of Cape Town (UCT). The topic was “The Prospects for African Solidarity and Pan-Africanism,” where I discussed the unique challenges that Africans in the diaspora and Africans in the continent face in our struggle for collective progress and full self-realization.

Campus Antisemitism and Pseudo-Intellectual Complicity

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/unsafe-and-on-the-sidelines-the-alarming-rise-of-antisemitism-on-university-campuses/

In recent decades, academics promoting pseudo intellectual studies have sought to advance the notion that antisemitism in the contemporary context, and specifically on college and university campuses, is a mere illusion, created by a group of alarmists,”[1] attempting to exaggerate the severity of threats against the Jewish community. Recently, this phenomenon received attention when the […]

Antisemitism, Anti-Zionism, Jewish students and failed policies

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/antisemitism-anti-zionism-jewish-students-and-failed-policies/

A new article at The Washington Post by Molly Harris claims that liberal Jewish students are being “actively excluded” from social justice organizations.  Jewish college students will find that those active in BDS are also active in other left-wing groups and “as a Zionist this can be extremely disheartening.”  Her article goes to the heart […]

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/resentment-anxiety-and-careerism-accounting-for-antisemitism-in-the-academy-and-among-the-intelligentsia/

Recently I’ve been professionally involved in surveys of two very different Jewish populations – one of Jewish university students on 55 American campuses and the other of Jewish leaders in 28 European countries.

It’s back. Every year at this time, some extreme anti-Israel activists invoke the worst terms of abuse they can think of to try to stigmatize the Jewish state. Jewish students on college campuses around the world call it “Hate Week”—for good reason. They feel the sting of potent antisemitic imagery on public display, aggressively deployed […]

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/israeli-apartheid-week-in-britain-why-students-unions-are-acting-unlawfully/

Israeli Apartheid Week sits within a global social movement, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions or BDS movement, which aims to exclude Israel from the economic, cultural and educational life of the rest of the world.
