President Trump has notified the University of North Carolina and Duke that he will pull federal funding over their Islamic propaganda. The two schools held a symposium that turned out to be a Jewish bash-fest. The entire event was an anti-Semitic event worthy of an Ilhan Omar celebration of 9/11 when some people did something. In class, they study Islam and learn all the good points but never talk about Sharia Law, female genital mutilation, or terrorism. They have no similar lessons covering Christianity or Judaism.
The money that paid for the Israel hate-fest came from the federal government. This crap must end.
In June, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos ordered an investigation into the Middle East program after Rep. George Holding (R-NC) noted that it hosted a tax-payer funded conference with “severe anti-Israel bias and anti-Semitic rhetoric.”
The report added that the investigation is part of a broader effort by the Trump administration to root out antisemitism on U.S. university campuses, and that investigators concluded the program had intended to use funds on offerings that are “plainly unqualified for taxpayer support,” adding that foreign language and national security “have taken a back seat to other priorities.”
Anti-Israel and antisemitic movements have, in fact, been an issue popping up on U.S. college campuses via tactics such as the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), which is designed to ultimately destroy the world’s only Jewish state.
The BDS movement — supported by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — has manifested itself on college campuses across the country, in an effort to delegitimize Israel in the minds of students, galvanizing them to march in lockstep with the anti-Semitic campaign.
Henry Reichman, the chairman of a committee on academic freedom for the American Association of University Professors, reacted to the Education Department’s letter by referring to it as, ironically, “political correctness” enacted by the “right-wing.”
