Sign at Anti-Israel Protest Calls for 'Final Solution'

A protester participating in an anti-Israel demonstration at George Washington University in Washington, DC was photographed holding a sign reading “Final Solution,” the name of the Nazi’s plan to exterminate the Jews.

Anti-Israel demonstrations that have been spreading through university campuses in the US and Europe in the past month have been taking an increasingly antisemitic tone. There have been numerous instances of assaults and intimidation against Jewish students.

On Friday, April 26, the Association of University Heads in Israel published a statement expressing concern over the wave of antisemitic demonstrations on American college campuses over the last week and a half.

“We, the presidents of the research universities in Israel, express our deep concern over the recent surge of severe violence, antisemitism, and anti-Israel sentiment across numerous leading universities in the United States. These disturbing events are often organized and supported by Palestinian groups, including those recognized as terrorist organizations,” the association stated.

“This troubling development has led to a climate where Israeli and Jewish students and faculty members feel compelled to hide their identities or avoid campuses altogether for fear of physical harm.” (INN / VFI News)

“Lord, we pray for all Jews and Israelis residing in the USA. We know that You are aware of everything and we trust that You will always protect Your people from antisemitism, hate speech and hate crimes that are currently on the rise. We are grateful for the individuals and organizations that are bold enough to speak out against antisemitism and we hope that more will take a similar public stance in the future.”
