Daily Illinio, Chronicle of Jewish Power in Academia, UIUC

  • Don Clasen...Zionist dogma in academia is stifling even Jewish professors and scholars who are finding their careers in a dead end and their reputations smeared if they dare cross tribal red lines.
  • David Duke ... In the first half of the 20th century in the US, progressive Jews and civil libertarians decried what they termed WASP (white Anglo-Saxon Protestant) exclusivity, privilege and discrimination, citing their domination of the Supreme Court and their ‘over-representation’ throughout the elite centers of power. Having totally displaced and replaced the dreaded WASPS, there is nary a word from the plethora of civil rights groups and Jewish organizations claiming to be concerned with issues of discrimination and exclusion.
  • GlobalResearch ... John Kaminski ... No mystery in American history is ever solved because the actual facts of each case never reach the public for adequate examination and resolution. I mean, we still haven't solved the questions of who murdered Presidents Zachary Taylor and Abraham Lincoln, never mind who killed the Kennedy brothers or Martin Luther King.... Big Oil's connection to PBS and CIA links to Northwestern University (a famous training ground for journalists), Counterpunch and the Nation magazines, as well as Project Censored. All of these operations are suspect because they receive laundered money from corporate giants under the supervision of the CIA.... :"Is it likely that the Ford Foundation would fund the kind of alternative media which would be inclined to look deeply into the long-running control over US foreign policy exerted by the private and secretive Council on Foreign Relations, given the fact that the CFR counts among its funding sources the Ford Foundation and Xerox?
  • Occidental Observer ... there are strong indications that Jews are maintaining and even increasing their overrepresentation in elite universities at a level that is far above levels warranted by their academic performance. The overrepresentation of Jews in elite academic institutions has long been apparent, even correcting for Jewish IQ: On the basis of Richard Lynn’s estimates of Ashkenazi Jewish IQ [110.7] and correcting for the greater numbers of European Whites, the ratio of non-Jewish Whites to Jews should be around 7 to 1 (IQ >130) or 4.5 to 1 (IQ > 145). Instead, the ratio of non-Jewish Whites to Jews is around 1 to 1 or less.
  • notes: NewsGazette: Twenty-one percent of those surveyed at the UI said they are frequently or occasionally blamed for the actions of the Israel government because they are Jewish. That compared with 26 percent at Michigan and 41 percent at Northwestern. Northwestern finished at the top of all three of those rankings. But Illinois scored higher than Northwestern on the question of perceived hostility toward Jews on campus, finishing No. 3 behind UCLA and CUNY-Brooklyn. Thirty-five percent of the UI Jewish students who were surveyed somewhat agreed, agreed or strongly agreed that there is a hostile campus environment. It was 43 percent at UCLA and 41 percent at CUNY-Brooklyn. "Although Illinois was perceived to have one of the most hostile environments toward Jews among the schools we studied, it was not perceived to have a particularly hostile attitude toward Israel," the report states. The study measured attitudes by asking if Jewish students were told Jews have too much power, exploit the Holocaust or are told Israelis act like Nazis. "At Illinois, where perceived hostility to Israel was much lower, only 7 percent reported hearing 'Israelis behave like Nazis,'" the study reports. The Brandeis study reported that "the most Jewishly engaged students, including those who are more closely connected to Israel, are the most likely to perceive hostility to Jews and Israel on their campus." It also said that "even at schools where hostility toward Jews and Israel are high, this does not dominate the lives of Jewish students." "Jewish respondents still tend to consider concerns over race and diversity, cost, student life, and safety and violence more 'pressing' campus issues than Israel or Jews," the report states source: NewGazette. and .By David Gehrig Only a few days after the U.S. Constitution's 226th birthday on Sept. 17, we in Urbana saw a dramatic demonstration that the First Amendment applies to all Americans, including — for better or worse — its bigoted idiots. On Sept. 22, the Urbana Free Library hosted (but did not sponsor) a 9/11 Truther talk by Jim Fetzer, a nationally known Holocaust denier. The central tenets of the Holocaust denial movement have been the same for four decades, since Nazi apologists like Ernst Zundel and Arthur Butz started printing them in the 1970s: — There's no reason to believe that Hitler wanted the Jews of Europe dead, they say. Sure, they'll admit that being a Jew under Nazi rule was a pretty bad gig, but wanting to wipe them all out? Hitler wasn't that crazy, they say. — Those gas chambers at the death camps? No proof they existed, they say. — And the number of Jews the Nazis murdered, 6 million? The deniers say that number was probably made up too, and the real figure was far, far lower. NewsGazette


Page Summary
  • Kevin MacDonald Understanding Jewish Influence
  • American academia is a cess pool of corporate and Jewish influence. Any mention of seeking an independent investigation of 9/11, JFK assassination or the supposed Holocaust by any faculty or student is immediately met with a process that leads to the inevitable demise of that persons standing at the institution and the beginning of the end of their academic career. These actions are not the result of a focus on the veracity of the claims but purely a political decision designed to protect Jewish interests.. They are protecting their complicity in these events from public view.

  • NewsGazette ... A study by the Steinhardt Social Research Institute at Brandeis University reports the UI ranks near the top in terms of a campus atmosphere of antisemitism and anti-Israel attitudes. ... It indicated antisemitism at the UI stems from "more traditional antisemitic stereotypes and tropes, rather than criticism of Israel's politics." ... Among the academic groups supporting BDS is the American Studies Association, which is headed by former UI Professor Robert Warrior. ... 47 percent of the UI Jewish students somewhat agreed, agreed or strongly agreed that there is a hostile campus environment toward Israel. That compared with 48 percent at Michigan and 70 percent at Northwestern.

  • Commentary ... Dinnerstein, anti-Semitism in America, search terms: 1930s, heyday of American anti-Semitism, poisoning wells, Jews invented AIDS, blacks in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, rioted against their Jewish neighbors... In fact, he links the two topics by arguing that anti-Jewish views learned in Southern churches continue to inform the views of African-Americans who have dispersed throughout the country. In particular, Dinnerstein unflinchingly confronts the evidence of opinion polls “from the 1960’s through the 1990’s [which have] consistently found African-Americans more anti-Semitic than American whites,” ... Christianity has a powerful anti-Semitic impulse, America is a Christian country, and America is anti-Semitic.” ... General Ulysses S. Grant’s order expelling Jews from the territory of Tennessee in 1862, or the anti-Semitic rantings of Madison Grant in The Passing of the Great Race (1916), or the 1915 lynching of Leo Frank ... anti-Semitic views by individuals seemingly far removed from Christianity—e.g., Black Muslims and Afrocentrists, leftist enemies of Israel, and even denigrators of Jewish women as JAPs.

  • GaleGroup ... American Jews have been able, to a limited extent, to exercise "ideational" or "soft" power--basically, moral suasion carried out through effective organization and public relations campaigns. Yet their soft power has succeeded only when there has been a "confluence of interests" between Jewish goals and American national priorities (36). Where such a confluence did not exist, American Jews' best efforts have failed to gain their political ends. American Jews have succeeded at times in influencing the political process, he argues, because they have mastered the skills of democratic organizing, training generations of activists coming up through the intricate system of communal affairs..

The students opposed to BDS, organized under the moniker Coalition for Peace, succeeded last Friday at blunting the anti-Semitic impact of UIC Divest, the BDS campaign of the school’s Students for Justice in Palestine chapter, which has aligned with Jewish Voices for Peace and some 20 other campus groups. Coalition for Peace unmasked the anti-Semitic aspects of the anti-Israel divestment campaign, which was cloaked under the guise of concern about human rights abuses generally.
  • Thesms . You see, for most of our history, we have been a people who have been powerless. The first Jewish kingdom started by King David lasted only seventy-five years before it was split apart by civil war. Then the two split kingdoms were conquered by the Assyrians and Babylonians. Finally, we had just one more semi-independent nation under the Maccabees before it was destroyed by the Romans. All told, then, when we look at the entirety of Jewish history, we find that we had our own kingdom for barely five hundred years. ... underscored by the War of Independence in 1948, the Six Day War in ‘67 and the Yom Kippur War in ‘73.
  • Ynet News ... Jewish Power is an Illusion ...Once again the Jews are dragging the United States into unnecessary conflicts with the Muslim world, once again they are serving the interests of a foreign state, once again their powerful capital is influencing the Senate and Congress members
  • Don Clasen...Zionist dogma in academia is stifling even Jewish professors and scholars who are finding their careers in a dead end and their reputations smeared if they dare cross tribal red lines. True to the pattern of Jewish revolutionary repression introduced by the Bolsheviks in 1918, so too now even scholarship is being politicized. One prominent case in recent years is that of Norm Finkelstein. A conscientious researcher who once described himself as a “forensic scholar,” Finkelstein’s academic career was blackballed out of top-tier universities once he began to wander into forbidden territory. In the writing of his Princeton doctoral thesis, he dismissed Joan Peter’s massively-praised book From Time Immemorial as “a monumental hoax” by a meticulous examination of every footnote she cited. Peter was making a case that there was no real Palestinian native population that Israel displaced, just a clash with immigrants from the Arab lands.
  • Israel National News Last week, posters accusing Jews of economically dominating the United States were found plastered around campus. “ENDING WHITE PRIVILEGE… STARTS WITH ENDING JEWISH PRIVILEGE” “Jewish Americans make up 2% of the population. 44% of these Jewish Americans are in the top 1%,” the posters read. Following a letter by UIC Chabad House President Eva Zeltser to school administers, UIC pledged to investigate the incident. “As we investigate this recent event, we strongly encourage all members of our university to exercise their right to free speech in a manner that recognizes these principles and avoids prejudice or stereotypes,” a statement issued by the UIC administration read in part. But on Saturday students discovered four new sets of flyers printed in a similar style and hung up around campus, including on a library message board. The new flyers make explicitly anti-Semitic references, and continue to accuse Jews of enjoying “Jewish Privilege” and controlling the US. One of the four new flyers compares Zionism to Nazism, contrasting a picture of Auschwitz where over 1.5 million innocent Jews were murdered, with a picture labelled “Gaza”. “The largest Concentration Camp [sic] in the world today is owned and operated by Zionists,” the flyer claims. The new series of flyers even appears to anticipate criticism of the anti-Semitic messages, claiming the documents are not anti-Semitic; rather they are part of the pursuit of “Social Justice”. “Standing up for Palestine is not anti-Semitic. It is not defamatory. It does not insult anyone. It is Social Justice”. A flyer appeared to question the veracity of the Holocaust and defend Holocaust denial, comparing the Holocaust to fringe conspiracy theory beliefs. “You are allowed to believe… “The Queen is a shape shifting reptilian and ‘The Globalists’ put chemicals in the water to make the frogs gay… “But when you question the 6 million they put you in jail in 17 countries. “Expressing a dissenting opinion about history is not a crime… It is a human right.” A third flyer expressed support for former University of Illinois professor Steven Salaita, who was booted from the school after a series of anti-Semitic tweets. The flyer blamed “a wealthy Jewish donor” for Salaita’s dismissal. The fourth flyer reinforced the message of last week’s posters, again calling for an end to “Jewish Privilege”. “Ending White Privilege… Intersects Ending Jewish Privilege.” “If Jewish Americans make up 2% of the population… Why do they get a special Privilege when it comes to top universities?” While last week’s posters were not credited to any group or individual author and left no evidence of whether far-left or White supremacists were responsible, the flyers found Saturday referenced the radical left-wing Black Lives Matter movement, #WeAreAllMuslims, and #StandWithPalestine. Following the second wave of anti-Semitic flyers, Arutz Sheva reached out to UIC for comment on the discovery as well as the investigation into the posters found last week. As of the writing of this report, the UIC has declined to respond.
  • Jacobin ... Who’s Afraid of BDS? MARK MONDALEK Meet the organizations and mega-donors trying to suppress pro-Palestine activism. ... “secret” anti-BDS summit was reportedly held in Las Vegas, while a Haaretz opinion column predicted that the “age of BDS” had officially begun. ... The Vegas summit’s fundraising take is a fraction of what wealthy donors give to fight pro-Palestine organizing in the US and abroad. In an attempt to catalog such fundraising efforts, the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network (IJAN) — a network of Jews “committed to struggles for human emancipation, of which the liberation of the Palestinian people and land is an indispensable part” — published a report last year entitled “The Business of Backlash: The Attack on the Palestinian Movement and Other Movements for Justice.” The secretive closed-door summit was hosted by Sheldon Adelson — a billionaire casino magnate who once referred to Palestinians as “an invented people” — at his luxury hotel and casino, the Venetian. Early reports estimated the roughly two dozen mega-donors and fifty organizations in attendance raised at least $20 million. ... IJAN undertook the project because organizations like the ones allegedly present for the Adelson summit — the Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Federations of North America, Hillel International, Christians United for Israel, the Middle East Forum, and the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America — are extremely secretive and often act as intermediaries or “anonymizers,” intentionally obscuring the destinations of the funds they receive and distribute. ... To navigate around the methodological difficulties arising from these organizations’ opacity, the report’s authors drew from over ten thousand pages of publicly available tax returns from 2009 to 2012 (and 2013 when available) and also tapped public information concerning assets, budgets, grants, and donations. The result is a convincing outline of the network that binds these organizations together.... The Backlash Network The report tracks eleven major donors and their foundations — the Newton D. and Rochelle F. Becker Foundation, the Sarah Scaife Foundation, the Koret Foundation, the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Foundation, the Klarman Family Foundation, the Russel Berrie Foundation, the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, the Sheldon Adelson Family Foundation, the Koch Brothers, the Moskowitz Foundation, and the Fairbrook Foundation — which hold a combined $10 billion in assets (not including their private wealth and individual giving) and use these funds to sponsor anti-Palestine, anti-Muslim activities in the US and abroad.
Wikipedia Daily Illini
The Daily Illini, commonly known as the DI, is a student-run newspaper that has been published for the community of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign since 1871. Weekday circulation during fall and spring semesters is 20,000; copies are distributed free at more than 250 locations throughout Champaign-Urbana. The paper is published by Illini Media Company, a not-for-profit corporation which also prints other U of I publications, and also and operates WPGU 107.1 FM, a student-run commercial radio station. While the IMC has no official ties to the university, university professors and others in the academic community serve on its board of directors. The newspaper's staff has both full-time professionals and amateur students. The paper is printed as a broadsheet, but downsizes during the summer months as a tabloid. Contents [hide] 1 Staff 2 Awards 3 Offices 4 Prominent staff emeriti 5 Controversies 5.1 Anti-semitism 5.2 Jyllands-Posten participation 5.3 Editorial accuracy 5.4 Salary Guide publication 6 2012 Financial Crisis 7 See also 8 References 9 External links Staff[edit] The editorial, business and production departments are staffed by students who are enrolled in a wide variety of degree programs, not just journalism. Several full-time professionals, including the newspaper's publisher and the advertising and circulation managers, are employees of IMC. Some students are paid for their jobs in reporting, editing, production and advertising, but some of the students work for free, as well. The Daily Illini staff completely changes once per year, known as "turnover" in the DI offices. "Turnover" means the current group of editors (editor-in-chief, news editors, sports editors, opinions editors and features editors, among others) finish their tenure at the DI in their current editing position, and a new group of editors fills these positions. The new editor-in-chief is chosen by some members of the IMC, and then the editor-in-chief chooses all of the other editors that will work under him/her. At the beginning of each fall and spring semester, the DI hires new reporters and staff members. All University of Illinois students, regardless of major, are encouraged to apply. Awards The DI regularly receives awards such as the Columbia Scholastic Press Association Gold and Silver Crowns and the Associated College Press Pacemaker Award. In February 2010, The Daily Illini was awarded the General Excellence award by the Illinois Collegiate Press Association. Their Web site, has been named the best college newspaper Web site in the state for the past four years. [1] Offices[edit] The newspaper's offices are currently located on Green Street in Champaign. In May 2006, the newspaper, along with the other IMC entities, moved east to a new building closer to campus on Green Street in Champaign. In doing so, the company consolidated the offices of WPGU, which had been in a separate location, with the offices of the rest of the IMC entities. Prominent staff emeriti[edit] Notable alumni of the newspaper include author and famed New Yorker editor William Maxwell, novelist Nelson Algren, ABC News political director Hal Bruno, Rape of Nanking author Iris Chang, Simpsons producer/writer Larry Doyle, film critic Roger Ebert, novelist Dave Eggers, folk singer Dan Fogelberg, High Times editor Steven Hager, Playboy founder/CEO Hugh Hefner, attorney Albert E. Jenner, Jr., columnist Robert Novak, Coast to Coast Live radio host Ian Punnett, advice columnist Dan Savage,[2] film critic Gene Shalit, and several Pulitzer Prize winners. Controversies[edit] Anti-semitism[edit] In January 2003, The Daily Illini printed a letter in its opinion section titled "Jews Manipulate America" A large amount of criticism followed soon after, calling into question the paper's editorial policy. The editors responded by defending their right to publish it.[citation needed] Critics noted that the publishing of this letter was not surprising to them after The Daily Illini's history of publishing other articles that appeared to be anti-Semitic.[10] Previous letters published in The Daily Illini have accused Israel of being guilty of genocide and another compared the Jews to Nazis. Moreover, while The Daily Illini apologized when it published a photo thought to be demeaning to black students, it refused to apologize for publishing a letter claiming that Jews manipulate America.[10] In December 2003, the paper published an article by Miriam Sobh called "Stop Turning a Blind Eye" that contained a quote attributed to Ariel Sharon that was fabricated. (See Alleged Ouze Merham interview of Ariel Sharon.[12]) The author later gave a full apology for using the fabricated quote. Despite the controversy that occurred from printing the falsely attributed quote the first time, The Daily Illini printed it a second time on November 19, 2004, in another article. The DI also published an anti-semitic comic strip on November 5, 2004, strip of I Hate Pam.[14] The paper acknowledged in a later editorial that the strip mocked Jews.[14] The comic was suspended for approximately four weeks. Jyllands-Posten participation[edit] The newspaper's former editor-in-chief Acton Gorton and opinions editor Chuck Prochaska made a controversial decision in February 2006 to print the cartoons from the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy that had previously been printed in Europe and had led to protests around the world and a few instances of violent rioting by offended Muslims. Gorton's column that accompanied the cartoons was cited to support the first view. Prochaska and Gorton were also criticized by fellow editors in a later editorial for not following protocol in previously discussing their printing, though it was revealed later that some of the staff did know about it in the hours prior to printing. A firestorm of letters and calls from all over the country and the world came into The Daily Illini expressing both support and outrage. Gorton and Prochaska were suspended with pay for two weeks to investigate whether proper procedures were followed. As of March 14, 2006, Gorton was terminated from The Daily Illini. Prochaska was offered the opportunity to return to his position but refused. Editorial accuracy[edit] The Daily Illini editorials were halted on September 22, 2006, after the September 20, 2006 editorial on the Midnight Madness basketball event was found to contain misinformation and misinterpretation. The paper resumed publishing editorials on October 9, 2006 with an editorial explaining the changes to the way editorials will be researched and published.[19] However, even with the new guidelines, on November 29, 2006, the newspaper printed an editorial[20] calling Representative Charles B. Rangel a Republican when describing his draft bill. Rangel is a Democrat.[21] Salary Guide publication[edit] On March 9, 2010 The Daily Illini published a guide to salaries on the Urbana-Champaign campus of the University of Illinois. The information was received through an Illinois Freedom of Information Act request. The online database [22] got the most number of hits on the site since they started tracking online traffic. 2012 Financial Crisis[edit] In February 2012, The Daily Illini enlisted the help of UIUC alumnus and film critic Roger Ebert to raise funds for the newspaper. The Daily Illini owed nearly $250,000 loan on their building. The 12 page broadsheet, which is very costly, played a part in the struggling company.[23] As the paper is funded and published by the Illini Media Company, it receives money from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign via mandatory student fees. These fees were approved by the University Board of Trustees.
Wikipedia Carey Nelson
Cary Nelson From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Nelson speaking against casualization of academic labor at Yale University Cary Nelson (1946), is an American professor of English and Jubilee Professor of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was president of the American Association of University Professors between 2006 and 2012, and has written about oil and gas industry funded research or "frackedemia". Contents [hide] 1 Education 2 Career 3 Published works 4 Bibliography 5 Notes 6 External links Education[edit] in 1967 Nelson graduated of Antioch College. In 1970, he received a Ph.D in English from the University of Rochester. His scholarship of the 1970s and 80s worked to expand the canon of modern American poetry. Career Since the 1990s he has increasingly focused on issues in higher education. In the words of Alan Wald, "With the appearance of Manifesto of a Tenured Radical in 1997. Nelson became an example of the committed scholar who conceived of the advance of his own career in the context of the amelioration of the rank-and-file of the academic community; more specifically, graduate students, part-time employees, and campus workers." From 2000-2006 Nelson was the second vice president of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). He was elected to a two-year term as president and was re-elected until 2012. In April 2006 Nelson was arrested, along with over 50 others (including Jane Buck, the outgoing president of the AAUP), as part of a unionization effort by New York University's graduate teaching assistants. In October 2015, Nelson stated regarding "frackemia" connections at the Leeds School of Business:"This is an example of complete collusion between the industry and academy that completely eliminates any sense of a university doing independent research. Unless the University of Colorado has a really lousy policy that basically says, ‘there ain’t no such thing as a conflict of interest,’ this is egregious." Published works He has published or edited twenty five books, including Manifesto of a Tenured Radical and Revolutionary Memory: Recovering the Poetry of the American Left. His academic focus is on modern American poetry. Bibliography No University Is an Island: Saving Academic Freedom. New York University Press, 2010. ISBN 978-0-8147-5859-5

Founded in 1867 as a land-grant institution in the twin cities of Champaign and Urbana (together known as Champaign-Urbana), it is the flagship campus of the University of Illinois system and a founding member of the Big Ten Conference. The University of Illinois is a member of the Association of American Universities and is classified as a R1 Doctoral Research University under the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, which denotes the highest research activity.[9] In fiscal year 2015, total research expedentures at Illinois totaled $640 million. The campus library system possesses the second-largest university library in the United States after Harvard University. The university also hosts the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and is home to the fastest supercomputer on a university campus. The university comprises 17 colleges that offer more than 150 programs of study. Additionally, the university operates an extension that offers educational programs to more than 1.5 million registrants per year around the state of Illinois and beyond. The university holds 647 buildings on 4,552 acres (1,842 ha) and its annual operating budget in 2016 was over $2 billion. Even though Illinois is a public university, only about 12% of the budget comes from the state; the balance is provided mostly by roughly equal parts student tuition and research grants. University rankings compiled by U.S. News & World Report, Times Higher Education and the Academic Ranking of World Universities rank Illinois among the top 50 universities in the world, and one of the top 5 engineering schools in the world.[16][17][18] History[edit] Main article: History of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign [19] The original University Hall, which stood until 1938, when it was replaced by Gregory hall and the Illini Union. Pieces were used in the erection of Hallene Gateway dedicated in 1998 Between several cities, Urbana was selected in 1867 as the site for the new school.[20][21] From the beginning, Gregory's desire to establish an institution firmly grounded in the liberal arts tradition was at odds with many State residents and lawmakers who wanted the university to offer classes based solely around "industrial education".[22] The University opened for classes on March 2, 1868, and had two faculty members and 77 students.[23] " Gregory is largely credited with establishing the University as it is today. Gregory's grave is on the Urbana campus, between Altgeld Hall and the Henry Administration Building. His headstone (mimicking the epitaph of British architect Christopher Wren) reads, "If you seek his monument, look about you." John Milton Gregory, the university's first president The Library, which opened with the school in 1868, started with 1,039 volumes. Subsequently, President Edmund J. James, in a speech to the Board of Trustees in 1912, proposed to create a research library. It is now one of the world's largest public academic collections.[21][24][25] In 1870, the Mumford House was constructed as a model farmhouse for the school's experimental farm. The Mumford House remains the oldest structure on campus.[26] The original University Hall (1871) was the fourth building built; it stood where the Illini Union stands today.[27] During the Presidency of Edmund J. James (1904–1920), James is credited for building the foundation of the large Chinese international student population on campus.[28] [29][30][31] James established ties with China through the Chinese Minister to the United States Wu Ting-Fang[31] In addition, during James's presidency, class rivalries and Bob Zuppke's winning football teams contributed to campus morale.[21] On June 11, 1929, the Alma Mater statue was unveiled. The Alma Mater was established by donations by the Alumni Fund and the classes of 1923-1929. The statue stood behind the Auditorium until it was moved to its current location on August 22, 1962[32] Like many Universities, the economic depression slowed construction and expansion on the campus, but the old University Hall began to collapse in 1938. The University replaced the original university hall with Gregory Hall and the Illini Union. After World War II, the university experienced rapid growth. The enrollment doubled and the academic standing improved.[33] This period was also marked by large growth in the Graduate College and increased federal support of scientific and technological research. During the 1950s and 1960s the university experienced the turmoil common on many American campuses. Among these were the water fights of the fifties and sixties.[34] In 1998, the Hallene Gateway Plaza was dedicated. The Plaza features the original sandstone portal of the New Main University Hall.[27] The state of Illinois supplied roughly two-thirds of the university's budget while the federal government funded 90% of research.[35] In recent years, state support has declined from 4.5% of the state's tax appropriations in 1980 to 2.28% in 2011, a nearly 50% decline.[36] As a result, the university's budget has shifted away from relying on state support with nearly 84% of the budget now coming from other sources.[37] On March 12, 2015, the Board of Trustees approved the creation of a medical school, being the first college created at Urbana-Champaign in over 60 years.[38][39][40] Statue on campus titled "Alma Mater" by Lorado Taft Evolution of name[edit] The original name in 1867 was Illinois Industrial University.[41] In 1885, the Illinois Industrial University officially changed its name to the University of Illinois, reflecting its agricultural, mechanical, and liberal arts curriculum.[22] This remained the official name for nearly 100 years, until it was changed to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1982 (using the reverse of the commonly used designation for the local area, "Champaign-Urbana"), ostensibly to establish a separate identity for the campus within the University of Illinois system. However, the institution continues to be known as "the University of Illinois", or just "Illinois" in both the media[42][43] and on many of UIUC's web pages.[44][45][46] Starting in 2008, the university began rebranding itself as "Illinois" rather than UIUC, changing the website and email addresses from to Campus[edit] Green Street in Campustown Main article: Campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign See also: Campustown (Champaign, Illinois) The main research and academic facilities are divided almost evenly between the twin cities of Urbana and Champaign. The College of Agriculture, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences' research fields stretch south from Urbana and Champaign into Savoy and Champaign County. The university maintains formal gardens and a conference center in nearby Monticello at Allerton Park. Four main quads compose the center of the university and are arranged from north to south. The Beckman Quadrangle and the John Bardeen Quadrangle occupy the center of the Engineering Campus. Boneyard Creek flows through the John Bardeen Quadrangle, paralleling Green Street. The Beckman Quadrangle is primarily composed of research units and laboratories, and features a large solar calendar consisting of an obelisk and several copper fountains. The Main Quadrangle and South Quadrangle follow immediately after the John Bardeen Quad. The former makes up a large part of the Liberal Arts and Sciences portion of the campus, while the latter comprises many of the buildings of the College of ACES spread across the campus map.[47] The campus is known for its landscape and architecture, as well as distinctive landmarks.[48] It was identified as one of 50 college or university "works of art" by T.A. Gaines in his book The Campus as a Work of Art.[49] The campus also has a number of buildings and sites on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places including Harker Hall, Astronomical Observatory, Louise Freer Hall, The Main Library, The Experimental Dairy Farm Historic District, and Morrow Plots. U of I's Willard Airport is one of the few airports owned by an educational institution.[50] Panorama facing north on UIUC's Main Quad Sustainability[edit] In October 2011, the Sustainable Endowments Institute gave the campus a grade of B for sustainability in its 2011 College Sustainability Report Card. Strengths noted in the report included the campus's adoption of LEED gold standards for all new construction and major renovations and its public accessibility to endowment investment information. The university makes a list of endowment holdings and its shareholder voting record available to the public. The weaknesses are areas such as student involvement and investment priorities. The Student Sustainability Committee is empowered to allocate funding from a clean energy technology fee and a sustainable campus environment fee,[51] while the university aims to optimize investment return but has not made any public statements about investigating or investing in renewable energy funds or community development loan funds. However, the biggest weakness of the university's sustainability is its shareholder engagement, as the university has not made any public statements about active ownership or a proxy voting policy.[52] Currently, the University of Illinois has 11 LEED certified buildings. Three of these are platinum certified (Business Instructional Facility, Lincoln Hall, and Bousfield Hall). Three are gold (National Petascale Computing Facility, Nugent Hall, Wassaja Hall). The rest are silver (Ikenberry Dining Hall, Evers Laboratory, Newmark Civil Engineering Laboratory, Illinois Fire Service Institute, and Huff Hall).[53] In his remarks on the creation of the Office of Sustainability in September 2008, Chancellor Richard Herman stated, "I want this institution to be the leader in sustainability."[54] In February 2008, he signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, committing the University of Illinois to take steps "in pursuit of climate neutrality."[55] Academics[edit] University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign College/School Year Founded Agriculture, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences 1867 Fine and Applied Arts 1867 Engineering 1868 Medicine 1882 Library and Information Science 1893 Applied Health Sciences 1895 Law 1897 Education 1905 Liberal Arts and Sciences 1913 Business 1915 Media 1927 Social Work 1931 Aviation 1946 Labor and Employment Relations 1946 Veterinary Medicine 1948 Carle-Illinois College of Medicine 2015 The University offers more than 150 undergraduate and 100 graduate and professional programs in over 15 academic units, among several online specializations such as Digital Marketing. In 2015, the University announced its expansion to include an engineering-based medical program, which would be the first new college created in Urbana-Champaign in over 60 years.[39][40] The university also offers Undergraduate students the opportunity for graduation honors. University Honors is an academic distinction awarded to the highest achieving students. To earn the distinction, students must have a cumulative grade point average of a 3.5/4.0 within the academic year of their graduation and rank within the top 3% of their graduating class. Their names are inscribed on a Bronze Tablet that hangs in the Main Library.[56] Several scholar opportunities include "James Scholars" where undergraduate students invited to pursue a specialized course of study for no less than two years of their undergraduate course work, "Chancellor's Scholars" where undergraduate students are invited to participate in the Campus Honors Program (only 125 members admitted per year), and "Senior 100 Honorary", which recognizes graduates for achievements in leadership, academics and campus involvement throughout their undergraduate education.[citation needed] The Leadership Certificate is a multi-semester structured program which aims to develop students' leadership skills through different kinds of curricula and programs.[57] Admissions[edit] Admission to UIUC is rated as "more selective" by U.S. News & World Report.[58] For fall 2014, UIUC received 35,822 freshmen applications; 21,150 were admitted (59.0%) and 6,937 enrolled.[59] For enrolled freshmen, the middle 50% range of SAT scores were 590-690 for critical reading, 700-790 for math, and 600-690 for writing.[59] The middle 50% range of the ACT scores were 26-32 for composite, 26-33 for math, and 26-33 for English.[59] Of the 43% of incoming freshmen who submitted high school class rank, 59% were in the top tenth of their graduating class and 90% were in the top quarter.[59] For the freshmen who were admitted for the 2016 school year by November 2015, the middle 50% range of the ACT composite was 27-32.[60] The middle 50% range for the SAT was 1320-1470. The middle 50% means that 25% of students are below the range and 25 students are above the range.[60] Admissions differ between the different colleges/schools in UIUC. The School of Social Work has the lowest ranges with the middle 50% range of the ACT at 24-27, and the middle 50% range of the SAT is 1150-1350 (out of 1600; for critical reading and math only). The middle 50% high school class rank is 74-90%.[60] The College of Education has the middle 50% range for the ACT and SAT (no writing) at 25-29 and 1200-1350 respectively. The high school class rank is 77-93%.[60] For the College of Agricultural, Consumer & Environmental Sciences (ACES), the middle 50% range of the ACT is 25-30 and the middle 50% range of the SAT is 1230-1390. The middle 50% high school class rank is 79-95%.[60] The College of Applied Health Sciences is similar with the middle 50% range of the ACT 25-30 and the middle 50% range of the SAT 1200-1350. The middle 50% high school class rank is 80-95%.[60] The College of Media has the middle 50% range for the ACT at 26-30, SAT (no writing) at 1230-1400 and the high school rank at 80-92%.[60] The Division of General Studies is also in that range with a middle 50% range for the ACT at 25-30, middle 50% range for the SAT (no writing) at 1300-1420, and a high school class rank of 79-94%.[60] The College of Fine and Applied Arts has the middle 50% range for the ACT at 25-30, the SAT score (no writing) middle 50% range is 1200-1390, and a high school class rank of 72-94%.[60] The schools start to make a more significant increase with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The middle 50% range for the ACT is 27-32, the SAT (no writing) is 1320-1450, and the high school class rank is 85-97%.[60] The middle 50% range for the ACT and SAT (no writing) for the College of Business are 28-32, 1320-1440 and the high school class rank is 88-97%.[60] The most selective college is the College of Engineering. The middle 50% range for the ACT is 31-34, the SAT (no writing) is 1400-1520, and the high school class rank is 92-99%.[60] Rankings[edit] University rankings National ARWU[61] 23 Forbes[62] 72 U.S. News & World Report[63] 44 Washington Monthly[64] 33 Global ARWU[65] 30 QS[66] 66 Times[67] 36 U.S. News & World Report[68] 47 In the 2016 U.S. News & World Report (USNWR) "America's Best Colleges" report, UIUC's undergraduate program was ranked tied for 41st among national universities and tied for 11th among public universities.[69] The graduate program had over 40 disciplines ranked by within the top 25 nationwide by USNWR, including 15 within the top five.[69] U.S. News & World Report ranked the undergraduate and graduate Accounting programs 2nd and 3rd respectively in the United States in their 2016 rankings.[69] The College of Business was ranked 47th nationally; the College of Engineering was ranked tied for 6th at the graduate level, with 9 disciplines ranked within the top ten.[69] Computer Science was ranked 5th in the country; Chemistry and Physics were also ranked within the top ten at the graduate level.[69] The College of Education was ranked by USNWR at 24th overall, with 3 programs ranked within the top ten.[69] The Graduate School of Library and Information Science was ranked 1st in the nation, with six programs ranked within the top ten.[69] The university was also listed as a "Public Ivy" in The Public Ivies: America's Flagship Public Universities (2001) by Howard and Matthew Greene.[70] "Although there is no formal ranking process for HR/IR programs, employers and students acknowledge that the University of Illinois is one of the top three programs" according to the School of Labor and Employment Relations website.[71] Kiplinger's Personal Finance rated Illinois 36th in its list of 100 Best Values in Public Colleges,[72] which "measures academic quality, cost and financial aid." The Princeton Review ranked Illinois 1st in its 2016 list of top party schools.[73] Internationally, the university was ranked 29th in the world by the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), with UIUC engineering ranked 4th;[74] it was also ranked 36th by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, and 66th in the world by the QS World University Rankings. The University of Illinois’ online bachelor's degree in Earth, Society, & Environmental Sustainability was ranked 6th best by "Non Profit Colleges Online."[75] Round Barns found on the University of Illinois Experimental Dairy Farm Historic District part of ACES Research[edit] The Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology is the largest interdisciplinary facility on campus with 313,000 square feet (29,100 m2) The University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign is often regarded as a world-leading magnet for engineering and sciences (both applied and basic).[76] Having been classified into the category comprehensive doctoral with medical/veterinary and very high research activity,[77] by The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, Illinois offers a wide range of disciplines in undergraduate and postgraduate programs. It is also listed as one of the Top 25 American Research Universities by The Center for Measuring University Performance.[78] Beside annual influx of grants and sponsored projects, the university manages an extensive modern research infrastructure.[79] The university has been a leader in computer based education and hosted the PLATO project, which was a precursor to the internet and resulted in the development of the plasma display. Illinois was a 2nd-generation ARPAnet site in 1971 and was the first institution to license the UNIX operating system from Bell Labs. Research Park[edit] Main article: Research Park, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Located in the southwest part of campus, Research Park opened its first building in 2001 and has grown to encompass 13 buildings. Ninety companies have established roots in research park, employing over 1,400 people. Tenants of the Research Park facilities include prominent Fortune 500 companies Capital One, John Deere, State Farm, Caterpillar, and Yahoo, Inc. Companies also employ about 400 total student interns at any given time throughout the year. The complex is also a center for entrepreneurs, and has over 50 startup companies stationed at its EnterpriseWorks Incubator facility.[80] This facility offers a bridge between the research of the university and the commercialization of technology. It provides services such as counseling, training, and networking events to startups. In 2011, Urbana, Illinois was named number 11 on Popular Mechanics' "14 Best Startup Cities in America" list, in a large part due to the contributions of Research Park's programs.[81] The park has gained recognition from other notable publications, such as and Forbes magazine. For the 2011 fiscal year, Research Park produced an economic output of $169.5M for the state of Illinois.[82] National Center for Supercomputing Applications[edit] Main article: National Center for Supercomputing Applications The university hosts the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), which created Mosaic, the first graphical Web browser, the foundation upon which Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer are based, the Apache HTTP server, and NCSA Telnet. The Parallel@Illinois program hosts several programs in parallel computing, including the Universal Parallel Computing Research Center. The university contracted with Cray to build the National Science Foundation-funded supercomputer Blue Waters[83][84][85] The system also boasts the largest public online storage system in the world with more than 25 petabytes of usable space.[86] The university celebrated January 12, 1997 as the "birthday" of HAL 9000, the fictional supercomputer from the novel and film 2001: A Space Odyssey; in both works, HAL credits "Urbana, Illinois" as his place of operational origin. Prairie Research Institute[edit] Main article: Prairie Research Institute One of the research fields located on campus. Located off Florida Ave. The Prairie Research Institute is located on campus and is the home of the Illinois Natural History Survey, Illinois State Geological Survey, Illinois State Water Survey, Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, and the Illinois State Archeological Survey. Researchers at the Prairie Research Institute are engaged in research in agriculture and forestry, biodiversity and ecosystem health, atmospheric resources, climate and associated natural hazards, cultural resources and history of human settlements, disease and public health, emerging pests, fisheries and wildlife, energy and industrial technology, mineral resources, pollution prevention and mitigation, and water resources. The Illinois Natural History Survey collections include crustaceans, reptiles and amphibians, birds, mammals, algae, fungi, and vascular plants, with the insect collection is among the largest in North America. The Illinois State Geological Survey houses the legislatively mandated Illinois Geological Samples Library, a repository for drill-hole samples in Illinois, as well as paleontological collections. ISAS serves as a repository for a large collection of Illinois archaeological artifacts. One of the major collections is from the Cahokia Mounds.[87] Big Ten Academic Alliance[edit] University of Illinois is a participant in the Big Ten Academic Alliance. The Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA) is the academic consortium of the universities in the Big Ten Conference. Engaging in $10 billion in research in 2014-2015, BTAA universities provide powerful insight into important issues in medicine, technology, agriculture, and communities. Students at participating schools are also allowed "in-house" borrowing privileges at other schools' libraries.[88] The BTAA uses collective purchasing and licensing, and has saved member institutions $19 million to date.[89] Course sharing,[90] professional development programs,[91] study abroad and international collaborations,[92] and other initiatives are also part of the BTAA. Accolades[edit] In Bill Gates' February 24, 2004 talk as part of his Five Campus Tour (Harvard, MIT, Cornell, Carnegie-Mellon and Illinois)[93] titled "Software Breakthroughs: Solving the Toughest Problems in Computer Science," he mentioned that Microsoft hires more graduates from the University of Illinois than from any other university in the world.[94] Alumnus William M. Holt, a Senior Vice-President of Intel, also mentioned in a campus talk on September 27, 2007 entitled "R&D to Deliver Practical Results: Extending Moore's Law"[95] that Intel hires more PhD graduates from the University of Illinois than from any other university in the country. In 2007, the university-hosted research Institute for Condensed Matter Theory (ICMT) was launched, with the director Paul Goldbart and the chief scientist Anthony Leggett. ICMT is currently located at the Engineering Science Building on campus. The University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA), which recognizes excellence in both individual and institutional achievements, has awarded two awards to U of I.[96] Discoveries and innovation[edit] See also: Stanford discoveries and innovation, Carnegie Mellon discoveries and innovation, MIT discoveries and innovation, and Cal Berkeley discoveries and innovation As of fall 2015 the university had 44,087 students.[4] Over 10,000 of them were international students, and of them 5,295 were Mainland Chinese.[110] The university also recruits students from over 100 countries[111][112] among its 32,878[4] undergraduate students and 10,245[4] graduate and professional students.[112] The gender breakdown is 55% men, 45% women.[112] UIUC in 2014 enrolled 4,898 students from China, more than any other American university. They comprise the largest group of international students on the campus, followed by South Korea (1,268 in fall 2014) and India (1,167). Graduate enrollment of Chinese students at UIUC has grown from 649 in 2000 to 1,973 in 2014.[113] Student organizations[edit] The Student Union Building called Illini Union The University boasts over 1,000 active Registered Student Organizations (RSOs),[114] showcased at the start of each academic year during Illinois's "Quad Day." Registration and support is provided by the Student Programs & Activities Office, an administrative arm established in pursuit of the larger social, intellectual, and educative goals of the Illini Student Union. The Office's mission is to "enhance ... classroom education," "meet the needs and desires of the campus community," and "prepare students to be contributing and humane citizens."[115] Beyond student organizations, the The Daily Illini is a student-run newspaper that has been published for the community of since 1871. The paper is published by Illini Media Company, a not-for-profit which also prints other publications, and operates WPGU 107.1 FM, a student-run commercial radio station. The Varsity Men's Glee Club is an all-male choir at the University of Illinois that was founded in 1886.[116] The Varsity Men's Glee Club[117] is one of the oldest glee clubs in the United States as well as the oldest registered student organisation at the University of Illinois. Fraternity & Sorority Life[edit] Main article: List of Fraternities and Sororities at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign There are 59 fraternities and 38 sororities on campus.[118] Of the approximately 30,366 undergraduates, 3,463 are members of sororities and 3,674 are members of fraternities.[119] The Greek system at the University of Illinois has a system of self-government. While staff advisors and directors manage certain aspects of the Greek community, most of the day-to-day operations of the Greek community are governed by the Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council.[120] A smaller minority of fraternities and sororities fall under the jurisdiction of the Black Greek Council and United Greek Council; the Black Greek Council serves "historically black" Greek organizations while the United Greek council comprises other multicultural organizations.[121][122] Many of the fraternity and sorority houses on campus are on the National Register of Historic Places. Student government[edit] Foellinger Auditorium U of I has an extensive history of past student governments. Two years after the university opened in 1868, John Milton Gregory and a group of students created a constitution for a student government. Their governance expanded to the entire university in 1873, having a legislative, executive, and judicial branch. For a period of time, this government had the ability to discipline students. In 1883, however, due to a combination of events from Gregory's resignation to student-faculty infighting, the government formally dissolved itself via plebiscite.[123] It wasn't until 1934, when the Student Senate, the next university-wide student government, was created. A year before, future U of I Dean of Students, Fred H. Turner and the university's Senate Committee on Student Affairs gave increased power to the Student Council, an organization primarily known for organizing dances. A year after, the Student Council created a constitution and became the Student Senate, under the oversight of the Committee on Student Affairs. This Student Senate would last for 35 years.[124] The Student Senate changed its purpose and name in 1969, when it became the Undergraduate Student Association (UGSA). It no longer was a representational government, instead becoming a collective bargaining agency. It often worked with the Graduate Student Association to work on various projects[125] In 1967, Bruce A. Morrison and other U of I graduates founded the Graduate Student Association (GSA). GSA would last until 1978, when it merged with the UGSA to form the Champaign-Urbana Student Association (CUSA).[126][127] CUSA lasted for only 2 years when it was replaced by the Student Government Association (SGA) in 1980. SGA lasted for 15 years until it became the Illinois Student Government (ISG) in 1995. ISG lasted until 2004.[127] The current university student government, created in 2004, is the Illinois Student Senate, a combined undergraduate and graduate student senate with 54 voting members. The student senators are elected by college and represent the students in the Urbana-Champaign Senate (which comprises both faculty and students), as well as on a variety of faculty and administrative committees, and are led by an internally elected executive board of a President, External Vice President, Internal Vice President, and Treasurer. As of 2012, the executive board is supported by an executive staff consisting of a Chief of Staff, Clerk of the Senate, Parliamentarian, Director of Communications, Intern Coordinator, and the Historian of the Senate.[128] Residence halls[edit] Main article: UIUC Residence Halls Busey-Evans Residence Halls is one of many buildings on the NRHP Libraries and museums[edit] See also: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign University Library, Main Library (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Spurlock Museum, Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, Grainger Engineering Library, and Krannert Art Museum Krannert Museum of Art The campus library system is one of the largest public academic collections in the world.[24] Among universities in North America, only the collections of Harvard are larger.[133] Currently, the University of Illinois' 20+ departmental libraries and divisions hold more than 24 million items, including more than 12 million print volumes.[24] As of 2012, it had also the largest "browsable" university library in the United States, with 5 million volumes directly accessible in stacks in a single location.[134] University of Illinois also has the largest public engineering library (Grainger Engineering Library) in the country.[135][24][136] In addition to the main library building, which houses nearly 10 subject-oriented libraries, the Isaac Funk Family Library on the South Quad serves the College of Agriculture, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences and the Grainger Engineering Library Information Center serves the College of Engineering on the John Bardeen Quad. Main Library and home to Rare Book & Manuscript Library Residence Hall Library System is one of three in the nation.[137][138] The Residence Hall Libraries were created in 1948 to serve the educational, recreational, and cultural information needs of first and second year undergraduate students residing in the residence halls, and the living-learning communities within the residence halls. The collection also serves University Housing staff as well as the larger campus community, including undergraduate and graduate students, and university faculty and staff.[139] The Rare Book & Manuscript Library (RBML) is one of the Special collections units within the University Library.[140] The RBML is one of the largest special collections repositories in the United States.[141][142][143][144] The University has several museums, galleries, and archives which include Krannert Art Museum, Sousa Archives and Center for American Music and Spurlock Museum. Gallery and exhibit locations include Krannert Center for the Performing Arts and at the School of Art and Design. Hallene Gateway dedicated in 1998 by donations from the Alumni Alan M. and Phyllis Welsh Hallene[27] As of 2007, 21 alumni and faculty members are Nobel laureates and 20 have won a Pulitzer Prize.[150] In particular, John Bardeen is the only person to have won two Nobel prizes in physics, having done so in 1956 and 1972 while on faculty at the University of Illinois. In 2003, two faculty members won Nobel prizes in different disciplines: Paul C. Lauterbur for physiology or medicine, and Anthony Leggett for physics. Two alumni have been named IEEE Fellows in recognition of their contributions to computer technology. Fazlur Rahman Khan, considered to be the "Einstein of structural engineering" and the "Greatest Structural Engineer of the 20th century"[151] is an alumnus. Khan had been responsible for the engineering design of many major architectural projects, such as the 100-story John Hancock Center, and the 110-story Willis Tower (formerly known as Sears Tower).[152] Richard Hamming, known for the Hamming code and Hamming distance, is also an alumnus. Alumni have created companies and products such as Netscape Communications (formerly Mosaic) (Marc Andreessen), AMD (Jerry Sanders), PayPal (Max Levchin), Playboy (Hugh Hefner), National Football League (George Halas), Siebel Systems (Thomas Siebel), Mortal Kombat (Ed Boon), CDW (Michael Krasny), YouTube (Steve Chen and Jawed Karim), THX (Tomlinson Holman), Andreessen Horowitz (Marc Andreessen), Oracle (Larry Ellison and Bob Miner), Lotus (Ray Ozzie), Yelp! (Jeremy Stoppelman and Russel Simmons), Safari (Dave Hyatt), Firefox (Joe Hewitt), W. W. Grainger (William Wallace Grainger), Delta Air Lines (C. E. Woolman), Beckman Instruments (Arnold Beckman), BET (Robert L. Johnson), and Tesla Motors (Martin Eberhard). Alumni and faculty have invented the LED and the quantum well laser (Nick Holonyak, B.S. 1950, M.S. 1951, Ph.D. 1954), DSL (John Cioffi, B.S. 1978), JavaScript (Brendan Eich, M.S. 1986), the integrated circuit (Jack Kilby, B.S. 1947), the transistor (John Bardeen, faculty, 1951 - 1991), the pH meter (Arnold Beckman, B.S. 1922, M.S. 1923), MRI (Paul C. Lauterbur), the plasma screen (Donald Bitzer, B.S. 1955, M.S. 1956, Ph.D. 1960), color plasma display (Larry F. Weber B.S. 1968 M.S. 1971 Ph.D. 1975), and are responsible for the structural design of such buildings as the Willis Tower, the John Hancock Center, and the Burj Khalifa.[153] UIUC alumni have also led several companies, including BitTorrent (Eric Klinker), Renaissance Technologies (Robert Mercer), Ticketmaster, McDonald's, Goldman Sachs, BP, Kodak, Shell, General Motors, Playboy and AT&T. Alumni have founded many organizations, including the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Project Gutenberg, and have served in a wide variety of government and public interest roles. Rafael Correa, President of The Republic of Ecuador since January 2006 secured his M.S. and PhD degrees from the University's Economics Department in 1999 and 2001 respectively.[154] Nathan C. Ricker attended U of I and in 1873 was the first person to graduate in the United States with a degree in Architecture. Mary L. Page, the first woman to obtain a degree in architecture, also graduated from U of I.[155] Philanthropy[edit] Over the last twenty years state funding for the university has fallen from 44.5% to 16.4%. Private philanthropy increasingly supplements revenue from tuition and state funding, currently providing about 19% of the annual budget.[37] Notable among significant donors, alumnus entrepreneur Thomas M. Siebel has committed nearly $150 million to the university including $36 million to build the Thomas M. Siebel Center for Computer Science and the Grainger Foundation founded by alumnus W. W. Grainger has contributed nearly $200 million to the university over the last half-century. Controversies[edit] Chief Illiniwek[edit] Main article: Chief Illiniwek Chief Illiniwek, also referred to as "The Chief," was until 2007 the official symbol of the University of Illinois in university intercollegiate athletic programs. The Chief was typically portrayed by a student dressed in Sioux regalia. Several groups protested that the use of a Native American figure and indigenous customs in such a manner was inappropriate and promoted ethnic stereotypes. In August 2005 the National Collegiate Athletic Association expressed disapproval of the university's use of a "hostile or abusive" image.[156] While initially proposing a consensus approach to the decision about the Chief, the board in 2007 decided that the Chief, its name, image and regalia should be officially retired. Nevertheless, the controversy continues on campus with some students unofficially maintaining the Chief. Complaints continue that indigenous students feel insulted when images of the Chief continue to be present on campus.[157] Clout scandal[edit] Main article: University of Illinois clout scandal A series of investigative reports by the Chicago Tribune noted that between 2005 and 2009 university trustees, president, chancellor, and other administrators pressured admissions officials into admitting under-qualified but politically well-connected applicants into the university.[158][159] Although University officials initially denied,[160] then downplayed the existence of a "clout list",[161] the university later announced it would form a panel of internal and external representatives to review the past admissions process and determine possible changes.[162] The Chicago Tribune took the University to court for summary judgment on its Illinois Freedom of Information Act request for University admission records, which was granted[163] in March 2011. The University appealed, and a number of organizations, including the Electronic Privacy Information Center, filed "friend of the court" briefs[164] on behalf of both parties. Steven Salaita[edit] Main article: Steven Salaita controversy The Steven Salaita controversy was the result of a decision by University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Chancellor Phyllis M. Wise to withdraw an offer of a tenured faculty position to English professor Steven Salaita because of a series of controversial tweets he had made in regards to Israel, Zionism and anti-Semitism.[165][166] Wise’s action prompted a national debate about academic freedom.[167][168][169] From the beginning the decision was supported by Wise and by the University's board of trustees.[170][171][172][173][174][175][176][177] Salaita quickly fought the decision declaring infringement on his academic freedom and insisted the university reinstate its offer rather than search for a financial settlement.[178][179][180][181] This began a long process of litigation. In August 2015, Chancellor Phyllis Wise resigned her role after accusations came forth she hiding emails that involved the rescinding of Salaita's job offer.[182] These emails included conversations regarding the Salaita Controversy. Shortly after Wise's resignation, 41 department heads, chairs and directors published an open letter calling "Acting Chancellor Barbara Wilson and President Timothy Killeen should call for the reinstatement of Steven Salaita at the September 2015 board meeting.[183][184][185][186][187][188] The Salaita case received national attention on academic freedom for faculty
Muftah There Is a “Palestine Exception” to Academic Freedom

In August 2014, Palestinian-American Professor Steven Salaita received an email from Phyllis Wise, the chancellor of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). He had just accepted a tenure-track teaching position in the university’s American Indian Studies program, and was due to start teaching in a few weeks’ time. Wise’s email notified Salaita that he was being terminated, effective immediately.

Salaita had already resigned from his position at Virginia Tech University, relocated his family to Illinois, and was actively preparing for his fall courses. He had also been closely following Operation Protective Edge, Israel’s brutal assault on the besieged population of Gaza that summer, which killed over 2,000 Palestinians. On his Twitter feed, Salaita had actively expressed his outrage over the wanton massacre. His tweets were sometimes eloquent and meditative, sometimes laced with profanity, sometimes strongly worded, and always impassioned. They were also the reasons why he lost his job at UIUC.

Salaita’s tweets included:

This is not a conflict between #Israel and “Hamas.” It’s a struggle by an Indigenous people against a colonial power. #Gaza #FreePalestine

Let’s cut to the chase: If you’re defending #Israel right now you’re an awful human being.

If it’s “antisemitic” to deplore colonization, land theft, and child murder, then what choice does any person of conscience have? #Gaza

I repeat: if you’re defending #Israel right now, then “hopelessly brainwashed” is your best prognosis. #Gaza #FreePalestine

#Israel’s bombardment of #Gaza provides a necessary impetus to reflect on the genocides that accompanied the formation of the United States.

Although some had (unfairly) accused Salaita of professing “anti-Semitic” views, the problem, according to Chancellor Wise, was his “uncivil” demeanor in discussing Israeli atrocities against Gazans. As explained on the Chancellor’s Blog, Wise argued that Salaita had expressed his viewpoints using “personal and disrespectful words or actions that demean and abuse either viewpoints themselves or those who express them.”

But, Salaita (and many others) believed the real reason for Wise’s decision was pressure from wealthy donors who could not abide having a pro-Palestinian professor on campus. As journalist Nadeen Shaker wrote for Muftah,

The donors – largely pro-Israeli sympathizers– sent emails to Phyllis M. Wise, chancellor of the Urbana-Champaign campus, who ultimately withheld Salaita’s appointment. The emails, only three of which [had] been released to the public according to Salaita, threatened to withdraw and deny future funding to the university should Salaita’s appointment be finalized.

Many of these emails were made public, as a result of litigation over Salaita’s termination. In response to Wise’s unjustified actions, Salaita filed two separate lawsuits against the university, one to reinstate his employment and the other to release documents pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

After Salaita’s termination, heated public debate erupted around issues of academic freedom, civil rights, freedom of speech, and the Israeli occupation of Palestine. In the midst of it all, both the chancellor and Provost Ilesanmi Adesida resigned.

Throughout it all, Salaita received substantial support at the university in the form of student walkouts and a vote of “no confidence” for the university’s administration by over a dozen academic departments. More broadly, lectures and events at the university were canceled as part of a far-reaching academic boycott of the university. Many prominent academic organizations, including the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), the Modern Language Association (MLA), the Society of American Law Teachers, and the American Studies Organization (ASA), issued public statements condemning the university’s treatment of Salaita.

On Thursday, November 12, the saga between Salaita and UIUC finally came to a close, after Salaita agreed to settle his claims against the school. Pursuant to the settlement, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign agreed to give Salaita $600,000 and pay his legal fees, amounting to nearly $1 million in damages. The terms of the settlement stipulate that Salaita will not seek employment at the University of Illinois in the future and will drop all claims against the school.

After the settlement was announced, Salaita wrote on his Facebook page:

We settled the case against UIUC today, and I am deeply grateful for the support and solidarity from so many individuals and communities. Together, we sent a strong message to those who would silence Palestine activists and limit speech on campus. The activists, students, academics, and others who spoke up with petitions, demonstrations, and investigations proved that grassroots organizing can make a difference. This is an important victory, even if the bigger fight isn’t over. At this point I am ready to move beyond this particular matter and continue doing what I love—teaching, writing, organizing, and contributing in whatever way I can to struggles for justice.

Although Salaita describes the settlement as a positive development and wishes to put the ordeal behind him, many of his supporters consider it a pyrrhic victory.

After learning of the settlement, over eighty academics issued a statement expressing concern about its terms and implications for freedom of speech, academic freedom, and the proper functioning of an academic institution:

On account of the manner in which Professor Salaita was terminated the American Association of University Professors censured UIUC for its failure to conform to sound academic practices as established in AAUP principles. We feel strongly that the monetary settlement of Professor Salaita’s legal claim does not address the underlying breaches of academic freedom and widely accepted standards for the conduct of academic governance that formed the basis of the AAUP sanction in this matter. For this reason we urge the AAUP to not remove UIUC from its list of censured administrations until such time as UIUC adequately addresses the larger pall of uncertainty that has been cast over the manner in which academic freedom is understood and respected at UIUC.

In an essay for In These Times, writer and political activist Marilyn Katz noted some of the many questions that will remain unanswered now that the lawsuit is not going to trial, including the identity of those who reported Salaita’s tweets to the university and the extent and nature of the effort to unseat Salaita from his position. Most importantly, Katz wonders, “Was Salaita’s treatment the result of a zealous individual or part of a larger scheme that has tried to squelch the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement by trying to pass laws in state legislatures, city councils and elsewhere making divestment illegal?”

While much of the political debate about Salaita has centered around academic freedom and civil liberties, there has been little focus on the nexus between these issues and the Palestinian question, or, as the Center for Constitutional Rights describes it, the “Palestinian exception to free speech.” As writer and activist David Green wrote for Mondoweiss:

Usually lost in this discourse, however, is the question of Palestine. Legal discussions of administrative procedures and a broader discussion of academic freedom obviously have their places. But Salaita is targeted because of what he has said about Palestine. He is targeted because at a national level, the Israel Lobby is afraid that it’s losing its control of the narrative. He is targeted because the Board of Trustees and Phyllis Wise have shown themselves to be not only vulnerable to pressure but actively politically repressive, especially regarding Chris Kennedy (Chair of Board of Trustees) and his actions against Bill Ayers and Kilgore.

Salaita is targeted because he would represent the first voice of Palestinian background on this campus who has a record of substantial and articulate advocacy on this issue. He could have set a precedent and by his presence and voice begun to change the atmosphere on a campus that, other than Francis Boyle (International Law), has lacked a bold and persuasive advocate for Palestinian justice among its faculty, and has lacked scholars who forthrightly address Zionist colonialism, ethnic cleansing, and racism in their work. Salaita represents the return of the repressed and a harbinger of genuine openness, and on this basis he has been further and slanderously repressed.

  • American Free Press ... Now Donald Trump knows the truth about 9/11 ... An activist recently got close to billionaire GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump to confront him over controversial statements Trump made concerning Muslims celebrating the September 11 false-flag attacks. Martin Hill, who maintains the website, had the opportunity to correct Trump, informing the maverick politician that he was wrong. It was Israelis, not Muslims, who were caught dancing and high-fiving following the terrorist event.
  • Brian Boru Nov 2016 "One of the most significant results of this Presidential campaign has been the political awakening of millions of whites. Trump told them the system was rotten and rigged so it became permissible for them to state that openly and with confidence rather than having to first look over their shoulders or wonder whether the person they were speaking to was safe to confide with. The vicious and blatant bias of the media and the opposition were confirmations in the minds of millions that the system was their enemy. They will not easily be lulled back to the suicidal mentality of before. Even if Trump reneges on his promises there will be no more naïve outlook about the system. The distrust will become even more entrenched and the ‘extremist’ message of this site and all the others like it will become more acceptable to the majority of whites. From their ranks will come the infrastructure for resistance to the kikes plans for our extermination." alt right guy..

The author cites a 1938 British Foreign Office report on a meeting between the Director of the Central European Desk and the Polish Ambassador: Poland's Jewish problem was much more serious than Germany's. The Jewish population was proportionately much greater. The Germans were persecuting the Jews largely for reasons of doctrine; in Poland the problem was a very pressing economic one ...

  • McDonald, Kevin Culture of Critique Jews have also adopted crypsis in order to take advantage of economic opportunities. There are many examples of temporary deception, such as Jewish traders posing as gentiles in order to avoid taxes levied on Jews in Arab countries (Stillman 1979), Poland (Weinryb 1972; Hundert 1986), and the Roman Empire (Grant 1973, 225). Reflecting these practices, in the early 5th century the Theodosian Code (CTh 16.8.23) prohibited conversions of convenience by Jews attempting to avoid prosecution for crimes and for avoiding compulsory public services, and in 787 the Council of Nicaea II prohibited such individuals from owning Christian slaves (in Gilchrist 1969, 157).

Did you know that all eight major film studios are run by Jews? But that’s not all. We also control the ads that go on those TV shows. The time has come, though. We no longer have to change our names. We no longer have to blend in like chameleons. We own a whole freaking country.” – Manny Friedman, Times of Israel, july 1, 2012

  • Jewish Press ... 2017 You Think There is No anti-Semitism? Take the anti-Zionist Test By David Collier - 16 Adar 5777 – March 14, 2017 0 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter tweet Photo Credit: {Originally posted to the author’s website, Beyond the Great Divide} This is designed for people who think there is no anti-Semitism in the anti-Zionist, anti-Israel movements. If you know any, ask them to take the test. Before you begin. Imagine: Someone you are connected to continually posts racist memes and comments on Facebook. On his time stream are constant references to racial slurs, using words and phrases that are unacceptable in society. Viscous, vile, offensive posts that draw on awful stereotypes and link back to white supremacy websites. What would you do when you saw them? I hope, as an anti-racist, you would delete him from your friends list or at least confront them about their offensive views. You may now begin the anti-Zionist test. When you have finished, please pass it on to your friends, or other anti-Israel protesters you know. THE ANTI-ZIONIST TEST A few days ago, I posted the result of an investigation into antisemitism inside Palestinian activism in the UK. Since its release, I have received abuse and threats. Some of the more measured criticism has been absurdly to throw the line that ‘anti-Zionism’ is nothing to do with antisemitism. So, I have designed a test to assist in measuring the level of ‘neo-Nazi’ antisemitism ‘IN YOUR ONLINE ENVIRONMENT’. anti-Zionist test part oneThe test starts with an easy exercise in identifying blatant antisemitism. Do you consider any of these comments to be antisemitic? The Jews were behind 9/11 The holocaust is the biggest myth of our time Charlie Hebdo was a false flag carried out by Mossad to make Jews go to Israel Ashkenazi Jews are all fake Jews Kristallnacht was instigated by Jews to promote War against Germany Babylonian Talmud advocates sex with child age three Israel kills people to harvest their organs The answer to this question is ‘all of the above’ and there is little ambiguity here. Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians has nothing to do with any of the above statements. If you have been answering no to the examples above, then you hold blatant antisemitic views and you do not have to participate any further in this anti-Zionist test. If however you answered ‘yes’, then please continue: part two Anti-Zionist testPlease access your Facebook account.Enter each of these words / phrases in turn into the Facebook search bar. Then, by using the left hand menu, filter each of the results to see only posts on the subject made by ‘your friends’ or ‘your friends and groups’: search Mossad Khazar Isis Israel 9/11 Paris False flag Organ trafficking Holocaust Scan the results of each of these words in turn. Your are looking for posts concerning global conspiracy, blood libel or holocaust denial. In this context, use of the word ‘Zionist’ is clearly misplaced. At this stage you can be inventive, mix words, use others connected to historical Jew hatred. Given the research I released last week, your activeness within the anti-Israel organisations is likely to influence the results you see. The more active you are in anti-Israel activity, the more antisemitic posts you are likely to see. If you are highly active and you engage in street protest, your search request will probably be inundate you with antisemitic posts. These are the types of images you are looking for: antisemitic facebook These are only a handful of examples, and I found thousands of related images when doing research into people who claim they are humanitarian, pro-equality and anti-racist. You should be highlighting any posts that imply the mossad / Jews / Israel are connected to some type of global control, conspiracy theory, blood libel or anything that is denying the holocaust. The websites these people link to hard core antisemitic websites. These are just some of the websites that you ought to be looking for: (I am not providing hyperlinks because many of these sites are considered not safe for work). These are not ‘humanitarian’, ‘universalist’ websites who are based on sympathy for Palestinians, but rather ‘neo-Nazi’ sites that push white supremacy, Jewish control and conspiracy theories. Again, these are just some examples: 911 truth websites anti-Zionist test part 3This is a simple exercise. Check your friends list and look for someone who has made this or a similar edit to his Facebook profile picture: truth 9/11 (Note how the Free Palestine flag takes center stage in ‘9/11 truth’ conspiracy theory). Not everyone who pushes 9/11 conspiracy theory is an antisemite, but most of the websites that support the conspiracy theories have tied it back into hard core Jewish global control. As an example, if they are using a version of this profile picture, for them anti-Zionist, is about engaging with a website that thinks Jews control America and Israel is behind both 9/11 and Charlie Hebdo. anti-Zionist test part fourI am quite confident that if you are engaged heavily in anti-Israel discussion, and have dealt with this test sincerely, then you are now fully aware that hard core antisemitism exists even within your own social media circle. A few final questions: Have you deleted any of your friends? Were you surprised at how many you found? How did /would you approach the subject if you confronted them? Did you just excuse it, push it all to one side? If the posts had referred to classic anti-black racism, would you have treated it the same way? Given the history of Jews and antisemitism, imagine a state of Jews. How do you think this state would be viewed by those who hate Jews? As I know how much antisemitism exists on the anti-Israel social media networks, there is clearly something ‘more acceptable’ within left wing groups about antisemitism when compared to other hatreds. Surely this has to change? You can sympathise with Palestinians, without associating with those that hate Jews. Can’t you? Thank you for participating in this anti-Zionist test. Please pass this test on to your friends.

  • Wikileaks .. ANTI-SEMITISM SHOWS ITSELF IN OFFICIAL ARMENIAN PROPAGANDA. Classified By: CDA Joseph Pennington for reasons 1.4 b & d. 1. (C) SUMMARY: Armenia's presidential election period bizarrely featured an unwelcome guest: anti-Semitism. A government-affiliated national television network aired a despicable, hour-long "documentary" of hate speech, that labeled the leading opposition candidate a "Zionist Jew" in cahoots with the Israeli intelligence service just days before the election; thousands of DVDs of the same program were distributed through university student organizations. State television news broadcasts continued the theme during the opposition's post-election rallies, provoking concern that a new and sinister element of hatred has become a tool of Armenian politics. While Armenia's small Jewish community continues to insist that anti-Semitism is unheard of in the country, GOAM efforts to denounce its opponents using anti-Jewish propaganda are, at the least, disturbing. Embassy complained to the government's anti-discrimination czar -- only to have her resign from the government days later, in protest over the larger political situation. END SUMMARY. 2. (U) As reported Ref A, in the days prior to the February 19 election, a viciously anti-opposition DVD began to be distributed primarily to youth groups and at universities. The DVD attempted to portray former President and leading opposition candidate Levon Ter-Petrossian (LTP) in the most crude and outlandish ways as, inter alia, an agent of the Israeli intelligence services and a "Zionist Jew" by virtue of his wife being Jewish. The documentary also mentioned by name the Jewish Amcit Country Director for the EBRD in Armenia as included in LTP's "Zionist plot." Surprisingly, the DVD's "documentaries" were reportedly aired on Armenia's second television channel, H2, on the evening of February 14, where, according to Nielsen ratings, it was viewed by some ten percent of Armenians watching television at the time. H2 is a privatized, formerly state-run network, whose owners are close to ruling party leaders. Its editorial policy is consistently pro-governmental. Among the basest of claims the program made was a "factoid" that when the former President had taken his oath of office in 2001--in front of the Catholicos, no doubt--he had not rested his hand on an Armenian bible but on a copy of the Talmud. (NOTE: Besides the preposterousness of the ancient book shown in the video being anything close to the 24-volume exposition on Jewish law, the claim drew in elements from the notorious Russian forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which purports that the Talmud is the Jewish blueprint for world domination. END NOTE.)
  • Wikileaks ... THE RISING TIDE OF ANTI-SEMITISM AND EXTREMISM IN NORWAY B. OSLO 1141 C. OSLO 1047 OSLO 00001189 001.2 OF 002 1. (SBU) SUMMARY: Anti-Semitism and Muslim extremism appear to be on the rise in Norway. On 22 September authorities charged four men for terrorism in the wake of an attack on the main synagogue in Oslo and related threats to the Israeli and American embassies. Two of the suspects are of Pakistani descent, echoing a growth of extremism in the Pakistani population residing in Norway. This extremism is apparent not only in a rash of anti-Semitic acts, but also in public debate where the image of Israel and the US are warped by misinformation. END SUMMARY. ANTI-SEMITISM, OR ANTI-ISRAELISM? 2. (U) On Sunday 17 September, multiple shots were fired at the Mosaic Religious Community synagogue in Oslo. See ref A for details. Four men in their twenties were arrested on Tuesday 19 September, including two men of Pakistani origin, one of Turkish decent and one who is ethnic Norwegian. One was recorded as stating that the way to solve problems in the Middle East was to slit the Israeli Ambassador's throat. 3. (SBU) The Islamic Council in Norway has been publicly supportive of the Jewish community in the wake of the shooting, sending sympathetic messages through the mail (and the press) stating that 'we are all minorities and should stand together.' One imam, Nehmat Ali Bokhabi, also visited the synagogue in a televised news report. Nevertheless, this same imam was quoted the previous week blaming the US for bringing terrorism upon itself. During the Lebanon crisis in the summer, denunciations of Israeli policies from many imams were extreme. Elements of the Muslim community are clearly hostile towards Israel and Jews. Oslo's synagogue was also the suspected target of an attack foiled by recent arrests in Italy and several newspaper articles stated that Norwegian Muslims were to take part in this attack. 4. (SBU) Newspapers this summer were dominated by public debate on anti-Semitism in the wake of the conflict in Lebanon (reftel B), and there was one known battery of a Jewish person that led community leaders to suggest that their members not wear religious symbols in public. There were several protests by Muslim groups in front of the US and Israeli Embassies. The Mosaic synagogue was vandalized earlier this year on several occasions. 5. (SBU) The escalating extremism and anti-Semitism may be more acceptable due to the increasing anti-Israeli tone that has appeared in mainstream politics and press, which is a sharp departure from the very pro-Israeli stance that was the norm just ten years ago. Jostein Gaarder, one of Norway's most famous authors and writer of the best-selling book Sophie,s World wrote an anti-Semitic article in the summer of 2006 that garnered international condemnation. The resulting debate made it clear that a significant number of Norwegian commentators support his views. This was followed by a recent poll, which showed that Norwegians were the most anti-Israeli of any European nation during the military action in Lebanon. Another poll showed that more Norwegians blamed Israel than Hezbollah for starting the recent war in Lebanon, a view the Foreign Minister called 'wrong.' Norwegian student groups and city councils have called for a boycott of Israel (as did the Finance Minister before later recanting.) On 25 September the Israeli Ambassador in Norway criticized the Norwegian Royal family for not supporting the Jewish population during its time of need in the wake of the synagogue shooting. After criticism from both the Foreign Minister and the press, the Israeli Ambassador apologized. EXTREMISM AND MISINFORMATION 6. (U) The synagogue attack comes on the heels of declarations by two leading imams in Norway that 9/11 was directed by the USG against itself and that Al Qaeda does not exist (reftel A). The imams involved were from the Pakistani community, which numbers about 30,000 and dominates the public discussion on Islam and integration despite the fact that there are several other large Muslim populations in Norway including Iraqis (20,000) Iranians (14,000) and Turks (14,000) who remain largely silent. Other Imams criticized their colleagues for the timing and tone of their comments, but indicated sympathy for the conspiracy theories themselves. The Pakistani community in Norway has its roots OSLO 00001189 002.2 OF 002 in the Kharian district of Pakistan, and many continue to send their children to that area for their elementary education, compounding the difficulties of integration. Gang members from the Pakistani community are very visible and wealthy, and have been involved in acts of violence over the years that continue to hurt the public image of Pakistanis in Norway. The most recent event was a startling daytime shoot-out in the popular port area of Aker Brygge this summer, where several gang members were wounded. Any hope that gang violence would stay in the shadows of the immigrant neighborhoods was shattered. 7. (SBU) Immigrants make up a quarter of the population in Oslo, with an unregistered unemployment rate of 44 percent. In several areas of town the immigrant community lives is what can only be called ghettos, despite the public welfare system's generous funding. Of the three non-ethnically Norwegian suspects in the synagogue shooting, two were unemployed. The Pakistani population is in many respects the most established in Norway with 40 years of history in this country, but very few pursue education beyond the age of 15, and many continue to maintain close ties and even homes in Pakistan. Arranged or forced marriages with partners from Pakistan are still common, leading for calls to establish a higher minimum legal marrying age. Only two Muslims have ever been elected to the Norwegian Parliament, both women. This combination leads to a sense of disenfranchisement in the Pakistani-Norwegian community that is exacerbated by the public extremism of several leading imams and a lack of successful role models in Norwegian society. Additionally, the access to information is limited at times by educational background and linguistic ability, resulting in a proliferation of misinformation. In a recent article by a well-known Norwegian commentator of Pakistani origin, he defended the imam's statements that Al Qaeda does not exist on the grounds of free speech, but seemed most delighted that the imam was able to express himself so well in Norwegian. GOVERNMENT'S RESPONSE 8. (U) The Norwegian government has not been entirely passive. In response to the shooting, the Prime Minister and Justice Minister visited the synagogue. Earlier, the Minister of Labor and Social Inclusion, Bjarne Haakon Hanssen (who is responsible for integration issues) was both quick to condemn conspiracy theories from local imams (inter alia saying that would hurt employment chances for Muslims), and was the first Minister to visit the Pakistani area from which come many Pakistani-Norwegians. He is publicly critical of forced marriages and decisions to send students to Pakistan for their education and expressed surprise at the amount of money that had been funneled into building homes in Pakistan from Norwegian-Pakistanis who were ostensibly committed to their adopted land. In recent years, the GON has dedicated significant resources to provide language training for incoming immigrants, and has tried to work with immigrant and second-generation youth to minimize inner-city violence. Nevertheless, official voices condemning extremist views are few. 9. (SBU) COMMENT: The shooting and threat of terrorism, which can be blamed in part on Norway's failure to successfully integrate its Muslim population, increases our concerns about anti-Semitism and extremism in Norway. Norway remains a very homogenous society, especially outside of Oslo, and the gang violence and religious intolerance is difficult for the Norwegian community to accept as a legacy of immigration. Extremist views in the Muslim community are more visible than before, after exploding onto the scene earlier this year in the cartoon protest. This combination of extremism and anti-Semitism is a surprise to many Norwegian authorities and with very few exceptions they seem uncertain how to combat it in public. Norway is justifiably proud of its reputation as a country for free speech, but this seems to hamper their ability to respond vigorously against radical views. END COMMENT. WHITNEY
  • CAMPUS ANTI-SEMITISM CONTINUED continued from Algemeiner article ...  maintained a memorandum of understanding with An-Najah University, a Hebron-based institution with a history of ties to terrorism and glorifying attacks on Jews -- a relationship for which the California university president continues to voice support. SFSU was also the site of the near-violent disruption of a lecture by Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat. No BDS vote has taken place yet at SFSU, but the school’s General Union of Palestine Students is actively pushing such a measure as part of its anti-Israel agenda, ... Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR), which boasts a substantial coalition of anti-Israel supporters on campus. The group’s president reportedly posted on her Facebook page, "I follow/practice the Boycotts, [sic] Divestment and Sanctions as if it were my religion." Last year, SPHR urged students to support BDS with a video featuring young children saying, "500 kids just like me were killed in Gaza..." A second group, McMaster BDS, promotes the isolation and delegitimization of Israel on campus, repeatedly bringing divestment motions to the Student Union. ...  Students for Justice in Palestine launched a campaign to remove products, such as hummus -- made by the Israeli company Sabra -- from the dining hall, spurring Brown administrators to promise to offer a variety of alternatives to food from the Jewish state. In March, students on campus held an event featuring the controversial Israeli organization Breaking the Silence, made up of IDF veterans who accuse their state of war crimes. Another event was held by anti-Israel groups to commemorate the "Nakba" (the "catastrophe" of the establishment of the Jewish state), on Israeli Independence Day. In October, Jewish student Benjamin Gladstone penned a damning op-ed for the New York Times titled, "Antisemitism at My University, Hidden in Pain Sight." ... There are more than 20 organizations on this campus that engage in anti-Israel activity. Among these is a strong chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, which holds events like the International Campus Day of Action for Palestine and erects mock “apartheid walls.” Israel-related talks are regularly disrupted, including that of Israeli philosopher Moshe Halbertal, who was shouted down when he began to speak. In March, during an aggressive campus-wide campaign to pass a BDS resolution in the student government, Jewish and pro-Israel students said they felt unsafe and marginalized. The motion was ultimately struck down, due to efforts by pro-Israel campus groups, such as UMN Hillel and the school’s Students Supporting Israel chapter, ... The campuses of the City University of New York system have been the site of frequent anti-Zionist and antisemitic incidents, the most blatant of which took place at Brooklyn College -- among the schools listed as "hotspots" of antisemitism in a report conducted by Brandeis University and released in October. The school has an active chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, and the classroom often plays host to a political battleground between the campus's many Jewish students and their anti-Israel peers and professors. Jewish teachers have also been targeted. In one instance, a student in a group that crashed a Faculty Council meeting allegedly yelled "Zionist Jew" at a professor wearing a kippah. Though the college and the general CUNY system responded to widespread criticism by engaging in investigations of campus antisemitism, Jewish groups were disappointed with the results and say no meaningful change is on the horizon. ...  Canadian-Jewish media mogul Paul Bronfman announced he would cease donating money to York, when his attention was called to a virulently anti-Israel mural, called “Palestinian Roots” -- the winner of a 2013 student contest -- which had been hanging in the student lounge for three years. In addition, a BDS resolution was passed by the student government, with only one abstention, and five members of an advisory committee selected to advance “inclusion” on campus allegedly had a history of accusing Israel of committing genocide. But, the Jewish York community claimed a victory when one professor was fired for antisemitic social media posts ... UC Irvine, home of the infamous Irvine 11 case (wherein 10 Muslim students found guilty of disrupting a 2010 speech at the campus by then Israeli Ambassador to the US Michael Oren were sentenced to informal probation), was the site of a violent anti-Israel protest this year. When a mob of 50+ demonstrators stormed a screening of an Israeli film -- shouting “Long live the intifada!” and “All white people need to die,” the filmgoers were forced to barricade themselves inside. One Jewish student who arrived to see the film was chased into a nearby dorm, from where she was rescued by police after calling 911. In addition, during this year’s Anti-Zionist Week on campus, a display called for “resistance” against Israel and glorified convicted terrorist hijacker Leila Khaled. In October, some 30 anti-Israel protesters disrupted an event featuring former Israeli Chief Justice Aharon Barak, requiring police to escort him and other attendees from the room. Other Israel-related events at the school have subsequently been held in secret, ...  anti-Israel activists at SDSU ambushed the university president and imprisoned him in a police vehicle, for what they considered to be his inadequate response to a poster on campus naming specific students as supporters of terrorism. Though a student government BDS resolution last year failed to garner the necessary ⅔ majority for its passage, it received a majority of votes. The divestment-from-Israel campaign is ongoing, with a substantial coalition taking part in the effort. One of the groups involved, Students for Justice in Palestine, said that it was compelled to cancel a scheduled lecture by Miko Peled -- who has called Jews "sleazy thieves" and attacks Israel regularly on social media -- after "Jewish allies confirmed that [Peled's] tweets were offensive ... Life at Stanford is reportedly “uncomfortable” for anyone who supports Israel. The anti-Israel atmosphere at the private research university in California is spread mainly by the school’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. In addition, the student government, which successfully passed a BDS motion, has exhibited antisemitic behavior. One student senator was questioned about how her Jewish identity would affect her student government role where supporting divestment from Israel was concerned. Another student senator objected to a resolution opposing antisemitism, on the grounds that it was "valid" to consider whether Jews control the government and the media. Though he was not re-elected, he did garner many hundreds of votes. Some faculty members, too, are outspoken BDS promoters, including among them leading anti-Israel activist Professor David Palumbo-Liu. Nevertheless, Stanford Business School students recently returned from an extensive visit to the Jewish state, and it is reported that Jewish presence at the school is strong ... Northwestern University was named a “hotspot” of antisemitism and anti-Zionism in a recently released Brandeis study. According to one student leader, anti-Israel groups, such as Students for Justice in Palestine and NU Divest, have “co-opted many social justice movements” in the effort to promote BDS activity. Though the Illinois-based school hosts a wide array of Jewish and pro-Israel organizations, it is no stranger to antisemitic expression. Earlier this month, a Jewish professor walking near the campus Hillel was given the Nazi salute accompanied by calls of “Heil Hitler” by a man in a passing vehicle. Earlier in the year, two students were charged with vandalizing a school chapel with racist graffiti, including a swastika ... Jewish students at this school (UofMichigan) have reported feeling isolated on campus. Pro-Israel and Jewish groups have come up against 10 different BDS resolutions in the past few years, most recently in November 2016. Though all have failed, anti-Israel activists pledge to continue trying. One group, Students Allied for Freedom and Equality (SAFE), assembles annual anti-Israel displays on campus, such as mock Israeli checkpoints and an “apartheid wall.” This year, such a wall was erected on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, thereby preventing a meaningful response from the pro-Israel community, members of which were off campus celebrating the holiday. Last year SAFE members attempted to impeach a student government leader because he proposed engaging in constructive dialogue with pro-Israel students. ... The Tufts chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine hosts a popular, event-packed “Israel Apartheid Week," marked by the demonization of Israel and BDS promotion -- though proposed resolutions have not been passed by the student government. A post on the group’s Facebook page called activist organization Students Supporting Israel (SSI) "literally a hate group." As part of a campaign called the Palestine Advocacy Project, large stickers were placed around campus that featured distorted quotes from past and present Israeli and Jewish leaders, portraying them as advocates of torture ... Jewish students and faculty at UC Santa Cruz were subject this year to several antisemitic and racist attacks. In three separate instances, the campus network was hacked, causing printers to spew out fliers adorned with swastikas; phrases such as “k*** demon” and the claim that “f***-ing Jews control the f***ing media.” In addition, activist groups hold annual Israel Apartheid Week events. Five UCSC departments co-sponsored, with the school’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, a lecture in which Israel was accused of ethnic cleansing. Late last year, an event held to express solidarity with Israeli victims of terrorism was interrupted by SJP students staging a "die-in" and justifying violence against Jews with signs reading, “Resistance is not terrorism.” ... Hunter College was the site this year of an antisemitic demonstration -- part of the countrywide Million Student March -- heavily promoted by Students for Justice in Palestine. Though the march was supposedly about lowering tuition or waiving it altogether, at the event in question, protesters waved Palestinian flags and chanted: “Palestine will be free, from the river to the sea," “There Is Only One Solution: Intifada, Revolution,” and “Zionists Out of CUNY.” There were also reportedly shouts of "Jews out of CUNY" and "Death to Jews." A CUNY inquiry into campus antisemitism included an examination of this incident, but investigators concluded they could not confirm that it was specifically CUNY students involved.... University of Massachusetts, Amherst Amherst, Massachusetts In a landslide vote, the Graduate Employee Union at this campus passed an anti-Israel divestment resolution, while rejecting measures condemning antisemitism, and both students and faculty members continue to promote BDS on campus. One professor led a campaign to have the Israeli company Sabra, which produces spreads like hummus, have a “Boycott Israeli Apartheid” sticker affixed to its foodstuffs sold at campus stores. Over the past year, numerous swastikas were found in campus bathroom stalls, and dozens of white supremacy fliers were distributed at different locations. Some UMass Jewish students have complained of the lackluster response on the part of the administration to such expressions of hatred. .. DePaul University, Though this Catholic institution has stated that it will not consider divestment from Israel, DePaul hosts an annual fall Festival of Resistance, a series of educational and cultural events highlighting the "Israeli occupation." This year, printers at the school were hacked, and faculty was warned in an email that “antisemitic and white supremacist flyers [were] appearing in output trays throughout DePaul's campus.” A BDS motion passed a few years ago was recently defeated in the Student Senate, but it was a fight that pro-Israel students said was extremely challenging -- as the DePaul Divest coalition accused the campus Hillel of bribing student senators for their votes, ... Rutgers U, Several antisemitic incidents have been reported at Rutgers, with Jewish students -- who say they have a strong and tight-knit community -- claiming that the administration does not take their complaints about swastikas on campus and other issues seriously enough. The school’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine regularly stages anti-Israel events -- among them the recent hosting of a lecture by radical anti-Zionist activist Miko Peled -- geared towards demonizing the Jewish state and promoting BDS. Rutgers is also home to a number of anti-Israel faculty members, most notably Professor Jasbir Puar, who accused Israel of harvesting the organs of Palestinians, among other blood libels, during a lecture at Vassar.  ... UC Davis, whose student body has passed a BDS resolution, has a purportedly “fragmented” Jewish community, members of which report being “fearful of retribution” for -- something that has caused the diminishing of such activity. Antisemitism and anti-Zionism are rampant on campus, and the school’s Students for Justice in Palestine chapter regularly protests pro-Israel and Jewish events, such as an Artists4Israel exhibit and a lecture by Arab-Israeli diplomat George Deek. Earlier in 2016, swastika-adorned fliers -- asking "white men" if they were “sick and tired of the Jews destroying your country” -- appeared in printer trays across campus ...Ohio State: Anti-Israel student groups are very active at OSU, whose chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voice for Peace recently co-hosted an initiative to shut down campus programs that sponsor free trips to Israel. Members of these groups vowed to monitor and record students who did not take part; vowed to impeach student senators who opposed the initiative; and openly threatened those who took, or were considering taking, the trips. Though a BDS motion failed twice to pass a student government vote, the effort to promote divestment from Israel continues. As part of that effort, activists engaged in an eight-hour "occupation" of the space outside the university president's office -- leaving the premises only after being threatened with expulsion and arrest. OSU was also the site of the November 28 car-ramming and mass stabbing attack, committed by a radical Muslim student, who was shot and killed by police. ... Wesleyan's student assembly voted in favor of a BDS motion a few years ago, and the Wes Divest coalition leading the anti-Israel initiative continues its attempts to push the university to boycott the Jewish state. The school's chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voice for Peace are highly active, staging events and programs throughout the year that amplify virulently anti-Israel and antisemitic voices. A main focus of SJP is support for "#FreeRasmea," the effort to get convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odea absolved of charges in the US for “unlawful procurement of naturalization," after she lied about being a convicted murderer in Israel. ... UNC: Antisemitism at the University of North Carolina does not receive a lot of national attention, but one student said she believes the UNC school system may be heading the way of the infamously anti-Israel University of California campuses. Students have reported being spat on when wearing Stars of David or IDF sweatshirts, and say the administration has done little to protect the school’s Jewish population. The UNC Hillel chapter recently hired a rabbi who has led anti-Israel tours of the Jewish state. ... Harvard: During the Q&A period following a lecture delivered by a former Israeli foreign minister at the Harvard Law School in April, MK Tzipi Livni was asked by a supporter of Students for Justice in Palestine why she was "so smelly.” The administration called the incident an “embarrassment,” but officials and students worked to maintain the anonymity of the individual who had made the remark, so as not to derail his future job prospects. In other incidents at the Law School, an anti-Israel student group falsely claimed its activities were being suppressed by outside pro-Israel donors, and a visiting professor received a postcard filled with offensive messages, including the German phrase, "Juden raus” (“Jews out”). At the undergraduate school, an Iranian professor who regularly derides Israel and the Jews -- and is aligned with the Islamist regime in Tehran -- was employed as a visiting scholar ... University of Texas, Austin: This year, Jewish and pro-Israel students at UT Austin withdrew support from a program featuring renowned American-Israeli writer Caroline Glick, out of fear that her staunch conservative message might anger anti-Zionist peers with whom they were attempting to make alliances. The anti-Israel activism network on campus makes its presence known through an annual Israeli Apartheid Week, and previously disrupted an Israel Studies lecture, engaging in a smear campaign against an Israeli faculty member. Though the Zionist and Jewish community on campus is significant, the student body’s attitude toward Israel is reported to be "generally apathetic ... University of Illinois: UIUC has seen a steady stream of attempts to demonize and delegitimize Israel. In 2014-15, the school made headlines when it first offered a teaching position to anti-Israel activist Steven Salaita and then retracted it, when the board discovered a series of antisemitic tweets he had posted following Operation Protective Edge, Israel's 2014 war against Hamas in Gaza. More recently, after participating in "A Roundtable Discussion of Racism, Antisemitism: On Campus and Beyond” -- the president of the school's Students for Justice in Palestine chapter announced: "I have no will, no desire and, quite frankly, no f***ing time to deal with Zionist bullshit." Last year, the menorah at the school's Chabad house was vandalized three times. However, there is a strong grassroots pro-Israel student movement at UIUC, with a supportive on-campus Jewish leadership. ... Georgetown: Antisemitic graffiti has been found at this premier DC-based institution, most recently in a bathroom at the medical school. Dozens of faculty members have expressed their support for divestment from Israel, and some have ties to a group suspected of being a front for the Muslim Brotherhood. Though no student resolution for BDS has yet been put to a vote, the school's highly active Students for Justice in Palestine chapter is focused on its campaign to delegitimize Israel on campus. However, an attempt in September to disrupt a panel discussion on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was quickly and efficiently derailed by the moderator, winning praise from pro-Israel students ... Syracuse: Faculty, not students, lead the charge for divestment from Israel at Syracuse. One professor cited threats from and worries about BDS-supporting colleagues as her reason for rescinding an invitation to an Israeli filmmaker to speak on campus. Jewish and anti-BDS scholars found the incident "disgraceful and shameful," and argued it was in violation of Syracuse University policy, the principles of academic freedom and the First Amendment. BDS-supporting professors, for their part, subsequently denied they'd had anything to do with the cancellation. A month later, 37 Syracuse University community members published a letter asserting their support for academic freedom, while simultaneously urging the boycott of a conference on conflict resolution, because it was co-sponsored by Tel Aviv University ... Swastikas and other white supremacy symbols were found on the University of Wisconsin, Madison campus over the past year. Ranked regularly as one of the 50 top schools in America -- and a popular choice among Jewish students -- it has an active Students for Justice in Palestine chapter. The university's Teaching Assistants’ Association voted in favor of adopting a BDS resolution, and called on both the union's international parent labor organization and the University of Wisconsin System to divest from Israel. ... University of Tennesee: Campus watchdog group Canary Mission described a "cesspool" of antisemitism at this university, after students and alums associated with the school's chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine were found to be vocalizing and promoting anti-Jewish rhetoric on social media. One such post lauded Hitler as "a boss." Jewish organizations slammed UTK for its "tepid" response to the allegations and said administrators were refusing to recognize a serious problem on campus.
  • Politico When the Senate begins to consider President-elect Donald Trump’s choice to run the Department of Education, Congress should focus on the surge of anti-Semitism that continues to plague our nation’s campuses. Over the past few years, anti-Semitism has reached a tipping point around the country. The FBI reported that there were more Jewish hate crime victims last year than victims of all other religious groups combined. Nowhere is this problem worse than on college campuses where anti-Semitic incidents are escalating at an alarming rate. More than half of Jewish students reported experiencing or witnessing anti-Semitism in 2014 and 2015, according to two recent studies. Another study showed a 45 percent increase in campus anti-Semitism in the first half of 2016, compared with the first half of 2015.

  • The Heretical There are some who regard this kind of word-juggling as a peculiar talent of those mystical Zionists who are involved with the esoteric doctrines of Kabbalism. In these arcane and little-known affairs, letters and syllables take on a bizarre significance not found in any other tongue. “Occult” experts today declare that there are certain vocal sounds and calligraphic shapes that can be used to conjure up powerful reactions in the everyday world of phenomena. This supposedly is why Hebrew is the pre-eminent language of sorcery, just as the six-pointed Star of David on the Zionist flag is perhaps the most common symbol in the “black arts.” Whatever the truth of all this may be – and science today is approaching closer to the long-derided “irrational” side of experience – there is no question of Zionist word wizardry in view of their success in making the ridiculous neologism “anti-Semitism” a powerful psychological weapon. Nothing is surprising in this fraud-ridden business: it is a fact that the “anti-Semitism” conceit was coined in a half-jocular way by a 19th century Jewish journalist named Wilhelm Marr. That Marr himself was “anti-Semitic” is only one more wrinkle in the swirl. MORE

Courses are being included for high school and college students, with the objective that no one may pass through the Halls of Ivy without becoming familiar with "the historical record of Jewish victimization." Courses require textbooks, and Nationalism & Antisemitism in Europe 1815-1945, by Shmuel Almog, is the first in a series prepared for use by college students and high school instructors by the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in cooperation with the Zalman Shazar Center for Jewish History of the Historical Society of Israel. Editions are simultaneously being made available in the United States, Britain, Canada, Germany, Brazil, Australia, Japan and the People's Republic of China. In his preface, Prof. Almog admits that the drive to focus attention on this topic has been prompted as a response to "the revisionist denial that the Holocaust ever occurred, or the attempt to diminish its magnitude." Revisionism and the new wave of nationalism sweeping through the former satellites of the crumbling Soviet Empire "obligate us to probe the history of Jew-hatred (and) the persistence of this phenomenon." ... What the author seeks to reveal is the persistence and continuity of anti-Jewish sentiment throughout Europe following the fall of Napoleon. Wherever peoples strove for self-determination, Jews were viewed with distrust by patriotic elements. Consequently, Almog observes, "modern antisemitism is incomprehensible without reverence to nationalism."

"Anti-Semitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Semitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities."
  • Breitbart Greece: Anti-Semitic 9/11 Truther Minister Resigns ... Kammenos’s Twitter account, @portaporta, no longer exists, but Greek websites were quick to screencap his offensive postings. In one tweet, he published a doctored image of the gates of Auschwitz; instead of reading “Arbeit Macht Frei” (“Work Makes you Free”), the sign read, in Greek, “Menoume Europi” (“We Stay in Europe”). The comparison of a Nazi concentration camp to the European Union offended many. In another tweet, Kammenos pondered aloud whether Jewish people were responsible for the September 11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York. “And let’s not forget 9/11. Of the 2,500 working in the Twin Towers, none of the Jews working there went to work that day,” Kammeno's said his staff wrote the passages and disavowed them...Tsipras has released a statement saying that Kammenos’s presence in the government “would not be compatible with the values” of his party. Tsipras appointed Kammenos at the behest of the head of ANEL, Panos Kammenos (no relation), who has previously claimed that Jews “don’t pay taxes” in Greece and has been widely accused of anti-Semitism.

  • Vox (Pro Zionist)There were 7,000 anti-Semitic attacks under Obama. Updated by Sarah Wildman ... The 130 bomb threats called in to Jewish organizations across the US in the first months of 2017 have ... Overall, there was an average of 84 incidents a month under the Obama administration. Let’s step back for a moment and compare that to the 95 incidents between January and February 2017. That’s a 10% increase. It could be more once all the data comes in. Second, the amplification effect of social media has changed the impact of a single incident. It’s also not entirely true that anti-Semitic incidents that took place in the Obama years were ignored by the media, let alone the ADL. ... And as Allison Kaplan Sommer points out in the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, “Frantzman’s math failed to factor in the unusual scale and nature of the 2017 bomb threat waves that caused some experts to sit up and take notice.” ... She notes that Paul Goldenberg, the national director of a Jewish organization called the Secure Community Network, told CNN he’d never seen anything like the current wave of threats in more than 20 years of work protecting Jewish facilities across the US. Yet Frantzman sees this hype coming not just from the press but also from the ADL. He quotes national director Jonathan Greenblatt, who told the organization’s national conference last November that “[a]nti-Jewish public and political discourse in America is worse than at any point since the 1930s,” citing the far right — and the far left. ... of a photo of Hillary Clinton next to a Jewish star of David emblazoned with the words “Most corrupt candidate ever!” atop a pile of money. The image seemed to speak to a series of ancient anti-Jewish canards about money and power. ... On this year’s International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Trump White House issued a statement that didn’t mention Jews. Trump has been alarmingly quiet about anti-Jewish threats ... Through two February press conferences — one held alongside the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu — the president could barely utter the phrase “anti-Semitism,” let alone condemn it, and dodged pointed questions about the increasing anxiety in the Jewish community. It took Trump until February 22 to actually call the threats to the Jewish community “horrible.” In his February 28 address to Congress, Trump proclaimed that “we are a country united in condemning hate.” But he appeared to undermine that message by having wondering aloud, the day before, if the attacks were faked to harm him politically. That’s preposterous. An ADL/ProPublica study published March 8 noted that “[a]fter years of decline, anti-Semitic crimes began trending upward in 2015, according to FBI data.” The increase, the study noted, seemed to have “accelerated” over the course of the second half of the election, “as Trump’s unique brand of nativist populism has helped to pull more extreme right-wing groups, some of them avowedly racist, closer to the political mainstream”:




Reject NeoNazis and the use of the swastika. It reinforces the Holocaust lie whose central theme is to blame the German people for an event that never occured and lay an interminable guilt upon them in order to extract hundreds of millions in reparations. ... No Jews died in gas chambers in Auschwitz. Hundreds of thousands of Jews did die from typhus, starvation and disease due to the chaos of war and Allied terror bombing of Germany. 60 million people died due to the Jewish Bolshevik Revoltution, Holodomor ... Zionists are trying to rub out this historical fact by endless Holocaust propaganda.
