Jewish students are this week facing a coordinated, vitriolic campaign to demonize Israel.
Israeli Apartheid Week is an effort by groups and activists supporting boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israel to discredit it and label it an “apartheid state.
This campaign was kicked off Monday in many cities and college campuses worldwide.
“Students and faculty need accurate and relevant information to combat Israeli Apartheid Week and other delegitimization campaigns they face on campus,” says Prof. Gerald Steinberg.
He is president of Jerusalem-based NGO Monitor, a research institution that tracks nongovernmental organizations.
“IAW essentially is a series of ‘mini-Durban’ events – based on the strategy adopted at the 2001 Durban Conference that exploits human rights language to isolate and demonize Israel,” he said.
Israeli Apartheid Week – actually running two weeks, from March 7-20 – will involve speakers from various NGOs at campuses throughout the US, Canada and Europe, many representing organizations that NGO Monitor characterizes as being actively anti-Israel.

The Apartheid accusations against Israel is based on falsehood.
While the Muslim World is as Jew free as Nazi-Germany was in 1945, Israel is the home of two million Israeli Arabs, the large majority of them Muslims.
They live inside the only free and democratic nation in the Middle East. The only nation that respect human rights, and have a government that can be replaced without violence.
It is mainly dark-age-styled Islamic nations that accuse Israel of being an Apartheid state. The motive is to demonize the Jewish statehood, in a bid to see it being dissolved. When the light of the Middle East is gone, people who live in darkness will no longer be exposed. It will be only darkness, dictatorship and cruel oppression all the way from Rabat to Tehran.
Stand up for Israel. Stand up for the Jewish people.
