The “lawless behavior” of the anti-Israel demonstrators who have taken over two academic buildings at California State Polytechnic University, Humboldt, was denounced in a statement released on Sunday and dubbed “Intifada Hall.”. “.”.

The university claimed that the “continuous unlawful occupation of campus buildings by students and non-students” was the real problem, not the protest per se. “.

The protesters have engaged in objectionable actions that have created safety hazards for those who have barricaded themselves inside the building by blocking exits, according to the university. These actions include “criminal acts” like “vandalism, theft, destruction of state property, and intimidation of University employees.”. “.

The university stated, “This has nothing to do with freedom of speech or freedom of inquiry.”. Lawless behavior has undermined the reputation of our school, hurt the great majority of our students whose education has been disrupted, and depleted resources from achieving our main goals in education. “.

Protesters inside Siemens Hall, one of two buildings that have been taken over, were asked to move their demonstration outside, but they refused, according to the university. People refused to be arrested when police tried to enforce the order to disperse, resulting in an altercation that got worse and forced the police to retreat.

The University stated that its objective “has always been to bring about a peaceful end to the occupation, and we will keep speaking with anyone who is open to a courteous and fruitful exchange of ideas.”. “.

The estimated cost of illicit activity is expected to be “in the millions.”. “.

“That comprises the loss of revenue from interruption to University operations, as well as the supplies and personnel needed to repair that damage caused by theft, vandalism, and graffiti,” the University stated. “However, the real expense has been the disturbance of our students’ education, as they came to pursue higher education and a college degree.”. “.

Days after a small group of demonstrators set up tents and took over the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan, anti-Israel demonstrations erupted once more outside the building on Sunday.

A few FIT students held a brief rally before marching to 7th Avenue and 28th Street to set up a “Gaza Solidarity Encampment.”. “.

“There is only one solution, intifada revolution!” are being chanted by demonstrators in a video that Fox News Digital was able to obtain.

Around the encampment, there were numerous banners and signs that read things like “End Genocide” and “While we are learning, Gaza is burning.”. “.

Protesters overpowered security personnel on Thursday as they broke into the FIT building. Wearing facemasks and keffiyehs, many of them milled about or sat on the floor.

Palestinian flags and signs were carried by other demonstrators who were gathered outside the building. Inside a campus building, about twelve protestors slept in sleeping bags and tents. The museum of the institute, housed in the structure where the protesters camped out, was closed on Friday.

Universities all around the U.S. S. reports claiming that some of the anti-Israel demonstrators taking part in demonstrations and being arrested are outsiders rather than students.

Twenty of the 28 individuals detained during a protest at the Emory quad were students, according to a statement issued by Emory University in Atlanta on Thursday.

Cheryl Elliott, the vice president of public safety at Emory University, stated in the statement that a few dozen demonstrators showed up on campus shortly before 7:45 a.m. me.

She claimed that after the demonstrators showed up, they pushed past Emory Police Department (EPD) officers positioned at the quad and pitched tents where supplies and equipment were arranged for a commencement ceremony.

The campus of California State Polytechnic University, Humboldt will be closed for the remainder of the semester due to the ongoing occupation of two academic buildings by anti-Israel demonstrators.

The university said that a “hard closure” was in effect and that anyone who did not have permission could not enter or remain on campus in a message that was posted on Saturday.

The university stated that anyone found on campus without authorization faces citation or even arrest.

According to the university, “students who live on campus in residence halls are presumed to have permission to remain in the limited area of the hall they live in and dining facilities.”. “Student residents do not have authorization to be in other areas of campus until further notice. “.

Amid wider nationwide protests against the Israel-Hamas war, which saw protestors occupying Siemens Hall and Nelson, the university closed down the entire campus late on Monday.

The occupation is known as “Intifada Hall” by the protestors there. “.

On Sunday, Bloomington Mayor Kerry Thomson made it clear that she supports the anti-Israel demonstrators on the Indiana University campus and urged law enforcement to employ de-escalation techniques instead of using force.

Thomson stated that her goal in promoting nonviolent demonstrations and ensuring “de-escalation rather than the use of force” in a video statement posted to Facebook on Sunday. “.

“My message yesterday really aimed to support the nonviolent demonstrators and make it apparent that our police department, the Bloomington Police Department, would not be participating in further confrontations with the demonstrators in the future. “Thompson stated.”.

Reiterating her support for the anti-Israel demonstrators, she declared that she was in favor of their “right to free speech [and] right to assemble.”. “.

Only after all de-escalation options have been tried, the mayor recommended that police step in. “.

“I’m hoping we can keep going and get better knowledge together. I’m thankful for your response and support, and I’m determined to learn from this experience,” stated Thomson.

Speaking at the nearby Islamic Institute of Knowledge, a religious leader in Dearborn, Michigan, likened Israel to both Nazi Germany and ISIS.

“The modern-day ISIS is Zionism. The leader of the mosque in the Dearborn area, Dr. Baqir Berry, stated in the sermon that “if there was an ISIS for the Muslims, there is also an ISIS for the Jews,” according to a translation provided by the Middle East Research Institute (MEMRI). “Compared to the ISIS of the Muslims, this ISIS (Jewish) is a million times worse. This should be known to us. A million times (or worse). The crimes committed by Zionists were not committed by ISIS members. “.”.

During last week’s Friday sermon, Dearborn made remarks that have gained national attention as a point of resistance against President Biden’s reelection campaign due to his handling of the Gaza conflict.

Over 100,000 voters cast protest votes during Michigan’s Democratic primary in February, spurred by activists in Dearborn, which has the highest per capita Muslim population in the nation, to indicate “uncommitted” on their ballots rather than supporting the president.

However, worries regarding radical rhetoric coming from Dearborn have also been raised. This was the case most recently following a rally on the final Friday of Ramadan, where a speaker led the attendees in chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”. “.

Concerns persist despite the fact that local religious leaders and leaders of the “Listen to Michigan” and “Abandon Biden” movements told Fox News Digital last week that such rhetoric only represents a vocal minority of the community.

Steven Stalinsky, the executive director of MEMRI, stated to Fox News Digital last week that “there is definitely support for Hezbollah, Hamas, and Iran.”.

On Saturday, journalist Kara Swisher stated that it might be interpreted as “anti-American” to not encourage younger people participating in college protests. “.

As Eliana Johnson of the Washington Free Beacon discussed the anti-Israel protests taking place on college campuses on CNN, she said it would be wise politically for President Biden to publicly criticize the demonstrators who are telling Jews to return to Poland and asserting that Zionists are undeserving of life.

“Well, it seems like some people are saying that,” interrupted Swisher. “It’s interesting to see how quickly people’s opinions are changing. Are you for protests and the right to free speech, or are you for order and against chaos? “Order, order, we must have order,” exclaim all the free-speech warriors at once. “”.

There is a limit to how much you can do to help young people, particularly when they make poor decisions, despite the horrible things that are said. It’s almost anti-American, in a way, to not support them,” she said.

Johnson replied that while free speech was acceptable, the protesters had a significant impact on university life. Following the protests, Southern California University (USC) postponed its commencement ceremony and Columbia University moved its classes online.

“We have not only stopped atheism, but we have also shut down university operations. Furthermore, she said, “I do believe that Biden missed an opportunity to state that there are boundaries, that harassment and disruption have crossed the line, and that we will not tolerate it.

This is a passage from a Hanna Panreck article that was published on Fox News.

Rep. During his Sunday appearance on “Fox News Live,” Texas Representative Pat Fallon, a Republican, claimed that the organizers of the pro-Palestinian protests are “bullies” and urged colleges to demonstrate their “strength.”. “.

“You should be removed from your university and, if you’re a student, expelled, if you’re constantly disobeying the university’s legal orders. That would put an immediate stop to these unlawful protests. Fallon declared, “You should be arrested and prosecuted if you are trespassing and you are not a part of this university.”.

“However, they are attempting to reach an agreement. The asylum is being allowed to be run by the patients. The president of Columbia University, he continued, won’t even denounce the genocidal cry, “From the river to the sea.”.

“Show some strength for a change,” Fallon continued, urging President Biden. He maintained that Biden ought to ask demonstrators in a nationally televised speech what Israel ought to have done following October 7 and whether Israel is entitled to exist and defend itself.

Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor emeritus, discusses the rise in antisemitism and shares his opinions on the case of New York v. Trump.

According to Dershowitz, “[Universities] have been teaching antisemitism for several years.”. “Among those gathered in front of Columbia University are those who will aid Hamas, turn into terrorists, and form the fifth column. I know this because I stood in for a lot of protestors and dissidents in the 1960s and 1970s. A few of them went from supporting terrorism to actually becoming terrorists, and you know what happened to them? “.

Dershowitz went on to give two instances of female activists who joined the infamous Weather Underground organization and went from being protesters to terrorists.

“These protesters are going to experience that. It will be showing in a theater close to you. These are the people who will assist Hamas in planting bombs in America, as they will, in the same manner as the radical Weather people did in the 1970s, by approaching some of the children they have been raising for years. ****.

Many George Washington University students are tired of the ongoing anti-Israel demonstrations on college campuses, which don’t appear to be ending anytime soon.

Richard Li, a student at GWU, is defending his Jewish classmates who are in danger after fleeing religious persecution as a Christian in China when he was 12 years old.

Hatred is the foundation of all oppression. And hatred has always begun with antisemitism, and that is exactly what we are witnessing on college campuses today, right in front of our doors. During an appearance on “Fox and Friends Weekend,” Li argued that it’s very, very sad. “.

At least seven student protestors at George Washington University were suspended after they set up an anti-Israel camp on campus and would not go when the protests continued into a third day. After declaring that the group was “not going anywhere” 57 hours into the encampment, one protester went viral.

One result of Columbia University’s disruptive anti-Israel protests that made headlines was a sudden increase in on-campus encampments at American universities.

This is a passage taken from an article written by Kayla Bailey for Fox News.

Reports that Columbia University would order a lockdown on campus or start evicting people on Saturday were refuted.

For over a week, demonstrators have been encamped on Columbia University’s campus, calling for the college to cut ties with businesses that support Israel. Up until now, the administration has allowed the encampment despite a few arrests being made.

Talks are still going on between organizers from the student body and university representatives. The Columbia administration issued a statement that stated, “We want to be clear: There is no truth to claims of an impending lockdown or evictions on campus.”.

The declaration was made the day after Columbia was compelled to expel a student for talking about “murdering Zionists” during the demonstration.

After going viral on the internet for saying that people should be “grateful” that he wasn’t “murdering Zionists,” whom he compared to “White supremacists” and “Nazis,” Junior Khymani James expressed “regret” early on Friday. ****.

James acknowledged making controversial remarks during a livestream of an official Columbia investigation in January, without specifically naming what they were. The remarks were initially revealed by The Daily Wire.

During the livestream, James was asked if he would stay on as a student at Columbia and said, “I actually kind of hope they do kick me out because I’ve been meaning to travel to South America.”.

A new documentary exposes the horrors and sexual assaults against Israelis, nearly seven months after the October 7 massacre.

First-hand recollections of the atrocities of that day, when about 1,200 Israeli lives were taken, are featured in the documentary “Screams Before Silence,” directed by former Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.

You realize that something far worse is going on over there when you’ve been listening to this chaos for fifteen or twenty minutes. It doesn’t end. At that point in time, I began to fear that I would be sexually assaulted,” a woman recounted from the attack at the Nova Music Festival.

Sandberg stated that she took on the project because “the world needs to see and acknowledge what happened” on “America’s Newsroom” on Friday. ****.

Mass sexual violence as well as mass murder were the subject of reports that surfaced after October 7. And those who usually speak up about it were either denying it or ignoring it. The founder of Lean In informed Dana Perino, “And that’s not okay.”.

Watchers can hear firsthand accounts from survivors and first responders who were on the ground in the documentary.

This is a passage taken from an article written by Amy Nelson for Fox News.

The University of Southern California has announced that it is getting ready to take action against the anti-Israel protestors who have occupied the campus for several days in spite of directives to leave.

Joel Curran, senior vice president of communications at USC, claimed that people who belong to the group that has been unlawfully camping on campus are the ones who have been vandalizing the university’s property on a regular basis. “.”.

Curran stated, “This group has also continued to disrupt our campus operations and harass students and others, in violation of numerous university policies, despite repeated warnings.”.

He continued, “These acts of harassment and vandalism are completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated, even though the university fully supports freedom of expression.”.

Curran continued by stating that although University President Carol Folt has attempted to meet with the demonstrators, her offers have been turned down.

Before we are compelled to take more action, we are hoping for a more reasonable response on Sunday, according to Curran. “We need this space to set up for commencement early this week. “.

Before the general election in November, Democrats cannot agree on whether the party has an antisemitism problem.

Rep. […] claims that Jews will never replace us or that the former president said there were “very fine people on both sides” are easily criticized by those brandishing Tiki torches. Jared Moskowitz, the Florida Democratic Party. said, alluding to a 2017 White nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in a statement to Fox News Digital.

“But when Democrats turn inward and see ‘go back to Poland’ or ‘kill the Zionists,’ they either remain silent or pretend the antisemitic rhetoric on the left doesn’t exist,” he continued. “And it turns out that there is a similarity between the right and the left. “.

As the terrorist organization Hamas has continued its war against Israel, which was first sparked by the latter’s unexpected attack on defenseless civilians on Oct. 7. There have been more instances of antisemitism in the U.S. S.

Our collective moral conscience has always been best represented by student protests for civil rights and peace. Unity. “.
