Combating Anti-Semitism on Campuses

Gil Troy has an interesting suggestion for combating anti-Semitism on North American campuses. He says Zionists should learn from the feminists, who have succeeded in creating awareness of hostile environments. In fighting sexual harassment, the feminist movement has made it clear that when the general environment in the workplace or in school is one which makes women uncomfortable, there is a problem. In the same way, supporters of Israel should emphasize that even subtle comments against Zionism and Israel are not acceptable.

Troy also suggests that students record episodes of anti-Israel rhetoric on campus and object to them on the grounds that they interfere with a good education.
