You would think that university students would be educated, if not clever, enough to not fall for the kind of intellectual-slight-of-hand the leftist-Islamic alliance depends on for it’s daily bread.
The notion of inventing some fictitious crime, or spin doctoring a real event into a fictitious crime to give license for open, overt and blatant antisemitism is clearly a rhetorical tactic and, as I say, a kind of slight of hand. But it is so effective that many Jewish people have actually been swirled into this mentality, preferring either the sanctimony-high it gives them or perhaps the conciliatory, ‘let’s hope the crocodile eats us last’ strategy, Such as it is.
Not that this should need mentioning, but the attack here, the fake notices, where not for ‘zionists’ or Israelis. But for Jews. This would seem to me to demonstrate what readers of this site likely already know.
Israel is a totem for rabid, Islamic, and to a lesser degree perhaps, leftist raw antisemitism.
Even so, at the end of the day, it spells bad news for the state of modern universities if they are so easily led by such cheap logical fallacies. Or has logic itself become passé now?

When Rayna Exelbierd returned to her dorm room at Glades Park Tower on Florida Atlantic University’s Boca Ratoncampus last Friday, she found an “eviction notice” attached the door.
Exelbierd was one of more than 200 Jewish students in three dorms who received the fake notice from the campus group Students for Justice in Palestine.
“Some students who didn’t read the document believed they were really being evicted,” said Exelbierd, a 20-year-old sophomore from Memphis, Tenn.
The flier drew attention to Students for Justice in Palestine’s claim that about 25,000 homes have been demolished since the “occupation of Palestine” by Israeli troops began in 1967.
Noor Fawzy, who the university identified as a leader of Students for Justice in Palestine, could not be reached by email.
Exelbierd said students are very concerned. “We’re taking it very seriously,” she said. “We’re considering it a hate crime. The flier promotes hate; it doesn’t promote peace. People were scared by it. People felt threatened by it.”
Exelbierd and some of the other students who found the fliers on their doors met Wednesday at the offices of Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach on the Boca Raton campus to discuss the incident.
