‘Massive drop in US Jewish college students’ support for Israel’ – American Politics

New York – Support for Israel has dropped 27% among Jewish college students in the US since 2010, a study released by Brand Israel Group at the Herzliya Conference this week revealed.

The research states that in 2010 84 percent of US Jewish college students leaned towards the Israeli side of the conflict with the Palestinians, but in 2016 these numbers dropped to only 57 percent. They believe Israel falls short with regard to values such as human rights, tolerance, and diversity.

    So the socialists running universities and colleges are teaching young Jewish students to go into the gas chambers quietly.

      As they didn’t go through (how lucky for them) what European Jewry suffered, they do not realize how manipulated they are by the left. Besides, in almost every revolution, Jewish youth was always in the forefront; as if they needed to prove something or convince others that Jews are actually good people. F….ck it!

      It should be a punishable crime. Can’t think of a single US University I would recommend to any of my students.

        Sent my kids to Bob Jones University. Never regretted it.

    In other words a massive drop in Jewishness of American students born of ‘Jewish’ (I know I am going out on a limb here) parents. I say fine and leave them on their own to face the consequences, because they will most certainly come.

      ouch! but how right you are.

        It is not surprising that today’s youth know nothing about the history of our people — it is extremely painful. It is not surprising that those who survived the Shoah (and their descendants) want nothing more than to enjoy the good life in today’s modern world. Why burden the grandchildren with painful memories?

        Ironically, it is the very success that today’s Jews have achieved that has sown the seeds of modern antisemitism. Historically this has been true, Why should it be any different now?

        For some reason as I read this thread, i was reminded of the horrendous Cossack massacres of the mid-17th century. I looked it up and found this, which might be of interest;

          So true. As as generation born just following the WWII, Jewish (and to be fair, Polish) children grew up on the horrific stories of Holocaust, German occupation and atrocities committed during those dark years. We were speared nothing. In schools, homes, JCCs, we all knew all the details even at tender ages. Some of our parents (like my Father) did not want to talk about it, but there were others, and films and books, lectures and school assemblies. I guess in turn, we did not want the next generation to grow up with this burden. Big mistake.

            I fell into the study of history quite by accident and quite late in life. My early teachers were quite uninspiring. Ironically, my bachelor’s degree is in history mainly because I could think of nothing else.

            Then, years later (at the age of 45!!!) I saw something that set me on a quest from which I have never recovered. It was a mogen dovid on a secret drawer in an old desk. I had found my question: why was this drawer a secret? was it used to hold Jewish documents such as a ketuba? was the owner outwardly a Christian but secretly a Jew? When and why did Jews become Christians? (the desk was in a little museum in San Antonio).

            Trying to find answers to those questions has taken me back to school. For the past several years, I have attended lectures at U of T and read extensively.

            I realize that as an aging senior I am supposed to occupy my remaining time with frippery such as bingo, but I just can’t seem to help myself.

            In this case, you might be interested in this. Got it from my son, who knows my passion for history. http://literatureandhistory.com/index.php/all-episodes

            Thanks. That will keep me busy for awhile.

    Of course the proposed PLO/Hamas Islamic state shows great promise of being a model of human rights, tolerance and diversity.

    For a number of Jews, liberalism is the true religion. Otherwise, why would they support the immigration of historic enemies, from muslims to Mexicans?

    How can you know while students are in fear of Antifa, BDS, SJP and the Professors?

    • Watchman

      So many nominal Jewish students have been told that it is the Zionists that are preventing peace breaking out all over the Middle East. None of their secular Progressive teachers and, later, Professors have ever told them anything but this lie, so they tend to believe it.

        I think they do what you hearted from Ben Shapiro, they know what the
        Professors want to hear and follow the line to get better results and graduate.

        • Watchman

          The problem is that so many students actually really believe it instead of just maintaining an agreeable façade in order to pass a course.

            I have no insight what’s really going on on American campus.
            I know the situation in European campus, and here
            you don’t know someone is Jewish at all.
            Brainwashing is a Problem but
            as you say, you can trick one for one time but not all for ever,
            I read it in other words from you here, I think.
