This article is a classic example of the divestment in Israel that is being campaigned on university campuses all over America. Rutgers University is just one of them. Their claims of Israel's apartheid, racism, and denial of human rights are completely incorrect. There is no evidence or support in the article at all-just accusatory assumptions. The problem is that people who don't know much about Israel will believe this article completely. Israel is compared to the apartheid in South Africa in the article, which is obviously a false statement. It is scary to think of the consequences in Israel if all American universities pursued and succeeded in divestment of Israel. What else could it lead to? In addition to even more Palestinian support in American youth, the rest of the country would recognize the divestment as credible and correct. We have to stop the spreading of this harmful action against Israel before it becomes too popular!
