Jewish students at Harvard University received mock eviction notices on their dormitory doors as part of an anti-Israel campaign organized by the Harvard College Palestine Solidarity Committee.The vicious irony, of course, is that the only country that has not practiced ethnic cleansing in that part of the world is Israel itself.
The flyers, which informed the students that their rooms “were scheduled for demolition in the next three days,” were meant to invoke the “unlawful displacement of Palestinians from their homeland at the hands of the Israeli government,” the Harvard Crimson reported.
The notices were orchestrated as part of “Israeli Apartheid Week,” which is an annual series of anti-Israel lectures, events and protests that is aligned with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign.
Jews were ethnically cleansed from every Arab country in the middle of the twentieth century. The Jews were driven from their homes and their property stolen throughout the region. There are virtually zero Jews left in Arab lands, yet Arabs make up about twenty percent of the Israeli population.
If some percentage of Arabs were driven from their homes in the '48 War then one might conclude that seeking to kill your neighbors is not exactly the best way to guarantee one's own well-being.
The Jews have rights to self-defense and we will damn well exercise those rights if we need to.
