Are you in the New York/New Jersey area? Get to Rutgers tonight. Truth-loving and freedom-fighting students at Rutgers need you. I received this from one of the students who is leading the resistance to these vile lies and propaganda events:
In the midst of a year full of virulent anti-Israel campus events, this Saturday Rutgers University may witness the most objectionable event yet. Saturday night January 29, in the Douglass Campus Center, a Rutgers student group, BAKA, will host an event titled “Never Again for Anyone” in collaboration with American Muslims for Palestine, The International Anti-Zionist Jewish Network, and The Middle East Children's Alliance. This program is designed to coincide with the United Nations’ sanctioned International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day created to remember and honor the victims of the Holocaust. Instead, the focus will be on “the on-going ethnic cleansing of Palestine,” comparing Israel to Nazi Germany.
By invoking the Nazi genocide, this event both defames the Jewish state and trivializes the systematic murder of 11 million people in the Holocaust, including six million Jews. While Rutgers Hillel respects the right to free speech, the comparison of Israeli acts of self defense to the gas chambers of Auschwitz is morally repulsive and has no place on the campus of our State University. Therefore a counter-protest and organized walk-out of the event has been planned. We invite you to join us.
This protest will be peaceful and civil. We respectfully request that there be absolutely no verbal or physical altercations of any kind. Any attempted provocation by attendees of “Never Again For Anyone” must be ignored. Those who cannot respect these guidelines are asked not to participate in our protest.
The protest will be from 6 p.m. in the lobby of the Douglass Campus Center, 100 George St., New Brunswick. Event parking is available behind the Campus Center. People are encouraged to bring respectful signs and Israeli flags. Those who wish to participate formally in the walk-out should contact Aaron Marcus at Amarcus@eden.rutgers.edu
