USA - New report finds ‘disturbing’ levels of antisemitic activity at the University of Illinois Chicago

Last week, the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) welcomed students back to campus. But how welcome can the university’s Jewish population feel sharing a campus with a student group whose members have a long history of horrific antisemitic social media posts?

The group, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), runs a very active chapter at UIC. Even with the COVID-related shutdown of in-person learning in the past academic year, SJP made great headway in its campaign to demonize Jewish students.

A new report released by the anti-hate watchdog group Canary Mission found “disturbing” levels of antisemitic activity by this group going as far back as 2015.

This report exposes the actions of 32 SJP UIC activists whose individual profile links can be found in the report.
