The Campus Crisis & the JPC’s Philly Event on Wednesday

Jonathan Schanzer

Asaf Romirowsky writes a great piece in the Philadelphia Jewish Exponent about anti-Semitism on college campuses. He also mentions the JPC’s event in Philadelphia this Wednesday. Here’s a bit:

…pro-Israel students confront a demoralizing challenge on campus defending Israel’s right to exist as a democratic Jewish state… with the release of The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy by John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt… contend that that there are no genuine or compelling motives for America’s support for Israel…

…to defuse this, the Jewish Policy Center has organized a panel of experts — including Daniel Pipes, Cliff May and David Horowitz, and moderated by radio commentator Michael Medved… The event will take place at 7 p.m.Wednesday, Sept. 19, at Temple Beth Hillel/Beth El in Wynnewood.

…Dick Fox, chairman of the Jewish Policy Center, stated that the center “has been addressing the problem of radical Islam and anti-Semitism on campus for several years… Now, it has become a full-blown crisis.”
