Brandeis Anti-Israel Activists Get $10K to Reach Out to Hamas Terror School

A feminist ex-Muslim critic of Islam is not welcome at Brandeis University. But Anti-Israel activists engaging in pro-terrorist activism get cash support.
If you donate to Brandeis, you might as well make the check out directly to Hamas.
Two student leaders of J Street at Brandeis University who recently came under fire for heckling an Israeli soldier have been selected to help repair the school’s relationship with the Palestinian Al Quds University, which has hosted several anti-Israel terror rallies on its campus.
Brandeis was forced to sever its long-term partnership with Al Quds after it hosted a military rally last year that featured masked men performing the traditional Nazi salute. A second Hamas rally was held in late March.
The Al Quds dialogue initiative comes at a critical time for Brandeis, which is facing a fierce backlash for rescinding an honorary degree from the Islamic human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
The J Street leaders were awarded the $10,000 as part of the Davis Projects for Peace program, which encourages students to “design grassroots projects for peace.”
Philip and Stewart wrote in their grant proposal that they are seeking to “create a framework for long-term student dialogue between Brandeis University and Al Quds University.”
“It bothers me very much that the school I am attending has a partnership with a school that inherently promotes death to Jews,” Brandeis student Eve Herman told the Washington Free Beacon at the time.
J Street leaders Philip and Stewart say that the Nazi rally inspired them to pursue the new partnership, which will allow a delegation of Brandeis students to spend a week at Al Quds.
Brandeis University emailed the Free Beacon following the publication of this article to distance itself from the Davis Projects and the J Street U students’ project.
The Davis Projects for Peace program is advertised and hosted on Brandeis’s College of Arts and Sciences website. Brandeis is described as one of the David Projects’ “partner institutions.”
So once again Brandeis is conveniently disavowing responsibility while J Street keeps turning its claim that it’s Pro-Israel into a punchline for an explosive joke.
