Watch a Film about Israel: Crossing the Line 2: The New Face of Anti-Semitism on Campus

I watched Crossing the Line 2: The New Face of Anti-Semitism on Campus. I chose the film for a film screening with 12 of my friends who were all mostly non Jews. I never knew how extreme the Anti-Zionist movement was in our country especially on well-educated campuses in Jewish areas. The Ohio state student government segments were extremely shocking not only to me but to my friends as well. I cannot believe the group Bobcats For Israel had been arrested for speaking their minds at an assembly, trying to advocate their support for Israel. It was also shocking as well to learn that university professors are preaching this ignorant hate to their own students during learning hours and advocating hate towards Israel in a lot of these Anti-Zionist groups. I also didn't know the specifics on how propaganda is formed against Zionism for example the 3 Ds: Delegitimization, Demonization, and Double-Standard. I never knew the BDS (Boycott Divestment Sanction) movement existed either. My hope is that one day this movement will realize that Israel is not as cruel as their leaders are making it out to be and that the support for Israel groups can demonstrate to these hate groups that all we want is peace in Israel.
