Several universities are under fire for hosting an anti-Israel activist on their campuses. Linda Sarsour, who is accused of Jew-hatred that was seen during her work on the Women’s March, was recently invited to speak at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill’s Minority Health Conference.
Her speech was intended to discuss “why advocacy is important, her path as an advocate, the spectrum of advocacy and application to the field of public health.” However, The College Fix reports Sarsour took the time to focus more on criticizing Israel than actual health.
During her speech, Sarsour pointed out that she is a supporter of the “boycott, divestment and sanctions” movement on Israel. BDS seeks to penalize Israel and impose harsh economic restrictions to punish Israel for its disagreements with the Palestinians.
The appearance caused multiple groups to address their school officials, and some students were even planning to protest.
This is not the first time Sarsour is in the spotlight for anti-Semitic beliefs. Last year, Sarsour and other Women’s March leaders, were accused of anti-Semitism, causing multiple sponsors to pull their support from the march.
Sarsour is slated to speak at New York University next month. The speech is supposed to be focused on “a lecture on migration, refugees, and the politics of sanctuary.”
