Is it because Luciana Berger, 23 resigned her position as the anti-racism co-ordinator at the National Union of Students? Is it because she did so in protest at the union leadership “turning a blind eye” to anti-Semitism? Is it because she’s been spat on at meetings dealing with the Israel/Palestine issue? Is it because she’s had to witness films being played on campus that justified Arab terrorism against Israeli civilians, or that she had to hear of speakers state that burning down a synagogue is a rational act? All while the National Union of Students stood idly by?
Yes, yes. Anti-Semitism disguised as anti-Israel rhetoric and activity is a bad, bad thing. No doubt. But do you think that Semitic temptress is snogging the PM’s son? The British really are total twits sometimes. Like, for real. Not just on Monty Python.
Luciana’s reasons for her resignation, in her own words, are a sobering must read for any current student activist or anyone concerned with Jewish campus activism. Coming soon to a school near you?
