Israeli Holocaust museum chairman condemns Ivy League schools for widespread antisemitism on campuses

The chairman of the Yad Vashem World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem is speaking out about the surge in antisemitism and anti-Zionism in the U.S. and around the world, placing blame on the inaction of Ivy League colleges and other institutions of higher learning.

Yad Vashem Chairman Dani Dayan, who recently met with presidents, provosts, and deans from prestigious East Coast colleges including Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, New York University, and Queens College, is concerned about the sharp rise in incidents of antisemitism and the spread of inaccurate theories about Israel on these campuses.

“In Ivy League colleges across the U.S., there are academics in the humanities and social sciences building pseudo-academic, pseudo-scientific theories justifying the elimination of the Jewish state,” Dayan told Fox News Digital. “Violent demonstrations and calls for a global Intifada are extremely disturbing, but they are just a symptom of a larger issue.”

He added, “With academic buzzwords about ‘ethnic-nationalistic,’ ‘settler colonial,’ ‘colonization of Palestine,’ and ‘apartheid,’ they are slowly yet constantly constructing a pseudo-scientific truth, first demonizing Israel and then actively advocating for its elimination, which is terrible.”

Dayan emphasized that calling for the elimination of the world’s only Jewish state is “a terribly antisemitic thing to do.”
