San Francisco State University Sued for Coddling Anti-Semitism

(JWD) In a long overdue development, a major university has finally been sued for allowing antisemitism to thrive on campus.

The Jerusalem Post reports that the suit, brought by the Lawfare Project and Winston & Stawn LLP, charges that "SFSU has a long and extensive history of cultivating anti-Semitism and overt discrimination against Jewish students," as a result of which, Jewish students fear wearing "Stars of David or yarmulkes on campus."

It further states that "SFSU and its administrators have knowingly fostered this discrimination… which has been marked by violent threats to the safety of Jewish students on campus."

The suit cites an incident in which Leftist antisemites disrupted a speech by Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, in which the Jewish students were
subjected to genocidal and offensive chants and expletives by a raging mob that used bullhorns to intimidate and drown out the Mayor's speech and physically threaten and intimidate members of the mostly-Jewish audience.
In response, states the suit, campus police, administrators, and other officials did nothing.
No actions were ever taken by SFSU against the disruptive students, no disciplinary charges were ever filed, and no sanctions were ever imposed against the groups or students responsible for committing these acknowledged violations.
All of this, the suit alleges, violates Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which protects individuals and groups from such discrimination.
