After an intense past two weeks of AS meetings in regard to delegitimizing Israel and its right to exist, the pro-Israel community at UCSD is facing yet another attempt to do the same. Apartheid week at UCSD is just another means by which to criticize Israel by singling it out for its alleged human rights violations.
So, in the next week when you are on Library Walk, notice the 8 foot tall wall. Notice that AS allocated thousands of dollars to the building of this wall. Notice that your student fees (or your predecessors’ fees) ACTUALLY went to building this piece of pure hatred.
In the next week, don’t feel alienated if you support Israel’s right to exist. Tritons for Israel and the greater pro-Israel community here at UCSD will be on Library Walk for most of the week offering emotional support to those affected by what the wall stands for.
Please do not be shy by showing that you are pro-Israel and are not willing to stand idly by as Israel stands up for peace, democracy, and equality – the only country to do so in the Middle East.
Am Yisrael Chai!
