Guest Column by Ariela Stein | Penn Students for Justice in Palestine touts myth of apartheid during Passover
It does not go unnoticed that Penn Students for Justice in Palestine's event titled “Israeli Apartheid Week” was planned over the holiday of Passover, when many Jewish students are off campus or unable to mobilize an effective response due to religious obligations. However, this is not exclusive to Penn SJP. Last year, before the first day of Passover, members of Tufts University's SJP brought forth a resolution to the school senate, calling for an academic and economic boycott of Israeli products and institutions. This excluded pro-Israel voices who could not attend the session in order to get home in time for their Passover seders.
