Israel is often misrepresented at Penn. Whether through the placement of black flags on College Green or the construction of an “apartheid wall” in front of Van Pelt Library, Israel is depicted as an abominable tyrant, and the substantive facts of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are deemed insignificant.

Portraying Israel’s geopolitical circumstances as simple or the conflict as one-sided is a disservice to the well-educated Penn community.
