Pro-Israel students erected panels celebrating the Jewish state next to pro-Palestinian activists’ “apartheid wall.”
A newly approved British anti-Semitism law may pose legal hurdles for Israel Apartheid Week events on university campuses in the United Kingdom. This week, one university canceled a speech critical of Israel and other campuses are considering nixing events to avoid running afoul of the new law, according to the Jewish Chronicle.
