In a deeply disturbing trend, university administrators across America are bowing to the demands of pro-Hamas student groups, striking deals that undermine Jewish students and fuel the flames of antisemitism on campus.

At the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM), Chancellor Mark Mone issued a groveling apology to the Jewish community after reaching an agreement with the radical Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) group. The deal, which ended an illegal SJP “Gaza encampment,” required UWM to issue a statement calling for a ceasefire in Israel’s defensive war against Hamas and to consider an academic boycott of Israel.

“It is clear to me that UWM should not have weighed in on deeply complex geopolitical and historical issues,” Mone said in a statement on Wednesday. “And for that, I apologize. I acknowledge that it is an increasingly difficult time for many Jewish students at UWM and across America.”

Sadly, UWM is not alone in its cowardly appeasement of anti-Israel extremists. Wesleyan University has agreed to create scholarships for “displaced” Palestinian students and form a working group to explore an academic boycott of Israel. Northwestern University will establish a segregated dormitory for Muslim students, while Brown University plans to hold a vote on divesting from companies linked to Israel.
