Action Taken on College Campus but Too Little Too Late

Columbia University is suspending the far-left groups Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) as official student groups through the end of the fall term, it announced on Friday, saying they had violated university policies.

The university said it made the decision after the groups “repeatedly violated University policies related to holding campus events, culminating in an unauthorized event Thursday afternoon that proceeded despite warnings and included threatening rhetoric and intimidation.” It marks the second university to take action against SJP in recent days, with Brandeis University banning the group this week for its statements supporting Hamas.

The Fox News article notes that these hate groups were suspended because they did not apply for event permits 10 days in advance. They should have been kicked off campus years ago for the violent hatred and goal of wiping Jews off the map in the first place. If the leadership of Columbia University cannot distinguish between pure evil, hate and death as a goal versus free speech, then it’s time to remove them from their cushy positions. Shame on all of them.
