Does this violate the Establishment Clause?

  1. Yes

  2. No

  3. No, and all government-recognized religious groups should be protected in the same way

  4. It may, but I would make an exception for the Jews, given the circumstances.

    Hasbara sessions?

    Pity the code for 'don't criticise Israel' got included in an order 'protecting' a religion. The wording of the order makes that quite clear.

    The object of the government’s response is the increased campus debate about Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, a movement advocating economic measures opposing Israel’s occupation of the West Bank. Whatever its intent, B.D.S. has helped to create a hostile environment for Jewish students, most of whom support Israel. At Emory University, for example, students with mezuzot on their door posts were served with mock eviction notices.

    Is the order referring anti-semitism of Jewish people, to Judaism or both. I never saw any reference to religion, but to "....Jewish community institutions and religious facilities....."
    I am not a Jew but if I was, anyone displaying anti-semitism, depending on the severity, would be searching for either a dentist, a doctor or an undertaker.

    The term antisemitism was coined 150-years ago by Germans specifically to refer to hatred of Jews.

    If that weren't the case, this picture could never have been taken.
