Slick video production over at You tube to influence kids to be anti-Israel – “clever, contemporary, hip, on the money, and aimed at youth” – their words not mine (hat tip Allyson Taylor)

Much thanks to the tenacious Allyson Taylor for furnishing me with a list of the top professors who are working on divestment in their Universities and working together. She wrote:

The UCLA Daily Bruin had an article yesterday about Professors wanting to follow Hampshire University in the divestment from Israel. I got a list of all the groups and the leaders and am sharing it with all the organizations so we can work together to fight this action.

This is is enormous. Let’s take on the most important Universities, like U Penn Wharton, UCLA, and others, and contact the Chancellors and ask them to put a stop to the divestment talks BEFORE the SJP and others get to them. This is a move that needs to be proactive.

This is pre-war Germany.

The planner Sondra Hale said, “When we get a bit better organized, we will be calling on this group of now over 200 for various actions, planning, etc. We are not adding any more California people to our Organizing Committee just now, but will keep you in mind. Thanks again for helping.”

This list could choke a horse.

Any readers alumni? Any readers donors? Know any donors? We have to nip this Jew hate in the bud. Here is the divestment endorsement site
