UCBerkeley Takes Action on Course Accused of Anti-Semitic Views

Published on 18 Jul 2019 / In News & Politics

The University of California at Berkeley has suspended a course amid accusations it shared anti-Semitic viewpoints and was designed to indoctrinate students against Israel.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports Berkeley suspended “Palestine: A Settler Colonial Analysis” on Tuesday. The newspaper reports a syllabus for the one-credit course taught by an undergraduate student says it examines the history of the Palestinian territories “through the lens of settler colonialism.”
The suspension came on the same day that 43 Jewish, civil rights and education advocacy groups sent a letter raising concerns about the course. The letter says the class encourages students to accept the idea “that Israel is an illegitimate settler colonial state” and that course readings have “a blatantly anti-Israel bias.”
