StandWithUs Applauds Overwhelming Rejection of BDS at the Ohio State University, December 5, 2018



(Columbus, Ohio, December 5, 2018) -- StandWithUs applauds the rejection of a discriminatory BDS resolution by the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) at the Ohio State University (OSU). The motion failed by a vote of 7 in favor, 3 abstaining, and 30 against.

“We are proud of students who stood up to this campaign of hate and defeated a bigoted resolution full of misleading claims,” said StandWithUs CEO Roz Rothstein. “BDS only serves to fuel the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and deepen divisions between students on campus.”

“It is disturbing that the International Socialist Organization -- an off campus group --  was heavily involved in this campaign,” said Ron Krudo, Executive Director of Campus Affairs at StandWithUs. “The ISO has promoted 'unconditional support' for Hamas and denied that anti-Semitism is a problem in the British Labour Party. It's encouraging that the student government rejected their hateful agenda.”

StandWithUs applauds OSU Hillel and Buckeyes for Israel for their dedication and courage in standing up for their community on campus. We will continue to work with ICC, Hillel International, and all our partners to help students overcome hate and tell Israel's story on campus.
