In today’s world no one is innocent, no one is neutral. A man is either with the oppressor or the oppressed. He who takes no interest in politics gives his blessing to the prevailing order…

An Apology from the SJP Vassar General Body

Up until this point, the social media platforms (tumblr and twitter) associated with SJP Vassar’s name have been managed by one person and the SJP general body was not involved in decisions made about what was being posted. We condemn any and all hate speech including any form of anti-Semitism and we are deeply sorry several offensive posts were made in SJP Vassar’s name.

We are now reevaluating how social media associated with SJP Vassar will be managed as we sincerely want these outlets to reflect our mission of social justice, opposition to all forms of racism, and solidarity with the Palestinian people.

Photos from the latest raid on Al-Quds university’s campus. The IDF continuously raids this campus to keep the students afraid and to normalize settler violence. 

Do not be fooled into believing Zionists are for an authentic academic freedom.

Here are two signs out of many as part of the hawk-ish zionist propaganda efforts in Boston. The first reads “will more land for arabs really bring peace?” The third photo has the same map asking “who is david? Who is goliath?”

The second photo shows a sticker someone put on the poster to highlight its racist logic.

Which is crazy especially in light of the persecution of our folk over at northeastern in the same damn city.

this is in Boston? Seriously? Wow….smh #nothomesick

#IsraelRemembers that it was created 66 years ago through land theft, massacre & ethnic cleansing. But it doesn’t like to admit it publicly

The article’s title is stupid — as is typical from Haaretz — but an important read nonetheless.

US drone kills six in Yemen →

fuckyeahmarxismleninism:

A drone strike in eastern Yemen killed six people on Monday, tribal sources said, in the first such raid since the army launched an offensive against jihadists last month.

The pilotless aircraft targeted a vehicle carrying “al-Qaeda members” near Al-Husun, a village in Marib province, one source alleged to AFP.

The United States is the only country operating drones over Yemen, but US officials rarely acknowledge the covert drone program.

Drone strikes in Yemen and other countries where the United States operate them frequently mistake civilians for militants, creating deep resentment among locals.

The Occupier sues the Occupied - was there ever a more absurd situation? Something vaguely insulting and derisory about that photograph too?

The Israeli police department asked the Catholic Church to remove welcome to the Pope banner displayed on the wall of the Christian Information Center, a Franciscan property, in order not offend the feelings of the Jewish groups who oppose the Pope’s visit. This Place is located in Jaffa Gate area in the Old City of occupied Jerusalem, which is in the Christian Quarter. Welcome to the only democracy in the Middle East! Palestinian Christians

An Apology

no-good-nik:

sjpvassar:

Hey all,

We want to make it excruciatingly clear that we are sorry to anyone we offended because we did not vet the original posters of some of the content we reblogged close enough this past week, and only focused on the content. We understand that the sources, no matter the content, can be triggering to many in our audience. We will definitely do better, as that is what y’all deserve. We have removed the posts, and will do our best not to make a similar mistake!

best,

SJPvc


So the content that has the old antisemitic ZOG canard that Jews run worldwide conspiracies that secretly control technology and politics was carefully vetted?

GOOD TO KNOW

Clearly your “tell us where we were antisemitic!” is a bullshit false flag, because it isn’t that you REBLOGGED from neo-nazis, its that your theories, politics, and world-view ALIGNS with people like white supremacists and neo-nazis in the first place.

But oh yeah, that’s just “zionist speak” isn’t it?

I absolutely adore gentiles’ inability to examine the actual antisemitism of their thinking. They’ll reduce the call-outs to whatever is easiest to wave away, like it’s simply an issue of reblogging .

They won’t say “we’re sorry for our hurtful antisemitism” but “we’re sorry to those offended”. If you want to issue a good apology, BE SPECIFIC. OWN UP TO IT. 

"Do our best" clearly means nothing here. "Do our best" means we’ll see the same shit next month and you’ll issue the same sheepish apology. 

You agree with Nazis. You think some of their reasoning is sound. I will never feel safe around you. 

sigh, please don’t make us tokenize the jewish members of our organization. We have many jewish students in our ranks, so please refrain from assuming we are all gentiles.

Please don’t make the jump from not looking at the source of a tumblr blog post to agreeing with nazis. These are inflammatory internet jumps in logic that make for a more sensationalized affair. In reality it was an oversight that we are working on.

We can only do our best, and if that isn’t good enough for you, the unfollow button is that gray box at the top right of our blog.
