Jewish college students across the nation have reported feeling targeted and fearful, as incidents of anti-semitic violence are increasingly occurring on university campuses around the country.

“So we’ve had a plethora of incidents happen at UC Berkeley, everything from two physical assaults of students getting physically hurt on campus. We’ve had professors offering bonus and extra credit to students for attending pro-Hamas rallies,” UC Berkeley student Danielle Sobkin stated.

“But the most concerning is Jewish student leaders getting an email from administration telling us to avoid certain parts of campus, to avoid showing our faces, to avoid filming these incidents and at these events, due to a fear of our safety,” she added.

“So what does it mean when administrators are telling me to not be a target, which is leading me to believe that in order to be safe on campus at UC Berkeley, I need to hide my Jewish identity,” she added.

Over 100 college campuses had student groups partake in a walkout supporting Gaza and criticizing U.S. aid to Israel this week, including George Washington University, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, and MIT, among others.

“Going into UC Berkeley, I was really hopeful of four years of education and learning and being alongside my peers. And now I’m looking at peers that are supporting terrorists, that are supporting violence, that are supporting innocent Israelis getting murdered,” Sobkin pressed.

“There have been multiple anti-Israel rallies at NYU where I’ve heard students chanting ‘Death to Jews,’ chanting ‘death’ to anybody that supports the Zionist state,” recalled NYU student Allison Lax.

“I mean, these are horrific things to say at a so-called peaceful protest. I’ve heard students chant, ‘globalize the intifada,’ just horrific things in classrooms.”

“Professors are spewing absolute misinformation. And it’s just it’s a horrible situation.” (Trending: Judge Declines To Recuse From Trump 2024 Ballot Case)

“People know who I am. I get death threats daily on Instagram. It’s very scary. In class, I sit next to my peers who cheer on Hamas and support the murder of over 1,400 innocent Israelis,” she added.

“It’s really horrible. And I don’t think I’m ever going to feel safe again on campus.”

“Glory to Our Martyrs,” read a message on the side of George Washington University’s library.

“Students sat in front of the library and projected hateful messages, including Glory to our Martyrs and Free Palestine from the river to the sea. And GWU you have Palestinian blood on your hands onto the library, which, mind you the Gelman library. they’re Jewish. So it was definitely heavily anti-Semitic,” GWU student Sabrina Soffer stated.

“Since the moment I got to GW, even just saying that my family was from Israel really granted me a lot of hostility on campus from a variety of students. I didn’t understand this at first, but over time I came to understand this whole radicalized ideology and a lot of the propaganda that’s being perpetuated in the classroom, it made me feel antagonized, not necessarily unsafe,” she added.

“But now what I’m seeing on this campus where students are shouting this from the rooftops and thinking that they’re moral, it’s pure idiocy and it’s really concerning. And no, I do not feel safe on my campus. Students know who I am. I’ve been a public face of this for a long time… So long as this institutional damage isn’t changed, I will not feel safe on campus.”

Sobkin also stated feeling “unsafe every single day going on campus” at UC Berkeley.

“I feel unsafe sitting in classes next to peers that are supporting these terrible acts and listening to professors that are also supporting this. So unless this institutional damage is adjusted and changed, no, I will not feel safe at UC Berkeley,” she stated.
