Caroline Glick makes good suggestions for Jewish student groups contending with campus anti-Semites:
Educational efforts are of little value in contending with thugs. But this doesn’t mean that there is nothing to be done. Groups like Block the Boat for Gaza, Students for Justice in Palestine, Jewish Voices for Peace, Adalah, the Arab Resource and Organizing Center and Direct Action for Palestine need to be investigated.
Where does their money come from? Who are their leaders? What are their ties to terrorist groups? What are their ties to organized labor? What are their ties to politicians? What is their tax status and what do their tax returns say? If members of various groups are intimidating Jewish students then there should be restraining orders against them. Criminal complaints should be filed against them. Their tax-exempt status should be challenged.
Jewish students should be demanding that Students for Justice in Palestine be expelled from their campuses along with other hate groups, like Jewish Voices for Peace. Jewish alumni should be organizing to withhold all donations from universities that permit anti-Semitic groups to operate on campus. And Jewish lawyers should be filing lawsuits against universities and other institutions that enable the operation of anti-Semitic groups on their premises.
She makes similar points regarding how Jewish organizations should respond to anti-Semitic incitement in the larger society.
A problem is that, with notable exceptions (e.g., the Zionist Organization of America, responding to the Met’s production of Klinghoffer), Jewish organizations and individual Jews have handicapped themselves by throwing in their political lot with the Democratic Party. Most of the anti-Semites are leftists and members of Democratic Party constituencies. The Democrats resolve the conflict by catering to the anti-Semites since the Jews, like the blacks, have needlessly limited their own options so that the Democrats have little fear of paying a political price if they go against Jewish interests.
The major Jewish organizations should become functionally nonpartisan, should support candidates from both parties who support Jewish interests, and should work against those candidates, regardless of party affiliation, who fail do do so. This is how the National Rifle Association operates and is why the NRA is politically successful. The Jewish organizations should also go full Alinsky against Jew haters. The ZOA is doing this in a mild way by naming and shaming Jewish contributors to the Met. These tactics work.
