As UC Riverside alum Æ03, I am deeply embarrassed by the
undergraduate students who supported the divestiture of
Israel. Last year the student government of Riverside
approved a resolution supporting divestiture and now the
University of California Student Association did the same
in early February.
The hostile attitudes towards Israel only lead to
increasing animus against the Jewish people who are on the
campuses of the UC system.
Our campuses should no longer be a proxy venue for the Middle Eastconflict.
Nothing is going to change locally when it comes to worldwide affairs.
Either lobby your congressional representatives or move
there if you want change to happen either way.
Unless UC students gain some common sense, I implore the
students to reconsider their rash opinions on divestiture.
Until then, I hope conservative alumni and friends of
Israel divest from the UC system until things change
