Jewish students at the prestigious Harvard University received eviction notices from anti Israeli groups, according to press reports in the United States.

In the latest attempt at Harvard University to promote the delegitimization of the State of Israel, the Jewish students in the dorms of freshman and senior classes received false eviction notices as part of the Israeli Apartheid Week, which is being organized on college campuses and universities worldwide.

The campaign, organized by the Harvard Palestine Solidarity Committee, circulated notices earlier this month saying: “We regret to inform you that your suite is scheduled for demolition in the next three days,” a reference to the group’s views with Israel’s treatment of the Palestinian population.

The Anti-Defamation League or ADL expressed outrage at the most recent attempts to attack Jews at the prestigious college by demonizing Jews and the State of Israel, saying: “This tactic is designed to silence and intimidate the pro-Israel advocates at Harvard and other schools across the country.”

“Freedom of expression has a place on campus, but outright hate against Jewish students in the dormitories of Harvard to create tension, isolate students and foster hostility is unacceptable,” Robert Trestan of the ADL, said.
