“Battle Ground York University” – ‘Blazing Cat Fur’ Blog

Battle Ground York U  >


“Five pro-Israel students, including Lax and Aharon, and five anti-Zionist students addressed the YFS before the vote. Only one board member – Ruth Johnson, director of Winters College – attempted to inject some measure of fairness into the motion.

The meeting was “of interest to me because the entire student body needs to be represented and I didn’t feel like that was happening,” said Johnson. “Taking a stance on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict to that degree and demonizing Israel wasn’t something that was conducive to the unity of our student body.”

It was only by chance that the pro-Israel side found out about the meeting. Johnson said she wasn’t informed of the meeting by YFS, either.”
