A massive new anti-Israel tent city took over Columbia University on Sunday, just days after an NYPD raid cleared another intrusive encampment there and cuffed more than 100 protesters. At least 30 tents were sprawled across the Manhattan Ivy League school’s West Lawn along with piles of food and supplies as embattled university officials struggled to contain the growing crisis. The upheaval and threats to Jewish students have become so intolerable that a prominent rabbi at the prestigious school urged them Sunday to stay home — and university officials told them they could take classes online. “We are looking for our demands, and we are going to continue that,”

Columbia's administration cannot bring itself to act against Leftist demonstrations. They have been coddling them for decades after all.

Great! A 'Palestinian' refugee camp in NYC. They better shut it down because they won't leave on their own. How old are the PLO camps in the Middle East?

Ending a few federal research grants or other federal money to Columbia and a few of the other universities where terrorist protesters are allowed free run would end these protests really fast. Nothing like losing some federal money to change a universities mind about something.

Do not expect any meaningful or effective solutions from the Biden administration because they cannot afford to lose the Muslim vote. So it is hands off from them. Likewise Columbia University is so entrenched in their own leftist narrative that they will be feckless. It is difficult to walk a line between these protests and their Jewish students. So, therefore, they will be useless to deal with this problem. New York State will not weigh in any way as they are feckless and afraid. These protestors know this. They are not stupid but they are stubborn bullies who as Poster #6 says will not leave on their own. They would love nothing more than to set up a permanent camp in this country. They want to be a thorn in our sides. It is what they do. What must be done is to get rid of this camp as soon as possible. When they start putting up any kind of a structure, that automatically moves this from protests to an unlawful trespass. Then the arrests come. Book them. Get their identities on record and trespass them from ever coming back on campus. Those who are students are expelled. The rest are arrested and held without bond for a month. Unlawful? Tell that to the J6 political prisoners. Democrats have already set the precedent. Make it clear protests are to be peaceful, lawful, and they are not opportunities to set up tent cities on any property, private or public. Your are going to need a real leader to pull this off and we don’t have one that has the desire to buck this group of people so don’t expect anything more than indulgence by Biden’s regime and media coverage fawning over the right of the students to protest. However, this has gone beyond any definition of protest. This is an unlawful trespass by lawless bullies who believe they have the right to act out in any way without any pushback. It is outrageous and they came to this country for this very reason. They want to create chaos and most of all they want to spread anti-semitism and the lie that Palestine is even a state. They were offered a solution which they did not deserve and turned down many times. This tells me they want to use this issue for political purposes just as democrats use abortion. They have no desire to live in peace with Israel if they were to be given everything they want. Ultimately, they want Israel to cease to exist and that is not going to happen. This is a religious war that will not end. It can only be contained and managed. While Israel would and could live in peace with them. These Muslims would rather die, live in abject property and wage war for the next thousand years instead of giving their children a future worth living. You cannot reason with a religious zealot and all this goes directly back to the command in their holy book to kill the Jew.

New York University students are jumping on the anti-Israel tent camp band wagon. The downtown Manhattan university has become the latest pricey college to see students set up encampments on campus as they protest Israel and the war in the Gaza Strip. The protesters made camp across NYU’s Stern School of Business in Manhattan on Monday morning as they called on the school to divest from the Jewish State and push for an end to its campaign across the Palestinian enclave. The students were seen waving Palestinian flags on the streets and sidewalks, with others hanging up signs to “Honor the Martyrs of Palestine.”

They were slapped with trespassing summons — and will be referred for Yale disciplinary action, which may include suspensions, the rep added.

With Israel facing overwhelming pressure from President Biden, its Friday retaliation against Iran was an exercise in minimalism. Jerusalem did cross one important Iranian red line, at whose mere mention the Biden administration has quailed. Bibi Netanyahu’s war cabinet authorized an overt attack against a target on the soil of Iran, which Israel had previously attacked only covertly. Point therefore made, albeit one that should have made many years ago. Beyond that, there is little to celebrate. Jerusalem’s riposte to Tehran’s massive April 13-14 missile-and-drone attack on Israel has solved nothing else substantive. Iran continues closing its “ring of fire” around Israel, which will likely now refocus on finishing Hamas.

The high electricity consumption of a home, its cardboard-covered windows and odor of marijuana drew law enforcement’s attention to an illicit grow operation off the beaten path in rural Maine. The bust of the home with a hidden grow operation and seizure of nearly 40 pounds (18 kilograms) of processed marijuana marked the latest example of what authorities describe as a yearslong trend of foreign nationals to exploit U.S. state laws that have legalized cannabis for recreational or medical use to produce marijuana for the illicit markets in the U.S.

Nicole Mitchell, a 49-year-old first-term Democrat who reps the Twin Cities suburbs of Woodbury and Maplewood, was taken into custody after a homeowner called police in Detroit Lakes — 220 miles to the northwest — to report an intruder, according to local reports. Mitchell, a former TV and radio meteorologist and a commander in the Air National Guard, was booked into the Becker County Jail, where she remained as of Monday afternoon, according to online records.

A recent video shows a disabled girl confined to a wheelchair being bullied at her middle school. She’s taunted, struck, and tossed around. Those watching and videotaping giggle hysterically. It’s horrible. It also shows sociopathic behavior that is increasingly normalized in America, especially among blacks. This isn’t because blacks are inherently sociopaths. It’s because the Democrat party has deliberately stolen from them the societal institutions that create decency. Note: I am not saying that blacks are inherently criminal, sociopathic, stupid, or whatever other words a Democrat would put into my mouth. To say so—to say that negative traits, values, and behaviors are tied to skin color—would be deeply evil and racist.

If you missed it, you had to wait a year until it was rebroadcast as there was no video on demand as there is today. It was a fun movie, featuring sing-a-long music, romance, mischief, and a realistic view of jackbooted Nazis destroying a beautiful country. There was no same sex marriage, no transgenders, no mention of global warming, diversity, wokeness, or any other message permeating current movies and television shows.
