Student governors at the University of South Florida recently called for a vote to pass a “Hands Off” resolution, which would officially declare the Student Senate in opposition to Israel and condemn President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. After much controversy, an amended version passed this week.
Spencer Tate, the only Jewish senator, resigned after receiving threats for opposing the original “Hands Off” resolution.
A Facebook account allegedly linked with the Arab League sent Tate (translated), “You will die by our hands and we will take Jerusalem and fill Palestine with your impure blood. Jerusalem is for us, and death for you.”
In his resignation letter, Tate stated, “It is clear to see that being Jewish and a zionist comes with repercussions in Student government ranging from death threats to being alienated in all aspects… I have experienced so much hatred spearheaded by senate leadership in the past few months and I will be doing everything in my power to hold you accountable, it is clear to see that it’s simply not possible to do this in senate.”
If only these young people alone represented the future, then the future would be ours without trouble. Unfortunately, in reality they represent only a fraction of the future, the other fraction being represented by Generation Identity. Thus the only certainty for the future is war between these two sides, from which only one side can emerge victorious. Everything we do now must go towards preparing our side to fight and win.
