Warning: Jewish Fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi Issues Security Alert to All 185 Chapters Nationwide

Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi has issued a security alert, warning all campus chapters to be watchful for “rising anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity” here in the US. Incidents have been steadily increasing here in the United States even as the attacks in Israel grow ever deadlier. In the last month, scores have been injured and at least 8 killed in Israel by Palestinian Jihadists. A Third Intifada is in process in Israel. I have noticed on postings I do on Israel, that the hate mail is off the charts. God speed our Jewish friends. Stay safe out there.

Forward.com reported:

The Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi issued a warning about “rising anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity” to its 185 chapters on U.S. college campuses.

The AEPi warning, sent Thursday, was prompted by the surge of violence in Israel. Several prominent anti-Semitic incidents took place on college campuses after the Gaza war in 2014, and the AEPi executive director, Andrew Borans, said he fears the pattern could repeat itself in the wake of daily violent attacks between Palestinians and Israelis in recent weeks.

“Unfortunately, we’ve already seen a number of incidences of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish rhetoric and violence on campuses this fall,” Borans said. “Our brothers are prominent leaders in their campus Jewish communities and are often among the most active pro-Israel advocates around. … With violence against Israel once more on the rise, we are well-aware that such heinous actions often make their ways to our college campuses next.

“We are also, obviously, very concerned for our brothers in Israel,” he added.

The fraternity’s statement said that they had contracted with an unnamed global security firm in 2014 to council chapters on how to manage and deter security threats. So, they are not unprepared. Several AEPi houses were vandalized with swastika graffiti in the year after last summer’s war in Gaza, including at Emory University, the University of California, Davis, and Vanderbilt University. Support for Israel and Jewish identity on college campuses has been a contested topic in the year since the Gaza conflict. In March, UCLA made headlines when a student running for a student government position was asked by another student: “Given that you are a Jewish student and very active in the Jewish community, how do you see yourself being able to maintain an unbiased view?” Obama has fostered anti-Semitism here in the states. And now you see racial radicals and Islamists spewing hatred here every time they get the chance. All of us should be watchful… Jews and Christians alike. These are dangerous times here in the US and it will get worse.
