Anti-Israel group distributes ‘eviction’ notices at NYU

(JNS.org) The anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) distributed mock eviction to up to 2,000 students at New York University, claiming its notices mimic those that the Israel Defense Forces hands out in advance of home evictions of Palestinians. “We regret to inform you that your suite is scheduled for demolition in three days,” read the SJP notices, the New York Daily News reported. “If you do not vacate the premise by midnight on 25 April, 2014, we reserve the right to destroy all remaining belongings,” the notices added. “Charges for demolition will be applied to your student accounts.”

The Anti-Defamation League said the notices “inaccurately alleged that Palestinians in the West Bank are evicted from their homes ‘for no other reason than their ethnicity’ when in fact the Israel Defense Forces conduct evictions when there are serious security concerns and when homes are built illegally.”
