An Anti-Israel activist caused a major disturbance after launching into an expletive-ridden tirade at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
As students voted in favour of a campus-wide boycott against the Jewish state, ‘pro-Palestinian’ activists showed their true colours, verbally abusing and gesticulating wildly at a pro-Israel speaker in the room.
“Get the f**k off our campus now!” her screamed, repeating, “Get off the f***ing campus!”
“You’re f**king Zionists, you’re f**king pr*cks,” he shouted, as students crassly pounded the tables and cheered. “Get off my campus now. I’ve been in this town for 10 years, get the f**k off our campus now!”
The main focus on the video is reported to be Joe Loughnane, who describes himself on Twitter as a “Gramscian Socialist from Galway” and runs a blog called “Counter Hegemonic Perusals”.
Another student shouted, “Fascist, racist scum,” while another remarked immediately afterwards, “And proud of it!”
The students then veered towards anti-Semitism, shouting, “We don’t want your Israeli money here,” in a nod to a long-held anti-Semitic view that Jewish people are all wealthy, and seek to exert influence globally. While the students didn’t mention the word “Jews” or “Jewish”, it can be argued that using the term “Israeli money” is a nod towards the Jewish nature of the State of Israel.
The EUMC’s Working Definition on Anti-Semitism states that amongst other things, anti-Semitism can be defined as: “Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions”.
