College Assault Victim Charges Cambridge Refusing to Recognize Anti-Semitic Nature of Attack


The Algemeiner reports: A Jewish student who was recently the victim of an attack at Cambridge University accused the school on Tuesday of “setting a dangerous precedent” after it denied that the assailants were motivated by antisemitism.

Hughes Hall student Shlomo Roitner-Jesner — one of three kippah-wearing students verbally and physically assaulted by members of a Christ’s College drinking society —  told The Algemeiner he found it “positively shocking” that the head of Christ’s College, Professor Jane Stapleton, “categorically rejected the antisemitic nature” of the incident in a recent email she sent out to the campus community.

Responding to media reports of a cover-up at Cambridge, Stapleton wrote that the college has “no corroborating evidence” that any students involved had exhibited antisemitic behavior, adding, “I personally condemn in the strongest possible terms antisemitic, racist or any other form of discriminatory abuse.”
