For Friends of Israel, a Frosty Swarthmore February

By Daphne Anson


Ah, those earnest left-leaning bastions of a “liberal” education.  Don’t you just love ’em?

I’ve written before (see here and here) of the zeal for the anti-Israel pro-Palestinian cause that seems to have taken hold at Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania, one of the top liberal arts colleges in the United States.

And now here’s a look at Swarthmore College’s 2019 calendar, where alumni and others turning to the February page will be confronted by this image:

Was it really necessary to depict a student wearing a keffiyeh, that universal symbol of Israel-hate among wearers in the West, in a publication that should surely be non-political and inclusive?

Presumably the keffiyeh reflect the “change, and impact on the world” that the college is fostering, according to the accompanying blurb.

Shame, Swatties, shame.
