  • YAF activist Aaron Marcus (Rutgers Univerity)--who has been featured on Fox News, GBTV, Wall Street Journal, and the Huffington Post--sat down with YAF to give his perspective on the rapant anti-Semitic threats against him at Rutgers. You can also read his blog on YAF's The Quad further documenting these occurrences.

    Today, the Huffington Post reported on the ungoing investigation by the Department of Education about the threats on Marcus:

    The U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights is investigating Rutgers University for its response to alleged anti-Semitic harassment, according to documents obtained by The Huffington Post.

    The Zionist Organization of America, a right-leaning Jewish advocacy group, presented the government with claims that Jewish students at Rutgers have been the object of anti-Semitic intimidation on Facebook by an employee of the university -- and that the university did not respond properly.

    "OCR has one open complaint involving Rutgers University," Daren Briscoe, a U.S. Education Department spokesperson, confirmed in an email. "The complaint alleges that the University failed to respond appropriately to a complaint alleging that students were subjected to harassment and different treatment because of their national origin (Jewish ancestry/ethnicity). The OCR complaint is currently under investigation."

    Here's the rest of their report: *Huffington Post*

    • god i hate jews. someone made fun of me so im gonna cwy about it. give me a break in this day and age if someone doesnt make fun of you its cause you cant take a joke and probably has no friends. and if it wasnt a joke this is college you should be more mature than to make a crusade after someone calls you a name. there are many many people in this world suffering way more than you. think about someone else for a change

    • I admire what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the comments that this is working for you as well.genemedics
