Over the past month we have seen many "ice bucket" challenge
videos to raise awareness for ALS.
Well, at Ohio University the student senate president, Megan
Marzec took it upon herself to change up the challenge. She was challenged by Ohio University President Roderick McDavis to raise awareness for ALS. Instead, she issued a "blood bucket" challenge calling upon OhioUniversity to divest from Israel.
She posted a video of herself wearing a bright pink shirt with
the words "divest from Israel" and poured a "blood-like" substance
over her head. She said her video was meant to raise
awareness of the Palestinians being killed by Israel.
The student senate even tweeted out an apology stating that they
"humbly apologize for the video that President Megan Marzec
posted." However, it should be noted that Megan has not issued an apology.
We have seen many cases this year of campuses launching "divest
from Israel" initiatives and we have worked with many pro-Israel
students to help combat this anti-Semitism.
Young America's Foundation calls upon the administration at Ohio University to denounce the anti-Semitic actions of their student senate president.
