Interesting story. It's very sad how elements of the hard left have become increasingly anti-semitic and abusive.
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, it would seem.Among the abusive messages Confino received on social media app Yik Yak were “Hitler was onto something,” “Jewish prick” and “Israeli ****.” When attempting to oppose a student union motion to boycott Israeli produce, Confino was told he was responsible for the anti-Semitic abuse he was getting because of his support for Israel, The Times says.
Confino was also, he says, accosted by several members of the university’s Palestine Solidarity Society, including Jeremy Corbyn’s son Tom.
“The number of anti-Semitic incidents I was subject to went from zero in my first year to about 20 in my second and third years,” Confino said, quoted in The Times.
“The university did not do much about it. It has taken me two years to fight a complaint and I am relieved I have finally got this apology. The stuff I was subjected to came from far-left students,” he continued.
