With the failure of the BDS resolution before the Student Assembly this past Thursday, Cornell Hillel and Cornellians for Israel, both of which strongly opposed the measure, declared a victory for peace. If Hillel and CFI are serious about promoting human rights of Palestinians and Israelis, they must walk the walk. The willingness expressed by Cornell Hillel to engage in dialogue around the conflict is admirable. If you would like to stand up for Palestinians in Israel, the Occupied Territories and beyond within the framework of the Cornell Jewish community, get in touch! Guest Room appears periodically this semester.
