    Every one know that Palestinians are facing deaths, prisons and are being forced out from their homes with military power, it is not a hidden secret.

      And the name of the terrorists doing this to their OWN ppl is HAMAS. The cause of all misery of gain arabs.

      PS the only “palestinians” if you must use the term, would be the indigenous people i.e. THE JEWS.

    So she is still in a leadership position on the “executive”?!!

  • RachelG

    The article says she is still in a representative position on the “executive”. Why?!

  • Ryan Bellerose

    not good enough, the fact that she says this ““My view on Israel isn’t any more right or wrong, or more Jewish or less Jewish than anyone else’s view on Israel. This is just how I personally and politically feel about the State of Israel. I have a more left-wing opinion, which is fine. CUWI has, on a political spectrum, a more right-wing opinion, and that’s fine, too. Their opinion isn’t more or less valid than mine,” she said. – See more at: http://www.cjnews.com/campus/calgary-student-resigns-hillel-post-over-israel-views#sthash.swuBXlMV.dpuf” shows that she is in fact clueless.

    people are entitled to opinions, however they need to base them on facts and this woman isnt doing that, instead she is spreading libel about jews, as to her own “jewishness” it doesnt matter, spreading lies and libel is still not acceptable.

    Hillel needs to remove her completely.

      Innocent children (and people of all ages) have been killed on both sides. Do you dispute this?
      Again, I understand Hillel is a Jewish organization, but blind faith is never something you should strive for in leaders. Being internally critical isn’t a bad thing

      • George Egorov

        Innocent people get killed in wars. That is not the same as a charge of murder.

        • SeeEss

          So she said children have been “murdered” instead of children have been “killed”. Bad choice of words on her part perhaps,but now you’re arguing semantics.
          It doesn’t change the fact that what she said isn’t that unreasonable and not at all offensive. She is questioning if what is being done is right in the grand scheme of humanitarianism. We need more of that kind of attitude towards solving this problem

          • George Egorov

            It is not semantics,but a question of shifting blame.

          • xxx

            There is a HUGE difference between murder and kill. Only an imbecile would not acknowledge that.

      • Ryan Bellerose

        saying that innocent children on both sides have been killed is true, and its radically different from what this asshat said which was that ” Israel massacres children.” which is in fact modern day blood libel and is patently untrue, how the hell can you claim to represent jewish students, many of whom are zionists, when you spread effluence like that?

        • SeeEss

          Cool it with the blood libel talk; that’s just ridiculous. Nothing in her comment indicates that’s what she thinks.
          I know it’s hard to remove the emotion from this debate, but I just don’t think it’s impossible to support something while being critical of the methods being used to achieve it. That’s all I see happening here.

          • Ryan Bellerose

            Try actually reading all her comments before expressing an opinion, you clearly havent. stating that the ” the israeli state massacres children” is in fact modern day blood libel designed to delegitimise the jewish state.

          • SeeEss

            First of all, blood libel has a specific meaning. This is not it.

            If there are comments she made that are not included in the article, please enlighten me, but my entire opinion is based on the things she has said. Obviously Hillel can do whatever it feels is best for its members. I just think the level of outcry over the actual content of the comments is out of balance.

            This is why many people are critical of the Zionist movement. It sort of has this protective shell where any criticism of Israel can be deflected as being “anti-Semitic” or “trying to delegitimize the Jewish state”. Even a self-proclaimed Jewish Zionist is not free to criticize. She was critical of the heavily militarized way Israel is approaching this conflict (for the record, I know Palestine is responsible for this too). And even though that is a perfectly legitimate opinion, she was chastised for not completely and blindly supporting Israel.

          • Ryan Bellerose

            “Israeli government massacres children” nuff said

          • xxx

            Anti Zionism is just the politically correct euphemism for Jew hatred … call a spade a spade for Pete sake.

          • xxx

            How can anyone in their right mind be “critical” of a tiny country like Israel defending itself in the only way possible, from islamic terrorism.
            What would you want YOUR country to do if in the same position?

      • xxx

        Which is at fault? Oh ya, one party IS as fault and the name starts with HAMAS.
        Can you offers ANY other solution other than what Israel mist do to defend herself?

    • John

      Opinions need to be based on fact? Where do you get this from? Is it from the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms or the Univeral Declaration of Human Rights? Do tell!

      • Ryan Bellerose

        yeah silly me thinking people should be accountable for their words, especially if they are in a position of authority lol

        • John

          Try and be more precise in the future. It affects your credibility when you make such absurd statements.

  • SeeEss

    I would expect a Jewish organization to be pro-Israel, but her comments seem to be more anti-war to me. What exactly is wrong with suggesting that democratic and human rights should apply to all people?
    To me, the outrage just shows a complete lack of objectivity.

    • xxx

      Her “comment” that she portrayed as fact, is in fact, A LIE.
      To hell with her. Israel does NOT murder anyone. Quite the opposite, they take great pains to NOT hurt civilians.
