Thats just great: Students Urge South African University to Expel Jews

The student government of the Durban University of Technology, in South Africa, has called on the institution to expel Jewish students, although some quotes from student leaders suggest that Jewish students who support the Palestinian cause could remain, The Daily News reported. Mqondisi Duma, secretary of the student government, said, "We had a meeting and analyzed international politics. We took the decision that Jewish students, especially those who do not support the Palestinian struggle, should deregister. A statement from Ahmed C. Bawa, vice chancellor of the university, denounced the student government's request. He called the request "outrageous, preposterous and a deep violation of our National Constitution and every human rights principle."

2. they have apologized if anyone was offended

they are also backtracking and trying lamely to whitewash their obvious antisemitism.

On his Facebook page, Duma posted a statement from the student council, saying that the panel "apologizes without reservation to any one offended by recent demands made by us regarding Jewish students."

4. They don't remember apartheid, apparently.

 

Stupid like this is dangerous. Mandela must be spinning in his grave.

Kudos to the vice-chancellor for standing up to this BS.
