University of California approves anti-Semitism statement

SAN FRANCISCO – A University of California committee on Wednesday cited anti-Semitism as a form of intolerance that campus leaders should challenge but rejected a more far-reaching denouncement of any criticism of Israel’s right to exist.

The committee of the university’s governing Board of Regents voted unanimously to send the statement on to the full board for final consideration on Thursday. The statement opposing anti-Semitic behavior has been under discussion for a year amid a wave of impassioned campus activism that has sparked tensions between Palestinian rights supporters and strong allies of Israel.
