Hate Group @SJPUTK Want Jews to Die

  Muslim students and other anti-Israel activists at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville (UTK) have created a “hostile environment” for Jewish students on campus, according to watchdogs, but the university’s administration seems to be blind to the terrorist threat: Canary Mission, a secretive watchdog group that compiles dossiers on students and academics it accuses of […]
