Passover is a significant Jewish holiday. It begins at sundown on Monday. It marks the Jewish people’s escape from slavery in Egypt:

For the last of the ten plagues, God asked the Jews to sacrifice a lamb or goat and smear its blood on their doorposts as a way to show that their house was Jewish. Then God went through all the houses and killed the first-born son of every Egyptian house, passing over the Jewish homes. In Hebrew, Passover is called Pesach, meaning “to pass over.”

This last plague pushed Pharaoh to set the Israelites free. Since they had to leave quickly, they didn’t have time to wait for their bread to rise. This is why Jews eat matzah, a flat, unleavened bread, and refrain from eating grains on Passover.

The Pharaoh and his army attempted to pursue the Israelites as they left Egypt, but Moses parted the Red Sea, allowing the Israelites to escape.

The Passover holiday both celebrates the freedom of the Israelites and commemorates their suffering in Egypt.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence these anti-Israel dumbs chose this week to amp up their hatred.

Columbia University

Columbia University. Man, I don’t know what to say.

Columbia officials told students they could attend classes and take exams virtually on Monday due to the anti-Israel protesters covering the lawns.

Professor Shai Davidai requested Columbia give him a police escort.

Rabbi Elie Buechler, a rabbi associated with Columbia University’s Orthodox Union Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus, advised Jewish students to leave campus and return home to avoid “extreme antisemitism and anarchy.”

“It is not our job as Jews to ensure our own safety on campus,” wrote Buechler. “No one should have to endure this level of hatred, let alone at school.”


A Yale Jewish student said an anti-Israel protester stabbed her in the eye with the pole holding a Palestinian flag:

Sahar Tartak, editor-in-chief of the Yale Free Press, had been covering the protest, which had drawn hundreds of students in support of Palestinians, when she says she was surrounded by a mob of protesters.

Tartak said the protest had been slowly brewing for the week prior, with students setting up a tent encampment in the middle of campus and creating a memorial to a Palestinian terrorist, Walid Daqqa. The crowd had also created a mock F-16 covered in fake blood to protest the Israeli military.

This activity, Tartak said, culminated in hundreds of students gathering at the plaza, chanting slogans like: “There is one solution, intifada revolution.”

When Tartak went Saturday night to cover the protest with a friend, the crowd instantly singled them out because they were “identifiably Jewish,” she said.

“They made a human blockade in front of us and blockaded us whenever we tried to exercise our freedom of movement around the protest,” Tartak said.

At some point, she and her friend were separated. The protesters formed a circle around her, chanting incendiary slogans and taunting her.

“One of the students, whose face was covered in a keffiyeh, took a Palestinian flag that he was holding, waved it in my face and hit my left eye,” Tartak said.

Monday morning, police began arresting students at the encampment at Beinecke Plaza. Over 2450 students converged on the plaza on Sunday night.
