Columbia University Anti-Israel Groups Distort Facts, Israeli Student Clarifies

Months after anti-Israel groups at Columbia University claimed they were victims of a chemical weapons attack by an Israeli student, new information has emerged to challenge these allegations. According to a recent complaint filed against the university, it was revealed that the student had used a novelty fart spray, rather than a harmful chemical, during a protest.

The student was suspended after attending a Pro-Palestinian protest on January 17, where he sprayed a non-toxic fart spray into the air. The complaint states that he had purchased this gag spray on Amazon for a mere $26.11. Disputing the claims made by Students for Justice in Palestine Columbia (SJP) and Jewish Voice for Peace Columbia (JVP), the filing noted that there is no evidence to support the supposed harm caused by the spray.

Furthermore, it was revealed that the individuals who filed complaints against the student had declined counseling and medical evaluations. They had also started fundraising pages to solicit donations for their alleged suffering. These actions were seen as an attempt to characterize the plaintiff as dangerous, despite the lack of evidence to support such claims.

The filing clarified that the student brought the spray to express his speech and thoughts on the pro-Hamas, pro-Palestine, anti-Israel sentiment at the rally. The spray was not directed at any individual, but rather a harmless expression of discontent. The student’s actions were intended to critique the message being promoted at the protest and nothing more.

The complaint further accuses Columbia University of discriminatory treatment towards the plaintiff, noting that the university failed to take action against students who called for violence at an unauthorized event. This treatment, according to the complaint, is a clear example of disparate treatment based on the student’s Jewish identity.

The student endured death threats on social media and the spread of false information claiming he was armed and dangerous. Despite expressing concerns for his safety, the university took no action against this doxing, which violated university policies.

This case highlights the ongoing issue of antisemitism on college campuses, including Columbia University. By filing this lawsuit, the student seeks to hold the university accountable for ignoring the experiences of Jewish students who have faced discrimination for far too long.

The student hopes to receive a fair trial by jury to address these issues of discrimination and misrepresentation. Ultimately, this case sheds light on the importance of ensuring a balanced and respectful environment for all students, regardless of their background or beliefs.
