Yale Students Award Peace Prize to Criminal Who Founded Anti-Israel Boycotts

“In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken interest and increase and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by oppression and hast forgotten Me saith the Lord GOD.”
Omar Barghouti, co-founder of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, received the Gandhi Peace Award from the Connecticut-based organization Promoting Enduring Peace at Yale University Sunday.

Rebecca Vilkomerson, executive director of the anti-Israel group Jewish Voice for Peace, presented Barghouti with the peace prize. Barghouti accepted the award in the presence of several hundred people and received a standing ovation.

The event was co-sponsored by the Yale chapter of the anti-Israel student group Students for Justice in Palestine. Yale University officials, meanwhile, attempted to distance the school from the award ceremony.
