( The anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine is offering a new non-credit course at the University of California, Davis that covers the meaning of boycotts against Israel and tactics for conducting them.

Hadas Buskila, the representative for the Jewish Agency for Israel at UC Davis, told Israel Hayom, “About 170 students and even two lecturers came to the first class. We are preparing to lead a strategic fight against this initiative, in cooperation with the pro-Israel group on campus.”

Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky has dramatically increased the organization’s number of emissaries and delegations on college campuses to more than 60, due to his view that campuses are one of the major arenas where delegitimization of Israel is being promoted.
