The international grassroots civil-rights movement #EndJewHatred issued the following statement in response to recent calls for the National Guard to be deployed in response to escalating anarchy at American universities:
 
“Since late October 2023, when mobs of pro-Hamas radicals began spreading their aggressive protests from college campuses to city streets, menacing and even physically attacking Jews, the #EndJewHatred civil-rights movement has been calling for the deployment of the National Guard to keep us safe. We renewed this call in January, when these same mobs attempted to breach the White House. We are glad to see that leading elected officials are now heeding our call.

“Throughout the civil-rights movement, the National Guard was deployed to safeguard our civil rights in the face of hate-mongers who violently rejected even our right to exist. Unfortunately, recent events have seen such a massive escalation of pure anarchy targeting all Americans—not just the Jewish people—that there is no choice but to call out the National Guard to protect not just our legal rights, but our lives.

“To be clear, this is not an escalation. This is the appropriate response to keep Americans safe, and American democracy intact. It would also prevent universities like Columbia from negotiating with anarchists and giving into them, abandoning the campus to their illegal occupation while forcing their victims to continue learning offline.

“This is inexcusable; Columbia should shut down campus entirely, take all learning remote, but also padlock the campus and arrest all trespassers. So should other campuses dealing with this problem. No American school should reopen for in-person learning until the safety of all students can be assured, and there is a plan in place to temper the aggression of radical protestors.

“Since colleges have been unwilling to enforce their rules and policies, they have forsaken their duties not just to their students, but also to their communities. Violence has spread far and wide as a result, and half-hearted, occasional arrests of perpetrators has done nothing to end or discourage this lawlessness. It’s time to bring in the National Guard. It’s time to enforce our laws. It’s time to keep all Americans safe. Pro-terrorist supporters should not be allowed to expand the violence in the Middle East to middle America.”
