United States Congressman representing New York’s 10th Congressional District and CC ’69 alum Jerrold Nadler released a statement earlier today condemning the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions (BDS) movement currently occurring on campus. BDS is an international campaign, and Nadler’s letter denounces its mission, as well as directly addresses actions of Columbia students.
Nadler speaks out against the phrase “Long Live the Intifada,” which a supporting organization of CUAD recently published on Facebook. Nadler applauds the efforts of campus groups working against the movement “in an intelligent and respectful way.” You can read his full statement on Medium.
Columbia falls within the district Nadler represents, and his son is a recent graduate.
