Harassment of students who expressed pro-Israel ideologies at U.S. college campuses increased by a record-high 70% over the last year, according to a new report published Tuesday by the AMCHA Initiative, a watchdog group that investigates and documents anti-Semitism at higher institutions.

In its report, "The Harassment of Jewish Students on U.S. Campuses: How Eliminationist Anti-Zionism and Academic BDS Incite Campus Anti-Semitism," AMCHA monitored anti-Semitism on more than 400 college campuses.

"Antisemitic acts involving the singling out of Jewish and pro-Israel students and groups for personal vilification more than doubled," including a 147% increase in incidents of the students being linked to "white supremacy," per the findings. "Attempts to exclude" Jewish and pro-Israel students "from campus activities more than doubled, with expression calling for the total boycott or exclusion of pro-Israel students from campus life nearly tripling."

Expression promoting or condoning terrorism against Israel also increased by 67%.

Campuses have seen a rise in displays targeting Jews since the deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue in October 2018.

Last November, a swastika was painted over a mural honoring the victims of a synagogue shooting at Duke University. Swastikas were discovered on the Cornell University campus and on a Jewish teacher's office at Columbia University in the same month.
