"Students for Palestine" leaves eviction notices for Jewish NYU students

Pro-Palestinian activists leave ‘eviction’ notices for Jewish NYU students
By Erin Calabrese and Bob FredericksApril 24, 2014 | 3:04pm

A pro-Palestinian NYU group targeted Jewish classmates with threatening “eviction” notices that were slid under dorm-room doors in the dead of night, students said Thursday.

“If you do not vacate the premise by midnight on 25 April, 2014 we reserve the right to destroy all remaining belongings. We cannot be held responsible for property or persons remaining inside the premises,” read the notices, which were delivered by members of the Students for Justice in Palestine.



NYU sophomore Hunter Goet, whose room got one of the threatening notices overnight Wednesday, said, “A lot of people felt transgressed upon because they felt threatened by it.”

“They felt like their housing was being threatened. It was a massive source of panic.”

The activist student group targeted Palladium Hall on East 14th Street because it is widely believed to house the most Jewish residents — and even has a special elevator that works without pressing buttons on the Sabbath, reported the Times of Israel.

The warnings conclude, “THIS IS NOT A REAL EVICTION NOTICE” — and the group said they were replicas of notices routinely left at the homes of Palestinians by the Israeli government.

NYU spokesman John Beckman said that while the school encourages open discussion, the prank crossed the line.

“It is disappointingly inconsistent with standards we expect to prevail in a scholarly community,” Beckman said. “Our Residence Life and Housing Office will be communicating with the students in the dorm, looking into the matter, and following up appropriately.”

NYU officials didn’t understand why Palladium was targeted.

“However, were it to be the case that the fliering was done there because it was perceived to be a dorm with a higher proportion of Jewish students, that would be troubling, dismaying and a matter of deep concern for our community,” Beckman said.

Similar hate pranks have been pulled at other universities in recent months, including Rutgers, Michigan and Northeastern.

Students at the NYU dorm were shaken by the incident.

“We thought we were getting evicted. We were panicking a little bit,” said sophomore Gabrielle Doria, 20.

Another sophomore, 20-year-old Lexi Clarke, also believed she was being thrown out.

“We were all just kind of freaking out,” she said. “I was so confused about what was happening.”

No one with the group could be reached for comment.

I don't really get how that would show there's no malice. If that's the implication.

Where is the Malice? Are they threatening anyone? Any inappropriate verbage? The tone of the letter doesn't come off as rude or condescending. It's written as an informative article. It's written as if it were designed to raise awareness. It's not written as if it were designed to offend someone. It states EXACTLY what its intention is right there at the bottom in big, bold lettering. Titling it as an "Eviction Notice" was clearly done for effect, and it makes sure to very, very quickly dispel any notion that it's a real eviction notice.

The only reason it could even possibly be considered offensive is because it wound up in the hands of people who are Jewish. That alone doesn't mean that the document was made with malicious intent.

To those who aren't Jewish, does this document honestly offend you?

I get that it can be interrupted as "insensitive". I've stated that much already. I agree that it wasn't very well thought out. But i don't think their intention was to piss anyone off, no.

If they wanted to piss off the Jewish community, i can think of a million other, and far more offensive ways to do it, im sure they can too.

If it was sent to a dorm or building that they knew housed a large number of Jewish students and that building was targeted for that reason then it was certainly done with malice.
If they thought it was just informative why didn't they show up face to face and hand them out? Why secretly distribute them under doors overnight? Why hide it?

For effect? Same reason why they called it an eviction notice in the first place? Kinda losses the effect if it's just being passed around like a basic flyer.

It seems that the big hang up is the fact that it was distributed to a mostly Jewish building.

Does it mean that they hate jews and want to piss them off, or does it mean that they think that the jewish students are unaware that this is occurring and would like to make them aware in hopes that their support can help put an end to the demolition of Palestinian housing?

No one here has any idea of what their intention is, so my question to all of you is, why do you automatically assume the intention is malicious?

How did you come to that conclusion? It certainly wasn't from the document itself. There is no offensive verbage nor an offensive tone within the document at all, so i know you couldn't have drawn that conclusion from the document alone.

Is it because it's a Palestinian organization? It must be, right? Because it's a Palestinian organization in the U.S, that instantly makes you think that they're "attacking" the jews, right? Even though there isn't a shred of evidence in that document that their intentions were malicious, people automatically assume it is because of WHO handed it out.

What if it were handed out by Jewish students? It becomes a non issue doesn't it? No one would care.

And then i get labeled a Racist against Jews by this idiot Forever...w/e the **** his name is, yet im the only person in this thread who isn't automatically nailing this Palestinian organization to the wall based off their nationality.

And then you continue on with this destruction of Israel bullshit. Where does this organization say they want to kill Jews? It doesn't you ****ing morAn. Did you even read the article you posted?

I assume not, since you posted it and don't even understand that it doesn't support your argument in anyway. Either that or you have the reading comprehension of a 4 year old.

OK then, so what was the point of the prank? To raise awareness of the plight of the Palestinians? To make whatever Jews they did this to feel guilty for the actions of Israel?

It's typical juvenile stupid college bullshit. They all feel they are making a difference while making some grand statement. They idiots, but they're not stupid. Nobody does something like this without some malicious intent. They wanted to make them uncomfortable, they wanted to give them a dose of Israel's medicine.

This is not a threat. This is a joke. Just kidding! Geez, can't you Jews take a joke??

Gotcha.

It's reflective of the type of eviction notices that Palestinians receive from Israel when they decide they want to expand their "settlements".

In case you're unaware, Israel has been building "settlements" to push Palestinians out. Just about everyone in the world has said they need to stop (the UN, us, etc) yet they continue to expand them. This group is trying (not tastefully) to raise awareness on that issue.
