Last week, anti-Zionist protestors vandalized a display jointly hosted by Bearcats for Israel and Binghamton University Zionist Organization (BUZO). In response to recent string of rocket attacks targeting Israel, they planted around 500 red flags on the Spine, with around 50 flags removed.

ACF condemns the vandalism of this display from Zionist students at Binghamton in the strongest possible terms. We call on Binghamton University to act swiftly to ensure that students are not targeted based upon their Zionism.

ACF-Binghamton will continue to be actively engaged in responding to this incident. We are here to support the Jewish community on campus and we call on the broader Binghamton community to join us in this effort.
