Israeli lobby group has begun to pay students to agree with Israeli policy


A pro-Israeli lobby group, has begun a program to pay Canadian and American university and college students to agree with Israeli policy and to voice pro-Israeli sentiment in classroom discussion, and in grassroots organization with other campus groups.

The program, organized by the pro-Israel lobby group Stand With Us Campus, offers $1000 per year to pro-Israeli students or to students who may be enticed to go along in order to receive the prize of $1000 (source). In exchange for this money, students are to, in Stand With Us Campus’s own words, ”build relationships with their campus groups and individuals” to influence discourse in favour of Israel and then (again, in their words) ”report back to SWU campus staff to evaluate program effectiveness and network among themselves to ensure consistency.” (source)

So the next time you hear an undergraduate student in class claiming that Israel is only defending itself when the Palestinian/Israeli death toll is more than 14-to-1 in Israel’s favour, just think: he or she might actually be getting paid to say (and believe) such arguments.

According to Stand With Us Campus’s literature, so far, the following Canadian and American universities and colleges have a student or students (or “Fellows”, as they call them) who are being paid to advocate Israeli policy in their discussions and in their extra-curricular campus activity.
