Vast “financial, material, and programming support” from national organizations, and a message that draws on social justice rhetoric, have expanded the sophistication and reach of campus anti-Israel campaigns, according to a new report by a Zionist advocacy group.

An “information war against Israel and its campus-based supporters” has been launched by student groups with the assistance of national partners, wrote the Israel on Campus Coalition. “[A] broad range of professional groups—including AMP, AFSC, Palestine Legal, the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP)…implemented a robust digital engagement strategy, managing websites and social media channels intended for American students,” according to the report.

The report found that non-campus groups, such as Palestine Legal, have even drafted the boycott, divestment, and sanction resolutions brought before student governments.
