‘I’ve heard a lot of Jew-hatred’: University of Texas at Austin students talk pro-Palestine protests

University of Texas at Austin students say the pro-Palestine “protests” on campus have turned into pure “Jew hatred.”

“I’ve heard a lot of Jew-hatred,” Jewish student Levi told Fox News. “I don’t call it antisemitism anymore. I think that’s sugarcoating it. It’s Jew-hatred when a girl walks up to me and says, ‘You should go back to Germany.'”

“Every time they protest, it’s going to make me louder, it’s going to make me prouder to be a Jew, and I’m not going to go home. They’re not going to scare me. I know the university administration has our backs in ensuring that Jews feel safe on college campuses. I’ve seen a lot of anti-Israel protests and I understand that. I’ve seen a lot of pro-Hamas chants. I’ve heard a lot of them,” he added.

“I’m ready for this to be over. I’m ready for Jew hatred to not have a place on our campus. I’m glad law enforcement and the administration is taking the correct steps to ensure that hatred has no place here at the University of Texas,” he concluded.

As Levi spoke with Fox News, the pro-Hamas “protesters” could be heard chanting the genocidal slogan “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

According to Fox News, the “protesters” have also told Jewish students things like “f–k you Zionist Nazi b–ch” and chanted “APD, KKK, IDF, they’re all the same.”

APD is short for the Austin Police Department, and IDF is short for the Israeli Defense Forces.

Levi’s remarks to Fox News came amid a campus protest that reportedly erupted days earlier on Wednesday.

“Hundreds of protesters gathered on campus at the University of Texas at Austin on Wednesday to participate in an unruly anti-Israel protest that included ‘significant participation by outside groups,’ according to a statement from the school,” Fox News notes. “Nearly 60 people were arrested, but criminal charges were dropped against 46 of the 57 protesters.”

“UT Austin joined universities like Columbia and Yale, as well as the University of Southern California, where anti-Israel protests have made headlines in recent days. UT Austin said the protest was organized by the Palestine Solidarity Committee, which it said seeks to ‘paralyze the operations of universities across the country,'” the outlet reported.

Another Jewish student, Jeremy, revealed that he was told by the pro-Palestine “protesters” to “go back to Germany,” which, FYI, is where the Holocaust occurred.

“I do obviously support the right to protest no matter what, but it’s getting a little antisemitic and, of course, it’s not how it should be going,” he said. “It’s hurtful, you know. Antisemitic rhetoric is being spread throughout.”

“We hear the chants and things like that. It’s really tough to hear, but it’s important that we stand here peacefully and share information and be willing to have discussions with individuals. But, yeah, it’s disheartening to hear that [anti-Israel chants]. We go to a school with such a great education and with such a great system and this rhetoric is still being spread around campus,” he added.

Some of the worst antisemitism has been spotted at other schools like Princeton, where “protesters” were seen this week proudly sitting next to the banner of the armed Shi’ite terrorist group Hezbollah.

Princeton is one of several schools where pro-Palestine, Hamas-sympathizing students have been  “protesting” and demanding that school officials divest from Israel.

As previously documented, these “protesters” have thus far been seen harassing Jews, intimidating Jews, scaring Jews, spitting at Jews, assaulting Jews, and more.

Some of the chants heard at these “protests” include the following: “Kill all the Jews,” “We want one Arab state,” “From the river to the sea,” “Zionists not allowed here,” and “Go back to Poland.”

“Protesters” have reportedly also called for more Oct. 7th-like terror attacks.

But displaying the Hezbollah flag may have very well been the last straw, as the group is a designated foreign terrorist organization.

“The Hezbollah movement has long been aligned with Iran, and a key part of the informal ‘Axis of Resistance’ grouping fighting against Israel and the U.S. across the Middle East,” according to Newsweek.

“The group has been involved in constant cross-border skirmishes with Israeli forces since Hamas’ October 7 infiltration attack and the subsequent offensive by Israel into the Gaza Strip,” Newsweek notes.
