Cardozo alumni set up website to protest Carter appearance

A group of concerned alumni of Yeshiva University's Cardozo law school has set up a website to oppose Jimmy Carter's appearance there on Wednesday, and has sent out the following email to fellow alumni.
Dear Cardozo Alumni and Friends of the School:

On Wednesday April 10, 2013 - that is this Wednesday -, Jimmy Carter will be honored at Cardozo to receive the International Advocate for Peace Award from the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution.
Jimmy Carter has an ignominious history of anti-Israel bigotry. He is responsible for helping to mainstream the antisemitic notion that Israel is an apartheid state with his provocatively titled book “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid”, the publication of which prompted mass resignations from the Carter Center. He has met numerous times with leaders of the terror group Hamas whitewashing their genocidal goals and undermining US efforts to isolate Hamas. And Carter’s record of slandering Israel is so voluminous that both CAMERA and Alan Dershowitz have written books refuting his lies.
While Carter may be credited for the role he played in the Camp David Accords as President of the United States and the resultant cold peace between Israel and Egypt that ensued, that event took place close to 30 years ago. Since the end of his presidency, Jimmy Carter has exhibited extreme antipathy towards Israel – and by extension the Jewish people – that places him firmly in the camp of the likes of Walt and Mearsheimer.
It is simply unconscionable for a Jewish affiliated school to honor someone who has played such a high profile role in demonizing the Jewish state. 

We therefore urge you to condition any continued support of Cardozo, be it financial or otherwise, on the cancellation of this event
Please also take 2 minutes out of your busy schedules to contact the Dean of Cardozo and President of Yeshiva University to express your outrage. Contact details are below.
We have established a website at www.shameoncardozo.com where you can find more information.
Please share and forward this email with your friends

Silence is complicity.
The Coalition of Concerned Cardozo Alumni

I put a similar urging onto a UCSD Alumni group on Linked In as regards the recently passed BDS divestment vote in the student govt, Also, the University of California, San Diego somehow (is it in the rules that way?) allowed the publicly supported student govt to hold a SECRET BALLOT of the supposed student body representatives in order to pass the resolution, which had failed multiple times before.

But the administrator of the UCSD Alumni Linked In thing took it down. Everybody needs to check out what is going on with their donation recipients and DO NOT give money to these New Left marcuse marxist caliphate type enablers. And start squawking about their receipt of public money when they are acting like one-note dictators.
