Campus Maccabees

Everyone who asked American Jewish businessman and philanthropist Sheldon Adelson over the weekend the question of how the boycott campaign against Israel could be defeated received the same answer: “Cooperation.”

On Friday, Adelson and his wife, Dr. Miriam Adelson, convened the Campus Maccabees Summit at The Venetian hotel in Las Vegas involving around 50 different groups engaged in the fight against the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, which has become very active on American college campuses over the past decade.

To consolidate forces, Adelson invited a number of Jewish philanthropists to Las Vegas for the summit, including Israeli-American businessman Haim Saban, who, as the owner of Partner Communications, has felt the sting of the boycott campaign against Israel in recent days with the Orange saga, which he called “pure anti-Semitism.”

Meanwhile, the J Street kapos are squealing.
