In response to an attack on the Palestine Society at Oxford by President of the Oxford University Israel Society Richard Black, who accused the University Palestinian Society of “anti-Semitism” [and] In a post on the OUIS Facebook group labeled PalSoc, “a vicious hub of anti-Israel and even anti-Semitic hate”,
[Oxford University] Israel Society [member] Ariel Hoffman said: “I don’t think you’ve done us a great service here [...] I was hoping for some civil discussion but it seems you’re doing everything in your power to throw that out the window. You can still make this right [...] Make it clear that Israel Society is not at odds with the Palestinian one.”
Not all that bad, though:
Hoffman was later expelled from the Society, accused by Black of violating the society’s aims “to ﬁght political and religious extremism, Anti-semitism, Islamophobia and all other forms of racial or religious discrimination”.
In another post Black said, “He (Hoffman) will be far happier in PalSoc. There he can have ‘dialogue with anti-semites’”.
