Pro-Palestinian NYU Group Slips Fake Eviction Notices Under Dorm Room Doors

A pro-Palestinian New York University organization took their fight to the New York University dorms.  Around 2000 undergrad students found fake "eviction notices" under their dorm room doors with the following notice:

"We regret to inform you that your suite is scheduled for demolition in three days." 
"If you do not vacate the premise by midnight on 25 April, 2014, we reserve the right to destroy all remaining belongings. Charges for demolition will be applied to your student accounts."

Although Students for Justice in Palestine placed "This is not a real eviction notice" at the bottom of the flyer, and they were slipped into dorm rooms of both Jews and non Jews alike, it had the Jewish students particularly fearful.

"It's an attack on the Jewish community," said sophomore Laura Adkins, 19, a pro-Israel activist. "It's specifically targeting Jewish students, which makes them feel not so safe."
"People are fearful," she said. "Parents of prospective students have called me asking, 'Is my student safe going to NYU?' "

Not a peep from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.  You know there would be hell to pay if someone had slipped a flyer about Muslim terrorism under the doors of the NYU grads.

However, this isn't the first time pro-Pali student groups have done this.  They pulled a similar stunt at Florida Atlantic University, in Boca Raton, Florida a few years back.
