They haven’t won anywhere yet but they’re still trying. “Students at New York University (NYU) plan to promote a resolution supportive of the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel in November, drawing opposition from some Zionist campus leaders,” the Algemeiner reported on October 16, 2018. “The resolution will be brought forward on November 1 by three students senators including Rose Asaf, a co-founder of Jewish Voice for Peace at NYU, the student-run Washington Square News reported.”

“It will be voted on through a secret ballot on December 6, after six speakers from each opposing side of the debate will be given two minutes to speak, and only NYU students will be allowed to attend. Asaf said that the resolution will be ‘explicitly posed’ as part of the BDS campaign, whose co-founder and other senior advocates have urged the creation of a Palestinian state in place of Israel.”
