Justice for Students in Parody (JSP)

"Israeli Apartheid Week" (IAW) here at Hampshire is over, and we are now on spring break, but the nice thing about a "week" that lasts for 14 or (depending on how one counts) even 20 days is: it is still bound to be going on somewhere in the world. O seculum! O literae! Iuvat vivere.

As I noted a while back, when Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at the University of Pittsburgh posted video documenting their efforts to disrupt a talk by Israel Defense Forces Reserve Sergeant Benjamin Anthony in January, an opposing student group created a parody remix on YouTube.

And so, when Hampshire Students for Justice in Palestine (HampshireSJP) imitated both the disruption and the promotional video—"Not Silent. Sgt. Benjamin Anthony [IDF] at Hampshire"—someone created a corresponding parody: Hampshire SJP Protest Fail.
