NEW YORK- Brooklyn College on Thursday evening hosted an event hosted by the Students for Justice in Palestine, during which two speakers, and dozens of their supporters, called for the boycott, divestment and sanctioning of the State of Israel.

The evening went ahead as planned despite an uproar that ensued after the public college's political science department officially sponsored the event, sparking a debate over the weight of such a sponsorship and its appropriateness in an academic environment.
