During the meeting, a member of the RSU (Ryerson Student Union) proposed delaying the vote for a year, so that students could be better educated about the issue. "The BDS [advocates] spoke out that clearly people knew about it because there were so many people there... Yes... All Palestinian! So clearly the BDS had done a great job of advertising to THEIR people but for obvious reasons didn't seem to promote as much with the rest of the students," she said.During discussions, she said the group claimed that the Israeli army was the "best-treated, most-funded, well-fed terrorist organization."The opposing side argued that this was anti-Semitic and if passed would have colossal effects to the students on campus. It would make Jewish and/or Israeli students feel targeted and unsafe on campus. One point made by a student opposed to the motion said, "if this was about targeting a country who has political injustice then why are they not targeting Syria, Egypt, China, Russia." A student group who advocated for the motion, Students for Justice in Palestine, wrote on their Facebook page that the motion passed with an 80% majority, with 1600 signatures. The Facebook post also said that members of the group found actions by the small Jewish group "extremely outrageous and an overreaction." They also said that the group should apologize, and added that their actions were "irrelevant," and motivated by "Islamaphobia."The RSU is the governing student body who are supposed to represent the entire campus as a whole, however one member of the council by the name of Jesse Root, spoke in support of the movement, a clear violation of his role, said Saunders-Drutz, and "removed all neutrality from the student union and no longer did the RSU represent the entire student body."The president of the university, Sheldon Levy, who is Jewish, has not yet responded to the passed motion.
