I will always celebrate and honor the Jewish people," said US President Donald Trump at the White House Hanukkah reception [this will make MiriamEdelson even happier. Listen to her speak"
“This is our message to universities. If you want to extend the tremendous amount of federal dollars that you get every year, you must reject, reject antisemitism and you will never tolerate the suppression, persecution or silencing of the Jewish people," he said. "We have also taken a firm stand against the BDS."

Specifically, the order is aimed at federally-funded universities and colleges and will require the Department of Education, when reviewing whether there has been a violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, to consider this widely accepted definition of antisemitism as part of its assessment of whether an incident or activity may be antisemitic. As such, according to an explanation of the EO provided by the Anti-Defamation League, criticism of Israel could be considered antisemitic if it becomes “intentional, unlawful, discriminatory intimidation and harassment against Jews.”

The IHRA defines antisemitism as “a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”

Title VI prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. The Department of Education could cut federal funding for institutions that fail to remedy antisemitic incidents that fall under the title.
