The Trouble With Jesuits, Part 18

On Tuesday evening, Loyola University of Chicago (A JESUIT SCHOOL) became the first Catholic institution, and the first from the state of Illinois, whose student government has passed an anti-Israel divestment resolution. 

 

The resolution, which a source says was not announced in advance, and faced no debate or opposition, called for the university “to divest from corporations profiting from Israel’s occupation” and passed unanimously, with twenty-six votes in favor and two abstentions.
A video of the resolution's passage was posted online. Many of the students applauding appear to be Muslim, with female students wearing headscarves at the meeting.
