Congressman George Holding (NC-02) has called for an investigation into claims of antisemitism at the “Conflict over Gaza: People, Politics, and Possibilities,” hosted by UNC Chapel-Hill recently reported on by this website.
Congressman Holding sent a 2-page letter to Education Secretary Betsy Devos asking for the inquiry into the “reports of severe anti-Israeli bias and explicit anti-Semitism at a joint UNC-Duke conference held at the University of North Carolina on March 22nd, 23rd, and 24th.”
Holding’s letter notes that the conference was held using $235,000 in public funds through federal grants.
