The piece, written by Rachel Burnett, is titled "Let students speak for themselves on Israel and Hamas. We don't need outside groups to doxx or threaten anyone."


On October 19th, The Los Angeles Times published an op-ed written by Rachel Burnett, one of the UCLA Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel' Studies' Roslyn and Abner Goldstine Undergraduate Fellows. The following quote is an excerpt from the article:

"As someone who has spent most of my college career attempting to engage my peers on the history and present reality in Israel–Palestine, I have long been frustrated by propagandist organizations that believe their “side” is deserving of unconditional support. The purpose of college should be to nurture and develop ideas and solutions, so it’s not surprising that these outside groups seek to recruit students like us." –Rachel Burnett, 2023–2024 Roslyn and Abner Goldstine Undergraduate Fellow
