Zionist thugs in Birmingham University

So Birmingham University's Student Union just passed two motions (one directly after the other even). 1. it shall take no position or stance on any aspect of the Israel/Palestine conflict, 2. it considers anyone who thinks Israel doesn't have a right to exist or who thinks it's racist to be an antisemite banned from speaking at the uni and any society who hosts an event where such sentiments are expressed shall be put before a disciplinary hearing where they can potentially be banned too. And when an amendment was proposed to include recognising Palestinians right to exist this was voted down. But it still has NO POSITION AT ALL on the conflict. This isn't just a vicious attack on pro-Palestinian activism and free speech, it's completely stupid. Total contradiction in the motions. Ridiculous.
