The World Union of Jewish Students have expressed their disgust over antisemitic posters found at the University of Illinois.

The posters claim that “ending white privilege…starts with ending Jewish privilege”, and details various ways in which Jews allegedly dominate social and economic elites, citing Pew Research.

The poster depicts a social pyramid, where the “one percent” at the top are depicted with Stars of David on their chests.

Regardless of the veracity of any of the research cited, which has clearly been twisted to suggest that dues have an undue position in society, the posters clearly and unabashedly play on antisemitic conspiracy theories of Jews dominating the business world and politics, a harmful canard which is perhaps most famously illustrated by the hoax “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, which became a common feature in Nazi propaganda as well as in much antisemitic rhetoric since.
