Brett Cohen, national campus program director for StandWithUs - a pro-Israel group that works vigorously on campuses to improve Israel's image and combat SJP - agrees with Jacobson.
"Just watching the way SJP has ravaged their reputation, I think what they are doing is a huge favor for us," Cohen said, "because every single time this happens, the pro-Israel community on campus wakes up."
A mixed record
If Jacobson and Cohen are right - that SJP's new tactics will tarnish their image among college students - there still may be a ways to go until that evidence is clear.

On May 22, Cohen spoke by phone with the Journal from the campus of DePaul University in Chicago, where, one day later, the student body passed a referendum calling on the administration to divest from a number of companies that do business with Israel. The measure passed, with 1,575 students supporting divestment and 1,333 voting against it.

StandWithUs national campus program director Brett Cohen encouraged Emerson fellows to go back to their campuses with talking points and use social networking to promote dialogue on campus.
"The only way to push through is by building person-to-person connections," Cohen said. "This year we need to concentrate on breaking the dynamic and building the relationship."
Cohen advised students to have discussions with Palestinian groups on campus. He recommended that they try to find a neutral faculty member to facilitate dialogues, work on outreach, idea sharing and community building.
"This is going to be an indefinite endeavor," Cohen said, warning that dialogue can be a painstaking process with uncertain outcomes.
