B’nai B’rith International has issued the following statement:
B’nai B’rith International is outraged to learn the Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) from St. Andrews University in Scotland was forced to relocate its annual charity ball from the St. Andrews Golf Hotel. Hotel officials claim they cancelled the fraternity’s event after hotel staff allegedly received threatening phone calls and emails from activists linked to the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
AEPi’s event was moved to an undisclosed location in the wake of the alleged threats.
It is absolutely unacceptable for the hotel to have been intimidated into cancelling the event.
B’nai B’rith expresses solidarity with its partner in AEPi and congratulates the organization on holding a successful event without disruption.
See where B'nai B'rith International stands on the issues.
