Gaza fundraiser at Rutgers stirs controversy

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (USANN4) — Student organizations at Rutgers University in New Jersey are in a dispute over a controversial fund-raiser.   The event this week was originally intended to raise funds for U.S. for Gaza.   It is a coalition that hopes to send humanitarian aid to Gaza in defiance of an Israeli naval blockade.   The campus group Rutgers Hillel opposes the event and questions whether the coalition is a legal charity.

Media reports say the university has decided the event can proceed.   However, it has not been determined where the proceeds will go.   Campus officials have met with the event’s sponsor to determine an appropriate recipient.
