The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) student government voted late Tuesday to recommend that the university divest from companies that are alleged to profit from Israeli human rights violations in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The motion passed after a similar measure failed in the spring--and just hours after a deadly Palestinian terror attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem that killed five, including a rabbi formerly from Los Angeles.
