Tufts University Students for Justice in Palestine withdrew their petition to have a Jewish student government leader impeached for defending Israel, bringing an end to a months-long conflict.

Last fall, the Tufts Community Union debated a resolution sponsored by the SJP, which blamed Israel for militarizing U.S. police. Max Price, a union member and Tufts junior, opposed the resolution, citing factual errors.

At the behest of the SJP, the union barred Price from further debate and moved to impeach him. After facing legal pressure from the Louis D. Brandeis Center, SJP withdrew their complaint Friday. 

The resolution Price opposed falsely claimed that Tufts University sent campus police officers to an antiterrorism training program in Israel conducted by the Israeli Defense Force. In reality, the Anti-Defamation League sponsored the event, which included both Israeli and Palestinian police officers, and invited officers to attend.

After voicing his concerns, Price faced months of harassment from other students. He previously told the Washington Free Beacon that he had been called a "racist, a fascist, and a Nazi." Tufts largely ignored his series of complaints, Price said. The school once referred him to the Office of Equal Opportunity, which told Price that they don’t deal with allegations of anti-Semitism.
