A University of Pennsylvania student who claimed she was left "homeless" when administrators kicked her off campus for participating in an anti-Israel encampment is the daughter of a wealthy Filipino family.

Eliana Atienza, 19 — who told the Philadelphia Inquirer she had nobody to turn to for help in the US after she was kicked off campus in early May — is the daughter of Kim Atienza, a prominent media personality in the Philippines who is partial to showing off his extravagant lifestyle online.

Her mother, Felicia Atienza, graduated from the Wharton Business School and has served as the president and CEO of several international schools over the years, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

The family enjoys flaunting their wealth on social media, with posts showing their extensive motorcycle collection, first-class flights with private showers and caviar service and hobnobbing with celebrities.

Despite being supposedly destitute herself, Atienza recently took a trip to Antarctica, according to posts from her own social media, and has traveled across the world to the likes of Alaska and Paris.

Nevertheless, Atienza claimed in an interview with KYW Newsradio that UPenn administrators had left her cast out on the street with nowhere to turn.

"I don't have any family to go back home to here," she told the outlet.

She was one of six students suspended from campus on May 9 for participating in an anti-Israel encampment that had taken up a campus green to protest Israel and its war against Hamas following its deadly Oct. 7 terror attack.

Police began breaking up the encampment the following day.

Atienza participated in unsuccessful negotiations with school administrators over the demonstrators' desires to have the university divest itself of any investments connected to Israel.

She is also a part of Fossil Free Penn — devoted to having the school divest investments in fossil fuel companies — which co-signed a letter in support of "Palestinians who are fighting to liberate their lands from the Israeli Occupation," published just days after Oct. 7.

Atienza did not respond to requests for comment.

I guess she doesn't know that Israel has been out of Gaza since around 2006.  Her "education" failed her and many others.

Israel has been blockading Gaza since 2007.

Israel also still has settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

All of which is supposed to be a part of the Palestinian state.

She may or may not know that.

What I am sure she doesn't know is how to help the Palestinians in any constructive way.

I was tempted to say "I'm surprised you didn't know that"...but actually I'm not surprised-- many Americans are not very familiar with what's actually going on there.

(FACT: Gaza has borders with two countries-- Israel and Egypt)

Why?  jrSmiley_26_smiley_image.gif

Hand in Hand: Center for Jewish-Arab Education in Israel   is a network of integrated, bilingual schools for Jewish and Arab children in  Israel .

Photo: Students from Hand in Hand's Galilee School

Hand in Hand's mission is to create a strong and inclusive shared society in Israel through a network of integrated, bilingual schools and active communities. The organization's philosophy is that the actual living experience of its students, teachers, parents and others who participate in its schools and communities can inspire broad support for social inclusion and civic equality in Israel.

Hand in Hand was founded in 1997 by two Israeli educators, one Arab and one Jewish. They started the first two schools in 1998, one in the Galilee region near the    Misgav Regional Council   and one in Jerusalem.

Question: What makes you think that these schools* are "not constructive'?"

* . . . a network of integrated, bilingual schools for Jewish and Arab children in Israel " -- what makes you think that that is not "positive"?   .

Hamas aka the Palestinians don't want a state, or a two-state solution. Their only goal and purpose in life is to kill all the Jews. They have said so repeatedly. What is now Israel has been the homeland of the Jews for several thousand years.

Krishna, don't pay attention to that "man behind the curtain".  When he uses the word "blockade" he meant tthe hundreds of trucks of aid and everyday products, food, medical equipment, the pipelines of fuel, water and electricity that transferred their products into Gaza every day, the thousands of workers who left Gaza daily for better paying jobs in Israel, the many persons seeking superior medical care who were permitted access to Israeli hospitals (including close relatives of Hamas leaders).  All of those benefits Hamas ended with its Oct 7 massacre.  I am getting really sick and tired of reading such fucking IGNORANT comments about BLOCKADES that are meant to stop weapons used to fire at Israelis.

Originally in 1948 there was supposed to be a new country formed-- to be called "Palestine"-- consisting of what is now called "The West Bank" as well as Gaza. But it never happened, because those twoareas were occupied.

But not by Israel!

1. GAZA: In 1948 Egypt occupied Gaza and refused to let it become a new country (to be called "Palestine"). 

. THE WEST BANK: What was formerly called "The Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan" occupied The West Bank in 1948, refusing to let it become a new country (to be called "Palestine).

Eventually the Jordanians changed the status of their occupation of the West Bank-- from "occupied" to actually becoming part of Jordan! (Yes-- they annexed it and actually made it part of Jordan!)

The annexation:

The period started during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, when Jordan occupied and subsequently annexed the portion of Mandatory Palestine that became known as the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

The territory remained under Jordanian control until it was occupied by Israel during the 1967 Six Day War

Jordan didn't want an independent "Palestine"-- they wanted it to become part of Jordan-- and ruled by Jordan!

During the December 1948  Jericho Conference , hundreds of Palestinian notables in the West Bank gathered, accepted Jordanian rule and recognized Abdullah as ruler. The West Bank was formally annexed on 24 April 1950, but the annexation was widely considered as illegal and void by most of the international community. [6]

I'm sure she doesn't know that.

But my guess is that she thinks all of Israel is "occupied".

Correction-- if we're interested in actual facts, here's how that should read:    Israel  and Egypt  have been blockading Gaza . . .

The Gazans occasionally tried to dig smuggling tunnels into Israel, but they were dectected and the tunnels were closed.

They also dug tunnels into Egypt. When confronted they claimed they were used to smuggle in various products. Which they did-- but they also smuggled in rockets which they fired at Israeli civilian targets. 
Eventually (2013) the Egyptians decided to close the tunnels from Gaza-- here's how they did it:

To Block Gaza Tunnels, Egypt Lets Sewage Flow

GAZA  Feb. 20, 2013--

—The Egyptian military is resorting to a pungent new tactic to shut down the smuggling tunnels connecting Sinai and Gaza: flooding them with sewage. Along with the stink, the approach is raising new questions about relations between Egypt’s new Islamist leaders and their ideological allies in Hamas who control the Gaza Strip.

“Awful,” said Abu Mutair Shalouf, 35, a Palestinian smuggler on the Gaza side, watching workers haul buckets of sewage-soaked soil from the shaft of a tunnel flooded by the Egyptian military 15 days ago. “I don’t know why they did this.”
