First, a little background on who Sumaya Awad is from Canary Mission. Awad appears in this video from Under Fire.
Awad was reportedly a “founding member of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapter at Williams College (Williams). In 2014, while Awad was a “visiting student at Columbia University (Columbia), she was also an activist for SJP at Columbia (CSJP).
As of November 2019, Awad was listed on the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR) website, as one of their “SPEAKERS AND TRAINERS.
As of the same date, Awad was also listed on the Friends of Sabeel North America (FOSNA) website as one of their speakers.
In 2016, Awad was named as a member of the International Socialist Organization (ISO) and listed as a contributor for the SocialistWorker.org, a publication of the ISO.
The ISO, as previously mentioned, plays a huge role in SJP. Here’s her presentation, courtesy of Under Fire, with assorted anti-Israel figures, about liberation.
The old joke is that Arab Nationalist revolutions begin as Marxist and Socialist, and end as Islamist.
