Stealth Newspapers and Posters Expose Jew Hatred on California Campuses
Campus hate groups and their links to Islamic terror.
In a stealth campaign to expose the malignant threat of Jew hatred that has invaded America’s college campuses, the David Horowitz Freedom Center distributed thousands of newspapers listing the “Top Ten Colleges that Promote Jew Hatred and Incite Terrorism” on three Southern California campuses this week. UCLA, UC-Irvine and Pitzer College were all targeted by the campaign.
All three campuses were named in the Freedom Center’s recent report “From Campus to Congress: Allied with Terror,” on the growing prevalence of Jew hatred and its ties to the Islamic terror organization Hamas.
“Jew hatred is no longer solely the purview of academic outliers, those institutions known for radical activism and absurdist teachings,” the report explains. “The Jew hatred promoted by Hamas through its front group Students for Justice in Palestine has now trickled down to infect less typically activist campuses in the heartland.”
The report also documents how the anti-Israel terror group Hamas funds the BDS movement on American campuses by funneling money to chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) through an intermediary organization named American Muslims for Palestine (AMP).
AMP is headed by the notorious anti-Semite and jihad supporter, UC Berkeley professor Hatem Bazian, the co-founder of SJP and its board is dominated by former leaders of the Holy Land Foundation which was successfully prosecuted by the US government for funding Hamas. Aided by this funding from Hamas, Students for Justice in Palestine is the chief campus sponsor of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel—a Hamas orchestrated campaign to isolate and financially strangle the Jewish state.
A poster included in the pages of each newspaper highlights the role that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has played in promoting the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. The poster features images of Rep. Omar and Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, accompanied by a notorious tweet from Omar stating “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” The caption above this image states “BDS: Finishing the Work that Hitler Started.” These same posters were also hung in public locations on the UCLA, UC-Irvine and Pitzer campuses.
“For nearly two decades, SJP has promoted Hamas lies and propaganda in order to establish a beachhead of support for anti-Israel terrorists on American campuses, resulting in a dramatic rise in anti-Semitic incidents and the harassment of Jewish students,” said David Horowitz, founder of the Freedom Center. “
“American universities like UCLA allow these terrorist allies to use their authority and prestige to lend this genocidal offensive an aura of respectability,” Horowitz continued. “Our campaign intends to expose SJP and other supporters of BDS as fronts for Hamas and to press universities to cease their funding and support of these organizations.”
The report also chronicles the role that U.S. Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) have played in promoting Jew hatred and bringing anti-Semitism into the mainstream. Omar was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim Students Association in her collegiate days at North Dakota State University, and has frequently professed anti-Semitic views and voiced her support for BDS. Tlaib is a graduate of Wayne State University, one of the schools profiled in the report, and has also promoted the BDS movement.
