Below is the Freedom Center's new pamphlet, "SJP: Neo-Nazis on Campus," which sheds light on the extreme depths of Jew-Hatred promoted by the organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). As the pamphlet documents, members of SJP have been caught praising Hitler, calling for a second Holocaust and wishing death upon Jews -- all while spreading the propaganda of the terrorist group Hamas, whose stated mission is to exterminate the world Jewish population. The pamphlet is part of the Freedom Center's campaign, Stop University Support for Terrorists.

“There are two components of the Palestinian war to annihilate Israel: terrorism and propaganda,” writes author Caroline Glick. The organizations that Palestinian terrorists have created and funded on American campuses, most particularly Students for Justice in Palestine, function as political and propaganda fronts for their parent organizations, which blow up pizza parlors and weddings in the Jewish state. The relationship between terror and terrorist propaganda is exemplified in the coalition of campus organizations which over the past fifteen years have employed funds from the terrorist party Hamas to launch an all-out political assault on the Jewish state and to create a climate of hatred towards Jews and students who support Israel on campus.
While Hamas operatives in the Middle East launch rockets at Israeli civilian targets and dig terror tunnels under Israeli kindergarten classrooms, their supporters at American universities have a no less sinister mission: to spread lies that portray Israel as a criminal state, and thus to justify its destruction. The terrorist movement on American campuses has inspired an outpouring of neo-Nazi hate by falsely portraying the Jews as “colonial-settler” occupiers of a fictional state called “Palestine.” Members of Students for Justice in Palestine even openly praise Hitler and wish for another Holocaust. Witness the following tweets from Nancy Salem who is an alumna of the University of Texas and was an SJP activist supporting the Hamas-inspired and funded Boycott Israel movement there.
“@DictatorHitler: How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough’ @PrincessLulllu @thearabgirl HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHA”
“@DictatorHitler: Gassed a Jew, I’m sweating #Heil’ OMG.”
“Have a safe trip Lulu. I love you baby girl! See you in 3 weeks! Kiss the Palestine ground for me and kill some jews! <3 #IMissYouAlready.”
Nancy is not alone. Yousef AlYassir, a student at the University of Houston who was a member of his high school’s chapter of the Muslim Students Association, shared his insights on twitter as well:
“F**K THE JEWS F**K EM ALL KILL ALL THE JEWS ATTA BOY HITLER”
In another tweet he mocked Holocaust victim Anne Frank:
“@WonkaTweets: I’m sorry, Holocaust jokes are not funny, Anne Frankly, I will not stand for them’ lmao.”
Samer Alhato, an activist with the St. Xavier University chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, and a workshop leader at a recent SJP National Conference tweeted:
“@BarackObama shut up about gay marriage and go kill all the Jews.”
Samer openly declared his support for the terrorist organization Hamas in tweets:
“YES I SUPPORT HAMAS!” and “Hamas does nothing wrong tho, and they’re always kidnapped by Israel and tortured...they’re a peaceful group.”
He has also informed his twitter followers: “I support Hamas and I send then money every month.”
Hesham Annamer, a student at the University of Tennesee-Knoxville and an activist with the UTK chapter of the Muslim Students Association, also took to Twitter to praise Hitler, stating “Hitler had alot of great ideas. We need a guy like that in the white house” and “I mean, Hitler wasn’t that bad of a guy if you got to know him. #unpopularopinions.”
Many more examples of pro-Hitler social media postings by SJP activists can be found in the Canary Mission’s recent report on SJP and the Holocaust.
There has been no condemnation of Hamas by Students for Justice in Palestine or the Muslim Students Association because both are creations of the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization that translated Mein Kampf into Arabic in the Thirties and whose leader, Hassan al-Banna, was an open admirer of Hitler and launched the Islamic-Palestinian movement to “push the Jews into the sea.”
The founder of the Palestinian Arab movement, Haj Amin al-Husseini, was also notable for his Nazi ties and enthusiasms, and for his efforts to annihilate the Jews. Al-Husseini was appointed Mufti of Jerusalem by the British High Commissioner in 1921. In this role, he cited Koranic texts to incite anti-Jewish sentiment, culminating in a 1929 Arab revolt in Palestine during which many Jews were slaughtered. He was ultimately expelled from Palestine by the British, but allied himself with the ascendant German Nazi regime, and secured their support for his campaign to annihilate Palestinian Jews. In a March 1944 radio broadcast, al-Husseini urged: “Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history, and religion.” Al-Husseini had an infamous meeting with Nazi dictator Adolph Hitler in November 1941, and recruited an Arab Legion for him.
Not surprisingly given its origins in the Nazi-affirming Muslim Brotherhood, the Muslim Students Association, in addition to conducting a genocidal propaganda campaign against the Jewish state, also functions as a recruitment center for bomb throwing terrorists. Numerous former presidents and officers of the Muslim Students Association have gone on to high level terrorist careers with al-Qaeda and other jihadist organizations. The most famous, Anwar al-Awlaki was president of the Muslim Students Association chapter at Colorado State University and went on to become the head of al-Qaeda in the Yemen until he was killed by an American drone strike. Others include Omar Shafik Hammami who headed the University of South Alabama MSA chapter in the early 2000’s and later became a leader of the Somali terrorist organization Al-Shabaab, and yet another is former MSA National president, Abdurahman Al-Amoudi who was convicted on terrorism-related charges by an American federal court in 2004, receiving a 23-year prison sentence and a $750,000 fine.
The links tying the campus organization Students for Justice in Palestine to anti-Israel terrorists are also a matter of public record. SJP has a close working relationship with Hamas and receives funding and institutional support for its anti-Israel and anti-Semitic propaganda apparatus through a Hamas front-group - American Muslims for Palestine. The chairman of AMP’s board is Hatem Bazian, the co-founder of Students for Justice in Palestine and the leading spokesman for its anti-Semitic and pro-terrorist agendas [see the Bazian profile on p. below]. AMP is a front group for Hamas which is responsible for orchestrating SJP’s pro-terror and Jew-hating campaign and especially its efforts to enact campus resolutions promoting “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions” (BDS) against Israel. AMP was created by Bazian to funnel Hamas monies to SJP and its pro-terrorist coalition – some $100,000 per year. AMP’s principals are former officers of the Holy Land Foundation and other Islamic “charities” which were previously convicted of funneling charitable contributions to Hamas.
Taher Herzallah, AMP’s associate director of outreach and grassroots organizing, has made no secret of his pro-terrorist views, publicly promoting Israel’s violent destruction. “Israelis have to be bombed, they are a threat to the legitimacy of Palestine, and it is wrong to maintain the State of Israel,” Herzallah has said. “It is an illegitimate creation born from colonialism and racism.” Herzallah has also said, “the only language that the state of Israel understands is that of resistance” and has proposed the establishment of an Islamic state to enable the use of “violent means to resist occupation.” In recent testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Jonathan Schanzer, a terrorism finance analyst for the United States Department of the Treasury from 2004-2007, described AMP as “arguably the most important sponsor and organizer for Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), which is the most visible arm of the BDS campaign on campuses in the United States.”
According to Schanzer’s testimony, “At its 2014 annual conference, AMP invited participants to ‘come and navigate the fine line between legal activism and material support for terrorism.’” He reported that AMP “provides speakers, training, printed materials, a so-called ‘Apartheid Wall,’ and grants to SJP activists” and “even has a campus coordinator on staff whose job is to work directly with SJP and other pro-BDS campus groups across the country.” Furthermore, “according to an email it sent to subscribers, AMP spent $100,000 on campus activities in 2014 alone.”
As a result of this support and funding from Hamas, SJP has become the principal collegiate organization in the Hamas terror network and the campus propaganda war against Israel. It heavily promotes the Hamas-endorsed and funded Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel, a form of economic terrorism which seeks to weaken, delegitimize, and ultimately destroy the Jewish state. Guided by the leadership of SJP together with its chief allies, the Muslim Students Association and Jewish Voice for Peace, at least 50 American campuses have passed resolutions endorsing the BDS movement against Israel and over 100 campuses have debated the issue.
SJP and its allies are also the leading force behind the rash of “Israeli Apartheid Weeks” which are held on dozens of prominent university campuses each year. These weeks provide ample opportunities to bring in speakers who support Hamas and the BDS movement, often as a means to drum up support for pro-BDS student government resolutions. The “apartheid weeks” often feature staged theatre demonstrations such as “mock checkpoints” and “die-ins” where students dressed in the uniforms of the Israeli Defense Forces are depicted detaining, harassing, and sometimes slaughtering those costumed as Palestinians. One of the key identifying features of “Israeli Apartheid” weeks is the mock “apartheid wall.” Meant to mimic the security fence that protects Israeli citizens from terrorists crossing over from the West Bank—and which has dramatically reduced terrorist attacks against Israel since its inception—these walls are plastered with Hamas propaganda lies meant to demonize Israel. This propaganda includes claims that Israel targets Palestinian children for slaughter, and fake maps that purport to show that Israel stole Palestinian land.
Less public but equally disturbing is the praise and commendations that SJP and MSA activists heap on Adolph Hitler. Using social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter, these student terrorist leaders joke casually about the Holocaust and killing Jews, clearly expecting little to no resistance from their peers. In conducting these malevolent anti-Israel propaganda campaigns—directed and funded by the terrorist organization Hamas—SJP and its campus allies illustrate Caroline Glick’s point that terrorism and propaganda are inseparable parts of the war to annihilate Israel. This statement is particularly true on American college and university campuses where direct violence in support of terrorist aims is rare but mendacious propaganda, psychological intimidation, and praise for Hitler’s genocidal campaign hold sway. The profiles that follow showcase the statements, actions and motivations of ten of the most ardent Neo-Nazis who are conducting the campus war against Israel.
A member of the Muslim Students Association at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, Hesham Annamer has shared numerous pro-Hitler and pro-Nazi tweets on social media and has also repeatedly demonized Israel and its leaders by comparing them to Hitler. He has close ties to the other members of the MSA at UTK, several of whom have also been exposed as neo-Nazis for their praise of Hitler on social media. Annamer ran for the board of the UTK MSA in 2016.
Annamer’s neo-Nazi musings posted on Twitter include:
“Hitler had alot of great ideas. We need a guy like that in the white house.”
“Tbh, Adolf Hitler was that nigga. On God them history books have a nigga fucked up.”
“@WhatTheFFacts: Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian, and had only ONE testicle.” All hail Hitler ”
“I mean, Hitler wasn’t that bad of a guy if you got to know him. #unpopularopinions.”
Annamer’s tweets comparing Israel and its leaders to the Nazis include:
“Netanyahu is a modern day Hitler.”
“Give it a few years, @netanyahu will be recognized as the modern Adolf Hitler.”
“IDF is the modern Nazi party…america is still riding their d**ks.”
“Which is very ironic because Israel is doing to Palestine exactly what Germany did to the Jews.”
“@MohanadBest germany funds israel because of the wrongs germany has done to the jews. Jews will do the same for palestinians one day.”
“Irony: Jews almost wiped out by nazis. Palestine almost wiped out by Israel.”
Annamer also used his social media accounts to share the racist thoughts of other anti-Semites once retweeting a tweet by fellow UTK student Mohamed Ali which read, “I feel so incredibly irritable right now. No idea why…Just feel like kicking a Zionist tbh.”
A Palestinian professor at UC-Berkeley, Hatem Bazian co-founded the Hamas front group Students for Justice in Palestine in 2001 to support the Second Palestinian Intifada, which introduced suicide bombing into the attacks on Israel’s citizens in September 2000. Since then, chapters of SJP have proliferated across the nation, and are now active on approximately 200 American college and university campuses. He also founded the Hamas front group American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) and serves as the chairman of its board. AMP funnels Hamas funds to SJP chapters on American campuses to aid the BDS movement to destroy Israel.
At an American Muslim Alliance conference in 1999, Bazian enthusiastically endorsed the infamous Hadith calling for the slaughter of the Jews, and advocated for the establishment of an Islamic state in Palestine: “In the Hadith, the Day of Judgment will never happen until you fight the Jews. They are on the west side of the river, which is the Jordan River, and you’re on the east side until the trees and stones will say, ‘Oh Muslim, there is a Jew hiding behind me. Come and kill him!’ And that’s in the Hadith about this, this is a future battle before the Day of Judgment.”
In May 2002, Bazian participated in a Middle Eastern “cultural assembly” at George Washington High School. Under his leadership, the event the was dedicated to extreme anti-Israel rhetoric including a student-sung rap song that compared Zionists to Nazis, which was accompanied by other students parading with Palestinian flags behind the performer. The high school sent out letters of apology after the event.
At a 2004 anti-war rally in San Francisco, Bazian called for an Intifada, or violent uprising, in America:
“Well, we’ve been watching [an] Intifada in Palestine, we’ve been watching an uprising in Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? How come we don’t have an Intifada in this country? Because it seem[s] to me, that we are comfortable in where we are, watching CNN, ABC, NBC, Fox, and all these mainstream ... giving us a window to the world while the world is being managed from Washington, from New York, from every other place in here in San Francisco: Chevron, Bechtel, [Carlyle?] Group, Halliburton; every one of those lying, cheating, stealing, deceiving individuals are in our country and we’re sitting here and watching the world pass by, people being bombed, and it’s about time that we have an Intifada in this country that change[s] fundamentally the political dynamics in here. And we know ... they’re gonna say some Palestinian [is] being too radical. Well, you haven't seen radicalism yet!”
More recently, in July 2017, Bazian retweeted an anti-Semitic meme which was originally tweeted by infamous anti-Semite Ron Hughes, whose account Bazian follows. The meme features a photo of a man presumed to be Jewish, with Hasidic style curls, with the quoted statement: “MOM LOOK! I IS CHOSEN! I CAN NOW KILL, RAPE, SMUGGLE ORGANS & AND STEAL THE LAND OF PALESTINIANS *YAY* ASHKE-NAZI”
A member of both Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at the University of Texas-San Antonio, graduate student Nour Rafati utilized social media to repeatedly joke about the Holocaust and Hitler, clearly both subjects of great humor for her, and to broadcast her hatred for Jews and supporters of Israel.
Her many tweets include:
‘I’m so glad I survived the Holocaust so that I could be here with you all today.”
“I <3 my Holocaust pic.”
“We have a really mean cat in our backyard that beats up the others and my mom calls him “el ya7oodi [the jew]” lol.”
“just deleted the jew lover and anyone that has anything to do with her.”
“RT @Christeen_K: Sometimes I just wanna slap a thousand Jews.”
“@Christeen_K have a safe trip habibtii! slap a jew for me ;)”
“Favorite this if you support Israel…so I can block you.”
“My blood boils every time someone says “Israel.” Can’t help it.”
“ew just passed by the Christians United for Israel table.”
“ew just listened to a Zionist talk out of his a** for 6 minutes #Idkwhy.”
Rafati also tweeted a meme featuring Hitler, commenting, “Hitler memes are the funniest.”
A student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and an activist with Students for Justice in Palestine and a member of the Muslim Students Association, Mohamed Ali has used his social media accounts to praise Hitler, mock the Holocaust, advocate for violence against Israelis and propagate conspiracy theories about Jews and Israel.
He broadcast on Twitter: “Had to write about a leader for DCL class. Wrote about Hitler. Cuz he’s a boss.” On another occasion he commemorated the dictator’s birthday, tweeting: “Today is Adolf Hitler’s Birthday, by the way lol.” He also tweeted an offensive meme featuring an imagined dialogue between Hitler and Holocaust victim Anne Frank.
Ali also expressed hatred for Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, tweeting:
“Elie Wiesel is a rat. I’m regretful that I read his book ‘Night’ in AP language 2 yrs ago & actually I felt bad for him. Shame” and explaining in another tweet, “he’s a hypocrite. Hes anti-Arab & anti-Palestine. He talks about his experiences in the holocaust but supports Israel’s genocide.”
Several of Ali’s social media postings encourage violence against Zionists and Israeli and concurring with Hamas’s position that Israel must be pushed into the sea:
“I feel so incredibly irritable right now. No idea why…Just feel like kicking a Zionist tbh.”
“I’m gonna start using ‘Israel’ as an insult. ‘Dude John just stabbed my dog & kicked my baby’ ‘Wtf?? how Israeli of him.’”
“I will never find peace for as long as Israel is in existence.”
Ali also endorses anti-Semitic tropes and conspiracy theories, such as the false belief that Jews and Israel are secretly controlling world affairs. His tweets on this subject include:
“[Israel] control[s] so much from the film industry to franchises to pentagon communications to Wall Street to White House lobbies.”
“I’m not surprised. America d**krides Israel so hard. They’re scared. Israel controls them.”
“Zion or Zionism, is the belief that Jews are the rightful inhabitants or Israel/Palestine. Lol Illuminati.”
“Most American politicians are nothing short of weak spineless pu**ies. They’re so far up Israel’s a** it’s almost funny.”
“Crazy thing is, Jews live all around. U dont see em cause they go to better schools than u, have better jobs than u, & are socially above u.”
An activist with Students of Justice in Palestine at the University of North Florida, Sara Mahmoud is an ardent anti-Semite who uses social media to wish death on Jews and Zionists, advocate for the Hamas-funded BDS movement against Israel, and laud anti-Israel terrorists such as Rasmea Odeh and Leila Khaled. Mahmoud also attended the 2017 National Students for Justice in Palestine conference that was held at the University of Houston and the 2017 summer school held by the Palestinian Youth Movement. She uses the alias Sarah Haj-Yahia for her Facebook and Instagram accounts.
Mahmoud’s anti-Semitic tweets include:
“Twitter banned me for saying zios should cho*ke but here’s my cute a** nails.” [Zio is a derogatory slur meaning Zionist.]
“can zionists die already.”
“i'm so frustrated right now lmfao jewish zionists are the f**king worst do not @ me."
“wow white jews are so entitled lmfaooo please die.”
Several of Mahmoud’s social media postings also praise anti-Israel terrorists.
Mahmoud posted a photo of anti-Israel terrorist Leila Khaled holding an AK-47 with the caption “Happy #InternationalWomensDay One of my idols Leila Khaled, a badass Palestinian Marxist, freedom fighter & revolutionary. As you can see it just runs in our blood.” Khaled was a prominent member of the terrorist organization, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and participated in two airplane hijackings.
On another occasion, she tweeted a pro-terrorism quote from Khaled: “‘The struggle of Palestinians has taken many faces. Armed struggle, intifada, and now both. Which means as long......as there is occupation in our country, the conflict will continue.’ Leila Khaled.”
She similarly lauded anti-Israel terrorist Rasmea Odeh who was convicted of participating in the bombing of a Jerusalem supermarket in 1969, a crime that killed two Hebrew University students. Mahmoud posted a flyer for an event honoring Odeh on Facebook with the hashtag “#Justice4Rasmea.”
Mahmoud reserves her most ardent hatred for Zionists and Israelis, making declarations including, “I need y’all to understand pieces of s**t like this American c**t are the majority of Israeli settlers” and spreading false propaganda about the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) including a tweet claming that “defend, as defined by israeli forces” means to “use palestinians as target practice, sexual assault 75% of children in custody, apartheid.”
An active member of Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR), an SJP surrogate, at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, Rawan Qaddoura has repeatedly tweeted about her affection and respect for Adolf Hitler. Qaddoura is also a supporter of the Hamas-funded Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. She ran a campaign to become president of SPHR at McMaster for the 2016-2017 academic year, but ultimately lost to a classmate.
Qaddoura’s pro-Hitler tweets include:
“everytime I read about Hitler, I fall in love all over again.”
“if I follow hitler on twitter, does that make me a nazi or.”
“I honestly wish I was born at the time of the second world war just to see the genius, Hitler, at work.”
Qaddoura has also endorsed anti-Jewish conspiracy theories on social media, and has demonized Jews and Israel, making such tweets as:
“‘@judeZAdude: The whole world is controlled by Zionist Jews and until you understand that, life will never make sense.’”
“i just don’t like jews lol #sorrynotsorry"
“@McDebida educate yourself on what terrorism is and then come tell me that Israel isn’t a terrorist country.”
“@BowenBBC @BBCWorld what of the people Netanyahu has silenced? what of the terrorism that he's done in Palestine? why does he have a voice?"
“‘I wanted to make a bio but zionist might steal it’”
Tareq Abdallah, Nancy Salem, and classmates at UT-Arlington
A student at the University of Texas-Arlington, Tareq Abdallah’s twitter feed is full of vile anti-Semitic tropes, threats of violence towards Jews and Zionists and adulation for Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Abdullah also maintains close connections with other UT-Arlington students, including members of SJP and MSA on campus, who express similar neo-Nazi views.
Abdallah’s tweets glorifying Hitler include:
“Hitler you my mf nigga ”
“Hitler is considered palestinian in my books.”
“Where tf is Hitler at.”
Hitler is the man of the match, he raised warriors .”
“If you could witness any historical moment, which one would it be? — Holocaust.”
Not content to merely praise those who slaughtered Jews, Abdallah has made numerous threats to commit violence and murder against Jews on his Twitter feed. He has also explicitly expressed his support for the anti-Israel terrorist group Hamas. These tweets include:
“I swear if I Jew gets within 5 feet from me at the protest and says a word, straight murder.”
“Gimme an AK and drop me off in gaza, I promise I’ll go on a killing spree, f**k Jews.”
“I wish some Jew would talk s**t about Palestine….then I’d have a reason to whoop his ass.”
“No fear at all #hamaswillneverdie.”
“Hamas is the true meaning of fighters who stand strong #FreePalestine.”
“Hamas all day my nigga adham.”
His tweets echoing anti-Semitic tropes including the idea that Jews are stingy include:
“@farahqadorable you just said 50k smh I smell a Jew.”
On August 13, 2014, Abdallah tweeted: “@islamisisevilny @_Kurdyy_ y’all are stingy af and Jew supporters, and y’all call yallselfs Muslims supporting Israel killing Palestinians.”
“Whoever said all Jews arnt bad people lied.”
“Cheap people <<< damn Jew.”
“#ToMyFutureSon dont be cheap its a sign ur turning into a jew.”
While a student at the University of Texas-Arlington, Nancy Salem was a member of the Hamas front group Students for Justice in Palestine. She has used her Twitter account to repeatedly praise Hitler, share jokes about the Holocaust and killing Jews, and spread virulent anti-Semitic tropes such as insinuating that Jews are money-grubbing and selfish. She also participated in the genocidal and Hamas-funded Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and frequently interacted with other anti-Semites and neo-Nazi activists on social media.
When one of Salem’s tweets advocating the slaughter of Jews went viral she was fired from her job of two years at an early childhood center. That tweet read: “Have a safe trip Lulu. I love you baby girl! See you in 3 weeks! Kiss the Palestine ground for me and kill some jews! <3 #IMissYouAlready.”
Other tweets of Salem’s include:
“‘@DictatorHitler: How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough’ @PrincessLulllu @thearabgirl HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHA.”
“‘@DictatorHitler: Gassed a Jew, I’m sweating #Heil’ OMG.”
“‘How was the copper wire invented? They threw a penny between two Jews.’ LOLACHAUST.”
“‘@DictatorHitler: If Moday [Monday] was a person he’d be Jewish’ @thearabgirl @wowreallywow ”
Salem also shared her messages demonizing Israel and also America as Israel’s defender.
Her tweets include:
“I can’t wait for the day America stops being Israel’s little lap dog and wakes up. #BigDreams #Inshallah.”
“Hamas is actually defending our people unlike the Israeli army who will kill anyone.”
She also tweeted images of signs she made for an anti-Israel protest which read
“Israel Is Real Terrorism,” and “Dear USA, your 9/11 is our 24/7.” A third sign accused Israel of being an apartheid state.
Abdallah’s and Salem’s neo-Nazi sentiments are not uncommon among their classmates at UT-Arlington, many of whom have stated similar thoughts on their social media accounts.
One such classmate is Heba Asi, an activist with SJP and MSA at UT-Arlington and a supporter of the Hamas-funded BDS movement against Israel. Asi is also related to Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist Mohammed Assi, her cousin, who participated in the bombing of a Tel Aviv bus that wounded 28 civilians and was later honored by Hamas and PIJ after being killed by Israeli special forces.
Asi has made anti-Semitic and pro-Hamas comments on twitter including:
“I’m all for the destruction of the Zionist state Israel and 100% pro hamas.”
“Any one who isn’t pro hamas has either never been to Palestine, uneducated, or a Zionist.”
“I hope anyone who is for the zionist acts in palestine, burn in hell!”
“@Dino94 hahaha calling a palestinian a Jew is like calling a black person the N word!”
“I honestly dont feel that sypathetic about the holocaust..#SorryNotSorry.”
Dannah Mahmoud, an activist with SJP and MSA at UT-Arlington, also repeatedly expressed support for Hamas and hatred and disgust for the Jews on social media, including tweeting that her favorite “Arabic curse” is “Allah yikhrab beit il yahood [May Allah destroy the homes of the Jews].”
Other tweets from Mahmoud include:
“Falasteen ibladna wil yahood ichlabna [Palestine is our land and the Jews are our dogs].”
“Reading about palestine really depresses the f**kin hell out of me. Allah yil3an il yahood [May Allah curse the Jews].”
“@3bdElMassi7318 @CNN 100% it doesn’t. But you’ll never hear that from the yahood [Jews] who control the media.”
“Every thing Israel claims as its own is stolen from Arabs. Land, culture, food etc. thats the problem when youre scum with nothing of ur own.”
“‘@BeardoTweets: Blaming Hamas for firing rockets is like blaming a woman for punching her rapist. #FreeGaza #GazaUnderAttack’ accurate af.”
“Israel has been terrorizing Palestinians way before Hamas was even there now they just have a scapegoat.”
Other members of SJP at UT-Arlington shared similar thoughts, denying or joking about the existence of the Holocaust. These include Ismail Said Aboukar, also a member of MSA, who tweeted “#LiesToldInSchool the holocaust” and Mariam Ghanem who tweeted “Lol let’s stuff some Jews in the oven.”
A student at Portland State University and a member of an SJP-affiliated group called Students United for Palestinian Equal Rights (SUPER), Hanna (also known as Johnny) Eid supports the Hamas-funded BDS movement against Israel. He has repeatedly joked about the Holocaust on social media and has made anti-Semitic comments and demonized Israel, Jews, and Zionists.
When asked questions through the social media app, ask.fm, Eid often responded with horrific anti-Semitic answers.
He responded to the question, “What was the last thing you made with your own hands?” with the answer, “A furnace for Jews.” And when asked “What habit that others have annoys you most?,” he responded, “Being Jewish.”
Eid also tweeted jokes about the Holocaust including, “Put hide and seek in the Olympics and Anne Frank would get last. She’ll be like ‘I did nazi that one coming.’” When someone tweeted in response, “Allah yo5ith il yahood.” [Translation: “May Allah annihilate the Jews”] Eid retweeted that proclamation.
Using the social media app Vine, Eid also shared videos and songs mocking Jewish deaths in the Holocast. One of these was a video called “If Hitler was a pop singer” which featured footage of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler giving a speech accompanied by a song which included the lyrics: “Stop, wait a minute. Heat the oven, put the Jews in it. This is that Auschwitz, that…”
Eid also revined a video named “I got the Jews” which featured lyrics stating “I got the Jews” over image of another Hitler speech.
Other social media postings of Eid’s vilified Zionists including:
“Zionism-the functioning ideology of Israel-is at the zenith of white supremacist settler colonialism.”
“@jamielhilalsk8 Zionism is the new fascism.”
“Israel has claims to Palestine if you believe in fairy tales (torah and bible).”
“I don’t give a flying f**k if it makes you uncomfortable, what those hook nosed israeli f**ks are doing is wrong and is a holocaust.”
A student at Rutgers University and an activist with Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), Mohamad Habehh has used his social media accounts to repeatedly joke about atrocities committed during the Holocaust, share Hitler’s purported wisdom, and spread hatred and negative stereotypes about Jews. In spite of his bigoted and anti-Semitic views, Habehh posted on Facebook in April of 2017 that he was elected as a Diversity Senator to Rutgers Student Government Association. Habehh is also active with the New Jersey chapter of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), a Hamas front-group founded by Hamas-supporting Berkeley professor Hatem Bazian.
Habehh’s tweets minimizing the Holocaust and mocking its victims include:
“Hitler said in his book my struggle: I could have killed all the Jews in the world but left some for you to see why I was eliminating them.”
“‘How many jews can you fit in a VW Beetle? 54 2 in the front 2 in the back 50 in the ashtray’ DONE.”
“Zionist occupation is worse than anything Hitler ever did. The Holocaust isn't comparable to All the oppression we've been thru.”
Habehh also made numerous anti-Semitic tweets disparaging and stating his hatred for the Jews. These include:
“Yahood = khara [Jews = s**t] Don't @ me.”
“If you want to be a fag go join Judaism they have a bunch of fags over there you’d feel at home.”
“I heard most Jews have cheese growing out of their armpits.”
“But seriously Jews do smell.”
Many of Habehh’s tweets also threaten violence against Jews and Israel or state his support for the anti-Israel terror group Hamas:
“‘People used to make me feel ashamed to say I like Hamas in the past. But now I happily say it ’ I've always said it tbh.”
“Walich if you knew anything about Hamas you’d know they ARE GAZA the sons and men of Gaza.”
“Hamas should make me their official PR dude."
“I have a perfect plan to get the yahood out of Palestine Send me.”
“If i ever got the chance to go to Palestine, especially if it's during an intifada, I’d drop everything for it.”
