Students at several Chicago and Boston-area universities awoke this week to find their campuses papered with posters exposing members of Students for Justice in Palestine as neo-Nazis and supporters of anti-Israel terrorism. The posters were designed by the David Horowitz Freedom and were placed in the early morning hours on the campuses of Harvard University, Brandeis University and Tufts University in the Boston area and at the University of Chicago and DePaul University in Chicago.
The posters reveal comments that student activists affiliated with SJP have made on social media praising Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and calling for the extermination of the Jews.
These statements include:
“How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough”
“Wow White Jews are so entitled LMFAOOO Please die.”
“Had to write about a leader for DCL class. Wrote about Hitler. Cuz he’s a boss.”
A second poster exposed Berkeley Professor Hatem Bazian, a co-founder of SJP, as an anti-Semite and supporter of the anti-Israel terror group Hamas. Bazian recently came under fire for an anti-Semitic tweet which featured a caricature of an Orthodox Jew with the caption “MOM LOOK! I IS CHOSEN! I CAN NOW KILL, RAPE, SMUGGLE ORGANS & AND STEAL THE LAND OF PALESTINIANS *YAY* ASHKE-NAZI.” He has also openly called for an intifada, or violent uprising, in America.
A third poster depicts the organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) as a puppet of Hamas terrorists. As has been revealed in recent congressional testimony, Students for Justice in Palestine is a campus front for Hamas terrorists. SJP’s propaganda activities are orchestrated and funded by a Hamas front group, American Muslims for Palestine, whose chairman is Hatem Bazian and whose principals are former officers of the Holy Land Foundation and otherIslamic “charities” previously convicted of funneling money to Hamas. Hamas is a State Department-designated terrorist organization whose explicit goals, as stated in its charter, are the destruction of the Jewish state, and the extermination of its Jews.
Aided by this funding and institutional support from Hamas, SJP has become the leading collegiate organization in the Hamas terror network and the campus propaganda campaign to smear Israel as an “apartheid” state. SJP uses Hamas funds to promote the genocidal and anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel, a form of economic terrorism which seeks to weaken, delegitimize, and ultimately destroy the Jewish state. Under SJP’s leadership, over 100 college and university student governments have considered adopting pro-BDS resolutions and over 50 have passed them.
As a companion piece to the posters, the Freedom Center will soon be releasing a groundbreaking new pamphlet titled “SJP: Neo-Nazis on Campus,” which reveals the depth and breadth of the neo-Nazi hate epidemic among SJP and MSA activists on American campuses. The pamphlet contains profiles of student activists who have used social media to advocate for violence against the Jews, to spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, and to exalt Nazi leader Hitler’s “final solution.”
The pamphlet and posters are part of a larger Freedom Center campaign titled Stop University Support for Terrorists. Images of the posters that appeared on these campuses are reproduced below and can also be viewed on the campaign website, https://stopuniversitysupportforterrorists.org.
