Karen Kingston Warns That Joe Biden’s Executive Order Makes Crimes Against Humanity Mandatory

Joe Biden and his puppet masters have been working overtime to not only destroy America but humanity as we know it. One glaring example is his recent Executive Order that brings transhumanism out from the shadows into the forefront of American policy.

During last week’s episode of In The Foxhole, Karen Kingston and I discussed the Alleged President’s EO, which should terrify you. Not only is this a transhumanist nightmare, but it’s literally stripping you of your bodily autonomy, your right to informed consent, and, ultimately, your rights provided for you in the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Here’s a segment of our conversation that I wanted to highlight for you that reveals the utter depravity of what the US Federal Government wants to do to you.

(Natural News) An executive order (EO) by President Joe Biden called for natural biology to be programmed “like computers” – a clear push for transhumanism under the guise of public health.

On Sept. 12, Biden signed EO 14081 which sought to bolster the U.S. biotechnology industry. It proposed the use of biotechnology to “aid” human health, citing the role of such biotechnologies during the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the vital role of biotechnology and biomanufacturing in developing and producing life-saving diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines that protect Americans and the world,” the EO stated. “The power of these technologies is most vivid at the moment in the context of human health.”

Given this, EO 14081 called on the secretary of health and human services to “submit a report assessing how to use biotechnology … to achieve medical breakthroughs, reduce the overall burden of disease, and improve health outcomes.” According to the edict, the report “shall identify high-priority basic research and technology development needs … [alongside] recommendations for actions to enhance biosafety and biosecurity to reduce risk throughout the biotechnology R&D and biomanufacturing lifecycles.”

The EO also mandated the establishment of a “Data for the Bioeconomy Initiative,” which requires “biological data sets” – including gene-related information deemed critical for social advances. In line with this, it called for a “plan to fill any data gaps” and to “make new and existing public data findable and “accessible.”

EO 14081 tried to allay the fears of critics by implementing a “data-protection plan” to mitigate security and privacy risks. However, the initiative raises the question of whether and how individuals’ genomic information might be publicly disclosed, and whether it would be done so only with informed consent.

“Biden’s call for the ‘programming’ of biology the way we program software, if applied to humans, would facilitate [the] transhumanist vision of the creation of ‘superhumans’ through various kinds of technology, including biotechnology,” wrote Emily Mangiaracina for LifeSiteNews.

EO echoes “hackable humans” concept from Yuval Noah Harari

Biden’s transhumanist EO 14081 oddly echoed the concept of hackable humans promoted by Israeli intellectual Yuval Noah Harari.

“Today, we have the technology to hack human beings on a massive scale,” said Harari, a lead advisor for the World Economic Forum (WEF). “Everything is being digitalized [and] monitored.”

According to Harari, the pandemic serves as a chance to bring hackable humans closer to reality thanks to the COVID-19 vaccines, which he branded as tools to facilitate “surveillance under the skin.”

“The vaccine will help us, of course. It will make things more manageable, [such as] surveillance. People could look back in a hundred years and identify the [COVID-19] pandemic as the moment when a regime of surveillance took over – especially surveillance under the skin,” he said. (Related: Yuval Noah Harari: Humans are now HACKABLE ANIMALS thanks to vaccines.)

“This ability to hack human beings, to go under the skin, collect biometric data, analyze it and understand people better than they understand themselves … is the most important event of the 21st century.”

During a separate lecture, the WEF advisor explained how this ability to hack humans can be achieved.

“Biological knowledge, multiplied by computing power, multiplied by data – equals the ability to hack humans. If you know enough biology and you have enough computing power and data – you can hack my body, my brain, and my life,” he said.

“In the past, many tyrants and governments wanted to do it. But nobody understood biology well enough, and nobody had enough computing power and data to hack millions of people. Neither the Gestapo nor the KGB could do it. But soon, at least some corporations and governments will be able to systematically hack all the people.”

ORGAN FACTORIES: Israeli company develops “artificial womb technology” to synthetically grow human embryos for organ harvesting

(Natural News) Who needs aborted babies for organ and tissue harvesting when you can just create an unlimited amount of embryonic human life in a petri dish? This is what an Israeli firm called Renewal Bio is reportedly now doing.

Piggy-backing off a similar concept that was unveiled by a research team at the University of Cambridge, researchers at Renewal Bio say they are currently in the process of developing human embryos from stem cells using “artificial womb technology.”

According to reports, these stem cells already produce beating hearts, intestinal tracts, and even brains, meaning they are human. But they skip the process of having to go into a woman’s womb and tear an actual baby limb from limb in order to extract the desired body parts. (Related: Remember when the University of Pittsburgh was caught harvesting the organs of live babies?)

Renewal Bio says the goal of the project is to create a steady supply of human baby tissue for organ transplants and other “anti-aging procedures,” to quote CBN News.

Instead of requiring the natural combination of sperm, egg, and fertilization, the company’s stem cell technology allows babies to be created and assembled artificially outside the womb.

“These people are creating human beings in a petri dish,” writes Jazz Shaw for Hot Air. “There’s just no way to put this in a kinder fashion.”

“Does the fact that there was no egg or sperm involved in the process make that any less true? Is the resultant embryo any less of a human being because of that technicality?”

Humans artificially manufactured using stem cells still show brain activity, feel pain

It should be noted that despite the synthetic nature of this outside-the-womb human construction process, the end result is still a real-life baby. That baby’s home, however, is not a womb but rather a laboratory in Israel.

Like naturally produced babies, these stem cell babies have a beating heart and a brain that produces brain waves. They feel pain, too, which makes this technology no better than using aborted and live-born babies for tissue extraction and organ harvesting.

“Up until now, there has never been a human being ‘produced’ that didn’t develop in the old-fashioned way, even in the case of in vitro fertilization,” Shaw explains.

“A female’s egg is fertilized by a male’s sperm and the resultant embryo grows in the womb until the baby is ready to be born. It’s the only way and it’s how the process worked as designed by God or evolution, depending on your preferences.”

By recreating the process using a petri dish rather than a womb, Renewal Bio scientists are playing God, which begs the question: are we really okay with allowing this?

Has the world become so desensitized to evil that we simply turn a blind eye to the latest news about the quest by the globalists for immortality? Are we really going to allow these vampires to keep destroying and exploiting human life as they pursue living forever via the blood and body parts of innocent human life?

“The primary advantage of doing this, at least in medical terms, is that the organs could be grown from your own stem cells with your own DNA,” Shaw writes. “That means that the organ would not be rejected if it’s transplanted into you.”

“But that baby is basically your clone. The two of you would be identical. If you badly needed a transplant and the doctors came and offered this procedure to you, would you agree to allow a miniature version of yourself to be brought into the world only to be destroyed so that you could survive a bit longer? I think I’d have a serious problem with that.”

Of course. Hatred of Israel is increasingly not just taken for granted, but required on the Left. The Fetterman camp was probably hoping that no one would notice the inconsistency.

“Fetterman Says He’s a Friend of Israel. His Art Gallery Raises Questions.” By Chuck Ross, Washington Free Beacon, September 13, 2022:

On the campaign trail, Pennsylvania lieutenant governor John Fetterman touts his “unwavering” support for Israel. But the Senate hopeful operates a nonprofit that hosted an anti-Israel art exhibit that demonized Israel as an “apartheid state” and spread slanderous falsehoods about the Jewish State.

Fetterman’s gallery, UnSmoke Systems, hosted an exhibit in 2012 titled “I Am Palestine,” featuring a so-called apartheid wall that condemns the 440-mile Israeli-built barrier separating Israel from the West Bank following a wave of Palestinian suicide bombings launched from the territory that left roughly 700 Israeli civilians dead.

The artists featured in the exhibit claimed in a statement accompanying the project that Israel built the wall “under the guise of security while stealing more Palestinian land and resources.”…

Fetterman’s campaign defended the gallery exhibit and his views on Israel, telling the Washington Free Beacon that Fetterman “is and always has been a pro-Israel Democrat.”…

Fetterman’s gallery, which is supported by his nonprofit Braddock Redux, also commissioned a mural in 2008 entitled “Three Boys Living in the Shadow of the Separation Wall” from an artist, Swoon, who is a prominent anti-Israel activist and has called for a cultural boycott of the Jewish state.

One of the artists featured in the 2012 exhibit, Karina Goulordava, served at the time as vice president of the University of Pittsburgh chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, a group that “disseminates anti-Israel propaganda often laced with inflammatory and at times combative rhetoric,” according to the Anti-Defamation League. The student group often uses apartheid walls at its anti-Israel rallies “depicting Israel alone as responsible for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” the ADL says….

NYC Pro-Gaza rally: ‘We don’t want no two states, we want all of it!’

On August 8, 2022, Within Our Lifetime, along with other pro-Palestinian organizations held a rally titled “NYC Stands with Gaza,” following the recent round of fighting between the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Israel. In the rally, Nerdeen Kiswani of Within Our Lifetime said: “If you stand with Israel, you stand with death and destruction.” She added that “resistance is not terrorism” and said that Palestinians have the right to “defend themselves by every means possible.”

She also accused New York City mayor Eric Adams of supporting the murder of Palestinians and Palestinian children. Protesters chanted: “We don’t want no two states – we want all of It.” “Settlers go back home, Palestine is ours alone!” “We don’t want no Zionists here!” and "The gate of Al-Aqsa is made of iron... It can be opened only by martyrs!" Footage of the rally was uploaded to Existence Is Resistance Instagram account and Freedom News TV – Night Edition on YouTube.

With unvetted open-door immigration, any and everyone is welcome, including those who support the Palestinian jihad (called a “resistance”) against Israel, which has become a pet cause of the Left. The fervor for the Palestinian quest to obliterate Israel is inculcated into its citizens from childhood, and now, the propaganda and hatred continue in Western countries. Woke Globalists have imported the same conflicts that mark the most troubled regions of the world.   

The Palestinian National Charter, Article 22, states:

Since the liberation of Palestine will destroy the Zionist and imperialist presence and will contribute to the establishment of peace in the Middle East, the Palestinian people look for the support of all the progressive and peaceful forces and urge them all, irrespective of their affiliations and beliefs, to offer the Palestinian people all aid and support in their just struggle for the liberation of their homeland.

The Muslim Brotherhood offshoot Hamas includes in its “Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement”:

Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it” (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).

Islamic Jihad also has an “internal charter” that views Palestine as sacred, and armed struggle as the only means to liberate it. The struggle is directed against “the triple heresy and oppression of the West, the Arab regimes, and Israel.”

Historically, Jerusalem was never holy to Muslims. It is not even mentioned in the Qur’an; Muslims turn to Mecca to pray. As Morton Klein, President of the Zionist Organization of America, explains:

In the seventh century, the Damascus-based Umayyad rulers built up Jerusalem as a counter-weight and hajj pilgrimage alternative to Mecca, where their political rivals were. This is when the important Muslim shrines, the Dome of the Rock (691 CE) and, later, the Al-Aqsa Mosque (705 CE), were intentionally built on the site of the destroyed biblical Jewish temples –– a time-honored practice to physically signal the predominance of Islam.

Muslims have their own shrines in Saudi Arabia and Iran.

If Hamas, Palestinian jihad, or Hizballah launches attacks against Israel, and Israel defends itself, protests, sometimes violent ones, have begun in America and other Western countries.

On one hand, these pro-Palestinian supporters take advantage of the freedom of speech and expression to intimidate people and spread antisemitic hatred. On the other hand, anyone who calls out their hate, incitement, and encouragement of “martyrdom” in the name of Islam is called “Islamophobic.”

VIDEO: Vera Sharav: Preserving the Nuremberg Code

As the world is approaching the 75th anniversary of the Nuremberg Code, it is becoming apparent that now, of all times, this achievement of humanity is coming under the greatest distress worldwide since it was written down. 

In this interview with The New American, Vera Sharav, a Holocaust survivor and a prominent human rights advocate, draws parallels between the ideologies and practices put in place in Nazi Germany and those practiced by the modern global elites. Both are rooted in the teachings of eugenics, which divide people into two categories: the elites and those considered inferior and not worthy of living. As a result, both the medical experiments carried out by Nazi physicians on Jews during the Holocaust and the mass vaccination campaign against Covid have a common goal: depopulation. 

The forces looking to depopulate the world are many and powerful. Yet it is within people’s power to defeat them, said Sharav.

The Lethal Indoctrination of Children in Palestinian Education: How UNRWA-run schools incubate anti-Semitism and terror.

BY RICHARD L. CRAVATTS

Richard L. Cravatts, Ph.D., a Freedom Center Journalism Fellow in Academic Free Speech and President Emeritus of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East, is the author of the forthcoming The Slow Death of the University: How Radicalism, Israel Hatred, and Race Obsession are Destroying Academia.

Signaling yet another unfortunate reversal of Trump-era policies, President Biden was in Bethlehem in the West Bank on July 15th to affirm U.S. support for the long-aggrieved Palestinians.

During that meeting with PA President Mahmoud Abbas, Biden suggested that “Palestinian refugees deserve to live in dignity, to see their basic needs addressed, and to have hope for the future,” and one remedy for their condition, of course, is U.S. aid, namely, “an additional $201 million for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) to continue delivering critical services to Palestinian refugees in the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria.”

UNRWA, the UN’s division dedicated solely to the Palestinian refugees, has been the subject of much scrutiny and criticism, which is why in 2018 the Trump administration eliminated further funding for the controversial agency. That approach was a good step, since UNRWA, established when some 400,000-700,000 Palestinians were made refugees with the founding of Israel, has perversely served as a political and diplomatic tactic by which the hapless Palestinians have languished stateless, as if in amber, used as a hammer with which to bludgeon Israel by blaming the Jewish state for the condition in which these refugees, including millions of the descendants of the original refugees, now find themselves. The slavish attention paid to this particular group of refugees suggests that their importance is based on the symbolic import of their existence as Israel’s victims, thus the budgetary and organizational commitment to UNRWA’s operations.

Specifically, UNRWA employs some 30,000 people to tend to the needs of only 5.7 million people identified as Palestinian refugees (or 190 refugees for every employee) while The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, the division responsible for every other refugee in the world, some 59 million people, has only 18,000 employees (3277 refugees for every employee).

Maintaining the Palestinian refugee problem as a scab on the Middle East’s body politic is UNRWA’s principal role, but its influence on Palestinian culture and society is also profound, particularly since some 58% of its $1 billion annual budget is allocated to education programs. While its education mission statement purports to offer children a “quality education for Palestine refugees . . . for the teaching and learning of human rights, conflict resolution, and tolerance,” UNRWA’s schools have been shown to be incubators of hatred where Palestinian children are taught to loathe Zionism, Israelis, and Jews, to question the very existence and legitimacy of the Jewish state, to justify jihad and terror against Israel, to strive for martyrdom in the name of jihad, and to commit to a life of resistance, aggression, and terror against the alleged criminal Zionist regime.

This indoctrination, marinating Palestinian children in hatred from kindergarten through high school, has had obvious and tragic long-term effects on Palestinian culture and society. Children inculcated with hatred of Jews, Zionism, and Israel unsurprisingly develop into adults fully committed to jihad to avenge alleged wrongs against Palestine and Islam, explaining why, for example, in 2019 the Palestinians spent $343 million of the foreign aid showered upon them to pay terrorists who had murdered Jews and their the families gruesome bounties in a “pay to slay” program to effect the “liberation” of Palestine. It may also help explain why, as a survey by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) revealed, over 90% of Palestinians harbor anti-Semitic beliefs, and the Middle East at large is the most anti-Semitic region in the world.

How UNRWA’s schools are used in the indoctrination process of Palestinian children is revealed quite clearly in a study just released in July by IMPACT-se, “Review of 2022 UNRWA-Produced Study Materials in the Palestinian Territories: Selected Examples.”  The report audited textbooks used in UNRWA schools and found that children are being taught a false narrative that makes them the perennial victim of a usurping colonial occupier, the defiling Jew, and that liberation can only be obtained through a prolonged struggle and “resistance” to occupation—in fact, to the very existence of Jewish sovereignty in a sea of Muslim territory—is mandatory for all Muslims and that terror, and martyrdom, are an integral and noble part of the effort.

A text for grade 5, “Hurray for Heroes,” the report notes as one example, “praises Palestinian militant figures such as Izz al-Din al-Qassam and Dalal Mughrabi, known for leading violent operations against Jewish civilians; both are presented as positive role models. The UNRWA material requires students to read the text and identify the Palestinian ‘heroes,’ while suggesting: ‘we all hope to be like those heroes.’”

A UNRWA booklet designed to teach numbers to grade 3 students directs “them to a specific exercise in a PA math textbook which asks students to choose the correct number of martyrs in the First Intifada from a list of suggested numbers,” martyrdom, of course, considered to be a noble aspiration. Eighth-grade study cards reinforce this same perverse aspiration, “featuring themes of jihad, martyrdom, prison, and conflict. Such examples include phrases like ‘Jihad is one of the doors to Paradise’; ‘The Palestinians have become an example of sacrifice’; ‘The soil of Jerusalem began asking my nation: why does its flag not fly over her’; ‘The Palestinians are lions in fighting the enemies.’”

A grade 6 study card, the report found, “utilizes militaristic, nationalistic and violent imagery to teach Arabic grammar principles which encourage jihad and martyrdom. Such examples include phrases like ‘We shall defend the motherland with blood’; ‘The Palestinian died as a martyr . . .  to defend his motherland’; ‘The resistance fighter attacked the Enemy’s position.’”

The IMPACT-se report mirrors the revelations of the toxicity of UNRWA teaching materials found in a 2020 study by Dr. Arnon Groiss of The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, “Israel, Jews and Peace in Palestinian Authority Schoolbooks and Teachers’ Guides,” which examined some 400 textbooks and more than 100 teachers’ guides published by the Palestinian Education Ministry from 2013 and 2020.

The report points to a three-prong process used to teach children about the perfidy of Israel, including a “Delegitimization of the State of Israel and the very presence of Jews in the Land of Israel, including the denial of the existence of Jewish holy places;” the “Demonization of Israel and the Jews;” and an “Encouragement of ‘violent struggle’ for the ‘liberation’ of the Land of Israel, with no mention of peace and coexistence.”

While the familiar narrative among diplomats and the public face of the Arab street has long voiced support for the notion of “two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace,” the reality is that maps in textbooks used by Arab children do not even show Israel; in other words, it does not exist as either a geographic or political entity. So, the idea that children or their parents have been raised to think that reconciliation is possible between both peoples is a fantasy, something that apologists for the Palestinians blindly, and regularly, ignore.

“In none of the P.A.’s schoolbooks has any call for the resolution of the conflict peacefully, or any mentioning of co-existence with Israel been found,” Groiss wrote. “The ‘Zionist enemy,’ according to the description appearing in the schoolbooks, is wholly evil and constitutes an existential threat to the Palestinians who are depicted as the ultimate victim, with no shared responsibility for the conflict.”

“Moreover,” the report noted, “Israel itself is taught to be completely illegal and illegitimate,” and “The name ‘Israel’ has been replaced most of the time by the epithet ‘the  Zionist occupation’ so that children are taught that “the struggle against the State of Israel has thus become a struggle against Zionism that is perceived as a mythical and a wholly evil entity, which  creates feelings of fear and hatred.”

When in 2007 then-Senator Hillary Clinton reviewed some of the teaching materials used in Palestinian schools, she saw their use as being tantamount to child abuse, observing that “Children were encouraged to see martyrdom and armed struggle and the murder of innocent people as ideals to strive for.” 

And the Groiss report affirmed that assumption, suggesting that the lessons in the texts encourage and perpetuate both a justification for terror and the likelihood that it will continue to be used. “Reference to terror is more explicit in the newer schoolbooks,” the report noted. “Terrorist operations perpetrated throughout the years of conflict with Israel are presented [in words echoing the ghoulish sentiment of the NEA resolution] as heroic actions in the framework of the ‘revolution,’ ‘resistance’ and ‘self-sacrifice’” [emphasis added].

The report made it clear that unless incitement and the teaching of hate, both in classrooms and on the Arab street, are curbed, and educators make authentic attempts to improve the educational quality and the lives of Arab children — not just by denouncing the existence and behavior of Israel but through substantive, real change in what is taught and what the social, cultural, and moral messages are in that teaching — the Palestinian cause will be eternally hobbled by its own blind loathing of the Jewish state.

For Groiss, if teaching materials are not changed dramatically, children will continue to be marinated in hatred and no peace and Palestinian statehood will ever evolve. “The schoolbooks issued by the Palestinian Authority indicate, then, the essence of the narrative as far as the conflict with Israel is concerned,” the report noted. “It is learned from the PA schoolbooks and teachers’ guides that the education of the younger Palestinian generation prepares it consciously for a continuous and long-range confrontation against the State of Israel in order to achieve the final goal, which is the establishment of the State of Palestine that will stretch on the entire territory of the Land of Israel.”

As long as Palestinian children cling to that impossible fantasy, they have condemned themselves to further generations of disappointment, disillusionment, and a tragedy of their own making. And as long as UNRWA and the PA use its schools as incubators for hatred and indoctrination, Palestinian intransigence and hostility toward the Jewish state are bound to never disappear.

Abbas calls the pope to incite and inflame the Catholic Church against Israel

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2022/07/abbas-calls-the-pope-to-incite-and-inflame-the-catholic-church-against-israel;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The report below states: “Under the guise of concern for Pope Francis’ health, PA Chairman Abbas exploited a phone call with the pope to incite and inflame the Church against Israel.”

But Abbas really didn’t need to disguise anything. The jihadist Abbas is a close ally of the pope:

  • The pope’s first visit to the Holy Land in 2014 was to meet Palestinian leaders and children before visiting Israel, sending a message of what was to come.
  • A year later, the Vatican signed a historic accord recognizing a “State of Palestine.”
  • In 2017,  Pope Francis received Abbas in the Vatican for the formal inauguration of the first Embassy of the State of Palestine to the Holy See.
  • In 2020, the love-in between the pope and the Palestinians continued when the Palestinian Liberation Organization asked the Vatican for help over a possible “West Bank annexation by Israel.”

So what’s another phone call by Abbas to the pope, this time lambasting Israel using the vilest propaganda? The truth is that Christians are persecuted in the Palestinian territories, and they often get caught in the middle of the Palestinian jihad against Israel. The pope has demonstrated repeatedly where his loyalties lie, despite the persecution of Christians by Palestinian Muslims, and despite the fact that the Palestinians seek a one-state solution, that is, the total destruction of Israel, as is clear from the original charters of all the major Palestinian political organizations.

Will the pope at least quietly back away from Abbas’ incitement?

“Abbas incites Church against Israel in phone call with the Pope,” by Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch, July 26, 2022:

Under the guise of concern for Pope Francis’ health, PA Chairman Abbas exploited a phone call with the pope to incite and inflame the Church against Israel.

In their conversation, Abbas repeated the libel that Israel “attacks” Christian and Muslim holy sites:

”His Honor [Abbas] updated Pope Francis on the attacks to which the Christian and Islamic holy sites are being subjected, and especially the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

Palestinian Media Watch has documented numerous such statements that refer to the presence of Jews at these places as “invasions,” “break-ins,” and “attacks.” The statements also expose the PA’s antisemitic ideologies, declaring that the presence of Jews “defiles” and “desecrates” these holy sites.

Even PA Chairman Abbas has argued that Israelis “desecrate the sanctity of our holy sites”:

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: ”The Israeli occupation forces are committing oppression and arbitrary acts in order to erase the holy city’s identity, change its spiritual and historical characteristics, desecrate the sanctity of our holy sites – the Islamic and Christian ones, and pressure its residents, visitors, and those coming to worship there. The Al-Aqsa Mosque is being subjected to invasions every day.” 

[Official PA TV News, March 31, 2019]

PLO Palestinian National Council Chairman Rawhi Fattouh recently reiterated Abbas’ statement, when he stressed that Israeli/Jewish presence “defiles” Muslim and Christian holy sites:

PLO Palestinian National Council Chairman Rawhi Fattouh: “Jerusalem is ours, the Noble Sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount) is ours, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is ours, the Wailing Wall is ours. It is all ours. Therefore, we will not let the occupation defile these holy sites.”

Anne Frank Trust Invited Islamist Who Called for Murder of Jews

"Death to you Zionist scum."

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

The real lesson of the Holocaust is killing Jews.

Nasima Begum, who used to work as the spokeswoman for the Muslim Council of Britain, does not like Jews very much. Past tweets include heartfelt thoughts such as "Death to you Zionist scum".

This didn't stop her from getting work with the BBC or being brought on board by the Anne Frank Trust UK to train the “youth” in the arts of tolerance.

Despite the name of the murdered Jewish girl, the Anne Frank Trust UK was seeking trustees with "lived experiences" of "anti-black racism, disability, homophobia and transphobia" and was "particularly keen to address anti-black racism as a priority" as "highlighted by the Black Lives Matter movement". Those merely concerned about the matter of anti-semitism need not apply.

Organizations with Anne Frank’s name, but having nothing to do with her, Holocaust victims, or the Jewish community have proliferated around the world. These organizations, generally not even Jewish, have instead served as incubators of antisemitism in exactly this sort of way.

The Anne Frank Foundation in Switzerland funds BDS hate groups. An Anne Frank center in Frankfurt Germany compared ISIS terrorists to Jews. At the Anne Frank Center in Berlin, a Muslim guide compared Israel to Nazi Germany. The Anne Frank House in Amsterdam removed references to Anne's Jewishness, banned a guide from wearing Jewish clothing, and attacked Israel. An exhibit placed a photo of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon side by side with one of Hitler.

And yet this may be the first time an Anne Frank organization invited a speaker who had called for the murder of Jews. So many Anne Frank groups had tiptoed around it, but the Anne Frank Trust UK actually went out and did it.

"We are excited to welcome performance poet, producer, and creative practitioner, Nasima Begum, to our special workshop this evening.” the Anne Frank Trust UK announced.

Begum’s job was “youth empowerment”.

Not surprising when the Assistant Director for Youth Empowerment at the Anne Frank Trust is Amna Abdullatif who tweets enthusiastic support for antisemitic politician Rep. Ilhan Omar.

Under pressure, the British organization announced that Begum "may have views that are not consistent with our values" and promised that it would launch an investigation even though controversies over Begum had already been aired in the past and would have been known to it.

There is a reason that this keeps happening at organizations named after Anne Frank.

Anne’s story was hijacked early on with a play, The Diary of Anne Frank, by Lillian Hellman, a Hollywood Stalinist, who turned it over to Albert Hackett and Frances Goodrich, the Communist-linked married couple who purged most of the Jewish references.

Since then, Anne Frank has been reinvented in the form of various races, most recently as an illegal alien hiding from ICE, and another production that sought a “multi-racial cast representing many heritages.” The elimination of Anne’s Jewishness, much like the universalization of the Holocaust, presages antisemitism. Once the Jews have been replaced in their historical role, it becomes all too easy for antisemites to turn Jews into the new Nazis.

And their killers, whether the PLO, Hamas, or ISIS, into the new Jews.

Nasima Begum claimed that Israel's resistance to Islamic terrorism was "the Holocaust all over again" with "Palestinians" as the victims and "Zionism scum" as the perpetrators.

The Anne Frank Trust UK may find this sort of explicit wording vulgar, but it’s no coincidence that the same ideas have manifested themselves at the Anne Frank centers in Berlin and Frankfurt, at the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, and now in the UK. It’s what happens when the story of the Holocaust is reframed in terms of general principles detached from the Jews.

Or as the Communists who rewrote Anne’s story had her say in the play, “We’re not the only people that have had to suffer.” The fictionalized version of a dead Jewish girl declares applause. “Sometimes one race, sometimes another.”

Transforming the Holocaust into a general story about intolerance and prejudice all too easily becomes a partisan story whose broader lesson is the moral supremacy of leftist virtues.

And those virtues are routinely used to call for the death of Israel and the murder of Jews.

Rewriting the Holocaust as a struggle between the Left and the Right is itself Holocaust revisionism because it ignores the Soviet mass murder of Jews, the Hitler-Stalin pact, and the collaboration of western Communists, including Lillian Hellman, in that Communist crime.

Hellman had defended the Hitler-Stalin Pact and participated in the Communist-front “Keep America Out of War Committee”, making her a Nazi collaborator, and yet was allowed to play a role in transforming the story of a murdered Jewish girl into leftist agitprop.

While Hellman was suppressing Anne’s Jewishness, the Soviet Union was suppressing the Jewish elements of the Holocaust. True Jewish commemorations of the Holocaust were banned in the Soviet Union. Any discussion about the mass murder of Jews was tightly controlled. Even while it was covering up the Holocaust, the Soviet Union launched a propaganda campaign against the newly reborn State of Israel whose key elements, including the apartheid smear, are still widely in use among leftists, including those operating at Anne Frank centers, today.

Before Islamists were shouting, "Death to you Zionist scum", Communists were shouting it.

The Soviet regime’s favorite taunt though was slurring Zionists as “fascists” or “Nazis”. A Communist regime that had massacred Jews and collaborated with the Nazis originated the smearing of Israel, of Zionists, and of Jews as Nazis.  The latest such incident at an Anne Frank Center is the long legacy of the leftist hijacking of the Holocaust to justify the murder of Jews.

 

Israel PM tells Biden only ‘credible military threat’ will stop Iran, ‘words will not stop them’

Biden talked tough against Iran with Israel’s Prime Minister Yair Lapid. While his words were encouraging, his consistent reputation is not. Appeasement emboldens enemies such as Iran and mere talk is nothing but appeasement.

He is right, of course. Joe Biden is in way over his head.

Biden has been on a “peace tour” to the Middle East. The Hamas chief recently announced that the US influence is shrinking under Joe Biden, so Hamas must now build alliances with Russia and China. The Russian media has also been mocking Biden.

“Biden, Lapid agree to stop Iran nuke program, differ on how,” by Aamer Madhani, Josh Boak, and Chris Megerian, Associated Press, July 14, 2022:

JERUSALEM (AP) — U.S. President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid stood side-by-side Thursday and declared they would not allow Iran to become a nuclear power. They parted ways, though, on how to get there.

Biden, in a joint news conference after a one-on-one meeting with the Israeli leader, said he still wants to give diplomacy a chance. Moments earlier, Lapid insisted that words alone won’t thwart Tehran’s nuclear ambitions.

While Biden suggested his patience with Iran was running low, he held out hope that Iran can be persuaded to rejoin a dormant deal intended to prevent it from building a nuclear weapon.

“I continue to believe that diplomacy is the best way to achieve this outcome”, Biden said on the second day of a four-day visit to Israel and Saudi Arabia. He also stressed on his first trip to the Middle East as president the importance of furthering ties between Israel and its Arab neighbors.

Hours before Biden was set to become the first U.S. leader to fly directly from Israel to the kingdom, Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation announced early Friday “the decision to open the Kingdom’s airspace for all air carriers that meet the requirements of the Authority for overflying.”

It signaled the end of its longstanding ban on Israeli airliners overflying its territory — an incremental step toward the normalization of relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel that builds on the strong but informal ties the erstwhile foes have developed in recent years over their shared concerns about Iran’s growing influence in the region.

“President Biden welcomes and commends the historic decision by the leadership of Saudi Arabia to open Saudi airspace to all civilian carriers without discrimination, a decision that includes flights to and from Israel,” U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said in a statement early Friday.

Biden’s emphasis on a diplomatic solution on Iran’s nuclear program contrasted with Lapid, who said Iran must face a real threat of force before it will agree to give up on its nuclear ambitions.

“Words will not stop them, Mr. President. Diplomacy will not stop them,” Lapid said. “The only thing that will stop Iran is knowing that if they continue to develop their nuclear program the free world will use force.”…..

Doubling down on their lies and smears, and even making a buck off them. Amnesty International is beneath contempt.

“Amnesty UK to release ‘end Israeli apartheid’ merch line,” Jerusalem Post, July 11, 2022:

Amnesty International UK announced a new line of merchandise on Monday titled “End Israeli Apartheid.” 

The announcement was made by Kristyan Benedict, Amnesty International UK campaign manager for Israel/Palestine and Syria, over Twitter.

“New Amnesty UK T-shirts, briefings, and other merch to support the #EndIsraeliApartheid global campaign – more coming soon,” Benedict tweeted.

“Our campaign to help end Israel’s cruel system of apartheid against Palestinians has seen an excellent response from people who are opposed to racism and discrimination,” Kristyan Benedict, Amnesty International UK’s Crisis Response Manager, told The Jerusalem Post

“We expect the t-shirts and other End Israeli Apartheid campaign products to be popular. The first set of t-shirts will be available in the coming days, with more in development in partnership with Palestinian artists.”…

The US said attempts to label Israel as an apartheid state were absurd.

The NGO has also long faced accusations of engaging in antisemitism, though it fervently denies these allegations.

Palestinian Authority and Fatah giving ‘military training’ to 7-year-olds to fight Israel

This is jihad training for children. This is routine for the Palestinians, who run summer camps to teach children about a world without Israel. Islamic antisemitism is rooted in the Quran.

It is baffling that the Palestinian Authority continues to get away with literal murder, incitement to murder, hate, and propaganda, while Israel is accused of “oppressing” the Palestinians. In the view of the Palestinians (as written in the original charters of their leading organizations), there is nothing that Israel could possibly do to help create peace. The goal of the Palestinians is Israel’s annihilation.

“PA Security Forces give ‘military training’ to 7-year-old kids to fight Israel – ‘the sons of dogs,’” by Itamar Marcus, Nan Jacques Zilberdik, and Maurice Hirsh, Palestinian Media Watch, July 11, 2022:

In cooperation with Abbas’ Fatah Movement, the PA Security Forces offer Palestinian kids from the age of 7 and up military training in camps.

A video posted by Fatah on one of its Facebook pages shows and explains that in the “army camp” the kids “wear soldiers’ uniforms, eat their food, and are trained in military order and discipline.’’ The internet host presenting the report explains that at the concluding ceremony of all the camps “commanders of the Security Forces and a member of Fatah’s Central Committee are present.” He further explains that these camps are for all Palestinian children, regardless of political affiliation, because:

“Our battle with the sons of dogs (i.e., Israelis) is long, and we need a young generation.”

[Facebook page of the Fatah Commission of Information and Culture, June 21, 2022]

In the video, children are seen disassembling and assembling weapons. A song in the background stresses the significance of this training, revealing the ideology and atmosphere of the camps:

Lyrics: “Everyone raised their weapons and put a bullet in the barrel …

We are the national Security [Forces], we are the men of Al-Asifa

Fatah! Fatah! Fatah! We are its men!

We are the men of Al-Asifa, we do not fear death…”

[Facebook page of the Fatah Commission of Information and Culture, June 21, 2022]

Another part of the video further illustrates the values imparted in these PA Security Forces/Fatah camps. Through chants, the young children are taught to admire the terrorist who led the most lethal terror attack against Israel: Dalal Mughrabi. Together with other terrorists she murdered 37 Israelis, including 12 children, in what is known as the 1978 Coastal Road massacre:

Guide and children: “Dalal [Mughrabi] arrived in Palestine (i.e., led murder of 37, incl. 12 children)

She is equal to the entire world

O Dalal, they trained you

and had you carry a Kalashnikov [assault rifle]

They led you to the shore

to a self-sacrificing operation (i.e., terror attack)

Dalal trained girls

in preparing explosives

and hand grenades.”

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policies: A Danger to Jews and All Americans

And the threat extends to schoolchildren

BY ADAM MILSTEIN

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2022/07/diversity-equity-and-inclusion-dei-policies-danger-adam-milstein/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

This article was originally published in the Jerusalem Post.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) offices, officers, policies, and programming are being increasingly embraced in American institutions, from government to the corporate workplace. This is particularly true in education, from leading American universities to elite prep schools. In fact, one sampling of leading American universities found DEI staff making up an average of 3.4 positions for every 100 tenured or tenure-track faculty members and outnumbering by a factor of at least four the staff dedicated to helping students with disabilities.

The ostensible goals of DEI are positive: to promote the representation, participation, and fair treatment of historically marginalized groups. In practice, though, DEI, which is closely linked to critical race theory (CRT), has been deployed to advance a radical agenda that undermines fundamental American values by promoting equality of outcome over equality of opportunity, collective identity (race, gender, etc.) over individual character, censorship of opposing viewpoints over freedom of speech, and a victim culture that crudely bifurcates society into oppressors and oppressed.

Along with embracing other favored radical causes, DEI is also being weaponized against Jewish students, maliciously portraying them and the Jewish State as wanton oppressors. Thus, with the expanding number and power of amply funded and staffed DEI offices that, rather than thwarting the rise of anti-Israel sentiment and restraining hostility toward Jews, actually contributing to it, American universities are becoming hotbeds of antisemitism.

The rise of antisemitism on college campuses is continuing and has already been well documented. A 2021 survey by Hillel and the ADL found that one in three Jewish college students personally experienced antisemitic hate in the previous academic year. Jewish students regularly have to contend with the demonization of Israel and its supporters, obscene Holocaust comparisons and minimization, negative stereotyping, and other common antisemitic tropes.

According to a December 2021 Heritage Foundation report, “Inclusion Delusion: The Antisemitism of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Staff at Universities,” which analyzed the Twitter feeds of hundreds of DEI university personnel, there is a disproportionate hostility toward Israel among university DEI staff. Malicious charges they have levied against Israel on Twitter include describing the Jewish State as an “apartheid” or “colonial” state and accusing Israel of engaging in “genocide” or “ethnic cleansing.”

Instead of creating a welcome and inclusive environment for Jewish students, who overwhelmingly feel a strong connection to Israel, DEI officials are engaged in anti-Israel demonization that promotes antisemitism and legitimizes Jew-hatred on campus.

In one particularly egregious illustration of this phenomenon, Yasmeen Mashayekh, a University of Southern California (USC) student senator for diversity, equity, and inclusion, tweeted in May 2021 that she wanted to “kill every motherf***ing Zionist.” Despite this and other hateful messages in which she expressed support for terrorism and the murder of Israelis, she has not been disciplined by USC and was able to retain her student senator DEI position.

The harm that DEI programming and personnel cause Jewish students isn’t limited to higher education. It even extends to schoolchildren. A Jewish parent, Jerome Eisenberg, is suing the prestigious private K-12 Brentwood School in Los Angeles for engaging in a DEI-driven “scheme to transform the school under a racially divisive, antisemitic ideology that seeks to indoctrinate children to reject Western values.”

In recent years, the curriculum at Brentwood has taken a radical, racially divisive turn after it was handed over to its “Office of Equity and Inclusion,” whose “staffing had increased ten-fold in a short period of time.” According to Eisenberg, “the school held racially segregated meetings and encouraged students to treat Jewish people as ‘oppressors’ and discriminated against a Jewish group of parents.” When he expressed his concerns about antisemitic discrimination, the school threatened to expel his 8th-grade daughter immediately and ultimately effectively did so when they denied her from returning the following school year.

It is deeply troubling that DEI personnel and programming, which is ostensibly committed to combatting bias and hate, is actively contributing to antisemitism in the American education system. As I have repeatedly warned, though, antisemitism is not just a Jewish problem – it is an American problem. DEI policies may disproportionately target and harm Jewish students, but the DEI agenda ultimately seeks to undermine and replace fundamental American values and replace it with its own radical vision. As we’ve seen before, what starts with elites quickly spreads to society as a whole. We must combat these ethically corrupted DEI efforts before they do more harm to Jewish students and ultimately all Americans.

Pro-abortion Jewish organizations agree with Satanic Temple claim that “abortion ritual” represents “religious freedom”

(Natural News) More than 140 Jewish organizations, along with the Satanic Temple of New York City, are now claiming that getting an abortion is a form of “religious freedom” that is constitutionally protected and cannot be overruled by legislators or the courts.

On May 17, an event sponsored by “Jewish Rally for Abortion Justice” and supported by the Anti-Defamation League, publicly affirmed that “abortion access is a Jewish value” and that “banning abortions is a religious freedom issue.”

In early June, a south Florida synagogue filed a lawsuit claiming that the state’s new 15-week abortion ban violates the “religious freedom” of Jewish people. This is the same position held by the Satanic Temple of New York City, which claims that the “abortion ritual” is a form of “religious expression.”

According to Satanists, “birthing people” – meaning women – who belong to the religion should be allowed to freely murder their unborn children whenever they feel like it because this is a form of worship to their god. The Jewish groups agree.

“How have we not dismantled the government?” the Satanic Temple asked after the Supreme Court’s overruling of Roe v. Wade, calling the decision “illegitimate” and promising to “defy” it.

In 2015, the Satanic Temple filed a federal lawsuit in Missouri claiming that the state’s restrictive abortion laws violate their “free exercise” of Satanism. Five years later, Satanists launched a campaign called “Satanic Abortions Are Protected by Religious Liberty Laws,” and have since reiterated their position that Satanism is “the leading beacon of light in the battle for abortion access.”

“With Roe v. Wade overturned, a religious exemption will be the only available challenge to many restrictions to access,” tweeted the Satanic Temple’s official Twitter account on June, 24.

Ending someone else’s life does not qualify as religious expression

Frank Pavone, the national director of Priests for Life, stated in a recent interview that since abortion involves the killing of someone else’s life, it does not qualify under a religious exemption.

“Killing [of] an innocent human life … the government can, in fact, restrict [this act], even if someone is going to say, ‘My religious freedom requires me, requires me, in certain circumstances to abort,” he is quoted as saying.

Sincerely held religious beliefs that do not involve murder still qualify, but this is something entirely different.

“Nevertheless, the government can restrict someone’s religious freedom precisely out of an interest to protect others,” he added.

Pointing to several legal cases involving this issue, Pavone further explained how the government does, in some cases, have a compelling interest to interfere with or halt certain religious activities if they put the lives of others at risk.

“Based on the words in the Gospel that ‘they will handle poisonous snakes and not be harmed,’ some of these churches had snake handling going on in their services,” he explained how poisonous snake handling in the South had to be addressed by the government.

“For the protection of the lives of the congregation, the state came in [with legislation] and said, ‘You can’t do this.'”

Several churches challenged these laws at the time, but the courts upheld the government’s restrictions, recognizing that while all Americans have religious freedom, there is a “compelling interest and when there’s no other way to advance that interest, [they can use] the least restrictive means [to do so].”

“In this case,” Pavone added, “the state [of Florida] is asserting … its compelling interest, and it’s an interest in protecting human life.”

“A ‘religion’ with a baby-killing ritual is not a religion that belongs in a civilized society, let alone a Christian one,” wrote a commenter at LifeSiteNews.

APOSTATE Presbyterian Church USA declares Israel an ‘apartheid state,’ creates ‘Nakba Remembrance Day’ FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE “PALESTINIANS”

A dying church takes time to give Israel a kick

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The infamously antisemitic US Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) has gone further than ever in its provocation against the State of Israel. At its 225th General Assembly, it voted to declare Israel as an apartheid state and created Nakba Remembrance Day. The PCUSA casts no judgments on the Palestinian Authority’s Pay-For-Slay program, or with the original charters of the major Palestinian organizations, all of which call for the obliteration of Israel.

The PCUSA has an unsavory history of smearing Israel and actively supporting Palestinian jihadists. Back in February, the Stated Clerk of the PCUSA characterized the so-called “‘occupation’ of Palestinian lands by Israel as ’21st century slavery.‘” In 2014, Shurat Hadin (the Israel Law Center) filed charges against the PCUSA for having ties to Hizballah. According to the law center, the PCUSA “breached its tax-exempt status as a religious organization by violating of the United States tax code through its unlawful political lobbying and contact with Hezbollah, a US-designated terrorist organization.” That same year, the Jerusalem Post reported on a Presbyterian study guide that advocated for the annihilation of Israel and encouraged Holocaust denial. The PCUSA should be held accountable as an accessory to terrorism.

Beyond the Jew-hatred and devoted support of the Palestinians, the Presbyterian Church presented “Christians who support Israel as dangerous and a threat to Middle East peace.” Not the Iranian regime, but Zionist Christians. 

The committee also “passed a resolution directing Church leadership bodies to designate May 15 as ‘Palestinian Nakba Remembrance Day.’” Nakba Day for Palestinians means the “day of catastrophe” when Israel was born in 1948. The hate, violence, and rage against Jews began long before Israel declared statehood — a fact that the Presbyterian Church chooses to ignore.

Christian propagandists are useful idiots in service of the Palestinian cause of jihad. The flames of antisemitism have fully engulfed the Presbyterian Church. 

“US Presbyterian Church: Israel is an apartheid state, creates Nakba Day,” by Michael Starr, Jerusalem Post, June 29, 2022: 

The US Presbyterian Church voted to declare Israel an apartheid state and establish a Nakba Remembrance Day, as well as passing two other resolutions highly critical of Israel on Tuesday at the American religious body’s 225th General Assembly.

“Israel’s laws, policies and practices regarding the Palestinian people fulfill the international legal definition of apartheid.”

US Presbyterian Church 2022 Resolution
“Israeli Apartheid” compared to Holocaust
The US Presbyterian Church’s International Engagement committee voted overwhelmingly to recognize that “Israel’s laws, policies and practices regarding the Palestinian people fulfill the international legal definition of apartheid,” as they had determined that Palestinians were systematically oppressed through inhuman acts for the objective of racial domination.

The resolution claimed that there were two sets of laws for Israelis and Palestinians, which are preferential for the former and oppressive to the latter. It also asserted that Palestinian land and water were stolen for use by “Jewish-only settlements” and that Palestinians were denied freedom of residence and movement, living in “separate reserves and ghettos,” echoing language used in the resolution passed on the same subject at the North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP) state convention on June 18.

The church claimed that Non-Jewish Arabs living in Israel and the disputed territories have “an inferior status” and Palestinians are unable to participate in the “political, social, economic and cultural life of their country.”

“This overture is pursued with the hope it will lead to a peaceful reconciliation for the people of Israel and Palestine similar to that which occurred in South Africa when apartheid was internationally acknowledged,” the resolution explained as the rationale behind the vote.

“Christians spoke out in the 1950s against segregation in the United States and later against apartheid in South Africa. They must again raise their voices and condemn Israel’s discrimination against Palestinians and give a name to the crime against humanity that this discrimination represents, the crime of apartheid,” it said….

UN agency teachers urge jihad terrorism and murder of Jews

This has been going on for years; nevertheless, Biden’s handlers are cheerfully sending your taxpayer dollars to the UN to fund it.

“UN agency teachers urge terrorism and murder of Jews, report claims,” by Benjamin Weinthal, Fox News, June 24, 2022:

JERUSALEM, Israel – A shocking report by a watchdog organization on Thursday revealed that a UN agency tasked with, among other things, educating Palestinian students in places such as Lebanon, the West Bank and Jordan, employs teachers who promote terrorism and the murder of Jews.

UN Watch, a Geneva-based NGO, uncovered in its 49-page report that United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) computer teacher Nihaya Awad, who works in the West Bank, supported Hamas rocket attacks on Israeli civilians after last year’s war. The U.S. and the European Union classified Hamas—the Sunni jihadi organization that controls the Gaza Strip—as a terrorist entity.    

In one internet post, Awad wrote: “Greetings to the people of Gaza, Blessed victory.” A second post Awad wrote said “In the name of Allah, one victory after the other, Palestine will be fully liberated.”

Awad “encouraged Palestinian terrorists’ exploitation of child soldiers, in a May 21, 2021 post on Facebook,” UN Watch reported.

Awad posted the entries two months after a UNRWA director, Gwyn Lewis, praised Awad in a certificate of appreciation for her “fantastic efforts” as a “best performer” in UNRWA education, according to the report.

“We are proud that you are part of the UNRWA team,” Lewis wrote on March 23, 2021….

An example from Lebanon, where the U.S.-designated terrorist movement Hezbollah has great control over the state, showed UNRWA Lebanon teacher Elham Mansour posting on Facebook on May 11, 2022: “By Allah, anyone who can kill and slaughter any Zionist and Israeli criminal, and doesn’t do so, doesn’t deserve to live. Kill them and pursue them everywhere, they are the greatest enemy….All Israel deserves is death.”…

The U.S. and other predominantly Western states that fund UNRWA met Thursday at the United Nations with Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. They are expected to promise additional monies to fund UNRWA….

Moreover, Brazil has a significant Jewish community of over 120,000 people, well-integrated into all aspects of Brazilian society. It would be deeply insulting and distressing to this community to send a U.S. Ambassador to Brazil who has Bagley’s history of using ugly antisemitic tropes."

The Biden administration’s nominee to serve as the U.S. ambassador to Brazil spoke at length about the influence of Jewish money in politics, claiming the “Jewish lobby” exerts undue influence over the Democratic Party with its “major money.”

Elizabeth Frawley Bagley, a longtime diplomat and Democratic Party insider, is scheduled on Thursday to have her nomination advanced to the full Senate by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. But Bagley’s comments about Jewish money in politics—tropes long considered anti-Semitic in nature—are raising red flags among Democratic and Republican members of the committee, senior congressional sources told the Washington Free Beacon.

Bagley, in a 1998 interview, a full copy of which was obtained by the Free Beacon, bemoaned “the influence of the Jewish lobby because there is major money involved.” She went on to claim “the Democrats always tend to go with the Jewish constituency on Israel and say stupid things, like moving the capital to Jerusalem always comes up.” Support for these Israel-related issues are due to “the Jewish factor, it’s money.” The interview was conducted by a historian at the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training for an oral history project….

Bagley opened up about the “Jewish lobby” and its impact on Democratic Party politics in the 1998 interview. She was asked about “the Israeli influence” on the Clinton administration, where Bagley served as the ambassador to Portugal.

“There is always the influence of the Jewish lobby because there is major money involved,” Bagley said. “But, I don’t remember any major issues coming out on that, besides the usual ‘make Jerusalem the capital of Israel,’ which is always an issue in the campaign.”

Democrats, she said, “always tend to go with the Jewish constituency on Israel and say stupid things, like moving the capital to Jerusalem always comes up. Things that we shouldn’t even touch.”

“Jewish Democrats,” she continued, “were going to give their money to Clinton anyway and Jews are mostly Democrats on social issues.”

The “Jewish factor” is not about the raw number of electors who care about these issues, Bagley said, “it’s money.”

When questioned about these remarks during a May 18 confirmation hearing with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Bagley claimed they were the result of a “free-flowing discussion” with the interviewer.

“The language you used in regard to the Jewish community, Israel’s influence on our election, and Jewish money have me concerned,” Sen. Ben Cardin (D., Md.) said during the hearing. “The choice of words was fit into the traditional tropes of anti-Semitism.”

“I regret that you would think that it was a problem,” Bagley told Cardin. “I certainly didn’t mean anything by it. It was a poor choice of words, but it was something that the interviewer had asked me, prompted by something about politics.”

Bagley added that she is “very sorry about that choice of words.”

ANTISEMITISM AT GERMAN ART SHOW; CLEVELAND, OHIO MUSLIM “OFFICER OF THE YEAR” EXPOSED FOR JEW HATRED, PRAISING HITLER

Leading Art Show In Germany Displays Antisemitic Work

BY HUGH FITZGERALD

For understandable reasons, the German government claims to be and sometimes is, acutely sensitive to displays, public or private, of antisemitism. Included in the internationally recognized definition of antisemitism is criticism leveled at Israel that is not leveled against any other country for similar behavior. And especially to be censured as antisemitic are the grotesque comparisons that are made between the IDF and the Nazis. Antisemitic exhibits were present at this year’s Documenta, held in Kassel, one of the two most important displays of contemporary art in the world (the other is the Venice Biennale). A report on this moral disaster is here: “Leading Contemporary Art Show Opens in Germany Amid Political Storm Over ‘Antisemitic’ Exhibits,” by Ben Cohen, Algemeiner, June 19, 2022:

The top official tasked with combating antisemitism in Germany has criticized a leading art show that was opened by the country’s president on Saturday for failing to deal with the accusations of antisemitism that have overshadowed its production.

Speaking to the German news outlet Bild am Sonntag, Felix Klein — the German federal commissioner for countering antisemitism — commented that the Documenta art festival, which opened this weekend in the city of Kassel, had failed to dispel the impression that some of the artworks now on display promote antisemitic tropes.

It wasn’t just that the Documenta organizers and some of its participants had ”failed to dispel the impression” that some of the artworks on display were antisemitic. This was no mere “impression,” but an absolutely clear manifestation, of antisemitism

Mounted every five years and regarded as the world’s leading contemporary art show alongside the Venice Biennale, the current edition of the Documenta festival has been curated by Ruangrupa, a collective of Indonesian artists which supports the ‘Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions’ (BDS) movement seeking to isolate Israel politically, culturally and economically. The Bundestag, Germany’s federal parliament, passed a motion in May 2019 that decried the BDS campaign as antisemitic and urged the government to regard organizations advocating Israel’s elimination, or a boycott of Israel, as ineligible for state funding.

Indonesia is a Muslim country and Indonesians are, unsurprisingly, anti-Israel. This is not a secret. Once it had been understood by the German government that the 2022 show would be organized by a collective of Indonesian artists, did no one in the political echelon worry about what kinds of “artists” and “art” those anti-Israel Indonesians might select to appear in the Documenta festival?

One of the artistic groups participating in the festival, the Khalil Sakakini Cultural Center, located in the West Bank city of Ramallah, has repeatedly expressed support for boycotts of artistic events in Israel. The center is named in honor of Khalil al-Sakakini, a Palestinian scholar who lived in Jerusalem prior to Israel’s creation in 1948 and was openly sympathetic to Nazi Germany.

It is the official policy of the German government to oppose BDS and to outlaw any attempts to promote it. But when it came to Documenta it was asleep at the wheel. When did it find out that one of the groups taking part in the festival – a very great honor, one proving most profitable, in the art world – was a Palestinian cultural center named after Khalil al-Sakakini, a prominent Arab scholar who had been a Nazi supporter during World War II. Sakakini believed that Nazi Germany could “liberate Palestine from the Jew.” He wrote that Adolf Hitler had opened the world’s eyes to Jewish world power and that Germany had stood up to the Jews and put them in their place. This is the man after whom that Palestinian “cultural center” was named, the same center now showing its “art” from June to September to millions of visitors expected at Documenta. It would have taken approximately one minute to learn all about the unsavory Sakakini, but no one in the German government bothered. No alarm bells, no curiosity, no worry about Indonesian sympathizers with antisemitic Palestinians choosing the exhibitors.

One of the artworks being exhibited at the show was produced by a Palestinian group calling itself “The Question of Funding.” A series produced by one of its artists, Mohammed Al Hawajiri, titled “Guernica Gaza,” depicts Israeli military operations in Hamas-controlled Gaza as akin to the bombing of the Spanish city of Guernica by the German Luftwaffe during the Spanish Civil War — an atrocity that was famously rendered in the painting “Guernica” by Pablo Picasso.

The message [of this painting]: Israel’s army is what the Nazi air force was,” responded Leonard Kaminski of the German Antisemitism Research and Information Center (RIAS) in a post on Twitter. According to the widely-accepted International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism, “comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis” are antisemitic.

The Nazis, testing their new planes in 1937, bombed the Basque town of Guernica, where there were only inoffensive civilians, killing or wounding one-third of its inhabitants. The Israeli military, on the other hand, does everything it can to avoid harming civilians. The IDF sends warnings to people in buildings that are soon to be targeted, by every means possible – telephoning, emailing, leafletting, and making use of the “knock-on-the-roof” technique. Given that Hamas always hides its weapons in or near civilian structures – houses, apartment buildings, schools, hospitals – it is hellishly difficult to avoid all civilian casualties, but Israel makes great efforts to minimize them, even if it means allowing some Hamas fighters to escape.

Another artwork made light of Palestinian terrorism against Israelis. A graphic assembled by the London-based artist Hamja Ashan shows the silhouette of a chicken on top of a machine gun, alongside the words Popular Front for the Liberation of Fried Chicken (PFLFC) — an allusion to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) which gained notoriety for airplane hijackings and gun attacks against civilians during the 1960s and 1970s.

Various Palestinian terrorist groups — the PLO, the DFLP (Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine), the Abu Nidal Organization, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the PFLP, and others less known, as well as Arab terrorists acting on their own. have killed 3,500 Israelis, and wounded 25,000, since the 1948 war. This unfunny graphic of the harmless “chicken” is meant to belittle and mock Israeli anguish over those deaths – see, the graphic says, the PFLP is about as threatening to Israel as a “chicken.” Those Zionists, always making a fuss over nothing. What fun.

In his interview with Bild, Klein [Felix Klein, the German federal commissioner for countering antisemitism] deemed that the allegations of antisemitism leveled at the Documenta festival could not be “credibly dispelled.”

Not “credibly dispelled” is bureaucratese for what should be expressed more forcefully: “the antisemitism in these displays at the Documenta festival is both obvious and nauseating.”

Added Klein: “I very much regret that, especially after the heated public discussion about this.”

In his Saturday address that opened the Documenta festival, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier expressed discomfort at the persistent charges of antisemitism that dogged the show’s preparation, saying that a “boycott of Israel is tantamount to denying its right to exist.”

Steinmeier denounced BDS as “a strategy of exclusion and stigmatization that cannot be separated from antisemitism.” He added that he regretted that the dispute could not be resolved through “a direct discussion between the representatives of the Global South [since when did Muslim states come to represent “the Global South”?], the Jewish community in Germany and Israel.”

By showing up to deliver a speech at the opening of Documenta, German President Steinmeier lent the event an undeserved respectability, when the exhibits I’ve mentioned above — and there were others similarly unpleasant — ought to be the subject of German shame and chagrin. He ought to have refused to appear, and instead explained that he could not in good conscience have anything to do with Documenta because of the clearly antisemitic exhibits it contained and that its organizers refused, after objections were made, to remove it.

Steinmeier’s appearance at the show was strongly criticized by Volker Beck, a former Green Party parliamentarian who now heads the German Israeli Society (DIG).

“It’s a bit pointless to lament now that a direct discussion between the representatives of the Global South and Documenta and the Jewish community in Germany did not come about,” Beck said. “Documenta didn’t want to invite representatives of the [Central Council of German Jews], just plenty of BDS representatives instead.”

Those meticulous Germans were apparently not meticulous enough to vet the exhibitors before the show opened when they might have pressured the organizers to remove the exhibits that displayed anti-Israel messages amounting to antisemitism. 

So what should the rest of us do? Let President Steinmeier’s office know of your deep unhappiness with certain exhibits that were part of this year’s Documenta festival. Make another statement by staying away from Kassel. Don’t visit Documenta, don’t review the exhibits at Documenta, don’t praise anything at Documenta, and don’t buy a damn thing that is now shown at Documenta. And five years from now, when Documenta, its hour come round again, at last, is being organized, make sure such an intolerable result is not repeated.

Antisemitic Muslim 'Cop Of The Year' Tweets Discovered in Cleveland, Ohio:

Cleveland ‘Officer of the Year’ Ismail Quran tweeted Jew-hatred, praise of Hitler

The book whose name Ismail Quran bears teaches that the Jews are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

“Cleveland ‘Officer of the Year’ Under Investigation for Anti-Semitic, Pro-Hitler Tweets,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, June 20, 2022:

Cleveland’s 2019 police officer of the year is under investigation for a series of anti-Semitic social media posts that include praise for Adolf Hitler and the Hamas terrorist organization.

Ismail Quran is under investigation by the Cleveland police internal affairs unit for posting “inappropriate social media content,” a department spokesman told the Washington Free Beacon on Monday.

Quran has posted several anti-Semitic messages on social media, including a “salute to Hitler the great” and messages threatening violence against Jewish people, according to tweets provided by Canary Mission, a watchdog group that tracks anti-Semitic activity online….

The Cleveland police department hired Quran in 2018, several years after most of the public tweets were issued. Quran was presented with a belated 2019 officer of the year award in November 2021, more than a year after Canary Mission first exposed many of Quran’s anti-Semitic posts. At the award ceremony, the department said “Officer Ismail Quran has truly embodied the community policing philosophy for the Cleveland Division of Police.” The Cleveland police department is facing allegations it tried to sweep the controversy under the rug and ignore Quran’s bigotry. The officer is “assigned to administrative duties” while the investigation is underway….

When asked for comment on Quran’s posts, a Cleveland police spokesman informed the Free Beacon that the officer is under investigation, though it is unclear what the repercussions could be….

In October 2015, he stated, “Lol bum ass Jew tried to intimidate me. … Don’t try that shit with me.”

“The Jewish lobby,” he wrote in August 2014, runs “the USA.”

Quran claimed in an August 2014 tweet that the Hamas terror group, which routinely kills Jewish civilians in terror attacks, is merely “defending their land.”

In a July 2014 tweet, Quran wrote, “Fuck that Jew” in response to a message wishing an Israeli basketball player good luck. Quran’s tweet included a picture captioned, “LET ME SALUTE TO HITLER THE GREAT. He said ‘I would have killed all the Jews of the world, but I kept some to show the world why I killed them.’”…

Most of these posts were active as of June 2022, though many were deleted when reports about Quran’s rhetoric began to emerge. Canary Mission has documented all of them on its website.

Biden Appoints Supporter of ‘Intifada’ as ‘Ambassador’ to PLO in Israel

FDP im Wahlkampf: Christian Lindner zieht rote Linien für Koalitionen

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

After a wave of violence that saw repeated murders of Israelis, with guns and axes, among other means, in attacks that involved ISIS, but were praised by Hamas and the PLO’s Palestinian Authority, Biden is rewarding the terrorists.

 The Biden administration has settled on a series of steps aimed at boosting its diplomatic ties to the Palestinians in lieu of reopening the US Consulate in Jerusalem — a move it reluctantly shelved amid Israeli opposition.

The “opposition” consisted of telling Biden that if they gave in, the leftist-Islamist-RINO (right in name only) coalition government would collapse and they’d have to deal with Netanyahu again.

According to two US and Palestinian officials who spoke to The Times of Israel, US President Joe Biden will elevate Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Israeli and Palestinian Affairs Hady Amr to the role of special envoy to the Palestinians.

Front Page Magazine had the first deep background on Amr.

“I was inspired by the Palestinian intifada,” Hady Amr wrote a year after September 11, discussing his work as the national coordinator of the anti-Israel Middle East Justice Network.

Biden has now chosen Amr as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Israel-Palestine.

“I have news for every Israeli,” Amr ranted in one column written after Sheikh Salah Shahada, the head of Hamas’ Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, was taken out by an Israeli air strike.

Amr warned that Arabs “now have televisions, and they will never, never forget what the Israeli people, the Israeli military and Israeli democracy have done to Palestinian children. And there will be thousands who will seek to avenge these brutal murders of innocents.”

Hady Amr had accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing” and coordinated an organization that had accused Israel of “apartheid”

On top of that, Amr was essentially working for the Qatari terror state that backs Hamas and the rest of the Muslim Brotherhood. Since then there were numerous reports of his abusive behavior when meeting with Israelis and Jews.

So this appointment formalizes what everyone knew, Amr is there to advocate for the terrorists. At least Biden will stop pretending that Amr is there to handle relations between Israel and the terrorists. 

He’s playing for one team only. 

Amr will remain in Washington but will make regular trips to the region and work closely with the Palestinian Affairs Unit, which currently is a branch within the US Embassy to Israel and is housed in the old Jerusalem consulate building. But in a move aimed at again setting apart the diplomats serving the Palestinians from those serving the Israelis, the PAU will officially begin reporting directly to Amr in Washington, rather than to the US ambassador in Israel, the US and Palestinian officials said.

So Biden is essentially making Amr a kind of ambassador to the terrorists. But he’s not representing America to the terrorists, he’s representing the terrorists to America.

 

EXCEPT IF YOUR MUSLIM POLICE STATE New Jersey: Paterson renames street ‘Palestine Way,’ Linda Sarsour calls for ‘Palestine Way in every city’

There is nothing at all in this NorthJersey.com report, of course, about the relentless “Palestinian” jihad, or the genocidal incitement of “Palestinian” children, or the practice of passing out sweets whenever Israeli civilians are killed, or any other hint that the “Palestinians” are anything but a noble, oppressed people. The involvement of hard-Left anti-Semite Linda Sarsour is not even mentioned, but she was prominently involved enough to be among a handful of people photographed on a lift under the new street sign. Linda Sarsour is a rabidly antisemitic Islamic supremacist who has said that “nothing is creepier than Zionism” and has equated it with “racism.” She is an enthusiastic supporter of the “Palestinian” jihad against Israel and has even claimed that feminists cannot and must not support Israel.

Do Paterson officials care about her history of hateful, incendiary, and anti-Semitic statements? Almost certainly not. Would they care if they did? Almost certainly not.

“Palestine Way: Paterson celebrates street renaming in tribute to community,” by Hannan Adely and Rebecca King, NorthJersey.com, May 15, 2022:

PATERSON — The South Paterson neighborhood is home to stores, restaurants and offices with Palestinian flags and images of Jerusalem hanging on walls. Everywhere, signs of the Palestinian homeland are emblazoned on property names, from Jerusalem Pharmacy to Nablus Sweets to Palestine Hair Salon.

Now, visitors to the area will also find street signs. On Sunday, city officials celebrated the renaming of a five-block section of Main Street, from Gould Avenue to Buffalo Avenue, to Palestine Way.

“Many Palestinians call Paterson home, and this is the day we get to celebrate it,” said Councilman Alaa “Al” Abdelaziz.

The City Council voted unanimously in April for the street renaming to honor the city’s large Palestinian community and its contributions to civic life and business. A bustling street festival, organized by the Palestinian American Community Center, was held along Main Street to celebrate the occasion.

Vendors set up booths selling roasted corn, dresses, bags and more. T-shirts emblazoned with “Palestine Way” were available. Red, white, black and green Palestinian flags were passed out to attendees and draped from buildings and tents. 

“I wish we had something like this every year,” said Lina Ramadan, who was visiting from Jordan and hadn’t been to Paterson in 22 years. She used to live in Union City.

“I feel like I’m in my country,” she said. “Everyone is so happy. It’s very special.”…

Chants of “Free Palestine” and “Palestine Way” accompanied the unveiling of the street sign….

SOROS OPERATIVE APPOINTED BY BIDEN TO ASSIST JANKOWICZ

This was entirely predictable. Soros lavishly bankrolls all the Left’s pet causes, and censorship is its cause du jour. It would be surprising if his people weren’t involved.

“BREAKING: Official Co-Leading Biden Disinfo Board Worked for George Soros,” by Joseph Vazquez and Catherine Salgado, NewsBusters, May 6, 2022:

A member of President Joe Biden’s Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board has close ties to liberal billionaire activist George Soros.  

Disinformation Governance Board leader Jennifer Daskal has at least three connections to Soros. Daskal previously served as an Open Society Institute fellow “working on issues related to privacy and law enforcement access to data across borders.” Daskal also worked as senior counterterrorism counsel for the anti-Semitic Human Rights Watch. HRW received at least $32,106,746 from Soros between 2000 and 2014 alone. Daskal was also founding editor of the Just Security blog. Soros’ Open Society Foundations gave $675,000 to Just Security between 2017 and 2019.

Daskal’s involvement with the censorship board fits right in with the Soros agenda. Soros has been involved in funding a litany of so-called fact-checking operations, making the revelation of Daskal’s Soros-tie par for the course. Soros cash recipients includes The Poynter Institute’s left-wing International Fact-Checking Network, which decried YouTube’s “insufficient” censorship, and the U.K.-based Full Fact, which tried to swat down the idea of COVID-19 leaking from a lab in February, 2020 while knowledge of the pathogen was still rare

The fact that Soros has one of his former fellows leading Biden’s government-sanctioned Ministry of Truth should concern every American citizen. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas stated during a congressional hearing that “[o]ur Undersecretary for Policy Rob Silvers is co-chair with our Principal Deputy General Counsel Jennifer Daskal, in leading a just recently constituted a misinformation/disinformation governance board.” 

This indicates that Daskal will be exerting considerable influence over the Disinformation Governance Board policies going forward. It’s as if the pro-critical race theory and self-proclaimed “Mary Poppins of disinformation” Nina Jankowicz being named the censorship board’s executive director wasn’t cringe enough….

What Biden Doesn’t Want You to Know About Karine Jean-Pierre

Karine Jean-Pierre was born in Martinique, France on August 13, 1977. Like her parents, she belongs to Haitian ethnicity. Though Martinican-born, she was raised in Queens, NYC. Besides, Pierre has citizenship in both Haiti and America.

The activist went to the School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University. Later, she graduated with an MPA(Master of Public Affairs) degree.

EXCERPTS FROM: https://jewishchronicle.timesofisrael.com/karine-jean-pierre-who-endorsed-aipac-boycott-to-be-next-white-house-press-secretary/:

US President Joe Biden named as his next press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, a former official of the activist MoveOn group who endorsed its call on Democratic presidential candidates to boycott the annual AIPAC conference.

“When it comes down to it, AIPAC’s policies are not progressive policies. AIPAC’s values are not progressive values,” Pierre wrote in the 2019 piece, saying that the group’s failure to forcefully call out the Trump administration’s bigotry disqualified it as a venue for Democrats.

AIPAC, historically non-partisan, has in the last decade drifted apart from progressives on Israel policy. Most recently, it launched a PAC to directly support pro-Israel candidates for the first time; the PAC has so far given to more Republicans than to Democrats and has drawn criticism for giving to Republicans who voted not to affirm Biden’s election. It also is supporting the House Democrats’ leadership and about half of the party’s progressive caucus.

EXCERPTS FROM THE NEW YORK POST: https://nypost.com/2022/05/07/karine-jean-pierre-urged-dems-to-skip-pro-israel-conference/:

“When it comes down to it, AIPAC’s policies are not progressive policies. AIPAC’s values are not progressive values,” Jean-Pierre wrote in a Newsweek Op-Ed in 2019. “It’s time to call a spade a spade.”

In the piece, she blasted the conference as “severely racist” saying it has “become known for trafficking in anti-Muslim and anti-Arab rhetoric while lifting up Islamophobic voices and attitudes.”

When Joe Biden announced Karine Jean-Pierre would soon replace Jen Psaki as his press secretary, he naturally assumed the media would collectively swoon over the fact that he had picked a Black Lesbian Woman™ for such a high-profile position. Which, of course, they did. Biden clearly expects Jean-Pierre’s status as a black woman and a member of the LGBT community will protect her from scrutiny and criticism.

Heh. Well, not from me.

Related: Black Lesbian Woman™ to Replace Circle Back Girl as White House Press Secretary

It turns out that when you read the fine print on Black Lesbian Woman™ Jean-Pierre, you find out she’s in a same-sex marriage with CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux, which raises a few ethical questions.

“The White House did not respond to a request for comment about whether Jean-Pierre would recuse herself in dealing with CNN,” the Washington Free Beacon reports. “Malveaux’s colleagues include Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, CNN justice correspondent Laura Jarrett, and Israel ambassador Tom Nides’s wife, Virginia Moseley, who serves as CNN’s senior vice president of news-gathering.”

“Suzanne Malveaux will continue in her role as CNN national correspondent covering national/international news and cultural events but will not cover politics, Capitol Hill, or the White House while Karine Jean-Pierre is serving as White House press secretary,” a CNN spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon.

But that’s not the only skeleton in Jean-Pierre’s closet. In addition to the aforementioned ethical issues, she is also a long-time anti-Israel activist.

Her history includes a past role as a senior adviser and national spokeswoman for MoveOn.org, a far-left organization that has established itself as anti-Israel, in part by advocating for boycotts of the country that are widely considered anti-Semitic.

“Joe Biden’s promotion of Jean-Pierre signals to all would-be Israel haters that their efforts will be rewarded with White House appointments and promotions,” said Ellie Cohanim, a former Trump administration official who served as the State Department’s deputy special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism. “At a time of rising anti-Semitism in America, Biden’s promotion of Jean-Pierre is exactly the wrong signal to send.”

“As a child of Holocaust survivors and as an American Jew, I am both appalled and frightened that Biden has chosen as his principal deputy press secretary, Ms. Jean-Pierre, who has shown essentially antisemitic hostility toward Israel and is willing to lie about and vilify Israel and Jews to promote her ugly Israelophobic agenda,” Mort Klein, CEO of the Zionist Organization on America, said in a statement.

The political Left and the media establishment form one big club. This is not even close to being the first evidence of that. Think of George Stephanopoulos going from the Clinton White House to ABC News, and Jen Psaki, Jean-Pierre’s predecessor, going to MSNBC. You don’t see, say, Kayleigh McEnany getting a job on CNN. The supposedly objective news outlets are open only to the Left.

“Biden’s new press secretary sparks conflict-of-interest concerns over relationship with CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux,” by Lee Brown, New York Post, May 6, 2022: 

President Biden’s trailblazing pick for his new press secretary is already being accused of creating troubling conflicts of interest because of her long-term relationship with star CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux.

Karine Jean-Pierre — who next Friday will be both the first black and first openly gay person to hold the key White House post — lives with the network’s national correspondent in Washington, DC, with their 7-year-old daughter.

The Haitian-born press pick gushed about her relationship with Malveaux in Jean-Pierre’s 2019 memoir, “Moving Forward.”

“Most of all, I want to say that every word of this book was written with love for my partner, Suzanne Malveaux, and our daughter, Soleil Malveaux Jean-Pierre. You are my life,” she wrote, also thanking “the Malveaux family.”

While Jean-Pierre’s groundbreaking pick for the White House post was widely celebrated, it also left some questioning her and Malveaux’s impartiality. CNN’s recent scandals have included now-axed host Chris Cuomo’s behind-the-scenes meddling in brother and then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s sex scandals.

It also comes after her soon-to-be-predecessor, Jen Psaki, sparked similar conflict concerns for keeping the top job for six weeks after it was widely reported she’d been hired by left-leaning network MSNBC.

Soon after Jean-Pierre’s new gig was announced, Alex Marlow, editor-in-chief of the right-wing news outlet Breitbart, tweeted, “This is one of many examples of the corporate media LITERALLY in bed with the government it covers.”

Marlow noted that he had already raised concerns about Jean-Pierre’s relationship with Malveaux in his book, “Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption.”

“CNN will continue to be, in effect, the Biden administration’s communications shop,” his news site, Breitbart, claimed.

“This is one of many examples of the corporate media LITERALLY in bed with the government it covers,” tweeted Alex Marlow, editor-in-chief of right-wing news outlet Breitbart….

5 Radical Facts About Incoming White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

BY JOEL B. POLLAK

SEE: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/05/05/five-radical-facts-about-incoming-press-secretary-karine-jean-pierre/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Karine Jean-Pierre was named the new White House press secretary on Thursday, taking over from Jen Psaki, who is departing for MSNBC on May 13.

Jean-Pierre’s appointment was hailed as “historic,” since she will be the first black woman and “out” LGBTQ person to serve in the role. However, there are several facts about Jean-Pierre’s record of radical politics that might prove to be more important than her skin color or her sexual preference. Here are five facts:

1. Jean-Pierre worked for radical organization MoveOn.org. MoveOn.org, launched in the late 1990s to oppose the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, pushed, ironically, for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, abandoning its former principles. The group also infamously accused General David Petraeus, then commanding U.S. forces during the Iraq War, of betraying the country. Jean-Pierre worked for MoveOn.org from 2016 until the 2020 presidential campaign.

2. Jean–Pierre has a history of anti-Israel radicalism. In 2019, Jean-Pierre applauded Democratic presidential candidates for boycotting the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference in Washington, DC, a prominent pro-Israel gathering. “You cannot call yourself a progressive while continuing to associate yourself with an organization like AIPAC that has often been the antithesis of what it means to be progressive,” Jean-Pierre wrote.

3. Jean-Pierre once said that no one who has been merely accused of sexual misconduct should seek public office. Jean-Pierre told Jake Tapper on CNN’s State of the Union in 2017 that even if there was no corroborating evidence, and nothing had been proven against the accused, the mere existence of the accusation should be disqualifying. Ironically, she went on to work for Biden, even after he had been credibly accused of sexual misconduct by former aide Tara Reade.

4. Jean-Pierre is married to CNN anchor and correspondent Suzanne Malveaux. Jean-Pierre is only the latest example in a pattern of high-level personal ties and romantic links between Democrats and the media, as documented by Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow in his 2021 blockbuster Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret CorruptionCNN will continue to be, in effect, the Biden administration’s communications shop.

5. Jean-Pierre stoked racial divisions and fears when Donald Trump took office. She told Bill Maher on HBO’s Real Time, “I think the thing to understand is that, if you are not white, male, straight, you are — you fear a — Donald Trump’s presidency because there is no place for you in a Donald Trump’s presidency.” She later claimed that Trump wanted to put a “whites only” sign on the Statue of Liberty, and claimed Trump had been a lifelong racist, despite evidence to the contrary.

Blinken says U.S. will rejoin anti-Israel UNESCO, reopen ‘Palestinian’ consulate in Jerusalem

The world is on fire, but Biden’s handlers are not too busy to enable and embolden the jihad.

“Blinken: US will rejoin anti-Israel UNESCO, establish Palestinian consulate in Jerusalem,” JNS, April 30, 2022:

Israel has no objection to a U.S. return to UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told Congress last week.

The United States officially withdrew from UNESCO on Dec. 31, 2018 under the Trump administration. The move reflected “U.S. concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO,” the State Department said in a statement at the time….

Blinken described concerns about the organization’s anti-Israel bias as understandable, but added, “I can say with authority that our partners in Israel feel the same way. They support our rejoining of UNESCO.” The United States should “shape the discussion, not someone else,” he said.

The secretary of state also reiterated the administration’s commitment to reopening the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem, a campaign pledge made by President Joe Biden.

“It’s something we are working on with the Israeli government,” he said. “I was in Ramallah just a few weeks ago and saw [Palestinian Authority] President [Mahmoud] Abbas, we talked about that among other things,” he added.

“As you know, we re-established support for the Palestinians a year ago January, including significant humanitarian and economic assistance that had been previously held back, we have reengaged them across the board, and the consulate is a piece of that,” he said.

“It does require, of course, coordination with and support from Israel, including, for example, providing privileges and immunities for the staff of the consulate-to-be, so it’s a work in progress.”…

Israel to increase military, civilian aid to Ukraine as tensions with Russia rise

Something to keep an eye on: tensions have started to rise between Russia and Israel. Israel is expanding its aid to Ukraine, “including military assistance,” but “not offensive weapons.” In recent weeks, Zelensky has also turned to Israel’s “strategic advisors close to former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.”

Leaders in Jerusalem have also “lambasted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov for claiming Hitler had Jewish origins.”

A main concern that drove Israel’s caution at the outset of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in the first place was the Russian-controlled airspace over Syria. Israel and Russia have been cooperating to control Iran’s presence there. Netanyahu advised the Israeli government in February to be quiet about Russia and focus on Iran.

“Israel to increase military, civilian aid to Ukraine – report,” by Anna Ahronheim, Jerusalem Post, May 3, 2022:

Israel is leaning toward expanding its aid to Ukraine, including sending military assistance to the embattled country.

Israeli officials have said Jerusalem can send “plenty of items” to Kyiv that are more defensive, but air-defense systems, advanced weaponry and attack systems would not be sent, Haaretz reported.

The increase in aid would be a “substantial step” compared with what Israel has already provided, the report said, adding that it would be more symbolic and “not include substantial quantities of supplies” because of the aid already provided by the US and European countries.

Jerusalem has been trying to strike a balance between Russia and Ukraine, but Haaretz quoted a source as saying the US and some European countries expect Israel to take a clearer stance regarding which side it is on “and to back its decision with deeds and not just statements.”

A meeting by defense officials is planned for the coming days to discuss what platforms or supplies can be provided to Ukraine.

The Defense Ministry did not comment on the report.

Last week, Brig.-Gen. (res.) Dror Shalom, head of the Defense Ministry’s Political Security Division, took part in a US-led summit that discussed international defense aid to Ukraine.

Israel was among 43 countries – 29 NATO members and 14 non-NATO members – that attended the summit in Germany. Shalom’s participation could be viewed as a possible shift in stance by Israel, which has been attempting to preserve its close ties with Moscow….

Turkey: Freedom of Religion Only for Islam~BOYCOTT TURKISH FIREARMS

PLENTY OF REASONS TO BOYCOTT TURKISH FIREARMS 

BY UZAY BULUT

SEE: https://robertspencer.org/2022/04/turkey-freedom-of-religion-only-for-islam;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Turkey has long been heralded by the international media as a “secular” and “modern” country. But in reality, it is the absolute opposite. Non-Muslim communities – Christians, Jews, Alevis, Yazidis, agnostics, deists, atheists, and all others – are systematically victimized by discriminatory acts, including violations of their human rights, their convictions, their faith, and their freedom of speech.

2022 report by the Norwegian Helsinki Committee’s Freedom of Belief Initiative, entitled “An Appeal to Move Forward from Aspirations to Actions: Monitoring Report on the Right to Freedom of Religion or Belief in Turkey,” reveals Turkey’s decades-long abuses against non-Muslim communities across the country.

The Committee lists some of the violations of the rights of non-Muslims:

  • Atheists, deists, and agnostics encounter daily infringement on their right to freedom of thought and belief in the workplace, family, and the education system. Atheist, deist, and agnostic parents and students do not have the right to exemption from the compulsory religious instruction in the Religious Culture and Ethics lessons.
  • Those who express criticism of religion or belief in general, or of specific interpretations, especially those of Islam, face complaints and risk being prosecuted under the Turkish Penal Code.
  • No religious or belief community in Turkey has a legal personality as such. Religious or belief groups and their representative institutions, such as Patriarchates of the Chief Rabbinate, lack legal entity status and as such, cannot access the court system, open bank accounts, buy property or officially employ their own religious officials and provide social security for them. Individuals belonging to religious, or belief groups organize themselves as associations or establish foundations with religious intent, though these are also subject to limitations.
  • Important restrictions continue to hamper the associative capacity of the non-Muslim community foundations. The foundations’ board elections have been obstructed since 2013. As a result, the functioning of the community foundations and the beneficiary communities continue to be paralyzed and weak.
  • Acquiring place of worship status remains an ongoing challenge for several religious communities. This is particularly true for the Alevi, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Protestant communities. The kingdom halls of Jehovah’s Witnesses, the churches of the Protestant community, and the cemevis of the Alevi community are in particularly precarious positions due to this lack of an official place of worship status. The public authorities have systematically denied a place of worship status to these sites, in disregard of relevant ECtHR [European Court of Human Rights] judgments.
  • Many religious buildings are on the verge of ruin and at risk of being lost even though they are officially registered as cultural heritage sites by the Cultural Heritage Preservation Regional Boards under the umbrella of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
  • Furthermore, the impact of past loss of properties and associated foundations belonging to a wide range of religious or belief groups continues to be a scar in need of attention. For non-Muslim communities, the process of returning community foundation property that was unjustly taken has not been completed; the damage has yet to be fully remedied.

The report gives as examples the Hagia Sophia former Church and the Chora former Church in Constantinople that were converted into mosques in 2020.

“Both Hagia Sophia and Chora were originally built as churches, converted into mosques during the Ottoman period, and then converted into museums during the Republican Period,” the report adds.

In 2005, the Association of Permanent Foundations and Service to Historical Artifacts and Environment filed a lawsuit to challenge the status of the Chora Church as a museum. In November 2019, the Council of State, Turkey’s highest administrative court, ordered that it was to be reconverted to a mosque. A Presidential Decree opening the Chora (Kariye) Mosque to worship was published in the Official Gazette on 21 August 2020. In October 2020 the images of Jesus Christ, frescoes and icons in the museum were covered by white curtains.

In July 2020, the Turkish Council of State Tenth Chamber annulled the 1934 Cabinet Decree making it a museum. The Council of State ruled unanimously to nullify the 1934 Cabinet Decree as contrary to the law. Almost immediately after the ruling, President [Recep Tayyip] Erdoğan signed a presidential decree on 10 July 2020 turning the site back into a mosque. The decree transferred the administration of the Hagia Sophia (Ayasofya-i Kebir) Mosque to the Presidency of Religious Affairs (Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı, DİB or Diyanet), a public body under the Presidency responsible for the administration of all mosques in Turkey.”

  • No measures have been taken to eliminate interference [of the government] in the internal affairs of the Armenian Orthodox, Jewish, and Greek Orthodox communities in the appointment of religious leaders. This is despite the finding of the Turkish Constitutional Court that the interference in the latest election of the Armenian Patriarch was not prescribed by law.
  • Glaring inequalities in the legal restrictions facing training religious personnel other than Sunni Muslim religious personnel and in public resources allocated to the training of Sunni Muslim religious personnel versus the denial of resources to the training of other religious personnel have not been remedied.
  • Religious communities, such as the Alevi community, Greek Orthodox Patriarchate, Armenian Patriarchate, and Protestant community, have been unable to train religious staff within Turkey.
  • Turkish authorities have continued to issue travel restrictions targeting Christian foreigners. These restrictions interfere with several human rights including freedom of religion or belief, the right to a fair trial, freedom of movement, and protection of aliens against unlawful expulsion. This practice also impacts the Protestant community since, not being permitted to train their own teachers, they rely on foreign religious workers.
  • Public funding of religious services is provided solely for the Sunni Islamic community. This is in contradiction with the prohibition of discrimination and with the state’s obligation to observe the principle of equality.
  • As a result of the denial of public religious services, requested by the Alevi applicants, and the non-recognition of the Alevi faith by the state, Alevis are unable to fully exercise their right to freedom of religion or belief.
  • The child’s right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion, their right to participation, as well as parents’ rights to raise their children in line with their own philosophical or religious views, are subject to systematic interference in Turkey’s public education system. The mandatory Religious Culture and Ethics (RCE) lessons, including the exemption mechanism, the optional religion courses, Islamic religious practices in schools, and high school placement exams constitute substantial interference in the protection of, among others, the child’s right to freedom of religion or belief.
  • Women across different religious or belief communities face significant obstructions to free will in the exercise of their human rights, including freedom of religion or belief. Some of the central findings of this report demonstrate that women continue to be especially vulnerable in their homes, women are prone to pressures from secular and religious segments of society, and women often feel compelled to live double lives. Furthermore, men continue to exercise a monopoly over the interpretation of religious dogma and religious offices. Decision-making processes in religious or belief communities also remain dominated by men.

All these rights violations are rooted in or inspired by Islamic teachings.

Islam does not allow freedom of religion and threatens the death penalty for apostasy. As the website “The Religion of Peace” (ROP) puts it, “The only freedom of belief in Islam is the freedom to become Muslim.” The ROP website also notes:

Muslims are told to fight unbelievers until they are either dead, converted to Islam, or in a permanent state of subjugation under Muslim domination. Allowing people of other faiths to live and worship independently of Islamic rule is not an option.

And in the Islamic teachings and traditions, there is no room for a secular political system in which all people are treated as equals.

While the believers of all other religions and non-religious citizens are oppressed and deprived of their human rights, one of the most important institutions of the country is the Presidency of Religious Affairs, a Sunni Islamic institution, referred to in Turkish simply as the Diyanet. It was established in 1924. The President of Turkey appoints the President of the Diyanet. Provincial muftis and imams working in Sunni mosques are appointed by the Diyanet. With an enormous budget, a plentiful staff, broad activities, and a great sphere of influence, the Diyanet is a bigger institution than many ministries of Turkey.

The institutions and associations belonging to non-Muslims, however, are subject to organized discrimination. The demographic collapse of Christians and Jews has made the problem even worse. Today only 0.1% of Turkey’s whole population is Christian or Jewish, because of decades of persecution culminating in the genocide at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Massacres swept across the Christian population of Anatolia from 1894 to 1924. During the three decades, around 2.5 million Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks were murdered by Turks. The historians Benny Morris and Dror Ze’evi detail the crimes committed during this period in their book The Thirty-Year Genocide.

Also, in 1934, Jews in eastern Thrace were exposed to a pogrom. From 1941 to 1942, Turkey enlisted all Christian and Jewish males in the military, including the elderly and mentally ill. They were forced to work under horrendous conditions in labor battalions. In 1942, a wealth tax was imposed to eliminate Christians and Jews from the economy. In 1955, Greeks, Armenians, and Jews were targeted by a pogrom in Istanbul. And in 1964, the remaining Greeks were forcefully expelled from Turkey. All of the above contributed to the ethnic cleansing of Christians and Jews in Turkey.

Even after those crimes, Turkey arbitrarily continues to violate the rights of the non-Muslims who are still living in the country, as the most recent report by the Norwegian Helsinki Committee’s Freedom of Belief Initiative has once more revealed.

It is the Islamic government of Turkey and much of its Islamic society that are responsible for this continual prejudice and abuse of human rights. Dissidents living under such Islamic dictatorships, however, are not allowed to have public debates about these issues, because of the ideological refusal to recognize their freedom of speech if they are “kafirs” or “infidels” and ever dared to question historic facts, and above all, Islam.

The Top Ten Jew-Hating Colleges and Universities

De-Fund the pro-terrorist movement on campus.

BY SARA DOGAN

On college campuses across America, hatred and bigotry directed against Jews is at an all-time high. It is now almost commonplace for swastikas to appear in university halls and restrooms or scrawled on Jewish fraternity houses. Hundreds of chapters of the Hamas-funded terrorist support group, Students for Justice in Palestine, hold events promoting anti-Semitic speakers who spread terrorist propaganda, describing Israel – created the same way Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq were created—as a “settler-colonial state” that engages in “ethnic cleansing.” Under the influence of these terrorist-supporting hate groups, university departments have lined up to endorse statements incorporating the same genocidal lies.

Under pressure from Students for Justice in Palestine and other campus groups including the Muslim Brotherhood-created Muslim Students Association, student governments across the nation are promoting the Hamas-created Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel and its sister movement, the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, efforts reminiscent of the Nazi boycotts of the past. The goal of these boycotts is to isolate and economically strangle the world’s only Jewish state and the Middle East’s only democracy.

In the rare instances when pro-Israel speakers are invited to campus, they are met by mobs shouting slogans such as “Intifada!”—a call for a new violent uprising against Israel—or “From the River to the Sea, Palestine Will be Free”—a call to destroy the entirety of the Jewish homeland. America’s universities have become a new fount of Jew-hatred which then leeches into the broader culture.

Members of SJP and other campus anti-Israel groups will attempt to deny that their goals and rhetoric are anti-Semitic and claim that they are targeting Israel’s alleged atrocities—while of course ignoring the never-ending terror campaign perpetrated by the Palestine Authority and Hamas against the Jewish people.

In 2016, the U.S. State Department, along with 30 other nations that comprise the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) adopted a “working definition” of anti-Semitism that illuminates multiple ways in which SJP and their allies openly promote Jew-hatred. 

The member nations of the IHRA defined anti-Semitism as “a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”

Examples of anti-Semitism were presented “to guide IHRA in its work.” These examples include “Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor,” and “Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.”

Other examples of anti-Semitism included are: “Applying double standards by requiring of [Israel] a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation,” “Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis,” and “drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis,” among others.

This latter libel is particularly ironic since the Muslim Brotherhood translated Hitler’s Mein Kampf in the 1930s, and the George Washington of Palestinian nationalism – the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini – was a Nazi who spent the war years in Berlin organizing an Arab legion for Hitler and planning an Auschwitz for the Middle East.

Israeli politician Natan Sharansky encompasses many of the IHRA points in his equally illuminating but more succinct definition of anti-Semitism known as the “Three D’s” - Delegitimization, Demonization, and Double Standards.

In Sharansky’s definition, criticism of Israel crosses the line into anti-Semitism when it delegitimizes Israel as a Jewish state by claiming that its founding by the UN was illegitimate or racist, when Jews or Israelis are demonized as evil or portrayed as bloodthirsty, and when double standards are applied to criticize Israel for its foreign policy and record on human rights while avoiding scrutiny of other nations. 

It is no coincidence that Jewish students and organizations on many campuses have sought to have their universities adopt the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism, and also no coincidence that their efforts have been universally and violently opposed by members of Students for Justice in Palestine and other anti-Jewish campus hate groups. SJP knows that they openly and flagrantly participate in and promote Jew-hatred on a daily basis.

The report that follows exposes the pervasive Jew-hatred that exists at ten prominent American universities. This hatred is not limited to individuals but thrives on an apparatus of support within these universities including student organizations, faculty members, student governments, university departments, and even administrators. While we believe these ten campuses to be the worst of the worst, the sad truth is that Jew-hatred exists and is increasing on hundreds if not thousands of campuses across America. We must name it, before it accomplishes its genocidal goals. And we must take measures to de-fund it and stop it.  

The campus terrorist movement is led by Students for Justice in Palestine and the Muslim Students Association. Over a dozen former members of the Muslim Students Association—including several former chapter presidents—have gone on to hold positions in terrorist organizations in the Middle East and elsewhere. The most famous of these was Anwar al-Awlaki, a leader of al Qaeda in Yemen who was president of the Colorado State Muslim Students Association and was eventually killed in a drone strike during the Obama administration.

Students for Justice in Palestine and other campus purveyors of Jew-hatred are officially recognized by their university administrations. This means they are given privileges denied to non-officially recognized groups, receive funding for their campus events, and are given coveted student offices to conduct their student business. They receive all these benefits despite the fact that they violate official “community principles” which insist on respect for other students and campus diversity.

If officially-sanctioned university organizations and departments directed this sort of rabid hate at any other group on campus—blacks or transgender students for instance—they would be stripped of their university recognition, campus privileges, student offices, and university funding, and their leaders would probably be expelled.

Yet groups devoted to spreading Jew-hatred continue to receive official recognition, support, and funding from American universities, even as they call for a genocide of the Jews.

We call on the universities cataloged in this report and all institutions of higher learning to shut down the Jew-hatred infecting their campuses. If they should fail to do so, we urge Congress to withhold all federal funding until they are willing to support the principles of diversity, inclusion, and fairness which represent the heart of the American system.

Boston University

(Universities are not ranked within the top ten)

University of Chicago

The University of Chicago has become one of the most ardent promoters of Jew-hatred among American campuses. The campus chapter of the terrorist-funded hate group, Students for Justice in Palestine, published an art zine titled “Cheers to Intifada,” referring to the violent Palestinian uprisings during which Jewish citizens of Israel were slaughtered because they were Jews. The student government at Chicago also published a statement promoting the anti-Semitic BDS movement against Israel and used genocidal language calling to “free” Palestine “from the river to the sea,” a call to annihilate the entire state of Israel along with its Jewish citizens. The Center for Middle East Studies at Chicago has also held multiple events featuring anti-Semitic speakers such as Rashid Khalidi and Michelle Hartman who demonized Israel and endorsed BDS.

Evidence:

In April 2022, the Viewpoints Head Editors of The Chicago Maroon removed an op-ed written by Jewish students titled “We Must Condemn the SJP’s Online Anti-Semitism” and published an apology for printing it in the first place. The apology claimed that the op-ed was removed because it spread “factual inaccuracies,” promoted “Zionist and racist sentiments that relied on oversimplified narratives,” and “perpetuated hate toward UChicago’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP UChicago), Palestinian students, and those on campus who support the Palestinian liberation struggle.”

In February 2022, a member of SJP published an opinion piece in The Chicago Maroon titled "We Should Join SJP's Boycott of Zionist Classes.” The piece promoted the academic boycott of Israel, an offshoot of the Hamas-inspired BDS movement against Israel. The piece also demonized Israel, stating that “Classes that normalize the foundation of an apartheid regime on the exclusionary basis of other ethnicities and identities are racist. Calling out these classes is not.”

In January 2022, SJP’s chapter at the University of Chicago posted on Instagram encouraging students to “support the Palestinian liberation by boycotting classes on Israel or those taught by Israeli fellows.” The header for the post used obscene language to characterize supporters of Israel, stating, "Don't Take Sh*tty Zionist Classes." The content of the post also demonized Israel, claiming that it is an “apartheid state” that “dehumanize[s] indigenous populations and justif[ies] their violent seizure of land.”

In November 2021, SJP at U. Chicago published an art zine titled “Cheers to Intifada.”  The zine promoted terrorism against Israel and contained violent imagery including a graphic of two lit Molotov cocktails raised in a toast under the heading “Cheers to Intifada.” The zine was also rife with anti-Semitism including an image of a pig wearing a policeman’s hat with a Jewish star on it. Poems in the publication promoted ancient blood libel tropes against Jews such as one describing a Jewish teenager who held Palestinians captive and had "animalistic lust yearning to rape bodies."

In October 2021, U. Chicago SJP promoted the genocidal BDS movement against Israel by posting support for an academic boycott of Israel on Instagram. The post demonized Israel as a practitioner of “blatant apartheid” – Israel is almost the only country in the Middle East that is not an apartheid state—and urged American universities to cut ties with their counterparts in Israel.

In June 2021, SJP published a lengthy statement calling on the College Council to "vote 'NO' on the resolution to retract [the University Student Government’s] statement of solidarity and support for Palestine." SJP’s statement promoted Jew-hatred and demonized Israel, calling campus supporters of the Jewish state "student body apartheid apologists," and denying Israel’s self-determination by calling for the "abolition of a violent political state [of Israel]."

In June 2021, the Center for Middle East Studies at U. Chicago held an event titled "Language, Translation, and Politics of Solidarity with Palestine" featuring McGill University professor Michelle Hartman. During her address, Hartman demonized Israel as being founded on “settler colonialism” and promoted the genocidal and terrorist-funded BDS movement against Israel.

In May 2021, the student government at the University of Chicago published a statement claiming to “stand against the ideology of Zionism” and using genocidal language against the Jewish people, stating “from the river to the sea, USG supports a Palestine that is free.” The statement additionally demonized Israel, claiming that the “ideology of Zionism” has been “used as a justification for murder, displacement, and traumatization of Palestinian people,” and openly supported the terrorist-inspired BDS movement against the Jewish state. Jewish groups on campus later noted that a Jewish student government representative and Jewish groups on campus were excluded from discussions on the resolution before it passed, as a result of SJP’s insistence that if they were allowed to participate in the discussions, they would "view this [Israel] as religious conflict, not apartheid."

The statement was endorsed by nearly 30 faculty members of the University. On the night the statement was released, a group of Jewish students returning from a religious service was threatened by a passing motorist who "repeatedly yelled out ‘F*ck Jews.'"

In March 2021, The U. Chicago Center for Middle East Studies and the Middle East Research and Information Project (MERIP) held an event on "COVID-19 and Access to Essential Drugs in Gaza." Speakers at the event demonized Israel by accusing it of "medical apartheid" and having "weaponized COVID" with respect to the Palestinians.

In December 2020, The Center for Middle Eastern Studies held an event titled, “The Hundred Years’ War on Palestine.” Featured speakers at the event included anti-Semitic Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi. During his address, Khalidi demonized Israel, accusing the Jewish state of “settler colonialism” and “occupation,” and claiming falsely that Israel attempts to terrify the Palestinians to achieve dominance rather than to ensure the nation’s safety: "I don’t think it’s security [for Israel that] fully describes accurately what is at stake here. What is at stake is actually dominance and hegemony when Israeli soldiers are kicking down doors and scaring children in the night… They’re making people afraid of them and that’s the objective. The objective is not really to make a child in [name of Israeli town] secure by making a child in Nablus wet his bed or her bed because soldiers are kicking down the door."

San Francisco State University

San Francisco State University has a well-earned reputation as perhaps the most anti-Semitic university in the nation, and Professor Rabab Abdulhadi serves as the public face of its Jew-hatred. Abdulhadi is a rabidly anti-Semitic professor of Ethnic Studies who also heads SFSU’s Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas Initiative (AMED). AMED has sponsored an event at which posters asserted, “My Heroes Have Always Killed Colonizers,” referring to Israel’s Jews. Abdulhadi has glorified anti-Israel terrorism in public talks and served as faculty advisor to SFSU’s chapter of the General Union of Palestinian Students, an SJP surrogate group, during the time when its leader posted pictures of himself wielding a knife and threatening Jews on social media and was investigated for terrorism by the FBI. More recently, Abdulhadi has hosted online events featuring Palestinian terrorist Leila Khaled, whom Abdulhadi reveres as a hero. Abdulhadi does not stand alone in promoting Jew-hatred among SFSU faculty. Numerous academic departments have held events featuring known anti-Semitic speakers and endorsed statements demonizing and delegitimizing the Jewish state and AMED continues to post anti-Semitic statements and rhetoric on its official university social media accounts. 

Evidence:

In March 2022, SFSU professors Rabab Abdulhadi and Tomomi Kinukawa urged supporters to attend a “grievance hearing” after an online event they held featuring convicted PFLP terrorist Leila Khaled was removed from YouTube for violating their community standards. National SJP quoted SFSU Professor Kinukawa who said of SFSU, "We urgently need to resist Islamophobia, Orientalism, and settler-colonialism including yellow washing and pinkwashing [as] these settler-colonial and racist structures have been instrumentalized by neo-liberalized ethnic, queer and women's and gender studies, to systematically justify their complicity with Zionism.” 

In November 2021, a multitude of campus and community groups including the Palestine Action Network, US Palestinian Community Network, Al-Awda San Francisco, NorCal Friends of Sabeel, and Palestinian Youth Movement held a “SAVE AMED - Press Conference & Community Speak Out" in the SFSU Quad. AMED is the Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas (AMED) Initiative which is led by notorious anti-Semite SFSU Professor Rabab Abdulhadi. The advertisement for the event demonized Israel as an “apartheid” state and invited anti-Semitic conspiracy theories by claiming that Abdulhadi and her students have suffered “attacks on their freedom of speech and academic freedom from corporate and Zionist outside forces.” Speakers at the event also promoted Jew-hatred. Alexi Folger, an SFSU alum and member of the anti-Semitic hate group Jewish Voice for Peace led the audience in a chant of “Zionism is racism, Zionism is racism, Zionism is racism, free Palestine!" while Tomomi Kinukawa, a lecturer in the Department of Women and Gender Studies at SFSU, claimed that SFSU "President Mahoney refuses to acknowledge and end SFSU's collusion with Zionists and their racist Islamophobic attacks on Dr. Abdulhadi, AMED and teaching Palestine..." and that the "SFSU administration rejects join[ing] the anti-colonial and anti-apartheid movements for justice in and for Palestine." Suzanne a member of the Palestinian Youth Movement, declared "Zionism is racism. Zionism upholds the tenets of white supremacy.”

In June 2021, AMED at SFSU and The People's Forum co-sponsored an event titled, "Justice for Palestine - A Call to Action from Indigenous and Women of Color Feminists, A Report Card 10 Years Later." Numerous speakers at the event engaged in speech that demonized and delegitimized Israel and also expressed support for the genocidal and Hamas-inspired BDS movement.  Dr. Premilla Nadasen, a Professor of History at Barnard College/Columbia University, claimed that "[T]he walls, the structures of apartheid in Palestine, were designed to isolate, were designed to undermine unity, were designed to divide. It was about the diversion of water resources, it was about the theft of land, it was about ethnic cleansing." Dr. Angela Davis, a professor emeritus at UC-Santa Cruz and a notorious communist and conspirator with the Black Panthers, quoted activist June Jordan stating, “I was born a black woman and now I have become Palestinian against the relentless laughter of evil." One speaker reportedly exclaimed "all empires collapse... Israel will fall as well, and that for me is a source of hope and inspiration."

In May 2021, the Department of Women & Gender Studies at SFSU signed the statement "Gender Studies Departments in Solidarity with Palestinian Feminist Collective." The statement demonized Israel as “using violent force, punitive bureaucracy, and the legal system to expel Palestinians from their rightful homes and to remove Palestinian people from their land” and denied self-determination to the Jewish people.

In April 2021, AMED at SFSU co-sponsored the event “#FreeThemAll – In Sumoud and Solidarity from the United States to Palestine.” Speakers at the event demonized Israel and promoted the genocidal and Hamas-funded BDS movement against Israel. AMED senior scholar Prof. Rabab Abdulhadi appeared to celebrate terrorists by declaring that “as is the case in Palestine, we always start all events by honoring the martyrs, the fallen, who have fallen in the struggle for justice, for freedom, for all our communities, for humanity, for all of us." She also invited the audience to a future webinar with convicted Palestinian terrorist Leila Khaled.

In April 2021, the General Union of Palestinian Students (GUPS) at SFSU and Bears for Palestine at UC Berkeley co-hosted an "Israeli Apartheid Week," an anti-Semitic hatefest that promotes Hamas propaganda. The week included an event promoting the Palestinian “right of return” which would annihilate Israel as a Jewish state.

The official Facebook page for AMED Studies at SFSU promoted "Israeli Apartheid Week" at a Canadian University including a speech by AMED Director Rabab Abdulhadi on “Anything but Random - Defeating Zionist and Corporatized Systematic Erasure of Palestine."

In March 2021, AMED Studies joined Samidoun - Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network for an event featuring Rabab Abdulhadi and Steve Zeltzer who both demonized Israel and promoted anti-Jewish conspiracy theories. Abdulhadi declared that "Today, a perennial Zionist right-wing and white supremacist campaign is threatening to recolonize the California ethnic studies curriculum, silence Palestine [and] police and suppress campus activism and privatize our public education."

In February 2021, a multitude of academic departments at SFSU including Africana Studies, Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas (AMED) Studies, Asian American Studies, and Edison Uno Institute of Nikkei and Uchinanchu Studies held an event titled “2021 Day of Remembrance,” where a pair of SFSU faculty members demonized and delegitimized Israel and appeared to condone anti-Israel terrorism.

Miho Kim, a lecturer in Asian American Studies at SFSU claimed that Zoom’s decision to censor an “education” presentation featuring a convicted Palestinian terrorist amounts to “branding a freedom fighter resisting an illegal and racist colonial occupation of Palestine by Israel a staunch US ally in the region as a terrorist.” She equated this determination to “how people of Japanese ancestry were once branded enemy aliens during World War II."

Dr. Tomomi Kinukawa lauded “revolutionaries” who “taught me how to set our own narratives” and referred to Israel as “Zionist Israel of settler colonialism in Palestine..."

In December 2020, the official Facebook page for AMED posted a quote from AMED director and notorious anti-Semite Rabab Abdulhadi that demonized Israel and equated it to white supremacy. The quote read in part, "Palestine Writes - WE UNDERSTAND THAT ISRAEL’S SETTLER COLONIAL PROJECT IS BUILT UPON THE ERASURE OF #PALESTINE AND PALESTINIANS, but the tide is turning and we must press forward. 'Zionists and white supremacists have long sought to muzzle me. Now they are widening their nets considerably....” 

In September 2020, AMED Studies and the Women and Gender Studies Departments co-hosted an event titled, "Whose Narratives - Gender, Justice, & Resistance: A conversation with Leila Khaled." Speakers at the event openly promoted Jew-hatred and condoned anti-Israel terrorism. Speaking about convicted terrorist Leila Khaled, Abdulhadi stated, "Leila Khaled is not an exception but she is a model to be followed. Leila Khaled represents the strength, the defiance, and also the resistance to islamophobic orientalists and colonialist discourses." YouTube shut the event down after 22 minutes for violating its community standards. 

Arizona State University

Arizona State University is home to an extremist chapter of the Hamas-funded hate group Students for Justice in Palestine which has bragged about disrupting pro-Israel events on campus and called for a violent uprising or “Intifada” against Israel. Other campus organizations have labeled campus Jewish groups as “Fascist Groups on Campus” and have joined with SJP to call for ASU to support the Hamas-funded BDS movement against Israel and denigrated the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) as Nazis, a common form of anti-Semitism. SJP and allied campus groups have repeatedly introduced resolutions supporting BDS on campus and have issued press releases and statements demonizing and delegitimizing the Jewish state.

Evidence:

In November 2021, antisemitic flyers were found posted on the Arizona State University campus that stated “Who Controls the World? Jews Do” over an image of a hook-nosed individual dressed as a vampire and a Star of David. The words “Jews Do” were written in a red font meant to depict blood.

In October 2021, the campus organization, Students for Socialism at ASU, created a Facebook post listing allegedly “Fascist Groups on Campus” which attacked Jewish organizations and demonized the Jewish state.  The post claimed that the campus chapter of Students Supporting Israel “[l]iterally only exists to support the genocidal apartheid state of Israel” and alleged that the group’s “Executive members have harassed BIPOC students, including Palestinian and Muslim students." The post also stated that another campus Jewish group, J Street ASU, “[l]iterally only exists to support the genocidal apartheid state of Israel and the 'two-state solution.'"

In June 2021, SJP at ASU co-hosted an Instagram Live event together with other pro-Palestinian organizations. An advertisement for the event urged participants to "Join us and our friends at this page on IG live Tuesday night cuz we gonna talk sh*t on zios [Zionists].”

In May 2021, SJP at ASU, The Palestine Cultural Club at ASU, and the Arizona Palestine Solidarity Alliance together authored an email to ASU President Michael Crow promoting the genocidal and terrorist-funded academic BDS movement against Israel. The email urged the president to put an end to students’ ability to study abroad in Israel and also to prohibit the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) from coming to campus.  The email also demonized and delegitimized Israel by claiming that it perpetrates “ethnic cleansing” and exists on “occupied land.” It also invoked Jew-hating blood libel tropes by claiming that the IDF “has the blood of our families on their hands.”

In May 2021, SJP at ASU held an off-campus rally where the group displayed signs that demonized and delegitimized Israel including “Stop United States Aid to Apartheid Israel," "End Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine," "Jerusalem is the Capitol of Palestine," "Stop Genocide, Free Palestine" and "We can't breathe since 1948."

During a student government meeting on April 13, 2021, the vice president of the campus chapter of SJP demonized Israel and called the members of the student senate “cowards” for “not speaking up about apartheid and one of the biggest human rights violations that is going on in our time.” She also objected to a 2019 visit during which IDF soldiers were invited to campus and argued that it was a reason to restrict funding to pro-Israel groups: "As USG oversees funding to organizations, I don't think that funding should be given to organizations that invite apartheid forces that make me feel unsafe [and] I'm disappointed in you and you are elected officials... BDS is not going away."

In April 2021, SJP together with other student groups introduced "A Resolution to Support Palestinian Students" in the ASU student government. The resolution promoted the terrorist-sponsored BDS movement against Israel and also demonized and delegitimized the Jewish state.  “Whereas the Israeli economy is built on and currently complicit with colonization, exclusion, and apartheid, so this resolution targets specific companies and brands in order to concentrate its efforts,” it read. The student government president later removed the resolution from consideration stating that it was beyond the purview of the body.

In November 2019, several pro-Israel and Jewish groups on campus jointly held an event featuring injured veterans of the IDF titled "Courage and Sacrifice - Israeli Soldiers Speak on Campus." Protestors holding signs promoting “Intifada” disrupted the event, forcing it to be moved to a new location, and then harassing students as they left the new location.

ASU Hillel issued a statement, noting, "When Hillel staff and students came to prepare the room, it was covered in Palestinian flags and approximately 80 protesters blocked the entrance. We were offered another room in the Memorial Union and able to continue the event; ASU Police escorted all event attendees out of the Memorial Union at its conclusion. Unfortunately, the protests caused many students to feel intimidated, ultimately choosing not to attend. ASU Hillel believes strongly that these actions of intimidation are antithetical to our campus values, as they disrespect our students’ and our guests’ right to free expression." SJP at ASU later shared a statement on social media from the ASU Students for Socialism bragging about shutting down the event.

A Jewish student wrote an article describing the incident which involved “a group of 50 students chanting and heading toward the room Hillel had reserved” armed with posters stating “Long live the intifada” as well as other statements demonizing Israel. “I called my roommates to walk me home because I didn’t feel safe on campus by myself,” the student testified. 

In response to the IDF event, an SJP-formed coalition called 'Human Rights Activism Coalition of ASU' held a press conference on campus during which student speakers demonized and delegitimized Israel and promoted the terrorist-funded BDS movement. “We support BDS and we disrupted the IDF event because of the injustices and genocide being perpetrated against Palestinians by Israel, which has been happening for more than 50 years,” claimed the President of SJP at ASU. The President of the Black Graduate Students Association also likened the IDF to Nazis, saying “We need ASU to stop trying to play both sides, you need to say do you support us or not. Because if you support us [then] Nazis and white supremacists cannot be allowed on campus and that includes ICE and IDF.”

Rutgers University

Rutgers University has a well-deserved reputation as a locus of Jew-hatred in the northeast. The institution is the academic home of antisemitic professor Noura Erakat who has repeatedly attempted to whitewash Palestinian terrorism against Israel and has declared that Israel is so steeped in evil, that it cannot be reformed, only destroyed.  The campus chapter of the Hamas-funded hate group Students for Justice in Palestine has repeatedly held events that demonize and delegitimize Israel and which promote the terrorist-funded BDS movement against the Jewish state. Official university centers and departments including the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and the Center for Security, Race, and Rights have also publicly endorsed anti-Semitic statements and videos. Jewish students on campus have been victims of a number of hate crimes including an incident where eggs were thrown at the house of Alpha Epsilon Pi—a Jewish fraternity— during an event commemorating Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) during which the names of Holocaust victims were being read aloud.

Evidence:

In February 2022, Rutgers History Professor Whitney Strubs sent and published a letter to Rutgers President Holloway endorsing an academic boycott of Israel, an offshoot of the genocidal and Hamas-funded BDS movement against Israel. The letter demonized Israel, calling it an “apartheid state,” and arguing that an agreement Rutgers has with Tel Aviv University is “impossible to reconcile…with any kind of moral excellence.”

In January 2022, the campus chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine—a Hamas-funded anti-Israel hate group—at the New Brunswick and Newark campuses of the university sent a letter to Rutgers President Holloway and the university administration urging them to cancel a research partnership with Tel Aviv University. The letter demonized Israel as guilty of apartheid and ethnic cleansing and demanded that President Holloway apologize for a recent visit to Israel, an example of SJP’s refusal to “normalize” relations with Israel or its supporters. “To collaborate with an Israeli university, business, or organization is to legitimize and sustain Israeli apartheid and the ongoing settler-colonization of Palestine,” SJP’s letter claimed. A letter repeating the same accusations garnered over 3,700 signatures.

During an online presentation in December 2021, Rutgers University professor Noura Erakat, who has long been known for her promotion of Jew-hatred, repeatedly demonized and delegitimized Israel, stating that Zionism is "in and of itself is racist" and a "supremacist ideology." She also claimed that Israel participates in "forced population transfer" by denying the "right of return" to descendants of the Arabs who fled Israel during its founding—a step that if taken would eliminate Israel as a Jewish state. Erakat claimed that Israel is so evil that it is an “illusion that Israel’s regime of discrimination can be remedied through reform, inclusion and formal equality” and argued that these alleged crimes can only be solved by its destruction. The professor also whitewashed anti-Israel terrorism, claiming that supporters of Israel have falsely "cast Palestinian resistance in all of its forms—BDS, mass protest, the Gaza march of return, legal advocacy—as terroristic."

In November 2021, Rutgers SJP at the New Brunswick campus held an event called “Palestine 101.” The advertisement for the event demonized and delegitimized Israel, stating that attendees would learn about "the history of Palestine, the fundamentals of colonialism, Rutgers’ role in Israeli Apartheid, and how we as students can take action against it."

In October 2021, the Rutgers Center for Security, Race, and Rights posted a "Fact Sheet on Palestine" on the department's official social media sites. The fact sheet included a hashtag for “apartheid,” demonizing the Jewish state by implying that it is engaging in apartheid. 

In August 2021, the Rutgers Center for Security, Race, and Rights posted a video on the official department Facebook page which demonized Israel with numerous hashtags including "#FreePalestine #Palestine #SaveSheikhJarrah #SaveSilwan #Gaza #WestBank #alquds #Jerusalem #Israel #apartheid #nojusticenopeace #endtheoccupation #colonization #whitesupremacy #zionism." The video referred to the Israeli Defense Forces which seek to protect Israel from omnipresent Palestinian terrorism as the "IOF" - the Israeli Occupation Forces and referred to Israel’s capital as "the occupied city of Jerusalem."

In June 2021, the executive board of a local chapter of the AAUP-AFT for part-time lecturers at Rutgers released a "Statement in Solidarity with the Palestinian People" that demonized Israel by calling it "a regime of legalized racial discrimination against the Palestinian people" as well as an “apartheid” state and called on the AFT and the U.S. government to divest from all financial relations with and support for Israel.

In June 2021, the Rutgers Center for Security, Race, and Rights responded to recent attacks on Israel by Hamas by promoting a quote condoning Palestinian terrorism on its official Facebook page: "[R]esistance, broadly speaking, is not only the ability to fight back against a militarily more powerful oppressor but also the ability to creatively resist the colonization of one’s land.”

In May 2021, Rutgers Hillel noted disturbing incidents of Jew-hatred on campus, and was quoted as stating that "identifiably Jewish students have been verbally assaulted, some report having their car tires slashed" and that they were also subjected to a "social media pogrom" amounting to a "torrent of hatred."

In May 2021, in the wake of numerous anti-Semitic incidents on campus, the Rutgers administration released a statement condemning anti-Semitism. After numerous campus groups and outlets criticized the statement while demonizing Israel and supporting BDS, the Rutgers administration apologized for its initial statement criticizing anti-Semitism, because it “failed to communicate support for our Palestinian community members.” SJP at Rutgers responded by condemning the apology, again demonizing Israel and promoting the Hamas-funded BDS movement.

Also in May 2021, The Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Rutgers University signed a "Statement In Solidarity With The People Of Palestine" promoted by the Agitate Journal. The statement denied Jews self-determination, demonized the Jewish state, and urged Rutgers to "divest from Israel, and support the call by Palestinian civil society for BDS"—thereby promoting the genocidal BDS movement against Israel.

In April 2021, eggs were thrown at the house of Alpha Epsilon Pi—a Jewish fraternity— during an event commemorating Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) during which the names of Holocaust victims were read for 24 hours.

In April 2021, Rutgers SJP held an “Israeli Apartheid Week” on campus, a genocidal event promoting Jew-hatred and the extinction of the Jewish state.

In March 2021, an anonymous student at Rutgers posted on Instagram that "In a class about Race Relations, the professor brought up a slide discussing groups that 'used' to face discrimination. Jews were given as an example, labeled on the side in bold letters as having 'no stigma.'" In fact, according to FBI statistics, Jews face more hate crimes in America than any other religious group.

University of Michigan

Few schools in the nation have demonstrated more animus toward the Jewish people than the University of Michigan, whose student government passed an anti-Semitic resolution by an overwhelming vote of 17-3 which demonized Israel and condemned the United States for “complicity” in Israel’s defensive response to violent Palestinian terrorism which the resolution labeled “violent attacks on Gaza.” Michigan is also home to an anti-Israel hate group called Students Allied for Freedom and Equality (SAFE) which has publicly demonized Israel, repeated blood libels against the Jewish people, and promoted the Hamas-funded BDS movement which aims to economically isolate and destroy the Jewish state. The campus Hillel has repeatedly been the target of anti-Semitic harassment and vandalism including an incident in which red handprints meant to represent blood were painted on the Hillel building and the message “F*** Israel” was painted on a rock nearby.

Evidence:

In September 2021, The Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies at Michigan co-hosted an event titled "Palestinian Freedom, Israeli Apartheid, and Transnational Solidarity with anti-Semitic Rutgers professor Noura Erakat. During her address, Erakat demonized Israel, compared the Israeli treatment of Palestinians to Jim Crow laws in the American south, and declared that Israel is an “apartheid” regime.

In June 2021, the student government at the University of Michigan passed a resolution by a 17-3 vote which demonized Israel and called on the university administration “to recognize and condemn the system of apartheid instituted by the Israeli government.” The resolution was titled, "A Resolution Condemning the Israeli System of Apartheid and its State-Sanctioned Violence against the Palestinian People.”  It cited propaganda from anti-Israel groups to claim that "recognition of the system of apartheid and ethnic supremacy in Israel and Palestine that has the purpose of 'perpetuating the supremacy of one group – Jews – over another – Palestinians,' (in reference to Jewish Israelis)." The resolution further declared that both the university and the United States have “complicity” in “violent attacks on Gaza and the Israeli system of apartheid” because “we as US residents contribute to the military aid sent to the IDF by paying taxes and we as a university engages in research and development for weapons manufacturers that sell arms to the IDF…” 

In June 2021, the executive board of Students Allied for Freedom and Equality (SAFE)—an anti-Israel campus hate group—released an open letter to the campus community which claimed to "confront the University of Michigan's failure to condemn Israeli state-sanctioned violence against Palestinians in recent weeks." The letter demonized Israel, repeated blood libels against the Jewish people, and promoted the Hamas-funded BDS movement which aims to economically isolate and destroy the Jewish state. The letter claimed “that the Nakba never ended, and that settler colonialism, occupation, and ethnic cleansing in Palestine persist” and that “Israeli violence escalated in Jerusalem in an effort to continue a centuries’ old ethnic cleansing campaign.” It also urged the administration to "End all University-sponsored trips to Israel," a form of academic BDS. The letter was signed by 23 student organizations and hundreds of individual students.

In June 2021, students and community members at the University of Michigan held an on-campus vigil for Palestinians who were killed in Gaza. Numerous students interviewed by the Michigan Daily used the occasion to demonize Israel and spread lies and Hamas propaganda about the Jewish state, including accusing Israel of “settler colonialism,” “ethnic genocide,” and “murder.” "I’m exhausted from people trying to minimize and deny the ethnic genocide placed onto the Palestinian people, and Israeli sanctioned apartheid. I’m overall exhausted from witnessing Palestinian bodies pile up in numbers, only for Zionists to then later try to justify us being murdered,” commented one student.  

In June 2021, multiple incidents of anti-Semitic harassment and vandalism occurred targeting the campus chapter of Hillel. “On Friday, we discovered red handprints painted in front of our Hillel building. On Saturday morning, we were alerted to hateful messaging, “F*** Israel” in bold letters, painted on the side of the rock facing Hillel. These incidents are anti-Israel, antisemitic, and intended to target our Hillel community,” Hillel reported in a social media post. The red handprints were thought to signify Jews having blood on their hands.

In May 2021, students and alumni at the Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan released a "Statement of Solidarity with the Palestinian People," which demonized Israel as an "apartheid system" that is utilizing "brutal tools of colonization, occupation and ethnic cleansing" and argued that attempts to halt the Hamas-funded BDS movement to destroy Israel are preventing "discussions of structural racism." 

In May 2021, reports surfaced about a Jewish student at the University of Michigan who faced harassment and bullying for defending Israel. The student painted over anti-Semitic commentary in a campus free-art area that demonized Israel with the messages "Stop Jewish Hate" and "Israel wants peace." The sentiment "F-ck Israel" was then painted over her sentiments. After again attempting to paint over these attacks, bystanders accused her of supporting “ethnic cleansing” and “genocide” and she later received death threats and anti-Israel slurs.

In May 2021, numerous campus groups and university organizations including The Middle Eastern and North African Law Students Association, the Muslim Law Students Association and the Michigan Chapter of the International Refugee Assistance Project, as well as The Graduate Employees Organization 3550, released statements demonizing Israel and urging measures that would lead to its destruction.

In May 2021, the University of Michigan student government issued a press release that was signed by SAFE as well as the Arab Student Association and the Muslim Students Association titled "To our Palestinian friends and the U-M community at large." The press release demonized Israel by echoing Hamas propaganda and promoting the Hamas-funded BDS movement. The release claimed that “the actions of the Israeli occupying forces throughout Palestine are inhumane, international war crimes” and that “This is not a ‘conflict,’ but emblematic of Israeli settler- colonialism, ethnic cleansing, and apartheid.”

Jewish students who criticized this one-sided student government statement were met with anti-Semitic slurs including "nose check," "Zionist pigs" and "Israel apologists.”

When the student government held a “Community Concerns” meeting to allow discussion on the statement demonizing Israel, student senators made anti-Semitic statements and attempted to deny Jewish students their right to free speech. "I have no interest in representing Pro-Zionist student voices, as long as you hold these stances, you’re not welcome to sit at the table of liberation," said one senator. Another student declared, "I’m not here to make the colonizers feel comfortable when the mainstream media decides to broadcast broken windows of an Israeli building rather than thousands of innocent Palestinians killed. If you only like to talk about the reaction of the oppressed, rather than the cause of the oppression, congratulations —you play a vital role in keeping colonialism and genocide." 

In October 2020, Romance, Language and Literatures, and the Jewish-Muslim Research Network co-hosted an event titled “Why Race Still Matters." During the event, speaker Alana Lentin demonized and delegitimized Israel, stating falsely that those who claim the Jews are indigenous to Israel are “quite ridiculous.”

In September 2020, The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures held an event that featured well-known anti-Semitic professor Sa’ed Atshan on a panel. Atshan predictably lived up to his reputation by demonizing Israel as a “right-wing racist militaristic violent Israeli state” and also invoking the Holocaust in his criticism of Israel—another common tactic of Jew-haters.

University of California-Los Angeles

UCLA is well-deserving of its notorious reputation for Jew-hatred. The UCLA student government unanimously passed a resolution declaring Israel to be guilty of "ethnic cleansing in Palestine” without giving Jewish students or Hillel the opportunity to voice their objections first. Numerous campus departments including the Department of English, the Asian-American Studies Department, and the Department of Gender Studies have endorsed statements demonizing and delegitimizing Israel or have invited speakers that did the same. UCLA is home to a chapter of the Hamas-funded campus hate group Students for Justice in Palestine which has promoted the genocidal BDS movement against Israel. Many among the UCLA faculty hold similar views, with 50 faculty members attacking an administrative statement opposing anti-Semitism because it did not explicitly express support for the terrorist Palestinian regime.

Evidence: 

In February 2022, the UCLA chapter of the Hamas-funded campus hate group Students for Justice in Palestine urged its supporters to "tell the university why you are supporting our boycott and why you reject all Zionist sources of funding at UCLA.” The campaign was to promote a boycott of "the UCLA Public Affairs program's Zionist-funded Congresswoman Lynn Schenk scholarship."

In February 2022, former UCLA philosophy lecturer Matthew Harris threatened to perpetrate a mass shooting on campus, forcing classes online. He released an 803-page manifesto that promoted Jew-hatred and anti-white racism with statements such as "Whites and Jews shall die" and "Violence against Jews should happen. Retaliation and retribution for what they have stolen is legitimate and a good thing."

In December 2021, the UCLA Luskin Center for History and Policy co-hosted an event titled "Deadlock in Israel-Palestine - How to Imagine a Better Future? (Part Two)." One of the speakers at the event, Areej Sabbagh-Khoury, used the occasion to demonize Israel, claiming that “[T]he majority of the Palestinians live under enduring colonial occupation that operates through the rule of emergency and devastates their mere existence."

In October 2021, the Department of English at UCLA held an event titled "Literature and Political Activism” during which two UCLA English faculty members, Yogita Goyal and Saree Makdisi, demonized and delegitimized Israel. Goyal accused Israel of engaging in "vaccine apartheid," "vaccine imperialism," or "vaccine genocide" against the Palestinians in distributing the Covid-19 vaccine, a form of rhetoric that echoes ancient Jewish blood libels. Makdisi argued that liberals who support Israel are being hypocrites and asked “What are the mechanisms that enable their support for ethnic cleansing [in Palestine] and home demolition and uprooting people and this kind of thing?”

In June 2021, The Daily Bruin published a student op-ed titled "UCLA must stop repressing pro-Palestinian counter-narratives." The article demonized Israel as promoting a “draconian legal system [that] systematically erases indigenous Palestinians and normalizes occupation, the very definition of a settler-colonial state.” It also endorsed the genocidal and Hamas-funded BDS movement against Israel. 

In June 2021, fifty UCLA faculty members published an open letter directed to Chancellor Block and Vice-Chancellor Bradley that demonized Israel and scolded the campus administration for condemning anti-Semitism while failing to express support for the Palestinians: "Your letter [against antisemitism] addressed itself, however, to violence and hatred directed against one community in particular, not to all communities on campus, including at least one community that is still mourning and counting its dead…”

In May 2021, the UCLA student government went ahead with a meeting to discuss a
resolution "voicing solidarity with Palestinian students" which demonized Israel and declared the Jewish state guilty of ethnic cleansing, settler-colonialism, and apartheid. Representatives from Hillel and the Jewish community at UCLA, who had objected to the resolution, were invited to offer public comment a mere 45 minutes before the meeting started, effectively silencing their objections. The resolution that ultimately passed included an endorsement of the genocidal and Hamas-funded BDS movement against Israel and a call to divest from the “ethnic cleansing in Palestine by the Israeli government.”

In May 2021, the Asian American Studies Department at UCLA released a "Statement of Solidarity with Palestine" that demonized and delegitimized Israel as guilty of “seventy-three years of settler colonialism, racial apartheid, and occupation.” The statement also accused Israel of "yellow-washing" by highlighting its “support of Asian and Asian American individuals as proof of multicultural democracy.” 

In May 2021, The Department of Gender Studies and the Center for the Study of Women at UCLA both signed a statement titled "Gender Studies Departments in Solidarity with Palestinian Feminist Collective" that demonized Israel, claiming falsely that the Jewish state “is using violent force, punitive bureaucracy, and the legal system to expel Palestinians from their rightful homes and to remove Palestinian people from their land.”

In March 2021, the UCLA student government unanimously passed "A Resolution Calling for the UC to Divest from War" which referred to "ethnic cleansing in Palestine by the Israeli government." Jewish students and Hillel objected not only to the language in the resolution which demonized Israel and supported the genocidal BDS movement but also to the fact that they were given no opportunity to express their views before the resolution’s passage.

In May 2019, SFSU Professor Rabab Abdulhadi gave a guest lecture to an anthropology class at UCLA in which she likened Zionism to white supremacy and proclaimed that “pro-Israeli groups...[and] white supremacists are very much in alliance” in promoting an “Islamophobic Zionism agenda.” When a Jewish student in class objected to Abdulhadi’s tirade, the professor responded that “Jews come in all sorts of stripes and colors and backgrounds and so on. I align myself with the Jews who are opposing Israel’s settler colonialism and I ask people who are Jewish, it’s their choice, you can decide what you want to actually stop the alliances with white supremacy and do a different alliance… I don’t agree with you and I believe it [Israel] is part of white supremacy. I’m sorry if you feel that way but maybe you need to kind of check this and look into it more.” At the end of Abdulhadi’s lecture, the course instructor, Associate Professor Kyeyoung Park, told the class, “I agree with this speaker. That’s why I brought her.” One student in the class characterized Abdulhadi’s address as “hate speech” and added that “Watching an educator belittle a student to tears with such blatant ignorance leaves me to question the values UCLA wishes to uphold.”

The University of Houston is home to an extremist chapter of the Hamas-funded campus hate group Students for Justice in Palestine which has repeatedly hosted events and protests promoting anti-Semitic propaganda and urging the suspension of normal relations with Israel—an attempt to isolate and destroy the Jewish state. The student government at Houston recently passed a resolution allegedly for the "Protection and Support of Pro-Palestine Students and Activism" which demonized Israel and delegitimized it as a Jewish state.  Other incidents of anti-Semitism have occurred in Houston including the “Zoombombing” of a virtual lecture by an Israeli professor who was interrupted by loud noises and chants of “Heil Hitler.”

Evidence:

In February 2022, a virtual lecture by Israeli professor Sason Shaik, who teaches at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, was “Zoombombed” by individuals who disrupted the event with loud noises and chants of “Heil Hitler.” The event was co-organized by faculty from the University of Houston and the University of California-Davis. Anti-Semitic messages were also posted in the group chat for the event.

In January 2022, SJP at the University of Houston co-hosted a protest titled “Hands off Palestine” which was held off-campus. A social media post advertising the event demonized Israel by claiming that Palestinian families “have been terrorized by Israeli settlers and military” and by referring to Israel as “occupied Palestine.” Following the event, SJP posted an image of a sign from the event reading "Israel Murders, USA Pays" on their Instagram account.

In November 2021, SJP hosted an event titled "Nothing Normal About Occupation - Teach-In on Normalization with Israel." A social media post about the event claimed that "There can be no 'peace' without freedom, justice, liberation and return for Palestinians" and urged people to “identify and fight against [normalization] in our daily life.” The anti-normalization movement, like the BDS movement, is an attempt to isolate Israel and make it a pariah among nations.

In July 2021, the student government at Houston passed a resolution allegedly for the "Protection and Support of Pro-Palestine Students and Activism" which demonized Israel and delegitimized it as a Jewish state.  The resolution called Zionism a "system of oppression defined by its victims as a 'settler-colonial movement whose goal was the establishment of a Jewish state on the ruins and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people.'" It also claimed, in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, that pro-Palestinian activism is not associated with anti-Semitism and that "The University of Houston Student Government Association unequivocally rejects the debasement of Palestinian activism through the false conflation of anti-Zionism with antisemitism." 

In May 2021, an officer of Houston Students for Justice in Palestine—a Hamas-funded hate group—was quoted in the campus newspaper, The Daily Cougar, minimizing terrorism against Israel and demonizing the Jewish state by claiming that recent incidents of violence in Gaza are not “occurring in a vacuum but are connected to 70 years of Israeli ethnic cleansing," and that "Palestinians will still be under illegal military occupations without freedom of movement under a fascist and racist system of apartheid."

In April 2021, Houston SJP joined other anti-Israel groups in Texas in celebrating “Israeli Apartheid Week,” an anti-Semitic hate-fest dedicated to destroying the Jewish state. The theme of the event was “Imagining Liberation Through Persecution.”

In October 2019, SJP held an event on “Palestine and US Electoral Politics” where both the student moderator and invited speaker Mohammed Nabulsi demonized Israel. Nabulsi claimed that Israel is “protected by the U.S.” despite awareness that “Israel’s violating human rights” and “is committing atrocities or killing civilians or whatever..."

University of Minnesota

The University of Minnesota has in recent years become a locus of Jew-hatred in the Midwest. It is home to a chapter of the Hamas-funded campus hate group, Students for Justice in Palestine, which has participated in the international hatefest known as “Israeli Apartheid Week” and invited speakers including Mohammed El-Kurd, a vehement anti-Semite who has called for the release of Palestinian murderers and terrorists, to speak on campus. Several official university departments including the Department of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies (GWSS) and the department of Race, Indigeneity, Gender & Sexuality Studies (RIGS) have also signed statements promoting Jew-hatred and demonizing the Jewish state.

Evidence:

In March 2022, the Hamas-funded campus hate group Students for Justice in Palestine co-hosted an event with other student groups as part of the genocidal hatefest known as “Israeli Apartheid Week.” The event is titled “Minneapolis to Palestine: Solidarity Against State Terror.” An online announcement for the event displays an image of two policemen from the U.S. and Israel restraining a small child.

In January 2022, UMN SJP hosted an event with Palestinian journalist and organizer Mohammed El-Kurd. El-Kurd is a vehement anti-Semite who has called for Israel to release all Palestinian prisoners including those convicted of murder and terrorism and has openly celebrated the escape of Palestinian terrorists convicted of attacking innocent Israeli civilians. He has claimed that “Hamas has a right to exist under international law, [which] doesn’t mean I agree or disagree with them.”

In November 2021, the campus newspaper, The Minnesota Daily, published an article that urged the university to rescind a program that allowed students to study abroad in Israel. The article demonized and delegitimized Israel, calling it "Occupied Palestine."

In October 2021, SJP held an event titled "Palestine 101." An online announcement for the event demonized Israel and accused it of “ongoing settler colonialism.” 

 In October 2021, SJP urged students and faculty to sign on to a public letter urging the university to halt a study abroad program with Technion-Israel, an Israel Institute of Technology. The letter demonized and delegitimized Israel, referring to it as “Occupied Palestine" and accused Israel of “the violent occupation of the Palestinian homeland, and the eradication and ethnic cleansing of its people by use of force.”

In June 2021, SJP issued a public letter urging Minnesota President Joan Gabel and the Board of Regents to divest from Israeli companies, thereby promoting the Hamas-funded Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel. The letter demonized and delegitimized Israel by referring to it only in lowercase letters (Israel) and by labeling it "Occupied Palestine." The letter repeated the false Hamas propaganda claims that Israel engages in "racist violence" and "genocide" against Palestinians. SJP urged community members to sign their names to this letter.

In May 2021, the Department of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies (GWSS) and the department of Race, Indigeneity, Gender & Sexuality Studies (RIGS) in addition to the Imagining Transnational Solidarities Research Circle (ITSRC) and other faculty members and student groups at Minnesota all signed on to the Agitate Journal’s "Statement In Solidarity With The People Of Palestine." That statement promotes the genocidal and Hamas-funded BDS movement against Israel and also demonizes Israel and denies Jews the right to self-determination. The statement falsely claims that Israel is guilty of “brutal settler-colonial violence and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians...”

The Department of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Minnesota also signed a statement on "Gender Studies Departments in Solidarity with Palestinian Feminist Collective" which demonized Israel, claiming that the Jewish state uses “violent force, punitive bureaucracy, and the legal system to expel Palestinians from their rightful homes and to remove Palestinian people from their land” and equating the creation of Israel to “ethnic cleansing.”   

In March 2021, a coalition of pro-Palestinian students drafted an open letter to "Oppose Minnesota Hillel’s referendum to adopt the IHRA’s working definition of antisemitism," which claimed falsely that "[The] IHRA definition suppresses free speech, a First Amendment right...”  Over 180 community members signed the letter.

In February 2021, SJP at UMN held a "BDS Movement Presentation" to promote the genocidal and terrorist-funded BDS effort to economically strangle the Jewish state.

Florida State University:

Florida State University hosts an extremist chapter of the Hamas-funded campus hate group Students for Justice in Palestine which has ludicrously equated the Russian military invasion of Ukraine with Israel’s alleged “occupation” of Palestine and has also repeatedly defended FSU Senate President Ahmad Daraldik who launched an anti-Semitic website and demeaned Jews on social media. When pro-Israel speaker Ben Shapiro was scheduled to speak on campus, members of SJP and other groups urged the university to cancel and then protested his speech with genocidal and demonizing slogans including, "From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be Free," "End the Occupation," "Israel is an Apartheid State," and "Israel is a Terrorist State."

Evidence:

In March 2022, the FSU chapter of the Hamas-funded campus hate group Students for Justice in Palestine held an event during which they outrageously equated Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine to Israel’s alleged “occupation” of Palestine. The graphic for the event shows the Ukrainian and Palestinian flags side-by-side and states “From Ukraine to Palestine, we must oppose violence and war.”

In February 2022, the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity held a hazing event during which pledges had swastikas drawn on their “shirts or body parts.” Images of the students were later circulated on social media. Liora Rez, executive director of StopAntiSemitism.org, reported “that a Jewish student who was pledging at Pi Kappa Phi had a swastika painted on his head, was paraded around, and then further humiliated with his image circulated on social media.” FSU officials responded by suspending the fraternity for hazing and alcohol violations.

In November 2021, Students for a Democratic Society at FSU issued a statement urging the university to cancel an upcoming event featuring conservative, pro-Israel speaker Ben Shapiro. The statement called Shapiro a “racist” and demonized Israel by claiming falsely that it is a “settler-colonial Israeli apartheid state, which has been engaged in the displacement and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians for decades." It also attempted to limit open discourse by declaring "No fascists on our campus," referring to Shapiro.   

When the university did not cancel Shapiro’s speech, the campus chapter of the Hamas-funded hate group Students for Justice in Palestine organized a protest of the event. Students chanted genocidal slogans which delegitimized and demonized Israel including, "From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be Free," "End the Occupation," "Israel is an Apartheid State," and "Israel is a Terrorist State."

In June 2021, SJP at FSU held a “BDS Organizing Meeting” to support the genocidal and Hamas-inspired Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement to economically strangle the Jewish state.

In January 2021, a student senator at FSU who is known for making anti-Semitic statements introduced a resolution to support the genocidal BDS movement against Israel and urged the university to divest from companies that do business with Israel.

In August 2020, after FSU President John Thrasher endorsed the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism, SJP at FSU published an "Open Letter from Students for Justice in Palestine at Florida State University" which condemned Thrasher’s decision and expressed support for the Student Government President, Ahmad Daraldik, who had made anti-Semitic statements in the past on social media.  Numerous other campus organizations and individuals endorsed the letter.

In August 2020, SJP at FSU held an event titled “Summer Book Club: Freedom is a Constant Struggle” which featured numerous speakers who made anti-Semitic comments and demonized Israel. Speaker Dana Alhasan claimed that “there’s no room for Zionism in feminism because Zionism is an inherently racist ideology” and “Talking about the IDF, they’re called the Israeli Defense Forces, but I always make a point to say IOF, Israeli Occupying Forces ‘cuz they’re not defending anything, they’re occupying.” Another speaker, Shelby Shoup, accused Israel of “occupation and apartheid and home demolition and settlement expansion.”

In July 2020, SJP at FSU distributed a "Call to Action Toolkit" to supporters to counter a student government resolution to adopt the IHRA working definition of anti-Semitism. The toolkit demonized Israel, claiming that the resolution would redefine “criticism of racist Israeli settler-colonialism, apartheid, and occupation as an example of antisemitism...”  

In June 2020, shortly after he ascended to the Senate Presidency of the Student Government Association at FSU, it was revealed that Ahmad Daraldik had created an anti-Semitic website while in high school which promoted anti-Semitic tropes claiming that Israel performs medical experiments on Palestinians and compared Israel to Nazi Germany. Daraldik had also shared additional anti-Semitic content on social media, including a staged, fake photograph of an IDF soldier pointing a gun at a Palestinian child which he captioned “Stupid Jew thinks he is cool.” Despite calls for his removal, Daraldik was able to retain his position after a vote by the student senate. Instead of condemning Daraldik’s remarks, SJP at FSU instead expressed unmitigated support for him and claimed that the calls to remove him from his position were “racially and politically motivated to smear and silence Palestinian students and critics of the state of Israel" and “rooted in anti-Arab racism and Islamophobia." Even in the midst of the controversy, Daraldik continued to share Jew-hatred on social media. BDS Report notes that in July 2020 he had “just shared a new video on his Instagram story claiming that the problem with Jews is they make everything about themselves."

Boston University

In recent years, Boston University has witnessed a disturbing and increasing incidence of Jew-hatred on campus. The university fosters a chapter of the Hamas-funded campus hate group Students for Justice in Palestine that has taken extreme action to promote its noxious views including dropping an enormous banner, featuring an image of an Israeli shooting a Palestinian woman, from a campus building and painting the campus rock with the pro-terrorist slogan “Long live the Intifada!” The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at the university signed a statement demonizing Israel and at least ten other faculty members have signed statements supporting the academic boycott of Israel, part of the genocidal and Hamas-funded BDS movement against the Jewish state.

Evidence:

In March 2022, the Boston University chapter of the Hamas-funded campus hate group Students for Justice in Palestine participated in the anti-Israel hatefest known as “Israeli Apartheid Week.” Members of the group erected a mock “apartheid wall” meant to mimic the security fence erected along the Gaza border to deter Palestinian terror attacks on Israeli civilians. One panel of the wall quoted the genocidal slogan "From the river to the sea" with an image of the entirety of Israel, suggesting that the entirety of Israel should be destroyed. Another enormous banner depicting an Israeli soldier shooting a Palestinian woman was also dropped from the roof of the College of Arts and Sciences on the BU campus. The banner urged “End the Deadly Exchange Free Palestine,” but clearly sought to demonize Israel for the conflict.

In December 2021, SJP at BU painted the BU rock on campus with the slogan "Long Live the Intifada,” thus celebrating the deadly outpouring of Palestinian terrorism against Jews and Israel. SJP then posted an image of the rock on social media with a message stating, "The Intifada is an action that lives within the Palestinian people every day, and exists as a permanent source of inspiration against Israeli occupation and apartheid."

In September 2021, BU SJP held an event promoting the genocidal and Hamas-funded Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel, an attempt to socially and economically isolate the Jewish state.

In May 2021, the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at BU signed on to the statement "Gender Studies Departments in Solidarity with Palestinian Feminist Collective." That statement demonized and delegitimized Israel, claiming that “Israel is using violent force, punitive bureaucracy, and the legal system to expel Palestinians from their rightful homes and to remove Palestinian people from their land,” in addition to numerous other statements.  

In May 2021, BU SJP released a statement that repeatedly demonized Israel, claiming that “The Zionist occupation stands on pillars of terror, racism and lies. It is anti-democratic to the core. It is threatened and frightened by the righteous resistance to the Palestinian people to the program of ethnic cleansing and apartheid that Israel has pursued since its inception.” The statement also accused BU of complicity in "Israel's oppression of Palestinians" because “BU's endowment is undoubtedly invested in numerous companies which aid the occupation, it offers an Israeli study abroad program to Haifa, and has even sent BU police officers on trips to Israel for IDF-led 'Counter-Terrorism' training.”

In September 2020, SJP held a protest off-campus at the Consulate General for the United Arab Emirates to urge the message "NO to Normalization with Israel,” an attempt to make Israel, a democratic nation with an excellent record on human rights, a worldwide pariah. An ad for the protest demonized Israel, claiming, "The normalization of ties with Israel by the UAE and later Bahrain has shown the world that Israeli aggression, colonization, and apartheid are worth more to the ruling cliques of those countries than the lives and rights of Palestinians to freedom and self-determination... Normalization with Israel means normalizing settler-colonialism and apartheid. We must come together to reject this!" 

In March 2019, as part of Israeli Apartheid Week, SJP at BU held an event titled "Celebrate the March of Return/Demand BU Reject Israeli Apartheid." Promotions for the event demonized Israel and promoted anti-Semitic tropes of blood libel against Jews by falsely claiming that “the Israeli 'Defense' Forces respond each time with massacres... Israeli snipers purposefully shoot Palestinians in the legs (with bullets which expand once they enter the body and are banned under international law) leaving Palestinians crippled for life, without access to medical care in Gaza.” The statement also demanded that BU shut down the study abroad program with Israel.
