SJP FSU: Spreading Hate on Campus and Online

Canary Mission investigated anti-Semitism and support for terrorism among anti-Israel activists at Florida State University (FSU). 26 students and professionals affiliated with the campus group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) were found to have posted over 150 times on Twitter and Facebook, expressing a wide variety of hatred against Jews and Israel.

A key finding was the large support for terrorism and violence. 59 of the 165 posts (36%) were endorsements or promotion of terror as well as calls for intifada and violence against Jews.

The content of the other posts included:

  • Mocking the Holocaust
  • Comparing Israelis to Nazis
  • Cursing Jews in Arabic
  • Anti-Semitic conspiracy theories
  • Hatred and demonization of Israel

Of particular note was Reem Zaitoon who tweeted multiple times her desire to “f**k up a Zionist.” As well as Yousef Mohamed who repeatedly cursed Jew’s mothers, fathers and sisters.

FSU SJP as an organization was found to have spread incitement to terror, defended the Knife Intifada and honored terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

 

Patrick Little’s Anti-Semitism Problem

Patrick Little is running for the United States Senate on a neo-Nazi and anti-Jewish platform. Little is a Holocaust denier that calls for America to be “free of Jews”. He has shown support for terrorism against Israelis as well as proposed to introduce a bill to “nuke every Israeli town with a population of over 10,000 people”. Little sees White Nationalists and Pro-Palestinians as natural allies. Is this the kind of person you want in office?

SJP and the “Intifada”

SJP Intifada Facebook

April 18, 2018, was Yom Hazikaron – Israeli Memorial Day.

On this day we remember the fallen soldiers and civilians who died defending the State of Israel and at the hands of terrorists.

Hundreds of these brave individuals lost their lives during periods of “intifada” unrest in Israel in shootings, rock-throwings, stabbings, car-rammings and bombings of civilian targets by terrorist attackers.

Canary Mission’s NEW report, SJP and “Intifada,” sheds light on a shocking trend whereby activists from the campus hate-group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) actively show support for these periods of violent unrest.

The report also includes a NEW video that comes with a strong warning to sensitive viewers. The video highlights the tragedy of terror attacks that SJP appallingly supports.

The violence of “intifada” is pure terrorism. Nevertheless, declaring support for “intifada” is acceptable speech amongst SJP and its activists.

Scores of SJP activists and chapters have expressed their endorsement of “intifada” on their official social media pages and through chanting pro-“intifada” slogans at their events, demonstrations and disruptive activities.

The SJP and “Intifada report is a snapshot of SJP’s actions and includes:

  • 54 SJP activists, officers and affiliates who have all expressed support for “intifada”
  • 10 SJP chapters that have encouraged support for “intifada”
  • An exposé of radical SJP founder, UC Berkeley professor Hatem Bazian, who in 2004 called for an “intifada” in the United States

Anti-Semitism at Wayne State University

Wayne State Uni SJP2 copy

Report on Wayne State University, Detroit MI (March 2018)

At Wayne State University (WSU), today marks the beginning of “Palestine Awareness Week” aka Israel Apartheid Week. The student group running it — Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at WSU — presents itself as a “human rights” organization, but the actions of their leaders and activists show the opposite.

The Canary Mission March 2018 Report on Wayne State University has uncovered a highly disturbing pattern of anti-Semitism and support for terror within the university-sanctioned group. The report showcases 13 activists with SJP WSU who have spread a wide variety of hatred against Jews, Israel and the United States. This includes:

  • Cursing Jews in both English and Arabic
  • Praising terrorism
  • Spreading incitement
  • Comparing Israel to Nazi Germany
  • Accusing Israel of committing another Holocaust
  • Claiming former President Bush was behind the 9/11 terror attacks

It should come as no surprise therefore that SJP WSU is also a strong supporter of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement.

SJP WSU Activity

Supporting Terrorists

On November 11, 2016 and 2017, SJP WSU posted photos to Facebook memorializing Yasser Arafat on the anniversary of his death. The 2017 post included an Arafat quote, reading: “The victory march will continue until the Palestinian flag flies in Jerusalem and in all of Palestine.”

Yasser Arafat was the leader of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and is known by some as the “father of modern terrorism.” In 1996, he told Arab diplomats: “We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion. Jews will not want to live among Arabs. I have no use for Jews. They are and remain Jews.”

On April 8, 2017, SJP WSU posted a photo to Facebook of a painting honoring terrorist Leila Khaled, displayed at an SJP Palestinian cultural event.

Khaled was a leading member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and participated in the hijacking of TWA Flight 840 in 1969 and El Al Flight 219 in 1970. In a 2014 interview, Khaled opined that the Palestinian second intifada failed because it was not violent enough.

On November 25, 2016, SJP WSU tweeted and posted on Facebook in support of terrorist Rasmea Odeh.

Odeh was a key military operative with the PFLP. In 1969, she masterminded a supermarket bombing that killed two college students. She also attempted to bomb the British consulate in Jerusalem. Odeh later moved to the United States but was deported to Jordan in 2017 for immigration fraud.

Denying Jerusalem’s Jewish History

On December 8, 2017, SJP WSU shared a Facebook video of Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas stating [00:00:15]: “Jerusalem is a city that is Palestinian, Arab, Christian, Islamic and the eternal capital of Palestine.“

Abbas was protesting U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to relocate the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

On October 19, 2016, SJP WSU tweeted a picture taken at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, stating: “Victory of Palestine against Israel: Jerusalem Holy Site Declared Muslim, Not Jewish, in United Nations Resolution.”

BDS Support

On April 9, 2017, SJP WSU officers posed for a Facebook photo before a mock “apartheid wall” that featured a call to boycott Israel and included a quote associating Israel with Nazi propaganda methods.

The wall bore a quote often attributed to Nazi Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels: “If you repeat a lie enough times, it becomes the truth.”

SJP WSU revised the quote, by replacing the word “truth” with the word “politics” and then crossed out “politics” and substituted the word “Israel,” written with fake blood dripping from the letters. Below the quote appeared the hashtag: “#BOYCOTTISRAEL.”

The quote embodied an anti-Semitic idea known as the “Big Lie,” which was used by Nazi Germany to demonize Jews and to promote the boycott of Jewish businesses.”

SJP WSU used the wall as early as March 2016.

TWITTER SUSPENDED – CALL TO ACTION

UPDATE:

As of Feb 27th, 9pm Eastern Standard Time, the Canary Mission Twitter has been REINSTATED!

Due to the outpouring of support from our followers, Twitter has reinstated the Canary Mission account. Thank you to everyone who contacted Twitter and made this happen!

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Too often social media giants reward hatred and penalize those who fight for a tolerant society.

Canary Mission, a university campus watchdog that exposes hatred and anti-Semitism across the political spectrum, has been outrageously suspended from Twitter.

In the meantime, neo-Nazis, terrorist organizations and those dedicated to the destruction of Israel continue to operate freely. Among them, Hatem Bazian – a repeated offender of anti-Semitism, David Duke – former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and even terror organization Hamas!

The Canary Mission Twitter account, by contrast, has been solely utilized to expose the social media posts and actions of those who spread hate.

The suspension of Canary Mission comes at a particularly sensitive time. In the wake of an overwhelmingly tragic school shooting, we face the the stark reality that social media posts must be taken seriously.

Our database contains hundreds of individuals who have shown support for or openly threatened violence on social media. In fact, many bigots and racists on our site have bragged about their ownership, ability and desire to use firearms.

We have also uncovered individuals studying or working in helping professions, who have posted a desire to injure or even kill Jews!

Exposing these potentially dangerous individual’s posts to the public, who then in turn report them to the authorities, has proven to be a vital tool. Last year, our tweet exposing a preschool teacher who had been spreading violent hatred against Jews, led to her swift removal from her position working with small children.

Despite this, Canary Mission according to Twitter, is violating their rule against “hateful conduct,” since we also call out white supremacists, Hamas supporters and anti-Israel activists, many of whom praise Hitler, who then complain to Twitter that we are acting against them.

This claim is absolutely ludicrous. As clearly laid out in our About page, Canary Mission merely “gathers content from publicly available sources.” Anyone who complains about what Canary Mission said about them on Twitter needs to read the content of the tweet and face the hatred in their own words.


Hundreds of racists and bigots have taken to Twitter in order to celebrate. Various Twitter users have even attempted to take the credit. Included in the celebrants was Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) leader Ben Lorber, who expressed his joy in a Facebook with the tagline “Am Yisrael byeeeee.” This is the true face of hatred.

ben lorber

Much more significantly, we have received an outpouring of shock, concern and desire to help from our supporters across North America and from around the world. We have been inundated with emails and messages through our Facebook page by individuals looking to help. This is a true testament to the positive work we are doing. We are humbled and truly grateful to all those who have reached out to us. We are including an ACTION ALERT at the bottom of this email for specifically for all of you.

If the Canary Mission Twitter account is indeed permanently removed, then hatred has won a temporary victory. Whatever happens, our detractors should realize and our supporters can take to heart, that this will not change a single aspect of the work that Canary Mission does.

We will do our best to get our account reinstated and if not, our mission will not change, we will not falter. We will continue our mission to fight hatred and anti-Semitism.

We encourage everyone to:

SJP Activists Laugh at The Holocaust and Openly Support Hitler

FEATURED BLOG holocaust

This Saturday January 27, 2018 is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

As #WeRemember becomes a worldwide focus, anti-Semitism watchdog Canary Mission has released a damning new report on campus anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and its activists.

A Safe Space for Holocaust Abuse

SJP chapters across North America are notorious for harboring anti-Semites.

The new report exposes 29 individuals affiliated with SJP who mock the Holocaust, show support for Hitler and wish death on Jews.

Some of the many horrific quotes from students include:

“Jews, you need to stop complaining about the holocaust. Think about all of the money you saved by only needing one-way train tickets.” – Abdallah Ismail

“everytime I read about Hitler, I fall in love all over again.” – Rawan Qaddoura

“hitler should have took you all.” – Nadera Masad

Chapter Holocaust Scandals

Multiple SJP chapters have been complicit in their own abuses of the Holocaust.

The report highlights instances of SJP chapters disrupting Holocaust memorial days, comparing Jews to Nazis on social media and hosting radical speakers who make light of the national Jewish tragedy.

Radical Founder Repeatedly Abuses the Holocaust

SJP founder, UC Berkeley professor Hatem Bazian, has himself repeatedly abused the memory of the Holocaust in order to promote his radical anti-Israel agenda. Read the report for the extensive details.

This Holocaust Remembrance Day, as #weremember, the hatred that caused a national tragedy is still alive in SJP chapters across North American campuses. Let’s speak out against SJP bigotry and help make sure that we #neveragain have to witness such an atrocity.

NSJP Conference 2017: A Showcase of Anti-Semites and Terror Supporters

438cb7c6-4c5f-4f12-91ce-56f01bae34ef

Campus anti-Semitism watchdog Canary Mission identified 90 individuals who gathered together in October for the 2017 annual National

Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) conference at the University of Houston (UH), Texas.

The Canary Mission Report on the 2017 NSJP Conference exposes numerous organizers, panelists and attendees who shared a wide variety of anti-Semitism, support for terror and bigotry across social media.

The report also includes 7 NSJP conference attendees from previous years who shared similar hateful rhetoric on their social media.

University of Houston Again!houston

In January 2017 Canary Mission released a damning Report on University of Houston (UH).

The exposé included 13 students whose offensive social media posts included hatred of Jews and Israel, praise for Hitler, mockery of the Holocaust and threats of violence against Jews.

Many of the profiled students were affiliated with the UH chapter ofStudents for Justice in Palestine (SJP).

The umbrella organization, NSJP, failed to denounce the anti-Semitism from SJP activists at UH. Then, in October 2017, in a shameful display of solidarity, NSJP held their 2017 National Conference at UH.

NSJP  2017 was a showcase of Students for Justice in Palestine members and affiliates who have spread anti-Semitism and support for terrorism on social media.

The tacit support for anti-Semitic students at UH should come as no surprise. First, SJP founder Hatem Bazian has repeatedly been exposed for anti-Semitism and support for violence. Second, the Canary Mission Report on the 2017 NSJP Conference paints a damning picture of SJP activists. Their 2017 event attracted bigots and anti-Semites from SJP chapters all over North America.

The list of outrageous comments from NSJP 2017 conference attendees include:

Samer Alhato, NSJP Workshop Leader
“@BarackObama shut up about gay marriage and go kill all the Jews.”
“I support Hamas and I send then money every month.”

Ahmed Hamad, NSJP Speaker
“When I stomp, I imagine zionists faces under my feet.” 

Mohammed Nabulsi, NSJP Organizer and Panelist
“[W]e must look to and support Palestinian resistance groups and civil organizations…such as the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Hamas and Palestine Islamic Jihad”

Brant Roberts, NSJP Organizer  
“Zionism is a disease that needs to end.”
“F**k that sh*t! I support what the PFLP & PLO have done in their cause to free the Palestinians.”

Hossam Gamea, NSJP Panelist
“Israel is funding Islamophobia and genocide against Muslims all over the world.”

Sarah Abdulmooti, NSJP Organizer
“Israel really needs to die and I pray it happens in my lifetime.”

Sara Mahmoud, NSJP Participant
“white jews are so entitled lmfaooo please die.” 

Reem Zaitoon, NSJP Participant 
“I’ll f**k up a Zionist.” 

Nora Abushaaban, NSJP Participant
“Same s**t, different toilet. Hitler wanted an all white race, Israelis want an all Zionist country.”
“I just hate Israelis. And they just happen to be Jews.”
“Hamas is not the bad guy.”

The Canary Mission NSJP exposé is the latest in a series of scandals to have hit SJP and its leader Hatem Bazian. They have been exposed so often for bigotry and racism that SJP is not taken seriously by university administrations and being abandoned by former members.

SJP hate speech and incitement is nonetheless intensifying.

Who will hold SJP accountable?

Support for Hitler in Canadian University

Jew Hatred at McMaster

“Everytime I read about Hitler, I fall in love all over again” and “Hitler should have took you all” are among scores of offensive comments flooding the social media pages of current and former students at McMaster U, Canada.

The Canary Mission December 2017 McMaster Report identifies 39 current and former students who posted over 280 bigoted comments on social media.

All have or had affiliations with the campus chapter of SPHR or Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights, a chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP).

The list of outrageous comments include:

  • “Death to America and white people” — Nadera Masad
  • “How long does it take a zionist woman to take out the trash?…………Nine months.” — Nadera Masad
  • “I honestly wish I was born at the time of the second world war just to see the genius, Hitler, at work.” — Rawan Qaddoura
  • “falastine ibladna wel ya7ood eklabna [palestine is our land and the jews are our dogs].” — Walid Abdulaziz
  • “Where is hitler when u need one?’ I literally ask this every day.” — Esra Bengizi
  • “I’m actually going to the rule the world and get rid of anyone who doesn’t have basic common sense or if you’re yahoodi [Jewish]” — Esra Bengizi

Yesterday the Algemeiner ran an article on the report. The response has been rapid, with McMaster students, Mac SPHR and individuals profiled in the report all addressing the concerning revelations.

Spotted at Mac, a McMaster community chat forum on Facebook with over 29,000 members, discussedthe issue.

The anti-Zionist Mac SPHR released a statement on their Facebook page that condemned the anti-Semitic comments posted by the numerous members and officers within their organization.

However the response was not all positive.

“The only good Zionist is a dead Zionist. Add that to my profile.”

This was the shockingly unrepentant tweet sent out by Nadera Masad within a day of being exposed for promoting violence against Jews and praising Hitler. Since over 6.4 million Jews currently reside in Israel, her statement is nothing short of a call for a genocide — in greater number than even her hero Hitler.

A few hours later she tweeted“I keep saying, we need to cleanse the world of creatures such as these dirty white Americans,” with the note“Add this to my canary profile.”

The Canary Mission McMaster exposé is the latest in a series of scandals to have hit SJP and its leader Hatem Bazian. They have been exposed so often for bigotry and racism that SJP is no longer seen as a serious player by university administrations or even former members.

REVEALED – The Secret Meetings Behind the Tufts Passover Scandal

On April 9, 2017, on the eve of the Jewish Passover holiday, several Tufts Community Union (TCU) student senators submitted a surprise BDS resolution that demonized Israel and called on the university to divest from four companies that do business with Israel. The resolution was authored by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP).

SJP was rightly blamed for their role in scheduling this surprise BDS vote on the eve of Passover. They ensured that Jews would not be present to defend themselves against an anti-Semitic attack on the right of Jews to self-determination.

To hide their shame, they also ensured the vote was held as a secret ballot.

The pre-Passover vote was yet another in a series of scandals for SJP. SJP and its leader Hatem Bazian have been exposed so often for its bigotry and racism that it is no longer seen as a serious player by University administrations and even former members.

The story was both covered in the media and by Canary Mission. We have since duly investigated and have now released a number of profiles on culprits in SJP (see links below)

However, on closer examination, the entire episode was only made possible by the fringe extremist organization Jewish Voice for Peace (a name that is false advertising on many levels).

Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) planned the entire vote.

JVP leader, Hannah Freedman revealed that the resolution authors chose not schedule the vote for the previous week’s senate meeting because “many of us were away at a conference last weekend when we had had [sic.] the resolution ready — and so we decided to put it this weekend.” Freedman omitted that the “conference” was the anti-Israel Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) National Member Meeting (NMM).

By scheduling the vote on the eve of Passover, when most Jews would not be around to vote, JVP deliberately undermined the Jewish community at Tufts – in favor of giving themselves more time to strategize against Israel.

It gets worse…

At least Seven (7) SJP Tufts leaders took part in the JVP conference – during which they made a presentation and collaborated with senior JVP officials. This included Parker Breza who admitted that Tufts SJP did not consult with any other student group other than JVP during the resolution drafting process.  

In summary, JVP prioritized a huddle with known anti-Semites over the democratic rights of Jews on campus.

Jewish Voice for Peace is neither a mainstream Jewish voice, nor is it interested in Peace.

EXCLUSIVE: SJP Founder, Hatem Bazian Caught in Another Anti-Semitism Scandal

On July 31, 2017, SJP founder and UC Berkeley Professor, Dr Hatem Bazian re-tweeted a meme from an infamous Twitter bigot and anti-Semite, Ron Hughes – an account that Bazian also Follows.

The meme was a classic anti-Semitic attack on Jews and Judaism.

bazian-exposed

The tweet accused a “Zionist” Twitter user of supporting “apartheid, occupation, ethnic cleansing, genocide” and theft of “Palestinian land+resources+body-organs.”

The meme itself showed an image of a purportedly Jewish man with the words “MOM LOOK! I IS CHOSEN! I CAN NOW KILL, RAPE, SMUGGLE ORGANS & AND STEAL THE LAND OF PALESTINIANS *YAY* ASHKE-NAZI”

The meme included another image of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un wearing a yarmulke (skull-cap) along with the words “101 JUDAISM WE TEACH IT”, “GOD CHOSE ME” and “I JUST CONVERTED ALL OF NORTH KOREA TO JUDAISM….DONALD TLUMP: NOW MY NUKES ARE LEGAL & I CAN ANNEX SOUTH KOREA & YOU NEED TO START PAYING ME $34 BILLION A YEAR IN WELFARE”  

With even the briefest of looks at the Hughes account, one can see many many more examples of similarly bigoted memes and attacks:

On August 29, 2017, Canary Mission first brought to Bazian’s attention that he had retweeted a repulsive anti-Semitic meme. Since then, Canary Mission brought it to his attention a four more times.

For three months he ignored the issue. After our latest attempt, Bazian issued a confusing and rambling apology, (Nov 21, 2017)

At first Bazian seems to genuinely apologize stating “I do sincerely apologize for re-sending it… [it] does not represent my views.”

Bazian goes on to proclaim that he retweeted “without giving it much thought,” arguing he was distracted because he was abroad in Spain and France. Of course this is already a tenuous excuse (especially since he follows Mr Hughes).

rsz_apologyish

If someone was possibly considering giving Bazian the benefit of the doubt, they would be hard pressed to explain away the rest of his ‘apology’. He proclaims “my issue is with Zionism, a settler colonial movement…not with Judaism or Jews, as diverse communities”  This is a repetition of Bazian’s well documented view that Jews have no right to self-determination, and can only exist as “diverse communities” in the diaspora.

Screen Shot 2017-11-22 at 3.15.35 PM

https://twitter.com/HatemBazian/status/890248299873271809

In his ‘apology’ for his anti-Semitism, Bazian is spreading his own definition of Judaism –  bereft of its religious and historical connection to Israel.

Given that almost half of world Jewry live in the State of Israel, his suggestion that Jews should merely live “as diverse communities” is itself a deeply anti-Semitic attack.

We draw your attention to the following videos which detail further examples of Bazian’s anti-Semitism and bigotry:
