Imagine this scenario…

  Imagine this scenario. You’re watching a link someone’s posted to their Facebook or Twitter feed. On the screen in a huge mass of red, green and black flags, kheffiyehs of every color, and placards screaming “Apartheid!” and “Murderer!” It’s the usual scene of an anti- Israel rally, complete with chanting and an Imam whipping those assembled into an anti-Israel frenzy. The camera pans to a college- aged girl in the crowd, eyes ablaze, spittle coming from her lips, clearly enraged. She has just spotted a guy across the street in a kippa, silently holding a large Israeli flag with a proud and stoic expression on his face. She is blinded by fury at this point, and screams at him “Back to the ovens to finish the job! Allahu akhbar! Hitler was right!” It makes the blood boil to think of such a scene, let alone watch it unfold.

      Now imagine this same girl a few years later. She has finished her degree in Anthropology and is looking for a job in academia, or business, or anywhere, for that matter. She comes to her interview nicely dressed and groomed, and well-mannered, if a bit shy. Her resume reflects her impressive GPA, the time she spent teaching kids to read, and her summers visiting family in the Middle East. There is no mention of the three years she spent as president of SJP, on the board of her university’s MSA chapter, or spearheading the BDS movement on her campus. There is no link to her videos showing her spewing venom at pro-Israel students. There are no pictures of her wearing Islamic Jihad regalia or speaking at a conference entitled “Zionism is Racism.” There is no indication that she spent the better part of her college career dedicating her extracurricular hours to organizations aided, abetted and funded by internationally-regarded terrorist organizations. 

      In this day and age of the internet, researching potential employees is easy. One can google a name or search someone on Facebook and have access to a prospective employees private life. But all too often, when there are fifty prospective employees, so many resumes to wade through, and candidates that are seemingly highly qualified, intensive background research might fall by the wayside. And this is a problem. Without missions like ours, there is no accountability. There is no recourse for spending endless hours relentlessly calling for the destruction of Israel, organizing die-ins and fake checkpoints, publicly sympathizing with terrorists and posting violent and racist content to one’s wall or feed. It is all too easy to graduate from an institution and “clean house” on anything one might deem “objectionable to a possible employer.” And then these individual wipe their own slates clean. All that’s left is their time on student council, their semester as a Teaching Assistant. Maybe they’ll leave their time as a member of SJP on their Timelines, the way one would their fraternities or their involvement with the campus Hillel.

        But SJP is not Hillel, and the BDS movement is not a fraternity. They may hold bake sales and have dance parties, but they also host terrorists and organize boycotts and rallies. They leave mock eviction notices and threaten opponents. They do this with the blessing of their like-minded professors and the tremendous financial support of people they do not even know, people who are using them to make American universities unwelcoming and unsafe for Israel-supporters and Jewish students.

       Our job is to hold these people accountable. We need to ensure that the hate they espoused so freely doesn’t get swept under the rug. To show them that there are consequences to violent and hateful actions.

Hi to Canary Mission Staff.
The following tract is one of two I handed out in Whangarei, New Zealand while Op. ‘Protective Edge’ was in progress. Both tracts (A4s, both sides) have caused considerable embarassment to the ill-informed, and maligners of Israel/Jews. I can be friendly with almost anyone, regardless of their religion, but I am foremost a Christian who defends Israel (as a Jewish State). Please read the League of Nations’ ‘Mandate For Palestine’ 24 July.1922, when all of the 51 nations (inc.Persia) voted for a "Homeland for the Jews" within the Palestinian Mandate (minus Trans-Jordan). The ‘Mandate For Palestine’ was still a legal document when transferred to the UN in 1946.
‘Arab and British scources on the Arab desertion of Palestine in 1948’
Sources confirming that Arab leaders told Arabs to flee and reports related to the departure of the Arab refugees:
1. “The first group of our fifth column consist of those who abandon their homes… At the first sign of trouble they take to
their heels to escape sharing the burden of struggle” — Ash-Sha’ab, Jaffa, January 30, 1948.
2. “(The fleeing villagers)…are bringing down disgrace on us all… by abandoning their villages” — As- Sarih, Jaffa,
March 30, 1948.
3. “Every effort is being made by the Jews to persuade the Arab populace to stay and carry on with their normal lives, to
get their shops and businesses open and to be assured that their lives and interests will be safe.” — Haifa District HQ of the
British Police, April 26, 1948, (quoted in Battleground by Samuel Katz).
4. “The mass evacuation, prompted partly by fear, partly by order of Arab leaders, left the Arab quarter of Haifa a ghost
city…. By withdrawing Arab workers their leaders hoped to paralyze Haifa.” — Time Magazine, May 3, 1948, page 25.
5. “The Arab streets (of Palestine) are curiously deserted (because)…following the poor example of the moneyed class,
there has been an exodus from Jerusalem, but not to the same extent as from Jaffa and Haifa”. — London Times, May 5,
1948.
6. “The Arab civilians panicked and fled ignominiously. Villages were frequently abandoned before they were threatened
by the progress of war.” — General John Glubb “Pasha,” — The London Daily Mail, August 12, 1948.
7. “The fact that there are these refugees is the direct consequence of the act of the Arab states in opposing partition
and the Jewish state. The Arab states agreed upon this policy unanimously and they must share in the solution of the problem.”
— Emile Ghoury, secretary of the Palestinian Arab Higher Committee, in an interview with the Beirut Telegraph September 6,
1948. — (same appeared in The London Telegraph, August 1948).
8. “The most potent factor [in the flight of Palestinians] was the announcements made over the air by the Arab-
Palestinian Higher Executive, urging all Haifa Arabs to quit… It was clearly intimated that Arabs who remained in Haifa and
accepted Jewish protection would be regarded as renegades.” — London Economist October 2, 1948.
9. “It must not be forgotten that the Arab Higher Committee encouraged the refugees’ flight from their homes in Jaffa,
Haifa, and Jerusalem”. — Near East Arabic Broadcasting Station, Cyprus, April 3, 1949.
10. “The Arabs of Haifa fled in spite of the fact that the Jewish authorities guaranteed their safety and rights as citizens of
Israel.” — Monsignor George Hakim, Greek Catholic Bishop of Galilee, New York Herald Tribune, June 30, 1949.
11. “The military and civil (Israeli) authorities expressed their profound regret at this grave decision (taken by the Arab
military delegates of Haifa and the Acting Chair of the Palestine Arab Higher Committee to evacuate Haifa despite the Israeli
offer of a truce). The Jewish mayor of Haifa made a passionate appeal to the delegation (of Arab military leaders) to reconsider
its decision.” — Memorandum of the Arab National Committee of Haifa, 1950, to the governments of the Arab League, quoted
in J. B. Schechtman, The Refugees in the World, NY 1963, pp. 192f.
12. Sir John Troutbeck, British Middle East Office in Cairo, noted in cables to superiors (1948-49) that the refugees (in
Gaza) have no bitterness against Jews, but harbor intense hatred toward Egyptians: “They say ‘we know who our enemies are
(referring to the Egyptians)’, declaring that their Arab brethren persuaded them unnecessarily to leave their homes…I even
heard it said that many of the refugees would give a welcome to the Israelis if they were to come in and take the district over.”
13. “The Arab states which had encouraged the Palestine Arabs to leave their homes temporarily in order to be out of the
way of the Arab invasion armies, have failed to keep their promise to help these refugees.” — The Jordanian daily newspaper
Falastin, February 19, 1949.
14. “The Secretary General of the Arab League, Azzam Pasha, assured the Arab peoples that the occupation of
Palestine and of Tel Aviv would be as simple as a military promenade…Brotherly advice was given to the Arabs of Palestine to
leave their land, homes, and property to stay temporarily In neighboring fraternal states, lest the guns of invading Arab armies
mow them down.” –Al Hoda, a New York-based Lebanese daily, June 8, 1951.
15. “Who brought the Palestinians to Lebanon as refugees, suffering now from the malign attitude of newspapers and
communal leaders, who have neither honor nor conscience? Who brought them over in dire straits and penniless, after they
lost their honor? The Arab states, and Lebanon amongst them, did it.” — The Beirut Muslim weekly Kul-Shay, August 19, 1951.
16. “We will smash the country with our guns and obliterate every place the Jews seek shelter in. The Arabs should
conduct their wives and children to safe areas until the fighting has died down.” — Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Said, quoted in Sir
An-Nakbah (“The Secret Behind the Disaster”) by Nimr el-Hawari, Nazareth, 1952.
17. “The Arab Exodus …was not caused by the actual battle, but by the exaggerated description spread by the Arab
leaders to incite them to fight the Jews. …For the flight and fall of the other villages it is our leaders who are responsible
because of their dissemination of rumors exaggerating Jewish crimes and describing them as atrocities in order to inflame the
Arabs … By spreading rumors of Jewish atrocities, killings of women and children etc., they instilled fear and terror in the
hearts of the Arabs in Palestine, until they fled leaving their homes and properties to the enemy.” — The Jordanian daily
newspaper Al Urdun, April 9, 1953.
18. “The Arab governments told us: Get out so that we can get in. So we got out, but they did not get in.” — A refugee
quoted in Al Difaa
19. “The wholesale exodus was due partly to the belief of the Arabs, encouraged by the boasting of an unrealistic press
and the irresponsible utterances of some of the Arab leaders that it could be only a matter of some weeks before the Jews
were defeated by the armies of the Arab states, and the Palestinian Arabs enabled to re-enter and re-take possession of their
country”. — Edward Atiyah (Secretary of the Arab League, London, The Arabs, 1955, p. 183).
20. “As early as the first months of 1948, the Arab League issued orders exhorting the people to seek a temporary refuge
in neighboring countries, later to return to their abodes … and obtain their share of abandoned Jewish property.” — Bulletin of
The Research Group for European Migration Problems 1957.
21. “Israelis argue that the Arab states encouraged the Palestinians to flee. And, in fact, Arabs still living in Israel recall
being urged to evacuate Haifa by Arab military commanders who wanted to bomb the city.” — Newsweek, January 20, 1963.
22. “The 15th May, 1948, arrived … On that day the mufti of Jerusalem appealed to the Arabs of Palestine to leave the
country, because the Arab armies were about to enter and fight in their stead.” — The Cairo daily Akhbar el Yom, October 12,
1963.
23. In listing the reasons for the Arab failure in 1948, Khaled a lAzm (Syrian Prime Minister) notes that “… the fifth factor
was the call by the Arab governments to the inhabitants of Palestine to evacuate it (Palestine) and leave for the bordering Arab
countries. Since 1948, it is we who have demanded the return of the refugees, while it is we who made them leave. We
brought disaster upon a million Arab refugees by inviting them and bringing pressure on them to leave. We have accustomed
them to begging…we have participated in lowering their morale and social level…Then we exploited them in executing crimes
of murder, arson and throwing stones upon men, women and children…all this in the service of political purposes…” — Khaled
el Azm, Syrian prime minister after the 1948 War, in his 1972 memoirs, published in 1973.
24. “The Arab states succeeded in scattering the Palestinian people and in destroying their unity. They did not recognize
them as a unified people until the states of the world did so, and this is regrettable.” — Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas), from the
official journal of the PLO, Falastin el-Thawra (“What We Have Learned and What We Should Do”), Beirut, March 1976.
25. “Since 1948, the Arab leaders have approached the Palestinian problem in an irresponsible manner. They have used
the Palestinian people for political purposes; this is ridiculous, I might even say criminal…” — King Hussein, Hashemite kingdom
of Jordan, 1996.
26. “Abu Mazen charges that the Arab States are the cause of the Palestinian Refugee Problem” (Wall Street Journal;
June 5, 2003):
Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) wrote an article in March 1976 in Falastin al-Thawra, the official journal of the PLO in Beirut:
“The Arab armies entered Palestine to protect the Palestinians from the Zionist tyranny, but instead they abandoned them, forced
them to emigrate and to leave their homeland, imposed upon them a political and ideological blockade and threw them into prisons
similar to the ghettos in which the Jews used to live in Eastern Europe.” As Abu Mazen alluded, it was in large part due to threats
and fearmongering from Arab leaders that some 700,000 Arabs fled Israel in 1948 when the new state was invaded by Arab armies.
Ever since, the growing refugee population, now around 4 million by UN estimates, has been corralled into squalid camps
scattered across the Middle East – in Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Gaza, and the West Bank.
In 1950, the UN set up the United Nations Relief and Works Agency as a temporary relief effort for Palestinian refugees.
Former UNRWA director Ralph Galloway stated eight years later that, “the Arab states do not want to solve the refugee problem.
They want to keep it as an open sore, as a weapon against Israel. Arab leaders do not give a damn whether Arab refugees live or
die.
The only thing that has changed since [1949] is the number of Palestinians cooped up in these prison camps.”

Dutch newspaper ‘Trouw’

    Thank you, Bill Baxter. As a veteran of years of this kind of battle I confess it is wearying. The Satanic adversary does not grow weary and is not actually interested in reasoned and factual debate. But facts do matter.

Bill Baxter

You know well that 98% of the world’s muslims hatred towards Jews & Israel is embedded in their genetic DNA (Quran), they don’t even know why. Incase you over looked: they hate you & Christians just as passionately. If you’re going to side with the dark side (Islam) do so, but you need to get a life.
If you’re looking for a "do good" mission, you should travel to Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Algeria, Libya, Sudan, Afghanistan, etc. and enlighten them (either Sunnis, Shiites) as to why they shouldn’t slaughtering each other, and maybe you could teach them on how to sing in perfect harmony.
If any one could do this it’s you the genius in your own mind.

Pick up a hobby like very deep and lengthy Scuba diving.

I am trying to be fair minded in making any remark, but I find the content of this webpage and the vision of this organization to be profoundly disturbing. It is within the rights of students and professionals alike to participate in what they view as a struggle against an injustice in the world. My contention is that critical views of Israel are not inherently racist. For too long, criticism of the war crimes and cruelty of the state of Israel have been dismissed out of hand as racist. The fundamental fact is that Zionism envisions a demographic prerequisite on the land that Israel occupies. 70 years ago, there was not a Jewish majority on that land, and in order to realize this vision, the people living on the land had to be removed. That is what happened, and what continues today. The assumption that this organization makes is that supporting Palestine and opposing Israel is something to be ashamed of. The comments made below unfortunately echo these racist sentiments. The first sentence of "Noah Noah’s" comment is on its face prejudice. He contends that Muslim hatred of Israel is without any reason, and "embedded in their DNA", I can’t think of a more uninformed and racist way of phrasing that. Instead of trying to punish people for their political views, let us have an honest discussion about the merits of those views.

    Unfortunately for your point of view, the Muslims have maintained their hatred and contempt of Jews for several centuries, and specifically before any of the alleged actions of Jews, Israelis and Zionists. The truth is not in the middle The fact is that Arabs and Muslims have zero tolerance for Jews while Jews have displayed tolerance to them far exceeding their merit of tolerance.

    It is typical of the lazy-thinking Judeophobe to excuse hatred of Jews to actions of provocations of Jews. It sounds reasonable out of any real context but we have plenty of context to refer to.

    I don’t give people like you the benefit of any doubts, but even if you are sincere you would still be wrong and noah boah right. Israel is a global reservation for the Jewish nation and a democracy within that. It is a prerequisite that Israel be a Jewish country not susceptible to political manipulation and propaganda and activism by our enemies.

    john doe,

    Are you really not aware that Jews have been persecuted by Muslims for thousands of years living as dhimmis in Arab countries?

    Yes, let’s have an honest discussion. You say that in order to realize the Zionist vision, the people living on the land had to be removed. Not really. If Arabs had not waged a war of genocide against Jews in 1948, Palestinians never would have left. Let’s see what the Arab leaders have to say.

    Former prime minister of Syria, Khalid al-Azm placed the blame of the refugee situation squarely on the Arabs:
    "Since 1948 it is we who demanded the return of the refugees…while it is we who made them leave. We brought disaster upon…Arab refugees, by inviting them and bringing pressure to bear upon them to leave.. We have rendered them dispossessed..We have accustomed them to begging..We have participated in lowering their moral and social level…Then we exploited them in executing crimes of murder, arson, and throwing bombs upon…men women and children…all this in the service of political purposes."

    In 1980, the Arab National Committee of Haifa wrote a memorandum to the Arab states,
    "The removal of the Arab inhabitants was voluntary and carried out at our request. The Arab delegation proudly asked for the evacuation of the Arabs and their removal to the neighboring Arab countries….We are very glad to state that the Arabs guarded their honor and traditions with pride and greatness."

    And even Mahmoud Abbas has accused the Arab armies of abandoning the Palestinians after they "forced them to emigrate and to leave their homeland and threw them into prisons similar to the ghettos in which the Jews used to live".

    The injustice against Palestinians have been perpetrated by their own leaders and sadly continues to this day.

    I like going to the source rather than relying on BDS propaganda.

The pro-Palestinian activists are also trying to show people that there are consequences to violent and hateful actions — in their case, specifically, the violent and hateful actions of ultra-nationalist Israelis — soldiers, border police, settlers, and others. So you are really pursuing the same goal. Why don’t you work together?

This website is disgusting, you have no idea how much of a slander this is and how you might be ruining someones life. You have no facts on whether some of these individuals have committed "hateful actions," all you have have are misinterpreted posts that can potentially ruin someones life. I hope employers see this and think its pathetic, all these individuals should be given the right to represent themselves, not for someone behind a screen to do it for them.

    Are you posting the same exact comment on every blog post? My reply –

    Why so upset? Why is it slander, and how will it ruin their lives? They are not children and they have chosen their actions and are obviously proud of them. If you agree then they can put it on their resumes and get great jobs. Perhaps you and they secretly know that what they are doing is wrong.

jane smith or whatever your real name is….You are sounding like a disgusting psycho,are you posting from some loony bin in Gaza.

Though I am fairly active in the web seeking to verbally combat the screed’s of BDS and its allies, I have not run across your work until now. I want to congratulate you on this. A forceful attack on the anti-semitic cadres and seeking to reach out to their potential employers is wonderful and much needed. Congratulations. If there is any thing I can do to help, please let me know.
