Continuing its campaign to expose the campus organization Students for Justice in Palestine as neo-Nazis, the David Horowitz Freedom Center placed posters this week on the campuses of the University of Texas-San Antonio and the University of Texas-Arlington. The posters document comments that student activists affiliated with SJP have made on social media praising Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and calling for the extermination of the Jews. The posters also expose Berkeley Professor Hatem Bazian, a co-founder of SJP, as an anti-Semite and supporter of the anti-Israel terror group Hamas.
Statements shared by SJP activists on social media, which are documented on the posters include:
“How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough”
“Wow White Jews are so entitled LMFAOOO Please die.”
“Had to write about a leader for DCL class. Wrote about Hitler. Cuz he’s a boss.”
Students for Justice in Palestine was co-founded in 2001 by Hamas-supporting Berkeley professor Hatem Bazian who has openly called for an intifada, or violent uprising, in America, and has shared anti-Semitic memes on social media. One of the posters placed on the campuses exposes Bazian’s recent anti-Semitic tweet which featured a caricature of an Orthodox Jew with the caption “MOM LOOK! I IS CHOSEN! I CAN NOW KILL, RAPE, SMUGGLE ORGANS & AND STEAL THE LAND OF PALESTINIANS *YAY* ASHKE-NAZI.”
SJP employs funds from the terrorist party Hamas—funneled to American campuses through an intermediary group, American Muslims for Palestine, chaired by Professor Bazian—in order to launch an all-out political assault on the Jewish state and to create a climate of hatred towards Jews and students who support Israel on campus.
As a result of this support and funding from Hamas, SJP has become the principal collegiate organization in the Hamas terror network and the campus propaganda war against Israel. It heavily promotes the Hamas-endorsed and funded Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel, a form of economic terrorism which seeks to weaken, delegitimize, and ultimately destroy the Jewish state.
There has been no condemnation of Hamas by Students for Justice in Palestine or the Muslim Students Association because both are creations of the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization that translated Mein Kampf into Arabic in the Thirties and whose leader, Hassan al-Banna, was an open admirer of Hitler and launched the Islamic-Palestinian movement to “push the Jews into the sea”—a sentiment that is echoed in SJP’s perpetual protest chant to liberate Palestine “From the River to the Sea”—a genocidal call to destroy the entirety of the Jewish state which lies between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.
In conjunction with the posters, the Freedom Center will soon be releasing a groundbreaking pamphlet titled “SJP: Neo-Nazis on Campus,” which reveals how Hamas has funded a generation of college activists who falsely portray the Jews as “colonial-settler” occupiers of a fictional state called “Palestine” and maliciously describe Israel—the only liberal democracy in the Middle East—as an “apartheid state,” leading to an outpouring of neo-Nazi hate and open calls for another Holocaust.
The pamphlet contains profiles of SJP activists who have used social media to advocate for violence against the Jews, to spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, and to exalt Nazi leader Hitler’s “final solution.” Among these profiles are several students at UTSA and UTA, the schools that were postered this week. These sections of the pamphlet are reproduced below.
The pamphlet and posters are part of a larger Freedom Center campaign titled Stop University Support for Terrorists. Images of the posters that appeared at UTA ,UTSA, and other campuses may be viewed here.
University of Texas-San Antonio: Nour Rafati
A member of both Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at the University of Texas-San Antonio, graduate student Nour Rafati utilized social media to repeatedly joke about the Holocaust and Hitler, clearly both subjects of great humor for her, and to broadcast her hatred for Jews and supporters of Israel.
Her many tweets include:
‘I’m so glad I survived the Holocaust so that I could be here with you all today.”
“I <3 my Holocaust pic.”
“We have a really mean cat in our backyard that beats up the others and my mom calls him “el ya7oodi [the jew]” lol.”
“just deleted the jew lover and anyone that has anything to do with her.”
“RT @Christeen_K: Sometimes I just wanna slap a thousand Jews.”
“@Christeen_K have a safe trip habibtii! slap a jew for me ;)”
“Favorite this if you support Israel…so I can block you.”
“My blood boils every time someone says “Israel.” Can’t help it.”
“ew just passed by the Christians United for Israel table.”
“ew just listened to a Zionist talk out of his a** for 6 minutes #Idkwhy.”
Rafati also tweeted a meme featuring Hitler, commenting, “Hitler memes are the funniest.”
University of Texas-Arlington: Tareq Abdallah, Nancy Salem, and classmates
A student at the University of Texas-Arlington, Tareq Abdallah’s twitter feed is full of vile anti-Semitic tropes, threats of violence towards Jews and Zionists and adulation for Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Abdullah also maintains close connections with other UT-Arlington students, including members of SJP and MSA on campus, who express similar neo-Nazi views.
Abdallah’s tweets glorifying Hitler include:
“Hitler you my mf nigga ”
“Hitler is considered palestinian in my books.”
“Where tf is Hitler at.”
Hitler is the man of the match, he raised warriors .”
“If you could witness any historical moment, which one would it be? — Holocaust.”
Not content to merely praise those who slaughtered Jews, Abdallah has made numerous threats to commit violence and murder against Jews on his Twitter feed. He has also explicitly expressed his support for the anti-Israel terrorist group Hamas. These tweets include:
“I swear if I Jew gets within 5 feet from me at the protest and says a word, straight murder.”
“Gimme an AK and drop me off in gaza, I promise I’ll go on a killing spree, f**k Jews.”
“I wish some Jew would talk s**t about Palestine….then I’d have a reason to whoop his ass.”
“No fear at all #hamaswillneverdie.”
“Hamas is the true meaning of fighters who stand strong #FreePalestine.”
“Hamas all day my nigga adham.”
His tweets echoing anti-Semitic tropes including the idea that Jews are stingy include:
“@farahqadorable you just said 50k smh I smell a Jew.”
On August 13, 2014, Abdallah tweeted: “@islamisisevilny @_Kurdyy_ y’all are stingy af and Jew supporters, and y’all call yallselfs Muslims supporting Israel killing Palestinians.”
“Whoever said all Jews arnt bad people lied.”
“Cheap people <<< damn Jew.”
“#ToMyFutureSon dont be cheap its a sign ur turning into a jew.”
While a student at the University of Texas-Arlington, Nancy Salem was an activist with the Hamas front group Students for Justice in Palestine. She has used her Twitter account to repeatedly praise Hitler, share jokes about the Holocaust and killing Jews, and spread virulent anti-Semitic tropes such as insinuating that Jews are money-grubbing and selfish. She also participated in the genocidal and Hamas-funded Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and frequently interacted with other anti-Semites and neo-Nazi activists on social media.
When one of Salem’s tweets advocating the slaughter of Jews went viral she was fired from her job of two years at an early childhood center. That tweet read: “Have a safe trip Lulu. I love you baby girl! See you in 3 weeks! Kiss the Palestine ground for me and kill some jews! <3 #IMissYouAlready.”
Other tweets of Salem’s include:
“‘@DictatorHitler: How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough’ @PrincessLulllu @thearabgirl HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHA.”
“‘@DictatorHitler: Gassed a Jew, I’m sweating #Heil’ OMG.”
“‘How was the copper wire invented? They threw a penny between two Jews.’ LOLACHAUST.”
“‘@DictatorHitler: If Moday [Monday] was a person he’d be Jewish’ @thearabgirl @wowreallywow ”
Salem also shared her messages demonizing Israel and also America as Israel’s defender.
Her tweets include:
“I can’t wait for the day America stops being Israel’s little lap dog and wakes up. #BigDreams #Inshallah.”
“Hamas is actually defending our people unlike the Israeli army who will kill anyone.”
She also tweeted images of signs she made for an anti-Israel protest which read,
“Israel Is Real Terrorism,” and “Dear USA, your 9/11 is our 24/7.” A third sign accused Israel of being an apartheid state.
Abdallah’s and Salem’s neo-Nazi sentiments are not uncommon among their classmates at UT-Arlington, many of whom have stated similar thoughts on their social media accounts.
One such classmate is Heba Asi, an activist with SJP and MSA at UT-Arlington and a supporter of the Hamas-funded BDS movement against Israel. Asi is also related to Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist Mohammed Assi, her cousin, who participated in the bombing of a Tel Aviv bus that wounded 28 civilians and was later honored by Hamas and PIJ after being killed by Israeli special forces.
Asi has made anti-Semitic and pro-Hamas comments on twitter including:
“I’m all for the destruction of the Zionist state Israel and 100% pro hamas.”
“Any one who isn’t pro hamas has either never been to Palestine, uneducated, or a Zionist.”
“I hope anyone who is for the zionist acts in palestine, burn in hell!”
“@Dino94 hahaha calling a palestinian a Jew is like calling a black person the N word!”
“I honestly dont feel that sypathetic about the holocaust..#SorryNotSorry.”
Dannah Mahmoud, an activist with SJP and MSA at UT-Arlington, also repeatedly expressed support for Hamas and hatred and disgust for the Jews on social media, including tweeting that her favorite “Arabic curse” is “Allah yikhrab beit il yahood [May Allah destroy the homes of the Jews].”
Other tweets from Mahmoud include:
“Falasteen ibladna wil yahood ichlabna [Palestine is our land and the Jews are our dogs].”
“Reading about palestine really depresses the f**kin hell out of me. Allah yil3an il yahood [May Allah curse the Jews].”
“@3bdElMassi7318 @CNN 100% it doesn’t. But you’ll never hear that from the yahood [Jews] who control the media.”
“Every thing Israel claims as its own is stolen from Arabs. Land, culture, food etc. thats the problem when youre scum with nothing of ur own.”
“‘@BeardoTweets: Blaming Hamas for firing rockets is like blaming a woman for punching her rapist. #FreeGaza #GazaUnderAttack’ accurate af.”
“Israel has been terrorizing Palestinians way before Hamas was even there now they just have a scapegoat.”
Other activists with SJP at UT-Arlington shared similar thoughts, denying or joking about the existence of the Holocaust. These include Ismail Said Aboukar, also a member of MSA, who tweeted “#LiesToldInSchool the holocaust” and Mariam Ghanem who tweeted “Lol let’s stuff some Jews in the oven.”
