SJP activists praise Hitler, call for a second Holocaust
The David Horowitz Freedom Center placed posters on the campuses of the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) and the University of Southern California (USC) today that reveal that student activists across the nation affiliated with Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) have made comments 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, whose profile also appears in the pamphlet. Bazian 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.
The posters are part of a larger Freedom Center campaign titled Stop University Support for Terrorists. Images of the posters that appeared at UCLA and USC may be viewed at www.stopuniversitysupportforterrorists.org. Posters have also been placed on other campuses including UC-Berkeley and San Francisco State University.
The David Horowitz Freedom Center, founded in 1988, is a not-for-profit organization located in Sherman Oaks, California. The Center’s mission is to defend free societies like America and Israel, which are under attack by totalitarians both religious and secular, domestic and foreign.
