National SJP Leaders Advocate Violence, Express Support for Palestinian Terrorism.
Activists who helped lead a national anti-Israel conference for students last year have publicly denigrated Jews, advocated violence against Zionists, and praised Palestinian terrorist groups, a new report has found.
Multiple organizers, speakers, and workshop leaders at the 2017 National Students for Justice in Palestine (NSJP) conference — which took place at the University of Houston (UH) this past October — have posted content featuring “anti-Semitism, incitement, threats of violence, support for terror and hatred of Israel across social media,” according to the anonymous watchdog group Canary Mission.
Among them was Samer Alhato, a Saint Xavier University anthropology student at the time of the conference, who announced on Facebook that he was picked to lead a “gender and sexuality” workshop, screenshots captured by Canary Mission show.
Alhato has repeatedly backed the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, tweeting on July 2014, “I support Hamas and I send then [sic] money every month.”
