PJTN EXTOLS BANNING OF SJP HATE-GROUP ON FORDHAM UNIVERSITY CAMPUS, CALLS ON OTHER CAMPUSES TO FOLLOW SUIT
With the rise of anti-Semitic incidents on U.S. campuses, a Jesuit Catholic University decides to take a bold stand against it.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Tennessee, USA (January 26, 2017) Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN) commends the Fordham University leadership for banning the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) hate-group from their campus and calls on other universities to follow suit.
The announcement comes just days after New York based Jesuit Catholic school denied approval of SJP’s application to register as an official university club. PJTN has spent the last two years exposing the divisive and dangerous nature of SJP and its affiliates that have been directly linked to violent attacks against pro-Israel Jews and Christians on college and university campus throughout the U.S.
“We salute the brave actions of President, Fr. Joseph McShane and the Board of Trustees at Fordham University for your leadership and your commitment to continuing in the Catholic tradition of honoring the spirit of the Nostra Aetate Declaration of the II Vatican Council. SJP is a hate-group that is directly responsible for incitement and violence targeting Jews and Christians and its tactics are in direct violation with Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act as it pertains to Jewish students on campus. No group that fosters global genocidal anti-Semitism should be welcome anywhere. We call upon all universities to follow Fordham’s leadership example for the sake of protecting its students and ensuring that American university campuses become safe places of learning for all”, stated Laurie Cardoza-Moore, President of PJTN.
Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN), a 501c3 non-profit organization, was established to educate Christians about their Biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and Israel, utilizing powerful film and video presentations, a variety of grassroots rallies, events and speaking engagements to facilitate dialogue between the Christian and Jewish communities in support of the State of Israel and against global genocidal anti-Semitism. In recent months the organization has led the struggle against BDS in America with a wave of state resolutions and the upcoming 2017 release of a new documentary film “BOYCOTT THIS!” that will expose the truth behind the BDS movement.
