Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapters across North America are notorious for harboring anti-Semites who mock the Holocaust, show support for Hitler and wish death on Jews.
SJP Chapter Holocaust Scandals
Multiple SJP chapters have been complicit in their own abuses of the Holocaust. This includes disrupting Holocaust memorial days, comparing Jews to Nazis on social media and hosting radical speakers who make light of the national Jewish tragedy.
Radical Founder Repeatedly Abuses the Holocaust
The organization’s founder, UC Berkeley professor Hatem Bazian, has himself repeatedly abused the memory of the Holocaust in order to promote his radical anti-Israel agenda.
The hate that caused one of the worst national tragedies in living memory, is still active among us on North American campuses. Speak out against SJP’s anti-Semitism and stop the spread of hatred.
What is SJP?
Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is the primary student organization engaging in anti-Israel activity on North American campuses.
SJP was co-founded in 2001 at the University of California at Berkeley (UC Berkeley) by Professors Hatem Bazian and Snehal Shingavi.
Bazian served as president of the General Union of Palestinian Students (GUPS) while studying at San Francisco State University (SFSU) and headed the Muslim Students Association (MSA) while earning his M.A. at UC Berkeley. In 2004, while the second intifada was already winding down in Israel, he called for an intifada in the United States.
Shingavi, an activist tied to the International Socialist Organization (ISO), has been criticized for using his literature course as a vehicle for promoting anti-Israel propaganda.
SJP has grown to become the primary student movement advancing the Palestinian national agenda on North American campuses and is the primary force behind Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) campaigns at most schools.
SJP describes itself on its website as being against racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, classism, bigotry and anti-Semitism. The group’s focus, however, is almost entirely on its anti-Israel campaigns, including BDS resolutions, Israel-Apartheid initiatives, drives comparing Israel to Nazi Germany, mock checkpoints, “die-ins” and public rallies.
SJP is believed by many to be an outgrowth of the General Union of Palestinian Students (GUPS), originally founded in Egypt in the 1950s and established at San Francisco State University (SFSU) in 1973.
