Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is a violent anti-Semitic and pro-jihad hate group. They are also strong advocates for the BDS (Boycott the Jews) Movement. They physically intimidate, bully, and marginalize pro-Israel Jewish students. It is groups such as SJP that are violating the first amendment rights of Jewish students, who seek to publicly support Israel on campus.
None of this bothered the activist judge who ruled in favor of SJP. The judge shamelessly gave legitimacy to a campus terrorist organization, that goes against everything that all legitimate universities should stand for: peace, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of thought, the exchanging of ideas, and inclusion.
If something happens to a Jewish student at Fordham, this judge will have blood on her hands. Action must be taken to protect Jewish students on American university campuses.
SJP supports the Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment campaign targeting the Jewish state
By Jerusalem Post, August 7, 2019:
A New York judge issued a decision on Tuesday ordering Fordham University to recognize the pro-BDS student group Students for Justice in Palestine, sparking sharp criticism from academics with expertise in contemporary antisemitism.
In the 21-page legal ruling by judge Nancy M. Bannon, which was reviewed by The Jerusalem Post, the jurist largely argued that Fordham’s failure to recognize the SJP was a matter of academic freedom and violated the university’s rules about the formation of a student group.
Bannon wrote that “the consideration and discussion of differing views is actually part of Fordham’s mission, regardless of whether that consideration and discussion might discomfit some and polarize others.”
SJP supports the Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment campaign targeting the Jewish state. In May, Germany’s parliament classified BDS as antisemitic.
Dr. Asaf Romirowsky, Executive Director of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East (SPME), told the Post on Wednesday that, “Fordham University attempted to take a strong stance against BDS by blocking the creation of an SJP chapter – by arguing the their commitment to freedom of research and inquiry goes counter to SJP boycott ideology. SJP has over a hundred chapters around the country and is the No. 1 springboard for BDS activity on campus.”
