While at Georgetown University, the pro-BDS Maher Bitar was an executive board member of Students for Justice in Palestine. The anti-Semitic hate group that has been terrorizing Jewish students on college campuses across the United States. In 2006, Bitar was one of the principal organizers of the Palestine Solidarity Movement Conference at Georgetown University. The Palestinian Solidarity Movement is another anti-Semitic hate group, that has ties to Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. A mere 15 years later Bitar will be the Senior Director for Intelligence on the NSC. Absolutely outrageous. Bitar’s responsibilities are outlined below.
“In his new position, the former anti-Israel activist will coordinate intelligence between the White House and the intelligence community, receiving material from intelligence agencies, informing the intelligence community of White House policy, and deciding who gets access to secret information. The office also contains some of the most classified information around.”
President Biden is stacking his cabinet with people who are hostile to Israel. Alan Dershowtiz said that Israel would be in “good hands” with Joe Biden as POTUS. WTF was Dershowitz smoking when he made that statement?

Biden Puts Anti-Israel BDS Activist in Charge of NSC Intel
By Front Page Magazine, January 26, 2021
“Why Is Georgetown Providing a Platform for This Dangerous Group?” an op-ed in the Washington Post had asked.
The group was the Palestine Solidarity Movement, a BDS anti-Israel hate group whose conferences had a history of antisemitism, supporting Hamas and the murder of Jews.
Maher Bitar, one of the executive board members of Students for Justice in Palestine, was one of the principal organizers of the 2006 conference which was being hosted by Georgetown University’s SJP hate group. A photo appears to show him dancing in a keffiyah in front of a banner reading, “Divest from Israel Apartheid”.
Despite protests from Jewish groups, the Georgetown BDS conference went ahead
Now, Biden has picked Maher Bitar as the Senior Director for Intelligence on the NSC.
In 2006, the American Jewish Committee was pleading with Georgetown to distance itself from the anti-Israel hate of PSM and SJP. Now the anti-Israel hate occupies the top of the foreign policy establishment and is set to define the foreign policy of the Biden administration.
In his new position, the former anti-Israel activist will coordinate intelligence between the White House and the intelligence community, receiving material from intelligence agencies, informing the intelligence community of White House policy, and deciding who gets access to secret information. The office also contains some of the most classified information around.
The job of Senior Director for Intelligence at the National Security Council is supposed to go to an intelligence professional. How did an anti-Israel activist go from helping host a conference for an organization whose speakers have supported Islamic terrorism to a top intelligence job?
At the PSM conference in Georgetown, Bitar had run a sessiondescribing how to best demonize Israel. Next year, he facilitated a Palestinian Student Society summit addressed by Joseph Massad who had called Israel a “Jewish supremacist state” and praised terrorism.
Massad had also argued that the idea that “any manifestation of hatred against Jews in any geographic location on Earth and in any historical period is ‘anti-Semitism’ smacks of a gross misunderstanding of the European history of anti-Semitism.”
A few years later, Bitar could be found presenting at a Sabeel conference featuring some of the worst bigots like Rebecca Vilkomerson of JVP ,who had invited a terrorist to address the BDS hate group, and Richard Falk, who had endorsed a book which wondered whether “Hitler might have been right after all”.
Maher Bitar went to work for UNRWA, interned at the misnamed and militantly anti-Israel
Foundation for Middle East Peace, and and studied at Oxford’s Refugee Studies Centre, writing papers on the so-called ‘Nakba’ and on ‘Palestinian’ activism. He appeared to describe Israel’s security barrier as a “segregation wall”
Israel’s “political existence as a state is the cause for Palestinian dispossession and statelessness,” Bitar wrote in one paper. “Israel’s rejection of their right to return remains the main obstacle to finding a durable solution.”
