SWC Urges all University and College Campus Heads to Stop Tomorrow’s pro-Hamas “Day of Resistance” Solidarity Events

October 11, 2023

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is calling on all university and college campuses heads to immediately put an end to events by Students for Justice in Palestine after the unprecedented massacres and attacks on innocents civilians by the Hamas terrorist group after their announced support and solidarity for Hamas’ mass murder of babies, entire families, rape and the kidnapping of individuals from 15 nations. 

The National Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) organization is hosting a “Day of Resistance” on Thursday, October 12th, to celebrate the impending “liberation” of Palestinians following a weekend of terrorist attacks against Israel.

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action at the SWC, issued the following statement:

“The anti-Semitic group, Students for Justice in Palestine, are celebrating and standing with mass murderers, be-headers of babies, rapists, and kidnappers while innocent Israelis - men women, children, and babies - are being held as hostages and countless others were massacred by Hamas. We demand that university and college leaders put an immediate end to this glorification of terror and murder.

The audacious embrace of Hamas’ crimes against humanity by student leaders and groups from Harvard and other elite American universities can only have happened in a climate of demonizing and delegitimizing the Jewish state on these campuses over the course of many years. It’s past due for the gatekeepers of American’s children's education to draw a line between ultimate evil and good. This has nothing to do with freedom of speech, it has to do with the future survival of us all.”
