Letter to the Editor: Posters linking SJP, MSA to terrorist groups are not Islamophobic

The Bruin article about our poster campaign to expose the support provided to Hamas terrorists by Students for Justice in Palestine and the Muslim Student Association at UCLA left some misleading impressions, which I would like to correct. Specifically, an SJP spokesperson was quoted accusing us of “Islamophobia.” In fact, Islam isn’t mentioned in the posters.
SJP and MSA are linked not because their members are all Muslims, since they obviously are not. Moreover, most Muslims do not support Hamas and its terrorist war against the West. So the charge of Islamophobia against anyone who opposes Islamic terrorism is actually a slander against Muslims. SJP and MSA are linked because both organizations were created by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the spawner of al-Qaida and the creator of Hamas, and because their campus political campaigns adhere chapter and verse to the genocidal propaganda campaigns of Hamas.
For example, Israel is not “occupied Palestine” as Hamas and leaders of both campus groups claim. Israel was created on land that belonged to the Turks, who are not Arabs, and who occupied the land for 400 years prior to the creation of the Jewish state. Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Jordan were all created out of the same Turkish land. Jordan is 70 percent Palestinian but is ruled by its Hashemite minority. Yet there are no protests over Jordan’s occupation of Palestinian land. That is because the Hamas-SJP-MSA campaign against Israel is part of a jihadist campaign to ethnically cleanse Jews and Christians from the Middle East.
Shame on the students who spread the genocidal lies of Hamas on the UCLA campus. Shame on them for supporting the 70-plus-year Arab aggression against the Jewish state and the 70-plus-year oppression of Palestinian Arabs by Fatah and Hamas.
