A couple of days ago, posters appeared at a few university campuses including UCLA:


(It was later revealed that the David Horowitz Freedom Center was behind them.)

SJP has thrown its support behind terrorists like Rasmea Odeh. It has intimidated Jews and Zionists on campuses throughout North America.  Also, as Frontpage notes:
UCLA SJP has hosted Amir Abdel Malik who once brandished a check made out to Hamas, Palestine and called for an anti-Semitic backlash.

It hosted Hatem Bazian, SJP’s co-founder, who raised money for Hamas and trafficked in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. It hosted Alison Weir who claimed that medieval Jews drank blood. It hosted Taher Herzallah who wrote that “Hamas’ rockets are an oppressed people’s audible cry for help.”

And that was just one year.
The epithet "#JewHaters" does not seem to be far off the mark, since they support antisemites.

But look at how UCLA's SJP reacted:
These posters are a clear example of hate speech directed against Students for Justice in Palestine, as well as supporters of Palestinian freedom and equality. They rely on Islamophobic and anti-Arab tropes to paint Palestinians as terrorists and to misrepresent Students for Justice in Palestine as anti-Semitic. It hardly bears repeating that SJP at UCLA is an organization that prides itself on its opposition to all forms of racism and bigotry, and which is open to and promotes the membership of students from all walks of life. As organizers, we are concerned that these acts are an attempt to delegitimize and slander the work that we have done to pass divestment on our campus. Furthermore, defacing school property and intimidating a specific group of students creates a deeply harmful environment that prevents student learning and community-building. Coupled with the recent uprise in Islamophobia on a national scale, we are concerned for the safety of our fellow students and student organizers.
The people who place fake "eviction notices" on dorms with large Jewish populations are complaining that they are being intimidated! The people who stage checkpoints and die-ins on campus are worried about the "harmful environment" that comes about from putting up posters that point out who they support!

Most of all, they are saying that calling out their affinity with Jew-haters is hate speech!

What a joke.
