Last year Canary Mission released a damning exposé on anti-Israel activists at the University of Maryland (UMD).
Now the school has caught our attention again. Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) activists innovated a devious new strategy to bolster support for BDS on campus.
In February 2017 SJP activists Sarah Eshera and Saarah Javed created the UMD Muslim Political Alliance (MPA). Ostentibly a Muslim political and cultural interest group, from the outset MPA functioned hand-in-glove with SJP.
In the short time since it’s creation, MPA has co-sponsored a host of events together with SJP, including:
- a “Boycott Rally” timed to coincide with “Israel Fest”
- a divestment resolution announcement that ultimately never materialized
- a BDS event featuring radical American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) speakers Taher Herzallah and Kareem El Hosseiny
SJP thought they could hide – they thought they could get away with it, but we caught them! MPA was founded by SJP activists and shares multiple members with SJP. Their cynical attempt to bolster BDS on campus by creating a new “political” organization is now exposed!
