Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV), representing over 2,500 traditional, Orthodox rabbis in American public policy, today alerted the public, especially university administrators, that the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) planned “Day of Resistance” tomorrow poses an “obvious threat to Jewish students.” The SJP event comes after the organization celebrated the massacre of 1,200 Israeli citizens, residents, and visitors by the Hamas terror organization last weekend, calling the slaughter of innocent civilians “a historic win for the Palestinian resistance.”
“We’ve been warning for years that SJP was an antisemitic hate group, pointing to the clear correlation between its chapters and hateful incidents on campus, but University administrators dismissed our concerns,” said CJV Vice President Rabbi Dov Fischer. “Now the gloves are off: SJP categorizes murder, rape, and decapitation of babies as merely ‘resistance,’ and then calls for a ‘Day of Resistance’ on campus. No fool could be blind to the obvious threat to Jewish students.”
SJP consistently celebrates terrorists who murder Jews in the Holy Land. Examples include Dalal Mughrabi, who led the Coastal Road Massacre terror attack that murdered 38 bus passengers, including 13 children; George Habash, leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, responsible for airline hijackings that killed at least 20 American citizens; and Rasmeah Odeh, who murdered two Hebrew University students in 1970.

“A group of racist cheerleaders for terror is now calling for ‘resistance’ on campus, after clearly identifying the vicious slaughter of innocent Jews as the ‘resistance’ of which it speaks,” added CJV Rabbinic Circle Chairman Rabbi Avrohom Gordimer. “This is not the time for blind naivete. Jews have just been massacred in the worst pogrom since the Nazi Holocaust. SJP should be defunded and removed from every American campus, and under no circumstances should it be granted the ability to assault Jewish students under the guise of ‘resistance’ tomorrow.”
