LA City Council Calls on UCLA to Cancel National SJP Hate Conference
An important development ahead of National SJP’s hate conference at UCLA:
According to a source, city councilman Paul Koretz introduced the resolution, which stated the concern that the conference “will promote anti-Semitism.”
“SJP members have posted violent anti-Semitic rhetoric on social media, ranging from calling for the annihilation of the Jewish people, to the admiration of Adolf Hitler and hateful calls to ‘kill Jews’ ‘kill all Zionists’ and ‘let’s stuff some Jews in the oven,’” the resolution states.
The resolution also noted that SJP’s website “comparing Israel to the Nazis” would constitute as the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism.
Additionally, the resolution stated the concern that SJP would be excluding students from attending the conference who are not approved by SJP or other pro-Palestinian groups on campus.
“A public university should not allow any group to implement a litmus test for event participation on their campus based on an attendee’s beliefs, religion, or national origin,” the resolution states.
Therefore, the resolution argued that this would violate Title VI of the Civil Rights Act that “prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in federally assisted programs or activities.”
“The Regents of the University of California should let UCLA know that it is not appropriate for SJP to have a meeting on campus, especially where many of the leaders of the organization are calling for violence against Jews,” the resolution stated. “It is never a good time to have this type of event, but given the atmosphere in the country, including the recent shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue and arson at synagogues in New York, it is inappropriate for UCLA to host such a conference.”
I would just add that it is more than all of this; as I have proven, National SJP was actually founded by antisemites, terror supporters and those with terrorist connections.
But the news is not all positive. Following my post yesterday about the hater’s refusal to remove the bear logo from their artwork advertising the conference, this just in:
*Bear* with us…. because UCLA Admin has responded to our legal letter and officially informed us that they are backing down! Alexa play Dammi Falastini 🐻

I assume Dammi Falastini does not translate to “Damn Palestine”.
