A number of students registered for the National SJP Conference were confronted by flag-waving Zionists moments ago. According to Roqayah Chamseddine, a conference attendee also known by the Twitter handle @iRevolt, a group of pro-Israel protesters bearing American and Israeli flags confronted SJP members in an attempt to intimidate them and disrupt their involvement in the conference.
The protesters gathered at the main entrance of the journalism building at Columbia University. At least one Zionist protester carried a sign labeling the SJP Conference as a form of “stealth jihad“. Another protester reportedly said that all Jews who grant Palestinians any land should be “beheaded”.
Another protester physically attacked a student and was arrested by police officers.
Ironically, Chamseddine’s tweets appeared right after another SJP member sitting in on a media workshop tweeted about the likelihood of Zionists to attempt to disrupt and provoke students working for the Palestinian cause.
