Criticism comes after San Diego State student leaders rejected BDS resolution
A pro-Palestinian campus activist group has laid blame for recent deaths in Gaza very close to home – their home – San Diego State University.
Students for Justice in Palestine recently declared SDSU’s refusal to support divesting from companies that do business with Israel means it has blood on its hands.
The SJP Facebook post included an image of an explosion from an Israeli rocket strike, with the campus logo and headline: “San Diego State University – Ethnic cleansing starts here.”
It went on to state: “After decades of partnership with Boeing, Raytheon, and Lockheed Martin; and an exceptional performance in 2008 and 2012. We at SDSU are once again, proud sponsors of Israel’s bombing of Gaza. This year we continue to celebrate the blood on our hands from thousands of Palestinians’ deaths by keeping red and black our official colors.”
The declaration comes as the active and controversial student group continues to push its campus to endorse the Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement against Israel.
