Does Tufts University officially support the BDS movement now? That’s the message this sends.

Tufts University Hosting Islamists to Train Students in ‘Direct Action’

A controversial Islamist group will gather at Tufts University on Friday for a weekend-long conference that will include training students to take “direct action” against pro-Israel and Jewish students on U.S. campuses, according to a schedule of the conference obtained by the Free Beacon.

The event, held by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), which is run by the American Muslims for Palestine, has raised concerns among students who feel threatened by the group’s highly aggressive—and sometimes violent—tactics.

SJP is known for leading some the most hostile anti-Israel campaigns on campus, including comparisons of the Jewish state to Nazi Germany, promotion of the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, and advocacy for the terrorist group Hamas.

SJP affiliates on several U.S. campuses have been banned by school administrators for disseminating materials described by critics as anti-Semitic

This weekend’s conference at Tufts will feature a seminar on “Direct Action” as well as numerous panels on how to promote BDS against Israel on campus.

The Saturday afternoon workshop on “planning effective, powerful and creative direct action” will teach anti-Israel activists in attendance how they can intimidate pro-Israel students using tactics that some say border on violence, and that in past instances have actually crossed the line into violence.
