Judaism against Hamas. .
Speaking before the House Ways and Means Committee, Tishby said violence and harassment against Jewish students “has been planned, engineered and incubated for decades by highly funded and professionally organized groups with close ties to terrorist organizations, such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.” “.
“One of the main perpetrators of Jew hatred on campus is Students for Justice in Palestine, or SJP,” she said in her opening statement.

Every college in this country should ban SJP, never letting them back. We will not fund KKK chapters on our campuses.” Colleges. We shouldn’t be funding SJP classes at our colleges either.
