Report: Left-Wing Groups and Long-Time Activists Trained Anti-Israel Protesters for Months

Anti-Israel protesters at many of America’s universities have been consulting with and sometimes trained by left-wing groups and activists, some of which have ties to support of terrorism, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

Protesters at universities across the country have consulted with groups like National Students for Justice in Palestine (NSJP) and Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, in some cases resulting in months of training, planning and encouragement, according to the WSJ.

Administrators and police have battled pro-Palestinian protesters in recent days at schools like Columbia and the University of California, Los Angeles, in some cases calling in officers with riot gear using tear gas and flashbangs.

Students at Columbia attended a “teach-in” run by former members of the Black Panthers prior to protesting, who educated them about handling internal disputes in political movements and discussed the parallels between gentrification in Harlem and the conflict between Israel and Palestine, according to the WSJ.

“We took notes from our elders, engaged in dialogue with them and analyzed how the university responded to previous protests,” said Sueda Polat, graduate student and organizer in the pro-Palestinian encampment at Columbia, told the WSJ.

The NSJP, which has over 300 chapters across the country, has been involved in the organization of many pro-Palestinian demonstrations on college campuses as of late, according to the WSJ. The group has utilized social media to give advice to protesters, like covering their faces and how to deal with police and protests, as well as calling for universities to divest from Israel.

Columbia held “Resistance 101” training in March for students, which included a guest speaker from controversial Canada-based group, Samidoun, which celebrated Hamas’ attacks on Israel on Oct. 7 that sparked the recent conflict, according to the WSJ. The school opposed the event, twice banning it due to organizers’ ties to terrorism, with students hosting it virtually anyway, resulting in several suspensions.

“There is nothing wrong with being a member of Hamas, being a leader of Hamas, being a fighter in Hamas,” Charlotte Kates, Samidoun coordinator, said at the event, according to the WSJ. “These are the people that are on the front lines defending Palestine.”

Hamas’ initial attack on Oct. 7 of last year killed roughly 1,200 people, and the group still holds both Israeli and American hostages. The U.S. State Department has recognized Hamas as a terrorist organization since 1997.

A group of law firms representing victims of recent Hamas attacks launched a suit on Thursday against the NSJP and the American Muslims for Palestine, arguing that the groups worked to propagandize and advance Hamas’ goals.

    this is why all the muslim nations around Israel refuse to allow any palis into their nations. They did way back in the 50’s 60’s and they promptly went after the power structure trying to upend it and replace it with their own. So nations just quit allowing them to enter. Now you see some of that same thing in the US, trying to upend the existing power structure, not thru military as they are a tiny fraction of our nation, but by getting the sheep in our colleges and universities to support them. They will gain experience and learn and try it again. They do not just say death to Israel, it is always followed with death to america. But Biden doesn’t care, he wants to bring in more.

    Biden’s “FACIST” ideology “FROZE” a planned arms shipment to Israel, should be raising “CONCERNS” ~ Israel is America’s “ALLY”!!!

    This weapons shipment to Israel, includes ammo and other American-made arms. this marks the “FIRST” time the U.S. has suspended arms shipments to Israel since Hamas’ October 7th invasion of the Jewish state.

    “WHY”??? Because Israel reiterates its plans to enter Rafah, the last Hamas stronghold in the Gaza Strip,

    “NOW THE REAL REASON WHY THE HALT”

    FROM WIN (WORLD ISREAL NEWS) ~ Sullivan: No Saudi deal without Israeli normalization

    The Biden administration has been pushing for a defense deal with the Saudis that includes Riyadh joining the Abraham Accords. (ISREAL SUFFERS BECAUSE BIDEN PUSHES A DEFENSE DEAL W/ SAUDI~ MORE BLOOD SPILLED ESPECIALLY KNOWING THIS ISN’T A GOOD DEAL~ANYTHING BIDEN DOES ISN’T)

    The president’s team has also consistently emphasized the importance of concessions to the Palestinians as part of any pact. (“IMPORTANCE” OF CONCESSIONS TOWARD THE PALENSTIANS & “NOT” THE JEWISH POPULOUS)

    The Saudis froze Israeli normalization talks after the Hamas-led attack of Oct. 7 and the ensuing war in Gaza, but have maintained that they are still open to a deal.

    Conflicting reports have emerged from the kingdom on the importance of the Palestinian issue to securing an agreement, although official statements from Washington and Riyadh have stressed that it is essential. (MORE CONFLICTION)

    “The integrated vision is a bilateral understanding between the United States and Saudi Arabia combined with normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia, combined with meaningful steps on behalf of the Palestinian people,” Sullivan said. “All of that has to come together…you can’t disentangle one piece from the others.” (BIDEN’S “FACIST”” VISION BETWEEN THE U.S. & SAUDI COMBO TO APPEASE THE PALENSTIANS OVER THE JEWS~ AMERICA IS TO AID OUR ALLIES & NOT ALLOW ANY BLOOD /FURTHER BLOODSHED AS THIS HAS BECOME THE NORM FOR THIS REGIME)

    Sullivan’s remarks follow similar comments by State Department spokesman Matthew Miller at a press briefing in Washington on May 2 that any security pact between the United States and Saudi Arabia would be contingent on a normalization agreement between Riyadh and Jerusalem.

    “In the potential normalization agreement that we were talking about with Saudi Arabia, there are several components,” Miller said. “One component is a package of agreements between the United States and Saudi Arabia. Another component is normalization of relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel. And another package would be a path to two states for the Palestinian people.” (MORE DEALS THAT WOULD PROVIDE “2” STATES FOR THE PALESTINIANS)

    AGAIN, HOW MUCH MORE BLOOD MUST BE SPILLED~ BIDEN GIVES MONEY TO IRAN & THEY DICTATE THEIR TERMS TO BIDEN ALL THE WHILE CHANT “DEATH TO AMERICA” BUT YET BIDEN “FROZE AMMO & OTHER WEAPONS TO ISRAEL FOR A DEAL W/THE PALESTIANS & THE PROTESTING CONTINUES ACROSS AMERICA~ LOOKS LIKE A “SLAP IN THE FACE” TO ISRAEL AS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN AMERICA WILL BE SEVERED!!
