A secretive group that documents anti-Israel and antisemitic campus activities on Thursday released a preliminary report on last week’s disruption of Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat’s speech at San Francisco State University (SFSU), The Algemeiner has learned.

Canary Mission stated that its report sought to “expose the radical leadership” responsible for the disruption, and that it would be “exposing numerous other individuals at the event over the coming days.”

The report identifies the first student leader as Linda Ereikat, an International Relations major at SFSU who is also a “prominent member of the General Union of Palestinian Students (GUPS).” Though Ereikat has been attempting to delete her online history since the incident, the report notes, they already have collected a full dossier on her anti-Israel activities.

The second student leader is identified as Lubna Morrar, a sociology major and current President of GUPS at SFSU. According to the report, Morrar’s Facebook posts are “rife with violence, libels and praise for terrorism,” although The Algemeiner was unable to locate her Facebook page to confirm as of press time. Canary Mission also has assembled a full dossier on Morrar’s anti-Israel activities.

The report next questions the behavior of campus police at the incident, who allegedly stood by while the disruption continued. The group argues that the students’ behavior was “in clear violation of the SFSU Code of Conduct,” which explicitly prohibits behavior that disrupts “the normal operations of the University, or infringes on the rights of” community members.

In fact, as reported by The Algemeiner, SFSU has already announced that it will launch an investigation into the April 7 incident, in which student activists carrying pro-Palestinian flags and wearing checkered kaffiyehs raised their fists as they shouted “Intifada!,” a word many associate with violent attacks on Israelis. They also chanted “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!,” widely recognized as a call for the destruction of Israel. Police were called to the scene, and security guards were summoned to protect Barkat.

In the past two years there have been numerous similar disruptions of campus lectures by Israelis or pro-Israel speakers, including at the University of California Davis, the University of Chicago, the University of Minnesota Law School, the University of Texas Austin, King’s College (London), the University of Windsor, the University of South Florida, and at an LGBTQ Shabbat event in Chicago.

The Canary Mission database was created, according to the organization’s website, in order to “document people and groups that are promoting hatred of the USA, Israel and the Jewish people, particularly on college campuses in North America.”

    German Jews and French Catholics were often tolerant too, until those aggressive Nazis arrived. Time to learn from these aggressive and organized terror sympathizers. Form a group of your own, Americans and Jews.

    so what’s new? who cares? it’s not as if SFU and U of C havent been outed for years as nurturing and harboring pro-palestinian fascist protesters, who imitate nazi behavior on german campuses in the 20s and 30s. and all under the various (dis)guises of freedom of speech and every other (il)legitimate ’cause’ they combine with –collude with– as a form of ‘intersecting’ supported by the (in)humanity profs of their schools. add university of chicago, oberlin, vassar, cuny. the fascist versions of the dying if not already dead humanities departments in the USA university systems. the administrations didnt care when it started, dont care now -for all their revised anti-anti-semitic codes, and are unlikely to care in the future. no wonder the liberal BAs are useless when looking for a job.

    Erekat is the daughter of Saeb Arakat , ex- R H man of Arafat and himself a smooth talking Palestinian activist. Theereb are 2 narratives but the likes of israel’s enemies use free speech by force. it is a 2-way street and should be protected from hasslers but why is Israel unable to take the initiative instead of just putting out the fires?

  • Palestinian students who grew up in countries where there is no free speech and attempt to make that policy in America, where the population sleeps on while Jihadis wage war. Western values turned against the west, where tolerance is abused.

    What took so long?

    Many years ago I jed a successful protest to remove an ANTI SEMITIC Malcolm X mural.

    At that event Malcolm X ANTI ISRAEL-ANTI JEWISH supporters outnumbered us 25 to 1!

  • Marco Redwolf

    The Muslim world is the festering incubator for a virulent strain of Anti Semitism. It needs to be shut down and sanitized. The word incinerated comes to mind. Academia by and large has demonstrated that they have neither the means or the will to control it . In fact they have on many occasions condoned it. America Jews seem to be oblivious to this and continue to support and vote for the radical leftists that allow it to continue. How many Jewish Students are supporting this joke of a self hating Jew named Bernie ? Do they understand they are sowing the seeds of their own destruction? I fear the answer is ” Nope”

  • Zester

    Oh well, these interrupters haven’t yet figured out that
    Israel will survive despite what they’re doing.

  • Wm. J. Levy

    There too many Arab students sent by their governments to forment tensions and relations against Jews and target Israel.

    Something must be done by the Jews and not waiting decades as the so called Jewish leadership has done before this.

    What does it take to make Jews wake up and smell the hate?


    I praise The Canary Mission…..It’s well past the time that a group was organized to be pro-active in stopping the presentation of ideas antagonistic to others……..The shutting down of free speech is very dangerous to a healthy society. Now there is something positive to support this idea.

    Do you need funding?…..What supports this new group?

  • nat cheiman

    Kick those muslims out. Trump is right. Stop muslims from entering America

  • Michel Cromwell

    What’s truly scary about situations happening at colleges across America, is that NONE of these people siding with the Arabs know a damn thing about what the Quran, Sira, and Hadith says about ALL non-muslims! Nearly 80% is about the NEGATIVE, BRUTAL, BARBARIC treatment of those who are non-Muslims. But the muslims have no problem USING infidels/filthy kafir/non-Muslims…or raping (which is what their disgusting pedophile prophet told his idiot followers was their reward for conquest! Muslims use various forms of lying to deceive us, protect themselves, and advance the cause of Islam…which IS NOT RELIGIOUS! Islam is a POLITICAL movement to conquer the entire world…by VIOLENCE! Stop listening to what Muslims “say” about Islam and READ THEIR HATE FILLED, BIGOTED, MURDEROUS BOOKS!

    Does Bank Of America Merrill Lynch know it has a radical (Linda Ereikat)answering its phones?

    If I did have a Bank Of America account, I’d take my money out and tell them why.

    Maybe the people who keep their money in the Israeli branches of BOFA should speak up. How can a bank with Israeli branches holding billions of dollars in deposits employ a woman who is devoted to the destruction of Israel.

    Anyone? Anyone?

    BTW, prior to Bank Of America Linda Ereikat was a bank teller at Wells Fargo.

    It’s on her linked In profile:
