A prominent anti-Israel activist has hailed Sunday’s deadly truck-ramming attack in Jerusalem — in which four IDF soldiers were murdered and another 16 were wounded — as a “F*** you” to “settlers.”

A day after the attack, Nerdeen Kiswani, president of the New York City chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, posted on Facebook that the killings — which sparked celebrations in the streets of the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem — “remind settlers that there will never be peace on stolen land.”

According to Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, it is the murderous activity Kiswani supported on social media, and not “settlers living in peace in their communities,” that are “roadblocks” to ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“She took advantage of our wonderful democracy in America to be a cheerleader for murder, nothing more, nothing less,” Cooper said.

Sarah Stern, founder and president of the think tank the Endowment for Middle East Truth, told The Algemeiner that Kiswani’s “deification of violence is the direct result of years of brainwashing” by Palestinian groups Fatah and Hamas.

Cooper also criticized those in the West who excuse terrorism and the celebration of the killing of Jews as natural consequences of an “occupation.”

“Those who are in favor of a two-state solution and are sympathetic to the Palestinian side must take the lead in denouncing such behavior — and not hand a moral blank check to the Palestinians,” he said.

Kiswani has a history of posting anti-Israel comments on social media, once tweeting a list of chants activists should use at rallies, including, “There is only one solution/Intifada Revolution,” “It is right, to rebel/Israel, Go to hell” and “We don’t want no two state/We want 48,” referring to the year that the state of Israel was established.

In response to a request for comment, Alexi Shalom — a New York City SJP representative — threatened to sue The Algemeiner.

The original post on Kiswani’s personal Facebook page appears to have been deleted. For the full text, highlighted by watchdog group SJP Uncovered, see below:

    Kiswani is a despicable individual who uses her face to lure people toherself -the exact opposite of Islam where the women wear a hajib. Any religion that is a proponet of death and killing should not be allowed in America.-takeit back to the desert with the scorpions and inselcts. yOU DON’T BELONG IN A FREE SOCIETY SINCE YOUR RELIGION IS ONE OF HATRED.tAKE IT aWAY AND PUT IT INTO THE sANd

  • henrytobias

    So what else is new?

  • SteveC1

    Am curious as to exactly what SJP would sue The Algemeiner over…

  • mark

    The murder of the four young soldiers was an act of war. Murderous Judenrein Arab Palestine must be completely destroyed. The Israeli State is a collaborator with this vile hateful murderous enemy and can never ever be trusted. A new arabrein Jewish Palestine must declare independence and assert complete authentic Jewish sovereignty over the land and crush the foreign enemy.

  • David Sherman

    The Israel-haters continue tot prove that Israel cannot afford to give up the West Bank: it would crate another Gaza next door and would be national suicide. Israel’s response to Palestinian celebration of the killing of Israelis should be to formally annex Maale Adumim and other areas that are clearly Israeli.

  • enufizenuf

    She’s right, once the Paleostinians return to their native countries of Syria, Egypt, Trans-Jordan, Tunisia, Bosnia, etc., etc. there will be a great deal more peace in the area. Even the Koran says Israel belongs to the Jews, sweetie-with-murder-in-your-eyes!

  • markscotto

    It’s time for SJP to be designated as a hate organization and for the federal government to defund universities that enable and permit university funds to flow to hate organizations. That won’t deprive SJP of free speech but it will require them to raise their own funds and not indirectly receive federal government funding.

  • Thought is Free

    Wake up, America, to this hate speech and deport her.

  • proctologsOfZion

    Oops. Muslim pedophile-worshipper sub-human waste of skin alert….

  • brenrod

    wouldnt it be great if a sniper took her and her family out? I would celebrate.

  • Avigail

    Islam, the religion of peace.

  • uptownwoman

    Kiswani should be deported. She shouldn’t enjoy any priveleges. Only she and her fellow savages can rejoice in murder. F*** you, Kiswani.

  • mikep1738

    If they were truly for “justice in Palestine” they would be demanding the expulsion of all the hundreds of illegal Arab settlements built in western Palestine during the post-invasion occupation by foreign Arab armies on land over which they never had sovereignty nor title. Then they would be demanding the expulsion of the foreign Arab tribe that rules over eastern Palestine.

    But that’s irrelevant since they’re only interested in the ethnic cleansing of Jews from what they perceive to be former Arab-Islamic land.

    What a truly repugnant excuse for a human being. At least she does an excellent job representing what her people truly want.
