A photo shared by Students for Justice in Palestine at the University of California, Santa Barbara on March 12, 2018.

The anti-Zionist group Students for Justice in Palestine at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) published a series of images on Monday that appeared to condone violent terror attacks.

The Facebook post included a photo of a Palestinian woman holding a pistol, as well as a cartoon — drawn in an outline of Israel and the Palestinian territories — depicting a woman with an AK-47 assault rifle.

Another photo featured Leila Khaled, who helped hijack two planes in Europe on behalf of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, armed with both a knife and gun. The Marxist-Leninist group is blacklisted as a terrorist organization by the United States.

“Solidarity is the weapon and armed resistance is the catalyst,” SJP captioned the post. “Support all mujeres taking arms against imperialism.”

In response to criticism, a moderator of the page appeared to defend “the justified methods of those Palestinians seeking liberation from fascist Israeli occupation & apartheid.”

SJP said in a comment published below the post that it did “not condone bigotry against any group of people no matter their race, ethnicity, religion, class position, and/or gender & sexual orientation, etc.”

The original post was shared by SJP at the University of California, Santa Cruz, as well as a number of Facebook users who expressed concern about its content.

A spokesperson for UCSB did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Sow the wind and you shall reap the whirlwind.
    The Muslim arabs have a culture and history of hate and disdain for human life. If you are in any doubt, look at what is happening right now in the middle east – in syria, the government using nerve gas and carpet bombing on its own citizens.
    The SJP supporters focus their hatred on Israel, but that is only a convenient current target.this will attract support from those who hate Zionism and will therefore ignore the real qualities of the Palestinians. Arab hatred of Israel did not stem form Israeli settlement, it began far before Israel came into existence – it is outlined in their Koran. Even Hamas does not attrbute its target of destruction of Jews to Israeli settlements – they regard those of proof of their pre-existence belief. Jews must be killed because they are not Moslems. that’s it. But what is also outlined in their Koran is that ALL infidels (ALL – not just jews) must submit to Islam or die. That is their holy instruction. And they are also required to deceive infidels to advance this cause. And here they are, doing it so well – deceiving the idiotic hard-left liberals into supporting thier agenda, without understanding they are being used and they too will be targeted.

  • Some universities in the US have become hotbeds for Islamic terrorism.

    They are becoming more honest by the day. Students for just us in palestine are showing their true colors and, true to form, the administration looks on with beatific smiles.

  • A. Golem

    You are surely very right, Jeffrey, that there is no reasonable explanation for the anti-Semitic insanity across campuses today!

    this is what leftist Jews enable when they support the immigration of muslims.

    Regarding UCSB non comment about open hate at the University by fanatics. It is only a matter of time until these cowards open fire.
