In May 2017, Stanford University’s SJP gave a platform to Aarab Barghouti — son of Marwan Barghouti, a Palestinian terrorist leader who was convicted on five counts of murder — with support from the school’s student senate. Aarab described his father as a “freedom fighter” and called his crimes a form of “resistance.” Jewish students have also had to face hatred directed from the far-right, including over a dozen swastikas and antisemitic fliers that appeared on campus in 2017. Some of these students have accused their peers of remaining silent in the face of anti-Jewish hostility, with one noting that “there’s certainly a feeling of being alone as a Jewish community on campus and not necessarily enclosed in the fold of solidarity that sometimes is shown among different student minority groups.” (Photo credit: Wikipedia.)
