Response to Hate Posters

On the morning of Monday, February 23, offensive and graphic flyers were posted around ASU Tempe campus. The flyers pictured a bloodied and beaten man being dragged by his feet behind a motorcycle. The words “Students for Justice in Palestine” and “#JewHaters” were emblazoned on the image.

Soon after the flyers were posted, a non-ASU political organization called the David Horowitz Freedom Center published a statement confirming that they were responsible. Until now, no investigation has taken place to determine whether or not ASU students were involved in the posting of these flyers.

We at Students for Justice in Palestine are appalled by these posters. Not only do these posters inaccurately label SJP as violent and anti-Semitic, they also foster an attitude of fear, hatred, and mistrust towards us because the ASU community will now associate these posters with SJP.

To reify our longstanding values, we as an organization strongly condemn all forms of violence and hate speech.  We are a nonviolent, non-political, non-religious organization promoting awareness about Palestine and stand in solidarity with all human rights movements.

We are grateful for the support of various organizations, from Bruins for Israel, J Street U at UCLA, to Jewish Voice for Peace, for writing statements condemning these flyers unequivocally.
