5/2/17 – SJP published a statement condemning Stony Brook University MSA for collaborating with “Zionist Hillel” on an event to benefit Syrian refugees, saying, “The MSA could have done a Syria fundraiser by themselves, but still with our club informing them, decided to work with the Zionist group.” The statement continues, “We believe that Zionism should not be on campus…Zionism is a racist nationalistic ideology which has led to genocide, ethnic cleansing, military aggression, apartheid etc. MSA has shown that they do not believe in boycotting or divesting from Zionism.” The statement pulls various quotes from SJP members in New York, with one saying, “As an active Muslim member of MSA at CUNY, I believe it is our duty as Muslims to condemn any forms of collaboration with Zionist organizations. These associations brainwash us into thinking that the discrimination and ethnic cleansing of an indigenous population is justified”.

In the News ?

March 5, 2015: The Stony Brook Press – Banksy in Gaza: Discovering a New Destination (Description note, “Banksy is now attempting to raise awareness about the Palestinian territory of Gaza.  He posted a photo of a carnival swing ride attached to a surveillance tower, with the caption, ‘Gaza is often described as the world’s largest open air prison because no-one is allowed to enter or leave.  But that seems a bit unfair to prisons – they don’t have their electricity and drinking water cut off randomly almost every day.’”)
