11/29/2016 – UMass Boston SJP held the event “UMB SJP Presents Iyad Burnat” to discuss “nonviolent resistance and the fight for human rights in Palestine.” During the event, Burnat said that Israel’s establishment in 1948 was “the Palestinian Holocaust,” that he and all Palestinians “believe that the American media is controlled by the Zionist media,” that Israel was “worse than apartheid in South Africa,” and he called for BDS.
7/14/15 – UMass Boston SJP was one of 9 Boston area student groups that published a Youtube video falsely accused Israel of “crimes against humanity” being an “apartheid state” and urges viewers, especially students, to take action by organizing in their respective communities and joining the BDS movement.
