Prompted by recent anti-Semitic incidents at the University of California at Davis, 23 human rights organizations, with a support base in the hundreds of thousands, have demanded UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi conduct a formal investigation into Students for Justice in Palestine and a student senator for their involvement in acts of “hatred and bigotry on campus.”
A letter spearheaded by the California-based anti-Semitism watchdog group, AMCHA Initiative, and the pro-Israel Zionist Organization of America, requests Chancellor Katehi:
Conduct a full investigation into the conduct of the registered student group called Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and one of its members, Azka Fayyaz. We believe that the investigation will reveal that both the SJP and Ms. Fayyaz have violated university policies and fostered divisiveness, hatred and bigotry on campus in violation of the Principles of Community. They should be held accountable for their misconduct.
The “conduct” in question began on January 29th when the Associated Students of UC Davis passed an anti-Israel divestment resolution that called on the UC Board of Regents to “divest from corporations that aid in the Israeli occupation of Palestine and illegal settlements in Palestinian territories.” The legislation was written and promoted by SJP. Avideo of the meeting reveals that as Jewish and pro-Israel students were leaving the room, they were taunted by chanting of “Allahu Akbar.”
