As we have previously written, San Francisco State University is set to host a webinar on September 23 featuring a former Palestinian hijacker, Leila Khaled. Her appearance (via Zoom) is being sponsored by SFSU professor Rabab Abdulhadi, a radical Palestinian who uses her professorship to indoctrinate her students against Israel-which is exactly what this upcoming event is all about.
Not surprisingly, SFSU president, Lynn Mahoney is defending the appearance of this former terrorist by claiming academic freedom. Here is a sample of her responses to those who have emailed her in protest, and here is a message she recently sent the campus community.
Mahoney points out that since the university is a “:marketplace of ideas” (except those that are conservative, pro-Israel, pro-America, or pro-Trump), they must sometimes host speakers and ideas with which they do not agree.
But as the AMCHA Initiative effectively points out in their latest letter to Mahoney, the sponsor, Abdulhadi, enthusiastically endorses Khaled’s point of view. I would be shocked if there are any opposing voices in this webinar or whatever they call it. This is simply the latest exercise in indoctrination for which SFSU has become so famous over the last several decades.
Below is the AMCHA letter:
“Dear President Mahoney,
“An invitation to a public figure to speak to a class should not be construed as an endorsement of point of view…An important outcome of the college experience is to learn to think critically and come to independent, personal conclusions about events of local and global importance.” 
- In 2013, AMED co-sponsored an on-campus event that involved students using stencils to create placards and T-shirts with the image of a keffiyeh-clad Leila Khaled holding an AK-47 rifle accompanied by the message, “Resistance is Not Terrorism,” and other stencils with the message, “My Heroes Have Always Killed Colonizers” . In the wake of public outrage over the event’s unambiguous lionizing of a convicted terrorist and promotion of terrorism against Israel, Prof. Abdulhadi defended the event as a legitimate use of academic freedom .
- Since 2015, at least 43 AMED-sponsored classes and events have contained expression so blatantly anti-Zionist that it meets the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism , and more than one-third of the AMED-sponsored classes and events involved the promotion of BDS .
- Prof. Abdulhadi has frequently used the “AMED Studies at SFSU” Facebook page, which bears the official AMED logo, to post messages vilifying Israel, promoting BDS , and denigrating Israel’s supporters, including and especially Jewish and pro-Israel students at SFSU, such as when she posted a message to the AMED Facebook page stating that “welcoming Zionists to campus…[is] a declaration of war against Arabs, Muslims, [and] Palestinians”.
