Driven by Hamas: Campus protests led by groups backing Hamas terrorists

Some of the groups that are funding campus protests in opposition to Israel’s Gaza Strip war are Hamas supporters, while others receive funding from billionaires on the left.

Capital Research Center, a nonprofit that analyzes nonprofits and analyzes the causes of protests on college campuses, has found the majority of the groups involved in the recent wave of campus protests to be fronts for Hamas. Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the killing of Jews.

Capital Research Center researcher Ryan Mauro said to The Washington Times, “I was stunned when I began putting the data together.” They didn’t try to hide that this was a Hamas thing.

Mr. Mauro examines more than 100 groups involved in campus protests. He said that most of these organizations have pro-Hamas messages and connections, which contradict claims that protests in Palestine are focused on humanitarian issues.

Lt. Gen. Flynn here. I know how to get revenge after what they did to Trump. There’s a Democrat under indictment that we need to defeat, Henry Cuellar. This district is RIPE for the flipping. And given it’s a majority Latino district, I’ve partnered with Latinos for America First to help us get the Republican candidate, Jay Furman, elected this November. Are you on board?

Israel has been at War since October 7, when Hamas terrorists attacked southern territory and killed approximately 1,200 people, while taking more than 250 hostages. Around 130 hostages are still not released.

Capital Research Center data reveals that groups funding campus protests have links to left-wing funding. Among them is the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights which received $300,000 in 2018 from the Open Society Foundation. The Open Society Foundation was founded by billionaire left-wing George Soros.

The money will be used to promote freedom and a society free of racism and oppression. The Open Society Foundation has also given the group grants in the amount of $250,000 and $150,000 for 2021.

The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, a left-leaning organization, provided $410,000 to the group from 2017 to 2021.

Students and faculty at Columbia University and other universities claim that the protests are aimed at ending Israel’s war on Hamas which has caused thousands of civilian deaths in Gaza. The protesters claim that the demonstrations aren’t anti-Jewish.

The groups that are playing a major role in these protests send a strong anti-Israel and anti-Jewish signal.

The group Columbia University Apartheid Divest held press conferences and led the pro-Palestinian protests at the New York City campus that shut the campus down for days before the police took over on Tuesday night.

On social media, the group describes itself as a coalition consisting of more than 100 student groups “fighting for an liberated Palestine and to end Columbia’s complicity with genocide.”

Mr. Mauro stated that the group had held joint events in conjunction with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a terrorist organisation based in Gaza & the West Bank, which seeks to destroy Israel & remove Western capitalism from the Middle East.

Last week, the terrorist group was also mentioned at Duke University protests. Duke University’s school newspaper reported that the flag of the organization was briefly flown on campus in Durham, North Carolina during a protest. The school officials requested that it be taken down.

The group Neturei Karta showed up at protests held by the University of California in Los Angeles.

The Orthodox Jewish Haredi group is strongly anti-Zionist, and opposes the existence of Israel for religious reasons.

The Times of Israel reported that several members of Neturei Karta had met with Palestinians who were part of local terrorist groups in a refugee camps in the West Bank last year.

The American Jewish Committee said that one of the leading organizers of college campus protests – Students for Justice in Palestine – which led those at Columbia University, UCLA, and George Washington University praised Hamas terrorists as well as the deaths of innocent Israeli citizens. The group has also been accused of harassing Jewish students and pro-Israeli students on college campus.

Students for Justice in Palestine receives funding at least in part from Mr. Soros. Over the years, his Open Society Foundation gave millions of dollars to Tides Foundation. The Tides Foundation funds the Westchester People’s Action Coalition Foundation. Mr. Mauro stated that WESPAC was “the fiscal sponsorship” of Students for Justice in Palestine, and administered tax-deductible contributions on behalf of the group.

Students for Justice in Palestine representatives said that they did not receive direct funding directly from WESPAC.

Mr. Mauro stated that those who deny antisemitic roots are ignoring the key organizers, who appear repeatedly on college campuses when the protests grow and anti-Jewish messages increase.

He said that Hamas supporters are the ones who are causing the protests despite the fact that students in front of cameras deny their cause to be Hamas.

Police broke up and removed tents from a protest camp at the University of Wisconsin Madison on Wednesday. The school paper reported that the protest was organized Students for Justice in Palestine, and the Young Democratic Socialists of America. Both groups are increasingly seen as antisemitic.

Mr. Mauro stated, “Yes, students do it themselves to a certain extent.” Where do they get other support?” The students can start with these groups and then have their own spin.
