Professor Rabab Abdulhadi has been under the ugliest forms of attack on academic freedom and freedom of expression by the Zionist groups in the United States.
Since 2010, Dr. Abdulhadi has been working as a one-person program acting as faculty, staff, and fighting against overt and covert manifestations of Islamophobia and racism against Arabs, Muslims and Palestinians on SFSU campus.
Over the past year, advocates for justice in Palestine at SFSU have been subjected to multiple attacks by David Horowitz who has been identified as a, “driving force of the anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant and anti-black movements” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
On October 14, 2016 and May 3, 2017, students found in plain view dozens of racist, bullying posters that target student advocates for justice in/for Palestine, including members of the General Union of Palestinian Students (GUPS), and Professor Rabab Abdulhadi and the Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas (AMED) Studies program, the only program to focus on Arab and Muslim communities in their homelands and the US and center social justice and Palestinian history, culture and social movements.
These relentless bullying attacks by several right-wing pro-Israel groups such as David Horowitz, Canary Mission, AMCHA, Campus Watch, Stand With US, Simon Wiesenthal Center, Middle East Forum and the Zionist Organization of America are deliberate.
They seek to smear Dr. Abdulhadi’s reputation and damage her standing as a scholar, teacher and public intellectual and destroy the AMED Studies program in the process.
The latest episode of harassment and bullying is the lawsuit filed by the racist and Islamophobic “Lawfare Project” against SFSU, in which Professor Abdulhadi was named. She was served on June 23, 2017.
Let us all stand up for Professor Abdulhadi and show them what universal solidarity means!
