A similar effort has sprung up in defense of San Francisco State University Professor Rabab Abdulhadi, who is under attack by the tiny but heavily funded rightwing Zionist "AMCHA Initiative" (see
The Brandeis Center, a ..., 24 June 2014 [cached]
The Brandeis Center, a national civil rigths organization established to combat campus anti-Semitism, joined a letter (below) charging that Professor Abdulhadi had used taxpayer funding to reimburse expenses for a "political solidarity tour" to meet with terrorist organizations and other political extremists in the Middle East.
These groups base their charges on documents obtained by the AMCHA Initaitive through a California Public Records Act request. Based on these documents, it appears that Prof. Abdulhadi received over $7,000 to meet with groups that have been designated by the U.S. Department of State as terrorist organizations. Abdulhadi had apparenty received prior authorization to use these funds to deliver a paper at a scholarly conference, but it appears that she did not attend this conference.
According to documents obtained through a California Public Records Act (PRA) request, it appears that SFSU Professor Rabab Abdulhadi received more than $7,000 in state dollars to meet with members of known terrorist organizations and promote the boycott of Israel. On all of the PRA documents regarding the funding, insurance, and administrative approval of her travels, Abdulhadi indicated that the primary purpose of her trip was academic: to deliver a paper at a scholarly conference in Beirut. However, Abdulhadi never attended the Beirut conference. Instead, as she herself acknowledged at a public event she had organized on the SFSU campus to report on the delegation's experiences, the trip was a "political solidarity tour" to Jordan, the West Bank and Israel, whose primary purpose was to promote "resolute actions in support of the academic and cultural boycott of Israel."
As part of her "political solidarity tour," Abdulhadi met with individuals affiliated with the US State Department-designated terrorist organizations Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and Hamas, including convicted terrorist Leila Khaled and Islamist leader Sheik Raed Salah.
Although evidence demonstrates that Abdulhadi had planned the "political solidarity tour" and meetings with PFLP and Hamas members almost a year in advance, nowhere in the documents she filled out in order to receive funding and insurance from the University did she mention that the primary purpose of her trip was political advocacy -- to promote the academic boycott of Israel -- nor did she mention the intended meetings with individuals affiliated with US State Department-designated terrorist organizations.
We have asked the University to investigate this matter, but have received no response. However, according to the Palestine Solidarity Legal Support website, it appears that the university is defending the professor's personal advocacy mission as "research" and clearing her of all wrong-doing. We are therefore turning to you and requesting that you investigate this potentially fraudulent use of taxpayer dollars.
We also urge you to investigate a June 2011 trip that Prof. Abdulhadi organized and led, the "Indigenous & Women of Color Feminist Delegation to Israel and the West Bank.
