Cal (UCB) = UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA BERKELEY
SJP = STUDENTS FOR JUSTICE IN PALESTINE
SJP LEADERSHIP = Husam Zakharia, leader of the Students for Justice in Palestine
On Friday, March 5, 2010:
University of California at Berkeley was again the site of a clash involving pro-Israel and anti-Israel activists last Friday when Husam Zakharia, leader of the Students for Justice in Palestine, assaulted Jessica Felber of the pro-Israel Tikvah group with a shopping cart.
WHAT WAS THE RESULT?
Felber told Israel National News that she responded to the incident by immediately placing her attacker under citizens’ arrest. Police arrested him later that day and Felber expressed hope that the District Attorney will see the case through and file charges against Zakharia.
HAVE TIKVAH STUDENTS BEEN HARASSED BEFORE?
Felber said that Friday’s incident was not the first time Zakharia used violence against pro-Israel advocates. According to her, physical intimidation has frequently been employed as a tool by SJP to silence students opposing their anti-Zionist activities on campus. SJP students have been terrorizing us for three years with intimidation, accusations and threats. This incident is simply the culmination of it all and we are not going to tolerate it anymore.READ THE FULL STORY: Anti-Israel Activist Attacks Jewish Girl on Campus
