Students for Justice in Palestine, a group of faculty and students dedicated to furthering the cause of the Palestinian people, recently launched a new advocacy and membership drive campaign at San Diego State University to coincide with the start of the fall semester. Called “The Right Side,” the campaign aims to “educate the student community about the reality of apartheid in Palestine,” SJP co-chair Nadir Bouhmouch said in an email to The College Fix. The campaign, unique to San Diego State, touts big-name celebrities and academics who support Palestinian causes. At least one pro-Israel group on campus has expressed concern about the campaign, which includes fliers posted around campus, saying some of the claims in the campaign are not accurate and the effort overall could “divide and destroy our campus climate.”
