ADL Releases Report On American Muslims for Palestine

AMP press con­fer­ence at a Metro North station

The Anti-Defamation League today released a new report on Amer­i­can Mus­lims for Pales­tine (AMP), the anti-Israel orga­ni­za­tion behind this week’s ad cam­paign appear­ing on 25 Metro North train sta­tions in New York.

The ad, which was announced on the first day of the Jew­ish hol­i­day of Passover, shows an image of an Israeli aim­ing a weapon at a Pales­tin­ian child amid a back­ground of the sep­a­ra­tion bar­rier between Israel and the West Bank. The ad is indica­tive of the organization’s con­tin­u­ing efforts to pro­mote its extreme anti-Israel views to a wider Amer­i­can audience.

ADL’s report details AMP’s con­tin­u­ous efforts to dele­git­imize and demo­nize the Jew­ish state while pro­vid­ing anti-Zionist train­ing and edu­ca­tion to stu­dents and Mus­lim com­mu­nity orga­ni­za­tion through­out the country.

Since its found­ing in 2005, AMP has at times pro­vided a plat­form for anti-Semitism under the guise of estu­dents for jus­tice in pales­tine, adl, ducat­ing Amer­i­cans about “the just cause of Pales­tine.” In more recent years, it has placed heavy empha­sis on pro­vid­ing sup­port and help­ing coor­di­nate the activ­ity of cam­pus anti-Israel stu­dent groups, includ­ing Stu­dents for Jus­tice in Pales­tine (SJP), the pri­mary orga­nizer of anti-Israel events on cam­pus, as well as high school students.

    It’s not really nec­es­sary to ‘demo­nize’ Israel. Given its apartheid wall, land theft, and geno­cide against the Palas­tini­ans since 1948, con­tin­u­ing now in Gaza and the West Bank, Israel seems demonic enough on its own.
