SJP UT Arlington - Failing to Disavow Anti-Semitic Members
After Canary Mission first published Ellahi’s profile in February of 2017, along with profiles of other UT Arlington students who spread anti-Jewish social media postings, SJP UT Arlington stated on Facebook: "... Sjp has never had any members make any anti-Semitic statements, and if found any that did we would terminate their membership immediately."
Canary Mission found no evidence that Ellahi’s affiliation with SJP UT Arlington was "terminated." Canary mission also uncovered no evidence that Ellahi retracted any of his anti-Semitic statements. Ellahi has privated his social media accounts
Canary Mission’s evidence that Ellahi was an active member of SJP UT Arlington is extensive. On February 20, 2015, Ellahi, claimed to be a representative of SJP UT Arlington, tweeting: "Reppin #SJP today," along with a photo of the back and front of a SJP Arlington T-Shirt. Ellahi then tweeted “S/o to @the_commISHoner for the shirt!"
The Twitter handle @the_commISHoner belongs to UT Arlington student and fellow SJP member Ismail Said Aboukar. Ellahi’s February 20, 2015 Twitter thread with Aboukar contained a subsequent exchange between Ellahi and Aboukar — also referencing Ellahi’s representation of UT Arlington SJP with an additional photograph of the SJP T-Shirt. Other SJP UT Arlington members, indicated below, also posted anti-Semitic statements.

SJP was co-founded in 2001 at the University of California at Berkeley (UC Berkeley) by Professors Hatem Bazian and Snehal Shingavi. Bazian served as president of the General Union of Palestinian Students (GUPS) while studying at San Francisco State University (SFSU) and headed the Muslim Students Association (MSA) while earning his M.A. at UC Berkeley. In 2004, while the second intifada was already winding down in Israel, he called for an intifada in the United States.
Shingavi, an activist tied to the International Socialist Organization (ISO), has been criticized for using his literature course as a vehicle for promoting anti-Israel propaganda. SJP has grown to become the primary student movement advancing the Palestinian national agenda on North American campuses and is the primary force behind BDS campaigns at most schools.
SJP activists frequently intimidate and harass Jewish and pro-Israel students. SJP members have physically assaulted Jewish students, aggressively disrupted pro-Israel events and possibly vandalized communal property. SJP rallies regularly include hate-speech and chants such as “Long Live The Intifada" and “From the River to the Sea Palestine will be Free" — calls for violence and for the destruction of the Jewish state.
SJP chapters frequently run inflammatory campaigns against Israel, including BDS resolutions, rallies, Israel-Apartheid initiatives, propaganda comparing Israel to Nazi Germany, mock checkpoints and “die-ins."
