Promoting Violence

On September 11, 2016, Alaeddin tweeted: “The existence of Zionists anywhere within my view makes me want to fight."

On June 28, 2016, Alaeddin tweeted: “violence might be Palestine's only chance. BDS is the other and that's being shut down by major governments."

Excusing Terrorism

On January 8, 2017 — the day of a deadly Palestinian truck-ramming attack in Jerusalem — Alaeddin tweeted: “By definition, Israel is a terrorist state. Palestinians are an occupied indigenous people. Resistance to occupation is not terrorism."

Spreading Conspiracy Theories

On September 21, 2016, Alaeddin tweeted: “Consider this for a second. Israel is so influential in Congress that they quite literally blackmail the US just so the US can sell arms." Alaeddin added: “When will it be unacceptable for a senator or congressperson to value Israeli interests over the US's?"

Equating Israel with Nazi Germany

On July 30, 2014 — during Operation Protective Edge — Alaeddin tweeted: “#Israel #GenocideinGaza." The tweet featured a photo of Adolf Hitler saluting, with the caption “We are the Master Race," in front of Jews in concentration camps, above a photo of Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, saying “We are the Chosen people."

Israel commenced Operation Protective Edge (OPE) in July 2014, to stop rocket fire targeting Israeli civilians and to destroy Hamas attack tunnels.

Demonizing Zionists

On June 20, 2016, in response to a tweet that read: “what do want for your Palestinian fellows then, why don’t you try living happily ever after with Israelis side by side then? Alaeddin tweeted: “.@b2Lkl but that's exactly it! We want to live side by side with our allies. Everyone that's not a Zionist is welcome in Palestine."

On June 10, 2016, Alaeddin tweeted: “My one deal breaker: Zionism." Alaeddin continued: “I can date a meat eater, I can date a conservative (difficult), but I can't date a Zionist."

On March 19, 2016, in response to a tweet by Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, that read: “The BDS movement, like Israeli Apartheid Week, has no place on Canadian campuses.

On September 29, 2014, Alaeddin tweeted: “@adffla he's a Zionist pig. :(“

On March 8, 2017, Alaeddin tweeted: “yes they have. Zionism is a white nationalist colonial ideal. Your argument is pointless."

On June 15, 2016, Alaeddin tweeted: “what's the difference? Zionism is a violent racist ideology that making peace with makes you complicit to it."

On June 7, 2016, Alaeddin tweeted: “When challenged about poverty in Israel this Zionist quickly shows their racism. Zionism is always racism."

Defaming Israel

On March 30, 2017, Alaeddin tweeted: “Israel’s Apartheid is hard to argue when it’s laid out in plain facts."

On November 7, 2016, Alaeddin tweeted: “Israel, the problem, exists. To eliminate the problem, we have to acknowledge its existence. When we do, we'll better be able to fix it."

On December 28, 2016, Alaeddin tweeted: “But the terrorist is Israel. It fits the definition perfectly. More than anyone Israel uses ‘violence and intimidation for political aims’"

On August 20, 2014, Alaeddin tweeted: “@Naderr420 @queensous @coleeyolee @HoussamMazraani a Jewish state is inherently racist."

On July 22, 2014, Alaeddin tweeted: “Israel can't find any evidence to justify its genocide, so they resort to drawing pictures of what they want you to believe."

On January 15, 2014, Alaeddin tweeted: “Saying Israel is not an apartheid state because it treats some Arabs well is like saying you're not racist because you have a black friend."

On May 8, 2013, Alaeddin tweeted: “Israel is an apartheid colonial-settler state. The occupation of Palestine is not religious. Religion is being exploited by the occupiers."

Spreading Propaganda

On June 22, 2016, Alaeddin tweeted: “Tell me again what argument the Zionists have when the father of Israel himself admitted occupation." The tweet included fabricated, partial, distorted and decontextualized quotes — attributed to Israeli and Zionist leaders.

On September 28, 2015, Alaeddin tweeted: “Fifteen years ago, Mohammad Durrah was murdered by the Zionist IDF while he was trying to protect his son." Alaeddin added: “The shooting was indiscriminate towards unarmed civilians. This is Israel. A terrorist 'country' discriminating and murdering Palestinians."

The Al-Durah hoax is an iconic piece of anti-Israel propaganda, fabricated on September 30, 2000 at the start of the Second Intifada by a France 2 reporter.


On July 14, 2014, Alaeddin tweeted: “A basic history of the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians Israel and Palestine, an animated introduction." The tweet linked to a misleading video — produced by Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) — that accused Israel of “Institutionalized discrimination" against non-Jews.

The video also claimed that Israeli Arabs are second class citizens of Israel and misrepresented Israeli security policies as discriminatory and unjust.

The film portrayed Israel as an aggressive, oppressive force that can be influenced only through pressure. Further, the film rejected peace talks as a “theater to cover a land grab." The film ended with a deceptive call for people to join the BDS movement — disguising the movement’s anti-Semitic core and its ultimate goal of destroying Israel.

BDS

The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement was founded by Omar Barghouti in 2005 as an allegedly “Palestinian-led movement" to challenge “international support for Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism."

In 2015, Barghouti was quoted saying that “BDS aims to turn Israel into a pariah state, as South Africa once was, and to isolate its regime of oppression in order to achieve our UN-stipulated rights."

The dominant organization in the BDS Movement is the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions Campaign National Committee (BNC), founded by Barghouti in 2007, during the First Palestinian Conference for the Boycott of Israel.

The movement has been linked to numerous terrorist organizations and received a public endorsement from Hamas.

BDS initiatives include calling on institutions and individuals to divest from Israeli-affiliated companies, promoting academic and cultural boycotts of Israel and anti-Israel rallies and protests.

The movement’s most notable achievement has been the infiltration of university campuses through lobbying for “BDS resolutions." In these cases, student governments, backed by anti-Israel affiliates, have proposed resolutions on some form of boycott of — or divestment from — Israel and Israeli-affiliated entities.

These boycott resolutions, although non-binding, have been passed by student governments on numerous North American campuses.

BDS activity is often aggressive and disruptive. It has been noted that universities that pass BDS resolutions see a marked increase in anti-Semitic incidents on campus. In 2013, when the student government of the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) debated a BDS resolution, reports emerged of violent threats and the spitting on a student wearing a Star of David necklace.
