OverviewIslam Allan is a 2016 graduate of the College of Staten Island (CSI), part of the City University of New York (CUNY), with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. She works as a makeup artist at Sephora.
Allan was the Vice President of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at CSI (SJP CSI) and is a member of New York City SJP (NYC SJP). She was also a member of the Muslim Students Association (MSA).
Propagating Blood Libels to Demonize Israel
At least one Palestinian mayor admitted in August 2016 that his constituents have regularly diverted and stolen water in the West Bank - but said “as a mayor, I do not have the tools to monitor them." Israel provides more than twice the water it agreed to provide under the Oslo accords.
On September 21, 2015, Allan alleged on Twitter — fraudulently— that Israel committed “genocide" against Palestinians in Gaza.
On November 12, 2015, Allan tweeted the — equally fraudulent and anti-Semitic — claim that Israel “was FOUNDED OFF THE GENOCIDE OF THE PALESTINIANS."
Promoting Anti-Americanism to Excuse Mass Murder
On December 30, 2015 Islam retweeted her sister Salsabeel Allan’s tweet:
" ‘Make America great again. When the f**k were we ever great? When we exterminated natives? Raped & enslaved blacks? KKK? Abu Ghraib? When?’ "
On December 29, 2015 Allan posted a tweet likening the tragic shooting of Tamir Rice (a Black 12 year-old who was shot and killed by Cleveland police in October 2015 — as he reached toward a realistic-looking pellet gun in his waistband) to the lynching of Emmett Till (a Black 14 year-old who was murdered by vigilantes in Mississippi in 1955 after reportedly flirting with a white woman.)
Allan commented: “Rest in peace, angels. And while you rest, we'll smash the white supremacist state that did this to you."
Allan also parroted her sister’s claim that the “U.S. creates terrorism outside to distract us from the terrorism they've created within."
Dressing Anti-Semitism as Anti-Zionism
On December 11, 2015 Allan blamed “Zionists" and “Zionism" for causing the Syrian refugee crisis - and slammed Canadian Premier Justin Trudeau’s efforts to assist the refugees, because Trudeau had also spoken out against the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS). According to the U.S. State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism, blaming “Zionists" for larger societal problems and political tensions is an unequivocal act of anti-Semitism.
Allan has also approvingly retweeted tweets likening Israel to the murderous Islamic State (ISIS). On June 14, 2016, Allan shared a Facebook post claiming that Israel’s Prime Minister is “behind ISIS."
Supporting Suicide Bomber-Recruiter Mohammad Allan
Allan is a member of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), a terror group “whose objective is the destruction of the State of Israel and the establishment of a sovereign, Islamic Palestinian state." PIJ is backed by Iran and has killed dozens of Israelis in suicide bombings and other attacks.
Allan was first jailed by Israel in 2006 for trying to recruit a suicide bomber to carry out an attack in Israel. He was detained in 2015 for similar reasons.
Mohammed was first jailed by Israel in 2006 for trying to recruit a suicide bomber to carry out an attack in Israel. The New York Times cited the former head of Israel’s domestic security, who suggested that Mr. Allan was detained in 2015 for similar reasons. Islam Allan, in conjunction with SJP, organized a rally outside the United Nations. She gave a speech demanding Mohammed Allan’s immediate release, saying “he is making all of us so proud."
On August 18, 2015, Islam’s father, Ziad Allan, gave an impassioned speech condemning the United States and Israel, claiming: “Israel is the only state on Earth that the laws of humanity does not [sic.] apply to, whatsoever."
On August 19, 2015 The Israeli High Court ordered Mohammed Allan’s release from detention, due to his deteriorating medical condition. A lawyer for Allan told Reuters that Allan had ended his 65-day hunger strike following the High Court ruling. That same day, the Allan family held an inflammatory, anti-Israel protest in Brooklyn, New York. Allan was released from Israeli custody in early November, 2015.
In October 2015, Islamic Jihad released a video threatening to renew suicide bombings against Israelis.
Inciting Violence Against Israeli Jews
So-called “Days of Rage" in October of 2015 — heralded by the terror group Hamas as the advent of a new Intifada — directly resulted in the deaths of Israeli civilians by shootings, stabbings and car rammings.
Allan and other protesters at the rally alternately screamed slogans, such as “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free", “Long Live the Intifada! Intifada! Intifada!" and “Settler settler go back home, Palestine is ours alone!"
“From the river to the Sea, Palestine will be free" is a chant calling to dismantle the State of Israel. It has also been employed by Hamas leader Khaled Mashal to call for the replacement of Israel with an Islamic state.
October 2015 saw an upsurge in violence across Israel incited by Palestinian political and religious leaders. The wave of stabbings — known as the “Knife Intifada" — saw young Palestinians throughout the country stabbing and attempting to stab Israeli civilians.
The video depicted Israel as having unfairly arrested “Palestinian clown" Mohammed Abu Sakha — whom it described merely as “working with disabled kids" for his activity and membership in the terror group PFLP. Abu Sakha was arrested in December of 2015.
The PFLP — designated a terrorist organization by the United States, Canada, Israel, the European Union, the Gulf Cooperation Council and Australia — pioneered aircraft hijackings to draw attention to their movement’s demands, most notably with the capture of an Air France plane in 1976.
The hijackers flew the plane to Entebbe, Uganda, where they separated nearly 100 Jewish passengers from the others and threatened to execute one Jew per hour. Israel, however, launched a successful commando raid to rescue the hostages.
The PFLP also claimed “credit" for the November 18, 2014 Har Nof Synagogue massacre — where PFLP operatives murdered six people with a gun, axes and a butcher knife during morning prayers. PFLP Gaza leader Hani Thawbta stated: “We declare full responsibility of the PFLP for the execution of this heroic operation..."
NYC SJP - Blaming Zionists for Tuition Hikes
On November 12, 2015, NYC SJP members participated in the Million Student March, a national movement protesting the cost of college tuition and debt. When NYC SJP announced its participation, it released a statement blaming the “Zionist administration" for the tuition hikes.
According to the U.S. State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism, blaming “Zionists" for larger societal problems and political tensions is an unequivocal act of anti-Semitism.
Video footage from the CUNY march show students chanting “Long live the intifada," and “Zionist’s out of CUNY."
In August 2015, Allan participated in a YouTube video (2:45) that was used to raise funds for NYC SJP to travel to San Diego State University for the National SJP conference, which took place in October, 2015.
NYC SJP - Exploiting Feminism to Glorify Terrorism
On March 5, 2016, NYC SJP shared an event and blog post on Facebook to “commemorate International Working Women’s Day as an inseparable aspect of the fight for Palestinian liberation."
NYC SJP’s blog post announcing the event spread the blood libels that "Israel is a state that was built on the murder and rape of Palestinian women" and that “the state forces women to give birth at checkpoints, where more than half of the babies died as a result."
The event description, excerpted from the blog post, slammed Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir for "colonizing Palestinian land through zionist Ideology", and praised International hijacker Leila Khaled for “committing her life to be a freedom fighter in the struggle for Palestinian liberation."
In a 2014 interview, Khaled opined that the Palestinian second intifada failed because it was not violent enough.
Khalida Jarrar is a senior member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terror organization. In 2015, an Israeli military court sentenced Jarrar to 15 months in prison for calling to kidnap Israeli soldiers. Israel arrested her again in 2017 “on suspicion of involvement with terrorist activities and violent public disturbances."
Odeh was a key military operative with the terrorist group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). In 1969, Odeh masterminded a PFLP bombing that killed two college students in a Jerusalem supermarket. Odeh also attempted to bomb the British consulate.
Odeh confessed, in a highly detailed account, the day following her arrest. In a 2004 documentary, one of Odeh’s co-conspirators directly implicated her as the mastermind.
In 1970, an Israeli court tried and convicted Odeh for her involvement in both bombings and sentenced her to life imprisonment. However, Odeh was released 10 years later, in a prisoner swap and emigrated to the United States.
On November 10, 2014, a Michigan federal jury convicted Odeh for immigration fraud because she failed to disclose her prior conviction and life sentence on her immigration application. On March 12, 2015, she was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
In 2017, after an appeal and a lengthy court battle, Odeh admitted to immigration fraud, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship and deported to Jordan.
The blog post concluded "Smash the Patriarchy! Smash the Settler Zionist State! Free Palestine, and Free Women EVERYWHERE!"
NYC SJP - Praised by a Terrorist Organization
On October 9, 2015, the Progressive Student Labor Front (PSLF) in Gaza — an organization politically linked to the PLFP — issued a statement via the PFLP website showing solidarity with their “comrades," NYC SJP.
The statement praised NYC SJP for leading “a march through the streets of New York calling for ‘Intifada’ and the liberation of Palestine…" The statement went on to say: " We urge the development and escalation of BDS campaigns at an international level just as we urge the escalation of resistance in all forms and all means here in Palestine ...." and ended with an affirmation that the PSLF is “proud to call them [NYC SJP]...comrades in the struggle for the liberation of Palestine."
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."
The MSA was established by members of the Muslim Brotherhood in January 1963 at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, with the goal of "spreading Islam as students in North America." A 2004 FBI investigation uncovered an internal Muslim Brotherhood document in which a brotherhood leader identified the MSA as "one of our organizations."
With nearly 600 chapters located in the United States and Canada, the MSA is the most visible and influential Islamic student organization in North America, boasting conferences, special events, publications, websites and other activities.
The organization includes a number of previous chapter presidents with explicit links to terrorist groups. Included are al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki (Colorado State University), Somali al-Shabaab militant leader Omar Shafik Hammami (University of South Alabama) and Pakistani Taliban recruiter Ramy Zamzam of the MSA's Washington, D.C. council.
Local MSA chapters regularly invite controversial speakers to their campuses. At a 2003 MSA event sponsored by Al-Talib, the MSA-founded Muslim student newspaper, guest speaker Imam Abdul-Alim Musa said, "When you fight [the U.S.] you are fighting someone that is superior in criminality and Nazism ... the American criminalizer is the most skillful oppressor the world has ever known..."
