Cliff Hanley believes 9/11 is a Jewish conspiracy; Sammi Ibrahem supports the Holocaust and refers to the Nazis as "martyrs"; Ellie Merton supports Holocaust denial; and Gill Kaffash believes the Holocaust is a lie.
What do these people have in common? They have all chaired or held other prominent positions in the UK-based Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC).
The PSC claims to campaign for "peace and justice for the Palestinians," but as one can see from statements made by a variety of leaders in the organization, the PSC is nothing more than a breading ground for anti-Semitic hate speech.
The group displays anti-Semitic rhetoric throughout its many branches and it is not afraid to hide it, "Exposing the PSC" - an organization dedicated to exposing the hate speech of the PSC - proves.
The Scottish chapter, for example, offers its members a free copy of "The Invention of the Jewish People" and openly supported a Scottish man who racially abused a Jewish student, Exposing the PSC reveals.
The PSC also has numerous links to neo-Nazi and other far-right parties throughout the UK. For example, Edinburgh PSC Chair Mike Napier cited a variety of neo-Nazi Websites while trying to clear a Palestinian terrorist of murdering eight Jewish students in Jerusalem in 2008. Furthermore, Scottish PSC member John Wight connected the Scottish chapter to the "Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust," which provides a forum for anti-Semites to deny the Holocaust.
Moreover, outspoken PSC member Pippa Bartolotti supports the SSNP - the Syrian neo-Nazi party responsible for multiple deadly terrorist attacks in Europe. See a picture of her proudly waving the SSNP's flag below. Next to her is a picture of the armed terrorist she supports.
Exposing the PSC consists of Jewish and Muslim students who expose the lies and hatred of the group. Its goal is to defeat this hatred and "restore the human rights narrative to its rightful place," according to Arutz Sheva News.
"It’s about telling the truth and shattering the illusion that groups such as the PSC care one bit about human rights," a co-founder of Exposing the PSC told Arutz Sheva News. "They don’t. For them, the language of human rights is a tool to further an anti-Jewish agenda. Worst of all, the PSC ruins the efforts of those Palestinians who are actually striving for peace, [by representing] the Palestinian position as one of absolutist support for terror, hatred, and ignorance."
Exposing the PSC also uncovers the homophobia present in the Palestine Solidarity Campaign. Many members of the organization hold extreme homophobic views, and the group has even partnered with speakers who believe homosexuality is a crime.
The PSC says it is "in support of international law and human rights & against all racism." But this cannot be true, as the group holds racist views toward the Jewish people as well as the Gay community.
"You can’t claim to be 'for peace, justice and human rights and against all racism' on the one hand, and then go off and cavort with neo-Nazis, religious fundamentalists, and other out-and-out anti-Semites on the other," the same co-founder told Arutz Sheva News.
The PSC even called for murdering the Jews at a rally in 2011. Five minutes and 20 seconds into the video of the rally below, protesters scream, "Khaybar, Khaybar al-Yahud!" This Arabic phrase refers to the 7th century slaughter of Jews by Mohammed and his followers.
Exposing the PSC appeals to genuine supporters of human rights to stay away from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
"The PSC’s bogus humanitarian agenda is simply a tactic to draw in supporters and claim legitimacy in the eyes of the general public," the PSC spokesperson told Arutz Sheva News. "Actions speak louder than words, and this initiative exposes the true anti-Semitic, racist, extremist face of the PSC for all to see. Anyone who genuinely cares about human rights should keep well away from them."
