The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has written an open letter to over 200 colleges and universities, asking them to investigate campus chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) for allegedly supporting Hamas. The ADL claims that many SJP chapters have endorsed Hamas' attack on Israel and that any financial support given to Hamas could violate laws against supporting terrorist groups. However, the letter does not provide evidence of SJP's material or financial support for Hamas. SJP denies these claims and argues that independent protests and organizing in support of Palestinian rights do not constitute support for terrorism. The ADL alleges that SJP chapters are celebrating terrorism and endorsing Hamas' actions. The ADL has called on campuses to update their codes of conduct to prohibit support for terrorism, warning that failure to do so could lead to an environment of discrimination against Jewish students. Since the attacks in Israel, US college campuses have become a battleground for the conflict between Hamas and Israel, with some pro-Palestinian student groups blaming Israel for Hamas' attack. The controversy has led to donor exodus, tension on campuses, removal of instructors, and even a doxxing truck displaying the names and photos of students who signed a statement blaming Israel. The mobile billboard truck arrived outside Columbia University during a pro-Palestinian protest.
