    Hi, Yasmin, thanks for your interest in USC-SJP. I’ve just posted the Middle East Week schedule on the front page of this site, and will also email you a copy. If you’d like to consistently get our updates, please sign up for our yahoogroup (click the link above).

    Your events for Middle East Awareness Week were quite informative as well as entertaining.

    I also have a recommendation for a web site to add to your blogroll. It is called “Palestinian Mothers” The website owner, poet Iqbal Tamimi, is particulary interested in hearing from those in the states.

    Keep up the great work.

  6. More power to you! Great site and it’s good to see something like this in my “backyard.” 🙂 Now, if only all universities could follow suit!

    GREAT site you guys! I am glad to see an organisation such as this on campus at a university here in the states. I am sure there are more, but have not researched them, YET!. TRUTH must be told about the happenings in Gaza and the West Bank. I have looked through your list of blogs and links, and a good one to add I think might be ifamericansknewdotorg. Its focus is on Israel from a critical perspective, but has very accurate statistics on this conflict, especially the second Entifada. Also please google ‘Breaking the Silence’ a group of israeli soldiers facing their consciences of their actions in the IDF. I am sure you there are aware of them. A great site for education of Americans, and to help them see where their tax dollars are going. Keep up the good work!

    How long have you all been supporters of terror in buses, markets, cinemas, restaurants, universities, pizzerias and Passover dinners?

    Your “USCSJP@YAHOO.COM” address doesn’t work. Is there another way to get in touch with the chapter, or with Omar, Justin, Meher, or Andrea?

    I’m writing because I’m a law student compiling a national contact list of campus SJPs and other divestment and Palestinian rights groups so that we can all be better in touch, exchange information, etc. I wanted to ask if you might be interested in representing USC’s SJP on a national contact list. “representing” would basically mean being listed on a national contact list so that folks from other groups around the country could get in touch with you, and perhaps
    joining a google group where information/resources could be shared/stored.

    If not, perhaps others at USC’s SJP, or at USC generally, might be interested?

    Of course I’d be grateful if you’d put me in touch in the event you might happen to know those who might be.

    Please contact me by email or at (510)926-1130

      Like Omar, I’d like a way to contact the SJP. I’m part of a new SJP group and we’d love advice, etc. Also, in the LA area, so would like to know if there are any events going on post-flotilla. Feel free to e-mail me. Thanks!

    This is the site for those who support terror in markets, buses, cinemas, pizzerias, universities, airports and Passover dinners.
