Rabab Abdulhadi, the director of San Francisco State University (SFSU)’s Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diaspora Initiative (AMED) — and a founding member of the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel — is feeling the heat.
The Lawfare Project is filing a lawsuit — in which Abdulhadi is named — against SFSU, alleging “a long and extensive history of cultivating anti-Semitism and overt discrimination against Jewish students” at the school.
At the same time, the joint Middle East Forum/Campus Watch (MEF/CW) campaign to end SFSU’s Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with a terror-promoting Palestinian university is also moving forward. That MOU was brokered by Abdulhadi.
