Pro-Hijacking, Pro-Terrorism

T-shirt contradicts J Street motto



A member of J Street's student organization, J Street U, wore a t-shirt endorsing terrorism and airplane hijacking to a J Street event at Washington University in St. Louis.

The J Street U member posted a picture of himself to Facebook wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with a picture of a notorious Palestinian airplane hijacker Leila Khaled, who was convicted of participation in two plane hijackings, and the slogan "resistance is not terrorism," according to an initial report by Brandeis undergraduate Daniel Mael for the website TruthRevolt.

Palestinian terrorists and their western supporters, now including members of J Street U, employ the phrase in the hope of counteracting the commonly held belief that murdering Israeli men, women, and children in suicide bombings and shootings constitutes terrorism.

A spokeswoman for J Street did not respond to a Washington Free Beacon request for comment on the matter.
