It has come to our attention that Azka Fayyaz, a member of the U.C. Davis’ student senate, posted on her Facebook page the following:

“Hamas & Shariah law have taken over UC Davis.  Brb [be right back] crying over the resilience [sic]”

Ms. Fayyaz then posted:

“If a movement is not controversial, if no one is mad, it’s not strong enough & it’s not worth the fight.  Israel will fall insha’Allah”

 BDS1

According to the University of California Policy Code 102.24 [attached], Ms. Fayyaz’s postings is prohibited conduct:

Conduct, where the actor means to communicate a serious expression of intent to terrorize, or acts in reckless disregard of the risk of terrorizing, one or more University students, faculty, or staff. ‘Terrorize’ means to cause a reasonable person to fear bodily harm or death, perpetrated by the actor or those acting under his/her control. ‘Reckless disregard’ means consciously disregarding a substantial risk. This section applies without regard to whether the conduct is motivated by race, ethnicity, personal animosity, or other reasons. This section does not apply to conduct that constitutes the lawful defense of oneself, of another, or of property.” (emphasis added; see attached)

Hamas is listed on the US State Department’s list of terror organizations. (See below).

Comments by a student government leader invoking “Sharia law” and “Hamas” along with the context that “Israel will fall” pretty much means a threat to kill Jews.

We believe that Ms. Fayyaz’s conduct is grounds for expulsion from U.C. Davis and warrants possible criminal charges.

As a California nonprofit corporation made up of California tax payers, we demand an in-depth investigation into these matters and a detailed response to our demands.

Sincerely,
The Israel Group
