Hatem Bazian is the chairman of American Muslims for Palestine and founder of Students for Justice in Palestine.
He is also a professor at the University of California-Berkeley's Department of Near Eastern and Ethnic Studies and a founder and board member of Zaytuna College.
Bazian was recorded in 2004 praising the "intifada in Iraq," which targeted U.S. soldiers, and the "intifada in Palestine" and urging Muslim-Americans to begin an "intifada in this country that change[s] fundamentally the political dynamics in here." At least five AMP officials previously served with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood's pro-Hamas Palestine Committee.
Bazian taught students that the Islamists' opponents and critics of Islam generally are puppets of a war-seeking, Zionist conspiracy to victimize Muslims that has succeeded in seizing the United States' major institutions. This conspiracy theory—essentially a modernized version of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion—is used to silence adversaries through demonization.
In November 2017, Bazian was criticized for retweeting blatantly anti-Semitic photos mocking Jews as entitled people who "kill, rape, smuggle organs & steal the land of Palestinians." Another photo placed a yarmulke on top of North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un's head with a caption of "NOW MY NUKES ARE LEGAL."

Additionally, Suleiman has a history of homophobic and sexist remarks.
