Rabab Abdulhadi

The Middle East Forum's petition to end San Francisco State University (SFSU)'s memorandum of understanding (MOU) with An-Najah University in the West Bank continues to garner a lot of interest, including coverage from SFSU's student newspaper, Golden Gate Xpress, and San Francisco's CBS affiliate.


Cinnamon Stillwell, the West Coast representative for Campus Watch, a project of the Middle East Forum that reviews and critiques Middle East studies in North America, authored the series of articles on the SFSU/MOU investigation that inspired our petition.

She's also a graduate of SFSU and a former columnist for SFGate, the online arm of the San Francisco Chronicle, for whom she wrote about her own encounters with anti-Semitism and intolerance as an SFSU student.

To catch up on Stillwell's articles highlighting SFSU's MOU with An-Najah, as well as her coverage of Rabab Abdulhadi, director of SFSU's Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diaspora Initiative and the MOU's architect, follow the links below:


Please sign the petition and let SFSU President Leslie Wong know that SFSU's partnership with a university that promotes terrorism is outrageous and unacceptable.

Pass it on!
