Taxpayers money was recently used by a delegation of California academics and one labor activist to pay for a unity meeting with convicted terrorists.

The trip was billed as a “political solidarity tour” and is protested by some organizations because of the use of taxpayer money under the false pretense of research even though some key details about the trip were omitted that would bring it under questions about its purpose.

The unity meeting was led by San Francisco State University professor Rabab Abdulah who originally planned to present a paper at an American University in Lebanon’s Center for American Studies and Research conference but her name was dropped from it. She went ahead with her unity meeting with the terrorist anyway that then cost SFSU $7000 for her travel expenses.

The terrorists included:

  • Leila Khaled who was convicted of hijacking and is a member of the terrorist organization Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
  • Sheikh Raed Salah who is the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement that funds the terrorist movement Hamas.

According to CampusReform, this was not a “research” effort by the the SFSU professors but rather after a search of California public records inquiry revealed the political nature of the trip.

The conclusion by those protesting the professors meeting with terrorists maintain that the true nature of the unity meeting was omitted in order to obtain taxpayer funds to pay for it.
