Right-Wing Group Targets University Of Chicago Students

A conservative group is targeting students at the University of Chicago for their involvement in Palestinian rights activities. 

Last week, flyers were posted on campus listing—by name—some student members of a group called Students for Justice in Palestine. 

It claimed that the organization supports Hamas terrorists. 

The flyers were made by an organization called the David Horowitz Freedom Center, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has labelled as anti-Muslim and anti-Immigrant. 

The University of Chicago told WBEZ that it denounces the flyers and that its Dean of Students has offered to meet one-on-one with the students who were targeted.
