SFSU Student Continued Posting Violent Threats Against IDF, Jews

A violence-glorifying student who has made repeated graphic threats against Israelis and pro-Israel Americans is finally gone from SFSU, but is presumably still in San Francisco, along with his knives.

Esparza focused primarily on whether the alleged criminal acts had been committed within the SFPD’s jurisdiction. But if Hammad is still in San Francisco, and if he is in possession of the knives he displayed in some of his public posts, Hammad may very well pose a serious threat to the safety of individuals and organizations in the Bay area.

The director of communications for the San Francisco District Attorney’s office, Alex Bastian, said he was unaware of the delivery, by email and hand delivery, of the materials regarding Mohamad Hammad.

Officer Esparza asked that anyone with information regarding violent threats allegedly made by Mohammad Hammad should contact the San Francisco Police Department at 415.575.4444, or should text the department by dialing TIP411, and put “SFPD” at the start of the message.

The AMCHA Initiative began monitoring GUPS in November, after the organization hosted an all-day celebration commemorating the 6th anniversary of the Edward Said mural. At that event, students were handed stencils with which to make signs that said, “MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS KILLED COLONIZERS,” a reference to the killing of Jews.

Although SFSU President Wong publicly condemned the GUPS stencils glorifying violence, he had made no further public statements on the matter until one was provided to The Jewish Press, through Robert Nava, in response to our inquiry on Feb. 18.

  1. He should be deported. Where, I don't know, but this guy has got to go.

  2. Walter Richards says:

    he no longer is at the school so it can do nothing.

    The quote the mentioned comes close but doesn't quite cross the line
    of Free Speech. He doesn't issue a direct immediate threat against anyone. He says he admires killers. Thiis is repulsive but protected
    speech. The proper response is to use this quote and the fact that
    he was once made the president of SFSU’s General Union of Palestine Students (GUPS) to show just how evil and unpeacsful these so called palestinians are

  3. why is the organization not banned? rhetorical question.

  4. Les Le Gear says:

    Who allowed the savage into the US? The savage should be sent back to the sh*thole arab country he came from, or should be incarcerated for life in prison.

  5. That sword in the photo is a replica of the Master Sword from the Legend of Zelda game series. The sword is a weapon of good, used only to defeat and banish evil from the world. Until now, I never would have thought a person filled with such hate could enjoy the Zelda franchise, because it does not promote any such thing or violence against other humans for that matter (you only fight monsters and Ganon, the man from the desert who wants to rule the world in darkness).

    Interesting thing about the story of Zelda:Majora's Mask was that in that game, Link awakes and finds out that the moon itself is about to crash into the world, destroying all life upon the earth. In the game, this boy named Link has three days to prevent the impending doom. In reality, our Link hasn't awoken yet, and the shadow of the moon gets closer each day.

    Zelda and Link, wake up. Ganon and the moon are approaching.

  6. This looks more serious than simple Jew hatred. People who put up violent & disgusting visual images sometimes eventually wind up standing in front of movie theaters in Colorado & aimlessly shooting at the audience.

  7. If he is as crazy as he seems, he can be Baker acted at the first indication of a real threat.

  8. His age is appropriate for the onset of schizophrenia. Vital is his being watched, especially by his family & Imam. An acquaintance's cousin, who was not watched, eventually stabbed his parents to death with a butcher knife.

  9. John Pacella says:

    enjoyed the exchange on WAPO. lenomdepume.
