From Rutgers Alumni Against Terrorism

You have probably already heard that the Palestinian Solidarity Movement, a hate-group that supports and protects terrorists, and seeks to destroy Israel "by any means necessary," has scheduled its National Conference for October 10-12 on the Rutgers Campus.

When a great University lends its campus to any group, it inevitably lends also some part of its prestige.

For this very reason, universities have long refused to invite onto our campuses groups that openly espouse the murder of individuals who are hated because of their race, religion, or sexual orientation. Nor should we invite a group that has openly endorsed the murder by terror bombing of a peaceful, civilian population.

The Solidarity Movement may have a constitutional right to speak in favor of terrorism, but Rutgers has no obligation to allow them to use our campus for this purpose.

If you are a Rutgers grad, please join us in asking President McCormick to forbid the use of the campus by the Palestinian Solidarity Movement by signing the petition at: www.petitiononline.com/yo16ni.

If you are a resident of New Jersey, please join us in demanding that Gobernor McGreevey refuse to allow a terrorist-support group to meet on the Rutgers campus by signing the petition which can be found at either www.cjcamcha.org or www.petitiononline.com/amcha703.

Wherever you live, please write to Governor McGreevey and demand that he refuse to allow this terrorism-support Movement to meet on the Rutgers campus. http://www.state.nj.us/governor/govmail.html
