New York University Students for Justice in Palestine (NYU SJP) posted a photo of pro-Israel students on April 17 – the same day the SJP chapter received an award from the university – and called the students racist.

NYU SJP’s initial post showed the faces of members of Realize Israel, a pro-Israel student group at NYU, with a caption that read, “Thumbs up if you’re a racist!”

They later took the aforementioned post down and uploaded the same photo but covered up the faces of the Realize Israel members with a caption that reads, “Thumbs Up If You’re a Racist: they intimidated to sue us because they don’t like getting called out version!”

NYU SJP and the university did not respond to the Journal’s requests for comment.

A member of NYU SJP was arrested in April 2018 on charges of assault after he could be seen ripping a microphone out of the hands of a pro-Israel student during a Yom Haatzmut rally. NYU SJP received the President’s Service Award on April 17, an award that is “given to students or student organizations that have had an extraordinary and positive impact on the University community, including achievements within schools and departments, the University at large, local neighborhoods, and NYU’s presence in the world,” according to the university’s website.
