Palestine Awareness Week Commences at SDSU

Gabriella Hoffman is a sophomore at UC-San Diego who also balances life as a conservative activist. She’s majoring in Political Science and minoring in History. Unlike many out there today, Gabriella attributes her parents- Lithuanian immigrants- to her conservative upbringing. Her parents have a remarkable insight into conservatism because they fled the evil empire as political refugees in 1985 and entered the U.S. legally in 1986. Since age 9, she has watched Fox News and has been exposed to liberal injustices from early on. As a result, she is quite the firecracker in defending her conservative beliefs, and doesn’t hesitate to impart the corresponding message to friends and foes alike. Hoffman brought David Horowitz to campus May 2010, where he successfully highlighted the dangers involved in radical Islam with efforts like “Apartheid Week” and comments made by those proponents like Jumanah Albarhi. The event made national headlines, with mentions on Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity. She is one of the foremost conservative activists at UC-San Diego, having interned with Young America's Foundation at the Reagan Ranch Center. Hoffman also blogs for San Diego Rostra, blogs for David Horowitz’s NewsReal Blog, is Advertising Manager for UCSD's conservative paper-The California Review, and maintains her own blog: gabriellahoffman.wordpress.com.

Palestine Awareness Week (famously known as “Israel Apartheid Week” here at UCSD) at San Diego State University has commenced. This event will take place from March 1st-11th, 2011.

That means more anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, and anti-American sentiment on this college campus and others nationwide.

Details about this week can be found on the SDSU SJP Facebook event and are elaborated below:
