Susan Abulhawa

Susan Abulhawa is an American author, activist, and staunch antisemite pushing the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Abulhawa spreads vile conspiracy theories about Jews harvesting Palestinian organs and has horrifically referred to an American Israeli terror victim as “human garbage”.

Susan Abulhawa calls for the violent eradication of Israel, spreads antisemitic tropes and anti-Zionist libel against the Jews, and even threatens world leaders with slanderous lies and comparisons.

On February 28, in light of the murder of Elan Ganeles, a dual US Israeli citizen by a Palestinian terrorist, Abulhawa called him a “privileged white man” who “violently colonized another people” through “robbing & oppressing.” She asked why Jews in New York would be upset over this “human garbage.”

In February, Abulhawa was invited to speak at Adelaide Writers’ Week in Australia. Abulhawa was under much scrutiny for her 2022 comparisons of Jewish Ukrainian President Zelenskyy as a “Nazi-promoting Zionist” and claimed he was trying to plunge the world into WWIII. This led to three Ukrainian authors withdrawing from the event.

Abulhawa also parades the false conspiracy trope that Israelis want to conquer Palestinians and “take over the world.” She has even gone as far as to drop “false flag” allegations against Israel and claims Jews bomb their synagogues in order to blame Palestinians and “ethnically cleanse” them from the area.

In Abulhawa’s worldview, there is no room for Jews and Palestinians to exist in the land together in peace. Multiple times she refers to Israelis as “Nazis” and “demons” and wants Israel to be “destroyed and dismantled”.

In 2017, Abulhawa discovered she was 6% Jewish and joked if she was qualified for Holocaust restitution. Yet, she remains obsessed with denying the horrors of the Holocaust and equates Israel’s treatment of Palestinians to genocide, tweeting “Zionism is terrorism is Nazism is antisemitism.”

This month, Susan Abulhawa dialed up her vileness. Her Twitter account was permanently banned after she stated “the world will be a better place when Israel is wiped off the map…the end of that anachronistic colonial experiment is near.” Twitter stated her account was banned for breaking the “hateful conduct” rule and she was banned from creating new accounts going forward.

Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination and drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis is deemed antisemitic by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) definition of antisemitism.
