The student government committee at the University of California, Berkeley, on Monday voted down a resolution condemning a display by a pro-Palestinian student group.

The Associated Students of the University of California Senate’s University and External Affairs Committee vetoed 4-1 the resolution presented by a Jewish student senator, Milton Zerman.
The display includes photos of what Bears for Palestine called “Palestinian leaders” Fatima Bernawi, Rasmea Odeh and Leila Khaled, who all were convicted of terror attacks in Israel.
Fatima Bernawi-tried to bomb a Cinema in West Jerusalem in 1967, but the bomb didn't go off.

Rasmea Odeh-killed 21-year-old Leon Kanner of Netanya and 22-year-old Eddie Joffe of a Tel Aviv suburb, on February 21, 1969. The two were killed by a bomb that was placed in a crowded Jerusalem SuperSol supermarket which the two students stopped in at to buy groceries for a field trip. The same bomb wounded nine others. Also committed immigration fraud to get into the US.

Leila Khaled-Highjacked 2 planes in 1969 and 1970.

Do they get federal funds? If they do those should be gone now.

It's a non-issue. If the student government wats to display some che guevara flags in their office, they can do that, since it's university politics (i.e. not to be taken seriously).

Heck, when I was in Uni, there were flags for the mapuche people, signs by the extreme right and posters by the fpmr (some communist ultra leftist group in Chile) all in the same cafeteria. No one took them seriously, as things are quite different outside of uni.
