Ahmed Yasin was the founder of Hamas and ordered the murders of 377 people among whom there were 38 Amrican citizens. He was killed by the Israel Defense Forces. Al Awda San Diego condemned his being killed. This is archived on their website:
Students for Justice in Palestine at San Diego State U (listed as sponsors of the event in San Diego) has a photo of Palestinian terrorist Leila Khaled on their facebook page. She is living in Syria at this time. Go here:

SJP San Diego State is sponsor of the Al Awda event at La Mesa Center. See 6th entry down:
Go down three more entries next and see fund raising for Viva Palestina and George Galloway by the same sponsoring group of Al Awda and SJP SDU. I provided proof in an earlier blog entry below that Galloway and Al Awda brought money to Hamas with Viva Palestina last week not as humanitarian aid but as aid to the Hamas terror infrastructure.
Raising money for terrorist fronts like PCRF:
Al Awda lists PCRF (Palestine Childrens Relief Fund) as one of its affiliates and for whom they will raise money at the event in La Mesa (according to their websites):
The list can go on and on. This event is a fund raising event for terrorism and a planning session on how to attack Jews. They may have some Jewish radicals fronting for them, but they do not belong in a taxpayer-supported faciltiy in your town.

Here is more about the Hamas's Charter that Al Awda supports:
One of the most ominous aspects of the Charter however, is this Hadith
Moreover, if the links have been distant from each other and if
obstacles, placed by those who are the lackeys of Zionism in the way
of the fighters obstructed the continuation of the struggle, the
Islamic Resistance Movement aspires to the realisation of Allah's
promise, no matter how long that should take. The Prophet, Allah
bless him and grant him salvation, has said:
"The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight
the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind
stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O
Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the
Gharkad tree, would not do that because it is one of the trees
of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim).
The implication is clear: Allah promised that the Jews will be murdered, and the Hamas "aspires to the realisation of Allah's promise, no matter how long that should take." This is what they mean by "The Return." They parade a few radicals of marginal Jewish ancestry among them as proof they are not anti-Semitic, but those individuals are usually more radically anti-Semitic than non-Jewish anti-Semites.
Abe Greenhouse is one of them and may be at the event.
