Known race agitator and terrorist supporter Malia Bouattia has been voted president of the National Union of Students. Bouattia infamously blocked a motion condemning ISIS claiming it was Islamophobic to do so. The extremist who now has even more influence over hundreds of thousands students is a prominent activist for communist umbrella groups such as Unite Against Fascism and well known for her hatred of white and Jewish people.
Expect to see much more controversy from this Muslim trouble causer in the near future
National Union of Students elects Malia Bouattia as president

A student criticised for not supporting a motion condemning the so-called Islamic State has been voted president of the National Union of Students.
But the NUS says Malia Bouattia was disputing the wording of the motion and not the principle – and backed a later condemnation of the terror group.
The student also co-wrote an article describing Birmingham University as “something of a Zionist outpost”.
Ms Bouattia will be the NUS’s first black Muslim woman president.
The newly-elected NUS leader promised to put “liberation at the heart of our work”.
“From cuts to maintenance grants, college closures, the black attainment gap and the Prevent agenda, the number of voices and groups being silenced by this government grows by day.”
Her campaigns have included “Why Is My Curriculum White?” and she has opposed the government’s Prevent counter-extremism strategy.
In 2011, she co-wrote a blog for a Friends of Palestine campaign group saying that“the University of Birmingham is something of a Zionist outpost in British Higher Education”.
The group also publicised that they were “re-enacting an Israeli checkpoint outside the university’s main library”.
Labour MP and former student leader Wes Streeting tweeted: “NUS is lost I’m afraid.” He said “it no longer represents students well”.
In a 2014 video from a Gaza and Palestinian Revolution event she questioned the value of the Middle East peace talks and warned of the influence of “mainstream Zionist-led media outlets”.
In October 2014, Ms Bouattia rejected a motion put forward by other students to condemn terrorist acts committed by the so-called Islamic State group.
The NUS says that this was a dispute over the appropriateness of the wording.
“Some committee members felt that the wording of the motion being presented would unfairly demonise all Muslims rather than solely the group of people it set out to rightfully condemn,” said an NUS spokeswoman.
The NUS says a subsequent motion condemned “the politics and methods of ISIS” and that this re-worded policy was supported by Ms Bouattia.
“NUS does not support ISIS and has always condemned violent terrorism,” said a union spokeswoman.
Last week Ms Bouattia responded to an open letter signed by university Jewish society leaders, rejecting claims of prejudice.
“It seems I have been misrepresented. I am extremely uncomfortable with insinuations of anti-Semitism.
“I want to be clear that for me to take issue with Zionist politics is not me taking issue with being Jewish.
“In fact, Zionist politics are held by people from a variety of different faiths, as are anti-Zionist politics.
“It is a political argument, not one of faith,” she said.
But Labour MP John Mann, and chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group Against Anti-Semitism, said the NUS “is not doing enough to combat anti-Jewish hatred, and as such is failing in its responsibilities to its members”
