Campus Jihad--In Their Own Words

Right on the heels of the article in the previous post, the Muslim Student Association groups at UC San Diego and UC Irvine have provided excellent examples of the problem of overt hate speech on many American university campuses.

At UCSD, David Horowitz spoke earlier this week. I'm not a great fan of Horowitz, but this video is worth watching. He is, rather easily, able to get a member of the UCSD Muslim Student Union to admit that she supports the terrorists of Hamas:
(you will note that she does use Horowitz' term "Hitler Youth Week" when noting the activities taking place on the campus as "Israel Apartheid Week"; she may not be familiar with the use of "air quotes". So don't think that there is an actual event called "Hitler Youth Week" at UCSD. I'm not sure about the University of Tehran, though.)

The MSA at UCSD then issued a cleverly worded non-apology which Robert Spencer carefully dissected to show that while they condemn actions taken against "civilians" or those who kill "unjustly", neither one of those terms apply to the deaths of Israeli women, children and senior citizens.

But that's really just the warmup act. The headliner for this week's Excess of Evil roadshow is an hour away up Interstate 405, where the UC Irvine MSA inflicts their annual special guest star Amir Abdel Malik Ali onto the campus community. Malik Ali's hate speech should be completely shunned in any civilized society; yet he is proudly promoted by the MSA at Irvine. In addition to the blood libel staples such as blaming Israel for the September 11 attacks, and blaming Zionists for the two US wars against Iraq (since "the neo-cons are all Zionist Jews"), he was also quoted as telling moderate Muslims that their desire to be liked was turning them into "house slaves in the mansion of a racist, imperialistic and destructive America." But Malik Ali shares the hate-- he also claims that the Matthew Shepard Act (making assault based on sexual orientation or gender identity a hate crime in the same fashion as other hate crimes) is a Jewish plot, and he has pretty much declared the entire non-Islamist world as the enemy: "Sooner or later, Today's Muslim students will be the parents of Muslim children; and they should all be militants."

This week, Malik Ali got confronted--Roz Rothstein, the founder and executive director of StandWithUs , challenged this purveyor of hate speech . In response, Malik Ali gives us the triple play--support for Hamas and Hezbollah, support for jihad, and likening Zionists to Nazis:

Of note, the European Union (not noted for its love of Israel) specifically cites, in its Working Definition of Anti-Semitism , two examples: "Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination" and "Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis". Actually, just read that whole document, since Malik Ali has managed to hit most of the definitions provided there. This definition was also cited and adopted by the US State Department in 2008 in its Report on Contemporary Global Anti-Semitism.

Now Malik Ali has the right to spread his poison; the First Amendment protects him. But campuses aren't obliged to give him a space and a microphone, just as newspapers aren't obliged to publish his screeds. And those who wish to give him a forum, using public money that is given to the Associated Students at UCI for student programming, must be held accountable for their choice to invite him--not once, but year after year after year.

Tell the UC Irvine administration that enough is enough. The MSU continues to host hateful speakers on its campus, inciting division and marginalizing Jewish students who support the state of Israel as the "new Nazis" on campus.

Tell the UC Irvine administration that this is dangerous and needs to stop. MSU should be sanctioned and placed on probation because they foment hatred against one specific group on campus: the Jewish group.

  1. As we learn of the continued rampant rantings of jihadists’ boastings from persons allowed on American University forums, we refuse to remain silent. These forums which provide mouthpieces of destruction of a nation of people must stop.

    Where is the line drawn in what and whom you allow to pour out hate- speech against the Jewish students and the Nation of Israel? Where is the line drawn in what dark ideology you allow on campus as public discourse? These are assaults against the freedoms of these students to peacefully attend institutions of education. What are the requirements for these hate-groups to apply and what must their resume’ read?...TERRORIST SUPPORTER: HATE SPECIALISTS: PROFESSIONAL JIHADISTS? We compel you not to join in these grievous activities by allowing such verbal assaults. The universities must not be accomplices in activities as this with public funding of any kind. This grotesque speech cannot be supported by any civilized people.

    Carefully consider the principles of the American Judeo-Christian and Constitutionally- founded with it’s basic standards and weigh them against another law that is being pushed by avid proponents who are building at Ground Zero 911 and weigh your choices. Keep in mind how this ideology revealed itself on this dark day in history and many other dark days. No amount of political politeness will change this fact. No one is safe.

    We need to fear the retribution of the cowardice of standing in silence aligning with dark speech rather than the courage of standing in the light of rightfulness. Political politeness will not protect our reputation. It will only cause our enemies to further despise us as a weak nation.

    We will not give up on the Nation of Israel anymore than letting go of our loyalty to the principles of what has made America a great nation, it’s an intrinsic thing. YES, we still consider ourselves an exceptional Nation needing great leadership.

  2. Part 2 of "How to be a bigot under the guise of a "critic of Israel""

    Go "pro." Leave the "anti" out, especially when appearing on camera.
    Titling is almost the first thing about Pallywood or Hezbollahwood propaganda. Though we all know there exist none real 'pro-Palestinian,' your job is to appear as if you are, it makes you appeal better as "innocent" and as an "activist."

    Always, without exception, Prejudge (prejudice) Israel before you know the facts.

    When mentioning the children, grandchildren of Arab immigrants, make sure to call them "indigenous palestinians."

    Never point out the culprit of Arab civilian deaths, facts don't matter, image does (ask those Palestinian-Arabs that pose to cry only when the camera is pointed at them... or Hamas that refuses aid when Israel checks the content of a ship).

    One good trick in trying to pose as "impartial," see to it that you "admit" to terror attacks by Hamas, Hezbollah, then minimize it as trivial and as committed by a "few extremists," never admit / mention that it's all done by the official regime in Gaza (Hamas) or by the "moderate" Fatah 'Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade'.

    Also, make terrorism a tiny bity part, and of course, needless to say that you cannot let the awful truth of 'anti-Israel campaign of genocide since 1929 Hebron' (all the failed attempts to wipe Israel off, 'Kill the Jews for Allah' and throw the Jews into the sea) ever heard.

    Make Islamic Hamas & Islamic Hezbollah sound as "freedom fighters" and as "resistance" to the Zionist "occupation." Don't talk about their charter of eradicating Israel and establishing a (totalitarian) Islamic rule in the entire area, oppressing all, especially non Muslims, mentioning this will only harm your goal.

    Make it sound as if the Islamic Palestinians and Hezbollah "don't" have any beef against Christians...

    Try to insert bombastic terminology, like: Racism, apartheid, that every survival step Israel ever takes is "racist"... it "works" mighty well, especially against the always guilt-ridden self-critic Jews that you hate so much.
    Never-mind that the real racism is on the Arab Islamic side that target any Jews for being Jewish and all Palestine zone is virtually ethnically cleansed 'judenrein.' Not to mention the overall racist Apartheid by almost the entire Arab and Muslim world against the tiny Jewish state (take a test and use an Israeli passport in the middle east... not to mention in the Arab hijacked UN and in other international forums, where persecuting little Israel is a routine, or what's up with excluding Israel's 'Star of David' ambulance from the ICRC? Are Jews' blood not red enough in racist Arabs & in Muslim bigots' eyes?).

    If you are an average Arab Muslim that hates Arab Palestinians, hide it and pose as "pro palestinian" and that you "ache" for the poor refugees." even though you have a;; the interest in the world for Arab-Palestinians to be suffering, more importantly, that they're seen as victims, it's the ingredient of utmost importance in the anti-Israel campaign.

    Phrase your rant into "criticism" the most effective one is "I am just criticizing Israel's policy" it works every time.
    The above message is not referring to the real genuine critics of one Israel's policy or another, nor is it to the gullible, mislead, misinformed, but to the average phony "critic" real hater that is obsessed with Israel, singling it out, and prejudge it, never giving it the light of the day.

  3. How to be a bigot under the guise of a "critic of Israel"

    Try and substitute 'anti-Zionist' instead of anti-Jewish, at least make sure, your references convey such messages.

    Avoid all humanitarian aspects of Israel's humane army in its constant fight against Arabs who trick them into firing upon civilians, ommit all the risky steps Israeli soldiers take in going house to house searching for bombs/bombers, instead of just leveling the place down (if Zionists were not caring about civilians), the repeated notification for residents to leave a certain area ahead of anti-terror operations, in order to give a chance for the unarmed to leave, despite, taking into account that with this opportunity, the dangerous Arab-Islamic mass murderers terrorists might flee as well.

    Don't ever mention that Israel goes out oif its way in treating Israeli Arabs with affirmative action on campus and in employment, besides favoring the Arab side in most court cases.

    All rare abuses that might occur in any democratic police force around the globe, when in Israel, see to it, you highlight it, again and again.

    As a general rule your mission is to dehumanize Israelis, though you'd have an easier job on Israeli soldiers, try to broaden it on ALL Israelis, like "they are all occupying land." including the preferred targets by Arabs, a.k.a. the children.
    Because only the Arabs have mothers, there are virtually no mothers in Israel, nor kids, each and everyone is a tank or a machine gun, and if someone points out to your racism, object with a passion that you are actually "anti-racist."

    Keep repeating a sad song about "injured children," make it sound really sad, depending on your acting abilities you might want to show as if you care, keep arguing along the line of: "whoever has lost more lives 'got to be the victim," avoid getting into the the self inflicted Palestine/Hezbollah's death industry, never explain how come their parents are converting them (to die or at least to be maimed) into propaganda toys against Israel's image.
    Because there are no victims on the Israeli side, its hospitals are always empty, 27/7 365 days a year.

  4. Good News! UCI has suspended the Muslim Student Union (MSU) for one year and placed it on disciplinary probation for an additional year. That’s not all. The MSU is also required to collectively complete 50 hours of community service. As a result, it will not be allowed to conduct organized campus events until at least the fall of 2011.
