UC Berkeley Has to Pay for Abridging Free Speech




Gary Fouse

UC Berkeley has learned the hard way there can be a price to pay for abridging free speech on campus. Now they are paying out $70,000 to Young America Foundation.


https://www.yaf.org/news/yaf-wins-landmark-free-speech-lawsuit-uc-berkeley-to-pay-70000-and-rescind-unconstitutional-policies/?fbclid=IwAR1rahcMqkjCI6AJv0Sd2AwxtLYUDV4g9hAeiBBE0wvTsNfGtaSVmOfr2ks

It is more subtle than a university refusing a student group to bring in a particular speaker. There are other ways a university can limit or eliminate free speech by certain speakers they don't like. They can charge outrageous security fees, for example, that they would not charge to other groups.

Several years ago, I attended an event at UC Irvine where David Horowitz appeared. Not only did the university switch his meeting room at the last minute to a more obscure part of the campus, none of the whiteboard markers had enough ink. Horowitz repeatedly laughed it off at the UCI administrators in the audience who were documenting his words on their laptops.

When Milo Yiannopoulos appeared at UCI not long ago, the event was placed in a room much too small to accomodate the hundreds of people (including myself) who were trying to get in-and whose names were on the registration list.

I salute the YAF for holding UCB's feet to the fire. These institutions all have a ready made statement they release to the media when these things happen to the effect that they are "100 committed to the principles of free speech, inclusions, etc etc etc". It is a joke. When students and assorted riff-raff rioted at UC Berkeley a few years ago forcing a last minute cancellation to Yiannopoulos's appearance, the university all but put their seal of approval on the assaults and destruction of property as campus police stood around like potted plants. Other universities, like UCI, seem to be allowing disruptions to continue for a set period of time before gently ushering the protesters out with no consequences.

Left to their own devices and with the public not paying attention, universities will continue to limit conservative speech and indoctrinate our youth. They need to be countered, and, when appropriate, sued.

SJP Conference Looms Over UCLA

Gary Fouse
fousesquawk
http://garyfouse.blogspot.com


This article first appeared in Times of Israel.



Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) will be holding its national conference at UCLA from November 16-18. A few years ago (February 2011), SJP held its Western regional conference on the Westwood campus. That featured the anti-semitic Oakland imam, Amir Abdel Malik Ali, leading his audience in the "pledge of allegiance", which bore no resemblance to the one most of us recite here in the US. Ali's "pledge" swore to fight to the death on behalf of Islam, jihad, and all that charming stuff.

There is much opposition to this year's conference, as well there should be. SJP is anti-Jewish to its core. No matter that they have a few misguided misfits of Jewish background. They are all for the total destruction of the Jewish state of Israel.

Here is an op-ed that the feckless UCLA chancellor, Gene Block, has written in the LA Times regarding the conference.

With all due respect, Mr Block is full of it. For years, he has allowed Jewish students at UCLA to be bullied and intimidated by the likes of SJP, the Muslim Student Association, and other pro-Palestinian forces. He is hardly alone among UC chancellors. From UC San Diego to UC Berkeley and in-between, it's the same old story. For 20 years, I have seen it first-hand on the UC Irvine campus where I taught part-time from 1998-2016. In the past two years since I stopped teaching there, I have attended subsequent events where the bully-boy antics of the SJP have been on full display. Their tactics are simple: disrupt, bully and intimidate. They are a disgraceful and despicable organization.

And look who is headlining this year's freak show at UCLA. The keynote speaker is Chicago-based Palestinian activist, Hatem Abudayyeh. Here is what Discover the Networks has to say about Abudayyeh.

Abudayyeh was an outspoken supporter of Rasmieh Odeh, the Palestinian woman who was convicted of terrorism in Israel, hid that fact while immigrating to the US, and was finally deported after lengthy and costly legal proceedings. All the while, she appeared in front of the courthouse where she was being tried shouting into a bullhorn to her followers about how unjust America is. And this guy Abudayyeh was one of her biggest boosters.

Lovely fellow. Just what SJP wants to represent them. We should all draw the appropriate conclusions.

As Chancellor Block stated, SJP has the right to free speech. But make no mistake. From November 16-18, hate speech will be on display at UCLA. With the new outbreak of fighting between Israel and the Hamas regime in Gaza, no doubt the rhetoric at UCLA will get even more heated. The 2016 UC Statement of Principles Against Intolerance, which Block referenced, will be violated to the point of making it nothing more than a scrap of paper.

Roseanne's tweet - Who are the real racists here?

We all know by now that Roseanne Barr has been sacked by her former employers, after she posted a "tweet" which has been deemed to be "racist" (whatever that even means.)

It is difficult to see how any of the atheist left-wingers who have criticised Ms. Barr for making that tweet can feel offended by it. For she has only said what they all believe to be true.

As the introduction to Richard Dawkins' book The Selfish Gene makes very clear, atheists who believe in the theory of evolution all agree that chimpanzees and human beings share about 99.5% of their evolutionary history, and there is no objective basis on which to elevate one species over another.

Every one of the atheistic left-wingers who have gone after Ms. Barr for making her "tweet" actually believes that human beings and monkeys share a common evolutionary ancestor, and have a lot of the same DNA. To a true believer in the theory of evolution, it is not controversial at all to assert that an individual human being has similar characteristics to an ape.

If Roseanne Barr is racist for saying that, then each and every one of the atheistic left-wingers who went after her is racist as well, for believing it to be true in the first place.

Latest Wave of C American Migrants Underlines Need for Border Security




Gary Fouse
fousesquawk
http://garyfouse.blogspot.com


As we speak, the latest wave of thousands of Central Americans is making its way though a compliant Mexico en route to our border. They have no visas. They have not been invited. They are coming anyway. They come waving Honduran, Salvadoran or Guatemalan flags. They stop to demonstrate in front of  our embassy in Mexico City along the way. Not exactly the best way to ensure you're welcome in the US. Apparently, they don't care whether they are welcome or not.

The same situation is playing out in Western Europe, where hundreds of thousands of migrants, asylum-seekers or refugees have stormed in from the Middle East and Africa, Most are young men in their 20s. With few exceptions, they are making no positive contributions to their countries of destination unless you call, terrorism, murder, and rape to be contributions. While the East European countries refuse to accept them, the Western Europeans seem powerless to say no.

There is also another possible similarity between the two groups: In both cases, billionaire financier George Soros appears to have his hand in it. In the case of Europe, it is documented. He funds some of the NGO rescue ships that are picking up African migrants in the Mediterranean and dumping them in Italian ports.  (At least up until the point where the new Italian government stopped allowing the ships to dock.) Soros is also suspected by some to be involved in the Central American wave though the liberal "fact check" sites dispute it.

Both examples point to the need for secure borders on both sides of the Atlantic. Contrary to accusations from the left, very few Americans oppose all immigration. We do insist, however, that we control who comes and who is not allowed in. For his part, President Trump, in his inimical style, is promising to stop the migrants marching through Mexico. Unfortunately, we are dealing with the by now obviously outdated law that people can apply for asylum if they can  get one foot over the border. We can't send our Border Control one foot over the line into Mexico to stop them. What is needed is cooperation from Mexico. In past decades, they have flooded this country with drugs and their own illegal immigrants. Now they are providing a way through Mexico for Central Americans. In short, Mexico is being a very bad neighbor.

It is up to Trump to pressure Mexico in no uncertain terms to stop this march toward our border. If these people are allowed into the US, it will be a huge failure on the part of the Trump administration.

Among all the hand-wringing from the left about the plight of all these thousands of 20-something men, lost is the fact that the actions of these migrants-both in the Americas and in Europe are truly hurting decent, legal immigrants. I still believe in legal immigration for those who will adopt our values and contribute to our various nations. I don't blame people who want to escape horrific conditions in their home countries to seek a better life in America or Europe. But the final say in who is admitted must rest with the receiving country. Immigration is not just for the benefit of the immigrant. It must also be for the benefit of the receiving country. We seem to have lost sight of that fact.

University of Michigan: It's Required




Gary Fouse
fousesquawk
http://garyfouse.blogspot.com

"Speaker Emory Douglas, part of the “Penny Stamps Speakers Series Presentation” of the Stamps School of Art and Design, displayed a slide that showed a picture of Netanyahu and Hitler with the words “Guilty Of Genocide” written across their faces. Below the photo was the definition of genocide."

The University of Michigan has been in the news quite a bit lately, and for all the wrong reasons. Just recently, a University of Michigan professor made news when he refused to write a letter of recommendation for a student to study in Israel. Now comes this about a speaker who compared Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu with Hitler. That's bad enough. It was a required attendance for certain students. 


https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/252890

So here we have a former Black Panther who comes to the university to defame Netanyahu as being comparable to Hitler, and attendance is mandatory?

I invite the reader to follow the above link to the Penny Stamps site. If you are left with the impression that it is tilted way to the left, you are not alone. This reminds me of the UC Irvine New Narratives program instituted a few years ago by then Vice Chancellor Thomas Parham. In April 2017, I 
attended one such event which was loaded with a panel of victims including one black radical Canadian  woman who had recently moved to the US and opened her talk by saying that she had picked the wrong time to come here in referring to President Trump. I tried unsuccessfully to get New Narratives to invite a speaker who had a more favorable image of America, but all I got was a big run-around.

I wonder if the Penny Stamps Speakers Series would consider bringing in a pro-Israel speaker to provide some semblance of balance to those students who are required to sit through these lectures.

Probably not.

79 years ago - WAR!

The second world war, as we have come to know it, did not have to happen.

Neville Chamberlain (not Winston Churchill) issued an unsolicited war guarantee to Poland on 31st March 1939. In the subsequent debate in the House of Commons, Chamberlain was criticised by Lloyd George (and others such as Nye Bevin) for issuing this guarantee without first making sure of Soviet military support.

The fact of the matter was, the British PM had overreached in a major way, and made a military guarantee which he could not fulfil. There was no way on earth that the British Army could defeat the Wehrmacht. An unsavoury truth, but there it is. The British attempted to get the Soviets onside after the event, and sent a delegation to Leningrad to that end, but those talks came to naught. Josef Stalin had said that he had no intention of pulling Britain's chestnuts out of the fire, and he meant it.

The Germans had been repeatedly trying to get the Poles to team up with them to go after the Soviet Union. The Poles kept on refusing, and once the Brits had lied to them and said they would have their back, the Poles only became more thrawn. They refused to do a deal with the Germans, sign the Anti-Comintern Pact, return the so-called "Free City" of Danzig to the Germans, or let them build an Autobahn to East Prussia.

The Brits had previously told the Germans that they had no problem with any of this. Halifax visited Hitler in November 1938 and told Adolf that the Brits were okay with a German flag flying over the so-called "Free City" of Danzig. So the Krauts were not being unreasonable in putting pressure on the Poles to let the predominantly German city of Danzig be ruled by Germany. This was in accordance with the principle of self-determination, and the Brits had said they were okay with it. As for building a big old road to East Prussia - who cares about that? Why would anyone want to go to war just to stop someone building a road?

Not for nothing did Churchill himself call the second world war "the unnecessary war." Of course that was after it was all over - he supported Chamberlain when he issued his unsolicited war guarantee. So his hands are as bloody as the next man's.

When the Germans heard of Chamberlain's astonishing about-face, they were not happy at all. "I'll cook them a stew they'll choke on!" yelled Adolf. He gave Ribbentrop the green light to approach the Soviets - these negotiations went on at the same time as the British effort in Leningrad. The Germans hated the Communists' guts, and as we now know, they ended up invading the Soviet Union on 22nd June 1941. But in the short term, they could get one over on the Brits, and get the Reds to do a deal with them instead. If the Russians were not going to provide the military muscle needed to back up Chamberlain's unsolicited war guarantee, then the Wehrmacht could go right ahead and invade Poland (half of it, anyway) and the British wouldn't be able to do a damned thing about it.

The Nazi Soviet Pact was eventually signed in the early hours of 24th August 1939. In a secret protocol, the Communists had agreed to take half of Poland, and as we now know, the Red Army did in fact invade Poland on 17th September. The Brits couldn't do anything about the occupation of Poland. And they didn't. That didn't stop Chamberlain from formally issuing his unsolicited war guarantee on 25th August 1939 - the day after the Nazi Soviet Pact was signed. Chamberlain could have backed down, resigned in disgrace, made a public statement explaining the reality of the situation (Britain was powerless to help Poland and could never defeat Germany in a month of Sundays) or even done the noble thing and hanged himself. Instead, Chamberlain (not Churchill) brought about the second world war. This was supposed to be a "good war" - what was "good" about lying to Poland, or abandoning Poland when she was invaded - twice, or starting a war Britain could never win? The British people - and the people of Poland - should be lining up to urinate on Chamberlain's grave. British politicians! Worthless charlatans, the lot of them!

On 1st September, the Germans invaded Poland, and two days later, Chamberlain (not Churchill) declared war. On 17th September, the Soviet Union invaded Poland, and Chamberlain didn't do a damned thing. Of course, as the secret protocol of the Anglo-Polish agreement of 25th August shows, Britain had limited her offer of help to Poland. The British offer of help only stood (worthless as that offer was) if Germany invaded. If the Soviets came in from the east, the Poles were on their own. So it was never about fighting for Polish independence.

What was it about then? The third principle in the Atlantic Charter stated that people should be free to choose the form of government under which they were to live - this was apparently what we fought the war for. And yet when Poland refused to let the predominantly German city of Danzig decide for themselves what form of government they wanted - we backed them and went to war. So it was never about that either.

We went to war because that is what politicians do. They interfere in other people's affairs, don't know what they're doing, have no principles, and don't give a shit if hundreds of thousands of their own people die. Hell, they're riding the political gravy train and having a right good time, and that's what really matters. There should be no wars - seriously. If any politician makes such a terrific arse of things that he ends up having to declare war, then he ought to be put in a steel cage with the other state's champion, and forced to fight to the death.

Let them fight.

Let them die.

You want an end to war on earth - that's how to get there. Let the evil, incompetent bastards who create wars fight them - man to man, and to the death. The rest of us can chill out in our La-Z-boys, open up a cool one, eat a sandwich, and watch it all on PPV.

Professor Juan Cole's Mohammad


Gary Fouse
fousesquawk


Hat tip Campus Watch and Middle East Forum


https://www.meforum.org/campus-watch/articles/2018/was-prophet-muhammad-really-illiterate-an-intervi

University of Michigan professor Juan Cole always goes to incredible lengths to defend everything that is Islamic. Now he has come out with a new book on the Prophet Mohammad entitled, Mohammad: Prophet of Peace Amid the Clash of Empires. If you had any doubts this would be a hagiographic endeavor, Cole's interview with Joseph Richard Preville erases all doubt.

How one can described Mohammad as a "prophet of peace" when he led armies to fight non-Muslims, took women and children as slaves and ordered the murders of his opponents and the beheadings of captives is beyond me. It is true that when Mohammad began his teaching in Mecca, he was peaceful. After he was driven out of Mecca, he and his followers went to  present-day Medina, where he consolidated his power and evolved into a warlord. Here are some statements by Cole that strain credulity.

JRP: You write that “Islam is, no less than Christianity, a Western religion that initially grew up in the Roman Empire” and that “Muhammad saw himself as an ally of the West.” How does your theory challenge or support other major scholarly interpretations of early Islam?

JC: The Arab Muslim sources emphasize the origins of Islam in Arabia and downplay how integrated the Arabs of late antiquity were into the Eastern Roman Empire, but Roman sources, inscriptions, and Qur'an passages give strong evidence for the Arabs as Roman citizens or  allies.  As for Muhammad being allied with Constantinople, there is some evidence for it in early Arabic sources and the eminent Princeton classicist G. W. Bowersock has hinted at it in his recent work, but I have taken the bull by the horns and said it explicitly.

It is true that all three monotheistic religions, Christianity, Judaism and Islam were born in the Middle East. While the first two successfully spread to the West ( the US is a democratic nation founded on Judaic-Christian principles), Islam's spread to the West, largely through recent immigration has hardly been successful. Assimilation has been slight and the clashes are too many to mention especially in Europe today. The fact is that Islam is antithetical to Western ideals of equality and freedom.


JRP: Many biographies portray Muhammad as illiterate and provincial.  Would you agree?

JC: The Muslim tradition calls Muhammad "illiterate," I think in part to protect him from charges by polemicists that he learned things by reading the Bible or other works.  But the tradition also says he was a successful long-distance merchant who regularly traded up to Damascus and Gaza in the Eastern Roman Empire.  Long distance merchants are always literate, and I think Muhammad could read and write Arabic, Aramaic and possibly Greek.  The Qur'an shows knowledge of the Bible, of Jewish tradition, and of classical Greek thought.  It isn't provincial.

An interesting observation and opinion on the part of Cole since he strays from Islamic teaching that Mohammad was illiterate. Also interesting is the reason Cole thinks Muslims say that Mohammad was illiterate. Critics of Islam do not believe that Mohammad truly received the word of God from the archangel Gabriel (He may have imagined he did), therefore the idea that he read the Bible and initially borrowed from it is open to question.

RP: What was Muhammad’s role in the creation of the Constitution of Madinah?  How revolutionary was this document for its time?

JC: The Constitution of Madinah was a treaty among groups in Madinah, to which the Meccan pagans expelled Muhammad in 622.  Madinah had Muslims, Jews and pagans and possibly some Christians. The treaty pledged all these groups to defend the city militarily if it was attacked.  It says that the Muslims have their religion and the Jews have theirs, so it recognizes freedom of conscience and is a political alliance.  In the Roman Empire at that time, Jews were placed under disabilities and would not have been treated as equals this way. 

And when the Jews supposedly broke the constitution, they were executed, and ever since Jews are hated within Islam. The Koran is replete with hateful verses against Jews (and Christians). Over the centuries Jewish minorities have had to live in a condition of dhimmitud, second class citizenship enshrined in the laws. It is true that in some places, Christians treated Jews as bad or worse as did Muslims, but Cole's answer leaves out tons of facts. 

JRP: How did medieval Muslim clerics slight or minimize the Qur’an’s peace verses by a theory of abrogation?

JC: Peace-making and turning the other cheek are very important themes in the Qur'an.  It allows going to war to defend yourself and innocents, but forbids aggressive, expansionist warfare.  The text was very inconvenient for later aggressive Muslim empires.  So ideologues developed a theory of "abrogation" where later verses invalidated earlier ones. They interpreted late verses on warfare as permitting aggression (they don't), and then alleged that all the peace verses were thus abrogated.  It was an intellectual and spiritual travesty.  Some Muslim thinkers, though, said only 5 verses were abrogated (not the peace verses), and rejected the procedure.   

For Cole to claim that peace making and turning the other cheek are important themes in the Koran is a hoot. Reading the Koran especially putting the suras (chapters) in chronological order contradicts Cole on its very face. The early Mecca suras do tend to be benign and peaceful, but the Medina suras are clearly not. Put in order of time, it all makes sense. Mohammad evolved from a simple preacher in Mecca to a warlord in Medina. As for the principle of abrogation (which Western-based "moderate" imams are loathe to discuss), it makes perfect sense given the transformation of Mohammad ands the obvious contradictory verses in the Koran. Keep in mind that it is the Islamic scholars themselves (not Cole) who are the authorities in Islam since Islam has no Vatican and has no popes.   

JRP: You have placed strong emphasis on Muhammad as a “Prophet of Peace.”  How do you think your book will encourage and strengthen Islamic peace studies?
 
JC: The peace verses of the Qur'an have been there all along, and have been central, but scholarship has not focused on them.  I'd like to see the kind of intersection of Peace Studies with Islam that exists with regard to Christianity.  Christians have fought a lot of wars and even been involved in genocide, but we all also know about the Quakers and Mennonites.  Only a few authors have written on the history of peace movements in Islam, which include the Murid Sufis of Senegal and the Gandhist Muslims in twentieth-century India.


Yes, the peace verses in the Koran have been there all along, but they are not central because they have been abrogated. Sura 9, the last major sura recorded is arguably the most violent and intolerable. It virtually abrogates every peaceful verse recorded earlier in time. As for Sufists and groups like the Ahmadiya Muslims, it is true they have a good track record of not being involved in the terror and intolerance we see in Islam today, but they are not regarded as Muslims by mainstream Islam. In fact, those that live in Muslim countries are persecuted. As for the wars and genocide of Christians, aside from the Crusades (in which both sides were culpable and Christians killed many Jews in the process), how many wars were fought for purely religious reasons? Genocide? I would argue that Hitler and the Nazis had no religious motivations for the Holocaust. They did not object to the theology of the Jews; they considered Jews as a race to be exterminated. And Hitler, despite his Catholic birth, was no Christian. He derided religion in general. If you want to talk about genocide in the modern sense, look no farther than today's Middle East.

If Cole wants to argue that most Muslims are leading peaceful lives and we should not blame them all for the atrocities being carried out today, that is fine. Cole, however, engages in falsehoods that are so easy to disprove just by scratching beneath the surface. If this is the type of scholarship to be found at the University of Michigan, they might as well stick to football.

Siraj Wahhaj: "My Son Can Be a Little Extreme"




Gary Fouse
fousesquawk
http://garyfouse.blogspot.com


This article first appeared in New English Review. Much of the information (not all) is contained in previous posts in Fousesquawk regarding this issue.




Even CNN's politically correct talk show host, Brooke Baldwin, was dumbstruck by that statement after she ran a video clip Thursday in which Imam Siraj Wahhaj spoke to the press about the arrest of his son, Siraj Wahhaj, Jr. in the New Mexico desert.

Yep. Keeping kids in starvation conditions in a filthy compound in the middle of the desert while training them to fire weapons in preparation for school shootings can be "a little extreme".

The elder Wahhaj also claims that it was he who tipped off the police to the New Mexico location when he learned that his son had absconded with his own three-year-old son in Georgia.

What CNN and other mainstream outlets are failing to report is the full background on Wahhaj Sr, a man with a long history of radical speech and associations behind him. About the farthest the media will go in describing Wahhaj's radical background is to advise the public that he appeared as a defense witness in the trial of the so-called "Blind Sheikh", Omar Abdel Rahman in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing case. They generally leave out the fact that Wahhaj was an unindicted co-conspirator  in the case. (He has never been charged.)

As the media loves to point out, Wahhaj was the first Muslim to give an opening prayer in the House of Representatives, which doesn't say much for the House. It is true that Wahhaj has convinced many non-Muslims that he is a peaceful moderate. When appearing before non-Muslim audiences (and the press), he comes across as a kindly, soft-spoken, grandfatherly type. When speaking before his own congregation and Muslim groups, however, it all changes. His language becomes full of hate, especially for America, which he has called "a filthy garbage can". He has also told his followers that Islam will take over America and made references to arming people with Uzis and 9 mm's. Both statements are now quite ironic given the filthy conditions in the New Mexico compound and the fact that weapons were also discovered including an AR-15.

Wahhaj's incendiary rhetoric has not turned off groups like CAIR, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Islamic Society of North America, or the Islamic Circle of North America, who use him as one of their favorite speakers. In 2013, CAIR  Southern California leader Hussam Ayloush spoke in Riverside, and I asked him why CAIR would invite Wahhaj as a speaker given the statements described above. Ayloush replied that Wahhaj was "one of the most prominent and respected religious leaders in America", and I was a bigot for asking.

Linda Sarsour is another admirer of Wahhaj, whom she describes as her mentor and who taught her to "speak truth to power".

Also ironic is the fact that when Wahhaj came to  speak at a charity dinner in Yorba Linda, California in 2011 along with another radical imam, Amir Abdel Malik Ali, sponsored by the Islamic Center of North America (ICNA), a Muslim Brotherhood-aligned group, a protest ensued prior to the scheduled beginning of the event. I was present and spoke at the protest as did several local public officials including Congressman Ed Royce (R-CA). Unfortunately, some people showed up with their own agenda and engaged the attendees with chants as they arrived, an act we did not approve of. In the lead up to the event, local residents met with ICNA representative Shakeel Syed (now of the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California) and requested that they find other speakers than Ali and Wahhaj given their radical nature. Syed's angry response was to point his finger at the lady who made the request and say that they would bring whatever speakers they chose.

Unfortunately, you will hear none of the above facts on CNN or other mainstream outlets other than perhaps, Fox. It is another sterling example of the media deliberately omitting pertinent facts.

Whether the elder Wahhaj has any involvement in his son's activities or not, it is fair to ask how much of his teachings sank into his son. I hope that the authorities will at least explore any possible involvement on the part of the imam. To not do so would be gross negligence on their part.

Full disclosure: I write this as an independent voter who routinely votes for Republicans simply because they more represent my conservative point of view. I have never joined any particular party.

But the case of the Stanford student, Hamzeh Daoud, who made written threats of physical violence against "Zionists" on the Stanford campus, has once again pointed out the fact that many College Republican (CR) chapters, especially in California, are taking the lead in standing up, not only for conservative values and free speech issues, but also standing up to campus anti-semitism.

During the years I was teaching part-time at UC Irvine (1998-2016) and getting involved in anti-semitism issues, the CR chapter was fairly dormant. That has changed in recent years as they have become more assertive in standing up for free speech issues and defending Jewish students under assault by the pro-Palestinian brown shirts. Probably the most significant figure has been Ariana Rowlands, a past president of the UCI CR and a recent graduate.

In May 2016, it was College Republicans, who by chance, witnessed an SJP disruption of a pro-Israel event on the UCI campus and videotaped it. They also stood up for free speech in inviting conservative pundit Milos Yiannopoulos to speak, which led to protests and an attempt by the UCI administration to discipline them. The CR stood their ground and forced the administrators to back down. More recently, the CR hosted a group of Israeli reservist soldiers to speak at their weekly meeting in May 2018, an event, which was predictably disrupted by outside agitators invited by who knows who. (Actually, I  have a good idea.)

Also at UC Berkeley. the CR chapter has stood for free speech. Their 2017 invitation to Yiannopoulos to speak led to an actual riot by Antifa type thugs, who by their actions forced a cancellation of the event.

Now comes the ugly incident at Stanford, where Daoud posted social media messages promising to (physically) fight "Zionists" on campus. It was the CR chapter at Stanford who put themselves out front by calling for the administration to take action. (To this date, we don't know what that action is.) Not surprisingly, the campus newspaper, The Stanford Daily, shamelessly stood up for Daoud and his anti-Israel cause, filling the pages of their publication with denunciations of Israel and the CR. Daoud has now resigned his position as a dorm resident assistant, but we do not know what if any punitive action will follow from Stanford. That is covered by state privacy laws.

Of course, one cannot speak for every CR chapter in the nation. Clearly, some are more active than others. All I can say is that it is heartening to see certain chapters actually stand up for their values in the face of the politically-correct climate on most every campus. If this is the future of the Republican party, I cannot wait to see them replace many of the current crop in Congress. We need to support them.

Shame on Marc Lemont Hill

Temple University Professor Marc Lemont Hill, who appears regularly on cable news channels, has really gone off the end with this one. On his Instagram account, Hill posted birthday greetings to convicted cop killer and fugitive Assata Shakur (real name JoAnne Chesimard), who since her escape from an American prison, has been living in Cuba.

https://www.thecollegefix.com/post/46947/

While Hill does not come across on TV as a hardhead, behind his friendly TV demeanor is a guy with radical beliefs. Shakur was committing her crimes before Hill was even born, yet he is so sure of her innocence. Maybe the learned professor should keep in mind that flight is evidence of guilt, at least an element.




Notwithstanding Hill's hagiographic description of Shakur, the American public has no sympathy for cop killers. Thus, Shakur can look forward to spending her final years in Cuba. Who knows? Maybe when she dies, the Cubans will entomb her next to that other icon of the left, Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

Islamic Center of San Diego Looking for Interpreters for Immigration Cases




Gary Fouse

This is interesting.

The Islamic Center of San Diego is issuing an urgent appeal for interpreters to assist immigration attorneys at the border (in its own words). Specifically, they are asking for interpreters in Arabic, Urdu, Bengali, Punjabi and other (non-Spanish) languages. Interpreters would be assisting the Federal Defenders of San Diego.

https://m.facebook.com/302790013065190/posts/2050542088289965/

So why is this interesting? It is because, as we have been saying for years, it's not just Mexicans and Central Americans coming across our southwestern border. People from the Middle East and the Near East are also coming via Mexico. If immigration attorneys in San Diego are in need of these kinds of interpreters, it just proves what we have been saying all along.This is nothing more than the Islamic Center of San Diego showing its obvious desire to get more Muslims into the country and now assisting those who come illegally. It is more proof that for the sake of our own national security, we need to build the wall.

A Link Between BDS and Terrorism

Hat tip Tablet Magazine

I recall the time I saw BDS (Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement against Israel)  co-founder Omar Barghouti speak at UC Riverside in 2014. I had encountered this self proclaimed "human rights activist" the year before at UC Irvine when he refused to tell me where he was born, saying it was "irrelevant". (It is relevant because Barghouti  was not born either in Israel proper or the disputed land and he has ruffled a lot of feathers by getting his university education at Tel Aviv University.)

At UC Riverside, I used the opportunity of the q and a to question Barghouti's credentials and ask the sponsoring department at UC Riverside if they would consider bringing in a speaker with a different point of view. Professor David Lloyd, a big shot in the BDS movement himself and sponsor of Barghouti's appearance, termed my question "preposterous" referring to Barghouti as-you guessed it-a "human rights activist".

Of course, the entire BDS movement poses as a human rights  movement that is non-violent. That is, to use Dr Lloyd's word,"preposterous". BDS is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the elimination (one way or another) of every last Jew in Israel. It just doesn't admit it. The BDS movement in the US has stirred widespread anti-Jewish feeling on countless US university campuses. That some oddball, leftist Jewish professors may support BDS does not change that fact.

That brings us back to Barghouti and the below article from Tablet Magazine, in which he is mentioned.

http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/263409/bds-umbrella-group-linked-to-palestinian-terrorist-organizations

 "Since its founding, the BNC has frequently and openly collaborated with known leaders of these terror organizations: In 2015, for example, the BNC held a press conference to pressure the Palestinian government not to import gas from Israel, featuring a speech by Khalida Jarrar, then a member of the Palestinian parliament for the PFLP and still an active official in the terror group. A video of the BNC-hosted press conference features Jarrar seated alongside BNC secretariat member Omar Barghouti."

So here we have the great human rights activist, Omar Barghouti, participating in an event with Khalida Jarrar, a member of the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine-a US State Department designated terror group.

It's called connecting the dots.

A Response From UCLA

On May 17, Students for Justice in Palestine disrupted an Israeli event at UCLA. Subsequently, UCLA received many letters of complaint, including one that I signed onto. Today, I received this email from UCLA in response.




Thank you for taking the time to write and share your concerns. UCLA is deeply disappointed that protesters disrupted a May 17th student event that focused on the experiences of Jewish, Armenian and Kurdish indigenous communities. This incident left many students feeling silenced and intimidated. It also dishonored UCLA’s commitment to the free and robust exchange of ideas. University officials and police arrived on the scene promptly, and the disruption ended without physical injury. Campus officials are carefully reviewing the incident to determine precisely what happened, who among the protestors are affiliated with UCLA, and how to appropriately respond to this incident. While we respect the right to lawful protest, such protests cannot prevent speakers from communicating with a willing audience.

Comment: While I appreciate the words in the letter, this is likely the last thing we will here of this.



 "Campus officials are carefully reviewing the incident to determine precisely what happened, who among the protestors are affiliated with UCLA, and how to appropriately respond to this incident." 

First of all, the video clearly shows precisely what happened. Secondly, had campus police identified the disruptors (which I am guessing they did not) they would know who were students. As to how to respond, any students should be, at the least, suspended if not expelled and SJP banned from campus. Finally, they are not protestors. They are disruptors. UCLA is a public campus, thus open to the public. Those who enter the campus for purposes of disruption should be arrested.

Let's follow this to see what happens.

Recount of UC Irvine Hate Week 2018

The Pro-Palestinian Students Suffer Another "Nakba"


This past week (April 30-May 4), the University of California at Irvine endured another week of anti-Israel activities sponsored by the Muslim Student Union (MSU) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). The week's theme was "Nakba", the Arabic word for catastrophe, which represents the "catastrophe" of 1948, when Israel became a state, and the Arab world launched an (unsuccessful) attack against Israel. Thousands of Arabs living in Israel left the territory at the urging of the Arab armies. Since Israel was victorious, those who had left, thinking they would return after the Arab victory, became refugees. Thus, it was Nakba week, and for the SJP/MSU, it was another public relations catastrophe.

Only one speaker was announced, and the rest of the activity centered around the so-called "apartheid wall". The days were marked by loud, angry chanting on the part of the SJP/MSU and behavior meant to be intimidating. The Israeli group, Reservists on Duty, was on-hand to answer any questions as to the truth about Israel. As happened last year, their presence angered the SJP/MSU. Finally, on Thursday night, the College Republicans invited the Reservists to speak at their regular meeting. As might be predicted, the event was disrupted by about ten persons who apparently came from off-campus. It marked the third May in a row that pro-Israel events were disrupted. As usual, no arrests were made.

What follows is a day- by-day account of the events. If you hit the links, you can see photos and videos.

Day One (Monday)

Around 11 am or so, this writer dropped by the so-called "apartheid wall" near the library. I chatted briefly with one of the representatives of Reservists on Duty, ex-IDF soldiers, most of whom are American-born. I noted immediately that the pro-Palestinian forces all had their faces covered with Palestinian scarves and other paraphernalia. It made them look like real, bonafide Arab terrorists. What kind of impression could this possibly have on other students? I took photos of two of them, a male and female. The male, seeing my camera, quickly darted behind the wall. He was too late. Later in the week, this individual would play a prominent part in the events.

Having seen their own (SJP) announcement of the week's events, I noted that only one speaker was scheduled, for Wednesday evening. I was curious to know if other events were planned for the other evenings. So I approached the table that SJP/MSU had set up and politely asked the aforementioned young man with his face hidden if there were any events for that evening. He quickly looked away and walked away as if I were going to attack him.

"C'mon," I said, "I'm not going to bite you." No response. I turned to a female and asked the same question. Silence. So, I walked away. I left campus at that point prior to the time when they began their dopey chants.

Day Two (Tuesday)

This writer was not present at UCI on Tuesday, but talking to my contacts who were, I learned that when the SJP/MSU types began their chants around noon, they deliberately got in the faces of the IDF Reservists (approximately 5 Reservists), who calmly stood their ground. Fortunately, there were plenty of campus cops to preclude any violence. As always, the tactic of the pro-Palestinian crowd is noise and intimidation.

Day Three (Wednesday)

When I arrived at the apartheid wall before noon, I saw that the campus cops were out in force. The first thing I saw (and videotaped) was an effort by one of the Reservists to dialogue with the young man in face mask who I described on Monday. (As throughout the week, the pro-Palestinians had their faces covered with Arab/Palestinian scarves and keffiyas.) The pro-Palestinians had claimed one side of the wall as their "space", and one Reservist had crossed the wall in an attempt to dialogue with the young man. The Reservist was polite and offered to take a letter from the SJP to the Israeli Knesset. He also asked the young man to shake his hand. All he got was f-bombs. The SJP/MSU guy twice told his followers, "Nobody from us better say a f----- word!" The others, almost all females, dutifully complied. You can watch and hear it by going to the above link. At that point, the cops asked everyone (not pro-Palestinian side) to clear the area on that side of the wall thus enforcing the Palestinian "safe space". That did not prevent the SJP/MSU from crossing to the other side when they began their chants or even before.

I then took the opportunity to interview (on tape-see above link) one of the female Reservists as to what had happened on Tuesday. She described how the SJP/MSU types had gotten in their faces with their chants.

Then shortly after noon, the little rascals began their chanting and marching. I managed to get lots of videotape including when our hot-headed friend tried repeatedly to intimidate me by getting directly in my face while I was videotaping. The cops were all  over us, and I just kept filming the pretty keffiya and the shifting eyes. The first encounter must have lasted about 5 minutes. It was quite amusing.

Having other things to do with my valuable time, I opted not to attend the evening event featuring some guy from Al Awda (Right of Return) in Orange County named Anis Zubi. He was described by the SJP/MSU as a "Nakba survivor".

Day Four (Thursday)

I was not present during the day, but aside from the usual bickering and chanting, things were somewhat calmer than the previous day.


Thursday Evening- Disruption

During the week, the College Republicans at UCI announced that they had invited the Reservists on Duty members to address their group at their regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday evening. That raised the question to whether this event would be disrupted. The previous May, Students Supporting Israel had invited the Reservists to speak during Hate Week, and that event was disrupted by SJP and others. I was present and videotaped it all. Similarly in May 2016, SJP and other groups (assisted by so-called legal observers from the National Lawyers Guild- attached to the UCI Law School, no less) had disrupted a pro-Israel meeting in which an Israeli Defense Forces film was shown. After  last year's incident UCI placed SJP on two-year probation. Would SJP members at UCI risk further punitive action by disrupting yet another event?

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend due to medical reasons, but others were prepared to videotape any disruptions. The College Republicans had announced beforehand and opened their proceeding by repeating that people speaking out of turn would be removed. Yet, it happened again. About ten people were allowed to fill empty seats after the event had started. Though the dean of students and campus police were present, they pulled out a bullhorn and began their chants. For some reason, it was allowed to continue for about three minutes until they were ushered out of the room. For the third year in a row, a Jewish, pro-Israel event was disrupted-with no arrests. The College Republicans live streamed the event, which can be viewed here.

At this point, things are not altogether clear. Witnesses have been told that no arrests were made and that the disruptors were not UCI students. It appears, though this is not confirmed, that the disruptors were not even identified. If that is the case, it is inexcusable. The question remains as to who invited them or caused them to be on campus in the first place. In 2010, when MSU students at UCI disrupted the speech of the Israeli Ambassador to the US, Michael Oren, not only were arrests made, which led to successful prosecution, but the police did an extensive follow up investigation that proved that the disruption was pre-planned and attempts were made to cover up that planning. In my mind, such an investigation is appropriate now to show if any links exist between the disruptors and anyone else at UCI.

We are waiting to see if there is any complaint filed by the College Republicans and if UCI will conduct an investigation. One witness, who was not affiliated with the university, filed his own complaint with the UCIPD. The time has come for public pressure on the university to put a stop to this wave of anti-Jewish (Yes, that's what it is) agitation and thuggish behavior. When one side engages in disruption, which is a SJP specialty, the other side has its right of free speech infringed upon. Based on what develops in the coming days, I will suggest specific measures that the public can take.

Once again, the pro-Palestinian forces that are running amok on our campuses have embarrassed themselves at UCI and have embarrassed UCI in the process. For SJP and MSU, congratulations: Your Nakba week turned out to be a real nakba to your own cause. If you think you can dress up like terrorists and act like hooligans and win public opinion to your cause, you are sadly mistaken.
