The Islamic War on Freedom at USC – by David Horowtiz

David Horowitz was one of the founders of the New Left in the 1960s and an editor of its largest magazine, Ramparts. He is the author, with Peter Collier, of three best selling dynastic biographies: The Rockefellers: An American Dynasty (1976); The Kennedys: An American Dream (1984); and The Fords: An American Epic (1987). Looking back in anger at their days in the New Left, he and Collier wrote Destructive Generation (1989), a chronicle of their second thoughts about the 60s that has been compared to Whittaker Chambers’ Witness and other classic works documenting a break from totalitarianism. Horowitz examined this subject more closely in Radical Son (1996), a memoir tracing his odyssey from “red-diaper baby” to conservative activist that George Gilder described as “the first great autobiography of his generation.” He is author of the newly published book The Great Betrayal (Regnery 2014), which is a chronicle of the Democrats treachery in the war on terror before 9/11 to the death of Osama bin Laden.


horowitz-slanders

The libelous slanders a "progressive" campus group has been using in preparation for David Horowitz's speech tomorrow.

Editor’s Note: See David Horowitz’s previous blogs on the Islamist war on Freedom at America’s colleges here, here, here, and here.

Today I am scheduled to speak at the University of Southern California. The focus of my speech will be the genocidal incitement of the prophet Mohammed that calls on Muslims to exterminate the Jews as the condition of their redemption:

“The hour of judgment will only come when Muslims fight the Jews and kill them, when the Jews hide behind the rocks and the trees, and the rocks and the trees cry out, ‘O Muslim, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.’”

The sayings of the prophet Mohammed — hadith — were complied 200 years after his death. A reasonable Muslim, a modern Muslim, could easily conclude that this hateful incitement is apocryphal and should be removed from the sacred canon. In fact there is a Turkish commission that has taken up the task of sorting out authentic sayings of the prophet from the inauthentic. Unfortunately, Turkey has become an Islamofascist state in full-throated support of the war against the Jews and it is too much to expect that the Islamic authorities in Turkey will do anything about this hadith.

Worse, this hateful incitement is posted on the official USC website. It was originally put there by the USC Muslim Student Union which, like other organizations affiliated with the Muslim Student Association (MSA) is an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, a supporter of the Islamic jihad against the infidels and specifically of its war against the Jews. When we became aware of the offensive posting of this saying of the prophet Mohammed we took steps that led to its removal by the USC provost who called it “disgusting.” The removal was met by a protest from the MSA and other organizations that are part of the terrorist network including the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) who called its removal religious discrimination. But the USC administration held its ground. Recently, however, the hadith of hate reappeared on the USC website, this time put there by an organization called the Center for Muslim-Jewish Engagement (CMJE). USC College Republicans have petitioned the USC administration to remove the hadith.

Meanwhile, the supporters of Islamic terror at USC — Students for Justice in Palestine and the USC Progressive Alliance (fascist alliance would be more accurate) — have put out hate propaganda against me and are attempting to shut down my speech, thus repeating the war against free speech that the Muslim Brotherhood network conducted two weeks ago at Temple when we presented the film Fitna and Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders.

The Progressive Alliance flier consists of a quote attributed to me which is entirely invented. It’s even written in Osama Bin Laden speak (“while having the body of the human being, a Moslem who unquestioningly follows the Quran behaves like a soulless beast.”) and in style alone represents nothing that I have ever written, said or believed.

Students for Justice in Palestine put out a similar smear sheet last week which was somewhat more (or is it less?) creative in presenting my alleged positions as the opposite of what I actually believe. I wrote a response to that attack and submitted it to the USC Daily Trojan, which has yet to print it:

To USC College Republicans, USC Hillel, USC Students for Justice in Palestine, and anyone concerned:

A campus activist by the name of Alex Sham, whose organization is a supporter of genocide against the Jewish state and of the Hamas terrorists and of the general terrorist jihad against Israel and the United States, has sent a malicious slander to Facebook, and apparently intends to conduct a campaign to demonize me in advance of my speech at USC. Sham’s disgraceful post makes a series of ugly charges against me — not a single one of which has any basis in anything I have ever actually said.

For example:

I have never said that blacks have benefited from slavery or that they should express gratitude for being enslaved. There is no such statement of mine to that effect anywhere which is why Sham does not quote an actual statement of mine but merely makes up what he thinks I said.

I have never said that “Muslim student groups are designed to bring jihad to America.” I have made statements about one such group and only one — the Muslim Students Association — which supports annual protests against the very existence of the Jewish state (an act in itself of genocide by any reasonable definition of the term,) and which regularly hosts speakers who support the terrorist jihad against Israel and the West, call for the execution of gays, and support regimes such as the Islamic Republic of Iran which executes gays.

I have never made a statement that “blacks slit throats.” I have made one remark about one black — O.J. Simpson — who did slit his wife’s throat.

And so on.

I am not a racist and I am not an Islamophobe. I have organized protests on more than 100 college campuses against the oppression of Muslim women. I have published booklets against the oppression of Muslim women and I have sponsored panels with Muslim speakers against the oppression of Muslim women. There are numerous videos of my campus speeches on the web where I can be seen saying that my efforts are not directed against all Muslims but are in fact conducted in behalf of most Muslims against the hijacking of their religion by totalitarian radicals (who are supported by Students for Justice in Palestine.) It is evil to pretend to speak in the name of all Muslims when you are conducting a campaign of hatred against Jews and gays and other minority groups.

In his email, Sham threatens to attack my speech by any means necessary. Presumably this is also a threat by Students for Justice in Palestine whose members at Berkeley and other places have been arrested on campus in the past for breaking the law. This kind of threat is an expression of the fascist mentality for which Students for Justice in Palestine is rightly famous.

I hope members of the USC community will appeal to university officials to see that civility and order are maintained around this event, and that Students for Justice in Palestine are put on notice that this kind of anti-intellectual and uncivil behavior is unacceptable.

David Horowitz

What is taking place on our campuses is a jihad against our First Amendment freedom. It is an attempt to silence anyone critical of the Islamic war against the Jews. Responsible Muslims will condemn the unholy alliance of Muslim fascists and their left-wing collaborators which is conducting this war and which is led by the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, the Muslim Students Assocation, Students for Justice in Paletine and the Progressive Alliance.

    ACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! David Horowitz is a TOTAL NEOCON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    keep him away from So Cal!!!

    Ron Paul 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!

    But where? When? I can't find any info on the details. The USC website pretends D.H. doesn't exist.

  • davarino

    What?? You support Ron Paul and yet you advocate silencing DH? I dont get it.

  • cjkcjk

    What exactly do you mean by 'neocon' or do you have the mind of a Parrot as I suspect?

  • cjkcjk

    I notice the figure underneath the 'USC progressive alliance' is wearing a terrorist style mask; how appropriate!

  • therealend

    I feel something unenlightened and especially witless is coming out of its cycle of dormancy in its campus incubator. Let's hope they don't get Gov't jobs when they graduate (or pupate).

    Extemists and fanatics trying to shutout different opinions. No shocker there!! Last time I checked, I and everyone else in this country can have any opinion they want and make their judgements based on facts, not fervor! And, as I have said before, if you are here and do not like this country and the principles it was founded on, leave. No one will stop you.

  • GJTryon

    Fight the good fight, David, and to hell with the “armies of the night.” Hope you're going to videotape your USC session!

    Poor dear must have been listening Air America way too much. I too cannot correlate Dr. Paul's explicit beliefs on the Constitution and yet you support the terrorists in sheep's cloth that DOES tell lies and DOES support HATE and MURDER wholesale of ALL JEWS! These are agents of the Muslim Brotherhood that want to silence ANY opposition to their mission of a global Islamic Caliphate and their sworn destruction of Israel!

    You obviously have been listening to MSA's hateful rhetoric and vile slanders rather that really taking the time to hear or read what Mr Horowitz has to say on any of these subjects. I frankly to not know why David even bothers to defend himself against such trash, but I guess one must do what one feels he or she must do!

    I also do not see how you can claim to be starspangled when you support, rape, murder, misogyny, homophobia, female genital mutilation, female subjugation & slavery, anti-semitism, and fianlly the grandaddy of them all, the killing of all Jews and infidels(that's you and me BTW!). Welcome the world of the Muslim Brotherhood and their USC campus henchmen, the Muslim Student Association!

    Asalaam Alaikum

    It's not quite that easy unless you plan on Canada or Mexico, but otherwise a passport and Visa from the country you paln to escape too, and viola, you can free of this mean old USA anytime you wish.

    Heck I bet we could even take up collection to pay your way.;-)

    How bout it folks should we start a fund for all the discontented USA haters and help fiance their way to the country of their choice, whereupon they can bask in the experience of real socialism or jihadism or whatever the malcontents so fervently desire to ram down our throats?

    America Again in 2010!

    Muslims libeling and lying? What a surprise!

    Remember, they've got taqqiya down to a fine art, although this crude attempt doesn't even reflect that Muslim tactic very well. Usually the lies are harder to spot.

    Fine job in causing MORE people to hate Islam. Maybe these fools are tools to make the controlled opposition look bad.

    “THE FREEDOM OF THE CONSTITUTION TO OVERTHROW THE CONSTITUTION!” STEVE CHAVEZ

  • rrwest

    Thank you for your tireless efforts on behalf of freedom.

    One would hope that the leaders of the west would understand that Islam is the oldest, longest-standing multinational political system in the world. That it has a layer of religion on top is a moot point. Imagine holding offcially sanctioned prayer sessions for Karl Marx or Lenin and you get the picture.

    All decision makers in Muslim countries who affect public and private conduct are beholden to the imams, clerics, ayatollahs, shieks, and mullahs of Islam. This is the reality of sharia law.

    Once we can convince the world of this fact, then university officials and people all over the world will be able to look at Islamic scripture and its creed in a vastly different light.

    Good luck with the fight. May truth, freedom, equality and democracy prevail.

    To think that some of our institutes of “higher education” are becoming promoters of the lowest and most unenlightened philosophies in existence should not be a shock. In a 21st century hi-tech American university we have illiterate desert cave-dwellers able to dictate how American students should think.

    The baby-boomers thought they could advance civilization quicker by spoiling their kids and giving in to their every want, especially their natural desire to extend childhood as long as possible, keeping them gay, happy, and carefree. We adults now wonder how Halloween got changed from a young child's night out into an adult street-fest of men-children parading in, or out of, costumes. Why should we wonder how these Levi-clad, BMW worshipping, TV zombies become empty inside and so easily receptive to anything, even philosophies of self-destruction?

    Is it a shock that even college newspaper editors will look at each other in amazed wonderment when they get a letter explaining why Jihad is bad? “Hey Bianca, some guy named Horowitz says we are at war with Muslim extremists.” And assistant editor Bianca replies, “Who? Never heard of him.”

    So who's responsible for this mess? The post-war baby boomers who thought we could grow and nurture our vicarious field of dream children have succeeded in overprocessing them into Wonder Bread intellects unable to even recognize the danger of fire.

    The greatest people in history never had any formal education, reading and writing by candlelight, using hand-made quill pens. Today's students cry that they may have to work serving coffee while in college. Maybe Arnold Schwarzenegger, who quit school at 14, and would probably be a better president, knows something in his gut when he's willing to make it so much harder to get a college education. My hunch is he's aware that in our success at devoloping left-brain intellects, the right-brain real-world awareness has atrophied. Result: the “New Left,” and for many pre-war and post-war kids, the real meaning of “shock and awe.”
