Islamic Hate Goes to School

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

Back in the 90′s when Hatem was at San Francisco State University, he participated in an assault on the offices of the Golden Gater student newspaper accusing it of being full of Jewish spies. Jewish students had complained about anti-Semitic behavior by Bazian, in his role as student body president, and his campaign against Hillel, the leading Jewish campus organization, was a direct attempt to disenfranchise Jewish students.

The SJP organization allowed Hatem an even larger platform for his violent bigotry. In April 2002, seventy-nine members of SJP attempted to disrupt a Holocaust Remembrance Day event and were arrested. At a rally to protest their arrests, Bazian said, “take a look at the type of names on the building around campus — Haas, Zellerbach — and decide who controls this university.”

SJP’s conference in 2001 was sponsored by a Hamas front group with the American head of Islamic Jihad as its keynote speaker. Bazian would later serve as the representative for KindHearts, another Hamas front group. And true to its MSA roots, the SJP Berkeley site describes Hamas as “a vast social organization” which “also has a militia established to fight Israeli troops in the occupied territories.”

At one event, Bazian reportedly quoted the genocidal Hadith which appears in the Hamas charter; “The Day of Judgment will not happen until the trees and stones will say, Oh Muslim, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.” And Bazian and the SJP have helped bring that atmosphere of universal hostility to college campuses across America.

When the SJP deploys makeshift checkpoints on campuses where its members yell, “Are you Jewish?” at passing students , when it disrupts Holocaust memorials and Jewish student concerts, when it assaults and intimidates Jewish students on campus– it is making the trees and stones of the Ivy League and the Public Ivies a place of terror and danger for Jewish students.

The start of Students for Justice in Palestine activities in 2000-2003 coincided with a sharp rise in anti-Semitic incidents on campus and an increase in incidents in California– the epicenter of its activity. Since then the pattern of incidents has resulted in the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights launching an investigation into the University of California.

The rising wave of hate culminated in the SJP’s launch of the first divestment campaign at an American university… on Holocaust Remembrance Day. During 2011’s Days of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust, they achieved another milestone by getting the Berkeley Student Senate to pass a resolution boycotting companies that do business with Israel.

Today Jewish students don’t face quotas; they face checkpoints and speakers whose call for their deaths is paid for with their student fees. The discrimination that Jews of Middle-Eastern origin fled in the Muslim world has followed them here through the Islamic supremacism of the Muslim Brotherhood, which through groups such as Students for Justice in Palestine and American Muslims in Palestine has brought a dangerous climate of hatred to America.

    Fifty years after Columbia University imposed quotas on Jewish students, it was violently divided between Dr. Marvin Stern's group and Bob Feldman's group. That's way more exciting. IDA vs SDS was much more interesting.

  • findalis

    "Today Jewish students don’t face quotas;" Now that is a lie. The days of the 13% rule are back. Inspired and promoted by the MSU and Saudi Arabia, the start of barring Jews from the best schools is back.

    To put it bluntly: It is 1938 and tomorrow is kristallnacht!

    • oldtimer

      This is so unAmerican. But any school that allows such behavior is a far cry from being one of the best schools. If they allow this, what do they teach.

    • http://creedmoorer.blogspot.com Der Shygetz

      I don't think there are quotas.

      I think it is just that Asians have taken over where pure intellectualism is concerned. Today's bright college student wants to be Mark Zuckerberg, not Jonas Salk – or better yet, he wants to be the one who brings to market whatever the next Jonas Salk, whose name is Chong or Patel, will discover. Therefore, if he doesn't quit school altogether to found his first company at 18, the bright Jewish college student studies finance and works part-time in a startup. He doesn't see the value in learning to be part of the system in an Ivy League school – he wants to be the system. College teaches you to be a cog in the wheel, or at best to turn the wheel a quarter turn – it does not teach you how to make a better wheel. In addition, with medicine being just a small business with many regulations, it is not attractive to the ambitious Jewish student anymore.

      Therefore, you have fewer Jews applying to MIT and the like. Rumors are of an Asian quota, though, not of a Jewish one.

    School is overrated. Back In the old days there was respect for the teachers and students alike. A LOT has change since then but the respect should have stayed.

  • jacob

    How do you get rid of school bullies ???
    Taking them to the principal's office won't do a thing for you
    Than what is the solution ??
    Beat the living hell out of him and you'll see he won't come back for seconds
    Same thing with Jewish students at institutions like Columbia, Berkeley, etc,.
    Lawsuits won't do squat as their authorities are either outright complicit or
    look the other way, bought as they are by Saudi "donations"…

    Therefore, the solution is the same used to rein in school bullies….and
    knowing Arab behaviour, rest assured they won't come back for seconds

    • effemall

      It is a delight to hear a voice of reason. Where is the spirit of Irgun? The Stern Gang? I learned as an immigrant kid that no bully, no matter what his relative size, will bother you if you are ready to inflict pain the minute he starts up. Identify the leaders and go after them on campus and off. Let THEM seek help from the courts in fear of their lives!

      • http://yahoo.com Kate

        But the Leaders hold positions of highest level in our governments…the judges are shielding them (for now). their day is coming, the day for the bully always comes, but oh the fight that Islam is provoking…on campus and everywhere! Even now, everytime I go to a gas station I get the evil eyes, like I should be wearing a burqua. It is creepy.

    • Raymond in DC

      On many campuses, the Arabs and Muslims have the numbers. Even where they don't, the majority of Jewish students are not itching for a fight; they're more inclined to keep their heads down and not get involved. Arab and Muslim students have no such inhibitions; they're out to cow their fellow students into dhimmitude. Campus administrations are more inclined to appeasement than to taking a stand against such behavior.

      The fact is these trouble-makers don't fear being sanctioned. They don't fear punishment by campus authorities or police. Were they to fear criminal sanction, expulsion or deportation they'd be more inclined to behave.

  • montlasky

    The previous writer is correct. The Jewish students must band together to "break: a few Muslim heads and bloody a few noses and the whole bullying atmosphere will grind to a halt. The Muslim "students", i use the term reservedly,are a cowardly bunch and will run off and leave their shoes behind just like they did in the 1967 war. against Israel.

      Brits tried to hold a rally on 9/11 for a memorial service in England and were lead away by the police! while a hundred Islamic, flag burning, hate chanting, murder chanting Islamists were allowed to illegal demonstrate and harrass the American embassy. check it out: atlasshrugs.com

    Works for me!! Kick the crap out of the islamists and they will run and hide like the roaches they are!! Did I have someone try to bully me in school. Long ago!! Yes!! Did he get his a$$ beat? You bet!!! They mistake being nice for weakness!! Opps!! They ran into someone who was trained my his war vet father on how to defend himself!!! So!!!

  • http://frontpagemag.com Tracie

    Why are these hate organizations even ALLOWED on OUR university campuses anyway? Would they allow a WHITE CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATION on campus–NO!!! THAT would be discriminatory to ALL other peoples…so WHY is there an organization on campus to allow such OBVIOUS hatred toward, not only Jews, but everyone else who doesn't like muslims? If Americans do not wake up SOON…it WILL be too late for this nation…we will be another nation of islam…I, for one, have had it up to my eyeballs with ALL of them. There can't be a'peaceful' muslim…if they follow the quaran…they pose a threat to our VERY system of government, such as it is right now…but we ARE a FREE country…

    • guest

      Its not a hate group. It is a sharia group. Sharia is a word for hell on earth.
      If not for the Jews being here they would be attacking us.

      We allowed the politically correct free rein to grab our schools, and local governments. We need to take back America from these sick twisted people called the left. The hate just pours out of them, just like Islam.

    • FlyanSosser

      Yes–The Bible makes it clear the arabs are the ENEMY of God–called "Arbeh" in the original Hebrew texts. The Arbeh define evil. Their "Religion of Peace" scam has fooled many people, yes. Especially in the United States, where the Arbeh have had the help of (mentally-disordered) liberals and the "government-media complex" to pull off the guise that they are peaceful and loving. What a crock (as most people know)! That is, in reality, the Arbeh are part of a political movement, not a religion by any means whatsoever. And it is a very dangerous political movement at that.

      • FlyanSosser

        Of course, the United States recognizes the Arbeh as a minority (since they are non-whites), and this fact enables them to do anything and everything they want in the United States (with the help and support of government and society)–simply because they qualify as a minority in the United States. Just as with any minority in the United States, the United States must be "sensitive-to-the-needs" of the Arbeh, too. If the United States should ever not be sensitive-to-the-needs of the Arbeh, the Arbeh would OFFICIALLY become OFFENDED (just like any other minority is when the United States is not sensitive-to-their-needs) at that point and then we have the "Big R Word". Consequently, whenever the Arbeh become OFFICIALLY OFFENDED in the United States, cries of racism will spring up everywhere from Arbeh all over the United States and all over the world.

        • FlyanSosser

          In the end, the Arbeh get to continue doing what they do best–going to their friendly neighborhood mosques and planning acts of terrorism on the United States–simply because they qualify as a minority in the United States. Lastly, the Bible tells us the Arbeh will be swarming like locusts in our generation. Well, its fairly obvious the Arbeh are indeed swarming like locusts these days–Egypt and France are only two examples of this swarming. It is what it is.

    ' TAQIYYA '
    Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

    islam IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    islam strives for world domination.

    The quran commands muslims to exercise jihad.

    The quern commands muslims to establish shariah law.

    The quern commands muslims to impose islam on the entire world.

    islam is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    islam IS and has remained a death cult from its beginnings.

    islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a islamic society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the quran is the call to jihad.

    Jihad means a lot of things and is arabic for battle.

    islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    islam and freedom, islam and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

    mohamed's "wife" was six years old.

    That makes mohamed a PEDOPHILE!!!

    And you want to base a "Religion" on this a z z -holes rantings?

    Are you INSANE?

    I STAND with Israel

  • StephenD

    I wonder if we can use this and similar instances to turn the tables some. For instance, call on folks like Rep Ellison (Muslim) and voice concern for safety on campus and invite him to speak out against it. You know, the guy who cried talking about the one Muslim Emergency Responder that died in the Twin Towers? He is so sensitive. You have to know he would defend innocent students against such atrocious behavior. Have him publicly call out the MSA and the SJP and admonish them for their violent and non-peaceful behavior. Let him be the one to point out how the represent a “religion of peace.” LOL
    I'd test the waters. What do you have to loose?

      They disrespect women. I believe women are not allowed separate showers, but I expect prayer rooms and foot baths are there. Prayer is not allowed except for Muslims.

    Columbia and all colleges and universities who allow anyone to be threatened by these barbarian IslamoFascists have to be taken to court and have their asses sued for millions and compelled to take action against the Muslim hordes on campus.

    I was an undergraduate at U.C. Berkeley in the mid-1960's. The campus was mellow back then, compared to now. Radio station KPFA (94.1 f.m. in Berkeley) does its part to demonize Israel daily; its Jewish broadcasters are more than eager to do their part to destroy Israel. The A.D.L. is merely a debating society; Abe Foxman doesn't have a clue.
    I won't donate to the Alumni Association unless and until Jewish students at Cal have a safe environment. (I'm not holding my breath.)

      They are over here learning how to use our technology to make bombs and other lethal weapons so they can come back with a bunch of their fellow jihadists and blow us off the face of the earth. These third world countries would not have a clue about modern weapons if our government had not gone over there a recruited students to come here and learn our methods and technology. Instead of learning modern agriculture methods, health care,nutritional, and educational methods, we let these finks sign up for nuclear and chemical weapons courses. Our leaders surely had a death wish.

    I can't understand why anyone would want to enroll in Columbia University. Perhaps to study political "science" under Zbigniew Brzezinski. Or Islam under the successor of Edward Said. It is hard to think of any professors of first rank who teaches there.

  • FriendofGaryCooper

    It's really fairly simple–university administrators allow these hate groups on campus
    because their schools accept money from MB front groups and/or Saudi Arabia, or
    other Muslim countries. Georgetown University in Washington DC is just one example,
    but American K-12 public school systems accept money from the same sources. An
    example that was on Fox News not long ago is the public schools in Joplin, Missouri.
    They accepted $500,000 from the Saudis, after the floods in Joplin a few months ago.
    Stop the flow of Muslim cash to American universities and public school systems.
    And Jewish self-defense organizations on campus is also part of the answer.

    • MinnieM

      What you are saying is that our Universities and colleges have sold their souls for the almighty petro dollars.

  • sharon teig

    what's interesting to me, is that no one has addressed the situation of the palestinians in israel..until this is resolved, you can hate the islamist all you want, but understand that Israel must move forward. It is most disturbing that jews are in danger and even killed..it would seem that a university is a place for debate..perhaps berkeley or columbia could be instrumental in making a change for the better…

    • Herb

      Israel versus Arabs…..such a simple equation, except that

      There are less than seven million Jews in Israel and over three HUNDRED million Arab Muslims in twenty-two Arab League nations most of whom would love to see the extermination of the Jews and their tiny state.

      NOW WOULD SOMEBODY PLEASE DO THE MATH!!!?

      In other words, when seven million Arab Muslims are surrounded by three hundred million screaming JEWS, then I'll sympathize with the Arabs! And not before.

  • Wotan

    This Islamic sickness is happening in Canada as well; specifically the Toronto District School Board.

    There is a middle school that has been having Muslim prayers during school periods. In Ontario and Canada public education is SECULAR and has been for many years.

    Please take the time and read this article and vote against Muslim prayers in school.

    The results right now are 50/50 this obviously because Muslims are voting em masse.

    Again, please vote against: http://www.citytv.com/toronto/citynews/news/local

      There is a school in New York City where Muslim students are allowed to bring their "prayer rugs" to school and are provided a room and time out for their ritual prayers. So much for separation of church and state.

  • mah29001

    I believe Palestine was behind 9/11….after all why the heck do these pro-Palestinian student groups continue to receive our tax payer money? These hypocrites whine about AIPAC….but they continue to receive more money from American tax payers….what hypocrites!

    • MinnieM

      No government entity should be giving out taxpayers money to any group for any purporse. Our tax money is supposed to be used for the common defense and to support goverment programs such as law enforcement and dealing with foreign governments. Yet most left wing NGOS are now funded by taxpayer's money. Some brag that they now have perpetual funding built into agency budgets. Clinton's Sec. of Health and human Servicdes, Donna Shelala gave Louis Farakan's Nation of Islam's New Black Panther Army $16 million to "provide security and teach self esteem classes in public housing projects." The amount doled out to all these anti American organizations is not being report. Some one needs to go through these agency budgets and expose this travesty. The American taxpayer is paying for these "days of rage" demonstrations in the streets.
