Leftist Jewish Group Joins Muslim Students in Condemning Israeli Ambassador’s Speech

Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), a leftist group that specializes in opposing Israel through boycotts, petitions and divestment campaigns, is insisting that criminal charges be filed against them for something they did not do, apparently because they want to feel good about themselves by showing how much they hate speech if it happens to be speech on behalf of Israel. This is a perfect example of the sort of unreasonable, childish, oppressive behavior the Left is willing to engage in for the sole purpose of hating a group of people they wrongly accuse of hating others. In this case, as is so often what we find, the object of leftist hatred is Israel.
JVP is angry that 11 members of the Muslim Student Union were charged with what District Attorney Tony Rackauckus referred to as an “organized attempt to squelch the speaker” in their protest against a speech by Israeli Ambassador to the United States at UC Irvine last year. Why would a Jewish group offer such strong support for an organization whose own events regularly include speakers who advocate the destruction of Israel?
MSU’s hatred of Jews and Israel is profound. At the organization’s on-campus events, its members commonly wear green armbands to signal their allegiance to the terrorist group Hamas. MSU also has displayed posters on the UCI campus that equate the Star of David with the Nazi Swastika.
Al-Asi advocates an “Islamic World Order” and claims that the 9/11 attacks were actually carried out by Israeli Mossad agents seeking to “criminalize Muslims.” He is also closely associated with the neo-Nazi Swiss convert to Islam, Ahmed Huber, who lauded Ayatollah Khomeini as the “living continuation of Adolf Hitler.”
The roots of Islamic anti-Semitism dated all the way back to the infancy of the Islamic faith. Indeed the Koran itself, along with Islam’s most vital and revered interpretive literature, calls on Muslims to universally shun, despise, oppress, and even kill the Jewish people. Islam’s founder, the Prophet Muhammad, was the living embodiment of this injunction.
