Blood Libels from Israel-Hating Students in Florida


Pages: 1 2

The ZOA has a legitimate point. In 2010, after six years of campaigning, they got the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) to clarify that Jewish students finally would merit the same protection “against exclusion from participation in, denial of benefits of, and discrimination under federally assisted programs on ground of race, color, or national origin” that Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act confers on all minorities. Thus, it is possible that FAU, due to its official sanction of the notices, may be in violation of federal law.

Yet FAU remains defiant. In announcing the conclusion of their investigation, the university claimed it had taken “appropriate corrective steps” with staffers who approved the notices–even as they refused to detail those steps, citing the tiresomely familiar excuse that the university does not comment on personnel matters. An email released by Charles Brown echoes that opaqueness, but offers up yet another familiar fallback position for university administrators: moral equivalence. “We have received disturbing reports of threats, hostility and intolerance from and against fellow members of our community in connection with these postings,” it states, implying those who posted the notices have been as intimidated as those who received them. Again, since no details are provided, we are forced to accept Mr. Brown at his word.

Yet further on in the email the senior vice president for Student Affairs demonstrates a startling disconnect from reality: “We can confirm that, although the postings failed to comply with University policy and should not have been distributed as they were, we have found no evidence that the postings were intended to target or intimidate individuals of any particular religion, national origin or faith” (bold in the original). Why? Because the postings were “distributed randomly.”

Utter nonsense, and Mr Brown is well aware of it. ZOA met with him in 2011 and made him aware of the SJP’s growing radicalization, including the fact that their leader, Noor Fawzy, had been involved with organizing “Miami’s Third Intifada Rally for Palestine” and a “Freedom Flotilla II” rally. Video of Fawzy chanting, “Long live the Intifada” and “from the river to the sea Palestine will be free” can be seen here. Furthermore, there is no mistaking the meaning of the word “intifada,” which is a call for a “violent uprising,” nor the implication behind “from the river to the sea Palestine will be free,” which is a call for the annihilation of the Jewish State. As for the flotilla, it was the second attempt by hard-left, anti-Israeli activists to break an Israeli naval blockade aimed at preventing the arming of Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

Overt anti-Semitism is hardly confined to FAU. Rutgers University is investigating an incident in which the Daily Medium, a student-funded newspaper, published a “mock” article in its April 4th edition. “What About the Good things that Hitler Did?” falsely attributed authorship to conservative Jewish student Aaron Marcus, whose grandparents lost family in the Holocaust. Prof. Ronald Miskoff, an advisor to the newspaper, defended both the article and the false attribution, contending that “permission is not required for a parody” and that Marcus “is a columnist for the Daily Targum and also a public person.”

In both of these incidents and numerous others, the protagonists’ position is that they are exercising their First Amendment rights, and aside from the limitations imposed by Title VI, they are undoubtedly correct. But it has become clear that a mystifying double standard with respect to Jewish students exists on today’s campuses. The fact of the matter is, not all minority groups are treated equally at the university. For some, it is open season, which allows those who oppose and despise the Jewish homeland to spread their hate and lies delegitimizing its existence totally unimpeded. Imagine if, for example, the College Republicans circulated “random” eviction notices to students to promote “awareness” about illegal immigration. Or sent students “pink slips” informing them that they lost their campus job because it had been given to an illegal immigrant. Undoubtedly such expressions of free speech would be condemned as racist, invariably followed by an investigation into the “targeting” of Hispanic students.

At the very least, FAU owes their Jewish students an official, university-sanctioned apology for the part it played in abetting campus radicalism directed at a specific group.  The “random distribution” excuse is a pathetically weak explanation that would neither be offer or accepted by any university, if virtually any other group were the target of posted eviction notices. Calls to other university officials, most notably Mr. Brown and university president Dr. Mary Jane Saunders, went unanswered. The aforementioned email was deemed sufficient communication regarding the incident. It isn’t.

Duck and cover never is.

  • The Infidel

    Can you imagine the outrage if someone posted notices that declared that all mosques must be shut down and all muslims must be evicted from any non arabian penisular country? Harse? So is this reality: in the arabian penisular they distroy non islamic places of worship, refuse to allow non muslim places of worship to even be build, arrest non muslims for the simple act of worshiping as their concious dictates, execute those who leave islam.

    Do you leftards really want to go down this path? or will you completely ignore the truth and hurl insults (which by the way I laugh at).

    • Stephen_Brady

      Yours is one of the best responses in this thread. I noticed that the Left really had nothing to say to you. Indeed, what could they say?

  • Larry

    If I was a student on campus these days I wouldn't last long, I'd be booted for punching out genocidists, exactly as they deserve.

  • rachaelamb

    It's unbelievable to me so much of the world supports the Palestinians. When most of them support the destruction of Israel, and the death and destruction of the Jewish people inside Israel. I can understand the Arabs and the Muslims supporting them. But why Europeans? Will they still feel the same way when the Muslims take over, and impose sharia law on them,and they have to convert to Islam, or be murdered? Now it looks like the poison of antiisrael sentiment sadly is spreading to America. With the help of Arab and third world immigration promoted largely by the Obama administration.

    • findalis

      One word: Anti-Semitism.

      Europeans cannot openly say they hate the Jews. But it is acceptable to say they hate Israel. It is the same hatred, different wording.

    • aspacia

      rach,

      European antiSemitism is ancient.

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    From the River to the Sea,

    Meanwhile the Assad family dictatorship of Syria has killed 9,000 Syrians.

    Where are the demonstrations by leftists, socialist, sociopaths, FAKE "anti-war" cultists outside Syrian embassies, consulates?

    None. Wonder why? The Assad dictatorship is one of their own genocidal tyrants – like stalin and Socialist SHlTler.

    • Raymond in DC

      Yep. They defend their own. Even after Al-Bashir of Sudan was charged with war crimes and genocide, he was welcomed in Turkey. Erdogan defended him against the charge of genocide, insisting "Muslims don't engage in genocide." Case closed as far as he's concerned. (Note: Obama's favorite leader in the region is … Turkey's Erdogan.)

    • zionista

      Jew haters never go after blood thirsty savage muslims

  • Eric

    This is definitely a hate crime of immature Arabs taking an advantage of certain freedoms in academical environment. I suggest to squire off this long conflist on the a battlefield! Come on! Get into uniforms and show to Israel your hostility the way all wars were conducted. The winner takes it all!

    • stern

      That's exactly why they won't! If they get into uniforms, they can't claim Israel kills civilians. If they fight a war the way wars have always been fought, they will lose and won't be able to go crying to the UN. So they take advantage of international anti-Semitism and play the victim – and they win, time and time again, as this article demonstrates.

    • Clay

      Good idea, but they already won Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and East Jerusalem in the '67 War.

  • Gamaliel

    Someone should post notices that state "You have been caught selling your home to a Jew. You will be killed"

    • stern

      That is a brilliant suggestion!

    • StephenD

      Or set up appointments for Genital Mutilation. After all, we wouldn't want a woman to get pleasure from a healthy sexual relationship. You wouldn't be able to control her! That is her place in Islam, is it not? Israel has no idea how to control its women. Why, in Israel, they get to walk without permission of a male relative, outside of their homes! They are allowed an education, work, why they even get to marry whom they choose!! Can you believe it?!?

    • TimN

      My thoughts too- "Your sister has exposed her face and will have acid thrown in it","Your Mosque will be burned to the ground by a band of hate crazed Christians protesting your unclean presence",or "Your airplane will be hijacked and flown into skyscrapers", "Your home will be demolished by a missile launched from the cover of a bunch of civilians", "Your family will be blown up by a lunatic wearing a bomb" etc etc ad nauseum.
      How about this- We could post some flyers offering a free clitorectomy to any of those unclean 'whores' who are so unislamic as to expect enjoyment from sex.
      The possibilities are endless. Let's roll out the flyers and hand it back to them *grins*
      Naaaahhhh that would be Islamophobic and racist wouldn't it.

    • American Thinker

      This happens in the Palestinian terror-tories now. Arabs are prosecuted for selling land to Jews.

  • oldtimer

    Isn't this a form of hate crime? If it were the other way around, the Jewish/or Christian students would have been suspended or expelled. ALL of Israel belongs to Judah(Gen. 13:14,15) forever.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    These posted notices are and open threat and should be dealt with by the Police, the housing authority
    if acting in support even as a tour guide through the dorms are complicit and of course idiots. What are
    the Palestinian barbarians doing in America at all, they are our enemies…………………William

    • StephenD

      The DOJ will get right on it as soon as they're done with the Black Panthers posting a "Wanted – Dead or Alive" poster, wqith a reward, on Zimmerman.

      I'm not holding my breath.

      • WilliamJamesWard

        DOJ under Holder and Obama, useless………..hopefully the students parents will file and appropriate
        law suit against the College…………….William

    • jacob

      This FAU official who had one of his staff accompaning this woman to post such notices, BE
      FIRED and this woman expelled from FAU….First Ammendment or else…..

      Of course, it is more than actually possible FAU as many more educational institutions, is getting
      Arab money to allow such to happen, as candidly confessed once by a Saudi ambassador….and
      given the degree of corruption we've reached in this country, EVERYTHING is possible.

      Then, it is up to the people to put up with this crap or eliminate it…..

      • WilliamJamesWard

        You are absolutely right Jacob……….there must be a way to get them out of the Country maybe
        force the Authorities to void their visas, after the next election. I can't stand the sight of
        them and have no patience with the enemies of our Nation moving about freely, and yes we
        must eliminate the crap…………………………………William

  • jacob

    I guess all those Jewish DEMOCRAPS, contributors to OBAMA's war chest and voters for his reelection
    should pitch in and bring this issue all the way to the Supreme Court if need be, in order to teach these
    people a lesson that will go all the way to what is going on at every university in the USA.
    And as to this this appointed public official who allowed one of his staff to accompany that woman in her posting such notices,same as the hell raised by rabble rousers AL SHARPTON and JESSE JACKSON
    in the ZIMMERMANN case, Governor SCOTT of Florida should be asked to fire him as a matter of
    principle as such conduct shouldn't be allowed and whether this guy hates Israel or just Jews is his
    problem but I will not accept his using his post to do it.
    PERIOD

  • scotsirish

    …………This is how it all began in Germany.
    University officials are uneducated ? in these matters? and the parents of these students have failed to teach their children of the insidious evil that reigned in Europe during the 30's and the 40's. There should have been posters of the pictures from the Holocaust Memorial Day placed on the doors of the offenders and their leaders at the University. Shame on you Florida. Heads should have rolled over this. Instead, excuses and crickets from the powers that be. Cowards!

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

      A lot of things are happening the way they started in Germany.

      Any student of history should be horrified.

    An officially approved form of Fascism has come to America. Congratulations academics, you are now bona fide Nazis. When should the Fuhrer's representatives drop by to pick up his honorary degree?

  • Fred

    Tear down these eviction notices and start KICKING SOME ASS. That is the only thing these savage respect and understand. If I was there I would be taking down these notices and dare anyone to stop me.

    And the university will not assist the Jewish students at all. Can't the university be sued? The Department of Injustice will not step in and help the students as they support the anti-Jewish acts especially the white hating Eric Holder and his protector BARRY the illegal President.

  • ealha3

    Unfortunately, the "response" by those victims and their supporters is so lame it only encourages further efforts to victimize and deligitimize what is obvious legitimate to the knowledgeable. What is sorely needed is a legal response, without depending on apologies or "clarifications" etc. It is illegal to advocate violence or the commission of an illegal act. Those organizations and individuals who advocated participation in the illegal flotilla should be prosecuted and sued. They should also be sued for eviction notices intending the unlawful infliction of emotional distress. Unfortunately, there is no such legal alternative – ignorant is as ignorant does or allows – we just keep saying – "Gee, this is so awful….". I say, get organized and sue the bastards!

  • Schlomotion

    I am disappointed. The title of this article promised "Blood Libels." This was quickly reduced to "modern day blood libels." This was further reduced to ZOA was angry that pro-Palestinians hung up some fliers at a university. This kind of crying wolf coupled with bait and switch, I believe, causes antisemitism.

  • montlasky

    When you have a country inundated with people from Islamist countries and then given education at it's universities, where the number of Islamist students outnumbers other non infidel students the task of fighting this "inequalty" becomes more and more difficult to contain, especially where the university authorities are in cahoots with the guilty parties.and racial hate mongers on campus. Surely Jewish and non Jewish students (Christian?)and others can form their own groups to counter the hateful Isalmists? or are the infidels hiding under their beds afraid to rock the boat? If this is the case, the Islamists will control not only academic institutions in the US but sooner or later the US itself!
    "Peace in our time" is what the Islamists feed on. Our weaknesses!!

  • guest

    expel terrorists from the country

  • neils60

    I wonder how many Jewish students found this act of placing these posters on the dorm doors offensive? From my experience, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if some Jewish students not only didn't object, but supported the so-called activists, a.k.a. hate monger's, cause. Why, because they've converted to the religion of "progressivism" without having a clue what Judaism is, or what progressives really stand for. Having worked with younger Jewish children over the years, this is what I've observed, and it's getting a lot worse.

  • politicaljules

    The article is a bit wordy for the topic that needs to be addressed. the reader is forced into a massive amount of only slightly related information. This story could have been broken into at least 5 or 6 other stories.

    The avalanche of over information was a bit too much.

    • stern

      Your post was too wordy for the topic it addressed. In fact, I wonder why you posted at all. You could have saved yourself the time it took to read the article and to post your completely irrelevant bit of fluff.

  • Deziderio

  • jordanariel

    There was mention about illegally using the copy of the official seal of Palm Beach County. I think they should go after "Noor Floozy" (i mean fawzy) and her group legally.

    The fact that an official from the college WENT WITH the people who were posting the fliers is also something that should be looked at.

    They are lucky i dont live in Boca Raton anymore (i used to) (I was also 12 at the time)

  • Juddea

    How about a notice that all gay people will be stoned in town sq or that women who expose an inch of skin, walk down the street with a man not in her family, or a women caught reading a book, or a women who dares to speak her mnd will be immediately put to death. Not to target women, gay people or muslims, but to call attention to what it would be like to live under Sharia law. Although I am not sure I would shed a single tear if this fate caught up with Miss Noor Fawzy, after all she is litteraly asking for it.

  • Ghostwriter

    I hate to break to Schlobrain and his pals but this is stupid. This whole thing is little more than a publicity stunt for a bunch of anti-semites. In fact,Schlomotion would fit in perfectly with the FAU. They seem to have no problem targeting Jews,so does he. Bad birds of a feather flock together.

    • Schlomotion

      At least I do not make everyone touch the Blutbeleidigung before going to war against Islam.

  • Ronald Johnston

    I can't understand anybody who calls for the death of anybody else. They are simply barbarians and should be treated as such. They need to be deported to the country of their origin and the country needs to be isolated from the civilized world. We have a small minority of liberals in this country who need to go with them. They do not deserve the grandness of this country!!!!

  • graptolite

    Why aren't these activists concerned about returning New Mexico the Navajo; or Silesia to the Germans;or Istanbul to the Byzantines-the answer is because their motivation stems from hatred of jews-anybody can see this if they want to. Any land a jew lives on will always be "occupied" to a jew hater. Call a spade a spade.

    These are not students…they are idiots, brainwashed morons pretending to be getting an education. If you jerks don't like it here…. move to Somalia or Sudan and luxuriate in the squalor of barbaric conditions.

  • Danny

    What about the eviction notice was targeting Jews? It was about the Israeli government evicting Palestinians. A tasteless protest, but in this case not anti-Semitic.

    • American Thinker

      A school official accompanied the HATERS who created these fliers to tape them on the doors of hundreds of JEWISH students. Young kids who were TERRIFIED. Singled out due to religion. Get it?

    We, or should I say I, will also die in defense of Israel here is South Africa. In the campus I was a student at too this Israel Apartheid Week is held as well and believe me there is too much brainwashing going on to believe one side and this acts is condoned by some authorities.

  • Schlomotion

    I accept your statement in its entirety and wholeheartedly agree. It is obnoxious to single out Jews for this kind of protest, unless they were all members of Campus Watch or something. If I were a regular old student, not in any Zionist political groups and someone hung this on my door, I would have gone down to their headquarters and asked them what the hell they think they are doing. I agree that the activists are full of it.

  • Schlomotion

    All of these protesters are slow witted. I would have looked through the peephole until she arrived and then swung the door open really fast and mashed shaving cream in her face. All you have to say later is "she was trying to serve me an eviction notice under color of law."
