Combating the Hate Groups on Campus

Pages: 1 2

To counter the hate, disinformation and propaganda generated during Israeli Apartheid Week (what should more honestly be called Israeli Demonization Week) at universities across the United States, the David Horowitz Freedom Center (DHFC) is arming pro-Israel and pro-freedom student leaders on campus with the truth, in the form of its newspaper ads, pamphlets, film screenings, and speakers such as Nonie Darwish, Raymond Ibrahim, David Meir-Levi, and Horowitz himself.

A controversial DHFC ad appeared last week in the campus newspapers of Florida State University and the University of Arizona, and the Freedom Center has plans to place it in at least one hundred more. Entitled “Where Are They Now?,” it consists simply of a long list of nearly twenty former leaders and members of the Muslim Students Association (MSA) who have graduated to terrorist entities such as al-Qaeda, Hamas, the Taliban, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

Among them are such standouts of Islamic terrorism as “bin Laden 2.0” Anwar al-Awlaki (former MSA President at Colorado State University); American al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn (member of the MSA at the University of Southern California); the infamous Underwear Bomber (former head of the Muslim Association at the University College London); convicted terrorist supporter Abdul Rahman Alamoudi (former MSA National President); Ramy Zamzam, convicted of attempting to join the Taliban and kill U.S. troops (former president of Washington D.C.’s council of Muslim associations); Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas associate Jamal Barzini (co-founder of the MSA); Abu Mansoor al-Amriki (MSA President of the University of South Alabama), spokesman for al-Qaeda in Somalia; and more. The list speaks for itself as ample evidence that the MSA has less to do with serving student needs than recruiting for violent jihad.

A shorter version of that ad recently stirred up controversy on the campus of Ohio State University, where it was condemned as hate speech by a Muslim student who nevertheless could not contradict the factuality of the ad’s content, and who ironically has her own connections to Muslim Brotherhood entities CAIR and Hamas. She lashed out at The Lantern, the student paper that published the ad, but a faculty adviser for The Lantern said the newspaper “can reject advertising that denigrates individuals, groups or organizations based on such things as race, nationality, ethnicity and religion.”

“In this,” he said, “the adviser and co-chair of the publications committee agreed that the ad did not violate the policy.”

The Lantern certainly gave the DHFC a fairer shake than it will have a chance to get at many universities, if MediaMate has its way. MediaMate is a company that manages national advertising for its nearly one hundred client universities like Brown, Colgate, UC San Diego, Boston University, Swarthmore, Temple, and Indiana University. On their website they proudly announce that, “When it comes to college advertising, we are the college.”

    Political correctness has millions of young people constantly trying to qualify as "good" by making them fearful of being ostracized for vague 'sins' like cutural insensitivity. No one is more concerned with acceptance in general than people in high school and college, which makes them susceptible to the fallacies of multiculturalism. Enter the Islamists, who use this culturally forced acceptance to push their agenda of indoctrination, using taxpayer dollars. The Left set it up, and the Muslims now capitalize on this environment to inculcate young people into their cult…. the same Muslims who behead gays and relegate women to second class citizens. What happened to the Left's cherished politically correct values?

    Go to the Bible for absolute truth which proves was authored by God. Any conflict with Biblical truth is an agrument that God will not lose!
    True Christianity does not spawn hate since they see everey individual as created in God's image who can be eternally redeemed by a changed heart when exposed to the absolute truth.

    Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant! At last a solar plexus punch to the campus Muslim fanatics who have now been proven to be terrorists, murderers, hate mongers, jihadists and most of all Israel bashers and vitriolic anti Semites. Well done the Freedom Center! Let's have more of this exposure from your readers as well and rid the world university campuses of this filth! This is one great step for tertiary education and one great step on behalf of the "world's infidels" to emerge from the darkness that is created by these awful hate mongers and an even greater step for world Jewery. Congratulations!

    and once again, we see the hypocrisy of the left. Free speech for Muslims, anti-Semites and Israel bashers, but no free speech for anyone who disagrees with them. Just goes to show how much the truth scares them.

      What do you mean, hypocrisy? The dissenters got their ad published.

    Mohammad himself acted blasphemy on Allah by claiming himself as the last prophet and limiting Allah's power to send other prophets after his death. Basically the leaders of different Islam branches can be treated as prophets as well, therefore all Muslims should denounce Mohammad and his books.

    Leftists/Progressists/Socialists seizeUS Educational system. The most professors and teachers are member of Union. Union is a school of communism by definition of V. Lenin, Leader of Russian Bolshevicks Revolution in1917. Leftists followed and use Russian communists recepies. They control youth, control Media and have Unions for organize and control mass. Islam and communism/socialism are two very alike political ideology/religion. They want to get power over all the World. Saudi Arabia finance US the most prestiges Univercities: Yale, Horward, Stanford, etc to promote Islam. Who pays those order the music, you know. Our country is in such a danger. Thank you so much David Horovitz for all what you do to defend our country from destraction from whithin.

    My hope – for the next generation – is that they'll remember and take into account – a simple fcat (and that they'll cheerish and protect from their hearts – for their own sakes)

    Freedom of religion (and speech) NEVER included the right to incite the masses into violence. If the young generation of today clings to such wisdom – they'll do well….for themselves and for their own children.

    My hope for the next generation – is that they'll remember (and keep in mind) that freedom of religion (and speech) NEVER included the right to incite the masses into violence. This is important and the founders of the laws of America obviously thought so also:

    Article. IV. Section. 4 of the Constitution of the United States of America

    The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

    If you have a family that you love (you're blessed) you'll defend humane teachings (and laws).

    Anything that threatens '''''''''''''''universal'''''''''''''''''''''' laws that protect personal freedoms for every individual – is your enemy.

    While I prefer the Bible to the Quran and Christianity to Islam, I know of no VERIFIABLE evidence for the actual existence of any god. Christianity doesn't threaten me, but Islam is a far, far greater threat to the peace and well-being of mankind than Fascism and Communism ever were. IT IS AN AWFUL CULT whose so-called 'Prophet' lied, plotted, murdered, robbed, ransomed and rape his way to power.

    As Bertrand Russell succinctly put it. "Over a billion people believe in Allah without knowing what he stands for or demands. The minority do understand have redefined their morality to fit in with the teachings of Islam which is floridly lacking in morality. It is backward thinking imposed by a backward religion."

    Wonderful article, Mark. The truth shall set them free.

    On campus, a mocking humor would be most effective.
