Jewish Students Threatened at UC Davis

Editor’s note: The following is the text of a letter written by Leila Beckwith and Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, co-founders of the AMCHA Initiative, to UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi regarding the university’s silence and inaction in the face of anti-Jewish hostility during a recent student protest.

Dear Chancellor Katehi,

As you know, we are faculty members at the University of California, who have been investigating and documenting anti-Jewish bigotry on California public university campuses for the last several years.

We are writing to you now to express our serious concern regarding an incident that occurred during a student protest on November 19, 2012, during which UCD students “occupied” an administration building on campus. We believe that numerous violations of state and federal law and university policy may have occurred at the event.  To our knowledge, your administration has neither acknowledged nor addressed these violations.

In addition, it appears that at least 5 university administrators, including the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, were present and witnessed much of this behavior, yet they did not take action to ensure the safety of the students who were targets of possible assault and hate crimes. Please see below for an account of the events as well as the federal and state laws and university policies which were potentially violated as a result of them.

Detailed Account of Events

Takeover of Dutton Hall

We have learned the following from newspaper articles, on-line videos, and conversations with Jewish students who attended the rally on the East Quad and the subsequent “occupation” of Dutton Hall.

At 12:30pm on November 19, a rally entitled “March in Solidarity with Gaza,” sponsored by the Graduate Student Association, began on the East Quad. (See HERE for an announcement of the rally).

At approximately 2pm, about 40 of the protesters marched from the East Quad to Dutton Hall, where they hung a larger banner that read “DAVIS+GAZA ARE ONE FIST” from the building’s entryway and “occupied” the building’s entrance hall. Several protesters held anti-Israel and anti-Zionist signs and large banners, two of which read “DEATH TO ZIONISM” and “LONG LIVE THE INTIFADA!”

The occupation leaders refused entry to Jewish students who were known to identify with the Jewish state, and at least one Jewish student associated with a pro-Israel group on campus reported that when he tried to enter Dutton Hall at the beginning of the “occupation,” a rally organizer physically blocked his entry through the front doors and refused to let him pass, because he was a “Zionist.”

At about 2:15pm, three Jewish students managed to slip into Dutton Hall, and one of them proceeded to film the discussion taking place inside the “occupied” entrance hall. Although a chief complaint of the “occupiers” was that pro-Palestinian students were being stifled on campus and not afforded their constitutionally-guaranteed right to freedom of speech, nevertheless, several times in the 20 minutes of the rally captured on video, the “occupiers” themselves expressed the sentiment that “Zionists,” including pro-Israel students at UCD, should not be given freedom of speech. For example, when a Jewish student wanted to know whether free speech could involve a civil discussion between pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian perspectives, the leader answered, “I would say absolutely not. I would never discuss anything with Hitler.  He is our enemy…there’s no question of free speech when it comes to the Nazis. And the KKK, when they march in Sacramento and the cops defend them…you should not talk to these white supremacist, racist, mother-fuckers.”

Escalation of the Protest

At about 2:30pm the rally leader said, “I just want everyone to know that there are Zionists filming everything we’re saying, and I think we should ask them to leave.” Several protesters demanded that the Jewish students leave the public building, loudly chanting “Leave our space” and “Shame on you” repeatedly, and accusing the Jewish students of “hate speech” because of their support for Israel (see HERE).

After the Jewish student stopped filming, most of the 40 protesters surrounded the Jewish students, who were standing up against a wall of windows, and screamed “Death to Israel,” “Fuck Israel,” and other curses. For about 10 minutes the protesters, many of whom stood 1 to 2 feet away from the Jewish students, continued to scream at the Jewish students to leave Dutton Hall and pounded their fists into their hands in a threatening way. Although the Jewish students were not physically harmed, they reported feeling physically and emotionally harassed and threatened until they finally managed to leave the building.

When an Aggie photographer who had photographed the confrontation inside the hall followed the Jewish students outside for comments and contact information, protesters at the rally turned on him and demanded to see his photos of the physical confrontation and that he delete them.  Aggie staff members were also told by protesters that unless they were on the side of the “occupiers,” they would also have to leave the administration building.

See article written by an Aggie staff member HERE. In the article, the staff member asserts, “We witnessed many students…[end] up leaving, disgusted, as soon as the bullying began. Free speech is crucial. Ideally, our campus would be rife with protests, counter-protests and open dialogue regularly. But if students are scared to speak — scared of other students who resort to intimidation tactics — we have a serious problem.”

At approximately 2:45pm, after a student in Dutton Hall expressed disagreement with one of the protest signs, a protester grabbed his collar, raised his fist and forced the student to leave the building.

UCD and Staff Member Witnesses of Event

According to a student outside of Dutton Hall at the time of the “occupation,” 3 UCD administrators (the Vice Chancellor and 2 Associate Vice Chancellors of Student Affairs) and 2 staff members associated with the Center for Student Involvement were right outside the building during the “occupation.” According to one of the 3 Jewish students surrounded by protesters inside Dutton Hall, since she and her friends were standing against a bank of windows which were in full view of those standing outside, she believed the 5 administrators and staff members could see them being harassed and intimidated by the mob of protesters.

The administrators and staff standing outside did nothing to help the 3 Jewish students, but when they exited the building, one of the administrators asked one of the students if she was OK, which suggests that the administrator had witnessed the violent behavior of the protestors but did not take action. The Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, who it appears also witnessed the protestors’ behavior toward the Jewish students, spoke earlier that afternoon at the rally on the East Quad, where she was quoted as saying: “I will not permit violence to occur in the context of free speech.” There were no other administrators, staff or faculty present at the rally inside Dutton Hall, and at no time did any campus police appear in or near the hall.

Violations of Federal, State, and University Policy

We would like to bring to your attention the following aspects of this deeply troubling series of events:

1) We believe that incidents of this sort have the potential to create liability under the following legal authority:

• Civil assault (Restatement 2d, Torts §21) - “An actor is subject to liability to another for assault if (a) he acts intending to cause a harmful or offensive contact with a person, or an imminent apprehension of such a contact, and (b) the other is thereby put in such imminent apprehension.”

• Civil battery (Restatement 2d, Torts §13,18) - “An actor is subject to liability to another for battery if (a) he acts intending to cause a harmful or offensive contact with a person, and (b) harmful or offensive contact with the person directly results.”

• Criminal assault (CA Penal Code 240) - Assault is “an unlawful attempt, coupled with a present ability, to commit a violent injury on the person of another.” To be charged with criminal assault, physical contact is not required.  A person must simply place another in reasonable fear of immediate bodily harm.

• Criminal battery (CA Penal Code 242) - Battery is “any willful and unlawful use of force or violence upon the person of another.”

• Disturbing the peace (CA Penal Code 415(3) - It is illegal to “…maliciously and willfully disturb another person by loud and unreasonable noise…[and to] use offensive words in a public place which are inherently likely to provoke an immediate violent reaction.” In other words, it is illegal to use “offensive words” that “necessarily invite a breach of the peace.”

• CA Civil Code 51.7 “The Ralph Civil Rights Act” - “All persons within the jurisdiction of this state have the right to be free from any violence, or intimidation by threat of violence, committed against their persons or property because of their race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, political affiliation, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, or position in a labor dispute, or because another person perceives them to have one or more of those characteristics.”

• CA Civil Code 52.1 “The Bane Civil Rights Act” -  “If a person or persons, whether or not acting under color of law, interferes by threats, intimidation, or coercion, or attempts to interfere by threats, intimidation, or coercion, with the exercise or enjoyment by any individual or individuals of rights secured by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or of the rights secured by the Constitution or laws of this state, the Attorney General, or any district attorney or city attorney may bring a civil action for injunctive and other appropriate equitable relief in the name of the people of the State of California, in order to protect the peaceable exercise or enjoyment of the right or rights secured.”

• CA Penal Code 422.6 - “No person, whether or not acting under color of law, shall by force or threat of force, willfully injure, intimidate, interfere with, oppress, or threaten any other person in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him or her by the Constitution or laws of this state or by the Constitution or laws of the United States in whole or in part because of one or more of the actual or perceived characteristics of the victim.”

• Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act – Prohibits discrimination on the grounds of race, color, or national origin in programs or activities receiving Federal financial assistance.

 

2) We believe the protesters’ behavior may have violated the following UC Davis policies and principles:

 

• UC Standards of Conduct for Students 102.06 -  prohibiting the “unauthorized possession…of any University properties.”

• UC Standards of Conduct for Students 102.08 -  prohibiting  “physical assault, including threats of violence, or other conduct that threatens the health or safety of a person.”

•  UC Standards of Conduct for Students 102.09 - prohibiting racial and other forms of harassment, defined as “conduct that is so severe…objectively offensive, and so substantially impairs a person’s access to University programs or activities, that the person is effectively denied equal access to the University’s resources and opportunities on the basis of his or her race…national or ethnic origin, alienage, religion…or perceived membership in any of these classifications.”

• UC Policies Applying to Campus Activities, Organizations and Students (PACAOS) Section 30 - “The University is committed to assuring that all persons may exercise the constitutionally protected rights of free expression, speech, assembly, and worship…It is the responsibility of the Chancellor to assure an ongoing opportunity for the expression of a variety of viewpoints.”

•  UC Davis Policies and Procedures Manual Ch. 270 Section 05(C) -  “The University prohibits illegal, arbitrary, or unreasonable discriminatory practices. Campus organizations receiving University privileges, assistance, or supervision must abide by the University’s policy on nondiscrimination to qualify for any University privileges or assistance.”

• UC Davis Policies and Procedures Manual Ch. 270 Section 20 - Public expression in the form of freedom of speech and advocacy may be exercised on University properties at such times and places and in such a manner as is compatible with the use of the property and as follows: 1) Assures orderly conduct; 2) Avoids disruption or interference with University operations; 3) Allows for the free flow of persons and traffic; 4) Avoids disruption or interference with the ability of the University to carry out its responsibilities as an educational institution; 5) Protects the rights of all individuals who use University properties; 6) Protects persons against practices that would make them involuntary audiences; 7) Assures the safety of all members of the University community; 8)  Does not interfere with property entrances or exits.

• UC Davis Student Judicial Affairs Statement on Free Expression - “Efforts to quell unpopular opinions (e.g., by shouting down a speaker) stifle discourse and cut off dialogue…Even legal acts of intolerance and incivility erode our capacity to trust, and to work, live, and learn together…We can uphold both the need for respect and understanding and the right of free speech by responding appropriately to each incident. Crimes must be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent, and infringement of civil rights must be addressed by campus administrative processes and/or state or federal agencies. Discriminatory acts or violations of campus conduct standards, including disruption, are subject to disciplinary sanctions or grievances.”

•  UC Davis Principles of Community - “strives to maintain a climate of justice marked by respect for each other….affirms the right of freedom of expression…and commitment to the highest standards of civility and decency towards all…recognizing the right of every individual to think and speak as dictated by personal belief, to express any idea, and to disagree with or counter another’s point of view… promoting open expression of our individuality and our diversity within the bounds of courtesy, sensitivity and respect.” In addition UC Davis vows to “confront and reject all manifestations of discrimination, including those based on race, ethnicity…religious or political beliefs, status…or any of the other differences among people which have been excuses for misunderstanding, dissension or hatred…striving to build a true community based on mutual respect and caring.”

 

3) We believe the UCD administrators and staff members who witnessed the illegal and unethical behavior of the protestors but did not take action may have been negligent in carrying out their administrative responsibilities:

 

• The Vice Chancellor and 2 Associate Vice Chancellors of Student Affairs who witnessed the “occupation” are responsible for Student Judicial Affairs, whose role is to enforce community standards and campus codes of conduct. As noted above, the protestors were in blatant violation of several UC policies which have the primary goal of ensuring student safety.  Evidence points to the fact that the administrators were aware of most, if not all, of these violations, and that student safety was being threatened as a result of their inaction.

• Two staff members from the UCD Center for Student Involvement witnessed the “occupation.” CSI avows that it promotes the UC Davis Principles of Community, which affirm the right of freedom of expression within the Davis community and its commitment to the highest standards of civility and respect, by helping students learn from each other in a safe and constructive environment.  However, during the solidarity rally, the protestors were in blatant violation of the Principles of Community in addition to violating 7 UCD students’ rights of free expression.  Protestors also failed to treat these students with civility and respect. The staff members from this department did not ensure a safe and constructive environment for students when they failed to intervene during a student group’s assault, harassment and violation of fellow students’ rights.

 

Outcome of the Events

Jewish UCD students, within sight of UCD administrators and on public university property, were harassed, intimidated, and physically threatened. This is an abrogation of university policy and unlawful.

We are deeply concerned about the virulent and hate-filled actions taking place on the UCD campus as a result of students’ religion and beliefs. And we are also concerned for the safety and well-being of Jewish students who want to feel free to express their beliefs and attend public university events without fear of harm or intimidation.

As the Chancellor of UC Davis, we know that you too have these same concerns.

As a result, the following are important actions that we urge you to take now in order to protect the physical and emotional safety and civil rights of Jewish (and all) students on your campus:

• University policy must spell out actions that campus police, administrators, and staff are responsible for taking to ensure the safety and civil rights of all students, and we urge that this policy be published widely to the campus community.

• Police, administrators, and staff must be immediately informed about actions they should take and protocols they can access to afford all members of the campus community — including Jewish students — the protections that are afforded to them under University policy and state and federal law.

• Perpetrators of disruptive and threatening behavior must be identified and appropriately disciplined.

• The University Chancellor should use her First Amendment rights to consistently and publicly condemn behavior which targets other students for harassment and intimidation.

• The official status and funding of student groups that engage in behavior which targets other students for harassment and intimidation should be subject to suspension and revocation.

 

We look forward to hearing from you whether these steps can be taken to ensure that Jewish UCD students – and all UCD students – can enjoy a campus where they feel safe, protected, and able to enjoy their civil rights no matter their identity or beliefs.

You will be receiving a copy of this letter by U.S. mail.

    How do I know this? Well, being closer than close with "this and that", regarding the ISM, gives me a bird's eye view. Each and every jihadi group is tied into its umbrella and this is a fact.

    On Feb. 13th, – THREE years ago, Al-Awda (The Palestine Right to Return Coalition) held its Fifth Al-Awda West Coast Regional Conference in the La Mesa Community Center in San Diego. Undercover investigative journalist Lee Kaplan attended the meeting and wrote an article that raised several issues that should be very troubling for anyone concerned about the safety of Jewish students on California campuses.

    Are Jewish Students Safe on California Campuses?
    ~ American Thinker – http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/04/are_jewish

    Al-Awda is an organization that,opposes Israel's right to exist. Al-Awda has made significant inroads on college and university campuses in North America by partnering with dozens of Muslim and pro-Palestinian/anti-Israel student groups.

    In California, SJP and MSA groups from more than ten California public colleges and universities — including UC Los Angeles, UC San Diego, UC Irvine, UC Riverside, San Francisco State University, San Diego State University, CSU Fullerton, and CSU San Bernadino — have collaborated with Al Awda in hosting events.

  • Tan

    "…when a Jewish student wanted to know whether free speech could involve a civil discussion between pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian perspectives, the leader answered, 'I would say absolutely not. I would never discuss anything with Hitler.'"

    This person, not surprisingly, is comparing Zionism with Nazism. Why? Because in the mind of the Left, to be a Zionist is to be a right-wing extremist. That's what they're really saying. They compare Zionism and Nazism because to them they are no different; therefore anything that disagrees with the Left is a right-wing hatemonger. And that's why Nazism and Fascism are often labeled as far-right. But this of course is ridiculous, because Nazism as far as I'm aware has it's origins in Marxism. Even Marxism has a history of anti-Semitism because its anti-God attitude. And yet the Left acts like Marxism had no contribution to any injustice. They refuse to believe that their own destructive belief called Marxism gave way to unorthodox forms of Marxism (Nazism and Fascism) which in many ways were slightly different. Nazi and Communist propaganda, for example, were very close. But the Left can't acknowledge these things because they would be indicting themselves. They refuse to recognize the Nazi-Soviet Pact, as well as the Nazi-Islam Pact between Hitler and Grand Mufti al-Husseni. In my opinion, people like SJP, ISM, and other Leftists like them are also Jihadi collaborators. And when I see them waving the Palestinian flag mixed with negative destructive messages, in reality, they are really waving the black Islamic flag on the campuses.

  • Richard

    The young students who join these groups are just immature idiots who are typically rebelling against their parents or society, pot smoking, drinking, partying, sleeping around, listening to rock music and so on. They have little or no idea what the various Palestinian factions really are about – the destruction of Israel and the mass murder and/or expulsion of all Jews from Israeli territory which they hope to annex to a future Islamic state. The useful idiots on reflex support any group or movement that they perceive is rebelling against the man. The whole point of political participation among young people is the same as participation in another social or sporting or leisure organisation – to feel like like they have power and control, feel independent of their parents, belong in a club with like minded people, make friends and hook up with the opposite sex. Typically these young people in their late teens and twenties are lacking in confidence, lacking in direction, are alienated and unhappy and fearful of the future and adult responsibility. Once they finish their college education and the reality of work hits them they grow out of their embarrassing immaturity.

    • jacob

      Then it is the job of the institution authorities to enforce the law or else get the classic kick in the
      pants and if this would have ever been enforced, I'm sure we would have seen "pronto" action…

      But while the only thing is words, words, words, do not expect anything to change just because
      these people know damned well what are they against :
      A bunch of either cowards caring only for keeping their jobs, if not limping of the same foot or
      better yet, bought out by Saudi money…
      Or isn't it true that an ex-Saudi ambassador candidly declared once that the spreading of money
      among certain American circles had helped immensely Saudi interests…???????

    • gforce74

      I think this is very naive thinking Richard.

    • Parenthetical Phrase

      "Rebelling against their parents?" "Immature idiots?" "Pot smoking, drinking, partying, sleeping around, listening to rock music?" What planet are you from? Their political opinions are probably the same as their parents and their behavior cannot be cast off as just the rantings of "immature idiots who smoke pot and listen to rock music." This is outright Brownshirt facism not some rebellious youthful phase they are going through. It's not that they lack confidence, it's that they have too much of it and they know no one will stop them.They don't "lack direction". They know exactly where they are going and can't wait to get there. It's time to wake up — at least before they kill you. US universities are producing fascist, pro-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-free speech, violent, and dangerous fanatics just the way they did in Germany where they were the hotbeds of the Nazi rhetoric and ideology. Reduce this situation to a lack of self- confidence or "rebelliousness" at your own risk.

      There were 32,653 students attending UC Davis in 2011. This was 40 'brownshirt' activists seizing a building. Most of them will NOT "grow out of their embarrassing immaturity" they will instead look to intensify their radicalism, working on the left to contribute further to the "fundamental transformation" of this country.

      The administration is afraid of the muslims, therefore they won't do anything, so until those folks take a stand and fight back this will continue with impunity.

    • Parenthetical Phrase

      I would not go on a "Death To Islam" campaign — you'd be accused of Islamophobia and it would be all over the news and end up helping the Muslims. But you are right — the death to Israel and Zionists is definitely a call for genocide. It will get NO media coverage. University administrators are facing a big problem: lots of debt, fewer students and expensive tenured professors. Raise fees and you'll get lots of protests so create a scapegoat to distract attention and hopefully attract big doners from Muslim countries and organizations. Everyone knows there are too few Jews to fight back. Nobody cares about 'em anyway. This takes place at UC Irvine all the time. The Jewish professors don't utter a peep 'cause they're afraid to make waves and get their colleagues mad at them. Welcome to Germany 1933.

    "Anti-imperialists" have taken over the University of California, and their policies are predictably resulting in mayhem directed against Jewish (or other) students who fail to hate Israel. This story evokes memories of the action faction of the New Left, itself preceded by the Narodniks and other terrorists of the 19th century. We should take a long look at these predecessors and the susceptibility of adolescents to the tactics of terror on behalf of "the People." There are better models for young people in American history, for instance Charles Sumner, but they are erased on behalf of anticapitalism. See http://clarespark.com/2013/01/24/culture-wars-and….

    Repulsive, leftist activities. These kids need to be investigated, and expelled from school for the mere action of taking over an admin building. As if every single issue is SO critical that they need to "take direct action!" These stinking punks. So much for freedom of expression, and college being a place where all ideas and issues are discussed and debated. That they refused to speak to their own fellow students – the "enemy" – because they simply disagree with them on an issue, is digusting.

    But the academy was broken back in the days when Horowitz, et al., were taking over college admin buildings, wasn't it?

    These brats are very wrong on the issue of Israel, and even more wrong in regard to how they expressed themselves. They should be charged with breaking and entering and expelled.

    But the issue they had was with Zionism and Israeli policy, not Jews or Judaism.

    • ziontruth

      "But the issue they had was with Zionism and Israeli policy, not Jews or Judaism."

      As Zionism is Jewish nationalism, anti-Zionism is by necessity a form of Jew-hatred; much as the contention, for whatever reason, that the Greeks have no right to part or all of Hellas is Greek-hatred by its very nature.

      You cannot hide behind that mantle any longer. You are fooling no one. Anti-Zionism must and will be wiped off the face of the earth.

      • EarlyBird

        Wrong. You yell "anti-Semite!" to shut down any debate or criticism of Israel's foolish and sucidal policy. You throw the term around like so much confetti that it hardly has any meaning, and so sadly, real anti-Semitism is more easily dismissed.

        Many, many REAL Jews – you don't get to decide – are very much against Israel's drift into a fully militarized theocratic fascist, non-democratic apartheid state.

            Well, about half of Israel's voting public this past week didn't seem to be fixated on expanding Israel's borders or hyperventilating about Iran, but rather trying to keep employed and in peace. Maybe they're not real Jews?

            Wow. So many agitprop rhetorical flourishes into such a small space. You're well-trained.

            But your Alinksy-like response refutes your own original premise. By holding elections, Israel is demonstrated to not be a theocracy. By employing the meme of Israel "expanding its borders," you identify yourself securely in anti-Israel camp. Your hyperbolic use of the word "hyperventilating," wrt Iran, ignores the pains Israel has gone through to reduce or eliminate the very real threat Iran poses to Israel's security and world stability. Thus far, Israel has used a scalpel.

            And what do you know, they voted in favor of survival. Good for them. Hard to keep your job, when your nation is ash, or overrun by those who will not rest, until you are forced into the sea.

            Do you have a Goebbels bobble head on your monitor, perchance?

          • EarlyBird

            I shared this Economist article with you, right, about what's happening in Israel? It's sad.
            http://www.economist.com/node/16381128

            I want Israel to thrive in all ways. I think its constant gobbling up of disputed territories will not lead them to thriving. I believe the take over of her politics by right wing fanatics (who are very much like the people on this board) will destroy Israel, by turning it into a de facto theo-fascist apartheid state. There's even some right wing nutjob over there who recently said that democracy's job is to now die off so that a "true" fully Jewish state can exist.

          • reader

            " I think its constant gobbling up of disputed territories will not lead them to thriving."

            Paraphrasing Coen brothers, here's a man, here's a man, practiced in deceit and who never read a map he could understand in his life.

          • RedWhiteAndJew

            Yeah, disputed territory, like half the nation's capital, and land won after an all out attempt by islamic aggressors to annihilate the country. Israel has already returned the Gaza Strip, and look what that's gotten them.

            Israel does not need friends like you. That you keep mouthing the same bromides in Goebbel-like fashion tells me you aren't even sincere in your misplaced well-wishes for Israel. Your prescription is the same tired one which, every time Israel entertains it, ratchets the noose a little tighter.

            But such prescriptions are the rule for left-wing nutjobs.

          • EarlyBird

            I've asked this of others on this board. If not some two state solution for peace, what's the alternative? Where is the Zionist mission heading? How will Greater Israel come about?

            I had one guy on this board honestly answer it, and I appreciate it. He stated that mass expulsion of all Palestinians from disputed territories will have to occur, and he admitted that such expulsion will require mass violence, as well. He said this was written in the Torah, which is sad.

            So, what's the solution? Generations more "peace negotations" that terrorists undo with more terrorism, or a final push for Greater Israel? It's a very, very hard position to be in.

          • reader

            The solution is the same as it was in 1945: DENAZIFICATION. Wahatever brings it about. So that you know, in the process, millions of Germans were expelled from Sudetenland and Kenigsberg, to name a couple. I haven't heard any outcry about this injustice. May be, it's because it wasn't the Jews who had expelled them, eh?

          • RedWhiteAndJew

            Another common tactic, used by those who are not sincere, is to insist that the alternative is what, at least rhetorically, is pushed by their side, the alternative being something horrible. I guess we can check that box off, too.

            Just as here, Israel can only negotiate with those who do so in good faith. It is said that a people have the government they deserve. If the so-called Palestinians have chosen a leadership that dooms them to more privations, that is not Israel's fault.

            You are par for anti-Israel advocates. You pretend to extend an olive branch, but they're really disguised castor.

          • EarlyBird

            A "common tactic" is to ask plainly how you get from Point A to Point B? If you believe the Bible demands you take all of Greater Israel, is in fact the only way for Israel to survive, that all Palestinians and other Arabs are intractable enemies, then…

            What's your plan to get that Greater Israel? Mass violence, surely. I would respect you more for saying it out loud than playing the "picked on Jew!" routine. Israel is the Middle East's 800 lb. gorilla. Grow a pair.

            Hey, Israel's problem is that it was born too late. The US got away with wiping out the Native American because there were no cameras around then, and it was still considered fitting and proper to kill off savages. Now you got to deal with all this "civilization" stuff.

          • RedWhiteAndJew

            Conflation with America's history wrt to the Indians, and resorting to crude genital allusions show you are running out of ideas. That, and your introduction of a new phrase. You are the one who introduced the term "Greater Israel" to this thread. It appears nowhere in the article, and it has not been used by anyone else.

            I imagine you to be some white bread, meat 'n' potatoes, very sheltered white male American who doesn't interact much with cultures or races outside his own, who is probably loaded with all sorts of bigotries (aren't we all?)

            When you went off on reader, and admitted the stereotype you hold of him, and the membership of this forum, you really told us all we need to know. You threw the violent protesters cited in the article under the bus, because it costs you nothing to do so, since your identity is concealed. You are clearly birds of a feather, though.

            See, Mexicans were in California before Americans. Using your standard for Jews, Mexicans should be able to forcibly push Americans off their lands and businesses because they can claim their ancestors were here prior to white European-Americans.

            I can't in fact think of a BETTER equivalency, though it is being too nice to Israel. Even they admit that Israelites hadn't held claim to that land for thousands of years prior to '47, while nobody disputes that Mexicans lived there well into the 1800s as Mexican citizens.

            Both parties lost wars of conquest. So be it. But don't tell me it was an empty land that European Jews just "found," because that's a lie.

        Which means, "by default," about 98% of the world's population who are against the incessant growth of Israel at the expense of human beings living in Gaza and the West Bank are savage Jew-bullying anti-Semites, one step away from Nazis.

          • EarlyBird

            You'll notice too that Israel and Jordan get along well, because Jordan turned into a sane and responsible Arab country (not a phrase you read too often).

            Israel's problem is security, and it sees land as security. Well, that might be true about the Golan Heights or the land taken away from the security fence, but beyond that it's just Israel fooling itself.

            Palestinians and Arab Israelis are reproducing like rabbits while Jews, like most Westerners, are barely keeping up with the death rate. They are going to have to a.) finally wipe out the Palestinians and then defend THOSE new borders forever, or, b.) do something, anything, to try to bring the other side around to make peace.

            If the answer is that it is impossible to make peace, then tell the whiny Israelis to act like big boys finally, and start doing some good ol' fashioned genocide, because we're all tired of hearing about the latest "cycle of violence."

            In case you missed it in your revionist history class, the former King Hussein wiped out over 20,000 palis in less than a week and kicked out the rest because they tried to overthrow him, that is why Jordan has peace with Israel you dumbazz.

            Also, I've been a registered Republican since I was able to vote, in '84. My job here is to drag you psychopatic, paranoid old ladies out of the fever swamp.

          • RedWhiteAndJew

            BS on your service claims, but thank you for even further illustrating your anti-Semitism.

            1) Continuing to address me as "Jew."
            2) Assuming I am a lawyer. (Oh, that's not stereotyping…not at all)
            3) I don't care if you're a RINO or not. You're an anti-Semite.

          • EarlyBird

            I'm sure you've never been near a military base. If you lived in the nation you put first, Israel, you'd be one of those Orthodox bearded ones who make sure everyone else joins the IDF while you pray at the Wailing Wall, living off the dole.

            Oh and by the way, I met a lot of Muslims in Turkey and they don't have rat tails or fangs, and aren't obsessed with the destruction of the Jewish people, you paranoid little freak.

            I'm very proud of my service, and again, even you are welcome.

          • RedWhiteAndJew

            I'm sure you've never been near a military base.

            Wrong again. Perfect score so far. I live within two miles of, and have worked on, a military base.

            If you lived in the nation you put first, Israel, you'd be one of those Orthodox bearded ones…

            Really working those stereotypes, aren't we. See, this is the reason I engage with people like you: purely to flush out your Jew hate. If I go back and forth with the likes of you, it inevitably comes out.

            Oh and by the way, I met a lot of Muslims in Turkey and they don't have rat tails or fangs…

            I just did a search on this thread for use of "rat tails" and "fangs." The only use is yours. Me, paranoid? Sounds like projection to me.

            I'm very proud of my service…

            In Stormfront or the KKK perhaps. BS on the rest.

        • Parenthetical Phrase

          "incessant growth of Israel"? The Israelis have given up territory from the start. After the 6-day war, Moshe Dayan gave the Palestinian Waqf control of the Temple Mount. All Jews were removed from Gaza by the Israelis so that Hamas could shoot rockets into Israel with a clear view. Palestine is now right in the middle of Israel. Americans and Europeans need to get a taste of what retreating from your own country means so that they can understand the position Israel is in. But you, Earlybird, know well what the situation truly is. I think you just want all Jews dead. What's the matter? Are Jews just too much competition for you?

          • EarlyBird

            Sure. My disagreement with Israeli policy in 2013 is "proof" that I want all Jews dead. For that matter, my dislike of gangster rap music is "proof" that I want all black people dead. That I don't prefer tamales at Christmas time means I want to murder all Hispanics.

            Does this help, idiot?

          • RedWhiteAndJew

            That you take the position on Israel that you do, is evidence you hate Jews. That you try to analogize such with trumped up, ludicrous non-parallels is evidence that you have run out of ideas, or are disturbed.

            Of course, both scenarios could be true.

          • EarlyBird

            No, I don't hate Jews one iota. I dislike Jews like you who call anyone who disagrees with you an anti-Semite.

          • reader

            Yeah, you only lie about the Jews and deny them their right to have a state and defend themselves. How about I call you Jew hater, and don't play an insulted victim, I'm not impressed. I've seen much more sophisticated "progressive" demagogues than you'll ever hope to be.

          • RedWhiteAndJew

            Of course you do, it just is not to your rhetorical benefit at this time to admit it.

  • marios

    It is scenario of Germany 1930th. It is beginning of Holocaust and only gullible or pretend to be gullible people say " It is about Israel, not about Jews or Judaism". Yes, it is about Jews but not only. First victims historically were Jews but soon all other. All non-Muslims (Christians, Buddists, Hindues, etc) are legitimate target for Islamists as all non-Muslims are infidels and by Koran:
    "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the last day… nor acknowledge the religion of truth, and fight people of the book, until they pay Jizya (penalty tax) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
    War is ordained by Allah, and all Muslims must be willing to fight, whether they like it or not. 2:216
    That Jews-hatred, israel-hatred organization (Israel is US ally!) must be sued. Anti-defamation league must be informed about such case/cases. If Islamo-fascists will not be stopped now, it is embolden them and tomorrow can be too late.

    • EarlyBird

      Yeah, on Front Page, it's always the '30s for Jews, '39 for Europe, '47 for Israel, the Summer of '68 for anyone to the left of them.

      • RedWhiteAndJew

        Yes, anti-Semites don't like to hear about Jews, yet they are always somehow present to put in their two DM.

        • EarlyBird

          Dude, if you are representative of Jews, then yes, I do hate you.

          • RedWhiteAndJew

            Don't pretend. You hated Jews before we ever crossed paths.

            That's called blaming the victim, BTW.

          • EarlyBird

            God! Talk about playing to type! The Jew as Victim! Boo hoo! Victim of what?!

            Man, I hate American Jews who put Israel ahead of the US, and manipulate their own citizens to believe that as goes Israel, so goes the US. And then when someone voices the most mild criticism of Israel denounces them as "anti-Semites."

            Is that clear?

          • RedWhiteAndJew

            It's called blaming the victim, because you are predicating your hatred of Jews, based upon our exchange. Much like a black man who hates whites, because some white guy called his grandfather a the n-word.

            I hate American Jews who put Israel ahead of the US

            Few do, but it is a handy stereotype for anti-Semites like yourself to use as a ready-made excuse as a rational basis for your hatred of us.

            most mild criticism of Israel

            If characterizations as "apartheid," "theocratic," and such are mild, I'd hate to see what qualifies as hyperbolic.

            But this whine, coming from one who celebrates goading someone into arguing for some sort of Palestinian "final solution" just lays bear exactly what your agenda is.

  • Suzanne

    All these Muslim campus organizations are part of the Muslim Brotherhood. At the end of the day, their strategies are pretty easy to figure out. In this case, the Muslim Brotherhood are just copying the political activism that took place on college campuses during the 1960's. This activism helped grease the wheels for the Americans to abandon the Viet Nam War effort before it could be won. Now the MB are using the same tactics to turn contemporary American youth against the Jewish country of Israel. Unfortunately for Jews, many of the professors and staff at American universities are hardened life long leftists with little sympathy for any free country be it Israel or any other. But the American people have an effective weapon if we want to use it and that is PARENTS! Yes, we have to educate our kids before, during and after college about these groups. Kids will listen to their parents, especially if they have a good relationship with them. if everyone did this, these MB stooges would quickly find out that they are despised by mainstream American students. Yes, we have the power to combat this evil!

    Back in the day it was called hippies, circa 1967. The hippies invaded a ROTC graduation parade, yelling, screaming expletive deletes at cadets, anti War chants and slogans….no need for "we don't need no stinking federal law"…..as the ROTC cadets broke ranks and pummeled the protestors. What ever happened to all you law abiding and patriotic students at UC Davis, where are you folks? Or are you like the rest of the sheep being lead to the no rights zones?

  • Davidka

    “richard’s” statement that the immature students will “grow out of” their stupidity is extremely naive. I attended UC Santa Cruz and UC Berkeley (law school) and saw as much leftist stupidity as I cared to. Maybe some of the people grew out of their political and personal stupidity, but most have not, and have passed it on to their children.

  • Jim

    Maybe the Arabs are paying money to U.C. Davis . I think the most such schools depend a lot on foreign students tuition. Such tuition comes from who know where.

  • Drakken

    Untill the jewish students and any westerner for that matter, stands up to these bloody muslim savages and their Quisling supporters they will continue until they will feel free to assault and harm them without repercussions. The savages will never confront you one on one, they always confront in groups, have a bigger group and go to town. All this talk of law suits and lawfare is folly, the only language the left and muslims understand and respect is the mailed fist, it is time to stand up and push back, niceties and pleasantries will no longer work any longer, therefore time to change tactics.

            Note how the anti-Semite breaks up my name in this post.

            RedWhite and Jew

            It cannot use as an excuse, that it was separating the individual words, because RedWhite remains co-joined. It had to separate Jew from the rest, however. Whether this was subconscious or deliberate, only the subject can say, but it has already demonstrated a fondness for hostility addressing me as simply "Jew."

  • Parenthetical Phrase

    "Rebelling against their parents?" "Immature idiots?" "Pot smoking, drinking, partying, sleeping around, listening to rock music?" What planet are you from? Their political opinions are probably the same as their parents and their behavior cannot be cast off as just the rantings of "immature idiots who smoke pot and listen to rock music." This is outright Brownshirt facism not some rebellious youthful phase they are going through. It's not that they lack confidence, it's that they have too much of it and they know no one will stop them.They don't "lack direction". They know exactly where they are going and can't wait to get there. It's time to wake up — at least before they kill you. US universities are producing fascist, pro-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-free speech, violent, and dangerous fanatics just the way they did in Germany where they were the hotbeds of the Nazi rhetoric and ideology. Reduce this situation to a lack of self- confidence or "rebelliousness" at your own risk.

    • Mary Sue

      Well, if their parents are in any way "conservative", then yes they are. though I'll grant you that many of them started out with libtarded parents.

      Why is it that so many children of conservatives rebel into liberalism, but not so many children of liberal parents rebel into conservatism?

  • gary fouse

    As a part-time teacher at UC Irvine the last 14 years, I have witnessed this hate personally. It is ultimately the fault not only of the perps, but the UC administration, its chancellors and the lefty professors who egg them on. When I was a student back in the 60s, bullies eventually met their match real quick. Now the punks are protected by schools and lawyers. One answer is a class-action law suit.

      It's "cool" to shut down conversation and ideas one doesn't agree with on campus if they are to the right of the PC nonsense. But anyone question a liberal notion and it's "hate speech!"

      • RedWhiteAndJew

        But anyone question a liberal notion and it's "hate speech!"

        Yeah. A liberal notion like Israel is…how did you put it…a right-wing theocracy.

        Oh right, and it's an "apartheid" state, too. That one's always good for a laugh.

        • EarlyBird

          I thought you Jews were smart? I never said it was these things.

          I've stated that if enough of you hate-filled, genocidal, racist, extremist religious zealots continue to get ahold of Israeli government – become the equivalent of Iran's Supreme Council – you will turn it into a right wing theocracy and an apartheid state.

          By your own admission you wish it to become that way! Stop whining.

            (I'm not sure what all of these links right back to this article is supposed to mean.)

            Netanyahu is a flaming liberal by some Israelis' standards. He's really the guy holding the center-right together now. Even Naftali Bennet, a born-again Nazi, isn't as far out as some of them.

            There is a pretty well-known rabbi over there (surely you'll know him) who recently announced something to the effect of the job of Israel's democracy is to "die, so that Israel can finally become a real Jewish state," and by that he meant one where non-Jews were denied basic citizens' rights, and that so many secular laws were undone, and etc.

          • RedWhiteAndJew

            The links are just examples of what you've said, upthread.

            As to rabbis saying certain things, by your logic, I could condemn Christianity for the venom which spews from the likes of Westboro Baptist Church. You are no different from the anti-Semites who like to quote the doddering rabbi, whose words about gentiles serving Jews was twisted into a rhetorical parody.

          • EarlyBird

            There is a real push towards a militaristic-theocractic state in Israel, and so much of it has to do with the very understandable frustration of having to live under the constant cloud of terror generation after generation.

            But to go that far is to lose Israel all together. It's why we can't, in America, throw away the Constitution because we are challenged by terrorism. It's exactly times of stress that we must confirm our liberal (small "l") values and adhere to the rules of democracy.

    Do School Administrators deserve severe santion for failure to enforce stated rules and laws? You better believe it. This has nothing to do with their personal poiint of view, as that is totally irrelevant. Like it or not, they are in a position of enforcement. In a regulated industry, faliure to "supervise" or act in a fashion consistent with policies, laws, regulations and procedures will earn one a great deal of regulatory scrutiny and possibly sever sanction. They need to do their jobs or hit the road.
