Terrorists on Campus

Image01San Francisco State University prides itself as a university “known for its commitment to excellent teaching.”  As part of its commitment to “excellent teaching,” SFSU offers a minor in “Race and Resistance Studies.” The program features courses like “Palestine: Ethnic Studies Perspective” and “Islamophobia: Roots, Development, and Contestation of Hatred.” These courses, which masquerade as legitimate academic studies but in reality amount to nothing more than base propaganda and Israel-hate fests, are taught by a pernicious character named Rabab Abdulhadi.

 

Abdulhadi, a terrorist supporter as well as a supporter of the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, embodies all that is wrong with radical elements of academia who have all but hijacked the social science and humanities fields. Her obsessive focus on Israel and monomaniacal demonization of the Mideast’s only democracy betray a troubling pattern of Judeophobia and overt anti-Semitism.

 

But adopting Nazi-like boycott tactics is insufficient for professor Abdulhadi. She advocates other forms of resistance, aka terrorism, against the so-called “colonizers.” Consider her screed on an online forum where she discusses “resistance” and “liberation” and notes that the adoption of the BDS tactic “is often misunderstood as a condemnation of Palestinian armed resistance or a disowning of those who sacrificed their lives in the struggle.” Abdulhadi’s implication is clear; boycotts must be employed side-by-side with violence and “armed struggle.”

 

But Abdulhadi’s malevolence does not end there. In classic anti-Semitic fashion, she attempts to eviscerate any Jewish nexus to historic Israel by absurdly referring to Jews who were born in pre-state Israel as “Arab Palestinian Jews,” erasing any form of independent Jewish identity.

 

Abdulhadi refers to the Palestinian charter which she claims calls for a “secular democratic state in Palestine.” Here she demonstrates her true ignorance, repeating the lie propagated by Rashid Khalidi and other charlatans of similar background. The Palestinian charter never has and does not call for a “secular democratic state.”  Historian Benny Morris notes that the Palestinian charter was amended in 1968 but the amendment was limited to extending “non-Arab citizenship in a future Arab-liberated Palestine to ‘Jews who had normally resided in Palestine until the beginning of the Zionist invasion.’” Those who arrived after 1917 would be ethnically cleansed, leaving the “privilege” of citizenship to a trickle of fortunate centenarians.

 

There is no level that Professor Abdulhadi will not stoop to defame and disparage the Jewish State, including engaging in outright mendacity.  In 2014 Abdulhadi gave a speech to a pliant audience where she claimed that Israel turned Arab mosques into bars, looted churches and desecrated Muslim cemeteries. Of course this is hogwash and Abdulhadi offers not a scintilla of credible evidence to back up her outrageous claims.

 

What Abdulhadi conveniently forgets to note is that when East Jerusalem was under Arab occupation, dozens of Jewish synagogues and learning institutions were razed or turned into garbage dumps. Indeed, the Western Wall, one of Judaism’s holiest sites was turned into a refuse site. Moreover, following the Arab-Israeli war of 1948, Arabs desecrated the oldest, continuously used Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives by using its burial headstones to build latrines and other structures for the Jordanian army. Desecration of cemeteries by Muslims is neither phenomenal nor limited to Jewish sites as evidenced by the horrific desecration of a cemetery for Commonwealth soldiers killed while liberating Libya from the Nazis; so much for gratitude. Abulhadi’s feigned concern for Christian sites is almost comical considering the level of persecution Christians are forced to endure under Palestinian Muslim rule in Gaza, Bethlehem and elsewhere.

 

Abdulhadi’s xenophobic and fascist views, coupled with her penchant for engaging mendacity should by itself, be sufficient cause for SFSU to disassociate itself from her and terminate her employment. But Abdulhadi has also created a campus environment conducive to fear and hatred directed toward the pro-Israel community.

 

On March 26, 2014 several Jewish organizations wrote to SFSU president, Leslie Wong urging him to investigate a number of disturbing incidents, directly and indirectly involving Abdulhadi and implicating her in supporting terrorism and incitement to violence. Some of the more egregious incidents include the following.

 

On March 6, 2014 Abdulhadi convened an event where she and others condoned or glorified terrorism against Israelis to SFSU students. Those with dissenting opinions were marginalized and harassed.

 

Abdulhadi was faculty advisor to Mohammad Hammad, an SFSU student who posted a picture of himself on a social media site holding a knife along with a caption expressing the urge to kill or stab Israelis. Hammad also threatened to behead a female Israel Defense Forces soldier, “as well as the heads…of all others who support the IDF.”

 

Abdulhadi, as Director of the Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas Initiative (AMED), sponsored an event where SFSU students posted placards which stated, “My Heroes Have Always Killed Colonizers,” a euphemism for Jews. Moreover, the event glorified convicted hijacker Leila Khaled and images of her were displayed holding a gun.

 

To his credit, President Wong forcefully condemned the event and its “glorification of violence,”  further noting that, “there is no place at SF State for celebrating violence or promoting intolerance, bigotry, anti-Semitism or any other form of hate-mongering.” But condemnation of the hate and incitement without taking action against the source of that incitement is insufficient. It is clear that Abulhadi’s agenda is not to teach but to indoctrinate, not to impart knowledge but to propagate hate. Abdulhadi’s presence at SFSU represents a stain on an otherwise fine institution of learning. It is time to give her walking papers.

    I went to SFSU over 20 years ago and was active in the small pro-Israel circle. It was anti-Israel and hostile to Jews then and is now. The Jewish community didnt do anything about it then and wont now. Nothing will change. Jews will still support unlimted immigration and the problem will get worse.

    Ghost of a Darwin Award Winner,

    I didn’t know that Barack Hussein Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Eric Holder, Nancy Pelosi were JOOOOOZ.

    You have the brains of a Sack of Socialist SHlTler.

    • Dan Borden

      Damn, you are really dense. Don’t you know that JOOOOZ can be created at will to advance the cause of “indigenous” and “oppressed” peoples everywhere? I find JOOOOOZ to be very handy when my favorite NASCAR driver does not win, as I can blame the JOOOOOZ who obviously sabotaged his equipment. JOOOOOOZ are equally helpful when my beloved Montreal Canadians or Green Bay Packers are beaten, as the JOOO referees are at fault. I just wish I had discovered this phenomenon when I played competitive golf, JOOOOOOZ would have been invaluable!!

  • EL CID

    These “academics” have no interest in historical truth or understanding and are indoctrinating a new generation in hate and the tactics of hate. The concept that a US university would have a group called “resistance” studies is frightening and mind-boggling.

    On her webpage she has a poster for the 3rd Intifada. The message is purely political and violent and one-sided–how is this acceptable on a university web site?

    The American way has always been to acknowledge differences and find a way to work together. Where are we heading when our schools can be hijacked to teach negative values?

  • herb benty

    Wow, I was going to say, “you can say that again!” But you shouldn’t have to. Why don’t these “institutes of higher learning”……..ever learn? Humanities Departments have nothing to learn from 7th century cults that promote murdering innocent people. Who signs up for these, “courses”, and who hires these, “professors”?

    Islam and Sharia law
    will come to America in one generation by the stealth invasion equivalent to a
    modern version of the “Trojan Horse”, by Muslim immigration. Unless good men
    and woman speak up now.

    Abraham Lincoln said, “To sin by silence when they should
    protest makes cowards of men”. When our
    mainstream news will not inform you of one of the main issues of the 21st
    Century, due to political correctness,
    then it’s time not to be silent anymore.

    Muslim refugees from Somalia and other “warzones” to the
    tune of 500,000 being relocated to America is the issue. The Boston bombers
    came to America through this refugee immigration policy! Forget about being labeled a racist, bigot or
    being politically correct, silence won’t turn back the tide. This immigration
    is a real and growing and is a threatening danger to America. Just look at
    Europe today folks. 60 million Muslims immigrated to Europe and 80% are on some
    sort of public assistance, bankrupting the towns, cities and countries. Due to
    Muslim immigration France is now bankrupt and a welfare State. Is America next?

    The time has come to speak up and take a stand folk, for
    America. Awareness is the issue as most
    families are simply far too busy, working two jobs, raising their children and
    do not have a clue or the time to research the issue. Islamic forces are destroying
    Europe; they’re in a fight for survival. The root cause is the inevitable
    consequences of multiculturalism and immigration plus the alarming birthrate of
    Muslims now an average of 8.1 children in each Muslim family. Europe has
    literally been invaded. Europe will become an Islamic state due to the
    immigration and sheer birthrate of Muslims.

    I have done that for you, if you Google
    “TheProjectMuslimBrotherhood” you will find that this is their doctrine to destroy America and West from within by
    stealth jihad, and lies. Guess what,
    the doctrine is over 20 years old, and they are making substantial
    progress. We are now approaching 2400
    Mosques along with approximately 2.7 million Muslims here in America.

    “We will conquer Europe! (They are almost there) We will
    conquer America! Not through the sword but through Dawa (proselytizing)
    Yosuf-alQarawi, Muslim Brotherhood.”

    “We love death more than you love life.” Quoted from the
    Fort Hood massacre killer. Islamists
    seek civilization Jihad and will stop as they literally follow the Quran.
    Although you can find peaceful passages, the Quran speaks violence throughout
    it. It is no Bible.

    The unfair treatment of women and honor killings speaks
    volumes on their “so called peaceful religion”. Just Google “malala” a
    inspiration for all Muslim woman.

    Massive immigration and multiculturalism is literally
    destroying most of Europe today. There
    are over 700 “Islamic No Go Zones”, within France, England and Germany, where
    police cannot enter. Take a look around
    you Dearborn, Michigan, Maine, Tennessee, Minnesota, (has the majority of
    Somalia refugees and a Senator who took his oath and placed his hand on the
    Quran refused the Bible.) New York, California, Colorado for examples of the
    immigration resettlement program, and very soon coming to your State. Over 90% of them are illiterate and in need
    of public assistance. Have you been to Paris or Sweden recently? Immigration is
    bankrupting much of Europe.

    I have no problem with the “peaceful Muslims” that wants to
    integrate into our culture and follow our laws.
    The problem lies in that the
    militant Muslims dominate the peaceful ones and eventually wants to force Islam
    and Sharia law upon us all. They agitate and campaign to dominate the
    rest. Why should America be forced into adapting to their culture? They
    must adapt to our culture. The Boston bombers were motivated by extreme
    militant Islamic beliefs. Our mainstream news is in denial of the danger of
    understating the issue of the Muslim/Islam problem in America today. Many of the Mosques are breeding grounds for
    home grown terrorists. Today in our
    prisons over 18% of the prison population are being converted to Islam by
    recruitment by extremists. Islam berg,
    in New York is a breeding ground for over 30 militant training compounds in
    America today.

    The media has yet to uncover the truth. For the truth is
    that there are no so called “moderate” Muslims. “Islam is one religion
    following Koran and Sunna” I have also read the Koran cover to cover. It is not
    a peaceful religion as they would have you believe.

    Sad to say, they are making inroads into every facet of our
    lives and trying to change our culture, under the guise of the first
    amendment. Already, they are changing
    our schools, universities, cities, towns and even our own government has been
    infiltrated. They want Sharia law and
    will stop at nothing to see that it happens. School textbooks are being changed
    to put Islam in a more favorable light.
    Have you been to a school board meeting recently? Food menus are being
    changed to accommodate all of them.

    The Saudis “oil money” contributes to schools, universities
    and politicians so they can put Islam in a more favorable light in America. Their intent is to destroy us from within,
    not by “war” but rather by stealth jihad and intentional deception and front
    organizations like “CAIR” who support Hamas. They are gradually succeeding
    folks. There are now over 50 Islamic organizations within our own borders.
    Concessions made to Muslims are growing everyday in America. You are just not
    aware or do not care. Recently, in a Catholic University, a group of Muslims is
    suing for discriminating against them
    for not allowing them to “pray” in a room without a crucifixion, how absurd,
    let them go elsewhere.

    When Jews, Christians, Priests, Infidels are being
    slaughtered and murdered, and churches are being burned down did you ever
    wonder why the so called peaceful moderate Muslims, never speak out against
    these atrocities? Europe is losing the battle and America in less than a
    generation will be next. Where is the
    condemnation from the nearly 3 Million Muslims that are here, have you heard a
    word from them? Their silence speaks volumes on their real intent to destroy us
    from within and have no intention of ever living within our culture. They want Sharia law in America today
    folks, and they will not rest until they achieve that goal.. They want to wage
    war against freedom and democracy and have America continue to make concessions
    for them. You give them “one inch” and
    they will take a mile in support of their goals to establish Islam as the
    dominate religion in America and for the eventual mandate for Sharia law to
    take over our court system.

    Sharia law is a real threat to America’s freedom folks. They
    just accomplished that fact, in England this week. We can learn a lot from just
    watching what is taking place in London.

    Islam is a political
    ideology; it is the antithesis of a free society. One generation of silence on the issue due to
    political correctness is all it takes.
    What you do today and tomorrow will affect your children and
    grandchildren and future generations of
    America, yet unborn, you have a
    responsibility toward them.. Stand
    up and be counted to defeat this real threat from within. Voice your opinion, let your congressmen,
    senators and school boards know how you feel on the issue. Our freedom and
    liberty is at stake, be part of the solution folks.

    Forget about being
    labeled and simply do what is right for America. We need a permanent solution, time is running
    out. Let us not become the next Europe. As for me I refuse to be silent on the
    issue. One person can make a difference,
    but think if were united, what a difference we can make to turn back the tide
    and doctrine of the Muslim Brotherhood.
    Enough is enough folks, if you do just one thing today, Google
    “TheProjectMuslimBrotherhood” and see for yourself their intent to destroy
    America from within. Thank you, and
    please forward this to millions. Let me know your opinions.

    Who is the Chancellor of the California State University system? He’s the one that needs to be pressured to get these demagogues off campus. Jerry Brown can’t be bothered to deal with a small(next to his train project) problem like anti-Semitism on a Cal State campus. And where’s Dianne Feinstein(with that .38 revolver in her purse) when you need her? She’s from San Francisco. Her silence is deafening. Jewish self-defense groups would help, too.

    Sounds like SFSU is setting itself up for a ‘WOE”, maybe the whole state.
