Recent news reports of racial extortion and attacks on free speech on some of our elite college campuses have raised questions about the value of higher education in America today. Less discussed but more prevalent is an even more disturbing issue—the dominating presence in our universities of activist groups acting as mouthpieces for Islamist terrorism.
The David Horowitz Freedom Center recently concluded an intensively researched, carefully documented report on The Top Ten U.S. Colleges Most Friendly to Terrorists. They are (in alphabetical order) Brandeis University; Columbia University; Harvard University; Rutgers University (New Brunswick); San Francisco State University; University of California, Irvine; University of California, Los Angeles, University of California, San Diego, University of Michigan, and University of New Mexico.
The ten case histories in this report present a disturbing picture of campus communities—among them some of the most prestigious colleges in the country—where groups parroting the violent propaganda of Hamas and other terror organizations promote a hate filled agenda aimed at the destruction of Israel and the extermination of the Jewish people. This nationally coordinated effort, which is spearheaded by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA), both of which were planted in the U.S. by members of a terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, is not only tolerated but supported and funded by administrators at these schools who rigorously restrain other hate groups through codes of conduct that in this case are ignored.
Because the funding, housing and political free reign given to these front groups for terror threatens the physical security of Jewish students and the national security of our country, the Freedom Center has sent copies of this report to the Presidents and Chairs of the Boards of Trustees of these ten colleges, along with a letter calling on them to withdraw the funding, housing and other symbols of legitimacy given to these groups whose objectives are so deeply inimical to the intellectual purposes of the university and so hostile to U.S. national security.
These letters direct the university presidents’ attention to the following facts:
The Freedom Center has requested that the Presidents of the schools named in the Top Ten Colleges Most Friendly to Terrorists withdraw their administrations’ active support for the Students for Justice in Palestine, the Muslim Students Association, and other front groups for terror, thereby ensuring a civil discourse on their campuses, as well as a respect for the basic truths about a deeply and dangerously troubled region of the world. We have also forwarded copies of this report to key alumni and the local media in the communities where these schools are located.
