Islamic extremism has arrived to the United States, and it’s being permitted to incubate on liberal college campuses.
Pro-Palestinian protesters staged an organized interruption of a lecture at the University of California, Davis by an Israeli-Arab diplomat, as video posted online showed them shouting “Allahu akbar” and “long live the intifada” in apparent approval of a six-month wave of Palestinian stabbing attacks — the latest of which claimed the life of an American student Tuesday.
The group interrupted a Monday talk by Israeli diplomat George Deek — an Arab Christian who notably is from Jaffa, the mixed Jewish-Arab area south of Tel Aviv where Vanderbilt University graduate student Taylor Force was stabbed to death by a Palestinian assailant — according to the Algemeiner, which covers Jewish news. Besides shouting “Allabu akbar,” that is, “Allah is the greatest” and “long live the intifada,” the student protesters also chanted slogans tying the fight against Israel to a struggle between blacks and whites.
… Besides their vocal support for the intifada uprising that has plagued Israel with nearly daily stabbing and other violent attacks since September, the California protesters chanted another slogan that suggested they support violence against Israelis.
“When Palestine is occupied, resistance is justified,” they shouted. Palestinians refer to violent attacks on Israelis as “resistance,” including stabbing attacks, rocket launches and shootings. As they exited the room, the protesters — many of whom wore Palestinian keffiyeh headscarves, Islamic hijab headscarves and beards associated with devout Muslims — repeatedly shouted “Allahu akbar!”
Below is a video of the chilling scene:
I wonder if the campus “cultural sensitivity directors” (or whoever is running this university’s P.C. Police) are going to reprimand and penalize the protesters for making Jewish and pro-Israel students on campus feel threatened or unwelcome. I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for it….
Progressives supporting an anti-Israel agenda get a free pass on college campuses, whether they are students or radical professors who believe that “Israeli and Zionist Jews” carried out the September 11 and Charlie Hebdo terror attacks.
This is not tolerance of the minority opinion on campus, this is tyranny of the radical minority opinion on campus. Pay close attention, parents. This is the environment your tuition bills are paying for.
