AbuKhalil was exultant over the latest bombing of the gas pipeline from Egypt to Israel, a signal to him that the U.S. is no longer "all-powerful":

The United States wants to take our agency from us, they want to convince us, as Israel has tried to do all these decades, that we are incapable of changing the situation, the enemy is too strong . . . invincible.

Displaying a lust for violence, AbuKhalil boasted:

I am in favor of chaos because I'm really enjoying what's happening in Egypt, especially what's happening against Israel [the attack on the Israeli embassy]. I've played these scenes on YouTube more times than I've played songs.

The audience laughed in agreement as he spoke.

AbuKhalil made his hatred of Israel clear in his description of hearing Israeli soldiers screaming—so he claimed—as they retreated from Hezbollah fighters in southern Lebanon in 2006. "It shows you if Arabs are allowed freedom to fight Israel, this is the kind of Palestine you will see," he bragged.

More shocking was his blithe dismissal of Hamas's constant barrage of rockets into southern Israel, which he called, "those firecrackers from Hamas [fired] at a town in occupied Palestine." He then belittled the suffering the bombardment has caused:

You will notice there were like ten injured and sometimes they had shocks . . . they actually list the injured; they [listed] those whose feelings were hurt; those who were startled. This war crimes thing is for victimhood reputation.

Again, the audience laughed heartily.

Later, a member of the audience challenged him by asking about the recently released International Atomic Energy Agency (I.A.E.A.) report showing that Iran's nuclear program has military dimensions. AbuKhalil dodged the question by raising Israel's alleged nuclear program and what he called the "racist content of the notion that nuclear weapons are dangerous in the hands of Muslims, but safe in the hands of Christians and Jews." He apparently has no worries about the Iranian regime's threat to wipe Israel off the map, its constant threat to its neighbors, or the apocalyptic nature of the mullah's theology; only Israel can threaten peace in the region.

During the plenary session that followed, AbuKhalil said he was angered that the work of the Canadian-Muslim feminist and author Irshad Manji, and "other Islam-haters" has been translated into Arabic. Yet he describes himself as "secular" and a "feminist"—under the right circumstances, one supposes, meaning that Western liberal concepts don't apply to those who criticize Islam.

He also condemned the translation into Arabic of a tract on non-violence aimed at the Arab uprisings. "Very boring," he declared:

The United States wanted the revolution to be non-violent. They started the myth in the New York Times. It's not. It's a violent struggle by Arabs. And please, I am not making an apology. It's justifiable. They want to bring down these regimes in any way possible.

Whether glorifying violence, exalting in the death and misery of Israelis, or blaming the U.S. for the ills of the Arab world, AbuKhalil lived up to his moniker as an "angry Arab." Presumably, he brings the same radicalism to the classroom, which is a frightening prospect for his students. When anger replaces reason, there's little hope for an education, no matter how many "teach-ins" universities offer.Please email your concerns and comments to California State University, Stanislaus, Political Science and Public Administration (LRiddell@csustan.edu).

So, Islamic Rage Boy has moved from Pakistan to Berkeley.

He preaches his hate from the safety of a Leftist pulpit, and not from the front lines in Israel.

Typical Muslim coward.

The 'Angry Arab' Goes Mad

Or was it, "The Mad Arab Goes Awry." Don't know for sure.

Hey Cal State, let’s get some folks who believe in a four thousand year old earth for the geology dept, and get some physicists who insist that relativity and quantum physics don’t work, and some mathematicians that still think that pi is equal to 3.0.

That way, the STEM departments will contain as much blithering idiocy as does your liberal arts departments.

Take that arab and dip him in pig...er..democrat fat.

Now.

Islam has been an insane murder cult since Mad Mo crawled out of the bat cave and barked at the moon.

No wonder his most ardent followers are also barking mad.

AbuKhalil's workshop on "The U.S. and the Arab Uprising" was held in a tiny, hot, windowless room filled with students wearing hijabs and keffiyehs.

How long did it take to get the smell out after the meeting ended? Or maybe they just decided to demolish and rebuild the entire building?
