Harvard, UCLA Disallow Argument for Legitimacy of Jewish State
Atlas Shrugs ^ | 5/30/12 | Pamela Geller

Recently I posted about how UCLA hosted a "debate" between Islamic supremacist Jew-haters Reza Aslan and Hussein Ibish arguing over the "one-state solution" or the "two-state solution" -- that is, whether Israel should be destroyed by "Palestinian" jihadists working from within or from a "Palestinian" state. There was no discussion of the legitimacy of the Jewish State. Atlas reader Wallace Edward Brand ("Salubrius") posted this comment:

I have been trying to offer the students at UCLA a view of a one lawful Jewish state West of the Jordan River. One of the UCLA faculty members told me it was impossible. All the faculty members who could sponsor a conference on that topic were too politically correct.

I had the same problem at the Harvard Conference on March 3.

I tried to get the Harvard Crimson to run an op ed with my view. No reply. I finally ended up buying a quarter page ad in the print edition and the on-line edition with the facts. So I tried to do the same at UCLA. They didn't even reply to my request for a quote for a quarter page ad.

I asked him for more information and he sent me this:

Dear Pamela,

As you requested, here is the story of my trying to get on the panel in the March 3,4 conference at Harvard. It was written up by Arutz Sheva, a very conservative Israeli paper, in their English language edition: Op-Ed: "Harvard Had no Room for a One Jewish State Solution" I was surprised at this because Ms Drew Faust, the President of Harvard is a historian. I thought she would like my presentation on the 1920 San Remo grant, the basis for my one Jewish State Solution because it is principally the history of the Middle

I was at the UC Santa Cruz campus late this morning and in the Quarry Plaza (by By Tree campus bookstore), the Santa Cruz Israel Action Committee setup a display area and it was very interesting. I talked with the folks running it and there were quite a few people that tried to argue with the folks. There was even one flyer where it had Hitler and an islamists sitting at a table, something ignored by the LSM.

Very sad. I would have thought westerners would never go there again.

I have an MSA from UC (evenings, GI Bill, while working full time) and have worked with MANY UC graduates.

California could probably balance its budget by closing down the entire system, selling off property, and starting over when the budget was balanced.

If provision were made for a few legitimate research and medical programs, absolutely nothing would be lost in the process.

And what would happen to all of the marxist vermin that infest all of their campuses?

Would they move on to government regulatory agencies?
Would there be enough room at charitable foundations?

maybe they will happily stop pissing in everyone else’s beer and .. actually grow up and get out there and... shudder..... horrors......eek!....actually get productive employment....(that dreadful four letter word: JOBS) like the rest of us? Or even “worse,” might some of them actually roll up their sleaves and....shivermytimbers!...try to start “bourgeoise” businesses of their own? But I must be dreaming. Or perhaps it is the impact of too much of their funny-cigarette-smoke which, what with my lack of familiarity with such substances, I may have actually inhaled as I tried to walk across campus? MarxistIslamoFascistNaziCommiePigs actually doing grown-up WORK (another of their dreaded 4 letter words) for a change!???? There can be but one explanation...THE END IS NIGH! Prepare to Meet Thy Maker! (or for the COmmieIslamoFascistNazi Crud, Prepare to Meet Thy 70 virgins????). And may the Lord have mercy on us poor hard-working taxpayers for our willingness to keep subsidizing all this krap on our public school campuses/campii? It is indeed partly our fault...alas.

The thugs behind the Islamic silencing of everyone but their own voice are called C.A.I.R. They should be indicted by the federal government. C.A.I.R. is the biggest enemy of free speech in America. Groups like the Muslim Students Association are an art of C.A.I.R., foreign financed and doing the bidding of Islamic Jihad and useful idiots on the far Left.
