LONG BEACH A speech by a controversial Muslim leader calling Israel an "apartheid state" at Cal State Long Beach on Thursday sparked a demonstration by a Jewish student organization.
Amir Abdul Malik Ali, a leader of an Oakland mosque, addressed an audience of more than 200 students, including demonstrators from Beach Hillel, in front of the University Bookstore in the afternoon.
Ali, who has spoken before at CSULB, was invited to the campus by the Muslim Student Association.
Ali said Israel was an "oppressor" comparable to Goliath, and he likened Muslims, including those in militant groups Hamas and Hezbollah, to David.
"You are Goliath, you are the oppressor, you are now standing with imperialism and colonialism," he said. "And like Goliath of old, you must fall eventually, like Goliath of old.
"Like the apartheid in South Africa that fell, you must eventually fall because of your apartheid state in the Holy Land," he added.
As he was speaking, some students held up protest signs. Others yelled, "Lies!" and "Tell the truth!"
Jordan Greenberg, a 20-year-old junior and member of Beach Hillel, said he showed up because Ali is a "hateful speaker" who blames Jews for the world's ills.
"He's just such a radical that I feel it's my responsibility as a Jew and a human being to show up" at the speech to demonstrate Thursday.
Other students were supportive of Ali.
Nour Kweider, a 23-year-old member of the Muslim Student Association, said she liked the speech.
"It know it got a little heated, but I think he made very valid points," she said.
She said she was upset that some in the audience incorrectly perceived that "we are against the Jews."
"This is about oppression in general, humanity and what is going on in Palestine with the Zionists," she said.

Do you have a SoCal ping list??
"Do you have a SoCal ping list??"
No, I don't but Norm may.
You have to be irredeemably retarded to call Israel "Goliath" and muslims "David". There is no context into which that fits.
The Bible says: "Woe unto them who call good evil and evil good." Woe, indeed.
What was it like at UCI last night? How about Nuremburg redux. Virtually the entire crowd, which I estimated at roughly 200, consisted of Islamists, most dressed entirely in stormtrooper black. A few campus police stood at the back of the room, but there were very few kufar to protect, perhaps a dozen or so. Several of the stormtroopers constantly peered across the audience, their faces in a perpetual paranoid sneer. For two hours, Malik Ali spouted paranoid nonsense about a Jewish Zionist plot to destroy Sudan, etc., etc., matching a plot by George Bush to hold off economic collapse by spreading civil wars in the muslim world. And of course, all the Jews would have to go back ?to Russia, Germany, wherever they came from.? And the only solution for America is a caliphate under the rule of the Compact of Omar. Hatred and a confident, arrogant desire to kill and subjugate the kufar gleamed from every eye. Every few minutes, as the guest made an impressive statement, e.g. a cheerleader would shout TAKBEEEEEER to which the crowd would reply, screaming from the gut, in unison, ALLAHU AKHBAR! This was not a cheer. This was a practiced, disciplined, war chant fueled by adrenaline and hatred: Sieg! then Heil! only angrier, much angrier. At that moment, I became convinced that a shooting war is coming, here in America. The MSU is an enemy army, allowed into our house by current immigration law, and by admissions policies that favor foreigners over Americans. This is not Saudis sneaking into the country to fly airplanes into buildings, but people who speak like us, able to pass as us, and filled with a Mephistophelian desire to create havoc. They will do it. They are confident, and given time, they just might win - unless they are stopped.
