Jews, Muslims Clash at Wisconsin University
Arutz Sheva ^ | 5-2-10 | Maayana Miskin

Maayana Miskin

Jewish and Muslim students clashed Thursday at an event at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, according to the local paper Journal Sentinel. The clash left one Jewish student wounded and a Muslim student under arrest. University officials plan to investigate the incident.

The story began as Jewish students held a celebration in honor of Israel's recent Independence Day outside the student union offices. A group of students from the Muslim Student Association came to the event and began yelling at those present, accusing Israel of mistreating Arabs.

"We didn't go there intending to cause trouble, we just wanted to have a conversation,” Muslim Student Association president Yamin Masalkhi claimed said.

Masalkhi said “hotheads” in his group were responsible for escalating the argument by flying a Palestinian Liberation Organization flag from a structure the Jewish students were using for their event. A Jewish student attempted to throw the flag in the trashbin , and was struck by one of the Muslim students.

He could have had a ‘conversation’ over the phone.

This was deliberate.

It was a a celebration in honor of Israel’s recent Independence Day.

And the 9/11 terrorist bombers wanted to "have a conservation" too. These Islamic crazies need some real seeing to.

Next time, let’s see if we can have a few Muslim students wounded. Maybe then they’ll think twice before trying to crash a Jewish event with one of their “conversations”. Fascist SOBs.

What happened IS conversation, from the Muslim Student Association point of view. No reason why those paranoiac Jewish students and university officials should interpret this as "causing trouble" - just a little collegial nudge.

You're right, they're a known Muslim Brotherhood outfit. This is how you converse with infidels. And women.

Ironic, isn’t it? The muzz are the biggest haters on the planet, yet because of political correctness they will never be charged with a hate crime.

At least the perp was arrested, in California he'd be walking the streets.

I'm sure we both agree that under absolutely no circumstances should the authorities inquire into his immigration status. That would be demeaning.

The MSA/Muslim brotherhood arrestee, I'm sure the victim identified himself at the hospital.

Yep. The options are not fight back and be trampled, or fight back and diminish the threat. The muslims are never going to stop, it’s not in their nature (indoctrination).

If the Jewish people laid down their arms they would be slaughtered. If the Muslims laid down their arms there would be peace in the region and the world.

The muslims clearly have no desire to behave in a civilized manner in our society. If they are foreigners they should be immediately deported and never allowed to return. If not, they have no place in any college class among students who wish to learn in peace.

Hey Sister_T, you got some good and clever answers to your qustion, but the word you were looking for is “Taqqiyah” or “Taqiyah” . I have seen it spelled other ways too. It means “lying to further the cause of islam” and it is a respected tenet of the religion.

They can’t come out and say “violent attack by Muslims.” No, let’s go with the euphemism “clash.”

“Masalkhi admitted that the Muslim Student Association had written anti-Israel comments on the plaza pavement, but said the association was not involved in writing anti-Semitic slurs. Martin Luther King was known to have said that anti-Israelism is another word for anti-Semitism.”

Wouldn’t this be reason to kick them off campus?

I went last week to the UW-Milwaukee to see Ann Coulter speak, and the security was unbelievably high. About a dozen students “protested” by dressing and acting like zombies out on the lawn. If I was a parent wasting my money sending my kid there so they could do that, I’d cut them off money-wise immediately,

This violent antisemitism, both in the raising of the Palestinian Flag over the Jewish event and in the assault on the Jewish student, can not be tolerated here in Wisconsin. The perpetrators of this crime must be punished to the full extent of the law and condemned by other Muslims. If not, we may find that these continuing violent provocations by some Muslims in this country leads to a violent backlash against all Muslims in this country. Both of Wisconsin's senators are Jewish. I hope they will both condemn this antisemitic violence.
