Walls Closing In for Jews at UCLA -- and in America
American Thinker ^ | 5/16/2014 | Pamela Geller

Posted on 05/16/2014 4:16:41 AM PDT by markomalley

The walls are closing in on status of equality of Jews in America. Anti-Semites and Islamic supremacists have been pursuing their bigoted agenda of hate under the guise of the invented Palestinian narrative. After years of battering and bullying, they have reached a tipping point. A terrible, horrible tipping point.

The targeting and mistreatment of Jews on the UCLA campus has grown increasingly virulent – while the university’s administration and the mainstream media yawn. One particular Jewish student at UCLA, Avinoam Baral, is being vilified and targeted incessantly by Muslim groups. Muslim Brotherhood groups, so named in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history, are demanding that Jewish students sign Nuremberg-like oaths not to associate with Jewish groups, in their continuing jihad against the Jews.

Daniel Mael, a student at Brandeis and a courageous defender of truth and freedom, reported Thursday that “the editorial board of Al-Talib, the Muslim Newsmagazine at UCLA, called on Jewish student Avinoam Baral to disassociate himself from the pro-Israel program Hasbara Fellowships due to the group's alleged Islamophobia. Al-Talib alleged that the Jewish program “actively (contributes) to violence against Muslims” and asked that Baral, who is a candidate for Internal Vice President in upcoming UCLA student elections, separate himself from the program.” Al-Talib is notorious for having referred to Osama bin Laden as a “freedom fighter” in a 1999 article.

In denouncing Baral, Al-Talib said that “this is NOT to say that Baral is an Islamophobe,” but added: “This IS to say that if Baral does not share those Islamophobic beliefs, he should find it easy to distance himself from organizations that actively contribute to violence against Muslims.” It declared, “that is the only way to provide a measure of reassurance for Muslim students…

Gee. Ya think?

I am “so” amazed that the leftist/socialist Jews on today’s leftist /tolerant/divisive (er, diverse)/socialist/hate-filled college campuses are finding suddenly that the Muslims are attacking them ....

You’d think these college-trained Muslim would be smart enough to know they needed to wait a few more years before attacking the Jews closest to them...

/sarchasm - that gaping whole between a socialist and reality.

"...organizations that actively contribute to violence against Muslims."

I confess, I've never heard of any such organizations nor, in the first world, any significant or systematic violence directed against Muslims.

In India, yes, the Hindu nationalists will take on Muslims for being Muslim, and have done so on an ongoing basis. Here in the West, though, it's pretty much live and let live... or am I mistaken?

Yoo bad most Jewish people don't share your belief's.

They are more concern with Plan Parenthood than Jewish College Students.

Yeah, right.

He must mean all those Jews who blow up buses loaded with Muslim school children.

Jews, as a group, have sided with and financed the people that ENABLE Muslim hate groups to be protected and flourish, which, of course, are the Democrats. It’s hard to feel sorry for them.

Same thing with many Catholics still playing nice with abortion fascist prescriptionists.

I do not know what is it with people coming back to buy the same news papers, watching the same channels etc... also another reason why state funded universities have become a cesspool.

In terms of observing whether or not a society is free and open, the Jews represent the canary in the coal mine.

Societies headed for totalitarianism always seem to target the Jews first. They are an easy group to use to rouse the rabble. The galloping anti-semitism infecting the west is not a good sign for any of us.

I have always thought that the Italian/jewish mafia cool portrayed in Hollywood was going to be a bad thing. Also working for the government is a sense of pride for many.

In the late 1930’s about 400 members of the North American Bund (Nazi sympathizers) were holding a rally at Madison Square gardens.
Meyer Lansky and 15 of his associates enter swinging baseball bats. The meeting was promptly adjourned.
Sometimes it is necessary to take matters into your own hands.

That’s what I was just thinking. I don’t want to spend time or energy defending those who mostly voted obammy. Standing with Israel is different.

The guy is associated with an organization which put out videos accurately depicting jihadism. Any defense against jihad is "violence against Muslims".

First, let them get a good hard look at the fact that their fellow leftists (Muslim activists) are not their friends, and perhaps come to the realization that they need to adjust their viewpoints about who their friends are.

Otherwise you may find yourself getting attacked by the people you are trying to defend, for your "Islamophobia".

Many, many Jews have been quite happy promoting totalitarianism and fascism here and elsewhere. A smaller group has been stalwart defenders of freedom. There is no simple morality tale here. The focus ought to be on ridding ourselves of Mohammedans so everyone, Jews especially, can live unmolested by the religion of caravan raiders and pedophiles.
