"Palestinian Week" The historical lie manufactured by the brutal terror master Yaser Arafat, systematically used to beat the Jews about the head, is spinning out of control. "Palestinian Week" is a rotating band of goons disgorging hate, thuggery, intimidation and terror. It is sponsored by Muslim Students Association (MSA), a key lobbying organization for the Wahhabi sect of Islam, with a network of over 200 chapters on college campuses. Founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, MSA was named in a May 1991 Muslim Brotherhood memorandum as one of the Brotherhood's likeminded "organizations of our friends" who shared the common goal of destroying America and turning it into a Muslim nation.
I am well aware of the this rampant anti-semitism activity at notorious college campuses like UC, but Emory?
I wanted to share with you something that came across my e-mail box today. I am a brother of AEPi Zeta (Georgia Tech ME, Class '07). I have received the following:
On Saturday night while our entire chapter was out of town at their Fall Formal the house (university owned) was attacked by a Molotov cocktail and set on fire. Luckily passerby's saw it and quickly called the fire department. The damage was confined to a relatively small area of the front door and front porch. There is smoke damage in the house but it's livable.
Last week was very tension filled at Emory with "Palestinian Week" and it culminated on Friday with a mock fence set up degrading Israel's security fence. Tensions were high all week but the week ended and we thought that it was over. Unfortunately, the chapter was called back from their out of town formal to find the fire and it's remnants.
We have all been in touch with the university president, Greek Life people and security personnel. The undergrads are very shaken by this incident. Luckily we have excellent leadership and we have arranged for security for the next few nights as well until things calm down. Our Epsilon Chapter is the largest on campus and very identified as Jewish. The group numbers more than 100 men and they are not a squeamish bunch by any means.
These "Palestinian Weeks" go from campus to campus across North America - about a half dozen or so a year and cause a varied amount of havoc in their wake. We've seen much worse than this in California and Canada but it's scary certainly anywhere it happens. These groups are sponsored and funded by the MSA "Muslim Student Association" and you can probably guess where their funding comes from.
We had another scare tonight at 7:00 PM at Emory and the police emptied our house. An unidentified book bag was on the porch and the bomb squad was called in. It turned out to be nothing but made the kids even more nervous. I am speaking with them every couple of hours and after the early evening scare all is quiet now. Although this is a university building and I believe they are doing all they can, I expect the phone to start ringing tomorrow morning from parents. We will do our best to assure them that it's calming down.
Also, in the student newspaper was published the cartoon above.
Here is an article about it, and a request for an apology from the newspaper
In Friday’s Wheel there was a disturbing cartoon directly comparing the Nazi ghettoes with the separation fence the Israelis have erected on the West Bank. This equation is historically spurious and highly prejudicial. The Germans put Jews from throughout Europe in ghettoes to either die a slow death of starvation, deprivation and disease or a faster death with a bullet or poison gas.
When Israel withdrew from the Gaza strip, it left behind fertile farms, hothouses filled with advanced hydroponic systems for growing vegetables, and other installations which could have been used to better the Palestinians’ lot. Most were destroyed by the Palestinian people. International funds were raised to help the residents of Gaza. These too have resulted in little improvement. Meanwhile, rockets from Gaza continue to be fired into Israeli towns. A barrage Saturday put 18 people in the hospital. In response, Israel has shut the border between Gaza and Israel, further increasing the suffering of the residents of Gaza.
There is a serious problem in the Middle East but Woodliff’s glib comparison of Jews to Nazis is not only ill-informed, it demonstrates a certain prejudice — antisemitism — which will never help resolve the situation. Whatever one thinks of Israeli policy, to describe it as akin to the Nazi policy of murdering all of European Jewry is to engage in antisemitism and a form of Holocaust denial.
Finally, I was struck by the explanatory note the Woodliff appended to the drawing. No editorial cartoon should need an explanation or an addendum. If the cartoonist is any good, his work should speak for itself. With that I rest my case.
And this from the faculty - a responsible faculty, thank G-d. The professors at Duke could learn a thing or two.
