"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis." Dante Alighieri
The long march of leftist anti-semites and stealth jihadists into our universities and schools has cast its poisonous spell over the young and the stupid. It is, of course, evidence of the freedoms afforded Jewish people -- even the freedom not to think. You never see such dissent or vocal criticism of Islam and sharia among Muslims. One or two maybe, but it's always couched in taqiya -- they wouldn't want a fatwa, would they?

Moral blindness in the face of evil is depravity. But in the upside-down moral universe of our world today, moral blindness has become a badge of honor. If you refuse to call evil by its name, then you are a moderate. And if you stand up to evil, you are yourself an extremist.The embrace of moral blindness as an emblem of sophistication is nowhere more apparent than among American Jews. Take recent events on US college campuses. This week the Washington Times reported that a large and vocal group of Brandeis University students are organizing to protest the university's decision to invite Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren to give this year's commencement address.In a Facebook initiative led by a student named Jonathan Sussman, several hundred students have joined the demand to disinvite Oren.Sussman claims that by inviting him, Brandeis is siding with "a rogue state apologist, a defender of (among other things) the war crimes and human rights abuses of the war on Gaza."Sussman gained notoriety earlier this year when he sought to organize students to disrupt former UN ambassador Dore Gold in a debate the university hosted between Gold and Richard Goldstone. Sussman, a self-proclaimed Communist is a member of the anti-American Students for Democratic Society.
