JIHAD IN CALIFORNIA: ENEMIES OF OUR CONSTITUTION CONTINUE TO INFILTRATE OUR GOVERNMENT, EDUCATION, AND OTHER INSTITUTIONS
Is the U.S. Constitution a suicide pact?
Our enemies walk free among us, with the right to foment dissent and spread disinformation, with little fear that the authorities will take action. So there should be little or no surprise that our enemies use our Constitution as a weapon against us, insuring their freedom to promote their twisted ideologies while they deny their followers basic human rights, including the freedom of religion and the freedom to even comment on their religious leaders.
How politically correct …
Like the progressive white guilt that saw an incompetent, unprepared, and inexperienced black man elected to the nation’s highest office, progressives fall all over themselves proving how tolerant they are by allowing our enemies to walk through the front door – perhaps to bring Middle Eastern Jihad to California’s golden shores.
Islamic Supremacist Nominated as UC Student Regent
A UC Berkeley senior who is a venomous supporter of the jihad against Israel and member of several Islamic supremacist groups with links to jihad terror has been nominated to become the University of California student regent for the 2014-15 academic year.
The student regent participates in a board that sets policies for the entire University of California system, which consists of ten campuses throughout the state. Sadia Saifuddin is expected to be confirmed as student regent by the full Board of Regents next month.
The hijabbed Saifuddin would be the first Muslim student regent. “My faith,” she explained, “is a big part of my life. What I love the most about Islam is that it preaches tolerance and love, which is the reason that I have close friends and networks outside of the Muslim community as well.”
Yet Saifuddin’s record at UC-Berkeley is hardly one of tolerance and love. She co-sponsored a BDS resolution in the Berkeley student Senate, calling on the entire University of California system to divest companies that do business with Israel, based on the spurious premise that Israel is “occupying” Palestinian territory.
Saifuddin, a member of both Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA), also spearheaded “A Resolution Condemning Islamophobic Hate Speech at the University of California,” which the student Senate passed unanimously. Saifuddin herself wrote the resolution, which claimed that “since September 11, 2001, Islamophobia has become the latest ‘hazing’ technique across the United States and has created a chilling effect for Muslims, Arabs, and South Asians in their communities, work-environments, and campuses,” and that “according to a Gallup Study, 60% of of [sic] Muslim Americans say that Muslims face prejudice from Americans.”
In fact, the very concept of “Islamophobia” is a blunt instrument in the hands of Islamic supremacists, designed to intimidate non-Muslims into thinking that resisting jihad terror is “hateful.” And reality does not back up its existence: the British journalist Brendan O’Neill gave the truth behind such claims in the Telegraph last April, in the wake of the Boston Marathon jihad bombings:
In the years since 9/11, the American public has been admirably tolerant towards Muslim communities. According to federal crime stats collected by the FBI, in 2009 there were 107 anti-Muslim hate crimes; in a country of 300 million people that is a very low number. In 2010, a year of great terrorism panic following the attempt by Pakistani-American Faisal Shahzad to detonate a car bomb in Times Square in NYC, there were 160 anti-Muslim hate crimes. In 2011, there were 157. To see how imaginary the Islamophobic mob is, consider a state like Texas, fashionably mocked as a backward Hicksville full of Fox News-watching morons: there are 420,000 Muslims in Texas, yet in 2011 there were only six anti-Muslim hate crimes there. It simply isn’t true that mad racist Yanks are biting at the bit to attack Muslims.
No actual hate crimes are ever justified. In light of her hysterical exaggeration of the supposed “climate of hate” against Muslims in America since 9/11, however, clearly Saifuddin is joining Islamic supremacist advocacy groups such as the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in using hate crimes to deflect attention from the reality of jihad activity and bully Americans into thinking that it is wrong and bigoted to oppose jihad terror and Islamic supremacism. Hamas-linked CAIR and other Muslims have not hesitated to fabricate “hate crimes.” CAIR and other groups like it want and need hate crimes against Muslims, because they can use them for political points and as weapons to intimidate people into remaining silent about the jihad threat.
Saifuddin’s resolution makes clear its objective to stymie counter-terror efforts when it complains that “Muslim students have been targeted for surveillance by the FBI in Orange County, who said that they are paying particular attention to Muslim students at UC Irvine and UCLA,” and that “this surveillance is occurring on the East Coast as well, with the New York Police Department surveillance of Muslim students at Yale, Columbia, Syracuse, Rutgers, New York University, and Brooklyn College.” It asserts that “these racist and selective surveillance procedures are justified by figures in mainstream media, such as David Horowitz, who defines the core mission of the MSA to ‘advance the Islamic Jihad against the Jews and Christians of the Middle East, and ultimately against the United States.’”
Benjamin noted that the UCSC CJP and affiliated SJP groups on other UC campuses, inspired by Saifuddin’s claims, have
waged a virulent and harmful campaign to assassinate my character that includes: posting and promoting a defamatory on-line petition accusing me of racism and censorship and calling on you to condemn me; widely posting defamatory flyers about me on the UCSC campus; launching over a dozen videos about me on YouTube that wrongfully accuse me of being “hateful,” “dangerous,” and “Islamophobic”; instructing SJP students UC-wide to fill out hate/bias reports against me on their respective campuses; passing libelous resolutions condemning me for my “inflammatory, hateful, and racist assumptions” in the UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, UC Davis, and UC Irvine student senates; and, perhaps most egregiously, appearing to collaborate with groups sympathetic to terrorists (e.g. the International Solidarity Movement) and associated on-line publications (e.g. Electronic Intifada and Mondoweiss) to more widely circulate these defamatory materials about me.
As a result, Benjamin told Yudof, “the CJP/SJP’s targeted and well-orchestrated campaign of intimidation, harassment, and defamation has caused me to feel real concern for my safety and my ability to carry out my responsibilities as a faculty member at UCSC.” Even worse, “the disturbing message these students are sending with their actions is that anyone who attempts to speak out against campus antisemitism, as I have, will be vilified, harassed, intimidated, and bullied into silence.” That harassment includes the fact that two student senators at Saifuddin’s UC Berkeley campus “who voted against the SJP-sponsored divestment resolution were allegedly subject to ‘death threats and vitriolic accusations.’”
This climate of harassment is in large part the responsibility of Sadia Saifuddin. That the UC Board of Regents would reward her and legitimize her vilification of Israel and all foes of jihad is unconscionable. But given the low state of American academia today, it is not at all surprising. Read more at: Islamic Supremacist Nominated as UC Student Regent | FrontPage Magazine
If you think radicalization cannot happen in the United States, here is Orange County’s Adam Ghadan …
Bottom line …
And, lest you not forget, Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President, Mohamed Morsi, lived in Southern California and received his PhD from USC. It is time we stop training our enemies and providing a comfortable home for their propagandists and provocateurs.
Why the University of California Regents would allow a known troublemaker with an anti-America, anti-Jew viewpoint to assume a respected role in university life is beyond me. It is almost as if they are wishing that further politicizing the student body will serve their progressive agenda.
Enough is enough. We need to remove stupid, blind, and corrupt politicians from office – including their appointees who appear to be pro-Muslim and anti-America. Muslims who are using our own laws to classify any criticism of their toxic and intolerant religion as hate speech.
