Pass the halucinagens

jerksI was not going to post again before Shabbos, but could not resist. 

In an recent article in the OC Register on the MSU Holocaust in the Holy Land Week, Sally Peterson, the Dean of Students has this remarkable quote:

“In general, Muslim and Jewish students are comfortable on this campus and many are not involved in this issue at all,” Peterson said.

If this quote is accurate— and lets give Sally the benefit of the doubt because the article is so poorly researched—then clearly the Administration at UCI should not be held liable for their inability to see reality as it happens. Becuase they have been slipped halucinagens!

Jewish students were in tears, one went to the counselling center rather than get a gun.  They sat stunned and dazed. They told me how upset they were.  Students are looking to transfer out of UCI to more hospitable places.

I’ll send a email her way, to verify the quote.  If its for real, well, we had better look into who migh profit from drugging the entire administration’s water supply.  This isn’t getting any prettier. 

NOTE: I spoke with Sally Petterson the Dean today about the comment and she verified that it was accurate. After I expressed my own vantage-point she said that perhaps she could have qualified her statement to include those students that are upset.

We Shall Overcome

we shall overcome

A week of anti-Jewish, anti-Israel incitement and hate-speech, vilification and taunting of Jewish students, loud support for Hamas, suicide bombing, and the destruction of Israel, false accusations, blood libel, chants of Allah Hu Akbar, and angry marches around the campus have finished for now.

The Jewish Students faced an incredible week of hate, and many wondering why are they on the most anti-Jewish campus in the country?

The hate in the eyes of the Muslims students grew more intense as the week wore on, and they were subjected to speech after speech of incendiary lies and propaganda by so-called religious leaders.

The University maintained its policy of silence, but sent out dozens of police and administrators. The police definitely kept the peace, otherwise things would have been ugly. There was a real chance that Jewish students would have been attacked, given the right chance. It was that tense. The Jewish students were cool headed. Sang loud, stood their ground, and were proud. The UC Intifada continues…
At the close of this week we took over the speakers plaza with signs, flowers, and singing. We linked arms, we sat in a circle, we refused to budge. The Muslim students continued their shouts and cries of Jihad, and the Jewish students and community supporters sand songs of peace and hope. We sang Am Yisrael Chai—The People of Israel Live-on!

We refused to be intimidated and shouted down.
