A Liberal Israeli Network Tries to Advance the SJP Agenda

Forward is a liberal Israeli news outlet. They have published an article on the week of events at UC Irvine last month, during which a presentation by Israeli military veterans was disrupted. The below article in Forward presents the pro-Palestinian narrative that negatively depicted the five reservists who were on the ground at UC Irvine in May to counter the anti-Israel propaganda being presented during the annual May anti-Israel program. In this article you can view a video put out by Palestine Legal. The video alleges  harassment on the part of the Israeli veterans as the Students for Justice in Palestine and the Muslim Student Union were holding their annual May week of events dedicated to delegitimizing the state of Israel.

You will note that none of the claims of harassment or improper behavior are corroborated by the film. If anything, the film proves that SJP and others disrupted the May 10 Reservists on Duty event hosted by Students Supporting Palestin (UCI). It simply leaves out the ugliest parts. I would also add that the Palestinian student from Gaza who lectures the reservists in that video got up and left the room as soon as the reservists responded to his remarks.

But all that has already been documented by Yours Truly.

I was present at the May 10 event. When the 30-40 SJP/MSU/American Indian Student Association students entered the room, I turned on my video camera knowing that a disruption was imminent. Here it is.

So now, removing my own video from the conversation, we have dueling videos because Reservists on Duty have released a video showing their side of the controversy.

Here is what I observed aside from the May 10 incident. The anti-Israel week of events lasts four days, Monday-Thursday. Aside from the May 10 (Wednesday evening ) event, I was present on campus for two of the four days including Day 4 (Thursday). What I observed was the five Israeli vets standing around the SJP/MSU mock apartheid wall talking to passers-by, passing out their own pamphlets, and holding their own posters. Thursday (Day 4) was the most heated. At times, the reservists stood a few feet away from the pro-Palestinian demonstrators as the latter were shouting their words and chants into bullhorn. They followed the protesters as they marched to the Administration Building and around Ring Road. I witnessed no assaults or threats by either side. To be accurate, I add that on two of the afternoon events, I was not present. In addition, I did not witness the march around Ring Road described above.

I also point out that early in the Palestinian-promoted video they show a young American man standing at the Palestinian table and engaged in a back and forth. This young man was present the previous evening at the May 10 disruption. He sat in the back of the room, said nothing, and took no action whatsoever. The following day, he engaged in debate with the pro-Palestinian side. He alleged that while he was at the Palestinian table, one young man said to him, "Go away white man." Of course, we have no corroboration of that through any of the video tapes. The young man stated to me personally that he was not a UCI student.

I have stated this before, but I  think it is worthwhile to describe the five reservists. Two were American-born females who had immigrated to Israel. The third was an American-born man who had immigrated to Israel, The fourth was a Lebanese-born gay Christian whose family were refugees to Israel from Lebanon. The fifth was a Bedouin Muslim. To be sure, they stood their ground against the provocations of the pro-Palestinian students. Yet, I personally observed no improper behavior on their part.

A final word on these five young Israeli veterans. If you go back to the video I took of the May 10 incident, I pointedly asked the protesters how many of them had  (like the Israeli veterans) served their county in uniform. The shouted answer was "Never", and that unleashed the disruption and chanting. Very telling, indeed.

Flint Terrorist: Amor Ftouhi

Amor Ftouhi (Facebook)

The man who attacked a Flint airport cop with a knife, stabbing him in the neck is identified as Amor Ftouhi, a 50-year-old Canadian citizen but native of Tunisia. He reportedly told arresting officers that he carried out the attack because Americans were "killing people in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and that (Americans) will all die".

We need to be concerned about some of the people running around up there in Canada. I am not talking about Canadians. I am talking about many of the Muslims they have let into their country, naturalized, and can now come into the US with Canadian passports.

Canada has a liberal prime minister in Justin Trudeau, who is pledged to bring in thousands more Syrian "refugees".

Unfortunately, these incidents will continue. Ftouhi is probably a lone wolf answering the call from ISIS to attack and kill people any way he could. I am hopeful that the charges will go beyond  a simple attack and that federal terrorism charges will be brought that will put this guy away for at least the next 30 years.

Palestinian Terrorist's Mom is Proud of Her Son

Hat tip World Israel News

Not only has Fatha claimed credit for the murder of an Israeli policewoman on Friday, but one of the killer's mothers, also under arrest, has expressed pride in the actions of her son.

This is as sick as it gets. Of course, this is not atypical when it comes to the Palestinians. This is how parents raise their children.

You can't make peace with this type of mentality. It has to be isolated behind the biggest wall humans are capable of constructing.

Jihad Comes to Flint, Michigan

Today, a police officer was stabbed in the neck at Flint airport in Michigan. The attacker reportedly yelled, "Allahu Akbar" before stabbing the officer. He is in custody and is reported to be from Quebec and holding a Canadian passport.


"Allahu Akbar". There's your motive.

Update: Suspect is also reported to be an Arabic speaker. This reminds me of Criminal Investigation 101.

Reservists on Duty at UC Irvine

Hat tip to Camera on Campus for sending me this video.

I have posted several articles and videos from Last month's anti-Israel week of events sponsored by the UC Irvine Muslim Student Union and Students for Justice in Palestine. As I write, SJP is still under investigation by the university for their May 10 disruption of an event held by Students Supporting Israel and featuring five Israeli Defense Forces veterans who are part of an organization called Reservists on Duty.

Here is a short video put out by Reservists on Duty showing how they stood up to the SJP and their allies. You will also note the use of  inflammatory language caught on tape from the SJP crowd.

At UC Berkeley-Another Dirks Scandal

Ridiculous Nicholas Dirks

Never let it be said that (still) out-going UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks is going out quietly. Now a new cloud hangs over Ridiculous Nicholas and the university. The campus paper, Daily Californian, has an article about Dirks' former house manager and some questionable income tax forms.

The entire University of California system under Janet Napolitano has been clouded in financial funny business for some time now. Tuition increases, in-state tuition for illegal alien students, $175 million in secret funds recently discovered, etc.

Napolitano needs to go.

More on the Brussels Train Station Bombing

Hat tip Gates of Vienna and Ava Lon

As previously reported, a Muslim guy set off a bomb in his suitcases at the Brussels train station yesterday screaming,  "Allahu Akhbar", before a soldier put him out of his misery. Below, you can hear the eyewitness testimony of an airport worker. The interview is in French, but our friend, Ava Lon, has supplied the sub-titles.

Unfortunately for the bumbling bomber, he didn't kill any infidels (not even an injury). Therefore, he fell somewhat short of earning those 72 virgins.

Would You Call This Race Hatred?

Hat tip Daily Wire

We have yet another case of someone in academia bashing white people. This one is more than just laughable. It is egregious and ugly. A guy named Johnny Williams at Trinity University (Hartford, Connecticut) says that according to his theory of decoding intersectionality, white people are, ahem, a bunch of rectal orifices who should "f-ing die".

I can see from the quotes that Johnny has mastered the academic mumbo-jumbo, but as always, it makes no sense. For example, my spellchecker indicates to me that "intersectionality" is not a word. Umm. Let me try "heteronormativity".


Fatah Claims Credit for Murder of Israeli Policewoman

If the Democrats want an example of real collusion looks like, they might want to read this story.

Fatah is the party of Mahmoud Abbas, the man Israel is supposed to make a peace deal with. Not only Fatah has taken credit, but ISIS and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine as well. I guess it must have been a task force operation one terrorist from each organization.

That certainly makes for a stronger case than any collusion between Trump and the Russians.

If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium

Image result for if it's tuesday this must be belgium

That was the title of some dopey movie back in the 70s. Coincidentally, on Tuesday,  Muslim guy yelled, "Allahu Akbar" and set off a small bomb at the Brussels train station. The soldiers quickly blew the guy away. Nobody else was hurt.

Monday it was Paris. I wonder where they'll strike Wednesday.

Another Nakba at UCLA

UCLA is the home of something called the Center for Near East Studies, which consists of a bunch of Israel-haters masquerading as academics. It features such luminaries as James (Dr. Doom) Gelvin and Gabriel (Huggy Boy) Piterberg. Gabe is a well-known figure around campus since there are alerts for all co-eds to steer clear of the "Kissing professor". But I digress.

                                                                                  Gelvin (in foreground)

In April, CNES held yet another conference dedicated to bashing Israel. My friend and colleague, Eric Golub, attended and wrote a report for Algemeiner and Campus Watch. The conference made history for coining a new term to describe the Arab inability to beat Israel at war. Instead of Nakba (catastrophe), it is Naksa (setback). That is to describe what happened when the Arab world initiated a war with Israel in 1967 (with nakbarian consequences for them).

Here is Eric's report.

                                                                          "Good news, mein Fuehrer. It's only a setback."

(I wonder what they'll call the 1973 failure to defeat Israel.)

Honestly, don't these people get tired putting on these same old conferences about Israel? It must be to justify their existence. The Center  for Near East Studies is a true nakba for UCLA. This conference was obviously just the latest, er, naksa.

June Chu Out as Yale Dean

June Chu, the Yale University dean of residential Pierson College who got caught making a series of comments trashing white people on social media, has been placed "on leave" by the university.

When the story first hit in May, I wrote this about it. I have not changed my opinion.

Of course, I don't know the difference between being suspended and placed on leave, but if Yale is appointing a new dean, that means she is gone from the position.
