Hatem Bazian's Trader Joes Boycott Flop

Hat tip Pro-Israel Bay Bloggers

Hatem Bazian

UC Berkeley Professor Hatem Bazian, who is usually busy trying to destroy the Jewish state of Israel, has recently called for a boycott of Trader Joes. Why? Because Trader Joes sells Israeli food products. So Bazian gets on his Facebook page and calls for a boycott of the company.

Guess what?

Business is booming and Israeli products are flying off the shelves. Pro-Israel Bay Bloggers has the report.

Bazian, who washed up on our shores from the West Bank, studied at San Francisco State University, and immediately began harassing Jewish students on campus over the Israel issue. He went on to get a PhD and become a professor at UC Berkeley, from where he has continued his anti-Israel campaign. He has co-founded a number of toxic organizations including Students for Justice in Palestine, a brown shirt student organization dedicated to disrupting pro-Israel events and intimidating Jewish pro-Israel students. He also co-founded American Muslims for Palestine, which provides funding to SJP. Moreover, Bazian co-founded something at UCB called the Islamophobia Research and Documentation Center, which largely exists in a small room on campus with a computer with just enough mini-bytes to contain all the "Islamophobic" incidents against Muslims in America. Too bad he didn't found an "Islamic Crimes Against Humanity Research and Documentation Center". That would have merited an entire building with hundreds of computers and billions of giga-bytes.

I have seen this man speak three times, twice at UC Irvine and once at Loyola Marymount University. The latter event was put on by local Islamists and dedicated to promoting sharia law. On one occasion at UC Irvine, I asked him pointedly about anti-Jewish statements that had been attributed to him. I got no straight answer.

Having taught part-time at UC Irvine (1998-2016), I know that UCI and the UC system as a whole have many good, professional  teachers and educators. Unfortunately, they are overshadowed by the radical left-wing activists, many of whom are driven by a hatred of Israel as a Jewish state. Like universities all over the country, they have brought discredit and embarrassment to their respective institutions-not to mention exploding anti-Semitism. Hatem Bazian is right up there at the top.
