We live in surreal times. On our most prestigious university campuses, Hamas-designed genocidal campaigns are being conducted by officially recognized student organizations supported by university funds. These organizations – Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA) – were created by operatives of the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of Hamas. Hamas, a terrorist party whose official agendas, inscribed in its charter, are the destruction of the state of Israel and the extermination of the Jews.
Recently, the David Horowitz Freedom Center published a report naming the “10 Campuses Most Friendly to Terrorists” to highlight the worst of these abuses. Two of the most prestigious schools in the Boston area – Harvard University and Brandeis University – made the list. The full documentation of the Jew-hating, genocidal activities of the student organizations supported by these universities runs for many pages (and is available at www.stopthejihadoncampus.org).Read more
Two Russian bombers intercepted by U.S. fighter jets off the California coast on July Fourth could be seen as having raised a metaphorical middle finger to the United States.
"Good morning, American pilots. We are here to greet you on your Fourth of July Independence Day," they said, according to the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
U.S. fighters also intercepted two other Russian Tu-95 bombers the same day off the southern coast of Alaska. In both instances, American fighter jets flew up to intercept the Russian bombers, and the aircraft turned away.
The University of California has an anti-Semitism problem. Its name is Students for Justice in Palestine.
Co-founded by Hatem Bazian, a notorious bigot who was described by Rabbi Kahn of the San Francisco Jewish Community Relations Council as being, "more responsible than any other student on campus for trying to make life miserable for Jewish students," the SJP hate group has lived up to his hateful legacy.
As the University of California faces a debate over anti-Semitism between Jewish civil rights groups, concerned by the atmosphere of hate on campus, and Students for Justice in Palestine, which is responsible for much of the hate, one Jewish civil rights group reports that 70 testimonials have been collected from UC Jewish students describing intimidation by SJP and other BDS hate groups.
Jewish students describe being told, “Hitler was right” by a Students for Justice in Palestine member and being called “Kike” and “Dirty Jew” by SJP bigots.Read more
With its websites FrontPage Mag, Jihad Watch, and TruthRevolt, the David Horowitz Freedom Center is home to some of the most prominent warriors in the fight against the unholy alliance of radical Islam and the radical left: Horowitz himself, Peter Collier, Robert Spencer, and Daniel Greenfield, to name a few. But the dynamo that powers the Freedom Center, the unsung beating heart of the organization, is its Chief Operating Officer Michael Finch. Finch – full disclosure – is also a friend of mine, and as such I am proud to introduce to FrontPage readers his first work of poetry, Finding Home.
Considering the Freedom Center’s aggressive political work, poetry may not be something one would expect to find as part of its intellectual arsenal. But as many conservative writers such as Andrew Klavan and myself have noted for years, reclaiming America means reclaiming the culture, and that means engaging in the arts. As Finch writes in his introduction, “[I]f as a people, and a nation, we can return to something lost, recovering something from our culture that has been torn, then it can only happen through art.” The art of Finding Home is Michael Finch’s deeply personal contribution to the culture war.Read more

The Jewish Press: When you call a university “friendly to terrorists,” what do you mean?
Horowitz: We have groups on American campuses led by Students for Justice in Palestine and the Muslim Students Association promoting terrorist propaganda.
For example, MSA and SJP sponsor Israel Apartheid Week and erect giant apartheid walls. In addition to paying tribute to terrorists like Sheikh Yassin, who was the founder of Hamas and responsible for over 390 murders, a main feature of these walls is a four-panel map which was created by Hamas. The map shows the entire Israel in green, calls it Palestine, dates it 1947, and then purports to show how Jews infiltrated the Palestinian state – which is of course a big lie.
They also chant, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” Well, the river is the Jordan and the sea is the Mediterranean. Those are the east and west boundaries of the state of Israel. So what they’re really chanting is “Death to Israel.”Read more
