On Monday, the David Horowitz Freedom Center launched its new website,www.JewHatredonCampus.org and released a report detailing the “Ten Campuses with the Worst Anti-Semitic Activity.” Among them were schools like UCLA, Temple University, Vassar College, and San Diego State University.
The campuses selected for the Top Ten featured a near-constant barrage of anti-Jewish sentiment including anti-Semitic speakers, so-called “Apartheid weeks” that falsify Israel’s enviable record on human rights while ignoring the miserable record of the Palestinians and other Arab nations, threats of violence delivered both in-person and through social media, rallies to support convicted terrorists such as Rasmea Odeh, and other demonstrations resulting in a climate of fear and intimidation for Jewish students on these campuses.Read more

On Sunday, February 22, posters depicting Students for Justice in Palestine as a group that spreads Jew-hatred and supports terror appeared on a number of college campuses including the University of California, Los Angeles. SJP has accused the posters of constituting hate speech, specifically of being “Islamophobic” and “anti-Arab.” This is a typical SJP deception since the posters say nothing about Islam or Arabs. The core of SJP’s response is equally fictional:
These posters are a clear example of hate speech directed against Students for Justice in Palestine, as well as supporters of Palestinian freedom and equality. They rely on Islamophobic and anti-Arab tropes to paint Palestinians as terrorists and to misrepresent Students for Justice in Palestine as anti-Semitic. It hardly bears repeating that SJP at UCLA is an organization that prides itself on its opposition to all forms of racism and bigotry, and which is open to and promotes the membership of students from all walks of life.Read more
Barack Obama aroused controversy over his affinity with Islam yet again in February 2015, when a photo surfaced from the U.S.-African Leaders’ Summit in August 2014, showing Obama passing by a group of African delegates with his right index finger raised in a gesture strongly reminiscent of the Islamic State’s now notorious one-finger salute.
For the Islamic State and other Muslims, this gesture signifies allegiance to Islam’s absolute monotheism. Whatever Obama may have meant by it, the revelation that he had made the gesture — coming so soon after his renewed refusal at his “Countering Violent Extremism” summit to identify Islamic jihadists as Islamic — raised new questions about Obama’s relationship with Islam.Read more
Walk into a store and you’ll see piles of red and pink in the Clearance box. Everything from heart-shaped cards and boxes of chocolate candy to plastic flowers and teddy bears clutching plush red hearts will be 50 percent off because Valentine’s Day comes but once a year. And Valentine’s Day is over.
Obama’s love for America also comes but once a year. He tosses it into a speech in the Midwest when his poll numbers are down and then it goes into the clearance box where you can buy his love and his patriotism for 50 percent off. And it’s still expensive at the price because the heart-shaped box is empty.Read more
