SHERMAN OAKS, CA -- Harvard, Columbia and Brandeis are among 10 American universities cited by the David Horowitz Freedom Center as among the “most friendly” in the nation to Islamic terrorists against Israel.
Citing the Muslim Students Association (MSA) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) – both created by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, godfather group to al-Qaeda and Hamas – Horowitz charged that the universities provide “financial and institutional support” to organizations on their campuses that “support the agendas of these terrorists and spread their propaganda lies.”
In alphabetical order, the ten universities are: Brandeis University; Columbia University; Harvard University; Rutgers University-New Brunswick; San Francisco State University; University of California, Irvine; University of California, Los Angeles; University of California, San Diego; University of Michigan-Ann Arbor; and the University of New Mexico.
“These terrorist supported organizations are afforded campus privileges, including university offices and the right to hold events on campus grounds that would be denied to any other group that preached hatred of ethnic groups or supported barbaric terrorists who slaughter men, women and children as part of a demented mission to cleanse the earth of infidels,” said David Horowitz, who heads the eponymous organization.“We are publishing this report to put a spotlight on these American college campuses most supportive of these sinister activities, which put not only our ally Israel in danger, but our homeland as well.”
MSA and SJP are the chief sponsors of annual campus events called “Israeli Apartheid Weeks,” said Mr. Horowitz, adding:
“They lead chants which call for the destruction of the Jewish state ‘from the river to the sea.’ They are the chief sponsors of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, inspired by Hamas, whose goal is the economic strangulation of the Jewish state.”
Noting the savagery of al-Qaeda, ISIS and Hamas, Horowitz noted that “leaders of the Muslim Students Association have gone on to high-level positions in al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. The most notorious of these was Anwar al-Awlaki, the head of al-Qaeda in the Yemen, who inspired the Fort Hood massacre and who before that was president of the Muslim Students Association at Colorado State.
Horowitz also reprinted four maps by Hamas “that have been spread across American campuses by SJP, MSA and their leftwing allies, often with funds and support provided by college administrations. These maps are genocidal lies, featured on every Israeli Apartheid Wall erected with the student funds provided to these groups. They purport to show a Palestinian state in 1947, which is steadily infiltrated and occupied by Jews who transform it into today’s Israel.”
In reality, he noted, “there never was a state called Palestine, and the State of Israel was created by the United Nations, not out of land that belonged to the Arabs, but out of land that belonged to the Turks for 400 years until they joined the aggressors in World War I.”
“These fraudulent maps were designed by Hamas to justify the extermination of the Jews, as called for in the Hamas Charter, and the destruction of the Jewish state.”
