The ADL tweeted out a column by Pro-Israel students in Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin arguing against watchdog group Canary Mission by saying that a “blacklist of BDS supporters is hurting our efforts to defend Israel.” I’m not feeling this implication right off the bat that blacklists necessarily hurt anyone. They only have as much power as their readers give them. Anyway, the students say Canary Mission “uses intimidation tactics, is antithetical to our democratic and Jewish values, is counterproductive to our efforts and is morally reprehensible.”
“Intimidation” and “morally reprehensible” are subjective fluff, but do your democratic and Jewish values really not enable you to create and maintain lists online? No. The only thing that should matter here is how “counterproductive” Canary Mission’s tracking of anti-Israel bias is to your activism. So let’s look into that.
The students say Canary “promot[es] a negative perception of Muslims” and that they “view much of the rhetoric employed to villainize these individuals as hateful and, in some cases, Islamophobic and racist.”
Ok, pause. Exactly what rhetoric does Canary employ? Here’s one of the site’s profiles, this one for Nadera Masad of McMaster University. The only incendiary quotes on this page are Masad’s own words: “Death to America and all white people,” death to Israel and all Zionists,” “white people are the face of terrorism.” If it’s their own words, how can you accuse Canary of painting the negative perception?
Now, one reasonable concern these students have is that blacklists are pushing anti-Israel activism underground. Pro-BDS students at the University of Michigan and George Washington University used the prospect of ending up blacklisted to create secret ballots for BDS proposals so supporters of divesting from Israel couldn’t be identified. OK, but that’s the funny thing about stigma: it makes people want to seek anonymity. The more successful pro-Israel students are on campus, the more the anti-Israel lobby will be driven underground.
Leftists Cannibalize Themselves Over Israel-Hatred
Former Drexel University professor and current New York University scholar George Ciccariello-Maher, who tweeted “all I want for Christmas is white genocide” and blamed the Las Vegas massacre on the “white supremacist patriarchy” fought with Senator Bernie Sanders over Israel. The senator said:
“Over 50 killed in Gaza today and 2,000 wounded, on top of the 41 killed and more than 9,000 wounded over the past weeks. This is a staggering toll. Hamas violence does not justify Israel firing on unarmed protesters.”
That wasn’t good enough for the professor, who responded “What ‘Hamas violence,’ you fucking coward?”
Well I’ll tell you what Hamas violence, Georgie. The terrorist group mobilized Palestinians by the tens of thousands to attack Israel with everything from kite bombs and molotov cocktails to rocks and meat cleavers. Hamas purposefully inserts its members and weapons alongside even peaceful protesters, so when Israel attempts to neutralize those threats, civilian casualties are sometimes inevitable. Hamas is encouraged to cause the death of Palestinians that are attacking Israel’s border and those who aren’t because the media will spin it as Israel killing civilians.
But Ciccariello-Maher vs. Sanders wasn’t the only progressive in-fighting over Israel. Remember the scholar Steven Salaita? The University of Illinois withdrew its employment offer to Salaita after tweets in which the academic said “You may be too refined to say it, but I’m not: I wish all the fucking West Bank settlers would go missing” and “At this point, if Netanyahu appeared on TV with a necklace made from the teeth of Palestinian children, would anybody be surprised? #Gaza”
He sued the school after it turned him away and eventually settled for over half a million dollars. But Salaita harangued Rabia Chaudry, a vehement anti-Trumper who, amid anti-Israel remarks, said a few things he did not like. Salaita tweeted:
“[Rabia Chaudry] has nothing but mealymouthed bullshit to say about Israel’s latest massacre in Gaza (with which she is complicit). She saves her tough-talk for Palestinians who dare to criticize her violent careerism.”
Pro-Palestine Student Says He’ll Throw Rocks At Jews
University of Houston student Tarek Abdoh is really excited to throw rocks at Jews, according to Canary Mission. University of Memphis student Nadeen Elayan is also really keen on committing assault, saying “I wanna throw rocks and shoes at the Jews.” And this isn’t some hollow, figurative reference like “go jump off a cliff.” Palestinians throwing stones at Israelis is extremely common and often results in injuries or even deaths. A situation like the one you just saw resulted in the smashing of a 5-month-old baby’s skull. And these aren’t just tiny pebbles, either. A Palestinian activist murdered an Israeli soldier by chucking a cement block at him.
Now, some pro-Palestine students are less specific in how they plan to hurt Jews. Milwaukee Area Technical College student Belal Abuasi simply tweets “Ima kill a Jew in a month.” He’s also a fan of the terrorist group Hamas, answering the question “do you support Hamas?” with “I support resistance so yes.” He also falsely claimed “Hamas refused to kill Israeli civilians.” In fact, Hamas has launched numerous suicide attacks and rocket strikes on Israeli civilians.
Next up we have Dima Jubara, a Valencia College Muslim student who has an uncanny passion for saying “God will kill the Jews.” July 2015, she informs the public “God will kill the Jews.” October 2016, she says “if I had a dollar for every time I’ve said God will kill the Jews.” November 2016, she opened up a bit about her personal life, saying “in this house we pray that God will kill the Jews.” And don’t think this hatred is confined to Jews. Pro-Palestinian students also seem to loathe whites, as evidenced by Jubara’s tweet right here. Students for Justice in Palestine activist Sabrina Ghaus of Tufts University tweeted “today i purposely tripped a white lady who literally could not see me because as a brown woman i don’t exist and am not human.”
Ladies and gentlemen, the tolerant left. Donald Trump’s usage of a six-pointed star when showing Hillary’s corruption becomes evidence of his rampant anti-Semitism to progressives, but utter silence from the left when their pet victims actually say they hate Jewish people and incite violence against them.
Hitler-Obsessed McMaster Students Say ‘Death To America’ And ‘Get Rid’ Of Jews
“Hitler should have took you all,” “every time I read about Hitler, I fall in love all over again,” and salivating over a picture of Hitler in stockings, what do these tweets have in common? Well, it just so happens they were all made by pro-Palestinian students at McMaster University. Who are these nutcases and what other incitement and incoherent hatred are they peddling?
Nadera Masad, Rawan Qaddoura, and Esra Bengizi are all students at McMaster University, where, aside from being infatuated with Hitler, they do activism with the group Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights. But you wouldn’t know it from their Twitter accounts, where they seem very ANTI-human rights.
“Death to America and white people,” tweeted Masad, who apparently has a really rough time keeping her story straight. She says “Arabs and Muslims who refer to our enemies as ‘Jews’ rather than ZIONISTS make a bad image for the rest of us. We’re not racist, stop.” Ok, but then how do you explain these tweets? “Adolf Hitler; if you had taken them all, the world would have a lot less problems right now.” “The reason I kept some Jews alive is so I can show you why I killed them in the first place,” a quote she attributes to Hitler.
Masad found out that watchdog group Canary Mission was keeping tabs on her and called them out publicly, in her usual, eloquent style, but she must have had second thoughts because she appears to have taken some advice from Hillary and #DeletedHerAccount.
Her fellow McMaster student and Palestine activist Esra Bengizi at least admits that “what Hitler did was wrong,” but still seems to have an uncanny fixation on him, posting positively about him on more than 10 occasions. Oh and she’s also not a huge fan of Jews, saying she’s “going to the [sic] rule the world and and get rid of anyone who doesn’t have basic common sense of if you’re yahoodi [Jewish].” I wonder if she appreciates the irony of publicly admitting she’d “get rid” of a whole religious group in the same tweet where she also criticizes people who lack basic common sense.
Unfortunately, Bengizi’s also deleted her account, so we and her future employers only have access to the 100+ delightful screenshots captured by Canary Mission. The same goes for the last McMaster student, Qaddoura, who laments that she wasn’t “born at the time of the second world war just to see the genius, Hitler, at work.” Aw, poor thing. And surprise, surprise, she also just doesn’t like Jews. But remember folks, these ladies are anti-ZIONIST, not anti-Semitic.
Honestly, it’s one thing to have different political opinions, test out new ideologies; that’s what college is all about. Feel free to share whatever zany thoughts you have about white privilege or how you think Palestinians do nothing wrong. But saying “death to whites,” saying the only good Zionist is a dead Zionist, well, there’s a difference between insight and incitement.
