Nazism in our campuses...

If anyone thinks that our “hallowed” halls of higher education aren’t cesspools of marxist-socialist-atheistic propaganda, read on…

I’m sorry I just think this article is ridiculous


#3

Ok. What do you find ridiculous?

The issue is academic freedom in a college setting. This is an event that people may choose to attend or not. To me it is a ridiculous organization, full of hate and respected by no one. BUT…they are getting their chance to speak. I would assume the IDF or the AZM might be allowed the same opportunity on the principle of academic freedom and that college students might learn a few things about all these groups (and not necessarily the things the groups HOPE they learn!).
The PoliSci dept. ain’t funding it…so I don’t see any problem with letting jerks make jerks of themselves to a wider audience.
I complained more when Anne Coulter wasn’t allowed to speak at Fordham a couple of months ago. Ann Coulter Silenced: Speaking Invitation Revoked By Cowardly College Republicans in Dubious Victory For Political Correctness
What’s good for the goose etc…


#5

Because the polisci dept isn’t funding it. What it sounds like the author is proposing is a stifling of free speech. You stifle this movement and they will play the martyr and college students will rally behind them.

Nobody has to go to this thing.

I personally can’t stand Israel, I think they are bullies akin to South Africa under apartheid. This has nothing to do with Jews. This has to do with a state being a bully. Of course I should be prepared to be called an anti Semite


#6

How is Israel being a bully? Israel is one of the smallest countries in the middle east. Don’t you think they have a right to protect themselves? I’m not going to call you an anti-semite. I don’t know you well enough at this point and so far you haven’t made any comments which would lead me to believe that you are. I would like to know what it is exactly that makes you hate Israel?


#7

The way they treat Palestinians. If I lived in Palestine then I’d be shooting the Israeli soldiers too. How a state that is ruled by a people that suffered such a tragedy can then go and commit a tragedy onto others is mind blowing to me. Absolutely disgusting.

At this point, I haven’t any respect for the Israeli government.

BOP: I don’t know much about the Palestinian/Israel conflict, but here’s a little of what I know:

“With the outcome of the First World War, the relations between Zionism and the Arab national movement seemed to be potentially friendly, and the Faisal–Weizmann Agreement created a framework for both aspirations to coexist on former Ottoman Empire’s territories. However, with the defeat and dissolution of the Arab Kingdom of Syria in July 1920, following the Franco-Syrian War, a crisis fell upon the Damascus-based Arab national movement. Return of several hard-line Palestinian Arab nationalists, under the emerging leadership of Haj Amin al-Husseini, from Damascus to Mandatory Palestine marked the beginning of Palestinian Arab nationalist struggle towards establishment of national home for Arabs of Palestine. Amin al-Husseini, the architect of the Palestinian Arab national movement, immediately marked Jewish national movement and Jewish immigration to Palestine as the sole enemy to his cause,[10] initiating large-scale riots against the Jews as early as 1920 in Jerusalem and in 1921 in Jaffa. Among the results of the violence was the establishment of Jewish paramilitary force of Haganah. In 1929, a series of violent anti-Jewish riots was initiated by the Arab leadership. The riots resulted in massive Jewish casualties in Hebron and Safed, and the evacuation of Jews from Hebron and Gaza.” (Wikipedia)

It seems that, at least initially, Palestine was the aggressor. I will have to do more reading to find out what happened next.

Israel has been under fire from the start. A lot of folks just want that state to lay down for its enemies. It’s one nation I support supporting. Its modern problems were exacerbated by the colonial powers that said, “Hey, here ya go, how about we set you free amidst a pack of wolves,” and left the Israelis to fend for themselves against many enemies. There’s nothing wrong with helping friends defend themselves, and Israel has been defending itself against those who would victimize it as long as it has existed.

Although I’m generally very much in favor of isolationism.

PS – Sorry my comments weren’t directed at the original post but rather the subsequent discussion.


#10

And since 1929 then Israel has taken Palestinian land. No doubt saying that this in defense of Israeli citizens. Quite laughable when you consider the amount of Palestinians killed by Israel compared to the amount of Israelis killed by Palestinians. Israel is not a country that is “defending” itself.

Palestine wins the statehood vote in the UN in an effort to be a legitimate state and Netanyahu, the tool he is pledges to build 3,000 new settler homes in an area that Palestine was planning as a future state. The UN and many countries condemned this announcement and said it was inflammatory. Israel is an aggressor that plays the victim.


#11

BOP: No disrespect intended, but I hold anything the UN does as suspect. The U.N. has no business involving itself in U.S. policy, or anyone else’s for that matter.


#12

It wasn’t in anyone’s business. It was giving statehood to Palestine. Which means a large amount of countries voted palestine a state. Except us and Israel.

If you don’t accept the UN then just consider that many countries granted Palestine statehood and many countries condemned Netanyahu’s response to that statehood.


#13

Personally, I think it’s unbelievable that we don’t go to palestine’s defense. We can’t claim to be the liberators of the oppressed but then witness the treatment of Palestine and set idly by.

I would never fight a war helping Israel unless the Israeli civilians were being slaughtered. I hate the Israeli state. Sadly, if and when someone gets tired of Israel’s aggression then it won’t be the rulers who pay, it’ll be the civilians. However I will never fight or support a war aiding Israel in an imperialist war masked as a defensive strike


#14

I would be interested to find out which nations granted Palestine statehood and condemned Netanyahu’s response–and why they had any say-so in it.


#15

How else would Palestine get statehood? In order to get statehood then you have to be recognized as legitimate by other countries. That’s how it always goes.

Every country that is green voted yes. The governments that voted no account for only 366 million of the world population (7 bil). Pretty overwhelming victory for Palestine. Seems like everyone but us,Canada, and Israel believe in freedom from oppression.

While the UN during its founding period was limited to those nations that declared war on at least one of the Axis powers of World War II, and thus were capable of taking a stand against evil, the modern United Nations has become diluted to the point where only 75 of the 184 member states “were free democracies, according to Freedom House.” (Gold, D. Tower of Babble: How the United Nations Has Fueled Global Chaos 2005) Gold further claimed that this had the effect of tipping the scales of the UN so that the organization as a whole was more amenable to the requirements of dictatorships.

This book also criticized what it called the organization’s moral relativism in the face of (and occasional support of) genocide and terrorism that occurred between the moral clarity of its founding period and the present day.

The United Nations Population Control (UNPC) has provided support for government programs which have promoted forced-abortions and coercive sterilizations. An example of the UN’s ineffectiveness in preventing genocide occurred in the Srebrenica massacre where Serbian troops committed genocide against Bosnian Muslims in the largest case of mass murder on the European continent since World War II. Srebrenica had been declared a UN “safe area” and was even protected by 400 armed Dutch peace keepers, but the UN forces did nothing to prevent the massacre.

Recently, the most prominent and dramatic example is the Darfur crisis, in which Arab Janjaweed militias, supported by the Sudanese government, committed repeated acts of ethnic cleansing and genocide against the indigenous population. Thus far, an estimated 300,000 civilians have been killed in what is the largest case of mass murder in the history of the region, yet the UN has continuously failed to act against this severe and ongoing human rights issue.

Thus, I believe the UN has out-lived its purpose and usefulness and has become an arm of the “one world government” people like BO and his ilk are striving for.


#18

Okay and what about the governments that represent 6.6 billion people of the planet voting yes to Palestinian statehood? I’m not sure why you keep going off on tangents about the UN. The fact of the matter is that nearly every country in the world voted yes on Palestinian statehood.

The topic of the UN and its effectiveness is a completely different topic


#19

You were the one who brought up the UN. I am merely responding to your comment. And actually, this business with Palestine/Israel/UN is COMPLETELY off the topic anyway.

[/quote]It all goes back to self-defense. This is a nation that has been under perpetual attack since its foundation.

As for a UN vote, I’m glad you accept the authority of all the other nations on earth in a nice “democratic” way. Am I correct to suppose you would happily accept the united nations of earth making decisions for your nation and writing rules for you to live by?

[/quote]It seems like only the United States, Canada and Israel are the only ones who believe Israel should be allowed to defend itself against an ongoing Muslim attack against it. I find it revolting that so many people would just as soon see it burn, but there are those who think that an individual attacked in his home should lay down and die to the home invader – so it’s hardly surprising.
