"Anti-Semitism at UCI? What anti-Semitism? Musa, Malik Ali? Never heard of 'em."I am including recent updates from Reut Cohen and Red County Blog on the on-going situation at UCI in regards to MSU-sponsored anti-Semitism. It appears that the university is going on the offense with some of their professors publicly defending the university against charges of tolerating anti-Semitism and other radical expression by the Muslim Student Union and their sponsored hate-mongering speakers.First is a description of two of the MSU's favorite speakers, Addul Alim Musa and Amir Abdel Malik Ali as provided by Reut Cohen, recent UCI grad and former acting secretary of Anteaters for Israel. Next is an article published in the liberal periodical, The Nation by UCI History professor Jon Wiener followed by my own response. Last is an excerpt of an interview of Erwin Chemerinski, newly-hired law school dean by Marlo Jo Fisher in the Orange County Register in which Chemerinski declares he has no knowledge of anti-Semitism at UCI. They are numbered 1-4.1

Abdul Alim Musa and Amir Abdel Malik Ali, two radical imams, are no strangers to UC Irvine where they regularly spread their seething hatred of America, Israel and Jews on behalf of the Muslim Student Union (MSU). These speakers are involved with the As-Sabiqun movement which aims for Islamic revivalism and enabling Islam to take "complete control of ... the lives of all human beings on Earth."
Below is information about both speakers and the radical and hateful As-Sabiqun movement.DiscovertheNetworks.org includes the following information about Musa:Imam Abdul Alim Musa is the founder and director of the As-Sabiqun movement, which aims to “enable Islam to take complete control of … the lives of all human beings on Earth.” He serves as director of Masjid Al-Islam in Washington, DC, and is a senior member of the Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought (ICIT) -- a pro-Iranian, pro-Hezbollah, Islamist think tank. Musa also sits on the governing body of the Muslim Alliance of North America, which is headed by Siraj Wahhaj. In addition, Musa is a frequent speaker on American college campuses, often at the invitation of the Muslim Student Union and chapters of the Muslim Students Association. In 2004 the San Francisco Bay View described Musa as “one of the highest-ranking Islamic leaders in the Black community, nationwide and specifically in the Islamic movement.”
Two days before 9/11 -- at a September 9, 2001 fundraiser at UC Irvine on behalf of the cop-killer Jamil Al-Amin -- Musa said: “Imam Jamil coined a phrase, and that phrase meant this: ‘If you don't give us justice. If you don't give us equality. If you don't give us our share of America. If you don't stay out of our way and leave us alone, we’re gonna burn America down.”During a May 9, 2007 “Islamic Revival” event at UC Irvine Musa discussed his belief that the U.S. carried out the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon: “When you hear about some bomber that blew up the World Trade Center or blew up this or blew up that, I'm telling you brothers and sisters, that is your CIA. That is your government blowing up people, blaming it on us … Didn't Adolph Hitler burn the Reichstag, blame it on the people and he became the Fuhrer and what happened? He could suspend civil liberties. And he could wipe out and he could war against all of his enemies. That's what Adolph Hitler did, isn't that right? He burned the Reichstag himself.... They blew up the World Trade Center, blamed it on us, and then come out with the PATRIOT Act and all these criminal laws. Right?” At the same event, Musa said: “Who ran the slave trade … who funded [it]? You’ll study and you will find out: the Jews … It was the Jewish bankers … in Vienna, with pockets full of money, funding and insuring, that’s who did it…. you can’t tell us about no holocaust. Between the African Americans and the Native Americans, everybody else’s stuff was [supposedly] small potatoes [according to Jews].”
Here is a bio for Amir Abdel Malik Ali:Amir-Abdel Malik-Ali (also known as Abdul Malik Ali and Abd Al-Malik) is a black Imam associated with the Masjid Al Islam mosque in Oakland. A graduate of San Francisco State University and a former Nation of Islam member, he is a frequent guest lecturer at Muslim Student Union and Muslim Students Association events. A passionate supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah, he helped organize a July 1999 rally in San Francisco at which Imam Abdul-Alim Musa proudly displayed a cashier’s check made out to “Hamas, Palestine.” Malik-Ali endorses suicide bombings as a legitimate “resistance” tactic: “Palestinian mothers are supporting their children who are suicide bombers, saying, ‘Go honey, go!’ That ain’t suicide; that’s martyrdom.”Also among Malik-Ali’s notable quotes and positions are the following:“The enemies of Islam know that when we come back to power we’re gonna check ’em.”“Stay conscious and ask Allah to raise the Muslims and give us victory over the disbeliever.”“When it’s all over, the only one standing is gonna be us [Muslims].”“Sooner or later, today’s Muslim students will be the parents of Muslim children. And they should be militants.”“Neo-cons are all Zionist Jews.”\Israelis ought to return “to Germany, to Poland, to Russia. The Germans should hook y’all up. You [Israelis] should go back to Germany.”“In America, you’re mostly fighting with your tongue, but you should also learn how to fight with the sword.”
At the Sixth Annual Muslim Student Association Conference held at UC Berkeley in February 2004, Malik-Ali denounced “the white man, who is the enemy.”At the Universal Heritage Foundation’s December 2003 Islamic Conference in Florida, he warned moderate American Muslims that their desire to be “liked” was turning them into “‘house slaves’ in the mansion of a racist, imperialistic and destructive America.”He has described Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a “pretty good guy.”
