The Fouse Report: 13 Sep 08

Guess Who's Outraged Now-USC Muslim Student Association

By Gary Fouse

Recently, I reported on the decision of the University of Southern California to order the Muslim Student Association to remove a controversial hadith from its (university sponsored) web site.Predictably, the MSA has responded with outrage.A statement issued by the Muslim Student Union at USC suggested that the hadith was being taken out of context, and called the school's decision to remove it from the website "unprecedented and unconscionable." (Israel Today- September 12, 2008) Taken out of context? I will again post it and let the reader decide.“Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him….” Question for the MSA at USC: What part of that was taken out of context? Specifically what words are taken out of context? What words are misunderstood?I recently received a response to my original post from a certain Mohammad attaching an article whose thesis is that hadiths are subject to debate among Islamic scholars. Fine, but my point is this: Whatever the history behind the hadith, the central point is that the Muslim Student Association at USC chose to put it up on their university website. So, as far as I am concerned, the MSA can be outraged all they want. They can have CAIR file a lawsuit on their behalf. The wording in the hadith is unacceptable in a civilized and pluralistic society. We cannot allow this kind of ignorant, hateful language that advocates murder against our Jewish fellow citizens. If these students want to propagate this kind of language and sentiment, there are other countries where they can go and live-not here.

Independent Task Force on Anti-Semitism at the University of California at Irvine

With the permission of Ted Bleiweis, Director of the Orange County Independent Task Force on Anti-Semitism, I am attaching their report on the situation at the University of California at Irvine involving anti-Semitic activities by the Muslim Student Union. It is lengthly, but it bears reading. It is a damning indictment of the MSU at UCI and the negligence of the university.

  1. Nothing will happen until someone forces the issue with a lawsuit. And I hope that a student does it soon. Put the school, faculty, administration, board of regents, and the governor (he is considered the head of all public schools in California) on the record for this behavior. Make them pay cash for their lack of understanding and anti-Semitism (that is one thing all those people understand) and then maybe something will change.

    As for the MSU, if they put it back up, it will give every Jewish student grounds for the above lawsuit. So let them.

  2. My money's on the MSU filing a freedom of speech lawsuit and winning.

    Especially in California, where a judge overturned VOTER APPROVED LEGISLATION, that situation is very likely to occur, and it will only reinforce the impatience with which I await the day that the San Andreas Fault moves California into Canada.

  3. You know, only a few years ago, there wasn't a huge amount to read about the Islamist influence on the western world and its effects. Now I can't keep up - it is one absurdity after another. We are in deep trouble if we do no unite and fight Islam in our lands now.
