Berkeley College: Arabs Attack Jewish Students - Arab racism & Islamic bigotry
November 16Th 2008 Christopher Logan
The attacks on non-Muslims in non-Islamic countries continue to rise. Just a few days ago a Catholic girl was killed in the UK for dating a Muslim. Recent attacks in the US include the Washington attack on a man because he is gay, the Philadelphia subway hammer attack, the attacks at the
hospital in Minneapolis, and the Israeli man attacked by Arabs in NY. The latest attack is on Jewish students watching a concert at a pro-Israel event at Berkeley College. The Jewish students were assaulted, called dogs and threatened with death by up to 20 Arabic students. At then end of it all the Muslims do what they usually do, they played the victim card. One of fights was broken up by a Senator at the school. For this the Muslims are filing a petition to get him removed from the college office.
Arab Students at UC Berkeley Disrupt Israel Event, Attack Jews
by David Shamma
Arab students disrupted a pro-Israel event at the campus of the University of California at Berkeley Thursday night, unfurling a large Palestinian flag in front of a crowd of hundreds of supporters of Israel who were enjoying a pro-Israel hip-hop concert. The event was sponsored by the Zionist Freedom Alliance student group.
The Arab students unfurled the large flag on a balcony above the outdoor site where the concert was taking place, inciting a provocation right in front of the concert-goers, who were enjoying the event as part of the campus' Israel Liberation Week. Several Jewish concertgoers went into the building to ask the Arabs to remove the flag – but were viciously attacked, with one male concert goer knocked down from a blow on the back of his head, witnesses said.
College alumnus Gabe Weiner, who was helping run the concert, was assaulted by the leader of the anti-Israel group, Husam Zakharia, who also attacked one of the performers, Yehuda De Sa. The fight was finally broken up by John Moghtader, a senator in the UC Berkelely student organization. Police were called in and arrested Zakharia along with others from his group, charging them with battery. Witnesses said that the Arab students shouted anti-Semitic curses and epithets throughout the incident, calling the Jews “Nazis” and “dogs,” and threatening to kill them. According to one witness, as many as 20 anti-Israel students participated in the attacks.
In a statement, the Zionist Freedom Alliance said “we call on state officials, the President of the University of California, the Chancellor, the Dean of Students, faculty, and the student body to take a unified stand against the continued harassment of Jewish and pro-Israel students on this campus, particularly by members of Students for Justice in Palestine,” the anti-Israel group whose leaders began the incitement and attacked the concertgoers.
Pro-Israel students at UC Berkeley have long complained of the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic harassment they have been subject to. Tikvah, a Jewish student group at the college, displayed on its web site numerous examples of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic graffiti, with anti-Israel elements defacing property with their screed. Jewish students complained that the only media coverage given to the event, in the Berkeley campus newspaper, was one sided. “Funny how the battery citation against Husam of SJP isn't even mentioned [in the article], and the comment which purports to be from an objective bystander is actually from one of the top people in Students for Justice in Palestine,” commented Ariel, one of the concertgoers.
Meanwhile, the anti-Israel group is planning to file a petition to remove from office Moghtader, who tried to break up the fight.
