Scary video from UCSD

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

A couple of friends have sent me this video from UC San Diego linked there at Commentary’s blog of a confrontation between David Horowitz, the Israel lobbyist, and a purported member of the Muslim Students Association who seems to come out for hunting down Jews. I find it scary and feel that it exposes real intolerance inside the pro-Palestinian movement. It’s a little unclear, because the woman doesn’t get to expand a short statement, and Horowitz, for whom I hold no brief (and who gets Islamophobic in the exchange), controls the exchange; but it’s still ugly. The explanation that she’s a plant is unconvincing to me. I saw hatred toward Israel/Jews in Gaza. I understand where it came from; in many situations I observed, I could not blame them. But in the U.S., at a state school? This is not the way.
