Betty and Johnny talk.
Betty: Republicans are racists, sexist, homophobic, gun-toting, religious fanatic.
Johnny: but you support the Moslems who are racists, sexist, homophobic, gun-toting, religious fanatic.
Betty: Hmmmm; that is their [Moslems] culture. You have no right to judge them.
The above is the classic approach the West has adopted toward Islam and that is detrimental.
Tammi Rossman-Benjamin is a Hebrew lecturer at UC Santa Cruz. On June 20, 2012 she addressed a crowd, at an off-campus event, at Temple Ahavath Torah in which she accused two Muslim students associations – Muslim Students Association (MSA) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) – of having connections to Hamas and Hezbollah. The brave and honest lecturer was right but still came under fire for her finger pointing remarks:
UCSC Lecturer Tammi Benjamin Accuses Students for Justice in Palestine and the Muslim Students Association of anti-Semitism and having connections to terrorist organizations.
Benjamin explained that students from the Muslim Students Association and Students for Justice in Palestine, often are foreign students, arrive at American universities from Muslim countries where they are “fed a diet of anti-Semitism.” She accuses these student groups of having strong ties to the terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah, as well as the Muslim Brotherhood, and adds that they take part in international campaigns to demonize and delegitimize the state of Israel.
The MSA and SJP students have forcefully promoted their vile messages on campuses and in most cases there has been little resistance, or none, to their activities.
For over a decade the MSA and SJP have been distributing their materials, which is an advanced anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian, resulting in their discourse really dominating the campus square, negatively, affecting and fogging the perceptions of literally hundreds of thousands of California University students.
Rossman-Benjamin co-founded the Amcha Initiative, an organization that aims to protect the safety and well-being of Jewish college and university students and to fight against anti-Jewish and anti-Israel discourse and behavior in classrooms and university-sponsored events.

So the Committee for Justice in Palestine at UCSC acted as democracy allows them to do and issued an online petition urging UCSC President Mark Yudof to condemn Rossman-Benjamin’s “racist and defamatory claims.”
In the letter the group wrote, “the University of California and the Office of the President must take a clear stand against hate speech directed at marginalized communities, and distance himself from extremists like Tammi Benjamin and the Amcha Initiative that work to smear and silence student human rights campaigners.”
Last month, the Associated Students at the University of California (ASUC) at Berkeley jumped in with their two cents and condemned the “Islamophobic hate speech at the University of California.” ASUC also called on UCSC President Yudof to condemn Rossman-Benjamin’s remarks.
Remember Betty and Johnny above?
We must stop the Islamic intellectual terrorism in our schools… [Also we must stop the not so intellectual Left, but still terrorizing the minds of our children. Let the kids THOUGHTS not be indoctrinated!]
Students for Justice in Palestine and the Muslim Students Association are simply anti-Semites who incite against Israel; that is what they are, no need to try hide behind the veil of innocence and political correctness.
A reminder of what we are up against – David Horowitz at UCSD 5/10/2010
If they acted according to our American values, not Islamofascist and Leftist, the universities should have the courage to open the Pandora box of truth and stop hiding behind the dollars they receive from these inciting pests and their oil rich countries.
The students from the Arab-Islamofascist countries have imported into our land values that are foreign to us, that are destroying our society. Where we are taught to believe in Ecumenism, these foreigners are destroying these values by teaching our kids evil.
Though the ramifications are now inexplicable, they will not be for too long.
