Another example of the common tactic of labeling any criticism of radical and terrorist Islam as “racist.”
At Stanford University, “A group of students began circulating an e-mail petition yesterday asking for the recall of Daily Editor in Chief Ramin Setoodeh, after The Daily decided to continue running a series of controversial advertisements from a pro-Israeli group.
“The ads, which have run in many college newspapers nationwide, have attracted campus attention over the past two weeks for claims some students say are anti-Palestinian. One ad depicts Israelis lighting candles in remembrance of Sept. 11 victims, under the words, ‘On September 11, 2001, Israelis mourned in Tel-Aviv.’ Next to it is a photo showing Palestinian men and children cheering, beneath the text, ‘On September 11, 2001, Palestinians celebrated in Lebanon.'” . . .
“‘The advertisement suggests that all Palestinians are inhumane and they revel in the shedding of innocent blood,’ wrote the group, called the Coalition for Justice, in a letter that members of the Stanford community signed.”
No one is suggesting that all Palestinians think one way about anything. But people should be aware that overwhelming majorities of Palestinians are supporting suicide attacks against innocent people.
When will it begin “” the massive effort by the Palestinian Authority to convince these people that attacking civilians is wrong, that it damages their cause, and that all people who value human dignity and rights should repudiate such attacks? When will American Muslim groups start calling for such an effort?
Instead, we get the attempts to enforce the silent subservience of dhimmitude on those who dare to speak out against such horrors.
