More on the sorry state of American campuses, from Arnold Steinberg in FrontPage:
At the University of California campus at Irvine (in Orange County), Jewish students pose these two questions. That’s because of events sponsored by the Muslim Student Union (MSU) and the Society of Arab Students (SAS) related to their fourth annual “Zionism Awareness Week.” …
At UC-Irvine, the MSU and SAS members wore green armbands to support Hamas. The leaders of Jewish campus organizations protested in vain to the politically correct administration, which is (or pretends to be) unfamiliar with Hamas’ charter. Indeed, an MSU member sent an e-mail to the MSU list concerning whether graduating students should wear sashes which say “shahada” (the Arabic word for suicide bomber).
Actually it’s the Arabic word for “martyrdom,” but since that is what suicide bombers think they are attaining, this may be a distinction without a difference.
