“A list of demands posted on Monday to the SDSU Muslim Students Association Facebook page includes: zero tolerance for ‘Islamophobic’ speech.” In other words, they want the university to set them up as arbiters of what is acceptable speech, so that they can stifle any criticism of Islam and jihad terror, in accord with Sharia blasphemy laws.
According to Discover the Networks, “The Muslim Students Association of the United States and Canada, or MSA (also known as MSA National), was established mainly by members of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) in January 1963 at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Nyack College theologian Larry A. Poston writes that “many of the founding members of this agency [MSA] were members of, or had connections to,” the Muslim Brotherhood or Jamaat-i-Islami. The three most significant founders of MSA were Hisham al Talib, Jamal Barzinji, and Ahmed Totanji, and all of whom were MB leaders of Iraqi descent. Other noteworthy individuals who served as early co-founders of MSA were Mahboob Khan and Malika Khan.”

The report indicated that she was not injured in the altercation.
The Muslim Students Association called for students to come forward with information, while urging students to “create a more inclusive campus climate by promoting tolerance and acceptance between different cultures and religions.”
Ironically, SDSU has hosted anti-Israel events in the recent past, as has the Muslim Students Association, which supports an ongoing campaign for divestment from Israel.
SDSU has also experienced other problems with anti-Israel rhetoric. In 2013, the professor of an Arabic language course at SDSU eliminated the country of Israel on a map. The instructor replaced Israel with “Palestine.” After the pro-Israel group Stand With Us called out the professor and demanded action on the part of the university, SDSU issued a statement calling the map “inaccurate” and “unacceptable.”…
