David Horowitz Freedom Center has launched the “Jew Hatred on Campus” campaign which produced a list of the “Top Ten” offenders guilty of allowing harassment against Jewish students. The top ten universities played host to numerous incidents of anti-Jewish actions, such as Israeli Apartheid Weeks, interrupting university activities by staging mock “checkpoints” on campus, campus speakers that call for the destruction of the Jewish state, as well as verbal and/or physical harassment and violence against Jewish and pro-Israel students.


Jew Hatred on Campus founder David Horowitz stated, “These anti-Semitic incidents occur on university property, often with the support of university funds, despite the fact that such behavior is explicitly forbidden under campus codes of conduct. We made the decision to form ‘Jew Hatred on Campus’ to expose anti-Semitic student groups who support or are associated with known terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah, and which call for the destruction of the Jewish State. These activities against Jewish and pro-Israel students would not be tolerated by university administrators if they were committed against students from any other ethnic group. But because Jews are the target, they have been largely ignored. It is an obligation of university administrators to recognize and condemn acts of anti-Semitism by campus hate groups and to withdraw campus privileges and university support from them.”


Now, without further delay, here are the top ten listings of those colleges and universities found to have the highest antagonism and biases anti-Israel, anti-Zionism and ordinary anti-Semitism which led to a threat based attitude towards Jewish and pro-Israel students endangering the safety of such students. “Jew Hatred on Campus” top ten list reveals some very noticeable names as well as some surprises and also some well-respected educational institutions which permitted and even enabled and abated such animosities leaving a very poisonous atmosphere which stifled and had serious negative impacts according to extensive surveys and various data collection techniques revealed:

1) Columbia University
2) Cornell University
3) George Mason University
4) Loyola University Chicago
5) Portland State University
6) San Diego State University
7) San Francisco State University
8) Temple University
9) University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)
10) Vassar College


These increases over the last few years have caused some Jewish students to drop from their first choice college or university due to the negative and even hostile environment which made them feel threatened and uncomfortable on campus. As David Horowitz stated, these actions of hatred often occurred “with the support of university funds, despite the fact that such behavior is explicitly forbidden under campus codes of conduct.” Somewhat deeper in his short fact-filled statement he was quoted stating, “These activities against Jewish and pro-Israel students would not be tolerated by university administrators if they were committed against students from any other ethnic group. But because Jews are the target, they have been largely ignored.” Where many have claimed that the reemergence of anti-Semitism in both its traditional form and its closely related new anti-Semitism disguised as anti-Zionism or anti-Israel as denying only the Jewish Peoples not to have the same rights to self-government is definitely another face of the same monster simply hiding behind righteousness when calm discourse breaks down and the full extent of rage becomes revealed and easily identifiable as the pure hatred of the Jewish Peoples. This is an unfortunate hatred for one to face, especially when so young and often unlikely to have sufficient knowledge to defend themselves from the prepared sheet of memorized items with which to launch their diatribe of accusations. Despite reports which make it appear that this is a modern problem which had lain dormant for half a century or longer in much of the world after the extent and the horrors of the Holocaust had been revealed, I had the misfortune being a blonde haired blue eyed Jew which looks gentile to the point that nearly anybody else compared to me would win the look Jewish contest which allowed for many to confide their dislike and even raw hatreds towards Jews. Had anti-Semitism lie dormant for decades, mostly but far from completely as there has been that constant tinge that refused to die which was exemplified in the Chicago suburb of Skokie when the National Socialist Party of America (derived from the American Nazi Party) won its court battle to parade through the heavily Jewish section of town and immediately in front of a Holocaust survivor’s home. Despite winning their court battle, in the end they marched in Chicago instead. Still this was a victory for hate speech, a victory for free speech, and horrifying for one Holocaust survivor. The entire series of events was made into a feature length movie titled “Skokie” and starring Danny Kaye, John Rubinstein, Carl Reiner, Kim Hunter, Eli Wallach and Brian Dennehy.


The rapid increase in anti-Semitic hatreds once again and the fact that it appears to be growing fastest on the college and university campuses is distressing in so many ways. Anti-Semitism has begun to spread onto the campus of Brandeis University and City University of New York (CUNY), which are two schools which have a Jewish history spread back to their founding with Brandeis, which was named for the late Louis D. Brandeis, the first Jewish Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, even having Zionism written into its founding mission statement. It was once held that simply looking at our university campuses, you get a glimpse into the future as the students there are the leaders of tomorrow. If that statement is true, then our future as a tolerant, multicultural and intelligent people is doomed. The political correctness found on many college and university campuses is anything but acceptive and often is exclusively dogmatic and selectively defined as to what is politically correct by binding to far leftist ideals and slogans such as group-think to define their efforts. The acceptable ideas on most campuses appears to be a message in a bottle where holding any other view is defined as an abomination. Whether your ideas will be accepted at your university depends on numerous functions and ideas, all of which are just featured prominently on your application.


On no subjects is this more evident than the Middle East with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement and Muslim Brotherhood sponsored groups. Be it because the Muslim world, and particularly the Arab Muslim world, donates billions of dollars to build entire buildings and buy other necessities for universities in exchange for control over, or even the establishing of, Departments of Middle East Studies and the chair that goes along with that honor; by literally bribing to gain these positions these departments become centers which spread the ideology of Islam while concurrently defaming Israel positing that Israel is a stolen and illegal entity and that the Jews have no actual claim to anything in the Middle East and that the ancient Hebrews became today’s Arab Muslims or all died out and that the Jews are all interlopers who actually trace their lineage back to a King of the Khazars in the area of Turkey today who had his people adopt Judaism in the eighth century, about the same time as Mohammad established Islam, a very convenient coincidence. Genetic testing has proven that both Ashkenazi and Sephardim Jews have Middle East ancestry. This theory also does not explain why the Sephardim Jews who make up approximately half of the Israeli Jewish population are not entitled to their ancient homelands even if the Ashkenazi might have a questionable claim. Almost all the claims against European Jews do nothing to discount the claim of the Jews, many who were forced from their homes and forced to sacrifice almost all their belongings when their Muslim national leaders forced them out by threat of pogrom or even laws passed forcing them out have no claims to the lands of Israel. Still, this is the subject line taught across the United States and Europe in many universities.


Concurrently to these teachings you have the establishing of Muslim and Palestinian groups which have in turn established a series of activities with the singular aim of disestablishing the legality of Israel or at least causing students to question and eventually reject the claims of the Jewish People to their homelands. This is established with a combination of very well practiced and advanced campaigns combined on playing on historically established anti-Semitic tropes, slogans and defamations. They play on themes that the Jews have been chased from every nation as they destroy any nation from within that harbors them. Somehow they are unable to explain why the United States has succeeded despite having the second largest population by size in the world only recently exceeded by the numbers of Jews living in Israel. This last leg of the demonization of the Israel primarily and the Jewish People secondarily completes the efforts to conspire against Israel and the Jews leading to the problems documented by David Horowitz’s “Jew Hatred on Campus” research group and their top ten colleges and universities offenders guilty of allowing harassment against Jewish students. It would be a great hope that this listing might shame some college and university leadership to take steps to remedy this problem but the continuous flow of mostly Saudi Arabian and the other Gulf oil states monies into these universities and colleges that they will remain forever bought as long as oil remains as lucrative as it has proven in our world. The sole path to ending this horrific conspiracy would be for the students themselves to reject this propaganda, but that is something probably beyond hope as they too face the moneyed campaign demonizing Israel and the Jews and for some reason anti-Semitism seems to have its own allure and has throughout the last four-thousand years of human history. It really is a sad but true tale that tells us a lot about the human situation that mankind has never been capable of shaking off this stain on humanity. It is not for lack of knowledge as they know of this evil’s existence, so it must be due to a level of warmth and satisfaction derived by this hatred which assists in fueling its red hot slavery to the concept of the daemon Jew while ignoring the Biblical promises granting the Jewish People the Promised Lands into perpetuity .

The Gathering Storm Clouds Over Israel

Now that the initial panic-driven pressure of the opening ceremonies of the United Nations with the Palestinian drive to circumvent negotiations with Israel by demanding the United Nations grant them a Palestinian State and grant an all-encompassing package satisfying every one of their demands; the repeated usual rants from Iranian President Ahmadinejad dismissing the Holocaust, denying the rights of Israel to exist as the Jewish State, and decrying the numerous crimes he accuses the United States, Israel and the West of committing against humanity; the steadily escalating accusatorial rhetoric from Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan spelling out presumed illegal acts by Israel against the IHH ship Mavi Marmara from the flotilla; and the Durban III Conference to celebrate and restate every anti-Israel, anti-Zionist, and anti-Semitic blood libel that were the theme that hijacked the original conference ten years ago are history; now Israel, and those who support Israel, need to sift through the propaganda and inflammatory accusations and dispel them with truth and plan for the ramifications which may materialize from all of the threats made at the United Nations and the weeks leading up to the opening ceremonies in New York. All of these were fully expected and provided no surprises even including the rounds of applause and approval for every anti-American and anti-Israel speech while giving scant, if any, approval for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech where he recounted Jewish history and the Jewish people’s ties to the Promised Lands including all of Israel and Jerusalem. So, with this recent reminder of where the lines are drawn and who those are willing to stand with Israel and the seeming multitudes that stand against Israel, exactly what should be expected in the near future and beyond.

The most immediate of threats comes from the Palestinians, both in Gaza and in Judea and Samaria (West Bank). Mahmoud Abbas was received as a conquering hero in Ramallah where he called for the start of the “Palestinian Spring” and stressed the need for the protests and other actions to be nonviolent. For those familiar with the coded message when the Palestinian Authority or other Palestinian leaders call for nonviolent demonstrations, you already know the inevitable results in violent disruptions and attacks against Jews. We have already seen an increase in rock attacks on motorists in the past week with one such attack resulting in the death of 24-year-old Asher Palmer and his infant son Yehonatan when a large rock was thrown through the windshield hitting Asher in the face causing loss of control and the vehicle to crash off the road. There have also been reports from the IDF of the Palestinian Authority paying Arab Palestinians to riot which resulted with the riots in Judea and Samaria last week being larger in number and more violent than usual, as reported by Arutz Sheva. This violence is in addition to the continuing rocket and mortar attacks being launched on civilian targets in areas of southern Israel which more area has fallen within the increased range and sizes of Hamas weapons capabilities.

The escalating posturing by Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan insisting for measures to be taken against Israel in retaliation for the Mavi Marmara confrontation during the IHH Flotilla attempt to break the recognized and legal Israeli blockade of Gaza, despite the United Nations Palmer Report recognition of the Israeli right to impose a blockade on Hamas in Gaza, Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan has been demanding an Israeli formal apology and for reparations to the families of the recalcitrant IHH terrorists who died as a result of the attack and response from IDF commandoes when they boarded the vessel to divert them to an Israeli port. Turkey has escalated the heated rhetoric by deploying warships in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea announcing intentions to disrupt Israeli shipping. Turkey has also threatened to escort the next challenge to the Gaza blockade with these same naval ships and even to disrupt drilling operations in the Mediterranean between Crete and Israel, possibly even destroying the drilling equipment. Erdogan’s posturing has reached a point where it now borders on declaration of hostile intent and should he continue to escalate the situation, it may be near impossible for Turkey to climb down before the situation goes from confrontational threatening to actual threat being put into actions and the situation escalating out of control. Erdogan was sounding like a leader seeking support for a war against Israel on his recent trip to Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya.

Most people and experts have expressed the opinion that Syria has too many problems with their current uprising to be of any great threat as far as Israel is concerned. I beg to differ on this point. Syrian President Bashir Assad has regularly blamed terrorists who are backed by Israel or directly accused Israel of arming those who are opposing his continued rule in Syria. One of the threats that must be considered is that of Assad forcing a border confrontation with Israel even larger than the one that occurred in conjunction with the Palestinian Naqba Day protests. It was established that Assad had paid people to protest by crossing the Israeli border and even promised additional reimbursement for the families of anyone who was injured or killed in an attempt to force a confrontation simply for propaganda purposes where any violence could be photographed and released to an eager world media. The confrontation did not occur and the instigation was ended without violence. There exists the possibility of an even larger border confrontation being forced to such a magnitude where violence is virtually guaranteed should those sent to cross into Israel refuse demands to return to their side of the border and instead attempt to continue into Israel past the border troops. This could then be used by Assad as a means to utilize maximum force to end the protests by invoking the need to battle Israel in order to protect Syrians from the murderous Jews. I realize this is not likely, but I also would not totally rule this out, especially if Assad is backed by Iran and Hezballah in a regional war with Israel. This could be done in concert with Egypt and Turkey in addition to Syria’s normal allies.

The situations with Lebanon and Egypt are quite similar and likely to become nearly identical in the near future. With Hezballah now also officially the governing party of Lebanon and the high likelihood for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party to win outright the Egyptian elections, or at least win the majority of the necessary seats to command a ruling coalition, that Egypt and Lebanon would find themselves allied with Iran in spirit if not in fact. Add to the mix Erdogan and the Turkish threat and Assad in need of a distraction to retain his hold on power with Iran’s desire to keep close ties with Syria and Hezballah needing Syria as a convenient arms storage facility and arms pipeline, and that makes for a very serious mix. Now add Hamas and the possibility of a Palestinian unilateral declaration of statehood and what comes next is anybody’s nightmare. The Middle East is as close as it has been in nearly a quarter of a century to initiating another war to drive the Jews into the Sea. This is further made possible as the American presence in the Middle East becomes less pronounced once they pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan within the next year. Add the American Presidential election cycle coming into play and it makes for a perfect stage for things to go wrong, very wrong. Many of Israel’s enemies see the Administration of President Obama as weak and unlikely to come to Israel’s aid, or to provide such aid with great reluctance and thus delaying the probably necessary aid making Israel more vulnerable than she has been since President Carter. Add to this the fact that Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Turkey have nearly equal weapons systems as does Israel with them all having F-15 and F-16 Jet Fighters, Abrams Tanks against Israeli Merkava tanks, small arms, anti-tank armaments, Apache Attack Helicopters, or similar arms and the Arab leaders may see the present as the best chance they have had ever. Add to that if Turkey can make it appear as they have a legitimate reason for a war with Israel, what do the NATO allies do as they are treaty bound to assist Turkey in all manners requested, which minimally would be to leave Israel fending for herself. That is one view of the picture, one any sane person would pretend not to see as the probability, or at least possibility, of great evil is on the horizon.

Turkey’s Erdogan Virtually Declares War on Israel

During his joint news conference with the Tunisian Interim Prime Minister Beji Caid el Sebs, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated, “Israel will not be able to move in the eastern Mediterranean as it wishes. It will see our determination in this regard,” while referring to his country’s ability to have frigates and assault vessels in the eastern Mediterranean “at any time” to ensure freedom of movement. This was a follow-up to the deployment of three Turkish warships to the eastern end of the Mediterranean with the stated mission to escort a potential flotilla to Gaza in order to break the Israeli internationally recognized blockade of the Gaza Strip. This came immediately after the United Nations released the Palmer Report which, though expressing Israel had possibly used more than necessary force (there’s a new claim against Israel that was so unexpected), declared the Israeli blockade, deployed to impede the importation of weaponry and other supplies of war into Gaza be sea, to be perfectly legal and as such allowed to take legitimate actions to enforce inspection of all cargo entering Gaza through Israel or by sea. Should any entity or country desire to export armaments, explosives or other items not allowed to pass the Israeli blockade, they are free to use the Egyptian border at the Ramallah crossing into Gaza which Egypt has opened allowing everything to enter into Gaza.

This latest threat comes after a week of rapid deterioration of relations that have been steadily unraveling since Prime Minister Erdogan took office in 2003. The downturn of relations accelerated greatly since last year’s confrontation on the Mavi Marmara during the Turkish Flotilla to break the blockade. Prime Minister Erdogan has been demanding an apology by Israel setting a deadline for before the release of the Palmer Report. Upon the release of the report, Erdogan’s official position was that the report was tainted and influenced by anti-Islamic interests or pro-Zionist interests making the Palmer Report inconsequential. Israel has offered and expressed regret that force was necessitated which caused casualties including nine dead and offered to make some restitution but refused to offer the formal apology demanded by Turkey’s Erdogan. This led to Turkey reducing their relations with Israel to the lowest level just short of fully breaking off relations. Erdogan insisted that the Israeli Ambassador return to Israel as well as that one level below Ambassador leaving only the minimalist contingent downgrading Israel’s Embassy to consular level. The Turkish Ambassador was also recalled by Turkey from Israel and all military trade and agreements have been cancelled but business in other fields have been allowed to continue though there is some strain even on those levels. This has all come down to the positioning of three Turkish warships off the Israeli coast remaining in international waters and Prime Minister Erdogan has threatened to order the Turkish Navy to provide full military escort to any ships desiring to make port in Gaza. Such a move would be an actual act of war and the expression of intent to commit such an act is tantamount to a declaration of hostilities.

Thus far, Israel has not responded to the Turkish brinkmanship, at least not officially. Israel still intends to continue to enforce their blockade even if this would lead to a direct confrontation between the Israeli naval forces and those of Turkey, should they enter Israeli waters without permission. This is a very serious and dangerous standoff which does not bode for a peaceful ending. In the meantime, Turkey Prime Minister Erdogan is touring the countries which have changed leadership during the “Arab Spring” (referred to here at BTC as the “Arab Winter”) making accusations and denunciations of Israel, pledging support for whatever new regimes come to power and calling for them to join Turkey in the efforts to restrict Israel. Let us all hope that Turkey is purely posturing and Erdogan is not intending to provoke a war with Israel, especially if his aim is to drag all of the Middle East and North Africa into open warfare against Israel. It might be time for NATO to call for calm and use any influence they may have on Turkey, a member of the NATO alliance, to stand down from the threatening stance and mediate a solution that ends the thus-far one sided escalating of rhetoric before it becomes provocative actions that can easily get out of hand and pass the point of no return. Hopefully, nobody is actually attempting to cause a shooting war and all this remains portentous bluster and does not become explosive discharge.
