Houston Protestors Interrupt Speech by David Horowitz

Students for Genocide? "U. Houston Was Recently Named to List of "Top Ten Worst Schools that Support Terrorists,"

About 100 angry student protestors supporting the Hamas-funded and Hamas-guided campus organization Students for Justice in Palestine staged a loud and disruptive walkout of David Horowitz's November 2nd speech at the University of Houston. Horowitz is the founder of the California-based David Horowitz Freedom Center and his speech, which was sponsored by the Young America's Foundation, focused on "The Terror Network on American Campuses."

The protestors carried Palestinian flags and a sign stating "Black Lives Matter." During the walkout, which took several minutes, they attempted to shout down Horowitz, making it impossible to hear his words. The protestors chanted, "David, we reject your presence on our campus" and "Zionists off our campus, Islamphobes: off our campus." A video of the protestors attempting to derail Horowitz's speech is available here:

The David Horowitz Freedom Center recently named the University of Houston to its new report on the "Top Ten Worst Schools that Support Terrorists." Coinciding with the release, the Freedom Center placed posters on the Houston campus exposing the links between Students for Justice in Palestine and the terrorist organization Hamas, whose stated goal is the destruction of the Jewish state and the annihilation of its Jews.

The University of Houston hosted the Students for Justice in Palestine National Conferenceon October 27-29, 2017, an event that has become notorious for its secrecy and for anti-Semitic speakers who support anti-Israel terrorism.

As was revealed in recent congressional testimony, Students for Justice in Palestine is a campus front for Hamas terrorists. SJP's propaganda activities are orchestrated and funded by a Hamas front group, American Muslims for Palestine, whose chairman is Hatem Bazian, is a founder of Students for Justice in Palestine, and whose principals are former officers of the Holy Land Foundation and other Islamic "charities" previously convicted of funneling money to Hamas.

Hamas is a State Department-designated terrorist organization whose explicit goals, as stated in its charter, are the destruction of the Jewish state, and the extermination of its Jews.

"Students for Justice in Palestine together with other student organizations such as the Muslim Students Association, and Jewish Voice for Peace have formed a coalition to spread Hamas propaganda," explained Freedom Center founder David Horowitz. "This propaganda effort was designed to destroy the Jewish state, annihilate the Jewish people, and fan the flames of hatred for America as Israel's 'protector.'

Their mission-aided by funding and organizational support from Hamas-is to whitewash actual terrorist attacks and promote the genocidal lies of terrorist organizations in order to weaken the Jewish state, deny it legitimacy, and ultimately destroy it."

"American universities like the University of Houston provide cover and financial support for these terrorist agents, allowing them to provide propaganda that advances Hamas's genocidal agendas," Horowitz continued. "It is disgraceful that President Khator and the University of Houston should provide cover and financial support for these terrorist agents, allowing them to spread propaganda lies that advance Hamas's genocidal agendas."

The Freedom Center posters placed on Houston's campus contained the hashtag #StopUniversitySupportforTerrorists. They were torn down by university authorities who have turned their backs on the First Amendment and the very idea of free speech.

The David Horowitz Freedom Center, founded in 1988, is a not-for-profit organization located in Sherman Oaks, California. The Center's mission is to defend free societies like America and Israel, which are under attack by totalitarians both religious and secular, domestic and foreign.

Professors Not Happy That Jordan Peterson Wants To Warn Students About ‘Radical Left’ Classes

Professor Jordan Peterson, the University of Toronto instructor who won’t use “gender neutral” pronouns, says students should know what they’re getting into when taking courses from hard-core leftist faculty. That’s not sitting well with some of Peterson’s colleagues who say identifying their politics amounts to harassment.

Peterson told the Toronto Star on Friday that he has discussed the idea of creating an “information website” that would forewarn students that a course they’ve selected has an ideological axe to grind with “radical left social justice-oriented courses.”

“I’m not happy with the fact that a huge chunk of the humanities and the social sciences have turned into an indoctrination cult. So I thought, well, the students need to be informed. Because they don’t have the information necessary to make an informed choice, and this would help them make an informed choice,” Peterson told the Star.

The professor says he’s surprised that there would be objections raised now when he hasn’t even discussed the website for over three months. What Peterson envisioned at that time was a reference of “courses and professors and disciplines that should be avoided” for students not interested in left-wing social justice teaching.

But that isn’t sitting well with the U of T facility. Faculty association president Cynthia Messenger issued a statement on Friday that explained how her group “has taken the unprecedented step of asking that the entire executive meet with the provost’s office to express our deep concern about this threat to our members and to the academic mission of the university.”

Peterson was unfazed by the “unprecedented” action, telling the Star that if “what the faculty association did today was an attempt to intimidate me into not doing it, you can be bloody sure that they’ve failed completely.”

The free speech advocate dismissed the statement as another example of university groups “bowing to pressure from a radical minority.”

Peterson asked where the “threat” is to anyone. “It isn’t obvious to me, at least, that providing students with more information about the courses that they’re going to take and their philosophical underpinnings actually constitutes a reprehensible move.”


Professor draws ire for saying students will have to work hard and avoid drinking

UK’s Cambridge University physical sciences professor came under fire this week from mental health campaigners and students after he suggested undergraduates will have to work hard and abstain from drinking to pass the course.

Eugene Terentjev draw the fury of students and mental health activists after sending out an email last week to first-year natural sciences undergraduates at Cambridge, telling them the course will be difficult and thus they should refrain from drinking and other social activities if they wish to succeed, according to an email leaked to student-run publication Varsity.

“Physical sciences is a VERY hard subject, which will require ALL of your attention and your FULL brain capacity (and for a large fraction of you, even that will not be quite enough),” Terentjev wrote to the students.

“You can ONLY do well (ie achieve your potential, which rightly or wrongly several people here assumed you have) if you are completely focused, and learn to enjoy the course. People who just TAKE the course, but enjoy their social life, can easily survive in many subjects — but not in this one.”

He added: “Remember that you are NOT at any other uni, where students do drink a lot and do have what they regard as a ‘good time’ — and you are NOT on a course, as some Cambridge courses sadly are, where such a behaviour pattern is possible or acceptable.”

The professor’s comments caused an uproar among activists and students, who called his email “extremely damaging” and neither “appropriate nor acceptable”, with one other university vice-chancellor accusing Terentjev of “frightening impressionable undergraduates”, the London Times reported.

A mental health campaign at the university, Student Minds Cambridge, said the message sent by the professor “could be extremely damaging to the mental well-being of the students concerned, and potentially others as well,” the Times reported.

Anthony Seldon, vice-chancellor of Buckingham University, said the professor message scaremongers the students rather than helping them to learn to live a balanced lifestyle. “Frightening impressionable undergraduates into believing that work alone is all-important is irresponsible, unkind and wrong-headed,” he told the newspaper.

The university’s student union welfare officer, Micha Frazer-Carroll, also criticized the content of the email, claiming it criticized “the very premise of having a social life, or any sort of life, outside of study.”

“The university believes that all first-year students in all disciplines, having undergone the thorough admissions process that Cambridge requires, have the capacity to succeed academically,” a spokesperson for the University told the Times.
