Islamic-Leftist Group think problem.

Reader comment on item: The Rot in Our [Canadian] Universities
in response to reader comment: Lack of academic rigour, bleeding ground for bigotry

Submitted by DaveP (United Kingdom), Aug 1, 2016 at 05:35

Most universities in the West, particularly in the English speaking world, have a large number of Muslim students. Their views on Israel are, how should I put it, not charitable. These students join associations that reflect their outlook - MSA type. The result is that this large Muslim student body, allied with a vengeful Left in the student body and academics in "soft subject studies", vent their hatred of Israel in a very aggressive, and violent manner. It is difficult for a student who supports Israel to be heard, when he /she is being shouted at all from every corner, and with menaces. That minority student is also keenly aware, that the lefty-Islamic body is prone to violence of a very high degree.

This body is so confident that its views are not just the norm but acceptable, that they can voice the extermination of Israel quite openly. The incident of a student questioning David Horowitz, comes to mind.
