A Wake Up Call in Response to Student Extremists

Reader comment on item: Extremists on Campus

Dr.Pipes,

I attended a rally outside the Israeli Consulate in San Francisco in opposition to some left-wing radical Jews who purported to support Israel but believe she should not defend herself in response to Palestinian terrorism...
It was astounding!! KCBS interviewed me and took everything I said out of context!

The point of my letter is to tell you of the fanatical Islamic students from UC Berkeley who showed up. These Arab students stood behind me and held up pro Nazi signs. They tried to make it appear that they were with me.

Those of us supporting Israel made up a small group, and we told the police that they were not with us. I am happy to say that the SFPD stood by us and made these radicals gather with the anti-Israel side.

The experience was a strange wake-up call for me.

Continue your excellent work! You did a great job exposing that Muslim lady on FOX news for what she was -- an anti-semite. Thanks!
Submitting....
