Jew Hatred Rampant on US College Campuses


(Editor: 2015 was a bad year for anti Jewish behavior on campus. The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement that seeks to force colleges and businesses to punish Israel and also driving personal anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish students. “There is a clear correlation between anti-Israel activism—particularly BDS campaigns—and the anti-Semitic targeting of Jewish students,” Rossman-Benjamin told the Washington Free Beacon. “For instance, acts of anti-Jewish harassment, discrimination, and defamation are higher in schools where BDS activity is high. The connection between BDS and campus anti-Semitism is undeniable.” Much BDS activity is influenced by Palestinian and radical Islamic organizations operating in the United States).


By Adam Kredo Washington Free Beacon

Anti-Semitism on U.S. college campuses spiked in 2015, with 302 incidents against Jewish students recorded at 109 schools in 28 states, according to a new report warning that the rise of anti-Israel organizations is fueling hatred and making many campuses unsafe for Jews.

The array of incidents were recorded at many universities and often included Nazi imagery, slurs calling Jews “evil,” and calls for Jews be murdered, according to a report published by the AMCHA Initiative, an organization that seeks to protect Jewish students.

The organization created an online database that logs in real time reports of new anti-Semitic incidents at colleges across the nation. Several anti-Semitic incidents have been recorded in the first month of 2016.

Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, AMCHA co-founder and director, warned that anti-Semitism on campus is growing as a result of highly aggressive anti-Israel student movements such as the group Students for Justice in Palestine, which has used Nazi imagery in its campaign to demonize Israel.

“There is a clear correlation between anti-Israel activism—particularly BDS campaigns—and the anti-Semitic targeting of Jewish students,” Rossman-Benjamin told the Washington Free Beacon. “For instance, acts of anti-Jewish harassment, discrimination, and defamation are higher in schools where BDS activity is high. The connection between BDS and campus anti-Semitism is undeniable.”

Some of the incidents recorded at universities were violent in nature, according to the report.

At the University of Oregon, for instance, a man yelling anti-Semitic slurs threatened to shoot a Jewish student.

At Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn, New York, an Orthodox Jewish student “was punched in the face and told ‘Leave the school, you Jew,’” according to the report.

Students also used social media networks such as Twitter to threaten Jewish students.

One female student-athlete at Delaware Valley College came under scrutiny for tweeting, “Can I kill all the [expletive deleted] Jews in Lakewood pleeeasse?!?!!”

Nazi-style demonstrations also were held on campuses in 2015.

Thirty members of a group called the Traditionalist Youth Network at Indiana University “marched on campus holding anti-Semitic signs and wearing Nazi memorabilia,” according to the report.

In a similar incident at the University of California at Santa Cruz, members of the Students for Justice in Palestine group—which has been shut down on some campuses for its virulent anti-Semitism—established mock checkpoints around campus and forced Jewish students to “show ID cards.”

At least 15 college campuses—including George Washington University, the University of Maryland, and Tufts University—had incidences of anti-Semitic graffiti, including swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs.

“Jews—the root of all evil” was written on a wall in the Brooklyn College campus library, the report found.


Other incidents across the country include mezuzahs being vandalized, swastikas being scrawled on school buildings, and convicted terrorists being invited to speak on campus.

At Towson University, one vandal repeatedly went across campus writing, “Hitler was right” and “with Jews you lose.”

Similarly, a the University of California at Berkeley, “Zionists should be sent to the gas chamber” was found “etched on school property,” according to the report.

Leila Beckwith, an AMCHA co-founder and professor emeritus at the University of California at Los Angeles, warned that college officials often dismiss discrimination against Jews.

“Anti-Semitism, what many of us thought only a decade or so ago was a sad part of our history, continues to rear its ugly head on campuses from coast to coast,” Beckwith said in a statement. “What those of us that monitor cases on a regular basis know is today’s anti-Semitism not only includes swastikas and historical anti-Jewish slang.”

“Stealth Jihad” Textbook Resurfaces in Brevard, Fl



(Editor: www.thereportcard.org The notorious Islam-biased “Word History” textbook published by Pearson Prentice Hall has resurfaced in Brevard County Schools. Like vampires of legend, “Word History” refuses to die, except that the textbook is real and not a legend. Described in Citizens for National Security’s study “Islam Biased Textbooks in Florida” the textbook contains 3 paragraphs on Judaism, 4 paragraphs in Christianity, and a full 36-page chapter in Islam. The chapter not only praises Islam, but it is chock full of verses from the Koran, but not a sentence from the Bible. Furthermore, while the book references Mohammed as “God’s messenger” it says that “some believed Jesus to be the Messiah.” The section on Islam is pure indoctrination and should not be allowed in any American school. Anyone wishing a copy of Citizens for National Security’s study on Islam Biased Textbooks in Florida, can visit cfns.us and download it).



By Todd Starnes


The Prentice World History textbook being used in Brevard Public Schools includes a 36-page chapter on Islam but no chapters on Christianity or Judaism.

According to a copy obtained by Fox News, The ninth grade textbook declares that Muhammad is the “Messenger of God” and instructs students that jihad is a duty that Muslims must follow.

“Jihad may be interpreted as a holy war to defend Islam and the Muslim community, much like the Crusades to defend Christianity,” the book states.

The textbook published large passages from the Koran, but failed to include any Scripture from the Bible. And while the book  makes declarations about Muhammad being God’s messenger, it does not make declarations about Jesus being God’s son.

“Some believed he was the messiah,” the textbook noted in an entry about Jesus. The book noted that He was later executed, but failed to mention His resurrection.

Brevard Public Schools defended the textbook and said it provided a balanced view of world religions.

“An analysis of one textbook cannot provide a balanced understanding as to what the students in Brevard Public Schools are learning throughout their academic careers,” spokeswoman Michelle Irwin said in a statement.


She said the Prentice Hall World History textbook incorporated a review of the origin of Christianity and Judaism – subjects covered indepth in sixth grade classrooms.

She also pointed out the book was among those approved by the state of Florida and that parents as well as community members were given the opportunity to review the textbook before it was adopted.

The book has been used in the classroom for the past three years without any complaints – until now.

Susan Aspey, a spokeswoman for the book’s publisher, told Fox News the textbook is balanced.

“Pearson and its authors adhere to the highest editorial standards when creating course materials, which undergo a rigorous review process,” she said. “A review of the book shows there is balanced attention given to the beliefs of Islam, Judaism and Christianity.

William Saxton, the chairman of Citizens For National Security, testified before the Brevard, Fla. School Board, warning them that the book rewrites Islamic history and presents a biased and incorrect version of the Muslim faith.

“They promote Islam at the expense of Christianity and Judaism,” Saxton told Fox News. “It blew my mind to see the kind of propaganda, the pro-Islam information that’s in this book – at the expense of Christianity and Judaism.”

Saxton said he believes the inclusion is deliberate and he placed the blame an organization that was once called Council on Islamic Education. The group works with education officials and publishers to produce chapters on Islam for American textbooks.

But today, the Council on Islamic Education is known as the Institute on Religious and Civic Values. It’s founder, Shabbir Mansuri, is listed as an academic reviewer on the textbook used in Brevard County.

In 2001 the OC Weekly newspaper in California interviewed Mansuri about comments former Second Lady Lynne Cheney made lamenting the amount of time schools were spending teaching cultures that were not American. Mansuri took her comments as a personal attack.

“For the past 11 years, Mansuri has waged what he calls a ‘bloodless’ revolution: promoting an increased emphasis on world cultures and faiths – including Islam – inside American junior high and high school campuses,” the newspaper reported.

Saxton said he is highly suspicious of Mansuri’s organization and questioned why they changed their name.

“These people are dedicated to getting this language into the textbooks,” he said, noting their new name is “benign and does not sound “threatening or Islamic. “But the same people are running it.”

Saxton said they are hearing from concerned parents across the country – and the complaints have generally been the same: public school textbooks that favor Islam over other world religions.

“It’s a form of stealth jihad,” he said. “(Jihad) is not just blowing up buildings. It’s more subtle. I began to understand that one of the ways the bad guys are trying to threaten our way of life is through our children. The Islamists want to get to the hearts and minds of our kids.”

Saxton’s all-volunteer organization launched a nationwide study in 2009 to root out what they believed to be Islamic bias in American school textbooks. He said they found as many as 80 textbooks that overtly promoted Islam.

Last year, the Citizens For National Security was able to get a similar book removed from the classroom in Palm Beach County.

“In short, you are using an Islam-biased, flawed textbook that has neither partially nor fully been corrected,” he told Brevard County school leaders.

A spokesman for IRCV told Fox News they would agree to an interview but never returned repeated calls.

In 2009 Mansuri found himself facing similar accusations of promoting and glorifying Islam – accusations he strongly denied in an Orange County Register interview.

“IRCV is recognized within the education community for our expertise in teaching about world religions,” he told the newspaper. “This expertise stands from our long-standing interest in religious liberty, religious pluralism and the practice of faith within a civic social framework.”

He blamed the criticism on “children of 9-11,” who were miseducated, the newspaper reported.

Saxton said the Prentice Hall textbook is riddled with errors. He especially took issue with their definition of jihad. The book called it a personal duty for Muslims and a way to defend their faith.

“Violent Islamic groups have used jihad for centuries,” he said. “The 9-11 attacks were an example of jihad as terrorism, not self-defense. Declarations of jihad have been made for purposes of violence against Christians, Jews, Americans, British and fellow Muslims hundreds of times.”

The textbook also alleges that “Muslims consider Jews and Christians to be ‘People of the Book.’”

Saxton said in practice, Jews and Christians have been subjected historically to violence and murder by Muslims.

“Christians and Jews are permitted very few of the rights and freedoms that the Muslim majority is allowed,” he said.

The textbook said under Islamic law women are spiritually equal, although they may have different roles and rights.

“This content is confusing at best and intellectually dishonest at worst,” he said. In Egypt and other Arab countries, women may not be employed in the private sector because they belong in the home. Women are stoned to death under Sharia law in Iran for adultery.”

School Board member Amy Kneessy told Fox News she had a chance to read the textbook and she was especially troubled by the section about how Muslims treat women.

“I was really disheartened,” she said. “To see such a blatant misportrayal of how women are treated in Muslim countries, I found disconcerting.”

Kneessy said there seems to be a double-standard and found evidence of bias in a number of passages – especially when it came to religious wars.

“When wars were involving Jewish people or Christians, some very hard adjectives were used – like ‘massacre,’” she said. “Whereas when it was a Muslim group, it was ‘occupy’ or a very innocuous term.”

She said the school has an obligation to be fair and balanced when teaching history.

“War is never clean and tidy,” she said. “Wars are bloody. People die and bad things happen. The facts need to be reported fairly from all perspectives.”

Kneessy said she plans on asking the entire school board to reevaluate the textbook.

“I am concerned it is more ammunition that continues to water down what this country was founded on,” she said. “This country was founded with Christian values. God was very much a part of our government. When you take the religious context out of it, then you take away the very heart of what this country was founded

Muslims Demand Jersey City Close Schools, Board Refuses



(Editor: www.thereportcard.org An angry aggressive Muslim crowd demanded that Jersey City Close schools for Muslim Holiday Eid al Adha, even though the school district does not close for Jewish High Holy Days Rosh Hashonah and Yom Kippur. A Muslim woman in attendance made a veiled threat saying: “We’re going to be the majority soon.” There is well-documented evidence that when Muslims become a significant minority as in Dearborn Michigan, France and England, they become increasingly aggressive, often to the point of violence. Earlier immigrant populations made efforts to assimilate, but Muslims are appear to want to live under Sharia law even though it is in conflict with the Constitution).

By Jon Street


The Jersey City Board of Education voted last week not to close schools for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, one of the most important holidays for Muslims.

School board members in New Jersey made their decision Thursday despite appeals from Muslim attendees who showed up to advocate that the board change the school schedule.

At one point, things became so heated that an official urged security to “take charge” of the situation. At least one person was seen on video being escorted from the meeting.


“We feel alienated from the Board of Education, we feel alienated from this system,” Omar Abouelkhair told WNBC-TV.

“We’re going to be the majority soon,” another said.


But board member Gerald Lyons suggested there is a perfectly valid reason for having school on Thursday, telling residents that closing school with just six days’ notice would cause “undue hardship” for 5,000 to 10,000 parents who might not have anywhere else to send their kids.


Lyons also reminded that students can still take the day off as an excused religious absence, meaning they would not face a penalty for doing so. Others noted that the school does not let out for the Jewish holidays Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

The controversy came in the first year that schools in New York City will not have classes Thursday, the result of a decision made by Mayor Bill de Blasio last March, WNBC reported.

Breaking: Yale to Establish Islamic Law School



(Editor: www.therpeortcard.org While all eyes are on the shooting war against Islamic Terror, few are watching the infiltration of American institutions by Islam. A Saudi businessman donated $10 Million to Yale Law School for the study of Islamic Law or Sharia. Now, since America is a Constitutional Republic and since the Constitution is the foundation for American law, why would anyone want to study Islamic Law? Because there are those who want to carve out exceptions to Constitutional law for Muslims. Congressman Keith Ellison (D) Minnesota, a Muslim is a supporter of Sharia law in America. Look for Yale’s Sharia Law Graduates to agitate for supremacy of Sharia over the Constitution for Muslims. From there it is only a short step for America to be under Sharia law at the expense of the Constitution. So why is Yale, established as a Christian Divinity School, starting a Sharia Law School? $10 Million reasons).



By Michael Melia Associated Press

A Saudi businessman has donated $10 million to Yale Law School to establish what school officials hope will become the country’s top center for the study of Islamic law.

Abdallah S. Kamel made the award after meetings with university representatives including Yale President Peter Salovey. Kamel, chief executive of the Dallah Albaraka Group banking and real estate enterprise in Saudi Arabia, has sponsored a lecture series on Islamic law for the last three years.

Yale officials say the Abdallah S. Kamel Center for the Study of Islamic Law and Civilization reflects a growing interest at Yale and other institutions in Islamic law, history and culture.

“The contemporary challenges of Islamic law are broadly relevant to political events throughout the entire Islamic world and those are developments that are watched by a much larger audience of people who in many cases have not much knowledge at all of the history and traditions if Islamic law,” said Professor Anthony Kronman, a co-director of the center who was first introduced to Kamel by a Yale Law graduate who works as an attorney for the Saudi businessman.

For two decades, Harvard Law School has had its own Islamic legal studies program, established with support from the Saudi king.

Abdullahi An-Na’im, who teaches Islamic law at Emory Law School, said he considers the Islamic legal studies program at Harvard a disappointment because few faculty members took an interest and it has been treated as an isolated entity at the law school. He said it remains to be seen how seriously the Yale faculty will take Islamic law as a field of human jurisprudence.

Kronman said Yale aims to have the best program of its kind in the United States, if not the world, and one objective is to ensure the center’s work is integrated into the life of the law school.

Islamic law, or Shariah, carries weight in the legal code of most Muslim countries. Movements to expand its influence, including in areas of the West, have been controversial in part because some interpretations have been used to justify intolerance and harsh punishments.


Kronman said Islamic law is all the more deserving of intellectual attention because many people have views of the subject that are not very well informed.

“It’s the responsibility of universities to teach and instruct and that obligation applies with particular force where an issue or a subject tends to be viewed in an incomplete or inadequate or even caricatured way,” Kronman said. “There the responsibility to teach and enlighten is even stronger.”

The center aims to support research fellowships, a rotation of visiting professors and a tenured professorship in the field of Islamic law.

Tennessee Students Recite: “No God But Allah!”




(Editor: www.thereportcard.org As we remember 9/11, it is also important to understand that America’s war with radical Islam is being waged in the classroom as well as on the battlefield. Credulous school administrators driven by political correctness are using textbooks written or sponsored by the Muslim Brotherhood, are indoctrinating school children about Islam. Apparently the Gospel is unwelcome in public schools, but reciting the Shahada: “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet” is just fine. Remember 9/11 by shutting down Islamic indoctrination in America’s schools).

By Michael Ware

Parents in the Maury County School District in Tennessee are understandably upset after it was learned that students studying Islam in a world history class were required to write out the Five Pillars of Islam, including the Shahada.


The Shahada is the statement made by converts to Islam which says, “Allah is the only God and Muhammad is his prophet.”

The children at Spring Hill Middle School spent three weeks studying Islam.

And before you ask, of course they spent an equal amount of time on other religions including Christianity and Judaism. …

Just kidding.


They sorta skipped over that chapter apparently.

Brandee Porterfield, mother of a seventh-grader, complained to school officials. “It really did bother me that they skipped the whole chapter on the rise of Christianity and they spent three weeks just studying Islam,” she said.

“I spoke with the teacher and the principal,” she added. “They are not going to learn any other religion, doctrines or creeds and they are not going back over this chapter. Even though they discuss Christianity a little bit during the Middle Ages, they are not ever going to have this basis for Judaism or Christianity later.”


Porterfield said the class skipped over the chapter on Christianity because it’s not required by the state’s standards, known as TN Core and based loosely on the national Common Core.


Joy Ellis, another mother to a seventh grader, said, “This is a seventh grade state standard, and will be on the TCAP. I didn’t have a problem with the history of Islam being taught, but to go so far as to make my child write the Shahada, is unacceptable.”


Jan Hanvey, Maury County Public Schools’ middle school supervisor, said that most of the Islam unit focused not on theology but on government, geography, culture and economics.

Of course, anyone who’s studied Islam knows that in Islamic countries, those things are inseparable from the Muslim theology.

Hanvey went on to say that Judaism and Christianity will be discussed at the end of the school term, in the unit about the Age of Discovery.

Skeptics will notice that the Age of Discovery is significantly after the foundings of Judaism and Christianity.

(Although, if the curriculum were honest, it could be pointed out that the Age of Discovery really began because Christianized Europe was trying to find a way around murderous Muslims who had taken over Byzantium.)

School officials are planning a meeting with parents later this month.

No doubt the Left will be OK with this example of a violation of the separation of church and state. It’s only Christians getting upset again. They should just be quiet and do as the state tells them.

After all, there is no god but the State. …

End of Free Speech at College



(Editor: www.thereportcard.org First Amendment rights have been under verbal and physical attack for some time. Now, on many campuses, free speech has ceased to exist. Harvard conservative Professor Harvey Mansfield, has been attacked by student who want his research suppressed. Hirsi Ali, who has spoken out against radical Islam, Condoleeza Rice, Charles Murray and other distinguished citizens have been barred from speaking because students and some faculty were offended. Political correctness has morphed into speech suppression and indoctrination. Parents don’t need to spend $50,000 each year so their kids can be dumbed down and turned into willing cogs of the totalitarian state. Formerly great institutions have been turned into fascist propaganda mills. This is not good for the students and not good for America).


By Walter Williams


George Orwell said, “There are some ideas so absurd that only an intellectual could believe them.” If one wants to discover the truth of Orwell’s statement, he need only step upon most college campuses.


Faculty leaders of the University of California consider certain statements racism and feel they should not be used in class. They call it micro-aggression. To them, micro-aggressive racist statements are: “America is the land of opportunity.” That is seen as perpetuating the myth of meritocracy. “There is only one race, the human race.” Such a statement is seen as denying the individual as a racial/cultural being. “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.” That’s “racist” because it gives the impression that “people of color are given extra unfair benefits because of their race.”

These expressions don’t exhaust the list of micro-aggressions. Other seemingly innocuous statements deemed unacceptable are: “Everyone can succeed in this society, if they work hard enough,” “When I look at you, I don’t see color,” or “Affirmative action is racist.” Perhaps worst of all is, “Where are you from or where were you born?” For more of this, see a document released by The College Fix titled “Diversity in the Classroom,” UCLA Diversity and Faculty Development.


This micro-aggression nonsense, called micro-totalitarianism by my colleague Dr. Thomas Sowell (http://tinyurl.com/nxulxc), is nothing less than an attack on free speech. From the Nazis to the Stalinists, tyrants have always started out supporting free speech, and why is easy to understand. Speech is vital for the realization of their goals of command, control and confiscation. Free speech is a basic tool for indoctrination, propagandizing, proselytization. Once the leftists gain control, as they have at many universities, free speech becomes a liability and must be suppressed. This is increasingly the case on university campuses.

Daniel Henninger, deputy editor of The Wall Street Journal’s editorial page, writes about the campus attack on free speech and different ideas in his article titled “Obama Unleashes the Left: How the government created a federal hunting license for the far left.” He says that in the Harvard Crimson, an undergraduate columnist wrote: “Let’s give up on academic freedom in favor of justice. When an academic community observes research promoting or justifying oppression, it should ensure that this research does not continue.” The student was calling for the suppression of the research of conservative Harvard government professor Harvey Mansfield.


Oberlin College proposed that its teachers be aware of politically controversial topics such as “racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, cissexism, ableism, capitalism and other issues of privilege and oppression.” The presumption that students must be protected rather than challenged in a classroom is at once infantilizing and anti-intellectual.

Last year Vassar College faculty and students held a meeting to discuss the school’s movement to boycott Israel. Before the meeting, an English professor announced the dialogue would “not be guided by cardboard notions of civility.” That professor’s vision differs little from Adolf Hitler’s brown-shirted thugs of the paramilitary wing of the Nazi Party in their effort to crush dissent.

Azusa Pacific University “postponed” a speech by political scientist Charles Murray to avoid “hurting our faculty and students of color.” Brandeis University officials rescinded their invitation to Somali writer and American Enterprise Institute scholar Ayaan Hirsi Ali, whose criticisms of radical Islam were said to have violated the school’s “core values.” Brandeis officials claimed that allowing her to speak would be hurtful to Muslim students.

Western values of liberty are under ruthless attack by the academic elite on college campuses across America. These people want to replace personal liberty with government control; they want to replace equality before the law with entitlement. As such, they pose a far greater threat to our way of life than any terrorist organization or rogue nation. Leftist ideas are a cancer on our society. Ironically, we not only are timid in response, but also nourish those ideas with our tax dollars and charitable donations.

Law Prof Sues Catholic University; Says Cross Offends Muslims



(Editor: www.thereportcard.org It’s not a joke, lawsuit gadfly Professor John Banzhaf is actually suing Catholic University because their cross will offend Muslims. Imagine, a Catholic College with the nerve to have Crosses on campus! Professor Banzhaf is not a Muslim, but rather an “activist” who goes around suing anyone and everyone. In this case Professor Banzhaf prepared a 60 page complaint which, at some point, Catholic University will need to use resources and respond. In an America that seems to be increasingly hostile to Christianity, one may expect more of this sort of nonsense in the future).


Muslims’ civil rights are being violated by the Catholic University of America’s prominent display of crosses and other signs of the Catholic faith, according to a complaint filed with the Washington, D.C., Office of Human Rights.

The instigator in this case is George Washington University GWU Law School Professor John Banzhaf, who says in his 60-page complaint that Catholic University is acting “probably with malice” and that all the Catholic imagery interferes with Muslims’ prayers.

Catholic University officials told BeliefNet they were surprised by the filing because they have never received a complaint from any of the university’s Muslim students.

Banzhaf’s complaint continues on to say that the university does not give Muslims their own prayer room and that they are forced to use rooms with assorted Catholic images.

Banzhaf also has a current lawsuit against the university over ending its co-ed dorms.

The university “does not provide space – as other universities do – for the many daily prayers Muslim students must make, forcing them instead to find temporarily empty classrooms where they are often surrounded by Catholic symbols which are incongruous to their religion,” according to the complaint.

Banzhaf then goes on to grouse about the cathedral that is the central focus of the campus, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

Patrick O’Reilly of the Cardinal Newman Society said, “He’s using the law for his own discrimination against the Catholic institution and essentially saying Catholic University cannot operate according to Catholic principles.”


This sort of thing seems to be par for the course these days.

Usually it’s the Freedom From Religion Foundation or some other atheist group stirring up this sort of trouble, but Banzhaf is a longtime “public interest” activist lawyer who’s history of lawsuits is all over the map, from smoking to childhood obesity.

But we’re living in an age when Christians are regularly told they can’t pray or practice their faith in public, even to the point of military chaplains being told they can’t invoke Jesus’ name. Considering recent “human rights” rulings against Christian bakers and such just for exercising their own rights, I wouldn’t hold my breath for this complaint to be dismissed.

The human rights office is “investigating” whether the university’s crosses and other Catholic paraphernalia violate Muslim rights. Wonder if they’ll ever get around to investigating whether this sort of religious harassment violates Catholics’ rights?

Florida College Names Muslim Linked to Terror Groups to Key Post

Saif Ishoof

Saif Ishoof

(Editor: www.thereportcard.org Radical Islam is rightly associated with global violence, but it has also been successful in infiltrating American educational institutions. Case in point, Florida International University just appointed Saif Ishoof VP for Engagement. Mr. Ishoof has a long history of association with terror organizations like CAIR/Hamas, and Emerge USA whose members have provided legal support to known terrorists. The very title of Mr. Ishoof, “VP for Engagement” is politically college code for Muslim outreach. If universities wish to engage with Islam, they would be better served to associate themselves with those not linked to terrorist organizations).


By Joel Kaufman Front Page Magazine


‘FIU names Saif Ishoof VP for Engagement.’ This was the headline of a press release sent out by Florida International University (FIU) in March. Does the Miami, Florida-based school know that the individual it appointed to this position is a radical Muslim involved in extremist causes and institutions?

According to the website of FIU’s Office of Engagement, “The office provides leadership for the development and coordination of partnerships at the local, state, national and international levels with the goal of aligning FIU’s instructional, research and creative initiatives with local and global needs and priorities.”


On March 6, FIU published a press release stating that it had granted its position of Vice President of its Office of Engagement to Guyana-born Saif Yamani Ishoof, who the school described as a “dynamic leader who is well known in South Florida for his commitment to partnerships and to improving the lives of young people.” The Miami Herald quotes Ishoof as saying that, in his new role, he will be responsible for “linking students, faculty and administrators with the outside world.”

According to FIU, Ishoof will also serve as a senior fellow in FIU’s School of International and Public Affairs.

The above news is disturbing, given the number of radical causes and institutions Ishoof is and has been involved with, beginning with his involvement in Emerge.

The FIU release states that Ishoof is co-founder and trustee of a group called Emerge USA. The title of the group can easily mislead people into believing that it is one that is patriotic, yet the nature of the group is the very opposite.

Emerge USA is the brainchild of Khurrum Wahid, who today acts as the group’s co-chairman and spokesman. Wahid, a South Florida attorney, has spent years representing those whom the U.S. government has charged with terrorist activity. They include: Rafiq Sabir, who received a 25-year prison sentence for conspiring to provide material support to al-Qaeda; Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who was given a life sentence for being part of al-Qaeda and for plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush; Hafiz Khan, a Miami, Florida imam who shipped $50,000 to the Taliban to kill American troops overseas; and Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami al-Arian


Wahid has previously served as a legal advisor for the national office of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and a director of CAIR’s Florida chapter. CAIR was originally founded, in June 1994, as part of an umbrella organization run by then-global leader of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook. CAIR was named by the U.S. Justice Department a co-conspirator for two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. And CAIR was recently labeled a terrorist group by United Arab Emirates (UAE).

According to the Miami New Times, Wahid himself was placed on a federal terrorist watch list in 2011.

In December 2014, Emerge co-sponsored an event for the Muslim Students Association (MSA) with a number of organizations which have been associated with Hamas and/or al-Qaeda financing, including CAIR, ICNA Relief and Islamic Relief.



In August 2006, ICNA Relief was the top donor and partner to Pakistani charity Al Khidmat Foundation (AKF), at the same time AKF took a delegation to Damascus, Syria to hand deliver nearly $100,000 to Hamas global leader Khaled Mashal. Mashal thanked the group and said Hamas would continue to wage “jihad” (war) on the “Zionist yoke” (Israel). ICNA Relief continues to work directly with AKF overseas.


Both Israel and UAE have designated Islamic Relief a “terrorist organization.” In May 2006, Israel arrested the group’s Gaza program manager, Ayaz Ali, for providing “funds and assistance to various Hamas institutions and organizations.” Ali admitted he had cooperated with local Hamas operatives. In 1999, IR collected and sent more than $6 million to Chechen rebels linked to al-Qaeda. That same year, IR received $50,000 from Human Concern International (HCI), a charity that the U.S. Treasury Department labeled a “Bin Laden front.”

Days ago, on April 30th, Emerge featured as a speaker at its Second Annual Founders Benefit Society Dinner held in Arlington, Virginia, Islamic lecturer Sayed Ammar Nakshawani. Nakshawani is a follower of Iranian terror leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and has previously called for the destruction of Israel.

In a speech made by Nakshawani, titled ‘Sayed Khomeini’s Quds Day,’ he states, “The shame in this world is that, if we put ourselves down to a two-state solution, we would allow a country which has broken 60 UN resolutions to have their own freedom of peace. It is barbaric that this Zionist state is allowed to continue.”

This was not the first time Emerge featured Nakshawani at one of its events. He was also the keynote speaker at Emerge’s Annual Miami Benefit Dinner, held in South Florida in May 2014.

Saif Ishoof was in attendance for both events, at least one of which he was a speaker as well.

Prior to getting involved with Emerge, Ishoof was the rally organizer and contact for the extreme anti-Israel group, March for Justice. The other contact and spokesman of the group was Nidal Sakr, who was arrested in March 2014 after returning to the U.S. from Egypt, where he was a rally organizer for the Muslim Brotherhood.


While with March for Justice, Ishoof organized an event at the University of Miami, in October 2002, which labeled then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon “the world’s longest standing terrorist” and Israel an “illegitimate state.” Ishoof said he was “outraged” that his former university would host then-senior advisor to Sharon, Raanan Gissin, referring to Gissin as “a mouthpiece of state sponsored terrorism.”

Today, Ishoof is a director of Nur-Ul-Islam Academy, a Muslim children’s school located in Cooper City, Florida whose former Vice President was Hamas fundraiser Raed Awad. Awad was the Florida representative for the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), a Hamas charity that was shut down by the U.S. government in December 2001. Awad was also the imam who oversaw the conversion to Islam by convicted terrorist and “Dirty Bomber,” Jose Padilla.

According to corporation documents, Ishoof was officially named a director of the school in January 2008, at a time when the home page of the Nur-Ul-Islam website contained links to violent, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian material, including having a link to islamway.com, a website that encouraged its viewers to donate to Hamas.

The radical associations of Saif Ishoof ought to make FIU think twice about their appointment of him.

People who are involved with groups like Emerge, CAIR, March for Justice or Nur-Ul-Islam should not be embraced by legitimate institutions, especially those dealing with youth, as FIU – an upstanding educational facility – does.

These persons should, instead, be shunned from society.

Dr. Mark B. Rosenberg is the President of FIU. According to his Curriculum Vitae, he is as well a member of the Board of Directors for the Holocaust Memorial of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and a member of the Florida Advisory Committee for the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, an organization which deals in matters of national security and foreign policy.

Texas Teacher Fired for an Assignment on Islamic Violence




(Editor: www.thereportcard.org  Dale Woolverton was fired from his job at Foster High School in Richmond, Texas for assigning his students a paper on whether Islam is an ideology of war. That is a reasonable assumption given daily global violence, murder and mayhem in the name of Islam. However, a student was evidently offended and that student’s family contacted the Council of American Islam Relations (CAIR). CAIR, a branch of HAMAS, a State Department designated terrorist organization, complained to the school district, and Mr. Woolverton was fired. That same school district taught a class on Sharia Law and a pro-Islamic video “30 Days Living as a Muslim)”



By Merrill Hope  Breitbart News


The Texas teacher who came under attack over an eight-page handout that was purportedly “anti-Islam” has resigned from the Houston area school district where he was employed. The official announcement came at the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District’s (ISD) monthly board meeting on Tuesday night, April 14. Parents were not happy with this news.

Dale “Herby” Woolverton is the Foster High school government teacher under fire for the assignment that called Muhammad a false prophet, and Islam an ideology of war.

Woolverton turned in his resignation letter on April 8 once an investigation was launched over the assignment. However, the anticipated announcement of his resignation brought parents and community members out in droves on Tuesday night. There was an outpouring of support for the 20-year veteran teacher. One parent called him the “definition of what an educator should be.”

Many were there to attempt to have Woolverton reinstated in the classroom. They felt the district handled the matter unfairly. Parent Sean Davis told ABC 13,”If it’s going to move this way, I don’t want my child here.” He added, “I’ll take my child somewhere else.”

Another Lamar Consolidated ISD taxpayer, a woman, took to the microphone and told board members, “Our community has been outraged at the lack of support shown for this educator.”

Previously, district officials said they would discipline Woolverton for making independent changes to a lesson guide with information that went outside the curriculum. Despite the resignation, the matter remains under investigation, according to a district statement.

ABC 13 also reported that the investigation was triggered by a lone student offended by the handout. Her parents contacted the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Then, CAIR went to the school board, claiming that the problem with the handout was that the information on it was wrong.

Ruth Nasrallah, a CAIR Houston representative, was at the board meeting and reiterated that the advocacy group did not have a problem with “the open exchange of ideas — democracy requires that,” although she insisted that the assignment did not have the facts.

CAIR identifies itself as a civil rights organization. Breitbart News reported that CAIR  has been associated with radical Islamist groups, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, which the United Arab Emirates (UAE) put on a terrorist organization list that also named CAIR and the Muslim American Society (MAS).


The district continues to assert that the teacher didn’t follow the state or local curriculum. Some parents agree.

Lamar Consolidated ISD’s statement also noted “Ensuring our students have access to factual information, given in the proper context, is a priority in our District. It’s important for the community to understand that we’re legally prohibited from commenting on the specifics of a student or staff issue.”

Mike Rockford, Executive Director of Community Relations for the school district, again expressed his disappointment over Woolverton’s actions to Breitbart News, although he failed to mention that in 2013, a Social Studies teacher on another Lamar Consolidated ISD campus, George Ranch High School, calendared in the viewing of the Islamo-friendly video 30 Days Living as a Muslim on February 7 and a Sharia Law class on May 13.

Muslim Students Force U of M to Cancel American Sniper



(Editor: www.thereportcard.org The University of Maryland is the third college to cancel a showing of American Sniper because of politically correct pressure from Muslim student groups. Rensselaer delayed screening and the University of Michigan first cancelled the movie then reversed themselves when a majority of students cried “censorship.” The Muslim student groups say American Sniper is “Islamophobic.” That magic adjective is all it takes for college administrators to quake with fear and cancel the First Amendment on campus. The university left now practices a form of totalitarian censorship against what they dislike and promote indoctrination about things they do like-such as anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian causes)

by Christine Rouselle Townhall

The film American Sniper has run in to controversy once again on a college campus, as a showing of the movie has been canceled at the University of Maryland following student outcry that the movie is Islamaphobic.

The university decided to cancel the screening after outcry from Muslim students on campus. The Muslim Students Association at the University of Maryland even started a petition requesting that the school pull the screening of American Sniper. In the petition, the group stated that the film “perpetuates the spread of Islamaphobia and is offensive to many Muslims around the world for good reason.”

Ironically enough, the group also requested that students “exercise their freedom of speech” by signing the petition to remove the film from campus. MSA seemingly got their wish this morning when the school decided to cancel the screening.



UMD is not the only school that has seen controversy erupt over the film. The University of Michigan initially canceled its showing of American Sniper, but reversed following an even larger outcry from upset students who wanted to see the movie. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) also delayed showing the film after complaints from the Muslim Students Association. George Mason University in Virginia has also seen students protest to ban the film from campus.

It’s curious to see how quickly schools are folding on the issue of American Sniper. The petition at the University of Maryland garnered only 318 signatures–compared to the over 26,000 undergraduates enrolled at the school, that number is incredibly tiny. At Michigan, a “couple hundred” students signed a letter condemning the film before administrators folded. (A petition to bring the film back to campus, however, garnered over 600 signatures.)

When I was back in college and I didn’t like a movie that was being shown or wasn’t interested in an event, I simply found another activity to do that night. With thousands of undergrads, there’s bound to be something else happening in College Park. Viewing American Sniper (or going to any of these random events on campus) is not a graduation requirement. It’s 2015. Netflix/Hulu Plus/Amazon Prime/questionably legal online sources are all viable ways to watch a movie in ones own dorm room as an alternative to something put on by the school. Students should act like adults and trust their classmates to make their own decisions.
