A Jewish University Hires Jew-Hater!

Here's a great example of HIGHER education getting snookered by the allure of the peaceful Islam. From those diligent defenders of campus free speech, and monitors of encroaching IslamOfascism in American colleges and universities: Campus Watch.

Providing new evidence of the academic Left's hardened anti-Americanism and sympathy for jihad terror, Khalil Shikaki has been appointed a senior fellow at Brandeis University's Crown Center for Middle East Studies.

Shikaki's involvement with Middle Eastern politics and culture has long been more hands-on than that of most academics. On February 24, 1998, terrorism expert Steven Emerson gave this testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee: 'Professor Khalil Shikaki seemed to possess such an impassioned voice for moderate political solutions to the Middle Eastern problems that it prompted the USF [the University of South Florida] to finalize its cooperative relationship with WISE [the World & Islam Studies Enterprise, of which Shikaki was the first director]. Yet documents seized by federal officials uncovered a wealth of information, including incriminating letters, proving Khalil Shikaki using Shallah as a courier to ferry information, messages and even operational materials to his brother Fathi in Damascus, head of Islamic Jihad. When publicly asked however, Khalil always maintained he had no contact with his brother.'

On May 23, 2000, Emerson gave additional and quite specific information about Khalil Shikaki when testifying about the World & Islam Studies Enterprise before the House Judiciary Committee: 'Documents seized by federal agents at the WISE office in November 1995 show that Khalil Shikaki, after his departure from WISE in 1992, contacted his brother Fathi Shikaki through Ramadan Abdullah. Evidence released in the federal investigation against WISE and ICP included a letter and a fax between Abdullah and Khalil Shikaki showing that Abdullah served as a go-between for the brothers. These communications contained references to various matters including support for a project headed by ‘Abu Omar,' a nom de guerre of Hamas leader Musa Abu Marzook…. In comments made by Khalil Shikaki on December 24, 1989 at the ICP Annual Conference, he proclaimed support for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad as a unifying element of the Islamic resistance in Palestine.' ..."

Clearly, this guy looks pretty damn dirty. How this info could get by a leading Jewish Unversity is beyond me.

But, maybe it didn't get by them. Maybe they knew all this.

And if so, then why would they want someone in their midst that most assuredly wants them dead?

Someone who wants all their families dead.

Someone who wants all of their fellow Jews around the world dead.

What is wrong with this picture?

What is really going on?

Do some Jews really condone terrorists killing innocent Jews?

Or do they really just think they can make friends with these radical IslamOfascists?

Maybe if they hug enough they will change their evil ideology?
