Radical Islam at UC Berkeley Law

Writing for Campus Watch at American Thinker, Stephen Schwartz reports on a recent conference at UC Berkeley Law School in which "Islamophobia production" took center stage. It begins like so:

The exploitation of the University of California's Bay Area law schools as a platform for Arab and Islamist propaganda continues. A convocation on "Litigating Palestine," replete with extreme rhetoric against Israel, was held at Hastings Law School in San Francisco on March 25-26, 2011--without official endorsement by Hastings--and on April 20-21, an equally radical conference took place at UC Berkeley Law School. It was held in Boalt Hall and presented to the wider public via streaming video.

The Berkeley event was hosted by the University's Center for Race and Gender (CRG) and titled, in the style of post-modern academia, "Islamophobia Production and Re-Defining Global 'Security' Agenda for the 21st Century." Within CRG, the function appeared under the rubric of the Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project, directed by Hatem Bazian, a senior lecturer in the department of Near Eastern studies. Conference publicity stated that the speeches "will be published in UC Berkeley's Islamophobia Studies Journal, inaugural edition, Fall, 2011."

. . . The heaviest hitters on the speakers' list, with regard to their widespread public activities, were CAIR executive director Nihad Awad, Hamza Yusuf, and Hatem Bazian. The three appeared on an April 21, 2011, evening panel, which dealt with "Community Partnership" and was moderated by Munir Jiwa, director of the GTU Center for Islamic Studies.

informed rational freedom loving people have all the reasons in the world to fear islam which is based on the life of a murdering 8th century warlord.

the twin fogs of political correctness & ignorance must be dispersed before western society better understands this menace. even a brief review of islamic theology & history quickly exposes the deadly roots of this evil ideology.

see the links in the pdf version below for more accurate info about islam
==========

islam is a horrible ideology for human rights

5 key things about islam

1. mythical beliefs - all religions have these (faith) because its part of being a religion: having beliefs without proof until after the believer dies. the problem is people will believe almost anything.

2. totalitarianism - islam has no seperation of church and state: sharia law governs all. there is no free will in islam: only submission to the will of allah as conveniently determined by the imams who spew vapors to feather their own nests. there are no moderate muslims: they all support sharia law.

3. violence - islam leads the pack of all religions in violent tenets for their ideology & history: having eternal canonical imperatives for supremacy at all costs and calling for violence & intimidation as basic tools to achieve these goals.

4. dishonesty - only islam has dishonesty as a fundamental tenet: this stems from allah speaking to mohamhead & abrogation in the koran which is used to explain how mo's peaceful early life was superseded by his warlord role later.

5. misogyny - present day islam is still rooted in 8th century social ethics: treating females as property of men good only for children, severely limiting their activities, dressing them in shower curtains and worse.

conclusions ??

there really are NO redeeming qualities for this muddled pile of propaganda.

islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.
