David Horowitz asks a single question, eliciting a very revealing response from a Muslim student

H/T: The Right Scoop

David Horowitz, Editor-in-Chief of News Real Blog, spoke Monday night at UCSD to offer balance of opinion as the Muslim Student Association(MSA) sponsored Israeli Apartheid Week: A Call to Boycott, Divest, and Sanction Israel – May 10th – May 13th, 2010 on campus. Horowitz received a question from a student Jimena Imad Musa Ahmal Bahiri, who seems intent on showing Horowitz as spreading false information about connections between MSA’s and Jihad terrorist networks.  The entire exchange, seen in the video here , is fascinating.  It is Horowitz final question to the student, however, that uncovers a profound hatred in the young woman:

Horowitz: If you don’t condemn Hamas, obviously you support it.  Case closed.  I have had this experience at UC Santa Barbara, where there were 50 members of the Muslim Students Association sitting right in the rows there.  And throughout my hour talk I kept asking them, will you condemn Hizbollah and Hamas. And none of them would.  And then when the question period came, the president of the Muslim Students Association was the first person to ask a question. And I said, ‘Before you start, will you condemn Hizbollah?’ And he said, ‘Well, that question is too complicated for a yes or no answer.’ So I said, ‘Okay, I’ll put it to you this way.  I am a Jew.  The head of Hizbollah has said that he hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn’t have to hunt us down globally.  For or Against it?

MSA member: For it.

As you will see in the video, the young woman appears to have spent much if not all of her life in America.  She has little if any discernible accent when she speaks.  She has been taught to feel this anger and hatred.  It seems highly unlikely to me she would be interested in truly hearing Mr. Horowitz’s opinions.  Rather she uses the opportunity to reinforce her own beliefs.    Credit her with honesty for her willingness to state on the record she would support such a “goal.”  If she were a wiser person she might find a future filled with violence against the Jews solves nothing.  It will, however, assure more war and despair for future generations in the Middle East.  How very sad.
