There’s unfortunately, way too many of them these days…..
THE STRANGE ISLAMIST CAREER OF A DAVID HOROWITZ CAMPUS CRITIC
When you reject awareness of Islamo-fascism, you become its slave.
Ten years ago, Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week came to Columbia University.
A month earlier, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian leader who had called for the destruction of Israel and denied the Holocaust, had been invited to speak at Columbia. After that shameful event, Columbia University’s College Republicans invited David Horowitz to counter the anti-Semitic hatred and lies.
“I can’t talk about Columbia without mentioning that it is a center of Jew hatred,” Horowitz said.
Opposing David Horowitz’s condemnation of anti-Semitism at Columbia was the Progressive Jewish Alliance composed of a group that included Alana Krivo-Kaufman and Shlomo Bolts. The “Alliance” announced plans to make armbands and t-shirts protesting Horowitz.
They also wanted to invite the Columbia professors listed by Horowitz in his “101 Most Dangerous Academics in America” book to speak.
These would have included Nicholas De Genova, who had said, “The only true heroes are those who would find ways that help defeat the U.S. military. I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus.” And Joseph Massad, who had declared that the, “Jewish state is a racist state that does not have the right to exist.”
A decade later, Alana Krivo-Kaufman is the Senior Regional Organizer for the radical JVP hate group which pushes BDS and the destruction of Israel. Kaufman’s resume follows a radical activist pipeline from Social Justice Coordinator at Beit Simchat Torah, to Jews for Racial and Economic Justice and Jewish Funds for Justice. Despite their misleading names, behind the camouflage is the anti-Semitic left.
But it’s Shlomo Bolts who has made a strange and horrifying journey.
Bolts got started protesting David Horowitz after the Ahmadinejad visit. “I was not a fan of Ahmadinejad, but I thought the backlash was a bit much,” he has said. “Horowitz says lots of bigoted things against Arabs. I don’t think his views have any place in the Jewish community.”
But these days, Shlomo Bolts attacks Iran as the Jewish advance man for the Syrian American Council.
The Syrian American Council is a Brotherhood-linked lobby pushing for American intervention on behalf of the Jihadists in Syria. It has been linked to anti-Semitism as ugly as anything from Ahmadinejad.
