Berkeley Students Forced to Tweet on 'Islamophobia'


In 2002, when Prof. Daniel Pipes launched his “Campus Watch” initiative to monitor “the mixing of politics with scholarship” on American universities with regard to the Mideast, he was condemned as engaging in “McCarthyesque” intimidation.

His initiative was derided as a “war on academic freedom.” One Islamist group labelled Pipes the “grandfather of Islamophobes”.

However, 12 years after Pipes first raised the flag of Islamist penetration of U.S. universities, it appears the scholar of Islam, with a dozen books to his credit, was right to be concerned.

Two weeks ago, I received a panicked message from a student enrolled at the University of California, Berkeley.

He wrote: “I’ve been told by one of my professors I will be required, as part of my grade, to start a Twitter account and tweet weekly on Islamophobia. I can’t help but feel this is unethical. This is his agenda not mine.”

The professor conducting this exercise was Hatem Bazian as part of a course titled, “Asian American Studies 132AC: Islamophobia”.

When I asked him to elaborate on his concerns the student wrote: “There are 100 students in the class, all of us forced to create individual Twitter accounts. I’m not wholly clear on what our final project is yet (I find it very interesting that he excludes both the Twitter account requirement AND the final project from his official syllabus), but we have to meet with a group in San Francisco, and our class will be surveying people of color on the impact of some ads put out by (anti-Sharia blogger) Pamela Gellar. Now I’m no Pamela Gellar fan, I think she’s nuts, but I feel ... between the Twitter stuff and the final project he’s basically using us as unpaid labor to work on his agenda.”

I wrote to Prof. Bazian, who co-founded “Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP)” at Berkeley, asking why he was using his students to pursue what appeared to me to be a political exercise meant to propagate a specific message to the Twitterverse.

Bazian replied, without referring to Islamophobia:

You must admit this Islamic nationalization of the USA has been taken down in a very intelligent yet quit manner.

The Islamist by and large have relocated to capitol cities of most us states and to major universities.

They have also relocated and immigrated in quantity to The US capitol in DC.

Interesting to see where all this will lead when one day it will be the communist socialist along with the Islamist fighting for ultimate control for now they are united in the overtaking and destruction of the American way of Life and Liberty

"islamophobia" is just another variant of the word "homophobia".
Phobia means "fear of". The use of these words consistently and repititiously is to instill the message that those who reject Islam and homosexuality do so because they 'fear it'. I'm amazed at the compliance of his students and then again I'm not. They are blind in their own rebellion and ignorance, and thus unknowingly but willingly serve the devil as it's angels come as messengers of righteousness.

They must silence the true reasons because truth speaks for itself :
Islam is a religion of works of the law and God says "My righteous shall live by faith"

These kids grew up never understanding faith versus works. They've bought hook, line and sinker the devil's lie that God will have to owe them if they just 'do good'. Sadly, they choose to make God the debtor never ever understanding that it's they who are digging themselves deeper into debt. And by rejecting calls to repentance and faith in Christ, they reject the One who already paid that debt. Thus they remain prison serving sin and death.
