On Sunday, Rutgers University hosted the 14th Annual Interfaith Prophet Muhammad Conference.
The speakers were Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who had just falsely accused Jews of a blood libel, Craig Considine, a Catholic apologist for Islam who supports BDS, and Imam Sayed Moustafa Al-Qazwini, an Iranian-trained Shiite cleric who had accused Israel of being behind ISIS.
This panel of Jew hatred was a project of Muslims 4 Peace promoting Islamic migration. But the founder of Americans Against Anti-Semitism instead showed up to ask them some tough questions about hate.
“What about your anti-Semitism?” Dov Hikind, a former elected Democrat official who now takes on anti-Semitism in his former party, challenged Rep. Tlaib as she declaimed about racism in America.
Hikind was immediately confronted by a man in a keffiyah. Rutgers police officers surrounded the founder of Americans Against Anti-Semitism and escorted him out of the room for asking an elected official about anti-Semitism at a state university funded by the taxpayers of New Jersey.
The “Interfaith” Mohammed conference had consisted of two Muslim panelists and one token Christian who spends much of his time promoting Islam and bashing Israel.
There had not been a single panelist of another religion.
The agenda of the conference was promoting migration “from Syria, Afghan, Somalia, Sudan, Myanmar, and Latin America”. All but the last region on the list produces Muslim migrants.
The conference materials whitewashed Mohammed’s ethnic cleansing of Jews by claiming that the, “Prophet Muhammad historically has been known to assist migrants who have escaped religious persecution when they fled from Mecca to Medina.” In reality, Mohammed had turned the Jewish population of Medina into corpses, slaves, and refugees. The sex slavery practiced by ISIS began with its prophet and Jewish women and girls were among the first victims of the original Islamic conquests.
The irresponsible decision by Rutgers to allow a fake interfaith conference by bigots whitewashing ethnic cleansing and anti-Semitism was as disgusting as it was predictable. The college has an ugly history of aiding and abetting hatred of Jews on campus by organizations advocating for Muslims.
