Daniel Pipes on the Seattle Jewish Federation shooter

I used to read Daniel Pipes on a regular basis until he dropped off the deep end with racial profiling and internment camps.

Today, however, the Jerusalem Post published a column by him on the Naveed Haq, who according to news reports allegedly murdered one person and wounded five others after pushing his way in to the building with a gun to a 14-year-old girl's back. (I have to say "allegedly" since he hasn't been convicted yet)

What concerned me - and what I think everybody needs to read - is the following statement in that column:

sudden jihad syndrome never erupts in isolation, but results from a steady diet of antisemitic, anti-Zionist, anti-Christian, and anti-American incitement fed by Islamist mosques, schools, voluntary associations, and media. Leftist demonizing of Israel further contributes to the problem.

Say, isn't that exactly what we've been experiencing at UCI on a near-weekly basis? Is that the basis of the ZOA complaint to the US Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights, as well as the findings and recommendations by the US Commission on Civil Rights?

People who know Mr. Haq confirm that this barrage of influences shaped his outlook. "Haq didn't like President Bush," notes one person. Another said Mr. Haq "displayed a streak of anti-Semitism, sometimes making offhand comments about Jews." He complained that "Jews run the media" and believed Jews control the U.S. economy.

Gee, isn't that Amir Abdel Malik Ali's line - someone so favored by the MSU that they gave him a monetary reward as a thank you for his efforts?

Blame for Mr. Haq's evil rampage falls on the executioner himself and on the Islamists and leftists who manipulated his confused mind and susceptible character.

Ya hear that MSU and SAS? I can't make it any clearer.

In fact, let me also alert Chancellor Drake: if any violence happens as a result of the anti-Semitism promoted at UCI, the UCI administration will be held responsible since UCI never enforced the rules that were, are, and will continue to be violated right in front of multiple members of the UCI administration. At best, I believe the term would be "negligence".


Mr. Pipes added a weblog with more info on Naveed Haq
