A “terrorism” flier sparked a huge protest among Muslim students at San Diego State University, and they literally mobbed the police car that was attempting to escort university president Elliot Hirshman off campus, preventing the car from moving for about two hours.
Fliers had surfaced on campus naming seven students and claimed they “have allied themselves with Palestinian terrorists to perpetrate hatred” against Jewish students on campus. The fliers were from the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
Hirshman sent out an email to all students, asking for civility, and while admitting that everyone had a right to make controversial statements, he questioned whether naming individual students was an effective tactic.
He was having to walk a fine line between free speech rights, and hundreds of offended Muslim students.
The Muslim students said that wasn’t enough, and mobbed the car, preventing him from leaving campus. They demanded he apologize for issuing an “inadequate denunciation” of a pro-Israel flyer.
Some said he should resign – because he failed to protect them from the hurtful words printed on the fliers.
“My friends are not terrorist, and if their names are being posted around campus that’s an issue of security,” one student, Jeanette Corona, told The San Diego Union Tribune.
“No student should be demonized. … It’s Hirshman’s job to ensure the safety of all students on this campus.”
The students have started a petition calling for Hirshman’s resignation. Currently it has 568 signatures.
The Muslim Students Association believe Hirshman failed in his role as president because he didn’t protect them from the offensive material. They want to feel safe on campus – both physically and emotionally.
All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

"We are looking forward to the day when moderate Muslims will be able to take control of their governments, their educational systems, and their law and order, so the Western world could resume mutual constructive relations based on friendship and respect. The whole world is looking forward to that day and praying for a peaceful Middle East. The ball is now in the Muslim world's court."

"An Islamic regime must be serious in every field," explained Ayatollah Khomeini. "There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humour in Islam. There is no fun in Islam."
"I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It's real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let's not pretend it isn't." ~~~~~Bono~~~~~
