Hatem Bazian Plays Victim Card Again at Berkeley
by Gary Fouse
UC Berkeley's number one victicrat, Hatem Bazian, was the center piece of a panel discussion at UC Berkeley that discussed the status of Muslims in Europe in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo and Jewish deli massacres.
"The broader Muslim community in Europe feels like it's under siege."
At least this time there was some balance to the panel. Not everyone agreed with the tears shed by Bazian and his sidekick, Saba Mahmoud. Nonetheless, it was apparently lost on Bazian and Mahmoud that it is the Jews in Europe-especially France- who are under siege and leaving in fear for their lives. From where I sit, the only Muslims who are leaving Europe are those running off to join ISIS.
Is this the same Hatem Bazian who reportedly once told a campus audience that they should count the number of Jewish names on university buildings? Is this the same Hatem Bazian who once reportedly quoted that quaint little hadith about the Day of Judgment, when the Jews would hide behind the rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees would call out, "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me. Come and kill him"? Is this the same Hatem Bazian who is on videotape calling for an intifada in the US?
Just who is besieging whom here?Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
