The Terrorist Mindset

Prof. AbuKhalil, a professor of political science at California State University, Stanislaus and visiting professor at UC, Berkeley, teaches young American students. On his Angry Arab News Service today he celebrates the recent terrorist attacks in Israel.

" So there was an attack on Israeli military target today," he reports to his many readers.

Here is a description of the attack:

"GUNMEN yesterday opened fire on two Israeli buses in separate attacks near the southern city of Eilat, killing five and wounding many others before three were killed themselves.

The incidents prompted a defence official to describe the shootings as part of a ''wave of terrorist attacks''.

Israel Defence Forces killed three gunmen, a defence spokesman said, while in other incidents, attackers fired an anti-tank missile at a private car carrying civilians and a device exploded next to an IDF patrol".

You shouldn't be surprised that for Abukhalil, buses carrying passengers from one city to another and a private car carrying civilians are tantamount to "a military target". If you recall, Abukhalil really hearts Samir Quntar, the the "person' responsible for crushing a Jewish toddler's head against a rock because she was a "soldier". Terrorist minds think alike.

And this is the person entrusted by the University of California to teach its students about knowledge, truth and decency.



In this post, does the grotesque prof of political science at California State University, Stanislaus and visiting professor at UC, Berkeley, hint at his satisfaction with the fact that "frostier relations ... have developed between [Egypt and the US] since the fall in February of President Hosni Mubarak, who for 30 years was one of America's most reliable allies."?

In this post, does the the grotesque prof of political science at California State University, Stanislaus and visiting professor at UC, Berkeley, complain that the Jordanians " gave an early warning to the Israeli government about an impending attack." ??

In this post, does the the grotesque prof of political science at California State University, Stanislaus and visiting professor at UC, Berkeley, express excitement over the possibility that more Israeli cars will be attacked by anti-tank missiles and more Israeli civilians get shot at point blank by Middle Eastern terrorists?

" I don't want to make prediction but I can make one: Israelis and Zionists worldwide will be shedding more tears .... I wish Zionists can read Arabic* so that I can share with them Arab youths' excitement over the attack on Israel yesterday. "

Can anyone believe that this "professor" is actually teaching young people about proper thinking and ethics at a respectable American University? Never mind the murderous hallucinations of this Pygmy mind; what about his IQ level?

* Google translation can give one a good impression:

"Tens of citizens this afternoon in Tahrir Square in preparation for the exit in a massive march to the headquarters of the Israeli Embassy to express their anger at death of an officer belonging to the border guards and recruits of the Central Security, others injured in an Israeli shell over the Egyptian border yesterday.

The protesters demanded the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador in Cairo and take firm action against the Israeli practices, calling for the severance of relations with the Zionist entity.

Not been affected by the traffic to demonstrate the field, where the Security Forces were present extensively and helped to clear traffic.

On the other hand, dozens protested outside the headquarters of the Israeli Embassy in Cairo, Egypt, carrying flags and chanting slogans condemning the blatant Israeli aggression on the Egyptian border, and calling on the forces of reaction.

In the face of the U.S. embassy in Cairo, dozens also demonstrated to condemn U.S. support for Israel and demanding the release of Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman is being held in U.S. prisons

A reminder of who Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman is:

" ... commonly known in the United States as "The Blind Sheikh", is a blind Egyptian Muslim leader who is currently serving a life sentence at the Butner Medical Center which is part of the Butner Federal Correctional Institution in Butner, North Carolina, United States. Formerly a resident of New York City, Abdel-Rahman and nine others were convicted of seditious conspiracy,[1] which requires only that a crime be planned, not that it necessarily be attempted. His prosecution grew out of investigations of the World Trade Center 1993 bombings.

Abdel-Rahman was accused of being the leader of Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya (also known as "The Islamic Group"), a militant Islamist movement in Egypt that is considered a terrorist organization by the United States and Egyptian governments. The group is responsible for many acts of violence, including the November 1997 Luxor massacre, in which 58 foreign tourists and four Egyptians were killed." (wiki)

True to form, the professor of political science at California State University, Stanislaus and visiting professor at UC, Berkeley, who teaches young American students, seems strangely elated by reports about young Egyptians calling for the release of an arch-terrorist, convicted of master-minding terrorist attacks on Western infidels. Maybe he had dinner with the venerable Sheik, during which he arrived at the conclusion that that everything that the US claimed about him was a flat out lie.

here are two very different ways to pep up your summer doldrums:
Spengler aka David Goldman just started a daily blog at PJM - he will continue at Asia Times, but here you can comment. So far, the threads are stimulatingly not knee-jerk partisan. And, so far, he joins in. Here is the bookmark:

In one of his posts, he delves into the future of Israel and Russian relations. Which makes this Time mag on the Cossack revival ever so freakish:

"...Khramov is one of the movement's key ideologues in Ukraine, and his preaching has reached many of the boys who attend the Cossack camps. (Among the ideas he spouted during his interview with TIME were the notions that the U.S. is a satanic nation secretly run by the Rockefeller family, that Jews practice ritual sacrifice and necrophilia, and that Vladimir Putin, Khramov's political hero, is a future saint of the Russian Orthodox Church.)...",8599,2088949-2,00.html

I confess that I am about to return to Austen for a big dose of P&P therapy.

BTW, Sophia railed at me for mentioning that Obama just removed Jerusalem from Israel in one of the Rick Perry threads. Thanks for your citations in the Peretz thread. I could not find the detail and let Sophia have her way - as usual, I am being independent-of-the-choir and Perry is their new Palin.

see ya. maybe at pjm/spengler? You would love his post/thread on whether Israel should ban Wagner.

How is it possible that this guy still holds his position at Berkeley?
Isn't there an ethics committee or something to lodge a complaint against him?

It all falls under "academic freedom".

Academic freedom my foot. If he said anything like it about any other country, ethnicity or minority, the politically correct squad would hit his career like a ton of bricks.
But unfortunately we're talking about Israel here...

David Grossman's "To the End of the Land," is on Obama's summer reading list.

Latma has a wonderful skit where a terrorist who is planning a suicide bombing reads a dust-jacket review of Grossman's book and is so moved that he decides to give it all up and embrace non-violence.

Puts it all in perspective very nicely...

Will James: I recently got high speed, and Latma is my favorite!
still laughing from the Palestinian Statehood "interview".

The Obamas have left the Vineyard for DC, a day early. The wrath of G-d via Irene.

K2K, I have been practicing Ronit's opening line (in Hebrew): "The most objective news show on television". It's a mouthful, but if I ever get to meet her, that'll be my attempt at a pickup line... ;>)

The storm on the East Coast is messing up people's Italy travel plans. Obviously all Obama's fault!
