The far left demands tolerance from everyone else while refusing to acknowledge that it’s a two-way street.
This was exhibited in spades earlier this week at a university demonstration.
Pro-Palestinian members of the community joined University of California – Davis students Monday to disrupt a lecture being given on campus by Israeli diplomat George Deek, a self-described Arab-Israeli Christian.
Deek was invited by the student organization “Aggies For Israel” to speak on “The Art of Middle East Diplomacy,” a title which some people found oddly offensive, according to The Vanguard, the UC-Davis student newspaper.
So, the students decided to be really offensive. They marched through the room chanting, “Free, free Palestine,” “long live the intifada,” which is another word for terror, and “Allahu Akbar.”
They sang, “Palestine will be free, fight white supremacy!” along with “Israel is anti-black!”
The group issued this statement.
We note the continuity between the foundational racism of Israel and that of the United States, and see the continuity between Israeli anxiety over the reproduction of non-white, non-Ashkenazi bodies and the history of sterilization of indigenous and Black women in the United States. We, therefore, are opposed to entities that impose or directly enable these injustices to persist, and we will not tolerate or allow for such people to have a platform to speak on our campus, nor will we engage in pseudo ‘dialogue’ with them.
What they seem to ignore is that Israel is perhaps the only country in the Middle East where anyone of any sex, religion or race has not only the right to vote, but the right to hold public office.
