A brand new, first-of-its-kind Muslim college at Berkeley, California, received its accreditation March 15, 2015 from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Zaytuna College has two co-founders. One, Hamza Yusuf, states that this first Muslim college gives “our community its first accredited academic address in the U.S. And we hope, God willing, that there will be more such Muslim colleges and universities to come.”
Most Americans know Islamic mosques are popping up all over the U.S., in big cities and in small rural towns. Less know there are some 22 Islamic training camps (12 along the east coast and four in California). I frequently fly between Israel and the U.S. At security, men and women in Islamic headdresses perform security checks and handle baggage. At a DC area mall, I observed the presence of almost as many Muslim mothers pushing baby strollers and trailed by their other children as there were women wearing traditional American garb. Indeed, the Obama administration has instigated a massive, deliberate importation of Muslim refugees from Syria, Jordan and elsewhere. This population is growing faster than most Americans care to admit.
In the old days, who would have cared how many nations or ideologies were seen, especially between Boston, New York and D.C. I remember when the Hare Krishna converts seemed to be everywhere in D.C. as were women from India with their long dresses and forehead jewels, as an example. But they didn’t fly airplanes into tall buildings or vow to kill all Americans who refused to convert to their religious beliefs. What does a little Muslim college in Berkeley, California, have to do with a rapidly expanding Muslim presence in the United States? Believe me, just as all Germans were not Hitlers; all Muslims are not terrorists but a rose by any other name is still a rose. Whether benign or guilty, the Quran is still the Quran and Sharia Law is Sharia Law.
Look at it this way. If you see bees swarming in your attic, you instinctively know each bee is not dangerous. In fact, the entire beehive, in the right place for the right purpose is beneficial. Think honey. But, what if your attic had two types of bees that had made their nests and were swarming and you couldn’t tell the difference between the two. One was deadly and the other was not. Now you have a dilemma that must be carefully solved. An exterminator would surely rid your home of the deadly bees, preserving most of the honey bees. Would you dare to intervene and try to coddle and preserve the killer bees the way the U.S. is coddling and preserving its Islamist enemies? Bees build hives; Islamists build caliphates – and they kill people to do it.
Hatem Bazien, the second founder of the new Muslim college, does not appear to be of innocent intent. Bazien was accused of whipping up anti-Semitism on campuses across the U.S. and also aided in the establishment of “Students for Justice in Palestine” which is an anti-Israel organization. He supported the Iraqi insurgency, April 2004, at a rally in San Francisco and appeared to also call for an uprising in the U.S. during the rally. Critics say he is “suspect,” and “any school associated with him is suspect.” And one expert, Nonie Darwish, a human rights advocate and founder of “Arabs for Israel” said, “He (Bazien) is an anti-Israel activist and he uses academia to further his agenda.” What would a proliferation of like-minded-Bazien-type Muslim colleges across the U.S. likely achieve over the coming years?
Follow-the-dots! Heed the clues! To do otherwise is a recipe for disaster or is evidence of a suicide mission. Which is it? America must wake up before it is too late. Over the past century, Progressive Socialists/Communists infiltrated academia, churches and local and national governments in America. America has changed drastically. Learning from the same playbook, Muslims are duplicating the Progressive wave and are infiltrating academia, churches and local and national governments.
America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, may land in the dustbin of history if her people fail to learn to differentiate between honey bees and killer bees, between Muslim pirates and the rest of Muslim society. President Jefferson didn’t spare the Barbary Pirates. So serious was the matter that he created the U.S. Navy to be the exterminator.
