Brief Note: Stillwell and San Francisco State

Michael L.

My neighbor across the Bay in San Francisco, and fellow San Francisco State University alumnus, Cinnamon Stillwell, has a recent piece in the Independent Journal Review entitled, "Why Is a San Francisco University Secretly Partnering with an Arab College that Promotes Jihad?"

Yes, well, I have been wondering about that myself.

This is just a brief note, although I am considering writing more on this topic for my usual Sunday contribution over at the Elder's place and elsewhere.

Stillwell notes:
SFSU signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with An-Najah University of Hebron in 2014 at the behest of Rabab Abdulhadi, director of SFSU’s Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas Initiative (AMED) and founding member of the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel.
An-Najah "University" is not exactly a friendly place for Jewish people and I wrote about this story in April of last year in a piece entitled, "San Francisco State Partners with Violently Anti-Jewish Arab University."

Given the fact that SFSU President Wong has praised the General Union of Palestine Students (GUPS) as representing the finest values of the university and since those same students call for "intifada" - which is nothing less than a call for the murder of Jewish people - and recently chased the mayor of Jerusalem off of their campus, it may be time to revisit this story.
