amina, a law student at George Washington University and speaker for the dissident project, is joining us today. Tamina, thank you for being on the program.
As a student at George Washington University, you must be aware of the privilege it is to attend a university named after our first President, George Washington. However, it is disheartening to witness the propagation of propaganda among college students today. No Jewish student should feel unsafe on a campus bearing the name of George Washington.
Coming from a background where I have escaped a government that supports acts of violence, it is deeply disturbing to see American college students not only supporting but also engaging in anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence against their fellow students. They even justify the killing of families in Israel.
This behavior is unacceptable, although not surprising, given the endorsement and support these ideas have received within academia over the past decade. Footage from George Washington University, showing phrases like “glory to our moders,” reflects the talking points used by those promoting these harmful ideologies. It is essential to delve deeper into what these professors are doing, as concerned parents watch their children transform from individuals who once loved everyone into individuals who harbor hatred towards Jews. Similar messages have been endorsed by professors at renowned institutions like Yale and Harvard. Currently, students lack the understanding of who the true players are in this conflict. It is not Israel versus Palestine; it is a battle of good versus evil.
Hamas is a terrorist organization responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent civilians, supported by countries like the Islamic Republic of Iran. They have no regard for the liberal values we hold dear in this country.
Unfortunately, academia has taught students to hate these Western values, therefore sympathizing with extremist groups like Hamas. This is not surprising, as professors and academia promote and endorse such rhetoric. I encourage everyone to read my full opinion piece on this topic, which can be found on foxnews.com. Thank you for having me on the show and allowing me to discuss these important issues early in the morning..
