A Berkeley Prof’s ‘Intifada Against America by Jonathan Calt Harris

A Catholic priest gave pronouncements “in the name of Allah.” Signs were sold proclaiming “Support Armed Resistence [sic] in Iraq and Everywhere,” next to tomes of Marx, Trotsky and Che Guevara. A smiling student marched carried a sign saying “Long Live Fallujah,” and another held a Bush effigy aloft on a noose. Such was the scene at the latest anti-war rally that occurred April 10 in San Francisco, where Hatem Bazian, a senior lecturer in Islamic studies at Berkeley called for an “intifada” in America.

As reported by LittleGreenFootballs.com, and viewable here Bazian declared to the cheering crowd, “we’re sitting here and watching the world pass by, people being bombed, and it’s about time that we have an intifada in this country that change[s] fundamentally the political dynamics in here.” The Berkeley-trained Ph.D. concluded his call to violence with a promise of more to come: “They’re gonna say, ‘some Palestinian being too radical’ — well, you haven’t seen radicalism yet!”

Bazian’s rhetoric at the April 10th anti-war rally is therefore highly typical of his career. Why are California taxpayers paying for this extremist’s salary? Why is the University of California implicitly endorsing his venom by continuing to employ him?
