Professors on Mid-East Turmoil: Blame America, Israel, and Free Speech

Cinnamon Stillwell compiles a nauseating list of some of the “luminaries” of campus Middle East studies “experts” thoughts on the recent violence in the region.

As self-styled supporters of “academic freedom,” are they rushing to defend First Amendment rights instead of kowtowing to Muslim religious sensibilities? Are they denouncing the prospect of self-censorship rather than pushing YouTube to pull the “offending” video by claiming that it constitutes “hate speech?” Are they standing up for religious freedom instead of encouraging Americans to adhere to Sharia law-driven prohibitions on blasphemy? Are they putting aside their anti-Western biases and laying blame where it belongs instead of on America and Israel?

    The blame for the Middle East problems is due to tyrants forcing the fraud of Islam into the middle east population and denying people of Free Speech!

    I agree with the above remarks, they are after all written in the bible. Never the less we must fight for the rights of the Jewish people of Israel, they have a God given right to live in peace.

    Yes. All of your comments (Jeb thru Kendra) are most truthful in one aspect or another. I think you all feel like most Americans who know that there is 1 true God and that was once the beloved God of the United States. You’re absolutely right- we should never reject OUR OWN culture, OUR God or OUR OWN rights given “specially” to us by OUR God!

    THE U.S AND ISRAEL REMAIN THE SCAPE GOATS FOR THE EVIL THAT IS FUELED BY THE MUSLIM EXTREMISTS. THE EVIL ONES THRIVE ON PROPAGANDA. GOD WILL INTERVENE AS PROMISED IN SCRIPTURE AND PROTECT ISRAEL.

    It is still depressing when we are constantly reminded that even supposed enlightened academics are overcome by human nature and always will be. They cling to their tiny, little minds as much as we uneducated people do, dont they. More than ever we need to be reminded ALWAYS to adopt skepticism toward news media, entertainment media and political correctness. God has promised his Spirit will give us this discernment.

    I woke up this morning reflecting on what Jesus said about how we should treat those who speak all manner of evil things about us. He said to bless them and pray for them. It reveals how hypocritical these attacks are. I was recently reading about muslims burning the bible and breaking crosses. How sad and may the Lord help them. They cannot see how wrong they are. I do not feel compelled to be violent to anyone who does these things. For I know it is all in the hands of my loving heavenly Father. I wish they knew that. Because they do not see, their sins remain.

    The fault is written in the Scriptures. The Jews are and will always be hated by the muslims and most of the rest of the world.

    What remains unfathomable in America, is the extremist left to continue to criticize Christianity and Judaism for the worlds problems and like President Obama allow Islam a free pass.

      Jeb, I find it odd that you wish to link the President with a false accusation while over looking the fact that Mormons believe Jesus is the spirit brother of Satan.
