Bahar Davary, an Iranian-American associate-professor at University of San Diego, has engineered a “silent” protest against anti-Islam sentiment. . . or something. It’s confusing, and isn’t that convenient? It began in her “Introduction to Islam” class. Davary, and if you believe what she said, her students, came up with the yellow star patch, like the Yellow Star of David, with the word “Jude” forced on the Jews during World War II. The difference is the word “Muslim” and a crescent moon replaces “Jude.” Davary is quoted saying she understands the symbol “carries a lot of weight,” but the students wanted to “start a campus conversation about the anti-Muslim rhetoric rising all around us.” So as you read, keep in mind, that’s her first reason for this “protest,” just the first.
If “rhetoric” had only been “rhetoric,” six million Jews would still be alive today. Millions, maybe Billions of Muslims would have picked up Hitler’s mantle and still be trying to kill them today. Remember, Iran claims there was no holocaust. What would Associate-Professor Bahar Davary say about that? Had there only been rhetoric there would be no memory of a Yellow Star of David. While about 100 staff and students have been seen wearing the yellow star of Muslim, reportedly on campus only, Jews wore the symbol under penalty of death, and then most died anyway. As you’ll see below, she seems to say that the yellow star of Muslim is worn in “sympathy” for Jews. Or maybe I’ve misunderstood.
Think about an Iranian American professor wearing a symbol, maybe the American flag, or the U.S. Constitution, and encouraging her students to do the same. Bring awareness to homosexuals in Iran –– throwing them off of buildings, hanging them in the city square, probably raping them first. What if she encouraged her students to show their awareness of the hate that led Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, both living the American dream –– a hate born because those he worked with are, and were, “infidels.” I don’t know if Davary follows Islam, but there’s a fair chance she doesn’t suffer under that burden –– the burden of being an infidel. What if she encouraged her students and fellow staff to bring awareness to Muslim genital mutilation, or marrying daughters, many of a very young age, to men they don’t know and do not want to marry. What if she spoke long, and passionately about girls not being allowed to go to school. “The goal,” Davary said, was to raise awareness of marking any group of people as “the other,” which is exactly what radical Islam does. Everyone but a Muslim is the “other.” Then they pick and choose and kill us. What does Davary teach about ISIS and how often does she teach it? How ardently does she teach it? How much time has she spent teaching her students that there is evil in radical Islam, and not only is there a lot of evil, there are a lot of radicals. Her students are in danger like the rest of us. Does she teach that danger?
We realize that it is a stark symbol that carries a lot of weight and meaning today not only for Jews but for humanity,” Davary said. “That is as it should be, if we are to learn anything from our collective history. The yellow Star of David with the word Muslim written on it is a symbol that my students and I wear with utmost respect for the memory of the Jewish lives lost.”
She and her students wore the yellow star “in sympathy with those who lived through the tragedy and survived, and those who still bear the painful memory.”
So, the yellow star of Muslim is intended to show “sympathy” for those who lived through the holocaust? Can that be true? I don’t believe it. I mulled around the possibility that she was referring to those survivors of the San Bernardino attack, but no, she clearly says “the memory of the Jewish lives lost.”
I’ve written about the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, several times. He had close ties to Hitler and to Britain, and because of his influence with the British, the new nation of Israel lost most of their land to Jordan, and nomadic Muslims. Read a few of my posts about the Mufti here, here, here, here, here, here, and ESPECIALLY HERE.
She’s getting her fifteen minutes of fame, but for the rest of us, it piles on.
