Caroline Glick has been disinvited to speak at the University of Texas because it might cause students to feel unconformable due to her pro-Israel positions. Is this a joke?
Meanwhile, the Students for Justice in Palestine, a pro-Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood front organization on the campus is celebrating the decision to cancel Caroline's speaking appearance.
Caroline Glick works for the Freedom Center, she runs our Israel Security Project, she is a columnist for the Jerusalem Post, she served in the Israel Defense Forces and is a great friend and defender of both America and Israel.
For the Jew Haters at the University of Texas to succeed in having her speaking appearance cancelled is nothing short of a travesty. Universities such as Texas do this because they think they can get away with it. Well, not on our watch.
We plan to publicize this and shame and embarrass the University for their anti-Jewish cowardly act of telling Caroline that she is not welcome to speak on their campus.
Please help us raise the funds needed to keep FrontPage and our other websites and our writers fighting against the totalitarian nightmare that has become our once great Universities.
Thank you for all of your support,
The UT-Austin Censorship of Caroline Glick Hurts IsraelNovember 16, 2016
By: Daniel Greenfield
In October, J Street at UT-Austin complained that Texans for Israel used a logo featuring Israel's map without marking off the parts that the anti-Israel group feels rightly belong to Islamic terrorists.
Then J Street went a step further. J Street Austin had been campaigning against the Center for Security Policy. When it targeted Caroline Glick, it went after a proud pro-Israel voice, which triggered all its alarm bells. Glick has masterfully argued that Israel needs to consolidate the territory it liberated from occupation by its invading neighbors.
When J Street Austin went after the Center for Security Policy, it cited the widely discredited and criticized Southern Poverty Law Center hate group ranking. And then it led the attack against an invitation for Caroline Glick to speak.
First Israel's map came down. Then Glick's invitation.
Glick had warned about this troubling phenomenon earlier this year.
On a growing number of campuses in the United States, the only Jews who can safely express their views on Israel are those who champion Israel's destruction.That turned out to be the case at UT Austin.
The cancellation of aTexas Hillel has posted a message claiming that it never happened. It is however unfortunately clear that this is exactly how it happens. event featuring conservative Israeli-American journalist Caroline Glick has led pro-Israel students at the University of Texas at Austin to take action against what they say is a liberal Jewish "monopoly" on views permitted to be voiced about the Jewish state, The Algemeinerhas learned.
Hillel continues to sell out pro-Israel students. Meanwhile the constant pressure to push voices critical of Israel while silencing genuinely pro-Israel voices cannot and will not win any progressive hearts. As Hasbara programs go, normalizing hostility to Israel is as effective as trying to stay healthy by slashing your own wrists. Such efforts represent stealth manipulation by the anti-Israel left.
Like Brandeis' censoring of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, it's a victory for terrorists and their collaborators over freedom. While SJP and other anti-Israel hate groups continue to bring vile hateful figures to campuses, pro-Israel organizations are manipulated into thinking that censoring pro-Israel voices will make them more effective. Integrating with J Street does not make a group more pro-Israel, but less so.
And refusing to listen to actual solutions outside the Two-State dead end box hurts Israel.
