House chairman Brad Sherman calls on UC Irvine to throw out Muslim Student Union for raising money for Gaza

By Philip Weiss – December 11, 2009

Your Israel lobby at work. Brad Sherman is a liberal Democratic congressman from California and populist on Wall Street issues. He is also chairman of a House subcommittee on terrorism. With the applause (and likely the urging) of the Zionist Organization of America, he has sent out three letters to federal officials, urging investigations directed at Viva Palestina, the George Galloway group that is devoted to bringing aid to besieged people of Gaza– for allegedly supporting a terrorist organization, Hamas. The letters are to the IRS, to the Justice Department, and to Hillary Clinton.

In a fourth letter, written last week to the chancellor of the University of California at Irvine, Sherman accuses the Muslim Student Union at UC Irvine of soliciting funds for a terrorist organization because it hosted Galloway last May. Once you have determined these facts in your internal investigation, Sherman says, you should bar the Muslim Student Union from the campus.

The ZOA, a right-wing pro-settlers group, says that it brought the Galloway event to Sherman’s attention earlier this fall and pressed for an investigation. Here, the Muslim Student Union at Irvine describes how it has been harassed by the ZOA:

The truth of the matter is that ZOA has been attempting to defame, censor and essentially eradicate the MSU for years now. This is only the most recent attempt to silence the MSU and restrict its constitutional right to freedom of speech, religion and association. Although this is not the first time the organization has made such claims against the MSU, the complaints continue to receive attention. This is surprising, considering all previous claims the organization made against MSU have been proven to be groundless. In 2004, ZOA claimed that the green stoles MSU members wear during graduation were a symbol of support for Hamas.

  3. I’m sorry but, looking at this photo: what strange people. What’s funny is that 2000yrs ago the Romans expressed the same thing. Some things never change.

  4. Americans are left to wonder – is Brad Sherman being blackmailed, or is he being bribed, or is he simply evil in his heart?

  5. BS is a poor excuse for a human being; then again he has a lot of company in the District of Criminals! He is evil because he has allowed himself to be used by the Zionists. There should be a litmus test for all of those in Congress on where their loyalty lies.

    America needs to rid itself of the ADL, ACLU, SPLC, ZOA, AIPAC,B’nai B’rith or anything Pro Zionist.

    There is an amazing story in Ha’aretz today on the “pro-Israel”

    litmus test that determines who is permitted to serve in the United States government. Here’s the sort of lede you’re not likely to read in the New York Times or Washington Post: Every appointee to the American government must endure a thorough background check by the American Jewish community.

  7. How many more American young men and women are going to be sent to die and be maimed fighting Israel’s wars for them Brad Sherman? Why not go do it yourself with your zionist friends? Of course he is being paid just like 90% of all American congresscritters and senators and just think of it now you will have two criminal families joining in Holy matrimony Jews+whatever the clintons are? soon when Chelsea marries her Jewish boyfriend and joins the Zionist clan Hilory will be busy changing and enhancing American foreign policy – Americans will probably all have to wear blue stripes as probably the stars on our flag will become stars of david. Time you Americans woke up.

  10. Take a good look. These are the people who truly rule america. This is the mindset which murders without guilt, and celebrates the death by immolation of babies and little children (Gaza). When you see this man in the clown outfit, don’t say you couldn’t see it coming.
