Daniel Pearl's Father Fearful Of Anti-Semitism On Campus
It's bad enough that the Pearl family had to live through the savage beheading of their son by alQaeda. Mr Pearl now faces growing anti-Semitism at UCLA's Westwood campus.
LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Jewish students and faculty at California universities fear for their safety on campus because of threats aimed at them over the Middle East conflict, the father of a slain Wall Street Journal reporter said Friday. Judea Pearl, whose son, Daniel Pearl, was kidnapped and killed by al Qaeda extremists[terrorists...ed] while on assignment in Pakistan in 2002, told reporters at a news conference that anti-Semitic e-mail and verbal threats have escalated since Israel's three-week invasion of Gaza in January. "I received hate messages (after a recent panel on "Human Rights and Gaza") from someone at UCLA who did not identify himself and said, 'I saw you in Ackerman Union and I know where your office is and I'm going to beat the (expletive) out of you,'" said Pearl, who teaches computer science on UCLA's Westwood campus. "I handed it to the campus police, and they did not do anything."Mr Pearl has nothing to do with "Human Rights and Gaza", Hamas does. Their followers/sympathizers hate Jews. Why the campus police did nothing says a lot about the school. Appease the Hamas sympathizers and to hell with the Jews. h/t Robert Spencer Related: Anti-Semite Joseph Cohen aka Yousef al Khattab posts Daniel Pearl Parody on YouTube
