The Muslim students at University of California at Irvine have garnered quite an impressive record of Jew-hatred and anti-Semitism over the years.
So much so, that UC Irvine is also affectionately called “Hitler Academy” by some people.
In large part it’s because of their pet mouthpieces. Rabid racists, fervent jihadis, notorious anti-Semites….
And Malik Ali.
This clip shows Amir Abdul Malik Ali (at the third minute mark) calling Jews the oppressors of all peoples, and praising Hamas and Iran:
Note the adoring acolytes.
Here’s Malik Ali spewing about black nationalism and them evil Jews on October 5, 2006:
Please note the chanting of Allahu Akbar by his fans.
So, who the hell is this hate-spewing moron?
He’s a racist convert to Islam from Oakland, California, attached to As-Sabiqun, an American Muslim organization based in Washington DC, and with branches in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Sacramento, in addition to Oakland, where it was founded by another convert, Imam Abdul Alim Musa nearly twenty years ago at the Masjid Al-Islam mosque.
Their primary goal is the overthrow of the American government and its replacement with an Islamic dictatorship. Until that happens, however, they lend support to Jihadism as a nationalist ideal, speak at anti-Jewish events on college campuses (notably UC Irvine, which has been a very welcoming and supportive environment for them), and promote anti-Semitism where-ever they can.
Amongst other things, their speakers have accused Jews of controlling the media and committing the September 11 attacks.
“Israel wants Palestinians to have their own state. It’s beyond that now. No. That’s off the table. One state. Majority rules. Us. The Muslims.”
Mailk Ali has been an applauded speaker at UC Irvine since 2002, brought in by the Muslim Student Union. At every speech he has advocated Islamic revolution, and blamed the Jews for society's ills. One of his key positions is that Muslims must learn how to fight the host society and wage war against unbelievers - whom he seems to define as 'white men' and 'Jews'.

You can see this ponce in full spew here:
Read more about him here:
For some reason he isn't quite as popular at UC Berkeley. Perhaps because his brand of anti-Semitism is too crude and unrefined for the genteel intellectuals of that East Bay town, even though in their hearts they agree with him?
They fight the anti-Israel fight in their own way - by boycotts, multi-page resolutions, and meaningful snubs. Plus sneering letters to the editor, and artistic cocktail parties.
But at UC Irvine, Malik Ali is golden. Even many members of the faculty love him.
You might not agree with me, but I will remain civil and hope you approve this comment if you would like to respond.
I don't necessarily agree with the rhetoric Malik Ali used and I don't agree with everything he says. However, what he said during his recent talk at UCI had a layer of truth to it. What we call "Palestinian terrorism" in the US media is really just resistance to occupation. When a slave kills his master, do you blame the slave or claim the slave believes in some violent religious ideology? No. When I hear stories and see images of Palestinian children in the West Bank having guns pointed to their heads by IDF soldiers I am disgusted. When I hear about the demise of Gaza by the siege from Israel and the US (regardless of how Hamas governs the area) I am appalled. Resistance is not irrational violence; it is self-defense. This is what Malik Ali was saying when he responded to the questions during the recent Q&A. Roz Rothsetein from StandWithUs kept grilling him about supporting Hamas and Hizballah. He said that Israel's terrorism is much worse; that is true. The state, by definition, has the monopoly on the illegitimate use of force. Anything a so-called terrorist group like Hamas does is nothing compared to what states routinely carry out. If anything, it is the zionist-nationalists who believe in violence and immoral actions.
Firing rockets towards Israeli towns is self-defense?
Blowing up buses is self-defense?
The Munich Olympic massacre was self-defense?
Okay, I'll grant you that Hamas bulldozing several dozen Palestinian houses today in Rafah WAS self-defense......
After all, that's a frontline position. With Egypt. Which ruled Gaza fairly brutally till 1967. Egypt, by the way, has one of the biggest secret services ("mukhabarat") in the Middle East. Tasked with whacking people in the middle of the night.
I will remain civil
I appreciate that.
and hope you approve this comment if you would like to respond.
It may take a day or two, but all comments which do not mention names and addresses which should not be named will be approved.
Even uncivil ones.
Blogging (and blog-commenting) is, after all, a form of entertainment.
Is this Ali's mosque?
Masjid Al Islam
8210 MacArthur Boulevard
Oakland, CA 94605-3552
I am one (part-time) teacher at UCI who does not adore Ali. He knows every time he speaks, I will be there to counter him. Last time, he went over the line again.
Keep reporting the events at UCI. We need nation-wide attention to the problem here on our campus.
