UTC Students Urge Pro Hamas Resolution

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) has joined the ranks of institutions that are filled with activists instead of students’ worthy of taxpayer funding.  In particular the Student Government Association (SGA) members that are embracing the ideology of the Muslim Student Organization (MSA). While the students may not view this group as the dangerous, terror linked group it is, perhaps the parents and taxpayers will.

Following what seems to be an antisemitic trend on college campuses, many members of the SGA have voted for a resolution that will support two Gazan students financially due to the situation in their home country, and how unfair it is that all colleges in Gaza have been destroyed, yet the many in Israel have not.

Another disturbing aspect of this resolution is that is comes from members of the Muslim Student Association, the Muslim Brotherhoods second largest front group in the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood has been designated a terrorist organization in countries across the Middle East.

In 2008 in Dallas Texas evidence was presented to a court during a trial against the Holy Land Foundation, which was funding Hamas. That evidence included a manifesto titled “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America”.  The Muslim Student Association is listed as the number 2 group that is “A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends [Imagine if t they all march according to one plan!!!]”

The MSA uses this mission statement “The Muslim Students Association at UTC is a faith-based organization that seeks to unite our community and create an atmosphere of knowledge and understanding through the use of education”.

 The MSA was founded in 1963 by international students with the goal of “spreading Islam in North America”. Otherwise known as dawah, or the proselytizing of Islam.

The mere fact our American institutions have embraced and allowed a terror linked organization to flourish on their campuses is one danger, but the continued acceptance of anti-Israel rhetoric by the MSA and others such as Students for Justice in Palestine is a loaded powder keg which needs to be extinguished.

The following is the resolution presented to the Chancellor of UTC, Steven R. Angle. At this time, Chancellor Angle has not signed this resolution.

It’s sad to hear how ignorant many of today’s college students are, and their inability to be articulate regarding a controversial topic. Rather its apparent they only use the example of Gaza’s colleges being ruined, but Israel’s are not .Thanks to those that did understand the gravity of the subject, and objected to the resolution. 

College campuses across America have become home to blatant anti- Israel sentiment, and pro Hamas agenda. Funding for Gazan students that are in the United States should not be given a status designation, while other students have the same need. Call Chancellor Steven Angle  (423-425-4141) and advise him to not sign this resolution, which will undoubtedly cause more division among students, and ultimately Americans. 

Coming up:  Strange bedfellows..The Democratic Socialists of America student group and the Muslim Student Association.
