Jews are fair game now. This is exactly what Jewish students and academics experienced in Nazi Germany.

For years, the growing Jew hatred on college campuses was ignored or excused. Before my colleagues and I were banned, we experienced vicious, violent hatred. No one stood with us. Or took action. What did they think was going. to happen?

Months after the Education and Workforce Committee hearing that contributed to the resignation of top school presidents, Jewish students say the hatred continues unchecked

By:Jordana Horn, Times of Israel, March 1, 2024:

NEW YORK — The House of Representatives’ Education and the Workforce Committee held a bipartisan roundtable Thursday with Jewish students from nine American universities to hear testimony about their experiences with antisemitism on campus.

Testimony given before the Education and Workforce Committee’s last hearing in December led to the resignations of Harvard University president Claudine Gay and University of Pennsylvania president Liz Magill.

“These students are dealing with antisemitism at their respective universities on a daily basis. Their courage to speak out and share their stories will give the American people a new look at what is truly happening on college campuses around the country,” Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) said before the roundtable in a statement. “This roundtable will help inform the committee’s next steps in the antisemitism investigation as it continues to hold postsecondary education accountable for rampant antisemitism.”

  1. “Former Iranian government official and current Princeton University academic Seyed Hossein Mousavian is facing a U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce investigation for allegedly advancing the interests of the Islamic Republic of Iran in America.

    Mousavian was Iranian Ambassador to Germany from 1990 to 1997, and during his tenure, in 1992, Iranian and Hizbullah operatives assassinated Kurdish dissidents in a Mafia-style attack at the Mykonos restaurant in Berlin.

    According to an archived 1997 article from the Berlin newspaper Der Tagesspiegel (see below), Abolghasem Mesbahi, a former Iranian intelligence official, told a Berlin court during the Mykonos trial: “Mousavian participated in most of the [Iranian regime’s] crimes that took place in Europe.”

    Mousavian has served in a number of senior posts within the Iranian government, including as head of the Foreign Relations Committee of Iran’s National Security Council (1997-2005). He played a key role in the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the world powers, and was Iran’s spokesman for the 2003-2005 nuclear talks on Iran’s desire to build a nuclear program. He was also foreign policy advisor to the secretary of the Supreme National Security Council (2005-2007)….”

  2. What’s a former big wig in the Iranian regime with a lot of blood on his hands doing teaching at an American University. For that matter, why was he allowed in. They don’t allow in Nazi war criminals if they know about their past.

    Former Iranian government official and current Princeton University academic Seyed Hossein Mousavian is facing a U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce investigation for allegedly advancing the interests of the Islamic Republic of Iran in America.

    Mousavian was Iranian Ambassador to Germany from 1990 to 1997, and during his tenure, in 1992, Iranian and Hizbullah operatives assassinated Kurdish dissidents in a Mafia-style attack at the Mykonos restaurant in Berlin.

    According to an archived 1997 article from the Berlin newspaper Der Tagesspiegel (see below), Abolghasem Mesbahi, a former Iranian intelligence official, told a Berlin court during the Mykonos trial: “Mousavian participated in most of the [Iranian regime’s] crimes that took place in Europe.”

    Mousavian has served in a number of senior posts within the Iranian government, including as head of the Foreign Relations Committee of Iran’s National Security Council (1997-2005). He played a key role in the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the world powers, and was Iran’s spokesman for the 2003-2005 nuclear talks on Iran’s desire to build a nuclear program. He was also foreign policy advisor to the secretary of the Supreme National Security Council (2005-2007).

    In 2005, Mousavian, who at that time still headed the Foreign Affairs Committee of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council but was no longer part of the Iranian nuclear negotiating team, told the Islamic Republic News Agency: “In the past two years, during which I have participated in the Iran-E.U. negotiations, it has been clear to me that E.U. acceptance of [our right to uranium] enrichment would necessitate a framework that would allay both parties’ concerns. The framework has been established during the past two years of negotiations, and includes bilateral, regional and international issues.” (see MEMRI Special Dispatch No. 940, Senior Iranian Official: Europe Will Recognize Iran’s Right to a Limited Nuclear Fuel Cycle; Iran to Start Operations at Isfahan Uranium Conversion Facility, July 22, 2005. Uranium enrichment is a precondition for the construction of a nuclear weapon.

    Mousavian was the General Director of Foreign Ministry for West Europe (1987-1990), editor-in-chief of the Iranian pro-regime English-language Tehran Times newspaper (1980-1990), and Chief of Parliament Administration (1984-1986). He was also a member of the editorial board of the Iranian pro-regime Resalat daily.

    He is currently a Middle East Security and Nuclear Policy Specialist at the Program on Science and Global Security at Princeton University; he was hired by Princeton in 2009. In 2020, he attended the funeral in Iran of IRGC Qods Force commander Qassem Soleimani, a U.S.-designated terrorist. Soleimani was killed in a U.S. airstrike January 3, 2020 in Iraq, due to his role in the murder of over 600 U.S. military personnel and in the planning of terror attacks on U.S. interests.

    In a January 9, 2022 interview on Iran’s Ofogh TV, Mousavian said that a few days after Iran struck the Ain Al-Assad Airbase in Iraq, he had been told that the wife of Brian Hook, who was the U.S. Special Representative for Iran, “could not sleep” because she feared that her husband would be killed in retribution for his part in Soleimani’s killing (view his statements in this MEMRI TV clip)

    In 1997 Interview With The German Taz Daily, Mousavian Expressed Support For Hamas And Hizbullah

    Below is the transcript of a December 16, 1997 interview with Mousavian when he was Iranian Ambassador to Germany, in the German daily Taz, under the headline “The Critical Dialogue is Dead.” It was conducted following his return from Tehran after the Berlin Supreme Court convicted Iranian and Hizbullah operatives in the 1992 Mykonos restaurant killings of Kurdish dissidents in Berlin.

    The court had sentenced Iranian intelligence operative Kazam Darabi to life imprisonment, with Iranian secret service chief Ali Fallahian[1] implicated in the verdict as the principle perpetrator of the killings. As a result, all EU member states except Greece recalled their ambassadors from Tehran.

    In the interview, Mousavian referred to the court conviction as “nonsense,” declared Iran’s support for Hamas “in its struggle,” and said: “We support Hizbullah morally.”‘

  3. Rapidly moving into new situation in Britain

    And that typical of situation world wide.

    George Galloway must be exposed and destroyed.

    How to do that? Clear in interview with Sky News how that will be done.

    By historical accuracy. Shoe with historical truths lies of Galloway claiming OCCUPATION.

    And Galloway essentially a Stalinist.

    I can do this coz I’m a Trotskyist

    My ideology. I’m not afraid of that word. Becoming valid once more.
