“I didn’t say ‘slaughter the Jews,’ I just made reference to something that means ‘slaughter the Jews.'” What?
Noor Rashid, when Israeli Deputy Foregin Minister Danny Ayalon spoke at Oxford last week, yelled “Khaybar ya Yahood.” According to an article in the Jerusalem Post, he was simply making mention of an historical event. What is this historical event you may ask? Good question; the Battle of Khaybar of 629 C.E. What happened in this battle? Mohammed and his followers slaughtered a tribe of Jews, which he had previously expelled from Medina. So, if Rashid is calling for another Khaybar, I fail to see in what ways he isn’t calling for a slaughter of the Jews.
This is yet another example of universities serving as the bastions for freedom, democracy, and intellectual thought… right?
