Campus Watch West Coast representative Cinnamon Stillwell was interviewed by Global Patriot Radio on September 14 to discuss the campaign she is spearheading to compel San Francisco State University (SFSU) to end its memorandum of understanding (MOU) with terrorism-promoting An-Najah University in the West Bank. In a wide-ranging discussion, she also talked about her experiences with anti-Semitism as an SFSU student, the Islamist infiltration of higher education, how Middle East studies academics adversely influence K-12 education, and the University of California, Berkeley's Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project. Here is an excerpt from the interview:
In 2014, I discovered rumors that San Francisco State was forming a partnership, what's called a Memorandum of Understanding or an MOU, with An-Najah University, which is in the West Bank in Nablus, and I was quite disturbed by this. This is a university that Hamas has described as "a greenhouse for martyrs" and that has been well-known for a number of years. Certain scholars, like Matthew Levitt at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, have written quite a bit about An-Najah terrorism and has noted that it's known for the terrorist recruitment, indoctrination, and radicalization of students. We have written a series of articles and we started, at the same time, sending inquiries to the San Francisco State president Leslie Wong asking him to confirm this MOU and we were met with deafening silence. They just refused to respond to our inquiries over the course of many months.
