O’Keefe video shows support for ISIS, Hamas, and Hezb’allah
By Rick Moran, American Thinker
Today, O’Keefe released a video that’s absolutely shocking. It shows students, administrators, and teachers all eager and willing to sign a petition to financially support the terrorist groups ISIS, Hamas, and Hezb’allah.
In a news release, Project Veritas explains:
Today’s video reveals a multitude of professors, administrations, and students at numerous California state universities signing a petition pledging financial support to ISIS, Hamas and Hezbollah. Professor Bruce Burnam of California State University, Northridge had no problem signing the petition pledging economic support to ISIS, Hamas, and Hezbollah. Nor did, Jon Masciana, Director of Admissions at the Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine who gladly signed the pro-terror petition.
“I was encouraged by the fact that many of the people we approached refused to sign our faux petition, however, I was disturbed by the amount of professors, administrators, and students across California who had no ethical qualms whatsoever about supporting ISIS, Hamas, and Hezbollah,” said Project Veritas President James O’Keefe. “There were far too many people who were far too willing to support these recognized terrorist organizations. It is truly frightening just how many supporters these organizations have on our college campuses and the affect it is having on our nation’s youth.”
Last week, O’Keefe released a video showing several high-level officials and a professor at Barry University sanctioning a club with the stated purpose of sending material aid to ISIS. The Project Veritas investigative journalist, an honors student, was subsequently unjustly suspended. And earlier this month, O’Keefe released a video showing a dean at Cornell University advising a Project Veritas investigative journalist on how to start and fund a pro-ISIS club on campus.
O’Keefe calls the petition drive a “huge success.” But if you watch the video carefully, I’m not sure how many of the people we saw signing the petition actually understood that they would be asked to give money to terrorists.
But this is a small point. The fact that there were dozens of people willing to sign a petition that was in support of advancing “economic opportunity” for members of terrorist outfits is a damning indictment of the political correctness and hostility to Israel and the West that abounds on college campuses across the country.
