Students for Academic Freedom has placed an advertisement in Ohio State University’s student newspaper, protesting the terror-enabling conference being held this weekend at OSU:A Pro-Terrorist Rally at Ohio State?
On November 7-9, Ohio State University is planning to host the Third National Conference On Palestine Solidarity.
The second conference held at the University of Michigan last year featured Sami al-Arian as its honored keynote speaker. Al-Arian is one of three founding heads of Palestinian Islamic Jihad – a terrorist organization that is responsible for the suicide bombings of 99 innocent, men women and children, including several Americans. Al-Arian, who is a hero to the organizers of the Ohio State conference, cannot attend this year because he has been indicted and arrested for his crimes and is in federal lockdown.
Fadi Kiblawi, head of Students Allied for Freedom and Equality (SAFE), the sponsor of the Michigan Conference declared in a Michigan student publication his desire “to strap a bomb to one’s chest and kill . . . . The enemy is not just overseas, the enemy is also amongst us.”
The opening panel discussion at this conference is titled “Towards A Global Intifada.”
