Muslim Students Behind String of IU Anti-Jewish Hate Crimes?

By Debbie Schlussel

Who is behind the many hate crimes against Indiana University’s Jewish students and faculty and the attacks on a Bloomington Orthodox Jewish synagogue and the Jewish Hillel building (a gathering for Jewish students)?  Our longtime, wise friends at Advance Indiana believe it’s the growing, highly anti-Semitic Muslim population at Indiana University.  I wouldn’t bet against it.  Would you? On the other hand, maybe it’s just the local Wiccan sisterhood, right? Urinating on Jewish texts and sacred objects is a frequent practice of Muslims. It’s something they regularly did when they controlled Jerusalem, drilling holes into Jewish graves and urinating into those. It’s the same M.O. here. Our friend, Israeli girl, notes the video.  Read the disturbing report:

The Bloomington Herald-Times is reporting Hebrew texts were taken from the shelves at Indiana University’s Wells Library and distributed to eight different bathrooms within the library, where they were urinated on.

This happened Wednesday according to IU’s director of Jewish Studies Program Jeffrey Veidlinger.

That’s the latest in a series of anti-Semitic incidents this week, which includes rocks being thrown through windows at Jewish centers for students – twice at the Chabad House Jewish Student Center and once at the Helene G. Simon Hillel Center.

A rock was also thrown into the staff directory sign of the Jewish Studies program in Goodbody Hall, damage that was reported to local police this morning, Veidlinger said. . . .

Earlier this morning, a second rock was thrown through an upstairs apartment window at the Chabad House at 518 E. Seventh St.

But, hey, even though so many acts of vandalism against Jews in America are committed by Muslims, we would be “Islamophobic” to assume these hate crimes are being perpetrators by the followers of Mohammed. After all, it’s probably just one of your friendly, philo-Semitic, pro-Israel Christians, named Bob Smith, right? A guy named Ahmed or Mohammed or Yasser would never ever do it.

When people say I’m exaggerating when I say stuff like this has echoes of Kristallnacht, my response is that you are an idiot if you bury your head in the sand and ignore the growing anti-Semitic attacks on Jews in America . . . which is concomitant with the growing Muslim population in America.


That Was Then . . .


This Is Now . . .

This country has gotten so backward…I only hear of these anti-semetic attacks here yet if a Moooooslim is looked at cross-eyed, it’s all over the media non-stop.

CAIR is an un-indicted co-conspirator, yet they are still given legitimacy and are like the “Weird” Al Sharpton of Islam because the are often given credibility as hard-charging fighters of all that is good in Islam. Americans don’t want to se thr truth or are cowed into not seeing it. It’s depressing.

    the perpetrator was Mark Zacharias, an IU scholarship coordinator. not a muslim. but none of you read the follow up anyway, especially schlussel.

    Is that your well considered response? Why not something more meaningful, like a belch?

Well Deb, when a mosque was allegedly set on fire in Portland, following the attempted bombing of a Christmas tree celebration, Portland was crawling with FBI men. When a synagogue or other Jewish institution is attacked…nothing. It is so rare for the FBI to investigate an attack on a synagogue, or Chabad House, or anything else Jewish. In fact, the attacks are often dismissed as “mere pranks.” If a Muslim is caught, the government and local media defend him by saying that perpetrator was “mentally disturbed.”

Jews better arm themselves, because the government will not protect them.

    This should apply to everyone (unless you are the Islamic perpetrators). Jews may be the first target but Jews will not but the only target.

    As Debbie recently wrote, the assassination of Rabbi Meir Kahane Z”L, HY”D was ultimately followed by many other attacks, including the failed and then successful attacks on the World Trade Center.

    If the first Bush Administration had given even one tenth of the attention to the assassination or Rabbi Kahane that they gave to the Rodney King case the world would be a lot safer.

    Jon, there is a dearth of Islamophobia in this country, what the media wants people to think. But there is an on-going wave of anti-Semitism, like we haven’t seen in ages and that’s the Number One hate crime in this country, according to the FBI’s own statistics, that Debbie posted on here. What you won’t see is that getting play in the press.

    And Jews had better figure out how to defend themselves. Debbie has already set an example in that regards and the rest of her fellow coreligionists have a lot more to do.

What does it take for the news media to say the word “muslim”? A hundred Jewish students could say that he was muslim and the news would say he was of unknown middle eastern makeup. A thousand could video tape a muslim and they’d say it was a new immigrant from the asian or african continent.

Fred on December 2, 2010 at 1:01 pm

Question where the hell is the “Anti-Defamation League”? Why haven’t this worthless lobbying organization come out and condemn these attacks agaisnt jewish students at Indiana University. I think the ADL haven’t condemn these attacks is because the perpatrators are “muslims”! If the perpatrators had been white or a part of a right wing organization, then the useless ADL will immediately come out and condemn the attacks (rightly so). And where the hell is the left wing media on this story? Why haven’t these fellow travelling leftist in the media didn’t report this story out of Bloomington, IN? As I’ve said before, it’s because the perpatrators are “muslims” who attacked those jewish students on campus! I know we all see the hypocracy from the ADL, CAIR, left wing media, etc., that’s why their all worthless.

DS:”On the other hand, maybe it’s just the local Wiccan sisterhood, right?”

Or how about White Christians like Neo-Nazis or the KKK? Aren’t they the traditional enemies of Jews in America? This is Indiana after all!

NB on December 2, 2010 at 1:30 pm

    Yeah, they hang out at university libraries, right? lol

    Worry01 on December 2, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Jewish people have to fight back. Learn self defense, arm yourselves. The Govt. (under Obama and Holder) will not protect you as they are part of the problem. Look at the black panther case that they would not prosecute. DO YOU REALIZE WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY?

Perry on December 2, 2010 at 2:00 pm

Sean R asks, “where the hell is the Anti-Defamation League?” They might send out a pro forma press release, but if Muslims are involved, they don’t want to be. A recent study was done of the last 15 years or so of ADL reports. Roughly 42% dealt with anti-Semitism from Christian sources. The percentage that dealt with anti-Semitism from Arab or Muslim sources: about 2%.

Political correctness regarding Muslim anti-Semitism is widespread among Jewish institutions. One could as well go down to the Holocaust Museum in Washington. There’s virtually nothing about Arab support for the Nazis, the Mufti’s collaboration in the Holocaust, or present day anti-Semitism in today’s Arab and Muslim worlds.

Maryland man gets year in jail for “eradicate Islam” email

and yet if you or I dare say what MUSLIMS say to us EVERY DAY—-including death threats on DEbbie and more of us
who gets prosecuted (persecuted)

Isahiah62 on December 2, 2010 at 3:15 pm

Anyone willing to bet if Islam were the victim that this would be national news?

Rocky on December 2, 2010 at 3:29 pm

    I believe the RUMOR of a koran put into a toilet led to mass riots around the world by the death cultists. Truly sick people out there.

On a related off-topic note one of the winners of the World Cup tournament a decade from now is… Qatar!

Yawn – and this is what Obama send Holder and Clinton to Switzerland to get? Yup, soccer ain’t for Dhimmis anymore!

NormanF on December 2, 2010 at 3:43 pm

OK, most people here get the hypocrisy of this crap, but why doesn’t the rest of the world?

One guy burns a copy of the Koran and it makes major news and the whole damn country is condemning it, not even realizing what the guy was doing was standing up to Sharia law. Yep, because if this guy was in Iran he would be sentenced to death.

And now look at what these hypocrites get away with doing to sacred Jewish texts. Would this guy be put to death if he did this in Israel? No, because Jews are civilized people.

Muslims have figured out (it would not be difficult) that they can get away with anything in this country. In this sense, as Mark Steyn has pointed out, they have rather thoroughly assimilated. Even if caught red-handed the media and law-enforcement agencies at all levels will cover for them. They will get reduced sentences if any punishment at all. The only exception is a high-profile murder, but even then they will not face the death penalty, ever, and it is only a matter of time before they are pardoned. This is not a recipe for civil peace. Arm yourselves, indeed. But be aware if you kill a muslim in self-defense, you will face serious legal trouble. If found innocent, nobody will protect you or your family. You will be on your own.

I attended IU in the 70’s and it was a hotbed of anti-semitism then. The KKK was very big in Martinsville (about 20 miles north of Bton)and I came across many anti-semites. The reform temple was vandalized too. It was also during the Iran hostage crisis and even then there were lots of Muslims. At Arizona State, the Muslim group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP–not Sarah Jessica Parker)has become very vocal.They have an insider writing venomous weekly editorials at the State Press.He is the son of a local imam who is one of the “unindicted co-conspirators”. Similar vandalism may well happen at ASU and many other schools. Be alert!

Debbi from AZ on December 2, 2010 at 10:45 pm

Its no longer the kind of education I received back in the day. Yup, anti-Semitism is today is like a extra-curricular activity on campus. And you can bet that its led and instigated by Muslims!

Jessie on December 3, 2010 at 3:33 pm

I go to IU right now, and so far the police say that witnesses saw a white man doing some of these acts. Thats not to say that muslims arnt involved, but honestly I am jewish, and have never had any problems with Muslims, even when Israel did operation cast lead, which i supported. I personally dont think it was muslims. There are a lot (and i mean a lot) of dipshit white red-neck folk out here who have never met a jew before, and think they are the devil.

DK IU on December 3, 2010 at 10:22 pm

So sorry to hear this happen in my home state, Deb,

I live in Columbus (about 45 minutes east of Bloomington), and knew there are a few Muslims here, but it’s sad to hear it happen so close to home!

Of course in the spirit of our President who likes to appologize for everything (even if it isn’t our fault) please forgive the good people of the Hoosier state who do not like these type of activites going on.


Jeremy on December 5, 2010 at 11:03 pm

A suspect has been apprehended, and–sorry to disappoint you Debbie–he’s a fundamentalist Christian. Too bad. Apparently he was trying to stoke up tension between Muslims and Jews. Just like you Debbie.

Mister Majestyk on December 15, 2010 at 9:13 am

mark zacharias is also known for his anti islamic rhetoric. he has published an editorial in the local paper stating that fire bombing against the islamic center of bloomington was done by muslims to gain sympathy. he should be investigated for that attack as well.

muslimhere on December 26, 2010 at 4:52 pm

The urinated on books will give DNA evidence but they probably won’t look. This is typical activity in muslim dominated areas. They like to burn churchs and synagogues preferably with the congregants inside.
What “religion” tells it’s congregants to lie to non-believers and make believe you are their friend but never be their friend because that would be against the religion? What “religion” says to execute fall aways? What “religion” has a pedophile as it’s main prophet? The “religion of piece” isalm.
