But for the few MSA members, some Arabs and radical leftists in the audience who refused to stand for the pledge of allegiance when guest host Gen. Gordon Cucullu asked the audience to do so, the Walid Shoebat, Kamal Saleem speaking event at WMU was met with enthusiasm by a capacity audience of 1,300 people who gave both men a standing ovation at the event's conclusion.
Just one week earlier, the MSA had tried to procure 150 seats in the center of the auditorium to disrupt the event en masse. A rule only allowing the purchase of no more than four seats together prevented this, as well as a warning handed to every member adivsing that any deliberate disruptions would be met with swift legal action. The simple truth is, that when speakers like Shoebat and Saleem are allowed to speak without being shouted down as is done in the dictatorships of the Middle East under controlled governments, the sloganeering and lies of the pro-jihadis on campus wither away.
The audience was a mixture of Conservative Christians, reform Jews, military personnel
police personnel and myriad students from WMU includng students from the MSA and the Arab Students Association that spent the previous week tearing down posters advertising the event on campus at every turn. Even the administration got the landscapers and campus police involved in tearing down the posters that were allegedly 2" too big. At WMU it seems it's ok for the MSA to invite anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers like William Baker, a Neo-Nazi , or even Siraj Wahhaj, a known conspirator in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and unindicted conpsirator in the Holy Land Hamas funding trial to speak, even allowing oversized posters to be plastered all over campus, but bring tow anti-terrorism speakers to campus and 2" cannot be tolerated even for five days before the event. Once the producers absorbed the loss of $1,000 for the original posters and printed another $500 in the new size, the administration then would only allow 45 on the entire campus of the 500 they knew in advance would be printed. Despite such odds, the event drew nearly a full house in the campus's Miller Auditorium even thought it was rainign cats and dogs that night and everyone was delayed 45 minutes as metal detectors searched for bombs at the entry doors.
The message was the same as at previous Shoebat events: to fight terrorismit is necessary to recognize what fundamentalist Islam is teaching about Jew hatred and the glories of martyrdom. Our campuses are being used as indoctrination centers to promote jihad and terrorism through the MSA and Arab gorups funded by the Middle East. Kamal Saleem summed it up best when he said, "I want to see Muslims running through the streets of America holding up the American flag and shouting Allah bless America!" He urged Muslim-Americans to love this country and not work in favor of its enemies to try and destroy it. It was a message that needs to be heard on every campus and had the entire audience enraptured.
