How Many of You Knew Al Queda’s Co-founder Attended the University of Arizona?

In his Front Page article “The Muslim Student Association and the Boston Terrorist Connection,” Daniel Greenfield chronicles the radical role of Muslim Student Associations on America’s tax-funded public university campuses. He also tells us the University of Arizona, in Tucson, helped educate the co-founder of Al Qaeda, definitely not good billboard advertising fodder for UA. And student clubs like the MSAs are funded by your tax dollars.

Al-Awlaki wasn’t even the highest ranking Al Qaeda leader to have been an MSA president.  That honor went to Wa’el Hamza Julaidan, a co-founder of Al Qaeda and MSA president at the University of Arizona. The highest profile MSA president to  have gone down was MSA national President Abdurahman Alamoudi, currently serving  out a 23-year prison sentence.

Both the national and the local Muslim Students Association groups had long histories of being involved in terrorism,  of raising money for terrorists and of promoting terrorism. Nor was the  Dartmouth MSA a moderate oasis in a sea of radicalism. Not only were the  Dartmouth MSA officers taking sides in the religious war consuming Syria, but  Charles C. Johnson found that the Dartmouth MSA “routinely advertises speeches  and seminars taught by radical imams.”

The MSA’s track record in turning out  terrorists is indisputable. As are its links to imams and sheiks who preach Jihad. Maybe Dzhokhar Tsarnaev never did more than take part in MSA soccer games  alongside MSA officers and did not absorb any of their views. Perhaps he never  attended an MSA-sponsored lecture by an imam or sheik who discussed the finer points of which infidels you can kill. But considering the MSA’s murderous track  record, it is far more likely that he did.

The Dartmouth MSA was eager to  associate with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev when he was only a terrorist in training, but  is now just as eager to write him off as a soccer buddy. But Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and the MSA shared more than an interest in soccer. They also shared an interest  in Jihad.
