The Face of Evil. Welcome to the Ninth Circle:

On the day after September 11, Micki Weinberg walked to the UC Berkeley campus still in shock. At the entrance to campus, facing Telegraph Avenue, huge sheets of blank paper were spread out as an impromptu memorial on which students, faculty, and other passersby were invited to write comments. Glad to have found such a forum, Weinberg scanned the inscriptions. Then he saw one, large and clear, that stopped him dead in his tracks:
"It's the Jews, stupid."

The slender Weinberg, a year younger than most freshmen, had only just arrived at Cal from Beverly Hills, where he had been president of his high school's Shalom Club. As a young teenager, he had savored heady stories of how Mario Savio and his comrades in the Free Speech Movement danced the hora and sang "Hava Nagila" at sit-ins and peace rallies forty years ago. The son of left-wing, Jewish intellectuals, Weinberg viewed himself as one too, having spent the summer before his senior year of high school in Myanmar, cataloguing the archives of Rangoon's disintegrating and depopulated Jewish synagogue. "That's why I came to Berkeley -- because of its strong romantic aura of the Free Speech Movement and Mario Savio," he recalls. "Then I got here and discovered that that light seems to have been extinguished. You have this vitriol. You feel it everywhere. Berkeley is now the epicenter of real hatred."

Please read the whole thing. I'm so speechless with rage over this article that I'm afraid to write too much, for fear of saying something I'll later regret, so I'll only say that its all here: the self-righteous neo-Nazi Leftists, the Muslim fanatics who demand freedom and liberation for themselves while seeking to deny it to the Jews, the bourgeois Jewish organizations who are clueless to do anything effective, the biased and/or cowardly administrators who care about every minority group on campus except their Jewish students, the vile double standards by which Muslim and Leftwing groups can use any dispicable, violent tactic they want while the Jewish groups must be perfectly obediant at all times...This is Nuremburg, this is Kishinev, this is Munich, this is the new Holocaust in the making.

Something must be done.
