Moonbat Alert

Eugene Girin has an article outlining a group calling itself the Peace and Justice Studies Association (PJSA).

I wouldn't be surprised to see Moonbats using links to PJSA items in attempting to bolster their arguments against the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. If they do, so just remind them of the background of a couple of the major players in the group (from the article):

The leader of the PJSA is the vehemently anti-Israel activist Simona Sharoni. A native of Israel and the daughter of a Holocaust survivor from Romania. Sharoni has devoted her adult life to anti-Israel and anti-American activism.
Sharoni is a founding member of the "Women In Black,” a group of Israeli women who sided with the Palestinian terrorists during the first Intifada. “Women in Black” were nicknamed "the black witches" by Israeli soldiers for their disruption of counter-terrorism activities and for their harassment of Israeli security personnel at roadblocks and checkpoints.

PJSA includes peaceniks who dwell in a transparently delusional world. A perfect example is Howard Richards, a professor in the Peace and Global Justice Studies department at Earlham College. What is Professor Richards solution to achieving World Peace?

"Reduce, reuse, and recycle";
"Cultivate an organic garden";
"Use less fossil fuel"; and
"Process inner anger by following a spiritual path or getting some form of therapy."

"Plant flowers, see a psychotherapist—this, according to Richards, is the way to defeat al-Qaeda and Zarqawi's butchers in Iraq."

As Mr Girin concludes his article:

"While the PJSA might be seen as an obscure leftist group with insane or repugnant views, the sobering reality is that most PJSA is an association of educators who have authority over hundreds if not thousands of young Americans yearly. American parents should be aware that the teachers of their children could be PJSA-supporting pedagogues. Far from being a peace organizaton the Peace and Justice Studies Association is a division in the fifth column army that is at war with America and the West."

I agree, we as parents MUST become more aware just WHO is teaching indoctrinating our young skulls full of mush, to borrow a phrase from El Rushbo. It is a disservice not only to our children, but our country not to become educated on the state of Higher Education today.

Oh my god! Tell me it isn't true! Recyclers and organic gardners teaching our kids! Man the trenches!

I know you meant to sound facitious, Karlo, but YES, I would be concerned if a professor teaching one of my children tried to tell them that the way to World Peace was through organic gardening and recycling. especially if he was teaching something as amorphous as "Peace and Global Studies"

While both of those things have merit in their own right, I hardly think that they would provide a very viable defense against the likes of Al Quiada. They certainly don't have anything to do with the reality of Global politics.

But even worse, they are cheating our children of one of the most valuable things they can ever possess, a real education.

let me get this straight. One of the leaders of this organization is a daughter of Holocaust survivor who is anti-Israeli, and supports Palestinian terrorists. Was she dropped on her head as a child? then we have a professor who advocates reduce, reuse and recycle as a way to achieve peace in our time? Somehow something just ain't right.actually it doesn't make a darn bit of sense. it is like being...French!
