The prospect of Moises Mendoza being a future foreign diplomat scares me almost as much as the fact he was a past editor at the Hoya. His article attacking Bill Maniaci, who currently has an $8 million dollar lawsuit against Georgetown reflects a poor sense of accuracy in what he writes and reports.
I was present when Maniaci was beaten by Georgetown security guards, who threw the ex-police officer through a closed wooden door using his head as a battering ram. For
Mendoza to call the resultant lawsuit frivolous, disgusting and dangerous, and an attempt to frighten universities into trampling upon speech reflects a bias compounded by Mendozas ignorance: He was not there and I was.
I would submit it is more disgusting and dangerous to host an event by a Palestine Solidarity Movement that included a recruiting session for volunteers to serve as human shields for the likes of Hamas, PFLP and Islamic Jihad, groups that PSM leader Huwaida Arraf openly admitted in a letter to the Washington Post her group openly works with.
In addition, the presence of a Fatah security services officer named Ali Omar at the event also should raise eyebrows. Fatah murdered some teenagers in Israel at a hitchhiking post
the same week Georgetown held its conference.
Lets be frank. Georgetown was not standing up for free speech. It was bending over for the $20 million donation it got from Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, the main financier of Hamas.
I faced Daniel Porterfield on the OReilly Show where he lied and claimed the PSM had no links to terrorist groups. Recently published photos of ISM volunteers recruited for the West Bank waving AK-47s with an Al Aksa Terrorist (like Mr. Omar, no doubt) reveal why the event should never have been allowed.
And just who is Abu Rish to say Mr. Maniacis physical disabilities were not taken advantage of? Medical doctors at Walter Reed hospital found severe injuries including a concussion and numerous bruises. Terrorists frequently use the appellation "Abu" as a nom de guerre; so the name does suggest someone more likely to want to endorse the Jew-hating and terrorist supporting conference that it was.
Frankly, it is not racist to mention that Muslim mobs are rioting in Europe when they are. Mendoza likes to use the red herring of "racism" to label anyone who doesn'tt agree with his political stance. It's ironic Mendoza also champions free speech for terrorism enablers but praises the Hoyas censorship in not allowing Maniacis ad to run. I watched Maniaci being beaten and there is no excuse for Gerogetown's behavior.
Maniaci walks with a cane, is 67 year-old and no spring rooster. He was savagely beaten by GU guards, for asking a simple question to which he never got an answer, only a whipping: Do you support terrorism? Its understandable he didn't want to talk with Mendoza who passes judgment on events and people he knows nothing about from first hand experience, ignorantly supporting enablers of terrorism along the way.
