Introducing the Open Muslim Students Association (SPOOF)
As a result of the Open Hillel initiative, where the Jewish student groups throughout North America will invite anti-Israel speakers to offer talks in the name of open communication, the Muslim Students Association of North America has been inspired to start its own Open MSA group.
To kick off the new Open MSA, the Princeton Muslim Students Association will hold a special seminar to be taught by David Wilder, a right-wing settler and advocate of Israeli rule over all the territories.
“We are quite excited to be on the cutting edge of Muslim openness,” said Sarah Qari, president of Princeton MSA. “We respect all viewpoints and it is only natural that we should be able to listen to what the evil usurper settler Wilder has to say, while keeping an open mind,” she added.
“Open MSA does not adhere to any particular political point of view, and all viewpoints are welcome – even those of genocidal Jews!” Qari stated
Other similar programs are being planned throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The Yale Muslim Students Association will host a special performance of the Batsheva Dance Company. “There is no reason for us not to enjoy the beauty of the arts that are being performed by the hated Zionist enemy,” says Didem Kaya, president of the Yale MSA board, as he prepared the stun grenades that will be tossed on stage as a sign of appreciation.
The University of Texas MSA has joined the Open MSA bandwagon as well, inviting Rabbi Yehuda Glick – who advocates Jewish access to the Temple Mount – to speak. “His opinions about his desire to destroy the Al Aqsa Mosque and replace it with a so-called Third Temple are very important to us. And Glick doesn’t have to worry about a thing – we will provide the security ourselves!” said president Usama Khan.
Omar Zaki, chairman of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said that he welcomed the Open MSA initiative, saying it was a natural extension of Islam’s openness to others’ ideas. “Islam is quite accepting of others. To be honest, I was reluctant to join the ‘open’ movement, but then I read the words of Rashid Khalidi, where he said there should be no political litmus test on speakers and artists. Inshallah, we will invite Robert Spencer to keynote our next annual conference,” he declared.
Open Hillel spokesperson Naomi Dann from Vassar was still cautious about the new Open MSA initiative. “I don’t know about this. The people they are inviting are a bit outside the mainstream, if you know what I mean,” she said. “I mean, David Wilder? Yehuda Glick? As open-minded Jews, we would never consider listening to what they have to say!” she declared.
“I’ll be happy to give Open MSA a list of acceptable, righteous Jews for them to invite, if they want.”
