Ivy League Antisemitism

Date released: 04/25/2024

Pro-Hamas protesters revealed their hatred toward Jews this week at Columbia University and other colleges across the U.S. Jewish students and professors were cautioned that they cannot be protected by school administrators.

Kasim reveals how anti-Israel, anti-Zionist propaganda sets a dangerous precedent for other forms of bigotry in this episode of the CUFI Minute.

Iran’s failed attempt to cripple Israel

Date released: 04/18/2024

The Iranian regime launched a major strike against Israel this weekend, firing a massive barrage of drones and ballistic missiles of which 99% miraculously failed to reach their targets. Meanwhile, in cities across the U.S., anti-Israel protesters responded by burning American flags and chanting “Death to America.”

In this episode, Kasim describes the Iranian regime’s long history of violence against Israelis and the critical importance of American support for Israel.

In Michigan, Chants of Death to America

Date released: 04/11/2024

Anti-Israel protesters held a rally in Dearborn, Michigan, chanting “Death to America” and calling on Israel to commit to a cease-fire while ignoring the fact that this week marks six months in captivity for hostages kidnapped by Hamas.

In this episode, Kasim cautions complacent Americans who believe the Israel-Hamas conflict is strictly a Middle Eastern problem that Iranian radicalism has reached American soil.

Tables turn on Iran

Date released: 04/04/2024

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps cried foul this week after seven of its top officials were killed in an airstrike on Damascus, including its senior-most official in Syria who has ties to Hezbollah. Iran blamed Israel for the attack, warning that its response will be harsh.

In this episode, Kasim notes the irony of Tehran’s outrage considering the IRGC’s decades-long history of mass executions at home and murder of innocent people worldwide.

Meet Your Host

Kasim Hafeez

Kasim Hafeez is a British citizen of Pakistani Muslim heritage who grew up being exposed to radical anti-Western, antisemitic, and anti-Israel ideas daily. During his teenage years, Kasim embraced a radical Islamist ideology and became very active in the anti-Israel movement. Thankfully, Alan Dershowitz’s book The Case for Israel challenged Kasim’s fundamental beliefs and caused him to undertake a period of research and reflection that led him to Israel in 2007. Witnessing the true nature of the Jewish state changed Kasim’s perception of Israel. He felt a moral obligation to publicly speak out for Israel and the dangers of radical Islam. He has spoken all over the world including the 2013 Global Forum on Combatting Antisemitism and before the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. Kasim has appeared on radio, television, and in print media. Kasim also appears alongside Holocaust survivor Irving Roth in CUFI’s full-length feature documentary Never Again?.
