Guilford Hate Crime Hoax Prosecution Dropped - West Bank Student's Allegations Found Bogus

March 14, 2007 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Charges of assault, battery and assorted "hate crimes" made by a group of "Palestinian" students against members of the Guilford College football team were dropped today by Greensboro, NC District Attorney Howard Neumann.

In a statement to the press, Neumann said he could not prove the case in court, "I'm sure each one of these students who gave a statement believes what they say is truthful, and that's the way they saw it. When we go into a courtroom, our burden is to prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt. And, in my opinion, we would not be able to do that in this case."

The Guilford "hate crime" case thus becomes the latest of the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR] causes célèbre to be found wanting.

As detailed by PipeLineNews.org in a series of articles, the charges against the football players by the West Bank accusers lacked credibility from the outset which did nothing to stop campus leftists and radical Muslim groups from agitating to politicize the investigation.

Guilford College Controversy Being Manipulated By CAIR

Unfortunately on many American college campuses, the facts matter little to multicultural ideologues such as Guilford's Jane Redmont, who teaches religious and women's studies:

"Just because the legal issue has been resolved from the perspective of the legal system doesn't mean the issues we're dealing with campus are resolved."

For faux academics such as Ms. Redmont the gravity of the charges trump even the truth as long as the "Palestinian" cause is championed.

Though the charges against the Guilford athletes have been dropped substantial questions remain:

Will the politically charged Guilford College investigation of this matter also be resolved in favor of the student athletes?

Will the two Guilford College accusers, Faris Khader and Omar Sabbah be expelled because of their actions in this matter as well as for their previous history of violence against a Jewish student?

Will Guilford College rightfully abandon its relationship with the suicide bomber friendly Friends school in Ramallah, from whence the accusers hail?

Will the architect of this relationship, Guilford's Dr. Max Carter be called to account?


Players who 'assaulted' Palestinians case dropped


Associated Press, THE JERUSALEM POST Mar. 15, 2007

Prosecutors dropped charges Wednesday against six North Carolina college football players accused of assaulting three Palestinian students and using ethnic slurs during a campus fight.

Witness statements from nearly 30 people, including the Palestinian students, give a "confusing picture" of what happened and showed the fight at Guilford College was not about ethnic intimidation, Guilford County Assistant District Attorney Howard Neumann said.

All six players had faced misdemeanor assault charges, while five had been charged with ethnic intimidation, also a misdemeanor, Neumann said. None would have faced jail time if convicted.

The Palestinian students told a magistrate judge they were taunted with racial slurs and called terrorists as they were beaten and kicked during a Jan. 20 fight on campus, according to court papers. Two of the students attend Guilford College, and the third attends North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
