Ahhhh, California. The land of San Francisco and Los Angeles. Land of love and tolerance towards everyone… Well, except the Israelis. And the Jews:

Judea Pearl, father of slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, said Jewish students and faculty at California universities fear for their safety on campus because of threats aimed at them over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

CNN quoted Pearl as saying that anti-Semitic email and verbal threats have escalated since the IDF’s military offensive  in Gaza in January.

“I received hate messages (after a recent panel on “Human Rights and Gaza”) from someone at UCLA who did not identify himself and said, ‘I saw you in Ackerman Union and I know where your office is and I’m going to beat the (expletive) out of you,'” Pearl, who teaches computer science on UCLA’s Westwood campus, told reporters. “I handed it to the campus police, and they did not do anything.”

No, I don’t think everyone’s in CA like that. I’m just amazed at the “tolerance” of some of them.
