You might find this of interest. This happened at Rutgers. I have always fought for the right of Muslims and held the massive rally to help support them in AMERICA. The Muslim student dropped my course. It was obvious from the beginning that she wanted to cause trouble for me. I am the only one wearing a Yarmulka. This was obvious to all my students. Dr. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

To whom it may concern,

My name is Mena Beshay, a junior at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. The
purpose of this email is to inform and raise awareness of one of the most
significant issues that threaten this university. It is very unfortunate that a
university as diverse as Rutgers, does not do enough to protect its faculty,
staff, and students from harassment and persecution based on religion. This is a
very serious issue that I unfortunately witness too often. As part of the Coptic
Orthodox Fellowship (COF) here at Rutgers I have personally been harassed in
many instances by Muslim students. On my way out of COF meetings or events when
walking out with my Priest we will be looked at, pointed at, laughed at, cursed
at, and hear phrased like “Allah we Agbar” or “Salam Aleekom” which are two very
common Islamic phrases. Instances like these unfortunately occur too often on
Rutgers Campuses. I know for a fact, because i personally heard it that Rabbi
Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg who wears a skullcap and is outspoken on behalf of the
Jewish community is a target from many of the Muslim students on campus. I know
this because being a student in his class i have heard this from students in a
variety of ways.. It undoubtedly raises the
question of why Dr. Rosenberg is the one being singled out. Living and growing
up in Egypt, instances like this are all too common for me, it is clear that
someone intended on destroying him based on his religion and beliefs. he is one
of the most popular teachers on campus and it is impossible to get into any of
his classes from how much students respect and admire him. His public speaking
class is one that I am eagerly waiting to attend because it is one of the few
classes I actually enjoy and learn from. I am not Jewish , I am a Coptic
Orthodox Christian and I can verify there is anti-Semitism on campus, and that
Rabbi Dr. Rosenberg.

Concerned Student,
Mena Beshay
