Who is Daniel Mael, and Why is his Safety Threatened?

ט״ו לחודש העשירי העשירי תשע״ה

According to Daniel Mael's website...
[He] is a student at Brandeis University and a Staff Writer at TruthRevolt.org and IsraelRevolt.org and a contributor to the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity. He has made TV appearances on Fox News, Sun News, and The BBC. His writing has appeared in FoxNews.com, Breitbart, The Daily Caller, TownHall, The Jerusalem Post, NewsMax, The Times of Israel, and The Jewish Press among others publications and he is frequently linked on The Drudge Report. He is originally from Newton, MA. 
You can follow him on Twitter @DanielMael.

Now, apparently, Daniel's safety has been threatened, and it is not clear as to what Brandeis University is doing about it, if anything at all.

Here is the story:

The Crisis at Brandeis University – Brandeis President Fred Lawrence Must Immediately End His Silence

We, the undersigned, are alarmed by the on-going crisis at Brandeis University, in which students and their right to free speech are under attack. The university administration has been shamefully unresponsive and must immediately take corrective action.

On December 20th, Brandeis student journalist Daniel Mael reported on inflammatory statements made by a Brandeis student leader on Twitter. Referring to the two NYPD policemen, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, who were recently assassinated, she wrote, “I have no sympathy for the nypd officers who were murdered today,” and “lmao [laughing my a—off] i just really dont have sympathy for the cops who were shot. i hate this racist f---ing country.” Most alarmingly, the student leader’s online messages included calls for violence in comments like, “burn this country down,” and, “i need to get my gun license. asap.”

Commenters, responding to Mael’s article, posted disparagements, curses and threats to the student who had insulted the dead policemen. Daniel Mael immediately and in no uncertain terms publicly condemned these reactions.

Soon however, Mael himself became the target of personal, sometimes violent threats to his safety and well-being made by his fellow students on the Brandeis campus and others. Instead of censuring the hatred expressed toward innocent murder victims, an array of student groups, including several students in student leadership positions at the university, launched a campaign of vilification and intimidation against Mael, demanding that the Brandeis administration punish him for doing nothing more than truthfully reporting hateful comments made in a public forum by a student in a position of authority at the university.

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Those of you who read this blog, even only once in while, already know what I am going to write, in response to Daniel Mael's predicament.

It's the same thing I have written regarding any Jew I have come across, who has been investing his time and energy in the land of his or her exile.

These have included, but not limited to...
Eric Cantor, former Congressman (R-VA) and Minority Whip
Rep. Joe Strauss, Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives
Itamar Gelbman, candidate for Congress (TX-6)
Rb. Nahum Shifrin, candidate for California State Senate
Mindy Pollak, candidate for Montreal City Council 
Say it with me, will you?

Daniel, get the hell out of there already!

Sure, I understand what you are doing. You are seeing injustice, and fighting against it.

You are setting an important example for everyone. But, in particular, you are setting an important example for your fellow Jewish Americans, waking them up, and helping them to become aware of the עלמא דשיקרא (world of lies/illusions) in which you live.

However, what you and our fellow Jews from the U. S. do not quite seem to understand, is that in the end, the U. S. is not our homeland. It is only a temporary dwelling place, no different than how Egypt was for us, almost four thousand years ago.

The only difference between our exile in Egypt and the current exile of Edom (Malbi"m: The West) is the manner of oppression. Egypt was mostly physically based; Edom has become heavily verbally and spiritually based.

My guess is, and this is only a guess, that like most Jews, your neshamah (soul) is very sensitive to issues of right and wrong, of justice, as it is written...
צֶדֶק צֶדֶק, תִּרְדֹּף--[לְמַעַן תִּחְיֶה]... (דברים ט״ז,כ)

Justice, justice you shall pursue, [in order that you will live]... (Deut. 16:20)

But, also like most Jews suffering spiritually in galuth (exile), qelipoth are preventing us from making the connection to be made between this first part of the verse with the last, which is not any less important.
צֶדֶק צֶדֶק, תִּרְדֹּף--לְמַעַן תִּחְיֶה וְיָרַשְׁתָּ אֶת-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר-יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ נֹתֵן לָךְ. (שם)

Justice, justice you shall pursue, in order that you will live, and inherit the land which the LORD thy God has given to you. (ibid)
Not only are we commanded to pursue justice, and not only is this in order that we should live (physically and spiritually), but also in order for us to inherit the Land which The Almighty has given us, Eretz Yisra'el (the Land of Israel).

He did not give us the U. S.

Well, Daniel, apparently, the student leader at Brandeis University, whom you exposed for her incindiary comments, has resigned. You have one your latest battle. Now what?

Sure, your parents probably want you to get the "piece of paper," called a degree. I get that. But, I would like to suggest that you already start planning out your next goals and objectives, including additional education, career, social, and family, by researching your options in Israel.

Just think about how much your people Israel can benefit with you here, fighting for our Land, fighting for a true, Homeland for Jewish safety and security.
