Anti-Israel Course is a Campus Farce

Sunday’s New York Times has a story on the campus boycott Israel movement. Toward the end, it alludes to a controversy at the University of California, Riverside. I quote the passage in full:

The disputes often spill into the academic realm. Jewish groups are urging the University of California, Riverside, to shut down a student-taught seminar called “Palestinian Voices.” They argue that the course, which is sponsored by an outspoken faculty supporter of the B.D.S. campaign and includes sessions on “Settler-Colonialism and Apartheid,” amounts to indoctrination.

    I would like to see someone start a course that suggests we should bring back black slavery. Hey it’s just a point of view.

    student-taught seminar called “Palestinian Voices.”

    The parallels between the modern campus and the takeover of German universities by the brownshirts in the 1930’s is uncanny.

    …and the far-left CBC News trots out one of its lead anti-Semites, Neil Macdonald, with this story about the Harper government considering hate charges against Canadian-university BDS movements. (Sorry, I can’t supply the link since my copy key doesn’t seem to be working — but it’s right on the CBC News front page). Check out the Jew-hating, pro-Macdonald comments at the bottom of the article).
