Moonlighting: Non-Specialists in the News
Lincoln University Professor Under Fire [on Kaukab Siddique]
by Bryan Schwartzman
Pennsylvania state legislators are pressing the administration of Lincoln University for more information on a literature professor who has called for the destruction of Israel and who, according to the lawmakers, has promoted denial of the Holocaust.
The Pakistani-born Kaukab Siddique is a tenured professor at Lincoln, an historically black college in Chester County that receives state funding.
Though some in the community have been aware of his speeches and writings for several years, Siddique has gained notoriety recently as a video of a speech he gave on Labor Day in Washington has circulated on the Internet.
In the video, posted by www.investigativeproject.org and aired on the Christian Broadcasting Network, Siddique tells a crowd at an anti-Israel rally: "We must stand united to defeat, to destroy, to dismantle Israel -- if possible by peaceful means."Note: Articles listed under "Moonlighting: Non-Specialists in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
