Palestinian Supporters Hold Crybaby Conference at UC Berkeley [incl. Hatem Bazian]
by Gary Fouse
Play it again, Sam.
Yesterday, the pro-Palestinian lobby held yet another victicrat conference at UC Berkeley complaining that their efforts to spread Palestinian propaganda is being suppressed. Pro-Israel Bay Bloggers has the report.
Astounding. The pro-Palestinian lobby is without question the loudest voice on university campuses across North America. Try to hold a pro-Israel event and you get shouted down by a bunch of Brown Shirts.
Of course I note that UC Berkeley professor Hatem Bazian was there. That's about all this boob does is agitate against Israel when he isn't keeping files of people who speak out about all the Islamic horror going on around the word.
And also present was Rabab Abdulhadi of SF State, the mentor to a group of students who had wet dreams about killing Israeli soldiers.
And don't forget Richard Falk the ex-Rapporteur on human rights abuses in the Palestinian territories or some such absurd UN title. Not exactly an impartial observer. Even the Obama administration disowned him after his one-sided report to the UN.
But if these mad hatters think their free speech on behalf of the Palestinian cause is being suppressed in academia, that's like the Communists in the old Soviet Union complaining that their free speech is being suppressed.
A truly absurd complaint from the side that effectively controls the discourse in academia.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
