BDS Professors [on Mark LeVine]
by Gary Fouse
Campus Watch has cross-posted an article by Dan Pine in JWeekly, in which he lists several university professors who are supporting the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement aimed at Israel including your friend and mine, Mark LeVine (that rhymes).
"F— all of you who want to make arguments about civility and how Israel wants peace. There is only one criticism of Israel that is relevant: It is a state grown, funded, and feeding off the destruction of another people. It is not legitimate. It must be dismantled, the same way that the other racist, psychopathic states across the region must be dismantled."
Could it be true that those words actually emanated from the mouth of Mark LeVine? I don't believe it. Not after last November when he got his pony tail all afluster when I called him an anti-Israel activist in front of his class. I have sent the below link to Mr. Pine for his reading pleasure.
"If you ever call me anti-Israel again, you're going to have a big problem. That's slanderous."
It must be a different Mark LeVine. Of course, there's only one Mark LeVine I know that spells his name with a capital V. (He's French, you know.)Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
