Berkeley Resumes Palestine Course [incl. Hatem Bazian]
Less than a week after the University of California, Berkeley, suspended a student-run course on Palestine, the administration reversed its decision and brought it back.
The one-credit course, called Palestine: A Settler Colonial Analysis, was suspended last Tuesday after members of pro-Israel groups accused it of having "anti-Israel bias."
