Nightmares..And Other Shocking Findings
by Aussie Dave
Code Pinker Ariel Gold, seen recently interrupting Ashton Kutcher at an event before being gracefully shut down by the actor, loves her stunts. Besides her infamous Western Wall shenanigans, and of course Kutcher-gate, she has gained notoriety for organizing a talk in Ithaca, NY by terror supporter Bassem Tamimi (also known as Shirley Temper's father) – with a third grade class!
Cornell law professor William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection has been all over this story, even successfully obtaining more information about the event pursuant to a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request. And he has discovered it was even worse than first thought, with a transcript of the event showing how these young students were incited to oppose Israel and encouraged to become "freedom fighters."
This tells you all you need to know about the Israel haters – they will stop at nothing to demonize and ultimately dismantle and destroy the Jewish state. And just like Bassem Tamimi views his own children as resources to exploit in pursuit of this goal, this is how he and people like Ariel Gold view the children of others – like these grade 3 Ithaca students.
Professor Jacobson writes he also won a court order that the video (redacted to protect student privacy) be produced, which he expects to have in the coming weeks.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
