Middle East studies in the News
St. Lawrence University Hosted Professor Who Lies About Israel [on Simona Sharoni]
by Ben Schwartz
On March 6, St. Lawrence University presented a workshop on campus activism.
Campus activism has always been a part of our society.
It is an important step in ensuring that future leaders and citizens are prepared to tackle matters such as poverty, racism, women's rights and other essential causes.
The facilitator of this workshop, however, was Simona Sharoni.
She is a woman well known for spreading lies and half-truths about the state of Israel.
For example, not content to deliver false information to her students about what's going on inside Israel, she concocts bizarre lies and conspiracy theories like making a connection between policies in the tiny Jewish state 6,000 mile away and campus rape here in the United States.
Her falsehoods do not harm only Israel.
She filled a young student's mind so full of racist hate that she died for these lies.
In a famous incident, her student, Rachel Corrie, went to Gaza during the second intifada to protect Hamas.
She died lying down in front of an armored bulldozer to protect Hamas smuggling tunnels in the midst of an armed conflict.
Hamas is a racist organization that spews hate and tries to kill Jews and other minorities and spouts hate-filled racist rhetoric while wearing hoods.
Rachel Corrie died to protect the KKK of the Middle East.
And Simona Sharoni, the guest facilitator at SLU, was partly responsible for sending her.
We should be cognizant of the manipulation of young minds by terror-supporting academics.
And we should make sure that our children are being taught the truth, not racist hate.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
