Hatem By Name, Hate'Em By Nature [on Hatem Bazian]
by Aussie Dave
A few months ago, someone placed flyers around New York city, highlighting the "sketchy alliance" between Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), and American Muslims for Palestine (AMP). The flyers were also left at the homes of JVP Executive Director Rebecca Vilkomerson, and AMP Chairman Hatem Bazian (for the record, I had nothing to do with it, despite the libellous claim of Electronic Intifada "reporter" Charlotte Silver).
At the time, I detailed Hatem Bazian's antisemitism, terror support, and terror associations.
Now anonymous group Canary Mission has come out with a new video showing footage of the aptly named Hatem in action.
In a response to the video, Hatem focused on the fact that Canary Mission is anonymous, and denied he is the most dangerous professor in America – but couldn't actually deny what is shown in the footage!
Note how he calls Canary Mission a hate site – all they do is expose the antisemitism and terror support of haters. This is the same tactic employed by Linda Sarsour to try silence opponents of her very real, hateful statements.
In the meantime, a quick look at Bazian's Twitter timeline just reaffirms his antisemitism and support of terrorism.
For example, he retweets Shehab News Agency, a Hamas propaganda outlet.
This tweet reveals he spoke at the recent Palestine Expo hatefest. Note the topic.
And this retweet tries to implicate Jews escaping Nazi Germany with their lives with the Nazis.
This is a man entrusted with educating young Americans. G-d help them, and G-d help all of us.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
