Pace University Professor Praised Intifada in Pro-Palestinian Children's Book [on Golbarg Bashi]
by Malcolm A. Kline
A Pace University professor authored a pro-Palestinian children's book, leading to outcry among pro-Israel supporters and Jews due to the use of the word "intifada." The author, Golbarg Bashi, wrote the book entitled, "P is for Palestine."
The author claimed that the word "intifada" means standing up for what is right, while critics are unhappy with the violent past associated with the word, where over a thousand Israelis died in two Palestinian intifadas.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
