Khalil's Hateful Website [on California State University, Stanislaus prof. As'ad Abu Khalil]
by Candace de Russy
It's no-holds-barred at the "Angry Arab" website of California State University professor of politics As'ad Abu Khalil. One commentator foams at the mouth on being informed by Khalil that Rudy Giuliani – whom the angry academic labels "Jewliani" – has asked Daniel Pipes, a leading critic of Middle East Studies, to serve as an adviser in his presidential campaign. Anti-Semitic and other bigoted ravings are on display for all to see.
UPDATE: My citing of the hateful "Jewliani" item on Khalil's website might have been misinterpreted. By way of clarification, my reference was to a posting by a commentator on that site, not to a posting by Khalil himself.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
