Victims Conference at UC Berkeley

Hat tip Frontpage Magazine

Hatem Bazian-"victim"

Cinnamon Stillwell and Rima Greene have posted a report on the latest victims' conference at UC Berkeley featuring who else but Berkeley's most noted victim, Hatem Bazian. And how timely, coming on the heels of the April 15 attack in Boston.

Real victims

"Colonialist and Orientalist perceptions generating counter-narratives; disentangling the Palestinian issue from Islamophobic connotations; recasting as a civil rights narrative . . . Transnational associations recasting discussion of Islamophobia . . . analytical framework, which consists of structural context and the discursive strategies of actions."

Last seen, Hatem was speaking at UC San Diego with his dancing partner, Cynthia McKinney. What a hoot that was. If you ever saw the opening of  that movie, "The King's Speech", that was Cynthia McKinney.
