Judea Pearl Speaks Out on Anti-Semitism at UCLA

Hat tip Pro-Israel Bay Bloggers

UCLA Professor Judea Pearl is the father of Daniel Pearl, the American journalist who was beheaded in Pakistan. In this piece in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Pearl speaks out about the recently-publicized anti-Semitism at UCLA!

This is purely anecdotal, but one of my teaching colleagues at UC Irvine has a son who recently graduated from UCLA. I met him some years ago at an event where David Horowitz was speakingb when he came up and introduced himself.

Anyway, his mother had until recently been of the opinion that because of the high number of Jewish people in the UCLA neighborhood of West LA and the high number of Jewish students that the problem was until control. Not so. As always a small minority of  deternined ideologues can indeed bully a majority.

If they let it happen.
