University of Washington Learns About Steven Salaita the Hard Way

The University of Washington wanted to hear discredited ex-professor Steven Salaita speak on Israel, so they did. What they heard was not pretty. One Jewish UW professor who had supported Salaita learned that he was nothing more than an anti-Semite.

I suspect Salaita will continue to go from campus to campus with his invective. He will be the next Norm Finkelstein, but even rabidly liberal universities will conclude he is too toxic and hateful to hire. Eventually, people will lose interest in his message and he will wind up in some backwater like Turkey with Finkelstein.
