UCLA Professor Accused of Sexual Harrassment

Hat tip Campus Watch and Daily Bruin

UCLA professor Gabriel Piterberg has been accused of sexual harassment and UCLA officials are also accused of not responding properly to the complaints.

Here is more detail from CBS.

I don't know Piterberg and have no idea as to the veracity of the complaints. I only know that Piterberg is an activist in various campus activities designed to attack the stae of Israel. In January 2009' I saw him appear with several other anti-Israel speakers at UC Irvine at an event called, Whither the Levant. To say I was not impressed is an understatement. Piterberg was born in Argentina, but grew up in Israel, a country he now trashes.

Without prejudging, I will only say as I said in the Daily Bruin reader thread that hopefully, the university will handle these charges against a faculty member as seriously as they do similar charges against students.
