Pro-Palestinian Indoctrination in Academia

Along with bashing America, our indoctrinators masquerading as professors in American universities love to take the Palestinian side in the Israeli issue. For some unfathomable reason, the  Israeli-Palestinian conflict is among the top hot button issues in colleges around the land even though it has no impact on the lives of students on campus.

UC Berkeley has long been one of the worst offenders largely due to the presence of a professor named Hatem Bazian, a Palestinian who obtained his education in the US and now uses his position to lead a crusade against Israel as well as his pet "Islamophobia" agenda. He has brought national embarrassment to UCB, but the school barely seems to notice. Most recently, Bazian is sponsoring a student-taught course that is dedicated to defaming Israel. The student-teacher is a leader of the local Students for Justice in Palestine chapter. SJP is  an organization dedicated to bullying, disruption and intimidation. Oh, by the way, SJP was co-founded by Bazian. The proposed course was briefly suspended due to protests that it violated the UC Regents Policy on Course Content, which supposedly forbids classrooms being used to advance political causes as well as its contribution to the on-going problem of campus anti-Semitism. This week, it has been reinstated by a cowering university. Thus, the Regents' policy is not worth the paper it is printed on. In addition, if you are wondering why students are teaching courses at UCB, so am I. Maybe the professors are on strike or too busy doing their research to get their butts into the classroom.

Tammi Rossman-Benjamin wrote the below article for Forward just before the announcement that the course was being reinstated with certain "revisions". Maybe the instructor was required to get a haircut before starting the class.

In addition, Tammi has also written the below related piece for the Jerusalem Post.

And furthermore, its an issue of non-class origin, so there is nothing "left" about it.
