Another Nakba at UCLA

UCLA is the home of something called the Center for Near East Studies, which consists of a bunch of Israel-haters masquerading as academics. It features such luminaries as James (Dr. Doom) Gelvin and Gabriel (Huggy Boy) Piterberg. Gabe is a well-known figure around campus since there are alerts for all co-eds to steer clear of the "Kissing professor". But I digress.

In April, CNES held yet another conference dedicated to bashing Israel. My friend and colleague, Eric Golub, attended and wrote a report for Algemeiner and Campus Watch. The conference made history for coining a new term to describe the Arab inability to beat Israel at war. Instead of Nakba (catastrophe), it is Naksa (setback). That is to describe what happened when the Arab world initiated a war with Israel in 1967 (with nakbarian consequences for them).

Here is Eric's report.

                                                                          "Good news, mein Fuehrer. It's only a setback."

(I wonder what they'll call the 1973 failure to defeat Israel.)

Honestly, don't these people get tired putting on these same old conferences about Israel? It must be to justify their existence. The Center  for Near East Studies is a true nakba for UCLA. This conference was obviously just the latest, er, naksa.

Poverty pimps never tire of doing over and over whatever brings in the money that keeps them in the business of doing the same thing over and over. Of course I have a similar opinion of David Horowitz. He's just working the other side of the street.
