UC Berkeley Professor Under Fire

Hat tip Algemeiner



Nezar AlSayyad



Looks like yet another UC Berkeley professor is under fire (Aren't they all?). In this case, it's Nezar AlSayyad, an architecture professor who is also supposedly a "renowned Middle East scholar". He's accused of-you guessed it- sexual harassment, and a lot of students want to see him gone.

I don't know the facts of this case, so I will withhold judgment, but here's my question:

If he is a "renowned Middle East scholar", what's he doing teaching architecture?

"Uhhhh.....yeaaaah."

Here's more on AlSayyad:
