"Jewish" Studies at UC Davis

Hat tip J Weekly


Tammi Rossman-Benjamin of the AMCHA Initiative has a column in J Weekly  (Jewish News of Northern California) regarding the letter signed by every University of Californbia chancellor decrying the efforts of their dopey faculty members to promote a boycott of Israeli universities and academics. In this article, she mentions an article in the UC Davis campus paper, The Aggie, in which the director of Jewish Studies at UC Davis, David Biale, actually takes UC to task for not condemning Israel!

Only in academia, right? I find it fascinating that while Middle East studies departments across the nation are filled with leftist, anti-West, anti-Israel propagandists, universities like UC Davis manage to have a director of Jewish studies who opposes Israel. It is an amazing sleight of hand, is it not?
