  1. I’m glad you recognize there is anti-semitism world wide. I haven’t noticed your exposure of it, can you please explain that?

    1. You “haven’t noticed” means I haven’t written about the subject?? Since when? I have. Now do a search & find it. Second, when you can show me the last time you criticized Israel for it’s subjugation of the Palestinians I’ll show you the last piece I wrote about anti-Semitism.

      1. No need to search your blog, I have read your blog long enough. To know what to expect. You are biased in every respect. That is not news. However I did do a Google and Came across many blogs explaining some of your latest antics. Rather pathetic and hypocritical on your part.
        Enjoy the final word. Call me a Hasbarist, Kahanist or a Troll and avoid the issue. I hardly expect your MO to change over this story.

        1. Hey, why do anything so old-fashioned & tedious as reading or arguing substance or producing facts. So much easier to rely on the lame propaganda produced by other right-wing hasbarists. You’re welcome to your pro-Israel idyll.

        2. Well, if one extrapolates beyond your few words here, one might well assume that you are ineed “a Hasbarist, Kahanist or a Troll”, and as such probably strive dilligently to assist Israel in maintaining and even aggrandizing its status of rogue nation in defiance of international law and simple morality. “Thou shall not steal”, etc.

  2. RE: “Marcus attempted to argue that having an uninvolved professor steer a Jewish student away from a Massad course indicated that his department was instilling a hostile environment for Jews on campus. How do you spell P-R-E-P-O-S-T-E-R-O-U-S?” ~ R.S.

    (excerpt)…It is an extraordinary fact that no fewer than thirty-three distinct organizations – including AIPAC, the Zionist Organization of America, the American Jewish Congress, and the Jewish National Fund – are gathered together today as members or affiliates of the Israel on Campus Coalition. The coalition is an overwhelmingly powerful presence on American college campuses for which there is simply no equivalent on the Palestinian or Arab side. Its self-proclaimed mission is not merely to monitor our colleges and universities. That, after all, is the commitment of Campus Watch, which was started by pro-Israel activists in 2002. It is, rather (and in its own words), to generate “a pro-active, pro-Israel agenda on campus.”
    There is, accordingly, disproportionate and unbalanced intervention on campuses across the country by a coalition of well-funded organizations, who have no time for — and even less interest in — the niceties of intellectual exchange and academic process. Insinuation, accusation, and defamation have become the weapons of first resort to respond to argument and criticism directed at Israeli policies. As far as these outside pressure groups (and their campus representatives) are concerned, the intellectual and academic price that the scholarly community pays as a result of this kind of intervention amounts to little more than collateral damage…

  3. The David Project redux, or parts of it. It’s bad enough we bend over backwards and every other way to support morally, financially, militarily, even against our own self-interest, an aggressor nation that for almost 45 years has been in contravention of international law, but for that nation, or our relationship to it, to penetrate our political process as it has and even our university campuses is almost beyond belief. With allies like this and its Israel-commits-no-wrong apologists, we needn’t ever want for enemies.
