Academic Support for Palestinians

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Hat tip The Israel Group

Elizabeth Redden has written a thought-provoking article in Inside Higher Education that addresses the preponderance of academic support for the Palestinian cause in US universities.

Aside from the very pertinent questions, the writer asks, what strikes me (though it is hardly news) is why is there so much Palestinian support among departments like gender studies and Middle East Studies, two departments (among many in the Humanities field) that are so oriented to the left?

Is it not noteworthy that all these academic leftists who infest our universities are completely onboard against the Jewish state of Israel while ignoring such obvious facts as the fact that it was Hamas in Gaza who started the latest round of fighting-as it invariably the case? Why is it that these same leftists completely ignore, time after time, the terrorism and anti-Jewish hate of Hamas? Why do they ignore the vicious displays of anti-Semitism that have broken out in the US and Europe? One might also ask why these American leftists are so supportive of the Palestinians, who have no love for America and actually celebrated on 9-11? Could it be that these same academics have contempt for America as well?

Just askin’.
