Donahue, Dabashi & Pipes

Reader comment on item: Campus Watch - A Good Idea?

Submitted by William Papke (United States), Sep 30, 2002 at 20:47

I is incredible to me that Dabashi was able to land the below the belt punches he did. Failed academic? When did you last beat your wife? I am appalled that Donohue allowed Dabashi to get away with that. Not surprised, simply appalled. Donohue would be one of those weeping wonders who would rub there hands and stammer "Well I didn't know." if Israel were wiped off the map. That or he would say they brought it on themselves.

But I have to say Dr. Pipes you have to be less on the defensive with masters of dissembly like Dashabi. The only way to defeat those attacks to is to attack the attack. Look, bottom line, Donohue is an apologist for every inane anti western and anti Israeli argument known. To hold your own in there you have to be more aggressive and put the attacker on the defensive. Don't get me wrong. I'm all for you, but, Donohue and others with his mind set are out ambush you. Anyway, just another supporter.

Sincerely,
William Papke
