Thank you for taking a stand

Reader comment on item: The Rot in Our [Canadian] Universities

Submitted by Sara Miller (United States), Jan 31, 2003 at 10:46

It is so important that you are taking a stand against all this madness at our universities. It is insane that you are considered a threat and get disinvited from lectures, while Islamists and other violent, terror-supporting extremists are given free rein to rant against Israel and America all the time without ever worrying about suffering any consequences. Obviously, you do not advocate "genocide" or any other such ridiculous policy, yet you are treated like the worst pariah, which shows the extent of the extremism regarding the Middle East on our campuses.

I'm a teacher at Queens College, and I heard your excellent lecture there back in May. Fortunately, Queens College is not a radical hotbed of anti-Israel activism thanks to the demographics (many Jewish students and even many Orthodox ones, in an Orthodox area), so there were no problems there. Unfortunately, this is not the case at many colleges. I thank you for speaking out against this sickening phenomenon on our campuses today and for continuing to take the necessary steps. We must fight against these uncompromising forces that won't allow any dissenting voices to be heard.
