Campus Watch and freedom of expression

Reader comment on item: Redeeming the Wayward University [through Engagement by Outsiders]

Submitted by Octavio (Italy), Dec 12, 2006 at 08:32

I agree with you when you talk about American univerities going radical. I could give you examples from non-American institutions. Of course, you are concerned with the anti-Israeli bias of the new Professors. From a moral point of view, you are correct. I know that this is a long-term concern for you, Doctor Pipes: that is why you have got Campus Watch, to stop radical anti-Israeli Professors. You want a more balanced university- system. But then, in America, you have got a more relativistic concept: freedom of expression. I guess there is not much you can do about who teaches in American campuses, as long as you have got to abide by freedom of expression. The only exception was Tariq Ramadan, but then, he is involved with violent organizations, and he is a foreign national.
