Self-Hating Jew Kenneth Roth Gets Fellowship at Harvard University

Reader comment on item: How Can Israel Win the Palestinian Conflict?

Dear Dr. Daniel Pipes,

I'm quite sure you are aware that the agency at Harvard University, which denied Ken Roth a Fellowship has reversed course - he will get it. Among other things, he blames the Jews for the rise of Antisemitism because of the alleged Policy of Israel against Palestinians. Your advocacy for an Israeli Victory has no deducible consequences regarding this non-Military "War" against Israel which the Palestinians are waging. And Roth, more than anyone else is responsible labeling Israel an Apartheid state. In fact, it is the Palestinians, other Arab Countries, Muslim Countries, and the vast majority of the Nations of the UN General Assembly, who want, explicitly, or effectively, for Jews to "go back where they came from," especially the Ashkenazim (European Jews). Once again, I wish to remind your readers that "Close Settlement" was recognized (not given) as a Right of the Jews to Settle in Palestine by the League of Nations (about 1923) which was subsequently adopted by its Successor, the United Nations. In brief, the world wants to force Israel to live with the Muslim Palestinian Arabs in spite of the fact that they wish to, and are, killing Jews or Israeli Jews, with missiles, and knives.

No other country, which happens to be a Jewish Democracy, is subject to such hatred and animosity, which cannot be anything but Classical Antisemitism - hatred of Jews because they are better (at whatever they do as a People).

There is no way I can deduce a Strategy for Israel based on your Policy of an Israeli Victory. I have no idea how your Victory Concept address the "fight" against Anti-Zionism (which is a form of Antisemitism). It is in this realm that the Palestinians have successfully emerged a "Victims," especially under the advocacy of former Human Rights Watch head, our (fellow) Jewish Kenneth Roth. I cannot think of any other person who has done more to (non-militarily) "defeat" Israel, than Kenneth Roth, except perhaps George Soros who, incidentally, financed Kenneth Roth when Roth ran the Human Rights Watch.

So now America's oldest and arguably most revered University, through one of its divisions, will award Antisemite lawyer Roth, a Fellowship, effectively so he could continue spreading Anti-Israel Antisemitism. Here is a "battle" in which Israel has been defeated - in other words, no Victory for Israel.
