Reader comment on item: Harvard Loves Jihad

Submitted by Charles Goebel (United States), Jun 11, 2002 at 22:09

There was a petition circulated protesting this appearance on behalf of Harvard Alumni and Students. I signed it (as an alum). I recall a substantial number of eligible persons signed, along with another petition protesting the Israeali Divestment proposal.

For further details see Matthew Yglesias' Blog at http://www.yglesais.blogspot.com/ .

You can find further details there. Mr. Yglesais is presently a student at Harvard (undergraduate) in philosophy, I believe. Further, he is a sometime writer for The Crimson and an independent paper, raising these issues on campus.

As a completely catty remark, I knew one of the faculty comittee members that approved the Jihad lecture when we were graduate students together. Let's just say that (1) I'm not surprised he had a hand in this, and (2) it figures....


PS. President Summers is bringing back the ROTC to campus. At last.
