Anti-Israel Columbia Prof Hamid Dabashi a Big Hit in Germany
Columbia University Iranian studies scholar Hamid Dabashi is experiencing a flurry of speaking engagements at German universities and organizations. It's no coincidence that he exemplifies academic hatred for Israel and the trivialization of Germans crimes and the Holocaust. Writing for Campus Watch
, Clemens Heni, Director of the Berlin International Center for the Study of Antisemitism (BICSA), illustrates why Dabashi has become the darling of German academe. His article appears today at the Algemeiner:
Germany is a hotbed of academic antisemitism, particularly in the fields of Islamic and Middle Eastern studies. Germans are particularly pleased with non-European scholars, such as Dabashi, who will defame Israel and downplay the crimes of the Holocaust. . . . As I demonstrated in my 2013 book, Dabashi wants to destroy the Jewish state of Israel, which he calls a "racist Apartheid state." He supported German former Waffen SS member and Nobel Prize Laureate Günter Grass after he'd written a nasty anti-Israel poem portraying Iran as a victim of Israeli aggression.
