The fallout from the Duke/UNC "Conflict Over Gaza" conference in March, which was sponsored by Middle East studies departments at both universities, continues.
Filmmaker and activist Ami Horowitz captured Palestinian rapper Tamer Nafar on video performing a bizarre Jew-hating song at the conference, before which he invited the audience to sing along by declaring, "I cannot be anti-Semitic alone." Horowitz summed up his experience like so: "I heard there was a conference going on about the conflict in Gaza, and my initial assumption was that it was going to be a hate fest against Israel . . . what I did not expect was for it to evolve into open anti-Semitism."
As we noted on Friday, that's exactly what happened at UNC last week when posters referring to "an evil Jewish plot" and the plea to "do everything you can to fight the silent covert Jewish attempt to enslave and kill good Americans," appeared on campus. The fact that this followed the Gaza conference, not to mention "Israeli Apartheid Week" at Duke, is no coincidence.
