Should a man who claims to "understand" why people are anti-Semitic be invited to speak at Columbia University? Someone who wrote an opinion piece so dogmatic and bigoted that it was posted on the website of Hamas's military wing, and who recommended an essay by known Holocaust denier Roger Garaudy?
Unburdened by such concerns, Columbia's Center for Palestine Studies, and its co-director Rashid Khalidi, proudly hosted journalist Ben White to discuss his latest book, Cracks In The Wall: Beyond Apartheid Palestine/Israel. Campus Watch contributor Karys Rhea's report appears today at the Algemeiner:
White summarized his book by naming the "three cracks in the wall" that currently undermine "Israel's ability to maintain an apartheid state." These are: "Factures and division that are visible now" within the Jewish-American community; "the end of the bipartisan era of support for Israel"; and the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.
By his own admission, White acknowledged that BDS is not interested in peace. The movement, he noted, has been "intelligently designed to disrupt and critique a quite suffocating peace process discourse."
