Rutgers University Professor Noura Erakat is suffering from what she calls "mental health stuff," including anxiety and paranoia, all due to her penchant for anti-Israel activism. CW Fellow Andrew Harrod covers a recent stop on Erakat's book tour in Washington, D.C., where, in addition to recounting her personal traumas, she admitted to earning her law degree purely for political purposes and that "Palestine is . . . not a state-building enterprise." She also indulged in the latest pseudo-academic pastimes on the anti-Israel circuit: intersectionality and distorting the identities of Israel's Mizrahi Jews.
Harrod's article appears at the American Spectator:

James Cobey and Zeina Azzam, well-known activists from Washington, D.C.'s local anti-Israel scene, attended. Erakat gushed that being "in the company of movement family" made this event her book-tour favorite.
