‘Academic Pogrom’ at Harvard

Stephen Plaut blasts the university’s decision to hold a pseudo-academic conference dedicated, in effect, to advocacy of Israel’s destruction.

Plaut gives a scathing review of the views and backgrounds of the participants in this upcoming “genteel campus pogrom,” notably Ilan Pappe, “who is arguably the most thoroughly discredited pseudo-academic on the planet.”

This cabal will call for a bi-national state with an Islamist Arab majority in charge — and thus the annihilation of Israel. 

Plaut compares what he calls this “Destroy Israel” conference to Harvard’s shocking, extensive ”coddling” of anti-Semites and Nazis in the 1930s.
