Haifa U. Prof on Anti-Semitism and Appeasement in the Academy

From Gamla:

The most ant-Semitic political entity is the Palestinian Authority, says Haifa University’s Prof. David Bukai at the Fourth Annual Jerusalem Conference…
[S]peaking Monday at a Conference session on anti-Semitism in Europe and the Islamic world, [he] said that anti-Semitism in Egypt and particularly in the Palestinian Authority is much more worrisome and significant than in Europe.
Bukai compared the situation today with that of the Nazi days: “The world’s indifference to the Iranian threats is exactly as it was towards Hitler’s threats. Academia in those days supported the Munich agreement of capitulation – and today it’s the same story, with appeasement once again leading the way… Extremist Islam wants to bring the modern world back to the 7th century. They say this openly – not like the Nazis, who tried to hide their intentions.”
