A Major Breakthrough at Last with regard to Tenured Treason in Israel
By Steven Plaut
Over this past weekend Israel’s Minister of Education Gideon Saar gave an interview in which he formally called for the firing of Ben Gurion University’s Neve Gordon. The news story appears in Hebrew in Maariv here: http://www.nrg.co.il/online/1/ART2/409/939.html and is also in other media.
Saar is a Minister from the Likud party. Gordon is the tenured extremist in the Department of Politics at Ben Gurion University who this week is the keynote speaker in a conference in Canada endorsing Arab terrorism against Jews. Gordon is a vile anti-Semite whose “academic” career has consisted mainly of churning out Bash-Israel propaganda. He is the leading voice in Israel calling for a world boycott of Israel. He regularly denounces Israel as a Nazi-like monstrosity and as an apartheid regime. He writes columns that appear in the Iranian state Holocaust Denying newspaper and on the web sites of Neo-Nazis and Holocaust Deniers.
In the Maariv report, Saar is cited as mocking the claims by BGU
president Rivka Carmi that she cannot legally fire Gordon. Saar, who
is a lawyer, dismisses the claim.
The Department of Politics at BGU is an anti-Israel indoctrination and propaganda center which the Israeli Council on Higher Education has called to be closed down.
This is the first time that an Israeli politician has openly called
for the firing of an anti-Israel tenured extremist.
