Tufts in the grip of PC
Tom Gross reports that JPost ‘Palestinian’ reporter Khaled Abu Toameh, who is a Muslim, has had a speaking engagement canceled at Tufts University just outside of Boston for fear that it would be ‘misunderstood‘ by Muslims.
Moderate Palestinian journalist Khaled Abu Toameh, who is a subscriber to this email list, writes on his Facebook page:
“Tufts Friends of Israel, the pro-Israel group on campus, has decided to cancel a lecture by Khaled Abu Toameh, scheduled for next week, in fear that I will be seen as anti-Islam by the Arab students and would make Tufts Friends of Israel look bad.”
This follows the recent decision by the Israel Society at Cambridge University in Britain to cancel a talk by Benny Morris (see a previous dispatch on this list for details.)
Aren’t you glad there’s freedom of speech in the US?
