When a cockroach is really a cockroach.
A team of pro-Israel students should have appeared at the dining hall (where pro-Paleostinians were pretending to be Israeli border guards demanding ID to pass) with placards taped to their bodies reading ”Palestinian terrorist suicide-homicide bombers” and demanded to be let through, with video running. Wash, rinse and repeat cycle.
Israeli professor a victim of political correctness
Scene at Claremont McKenna College, near Los Angeles
Here is a little story: Claremont McKenna College is a private institution near Los Angeles. On March 4, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) held a “West Bank checkpoint simulation,” for which they had written permission from the Dean of Students, Mary Spellman.
The simulation consisted of blocking the entrance to the college dining hall and rudely demanding that students show their IDs in order to enter. One wonders what went through the mind of the dean — did she see educational value in this activity?
In any event, a student was distressed by the event and called an Israeli Economics professor, Yaron Raviv, who went to the dining hall.
He reported he arrived to find students blocking the entrance, so he asked the dining hall manager to move them away from the door.
Soon after, the verbal altercation took place, as reports indicate [SJP member Najib] Hamideh – upset [that] Raviv aimed to move them – said, “Oh, you are faculty? I will hunt you down!” The professor responded: “What? You will hunt me down? You’re a fucking little cockroach.”
Exactly what was said remains unclear, but campus officials’ probe into the incident – during which nearly a dozen witnesses were interviewed – indicates that’s roughly the exchange between the two.
Raviv told administrators the “hunt you down” comment was particularly offensive because of his Jewish heritage, according to the review. Hamideh, for his part, denies saying it.
Students for Justice in Palestine also filed a bias complaint against the professor, stating “the term ‘cockroach’ must be taken in its specific historical context as hateful, racist, enemy imagery.”
