More "League of the Trembling Israelites"

I left this comment

so, “multiculturalism” denies any “multi” activity? Brooke is outside the “culturalism” that can be debated, listened to, mulled over? or is it that fear drives the decision to rescind? when do you feel “safe” enough to discuss? who defines – at a university (!) – the realm of discourse that is acceptable – to who?

at this site.

The story.

Heh. I just read last night about the "Society for Trembling Jews" -- coined by Benyamin Akzin in 1939 Washington DC. [See Rafael Medoff's book, Militant Zionism in America - Univ. of Alabama Press 2002.]

You have liberal English Jews that will ban a pro-Israel speaker because it might upset anti-Israel extremists on their campus.

So much for having open-mindedness and the courage of one's convictions.
