Hmm, let's have a look at the New York Times:
Next week, two leading voices of B.D.S., which stands for “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions,” are scheduled to speak at the college at an event cosponsored by a student group and the college’s political science department, prompting a furious response from pro-Israel groups on campus and others who say the department’s sponsorship amounts to tacit endorsement.Ok, so it's about BDS, and talking about BDS and, in particular, talking about BDS at Brooklyn College.
Now let's have a see of who is opposing the talk:
“You do not have a right, and should not put the name of Brooklyn College on hate,” said William C. Thompson Jr., the former city comptroller, who is running for mayor, at a news conference with more than a dozen elected officials, students and B.D.S. opponents outside the campus on Thursday. “They should be heard, but not with the official stamp of this college.”William C.Thompson? Never heard of him. Who else?
On one side are Alan Dershowitz, the prominent Harvard Law School professor, whopublished a column in The Huffington Post criticizing the sponsorship as academically biased, and the Anti-Defamation LeagueAh, now them I've heard of. Anyone else?
Assemblyman Dov Hikind, an Orthodox Jew and a Brooklyn College alumnus, had not seen it that way. Speaking at Thursday’s protest, Mr. Hikind said he believed the college was implicitly supporting B.D.S.Now I remember him from my previous post. But really is there anyone else who could bring a new sense of proportion to this zionist campaign?
“We’re talking about the potential for a second Holocaust here,” said Assemblyman Alan Maisel of Brooklyn.What a guy...
