“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” Abraham Lincoln

Institutional Racism.

After some time of studying Jew haters, Jew baiters and associated cranks one thing becomes clear, the persistence of their obsession, they won’t give up.

So not unsurprisingly the political oddballs in UCU are at it again, stirring up the boycott campaign once more, despite the legal advice which indicated that such a proposal would be anti-discriminatory and against the law.

Engage covers it nicely in an article entitled:

The UCU needs to confront its own institutional antisemitism

“…
5. Why have there been proposals to exclude Israelis from British universities put in 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 due to the “apparent complicity of the Israeli academy”, while there have been no such punishments proposed in relation to the closures of universities in Zimbabwe, the occupations of Tibet, Chechnya, Western Sahara, Iraq and Afghanistan, the segregation of universities in Saudi Arabia, the crackdown on academic freedom in Iranian universities, the genocide in Darfur, the millions of people killed in Congo, the antisemitic university in Ukraine, the totalitarian dictatorship in North Korea, the murderous crackdowns on Islamist groups in Thailand, the failure to recognize the independence of Taiwan, etc etc?

6. Why does the leadership of the union not challenge the antisemitic discourse which still routinely infects the internal UCU activists’ email list?”
