new Columnist: Ben Gurion University anti-Israel Extremist Neve
by Steve Plaut

Aljazeera.com is the web site that is run by the Aljazeera print
magazine. Both are open instruments of the world jihad and
Islamofascist terror. Both are strongly opposed to any American or
Western attempts at capturing Osama bin Laden.
The Aljazeera web
site is a
strong lobbyist on behalf of the Hamas, demanding that it be
removed from the terrorism lists of Western countries, and that it
be "recognized" and engaged in negotiations by the West. It openly
demands that Israel be exterminated.
carries a subdirectory of articles under the heading "conspiracy
theories." No, it does not mock conspiracy theories, like those
of the 911 "truth" nuts, but rather publishes numerous articles
proving how true and correct the world's nuttier conspiracy theories
are, especially when they involve Jewish cabals. It loves reports of
powers of the Jewish lobby, supposedly dominating the world.
And under the
category of commentators on "conspiracy theories" and all round
celebration of jihad and Islamofacism, Aljazeera.com has a new
He is none other
Neve Gordon, a lecturer in political science at Ben Gurion
University, in fact the current chairman of the department of
political science there. At Ben Gurion University, Zionists and
pro-Israel people may not teach in the department of political
science. One lecturer who dared to hold pro-Israel dissident
opinions was fired by Ben Gurion University for his incorrect
Gordon is best
known for his
calls for Israel to be destroyed as part of a so-called
"one-state solution," more accurately actually a Rwanda solution of
finality to the problem of Jewish existence in the Middle East.
regularly denounces Israel as a fascist, terrorist, apartheid
regime resembling Nazi Germany. His "academic record" consists
almost entirely of anti-Israel hate propaganda. He has devoted
to serving as the Israeli apologist for
Neo-Nazi Norman Finkelstein. Gordon's writings are so venomously
anti-Jewish and anti-Israel that they are carried on the
web sites of Holocaust Deniers and Neo-Nazis. Professor Alan
wrote about Gordon in the Jerusalem Post on November 8, 2006: "
It is my opinion that Neve Gordon has gotten into bed with
neo-Nazis, Holocaust justice deniers, and anti-Semites. He is a
despicable example of a self-hating Jew and a self-hating Israeli."
Gordon is also
vehemently anti-democratic and
opposed to freedom of speech.
hates Israel and justifies the Arab terror against Israeli Jews.
When his own university campus was under attack by Hamas rockets,
Gordon denounced Israel for targeting the Gaza "university" that was
serving as the warehouse for those very same rockets. Gordon
was arrested when he entered Ramallah illegally to interfere
with Israeli military anti-terror operations and to show his
solidarity with Palestinian terrorists and mass murderers.
In recent months
Gordon became a regular columnist at Aljazeera.com, where he has
published articles claiming that Israel is
opposed to peace and pursuing violence for the sake of violence
claimed Israel is plotting to steal Arab lands, and described
violent Palestinians as "a colonized people resisting colonization."
You know, just in case Aljazeera would not be pro-terror and
anti-Semitic enough, Gordon feels the need to help it along.
So here we have
the spectacle of an anti-Semitic Israeli lecturer turning out
Bash-Israel and Bash-the-Jews propaganda for one of the most openly
anti-Semitic group of jihadniks on the planet. Ben Gurion University
regards Gordon's anti-Israel hate propaganda as "scholarship" and
"research" and granted him tenure on its basis, proving that serious
academic standards no longer are upheld at Ben Gurion University.
