Ben Gurion University

Ben Gurion University Rivka Carmi, BGU President, Staves the Closing of the Political Science Dept with Cosmetic Changes

As you recall, an international panel had called for shutting down the political science department at BGU because it is nothing but a pseudo-academic radical anti-Israel propaganda center engaged in anti-Israel hate and demonization. It is composed entirely of far-leftist anti-Israel extremists and no Zionist is permitted to teach in the department. And it is a department devoid of the slightest hint of serious academic standards or scholastic achievement. It is home to Neve Gordon, in the news this week for defending Iran's right to nuke the Jews, and also to the enemy of freedom of speech David Newman, Dean at BGU, who actually is a geographer, best known for his helping produce an anti-Semitic documentary for British TV.

Well, Rivka Carmi proclaimed that the school would make some cosmetic changes in the department to get the international panel off her back. Israel's Ivory Soviet, the Council on Higher Education, seems to be buying her spin. It has backed down from the decision to shut down this BGU department for jihadist studies.

I have long believed that Rivka Carmi, the cabbagehead president of Ben Gurion University, should in fact be a cosmetics saleslady. She proves how good she is at it in the latest development regarding the Bir Zeit of the Negev, Ben Gurion "University." See this

It has backed down from the decision to shut down this BGU department for jihadist studies. 150 people, including some of the worst anti-Israel tenured extremists in the world, had signed a petition backing keeping the politics department at BGU open.

The stench at BGU is one that even Chanel perfumes cannot cover up.
