Remember the story from a couple of days ago about the University of Michigan professor who refused to give a letter of recommendation to a student who wanted to study abroad in Israel because he supports the Palestinian cause and thinks Israel is evil? Well, here’s yet another example of the type of typical actions anyone with open eyes and mind have come to expect of the benevolent, civil rights-supporting Palestinian Authority:
The PA is about to start sending support payments to the family of a Palestinian who was arrested after he stabbed an Israeli-American man to death at a West Bank shopping mall. The victim was the grandson of a Holocaust survivor and father of four, who even after being stabbed, managed to climb a fence in pursuit of his attacker, shoot and wound him, to stop him from harming anyone else. The killer’s family will get $390 a month from the PA until he’s released.
US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said that since 1994, US taxpayers have given more than $10 billion in aid to the Palestinians, and while he doesn’t downplay that most went to humanitarian aid, it’s “unconscionable” that the PA continues to spend any of the money to support the families of terrorist murderers and encourage more killing. Fortunately, Israel collects taxes that support the Palestinians, and they’ve begun withholding the amounts that the PA pays to killers’ families under what they call the “Pay for Slay” law.
To bring all this back home, when parents pay tuition at the University of Michigan, do they know their kids are being taught by a professor who actually thinks the Israelis are the bad guys in this situation?
And speaking of university officials who put indoctrination over education, Harvard announced that next month, the recipients of its W.E.B. Du Bois Medal, the university’s “highest honor in the field of African and African American studies,” will include overrated quarterback and National Anthem kneeler, Colin Kaepernick. Harvard claims the winners “have all had an outsized impact for the better on our society, our nation, and even our world.”
I suppose that’s true. Thanks to Colin Kaepernick, millions of Americans once again have family dinners together, enjoy healthy outdoor activities, and read more books, all instead of watching NFL games on TV.
