The Reading List: Why Do Pro-Palestinian Students Oppose Dialogue?

According to Philip Weiss, pro-Palestinian students at Brooklyn College don’t want dialogue with the pro-Israel group. Here’s a telling quote from a student there:

“We hold an anti-normalization stance on dialogue,” said Eeman Abuasi, 21, a co-founder of the Palestinian Club who grew up in Brooklyn, east Jerusalem and the West Bank city of Ramallah. “We don’t favor a dialogue with them because [we’re] not on the same political, social and economic level as them. You have one that’s an occupier and one that’s occupied.” [Mondoweiss]

Here’s the Wiesenthal Center’s list of the top ten anti-Semitic slurs of 2010. It’s a funny concept, but it is certainly not an indicator that Jew hatred has gone “mainstream,” as the site suggests. [Simon Wiesenthal Center]
