On February 8, 2016, Jewish professor William A. Jacoboson (Cornell Law School) posted an article at Israeli propaganda website Legal Insurrection accused professor Jasbir K. Puar (Rutgers) of Blood Libel.
On February 3, Jasbir Puar as a keynote speaker at the Vassar Campus had accused the Israel Occupation Force (IOF) of maiming and stunting of Gaza population. She was invited by several Vassar departments including the faculty of Jewish studies to address a meeting at the Rockefeller Hall.
Puar is an author and considered an authority on Queer Theory, a brainchild of American Jewish philosopher Judith Butler. Her address was titled, Inhumanist Biopolitics: How Palestine Matters, involving Israel’s target killing of Palestinian youth, using their bodies for organ harvesting, and pink washing. Watch below her lecture on the same topic at American University of Beirut three years ago.
Laurie Josephs, vice-president Alums for Campus fairness, an Israeli Campus Watch group, accused Vassar of antisemitism, saying: If that if one substituted the word “Jew” for “Israeli,” some of Puar’s claims read like “lifted straight out of Der Sturmer, the Nazi propaganda paper that regularly portrayed Jews as filthy manipulators driven by a mad lust for power, intent on destroying the German nation.
