It seems the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) always has some Israel Problem.
On Monday, UCLA Jewish professor Gabriel Piterberg returned to teach his history class – for the first time after suspension over accusation of sexual harassment by two of his former female graduate students, Neferiti Takla and Kristen Glasgow in 2015. He had denied the accusations and UCLA refused to take any disciplinary action in the beginning. But then the women filed a federal law suit against UCLA. They reached a settlement last September, with one student receiving US$350,000 and the other, US$110,000 and a fellowship to support their studies at the UCLA. More money than the White House paid to Bill Clinton’s Jewish sexpot Monica Lewinsky.
Gabriel Piterberg was born in Israel. He studied at Hebrew University in occupied Jerusalem and even taught Middle East history at the Hebrew University for several years before joining UCLA in 1999.
So why the pro-Israel student lobby at UCLA and media is against a fellow Jew? A Google search shows that Piterberg is amongst the 8,000 Self-Hating Israel-Threatening (S.H.I.T.) Jews. According to Israel’s Campus Watchdog, Canary Mission, the poor soul is anti-Zionist, anti-Israel, and pro-BDS. Listen to Piterberg at a BDS meeting at the UCLA below.
UCLA professor of Jewish history, Polish-born David N. Myers addressing a gathering at the campus on September 20, 2016, said that establishment of both Zionism and Israel were result of Jewish persecution in Christian Europe, therefore, it’s wrong to blame the Israelis and Palestinians for the problem in the Middle East. He says Europe should admit its crimes in the past and help both Israelis and Palestinians to resolve it.
“Zionism would never had arisen were it not for the deep structure of European anti-Semitism and colonialism. After the unilateral declaration of state of Israel in 1948, the Jews who were the victims of longstanding European oppression drove 700,000 indigenous people to establish a state for the Zionist movement over 55% of Palestine – thus becoming oppressors of other people,” said Myers.
UCLA’s kippa-wearing former Student Regent Abraham “Avi” Oved, Israel-US dual citizen, was very active in defending the Zionist entity at the Campus.
“The Jewish community at UCLA is incredibly strong. Don’t let the headlines fool you. I was just at the right place at the right time when this issue came up, shedding light on antisemitism, anti-Zionism, anti-Israel, and a lot of other ‘isms’ that deserve attention and response,” says Oved.
Dan Lieberman, editor Alternative Insight, was born to Polish-US Jewish parents. His January 5, 2017 post claims that Israel doesn’t exist as a Nation State under international law.
