The lead speaker in an anti-Israel program (“Revisiting the Pedagogy of the Oppressed”) scheduled for UC Davis on Thursday is Omar Barghouti. He is widely known as an organizer of the international movement to boycott and sanction Israel and is currently on a national tour touting his cause.
It’s quite interesting that Barghouti, a native of Qatar, has a master’s degree in ethics from Tel Aviv University, where he received financial and academic support from the Israeli government. If the sanctions he promoted were to take effect, thousands of Israeli and other Arabs — as well as Jews — would be negatively impacted.
How hypocritical can you get?
