Walt and Mearsheimer are widely seen as open anti-Semites, churning out conspiratorial tripe no better than what the “9/11 truther” nuts produce. The Anti-Defamation League dismisses them as anti-Semitic cranks, adding: “Mearsheimer and Walt start by blaming Israel for everything in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Once establishing Israel’s consistent guilt, from the creation of the state to present day, they then move to asserting that the ‘Israel lobby’ (which is loosely and inconsistently defined) in the United States uses every device and method of pressure politics to stifle criticism of Israel and to ensure America’s pro-Israel policy, against America’s true interests and to serve the interests of the Jewish state.”
The Harvard conference will also feature a number of obscure pseudo-academics, whose inclusion is evidently entirely due to their being Jewish anti-Semites. One of these speakers will be Marc H. Ellis, on the faculty at Baylor University. Ellis is someone considered by himself to be a Jewish theologian and thinker, and by himself alone. No one else in the world seems to consider his “philosophical” salad of Marxism and the quest for the annihilation of Israel to be Jewish theology. Well, no one besides the racist Reverend Jeremiah Wright, at least (Wright just adores Ellis). Ellis is basically a clone of Norman Finkelstein, but – unlike Finkelstein – was never dismissed by his own university for being a fraud. Ellis pretends to be something of a “Holocaust theologian,” but the only lesson he has managed to extract from the Holocaust is that it is necessary now to conduct a second Holocaust to rid the world of Israel.
Ellis thinks that the legacy of the Holocaust ought to be that it is the Jews’ duty to denounce Israel unambiguously and to support the demands and agenda of the Palestinian terrorists. He denounces all Jewish denominations and all rabbinic institutions for their failures to endorse Palestinian violence unreservedly. He is as hostile to the Jews of America as he is to those of Israel: “We as Jews come after the Holocaust, but we also come after the illusory promises of Israel and America. And we cannot find our way alone, only with others who realize that the promises they have been handed are also illusory.”
An even more obscure “academic” to be featured at the Harvard pogrom is one Dalit Baum, a mouth-foaming hater of Israel who teaches “gender studies” as an adjunct at my own school, the University of Haifa. She holds a degree in math, and spends her days in quest of being the planet’s leading lesbian for jihad. When she is not leading “dyke marches” (her term), Baum lectures to college students against the state of Israel and its right to defend itself. She pretends to be a victim of societal oppression against homosexuals and women, although the fact that she holds a job in a sociology department without having any degree in sociology better illustrates the nature of her so-called persecution. Baum created an organization of anti-Semitic lesbians calling itself Black Laundry, which meets in gay bars in Israel. Black Laundry members, of course, never convene in the areas controlled by the Hamas or Palestinian Authority to protest “oppression” of homosexuals. We can presume why.
Timothy McCarthy, an adjunct lecturer at Harvard and a self-proclaimed expert on “gender studies” and “human rights,” will be joining Baum. He will be explaining why the best way to achieve gender equality and human rights in the Middle East is to annihilate the only country in which they exist.
Other speakers at the “Nuremberg Rally off Harvard Square” will include anti-Semitic journalists, a gaggle of anti-Israel sociologists, law professors who define human rights in such a way that Arabs have a human right to murder Jews, but Jews have no human right to defend themselves, and even one liberation theology pseudo-rabbi. What they all have in common is their desire to see Israel exterminated. In what passes for academic pluralism and diversity these days, the Harvard conference will not have even a single speaker who thinks that Israel has the right to exist and the right to defend itself.
Harvard University has a bit of a history when it comes to coddling Nazis. In the 1930s, it was one of the American universities reluctant to hire Jewish and other refugees fleeing Nazi Germany. According to “The Third Reich in the Ivory Tower,” by Stephen H. Norwood (Cambridge University Press, 2009), Harvard University stood out above the rest in its moral failure and in its collaboration with Nazism. Many of the faculty members at Harvard were openly anti-Semitic, including Harvard’s president James Bryant Conant. Later, after the war, Conant served as US Ambassador to Germany and worked feverishly to get Nazi war criminals paroled and hired. He lobbied for appointments of Nazis to various public posts in Europe and at the United Nations.
Harvard’s law school dean, Roscoe Pound, was openly sympathetic to Hitler, vacationed in Germany and attended anti-Semitic events there. Harvard history professor William L. Langer strongly defended Hitler’s reoccupation and remilitarization of the Rhineland, which was the first step in launching World War II. More generally he served as a sort of academic apologist for the Nazis. The Nazi Professor Friedrich Schoenemann had taught at Harvard during and after World War I. During the 1930s, when he was at the University of Berlin, he went on a speaking tour of American campuses in 1933 to great acclaim, where his talks were titled “Why I Believe in the Hitler Government.”
Harvard went out of its way to host and celebrate Nazi leaders during the 1930s. The high Nazi official Ernst (Putzi) Hanfstaengl was invited as the Harvard commencement speaker in 1934. The wealthy Hanfstaengl had been one of Hitler’s earliest and most important backers. He was on record insisting “the Jews must be crushed,” and describing Jews as “the vampire sucking German blood.” Hanfstaengl was invited by a Harvard medical professor to serve as the honored speaker in the Harvard commencement ceremony and class reunion of 1934 and used the occasion for anti-Semitic incitement. He openly advocated the mass arrest or worse of German Jews. The student paper, the Harvard Crimson, defended Hanfstaengl. Harvard called in the Boston police to arrest Jews and others protesting the visit, and they were charged with “illegally displaying signs.” When Hanfstaengl returned to Germany from Harvard, he was personally welcomed by Hitler.
So the “Destroy Israel Conference,” AKA the “Nuremberg Rally near the Charles River,” is simply upholding a proud Cambridge Ivy heritage.
The “one-state solution” as promoted by the Harvard pseudo-academic pogromchiki should really be called the Final Solution.
