Harvard hosting conference to promote Israel’s destruction 
On March 3 and 4, Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government is  hosting a conference on the ‘one-state solution.’ That would be the  state that makes the ‘Palestinians’ of Judea, Samaria and Gaza into Israeli ‘Palestinian’  citizens, allows millions of descendants of ‘refugees’ to return and  then calls a plebiscite to negate the idea of Jewish self-determination.  The conference, which is an officially sanctioned event at Harvard, does not have a single pro-Israel speaker on any of its seven panels. So much for academic integrity.
According  to the working definition of anti-Semitism developed by  the European  Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), and recognized  by the United States Department of State,   the One State Conference, in implicitly “denying the Jewish people   their right to self-determination,” is an exercise in anti-Semitism.…The One State Conference website boasts the logo of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and has been in the planning for a year. According to The Jewish Advocate, Kennedy School Dean David T. Ellwood released a statement, saying:
I  want to emphasize once again that Harvard University and the Harvard   Kennedy School in no way endorses or supports the apparent position of   these student organizers or any participants they include. We hope that   the final shape of the conference will be significantly more balanced.
Furthermore, the university is quoted saying that the  event is being  at least partially underwritten by “modest” funds set  aside for student  activities. According to Melodie Jackson, Associate  Dean for  Communications, also quoted in The Jewish Advocate: “Generally administrators try to be supportive of student ideas for events that they are planning.”Increasingly,  assaults on Israel’s legitimacy and  survival are promoted by  academics, including at the nation’s most  prestigious universities.
Read the whole thing.I  guess they don’t teach students to think anymore at Harvard. After all,  if they could think, they could be entrusted to hear two sides of a  story and to choose the right one.
