Jewish Sociology and Global Studies Professor William Robinson of the University of Santa Barbara in California sparked massive controversy recently after sending his students an email comparing photos of Jews in Nazi concentration camps with Palestinians in war-torn Gaza Strip.In a perfect world this professor would have his head handed to him by the administration of his school for blatant anti-Semitism. But with the ultra-left policies of 99% of US campuses, this professor will probably get an award and the students who protested the professors actions will get expelled.
The email, sent during Operation Cast Lead and titled "parallel photos of Nazis and Israelis", was sent to 80 students in his class and included 25 photos of Nazi victims, compared with similar photos from Gaza.
The email also included an essay stating, "Gaza in Israel's Warsaw – one big concentration camp for Palestinian… What we are witnessing is the slow process of genocide."
Two Jewish students immediately dropped the class and filed a formal complaint against Robinson with the Academic Senate’s Charges Committee. Robinson has hired an attorney and the hearing has been set for May 14.

This situation of permitting anti-Semitic attacks, both verbal and physical, on the campuses of the Universities of California has been and is continuing to be documented by many members of both the student bodies of these campuses, but also from members of the staff as well. A fine example of this has been (and is continuing to be) documented by Mr. Gary Fouse of Fousequawk. His article: UC Santa Barbara Professor Compares Gaza to Holocaust speaks out best against this professor and the others who act and think like him.
America's young men and women deserve educators who can and will keep their political views out of the classroom, not those who wish to disseminate hatred and bigotry.
