The Tenured Radical now claims that a powerful Palestinian Lobby in the US is trying to Silence her and other Militant opponents of making Israel accountable for the Crime of Apartheid
I see the Tenured Radical who is hell bent on making sure the radical experiment called Zionism is never undone has a blog post whining about how she and other militant opponents of BDS are being silenced by a supposedly powerful Palestinian lobby in the US. If you don't believe me go to her blog and go read it. I can't make this stuff up. If I could I would be writing fantasy novels and outselling J.K. Rowlings. The Palestinians are a stateless people living in forced dispersal and under military occupation and apartheid. Their oppressors are unconditionally supported by the US government, media, and both major political parties. In academia there are only a few tiny voices of dissent critical of Israel and they have been constantly opposed by the traditional LEFTIST support of the Zionist project as represented by the Tenured Radical and others who are opposed to Palestinian rights. I wish the people who do support Palestinian rights did have the power to silence people like the Tenured Radical, but alas the power balance is all her corner. She will never be fired for her position on Palestine. Something that has not been true for a number of people critical of Israel such as Norman Finkelstein.
