Joel Beinin's Love Letter to the 'New Protest Generation'
Reprinted from the Campus Watch blog:
Stanford University professor Joel Beinin, who has a long history of making inflammatory statements about America, Israel, and his critics, remained true to form in a recent lecture for a local cable channel. Stanford senior Jonathan Gelbart's report, filed for Campus Watch, appears today at FrontPage Magazine:
Stanford University history professor Joel Beinin made the latest in a series of appearances on the Peninsula Peace and Justice Center (PPJC) Palo Alto cable television program "Other Voices" on November 2, 2010. The subject of the show was "Israel-Palestine: A New Protest Generation" and, as before, it provided a platform for Beinin's anti-Israel animus.
The show began with a brief discussion of what Beinin delightedly called the "overall decline" of the United States, evidenced by the "failure even at the crude military level in both Iraq and Afghanistan" and the resulting inability to employ the military "as an instrument of policy."
