Berkeley: College course on 'How to destroy Israel'

UC Berkeley campus
Folks .... it's all over for Jews in Chutz le'aaretz ... yup all over!
Open you eyes, guys..... 

The University of California (UC)- Berkeley has reinstated an explicitly anti-Israel course which discusses, among other anti-Israel issues, how "Palestine" would look without Israel, and examines "possibilities" to this end.

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has condemned the course, stating - in perhaps the understatement of the year - that a course would not be given "that advocated the dismantlement of any other country."

The course, entitled: ‘Palestine: A Settler Colonial Analysis,’ examines the history of the region from the 1880s “through the lens of settler colonialism.” 

The ZOA notes that this presumes fallaciously that Zionism is a colonial movement, rather than a national liberation movement. The course aims to “explore the connection between Zionism and settler colonialism," and also examines “the possibilities of a decolonized Palestine,” i.e., one in which Jewish self-determination and statehood is non-existent.

The course readings consist heavily of anti-Zionist passages from ‘new historians’ such as Ilan Pappé, Arab activists such as Edward Said, and others. It uses materials from organizations that seek to defame Israel such as Breaking the Silence. It even includes a reading from the Goldstone Report, whose anti-Israel findings were eventually rejected by its chairman, Judge Goldstone himself.

The course reading materials include nothing from scholars who do not condemn Zionism.

The course is sponsored, the ZOA states, by UC’s Hatem Bazian, co-founder of the radical anti-Israel movement, Students for Justice in Palestine.
