Rotten Academia, Julio Pine

Jan 29, 2016 12:38

I am a Kent State graduate, and I got to know Pino a bit while an MA student in History. I was there the year he was hired, before he converted. Naturally I follow any news about him. You might like to know that a local newspaper, the Akron-Beacon Journal, printed an article (25 January) defending his rights (with which I cannot entirely disagree, as he has not been convicted of anything). A day or so later (don't remember exactly) a professor from the University of Akron, know for his pro-Palestinian stance, wrote a letter to the Beacon-Journal defending Pino and condemning US anti-terror policies. While I defend constitutional rights, I agree that it is an injustice not to accept the rights of those who defend Israel and criticize Islam.
