Brooklyn College Professor Dismissed For Views on IsraelFired even before he had a chance to teach his first class.
Brooklyn College in New York City is coming under criticism for dismissing an adjunct professor after a local politician claimed the professor was biased against Israel. Kristofer Petersen-Overton was let go last week, one day after New York Democratic State Assemblyman Dov Hikind complained about the professor’s politics. Petersen-Overton said he was dismissed before he even had a chance to teach his first class, a graduate seminar on Middle East politics.
Kristofer Petersen-Overton: “It seemed that one of the students in the class googled me and took objection to some of the political stances I’ve taken in the past vis-a-vis the Israeli, Palestinian conflict. They expressed these concerns to the head of the department, he asked her to wait until the class actually began before continuing to complain; unfortunately she didn’t. She started spreading this around on the blogs and quite quickly in fact, disturbingly fast, a campaign to vilify me was spread all over the internet.”
Isn't that a 'Thought Crime?'
‘Within 24 hours of the assemblyman’s phone call, I was fired’
JS: What was the official explanation for your firing, and why doesn't it make sense?Source: Counterpunch
KPO: I have not once been contacted by the department itself, but I was told that the official reason I have been fired is that I don't have a PhD, which is untrue, because no student teaching this course has a PhD, and there are of course many student teachers at BC who do not have their PhD's. And I'll point out that I am somewhat more qualified than many student teachers because I came into the program with a Master's degree, which many students who are teaching for CUNY don't have.
I was fired immediately after Dov Hikind contacted the school. He is an especially radical assemblyman who goes after people who he perceives as being anti-Israel. He's actually made a career out of targeting people for alleged anti-Israel bias.
Dov urges NYPD to stomp on Muslims rights by 'profiling,' saying that debate is "healthy."
Dov is a terrorist himself, having been mobbed up with Rabbi Meir Kahane's Jewish Defense League, which has been declared a terrorist group by the FBI.
Dov, like his counterpart, Rabbi Dov Zakheim, has sticky fingers.
Hikind was charged by federal authorities after multiple Jewish organizations were charged with embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars in government funds which were supposed to be used for children's services.You have to work non-stop to cover up the lies about the Holocaust™ and about Israel's role on the 9/11 FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB.
And cover-up the trail of where all those missing trillions that was STOLEN from Americans 401K accounts and pension funds, much of which MADOFF to Apartheid Israel, so you need rabid Zionnistas like the 'DOV.'
And this definitely has to be kept hidden from the world.
IDF Video 28/1/11 Settlers Killing Palestinian Teenager in Arak Burin
Armed Illegal Israeli settlers in the West Bank taking over Palestinian land, both private and public, usually walk down from their settlements, located on hilltops, to harass farmers in the surrounding area to prevent them from tending their land, their only source of living. The settlers plan is to drive farmers out and expand the settlements.
These evil acts, endlessly recorded in videos from all over the West Bank, usually end in either the Israeli army intervening and declaring the area a closed military zone, preventing Palestinian farmers from tending their land, or in the Palestinian farmers leaving the area to prevent harm to their persons or families, which in either case would give the result desired by settlers. Defending yourself from a settler is miraculously turned into an attack against an israeli and is punishable by a harsh prison sentence and financial burdens the poor Palestinian farmer family would almost find it impossible to bear.
