Academic freedom? Forget it! Critical of Israel and its supporters in an MA thesis? Bring on an investigation!
So says Richard Klagsbrun, who publishes a poor excuse for a blog called “Eye On A Crazy Planet,” and got himself a spot in the National Post to spew his hatred. Free speech for everyone—except for…except for…
Read Jennifer Peto’s thesis for yourself—the one that shrill nutbar Israel-right-or-wrong lobbyists want thrown on a bonfire, along with its author.

May we finally put to rest the quaint notion that Speech Warriors™ mean what they say?
