Given that there was a course named to honor the first female Palestinian Arab homicide bomber, should American universities give it a hecksher of normalcy?
So while it is an excellent public relations move to announce that Al-Quds will have a summer course on Hate Speech, posting the course only on the English version of the school website, offering the course only in English, and refusing to denounce its previous open acts of terrorist glorification while maintaining a school museum dedicated to the “honor” of the “prince of martyrs” strongly suggests that the only bridges Al-Quds University has any interest in actively building and maintaining lead towards those violently anti-Israel factions it hosts on a regular basis.
