Clever PR Move: Al-Quds University Offers Course on Hate Speech

Offering a summer course on hate speech that is only mentioned on its English website, will only be offered in English, and which focuses on "ethnic cleansing and genocide" suggests Al-Quds University is looking to score PR points but is unrepentant for harboring terrorist celebrations.

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.

    I thought it was a 'how to' course.

  2. The dental school at Al-Quds has a working relationship with the dental school at Hebrew University. So far that relationship has not been abrogated.

  3. Anonymous says:

    If you read the description of the summer course, it says that the course is meant: "to discuss ways of combating hate-speech and racism, with special emphasis on some of its gruesome consequences, such as wars, ethnic cleansing and genocide". Also, it is not just for international people, but it is "for both its students as well as for a limited number of students from the United States and Europe". In fact, contrary to what the article seems to suggest, Palestinian students study in English as well, and in fact this is not the only course that the university offers in English.

    Maybe the writer should have read the whole page and not just focus on the title of the course.
