7 Iyyar 5763 – May 9, 2003
Perhaps the fastest way to make sense of this book by Avram Bornstein, an untenured "anthropologist" at John Jay College of Criminal Justice within the City University of New York system, is to pay attention to how he uses quotation marks. The book routinely refers to Israel as an apartheid regime, with no quotation marks. And it routinely refers to Palestinian "terrorism" with them. Need we say more? We hope the tenure committee at John Jay is paying attention.
