Three and a half years after Reinharz’s retirement, Hindley still beats up on him. In an email dated April 24th of this year sent to Sabine von Mering, Brandeis Associate Professor of German and Women’s and Gender Studies, regarding the university considering divesting from businesses that profit from fossil fuels, Hindley writes:

“With Reinharz and his Israelization of (and self-enrichment from) the campus . . . and now Lawrence (NOT of Arabia) [Pres. Fred Lawrence] and his al-Quds, AIPAC, and the anti-Islam Somali . . . what do you expect?”


Hindley compared the Jewish state to Nazi Germany in a 2007 listserv email with the subject line, “Plant a Tree, Bury a Palestinian.”

“Zionist olive trees grow wondrously on Palestinian corpses,” he claimed. “In that way, we combine great trees with our own holocaustic ethnic cleansing.”

Brandeis students and parents will have to determine if these are the academics they want educating impressionable minds and worth a nearly $250,000 investment.

Asked about the “Concerned” messages, Brandeis spokeswoman Ellen de Graffenreid said, “The e-mails are from the archives of a faculty listserv. A number of statements are taken out of context and come from a broad range of periods and times.” She said Brandeis, like other institutions, supports academic freedom, adding that the opinions expressed by faculty do not necessarily reflect those of the university.

Baine Campbell is currently in France and on a leave of absence until Aug. 17. Hindley could not be reached for comment.

  1. Brandeis University was founded to “embody [the] highest ethical and cultural values and to express its gratitude to the United States through the traditional Jewish commitment to education.” I am sure that, given the current state of affairs at the university, Justice Brndeis is turning over in his grave. I wonder if this poor dead man finally figured out that assimilationism does not solve the “Jewish problem?”
