Via email, a press release from B'nai Brith on the arrest of Ottawa professor Hassan Diab for a 1980 Paris Synagogue bombing (HT Catfur for the links):
“The relentless pursuit of justice by French authorities in this terrorist bombing spanned decades and crossed continents,” said Frank Dimant, B’nai Brith Canada’s Executive Vice President. “It is precisely this kind of determined resolve to fight terrorism, backed by international partners, which should be emulated by all jurisdictions.But do you have to let off bombs at synagogues to be considered an extremist? Surely Frank Dimant has some idea of the never-ending (anti-American, anti-Western, and Judephobic) conspiracy theories that pass for historical interpretation in our universities. Maybe it's time for B'nai B'rith to help set up a serious organization for professor watching in Canada?
“This case raises wider concerns regarding the potential for professors who harbour ideologies of hate to import their extremist views into a classroom setting and to influence young susceptible students.”
